My Walking Grandma

They walked from Kuala Lumpur (the meeting of 2 muddy rivers) to Singapore. That's like walking Welly to Alkd, 600kms. Only thing is, they were trying to get away from the Japanese soldiers.

They walked following railway tracks. Hiding in the jungle by day, and walking by night. It took them a few months I think.

In those days, a woman's wealth was held in her jewellery. My walking Grandma would have had to sell or trade those to survive the long journey.

When they got to Singapore, the Japanese were already there. They went back to a home under Japanese occupation.
