My Book & Tribute Featured On The Morning Paper


Here's a translated summary of the article:


Event: A memorial service was held last Friday by Noontalk Media for the late artiste Aloysius Pang Wei Chong, marking his fifth anniversary.


Low-Key Intent: The organizer, Dasmond Koh, intended the service to be low-key, inviting only those who genuinely remembered the late artiste, not fans seeking other celebrities.


Book Tribute by Brother: Jefferson Pang, the older brother and a banking professional, authored a 120-page English book titled "What I'd Give To Say Once More." It's a tribute to his brother, covering Aloysius's past and self-help themes, aimed at guiding the younger generation.


Inspiration for the Book: The idea came from the memories of Aloysius's room, cluttered with books and items, many of which were passed on by Jefferson.


Legacy and Teaching: Jefferson believes in teaching something valuable for the late artiste to be remembered. The book targets readers aged 20-40, exploring the meaning of life.


View on Education and Parenting: He expressed dissatisfaction with Singapore's education system, advocating for evolved parenting approaches that nurture interests aligned with future careers.


Book and Charity: The book is available on Amazon and a personal site (Lifestoriesco.com). Jefferson self-funded 1000 physical copies, donating 500 to Club Rainbow Singapore. He encourages donations and feedback on his first attempt.


Writing Process: The writing began in early 2023, taking about 150 hours over several months, with a cost of around SGD 6000. Jefferson consulted other local artiste with Noontalk Media to enrich the content.


Personal Life: Following his brother's passing, Jefferson welcomed two children, providing a shift in the family's focus and helping with the grieving process.


Memorial Event: He refrained from crying at the memorial, focusing on inspiring others and keeping his brother's memory alive.


First-Time Author: The article praises Jefferson's literary skills and emotional depth in his first book.
