In 1992, the Sibu Chinese History book was published.
In 1999, the Sri Aman Chinese History book was released.
In 2010, the Sarikei Chinese History book was launched. 





Several primary and secondary schools in Sarikei received a copy of this book for the students to learn about their heritage.



The rest of the articles gave a posthumous salute to Mr Yii Yuk Seng, the ex-fireman who died in the disastrous fire of Block 5 Right Repok Road this year. He also researched small towns like Pakan and Julau for this book.





To write a history book is not easy because facts of the events, time and places need to be researched and checked. If you flipped through the book, you will learn how the pioneers sacrificed self interest to set up the society and put high priority on education of the new generations for a brighter future. Can we say the same about the current generations?
