Alan was a nice chap,hardworking and courteous. Although he was very strict with his crew,he was respected by them. He was an outstanding supervisor.
Alan loved the figure or number 4. He lived in a house with number 4 as his address in the East Coast.Singapore. He drove around in a Mercedes Benz with a license plate consisting of 4 4s i.e 4444. He told us 4 was his favorite number and it has brought him luck.
In S'pore and elsewhere most Chinese do not like the figure 4 because it means death ( pronounce as see in Hokkien,sei in Cantonese which means death).
So as you can see Alan has been flirting with SEI or SEE. I hope Alan is not consummed by SEI or SEE. Let's wait for a few more days or weeks to see whether anyone can tell us what has happened to Alan.
