Hi Delvy,
Thanks for visiting the blog and writing. Glad to know you are Amir Samsudin's child.

I could have met him a long time ago.




I am trying to contact members of Pest Infested. We were good friends in 1970 when I was in Singapore.

If you can get this message to any of them please ask them to E-mail _____. This message is from Martin Mitchell.

I lost contact when Singapore telephone numbers were changed.

I have something they might be interested in.
