Thanks, Andy, for the work you do to honor others. Love the layout on your blog. Amazing work at your age.
He comes from a musical family. His grandfather was the founder of the Dondang Sayang group... and was a Musician himself who also wrote pantuns (Malay folk poems) and compose tunes on his violin which is still displayed at the National Museum under the early Peranakans Section.
Andy bro, Me and my two girls and brothers and friends in the Dover area have traveled many times with Walter for the Malaysia Cup in Selangor. Those were the good old days. Unfortunately, the old block where he used to live at Holland Drive and Bouna Vista area has long been demolished but memories linger on. Bless him.

Good day Andy, I met Mr Walter Koh in a pub a few years back. He is ever ready to sing and always the consummate showman. He is still rocking it up at the age of 86. Wow! Now through your article, I know much more about him. Thank you, sir.
Andy, have you met Walter's son Patrick Koh who is a renowned crooner? Next time Pat is in town, you should go listen to him sing.
I have ma'am. Thanks again. He's known as PAT 'KING' KOH in Hawaii similar to NAT 'KING' COLE. It's on the blog's comment page and provided by HAPPY TAY, VANCOUVER'S ELVIS PRESLEY, who was from SG. Again thanks, Nora. Appreciate all the info. you provided.
What a great honor & blessing it is to have others remember your music & the joy it brings to others. Thank you, Andy and everyone for honoring our Dad with this blog. He will be blessed.
