The character that I like from the story, Tanjong Rhu is Mr.Li. I like him because he is a caring person. For the evidence, he bought  his mother a pair of binoculars to his mother so that she could see far. 

 his mom. :

-She stills remembers the memories when she and her family living in Tanjong Rhu.
-Always pray to his husband in traditional way.
-Dosen;'t let other people pray for his husband. aka grandfather.
-Still remembers her husband's ship yard before it was torn down about 30 years ago.
