The Perak Turf Club opened a 6 lane bowling alley sometime in 1964 and that was well before there was any in Selangor or Singapore. As soon as the bowling alley was opened in Ipoh, I started to bowl there with Billy Tjoa, Peter Lim, Victor Leong, Philip Leong, Dato' Yeoh Cheang Lee etc. There were two instructors there by the name of Ah Wong and Ah Kok.


About a year later, Shah's Bowl opened in PJ followed months later by Jackies Bowl Katong in Singapore. So by the time the bowling alleys in PJ and Singapore opened, many of us from Ipoh were already "veteran bowlers". I continued bowling when I joined the University of Singapore in 1966 and there was a Inter Varsity/College Bowling League which my team (Titoni) won because we had three bowlers from Ipoh out of a team of five Smile
