The Jade Bracelet (Part 1)

I would like all of you to answer the following questions and publish them to your blogs as you go through the text:
The meaning of the jade bracelet
  1. What is the relationship between Mrs Wong and Mrs Lee?
  2. Is Mrs Wong a filial daughter? Give three reasons.
  3. What is Ah Kow's real name? How is he related to the dying woman in the short story?
  4. Why is Sam Poh Tong mentioned in the short story?
  5. What do you think the jade bracelet symbolises? Give your reasons.
  6. Do you think Siew May is naive? Cite your reasons with quotations.
  7. Did Siew May get the jade bracelet in the end? Why?
  8. Do you like the story? Why?


  1. Hmmm... the questions you posed do titillate my senses, you know. And I'm dying to read about the dying woman now. Is she one of the major characters? Also, does the Sam Poh Tong mentioned in the story have anything to do with this one :

  2. If that Sam Poh Tong is the SPT in the link, I saw it up close about a month ago. :)
