ABOUT THE AUTHORS
Chong Zi Liang is a sub-editor with The Straits Times whose features, columns and photo essays appear in Singapore’s national broadsheet.
In 2009, he worked for the Nepali Times in Nepal, where he first got to know the retired Singapore Gurkhas. The experience inspired him to base his final year project in university on the Gurkha Contingent of Singapore. You can view selected works from his reportage here.
