    Wong Swee Chin or famously known as Botak Chin was one of the most notorious and feared criminal in Malaysia in the early 60’s and 70’s.

    He was born in Kuala Lumpur in the year 1951.

    On the 11th of Jun 1981, Botak Chin was brought out of his cell; his face was covered with a black cloth.

    He was taken down to the chamber of death, and he looked as calm as he had always been.

    At the age of 29, Botak Chin was hung to death, ending the episode of the most notorious and legendary gangster in Malaysia.






    This little thing has been bugging me ever since.

    Why is he called "Botak" when he had a head full of hair and had never been shaven bald? scratch

    A group of school children wearing surgical masks at the peak of the worst haze spell in Malaysia in 1997.

    Photo taken somewhere in KL. Can anyone recognize where this place is?

    A Chinese man peddling his wares on a five-foot way in ancient Kuala Lumpur, around the 1880s.

    Notice his dressing and hairstyle are similar to Yap Ah Loy. With a Manchurian pigtail.  Very Happy
