My personal details:


Name: Louis Cheong Koon Hoe

(nicknamed "China Kayu" from the time I set foot in Kampung Kirkby)


Went for the Teacher-Trainers' Course in 1962




Since we started the Aerobic Dance Exercise in January, 2005 the attendance of the enthusiastic Kirkbyites has been very encouraging. The regular exercisers, Kirkbyites, specially flown to Manchester by BOAC ARGANOUT in 1951, 1953 and 1954 are:  Muttaiya Ratnasabapathy, Othman Dahlan, Zain, Syed Abu Bakar, Siti Rohani, Zainal Arshad and his wife,Jane, Neelambigai, Ramlah, Fong Shook Yen, Inom and her husband, Ahmad Hashim.  We hope more Kirkbyites of all batches will come forward and put their best flexible legs forward to the accompaniment of tunes of the 60s, 70s, 80s and even 2000s.  Louis Cheong (1954 – 1956), the instructor, is delighted to share his dancing experiences with his fellow Kirkbyites.

Objectives of LIAE


 1. This Aerobic Exercise is to further develop the five components of physical fitness:

 cardiovascular fitness, muscular endurance, muscular strength, flexibility and Body   

 Fat  Composition.


2.  It is an appropriate time that we Kirkbyites should gather and exercise together, thus creating an atmosphere of comradeship and fraternity of folks from the same kampong “Kirkby   The   primary aim is to break the ice – the “batch barrier.” We are very proud of Kirkby and want to perpetuate the name of Kirkby, but we don’t even know our “kampong” neighbours who were from Kirkby.  I hope this “informal aerobic dance” can bring us together and get to know each other better.




Note: This by-weekly get-together was mooted by Othman Dahlan of 1953 -1955
