The Star’s London-based veteran journalist, Taiping-born Tan Kah Peng has died after a long battle with the big C. He was called to rest on 19th May in London. Tan had his early education in Taiping and subsequently went to Australia for his tertiary education, there he obtained his degree in politics from Monash University in Australia. In the early 1970's he joined the NSTP; then for some years, when Datuk Paul Leong was MP for Taiping, Tan was his political secretary. In 1990, he returned to his first love, journalism, and joined the Star as an associate editor and after a brief sabbatical rejoined the paper in 1996 when he was transferred to the paper’s London office. His last posting there was as the Star's European Union Bureau editor. Farewell a fellower Taipingnite.
