Hong Kong University Press

Sir Y. K. Pao started his banking career when he was twenty-two. Because of his charisma and interpersonal skills, he swiftly built up a network in the Shanghai banking world. He was later sent to the Bank of Shanghai after the war, and he worked with P.C. Lee, the author's uncle, for an extended period of time. Yet his job was dangerous as he faced threats of being killed by the local underworld gangs. Lu Xuzhang, the author's third elder uncle, joined the Communist Party during the war in the 1940s. He advised Sir Y. K. Pao that he should resign from his job in the Nationalist government-controlled bank and move to Hong Kong. When China opened up in the early 1980s, the author's parents got an opportunity to return to their motherland to pay a visit to their families.
