During World War II, Uncle George worked as a police man and one of his tasks was registration of rice coupons.  One hot day while on duty, he noticed a young woman with a crying baby in the queue.  Out of compassion, he sought the permission of the people in front to allow the young woman to jump the queue and subsequently helped her with the registration for the rice coupons.
About a year later, after the Japanese had surrendered, while walking along a street he was interrupted by a car tooting at him.  He turned around to look and saw  that the woman in the Mercedes Benz was waving at him signaling him to go forward.  He went near to the car and the woman asked if he used to work as a policeman at certain station during the occupation.  After a short conversation, the woman told Uncle George that she was the young woman with the crying baby and she didn’t forget the kindness Uncle George offered her.  This lady was “Mei Chee”!!  Apparently Mei Chee was quite well off and owned a provision shop.   Her generosity and kindness towards the needy were apparent even then.  At that time, Mei Chee’s virtues had extended to honoring The Sangha and consequently knew Tok Raja in Kelantan, whom she visited often.  One day she confessed to Uncle George her intention to renounce the World and join the holy life which she did eventually.  Thus the bond of Mei Chee, Uncle George, Tok Raja and his nephew Phor Than was sealed.

In the early days before Uttamayanmuni Singapore come into existence, Tok Raja visited Singapore frequently upon request from lay people and devotees to help with unsolvable problems.  Tok Raja was very well known for his miraculous remedies (please check out his personal website for full details).  One fateful day, Tok Raja was again visiting Singapore at the request of some devotees to help an ailing family member.  Tok Raja, accompanied by his nephew Phor Than, Uncle George and Mei Chee was enroute to the hospital when their taxi ran out of petrol and so the taxi driver turned into a Shell Petrol Station along Adam Road for refill.  The  manager of the Petrol Station, Mr Tan, came running up to the taxi upon seeing The Sangha members in it and unconditionally offered a piece of his land at Choa Chu Kang for them to build a temple.  Thus the birth of Uttamayanmuni Singapore.
