    The building was the first five-storey residence in the Straits Settlements and local Hokkiens called it goh chan lau (five storey bungalow). Later, it was named the Chinese Residency when Tek Soon’s brother lived there in the 1900s. Much later again, the Tye brothers turned it into the Raffles-by-the-Sea hotel in the 1910s. Again, much much later, it became the P’i Joo Girls’ School (named after another old towkay, Leong Fee or Liang P'i Joo), the Government Girls’ School and finally, the Shih Chung Branch School.

     Future Plans
    While I was in Georgetown, I asked a local trishaw driver about the school. He said it have just been bought for RM400,000 by a chineese buisness man. Pretty good if you ask me! In the middle of the city, just accross from the water and on a 2acre block! Im guessing he wants to demolish it to make way for some nightclub or something.
