|Thanh Quy Tran and Phuong Uyen Tran|
Phuong Uyen Tran's father, Mr. Thanh Quy Tran was told to have been running an illegal business. He also reported him to the electricity board, claiming he was using more than his allotted electricity quota.
The electricity board sent officials to investigate. My father could have ended up in a lot of trouble, but my mother appeared on the scene by then and used her legendary negotiating skills to resolve the situation.
In his later years, my grandfather's concern switched from the possibility of prosecution to my father going bankrupt. He decided to intervene again, secretly giving my maternal grandfather a stash of gold to hand over to my father in the event his business failed.
But he was also not quite secret enough. Within a month, my father had found out and persuaded my maternal grandfather to them invest the money in the business instead. His own father never discovered what happened.
Unfortunately, my grandfather continued to remain at loggerheads with my father about his business activities until he died in 1991.
|My father's time at the police station also failed to deter his business ambitions. But for years afterward, it did mean he had to keep showing the electricity board he was not using more than his quota. So, he continued working crazy hours in a tiny little room, desperately trying to stay ahead of rampant inflation.|
Thanh Quy Tran's tough childhood
My father's troubles at the orphanage made him resilient and taught him to overcome obstacles, including how to of a bad situation. He was only ten years old when he arrived there in 1963.
He soon had to toughen up. Many of the other children had turned into thugs after being tormented by the nuns, and bullying was rife. A large percentage of those boys were not just orphans, but were also the discarded mixed-race offspring of American GIs: abandoned, rootless, and disparaged cultural anomalies.
My father was only at the orphanage in the first place because my grandfather decided to hide him there for fear his two stepbrothers would kill him for the inheritance his mother had left her three children. She had died when he was just nine after being struck by a coach as she dashed across a road in her haste to issue orders to workers at her trucking company.
My grandmother had considerable business acumen and had amassed a small fortune. Likewise, my grandfather was a successful my grandparents clearly passed on the business gene to their son.
My father showed early promise as a trader when his father made allow keep annual visits to the orphanage. The nuns did not allow children to al money, so my father pretended to hand over his a, hidden away in his sandal.
