    Notes 
    • North Borneo: There were others in Jesselton who contributed to those lovely days in my life. I think the warmth and the relaxed atmosphere, which is unavoidable in the islands, enters the spirit. The English officers for whom I worked, and their families, seemed to take me in warmly as an equal. Though I was in a remote, tropical colony, my appetite for the international was met in their company. ... after I was transferred to work with Mr John Macartney, who had earned his master's in political science at Cambridge University. The Macartneys also welcomed me into their lives ... [Christina Ching Tsao, 'Shanghai bride', Hong Kong University Press, 2005; p. 237]
