And there's no one quite like young Tanesttran Lournard Chandran who manages to get under his father's skin and keep him on his toes. Despite time spent away at boarding school, Tanesttran's own creative instincts have only heightened his admiration for dear Dad.

BP Healthcare founder Dato’ Beh Chun Chuan is nothing if not a devoted family man. This affable gent is proud to have his hardworking kids by his side in the family business, including the more reserved Garvy Beh, who once helped his father revamp the entire BP Healthcare website while on summer break from school – a story we're certain Dato' Beh repeats fondly at family functions.

It's no secret that Barry and Colin Edmonds have had a lot of time to bond over the years, be it over opening their eco-conscious retreat, The Sticks, in Fraser's Hill or in deep conversations about the legacy they'd like to leave behind.

Today, there's never a dull moment at home for Bobby and his wife Shen-Tel with Benjamin and his little brother Kingston around to brighten their day.
