Dear Sir,

I do not know, whether this is a right forum for this matter, but appreciate if your good self or anyone could assist me.

Way back in 1968-69, I was taught by a Peace Corps teacher by the name of Miss PATRICIA PEACOCK, at a small coastal village by the name of BAKO, under the division of KUCHING, SARAWAK, in EAST MALAYSIA.

I was 12 years old then, and was in Primary 6, and my name is WAHID CHE. The only thing that, I remember with regards to this teacher of mine was, she was from a state/city called Buffalo, USA.

I believe this teacher of mine is now in her early 60s years of age. As I would like very much to get in touch with her, appreciate your good self or anyone who happen to know her to contact me at this e-mail address - wahidche@gmail.com.

Thanking you in anticipation.

Warmest regards.

Wahid Che.
