With the greatest possible respect, I feel there is little relevance between this heading "The Japanese in Penang" and the subsequent subject matter ie. the relationship between two cousins.

Perhaps it might be better to explain in some detail the real connection between Mazalifah Aziz, her adopted mother Aishah Abdullah and the latter's husband Aziz Yamani, the proprietor of Asia Motors garage in town. Then the choice of heading would have made some sense.

The heading would make even more sense if it was shown how Mazalifah's personal life was affected by the Japanese Occupation in Penang. I am not the best person to enlighten you on this as I am not quite certain if these revelations would be welcomed by her family members.

In any case, the best person to relate this account would be someone directly connected to Aziz Yamani himself.
