The home is where it all begins. Anyone growing up in a politically-charged atmosphere, where politics is as much a part of the dinner menu as any other dish, will be exposed to all the right ingredients for a political future. Parents may not deliberately chart the political path for their children and some, in fact, would choose to travel other paths, away from the public spotlight. More interestingly, some may even choose to go political, but via a different party. Still, it is always the homes of our political leaders that are closely watched to see if the children will follow in their footsteps. In this political season for both the MCA and the Gerakan, we focus on Hee Leong and Hee Keat, sons of former MCA chief Tun Ling Liong Sik and also Lim Si Pin, son of Gerakan chief Datuk Seri Lim Keng Yaik. 

HE grew up in an environment where politics was the order of the day. Even conversations during family dinners revolved around it. Ling Hee Leong has never known any other life.
