When the shocking news broke out, I was numbed to the core and in great disbelief.
All of us prayed that it was not true.
It has been some years I had not received such a great shock on such a gruesome death.
My cousin informed me that KH was murdered!
The corpse was beyond recognition and DNA had to be tested.
It was the longest wait to hear the results while the poor body was still in the cold morgue at Temerloh for almost a week.
Meanwhile, Chinese newspapers reported wild stories and splashed all the photos!
This particular photo caught my eye, sending my mind down the memory lane. Often, I went to the Choong's family mansion along Western Road when I was a kid.
Now, the reality has finally crept in today and KH has departed forever.
The funeral will be on Wednesday.
The Memorial will be held at Ritz-Carlton KL.
