Taylorian, Journalist, Friend: R.I.P. Joash Wee


 Rest in Peace: Joash Wee

A student, a Taylorian, a journalist - I have lost a friend this year. Ronnie James Dio's death was a shock but what more shocking is that I have lost a friend who has similar traits: surname, (political) ideologies and music genre.

While watching a local news on television, I saw list of familiar names but assumed it will not be him. So I tried to see his Facebook page; there I saw many condolences on his Facebook Screen. R.I.P. Joash Wee . It was absolutely fucking unbelievable.

I believe this year he was about to graduate from 3 years of studies while twinning with the University of South Australia (UniSA) programme with Taylor's College Petaling Jaya: School of Communication; specifically majoring in Journalism. He has yet to be another great journalist.

Unfortunately, everything is unpredictable and inevitable. It's just like that. But, from a different perspective, above wherever you are between the limbo, have a safe journey and godspeed if there is such a place! Take care! You and your siblings! May the light draws the pathline.

Thanks for supporting SOC Media Carnival 2009!

We will miss you!

PEKAN, June 17 (Bernama) -- Five people were killed and three others badly injured in an accident between a multipurpose vehicle and a trailer lorry at Km87 of Jalan Kuantan-Segamat on Thursday, police said.

Pekan police deputy chief DSP Amran Sidek said the dead were identified as Roland Wee Seng Hock, 56, senior assistant of a secondary school in Muar, Johor, his son Joash Wee, 23, two daughters Jasinth Wee, 18, and Jelyn Wee, 16, and mother-in-law Lim Kim Boon, 79.

Those injured were Seng Hock's wife, Chew Chin Loi, 54, and two other children of theirs, Jemima Wee, 17, and Josiah Wee, 13, he said, adding that they were under treatment at the Tengku Ampuan Afzan Hospital in Kuantan.

The Seng Hock family, from Taman Mas Ria, Muar, was believed to have been on the way to Melaka in a Naza Ria MPV after having spent three days of the school holidays visiting a family friend in Kuantan when the accident occurred at 7.45am.

The empty trailer lorry was going from Segamat to Kuantan, he said, adding that the slightly injured driver had been detained.

Amran said Seng Hock, his mother-in-law and two of his children died on the spot while Jasinth died during treatment at the Muadzam Shah Hospital due to a severe head injury.

This was the second bad accident in almost a fortnight on Jalan Kuantan-Segamat. On June 7, six people were killed in an accident about 10km away from today's accident spot.
