Markus Ng (1985-2009)

This morning at around 10:30am, Gabrielle brought to me a news that really way beyond my imagination. A good friend, Markus Ng has just passed away in sleep over the last night. His family found him this morning.

It is a shock to know about it. He is such a young guy. Someone who is of my age group and look perfectly fine. The last time I met him was in the Clinton's lecture, and before that at Kat's Hari Raya open house. He last smsed me, on the eve of Chinese New Year, talking about Ziad and Kat's wedding. Markus was the guy that brought to get involved with UKEC on 1st MSLS.

Markus struck to me as a very sincere friend. Knew him initially online at and over the past few years, have had the opportunities to work with him in several activities and met him in various events. He is always cheerful and fun to hang out with. He is always energetic and positive thinking.

His desire to contribute to country and community is definitely something very laudable. His desire to join civil service and serve the nation, his dedication to serve the community through his involvement with UKEC, CPPS, UNICEF and many other platforms show his selfless personality.

Am very saddened by his passing, especially at such a young age. He is definitely someone that still has a lot of potential to give back to community.

Deepest condolences to Markus's family.

For his memorial, visit

Did he just pass away without any warning?
Life is indeed unpredictable. Such a healthy person can just pass away like this. =(
