So nice to read about Hashimah (born Wong Siew Hong) who was reunited with her biological siblings in Johor Bahru yesterday.
Hashimah, an insurance consultant, was given away at birth 49 years ago to a Malay family.
"I am very happy," she said, surrounded by seven of her brothers and sisters (picture top left).
Read this happy story here.
And so terribly heartwrenching to be reading this story about four-year-old Shearwey Ooi Ying Ying (picture left) whose charred remains were found strewn in at least four different places -- a cemetery, river and an apartment dumpsite in Paya Terubong and another river in Jalan Air Itam.
Her mother, Jess Teh Hui Wen, 28, reported her missing on Friday. (Picture top right is of Jess with a friend.)
Police found her remains after they detained a couple -- a 28 year-old woman who is a close relative of Ying Ying and her boyfriend, in his 30s.
It was the boyfriend who took police to the gruesome find.
With a crime story like this, the newspapers are not naming names. But you can figure out who the "close relative" is.
Read the stories here and here.
Oh... poor little Ying Ying. How could she have fought the monster to save herself?
