Condolences to the Tees

It is with the heaviest heart to inform that a very good friend of ours, ST Tee, has lost his life in a car accident. His car crashed into a stationary crane at NKVE on Tuesday afternoon. I supposed by now you must have read about this piece of news in the paper.

There will be no postings until... I'm not sure when... I guess when I have the inspiration again.

I'm very disturbed with the way things are being done in this country and I feel sorry for the Tees to have lost a wonderful husband and father; and for myself, a very great, helpful, wise and kind friend; all because how some arseholes took things for granted. I'm not going to speculate anything until a thorough investigation have been done by the Police and sincerely hope there will be witnesses stepping up to offer any information that they could share.

Police urged those with information on the incident to contact Chief Inspector P. Nallusamy at 03-55102222 or the nearest police station. So if you've witness anything on that day, please do contact the police. Thank you.

Unker Tee, we wish you a great life in Heaven. Your laughters will echoes through the corridor of our memory.

Lavendar, in your silence and grief, we are here with you always. Let us know how we can help.

That is a trajedy and u have our condolences. Sad that this type of
v believe negligence( no clear warning signs probably/tidak apa attitude) on some 3rd party(ies) caused innocent another life to go like this. Sad that this thing still continues in our so-called first class infrastructure.

Even having witnessed an accident, many of us are not conscientious enough to standup as witness. We may continue to blame it to the system for not being conducive but lets look into ourselves and make the change. The system reflects public apathy. The very fact that AAM which supposed to represent the interest of drivers and other car clubs are not even thinking about lending a voice in having the government to rectify many anomalies. Did we got the right representation there?

Don't let something happens to our loved ones to jolt us into action. The irony is that bureaucracy is always against those who are at the receiving end. Yet again, this public apathy can be turned into a public outcry for the respective Ministry to give some attention. Many things will fade into oblivion.....till we, the public, demand for correction!

For Unker, I hope he is up there and benefit all the prayers we are saying for him. I don't know about you but I will say a daily prayer for him (and his family) everyday for the next 1 month. Many can't be there for them physically but I hope many can be with them spiritually. This I would do.

Tummythoz said...

It's very sad and tragic to lose someone close and special. Take care.

Precious Pea said...

So sad to read about the news..may he rest in peace.

Please don't be too upset and take care.

Uncle Tee used to attend my church (JIC) years back. :-( Alot of us are very sadden by this too. But we all know he is in a better place now with the Lord. May God gives comfort and peace to his wife and children, during difficult times like this.

Yesterday I discovered this song which immediately reminded me of this incident.

They let him go.
They had no sudden healing.
To think that providence would
Take a man from his family while they pray
Is appalling.

Who told us we’d be rescued?
What has changed and why should we be saved from nightmares?
We’re asking why this happens
To us who have died to live?
It’s unfair.

This is what it means to be held.
How it feels when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive.
This is what it is to be loved.
And to know that the promise was
When everything fell we’d be held.

This hand is bitterness.
We want to taste it, let the hatred NUMB our sorrow.
The wise hands opens slowly to lilies of the valley and tomorrow.

feel so sad to read this in da paper and sorry to know that he's your friend :( don't be too sad okay... may he rest in peace and may angels be with him.... well, sad to say that we are actually living in a !@@#%$^%& country!

GFAD said...

Small world, babe. I didn't know you knew Tee. I know Lavendar. I have not been able to contact her, but will continue to try a bit later, when things are more settled. My heart aches for her and the children.

Babe_KL said...

fbb, did u know it had gotten a few friends to think of getting their will done. one of them baru 30 years old haha

tummythoz & precious pea, thanks for the comfort. i'm much better now.

small world eh tankiasu? Tee is indeed in a better world. it's a relieve to me now to learnt he actually did went in peace.

thanks meiyen, it's so sad but its true but not to worry, hopefully there will be some kind soul out there to come forward and gave account of wat they've witnessed.

kat!!! gosh i can't believed it that you knew them too. Lavendar is ok, she don't feel sad but she missed Tee a lot. In actual fact I think she was stronger than I am... I burst out when she told me that Tee had mentioned to her before that I'm one of his nicest friend he had ever met via the internet :(

Allan Yap & Nigel A. Skelchy said...

Hi babe_kl; condolences to his family. Unfortunately, there's nothing that can be said that would be of comfort to his family on his sudden demise. But our prayers go with him.


UnkaLeong said...

My condolences to Uncle Tee and his family :( You take care now you hear..

fatboybakes said...

omigoodness, babe...turns out your friend actually goes to my church, (the subang branch of my church) and was supposed to be introduced for membership at yesterday's church meeting. how tragic.

yes, it makes sense to make a will. and married ppl, make sure you change your EPF and insurance beneficiaries.

Babe_KL said...

thanks so much nigel and unka leong

how ironic huh fbb?? if you have gotten to know the Tees, you'll definitely feel it more. they are one of the nicest couple i've known, never fell short of extending their assistance when asked.

TriStupe said...

Condolences to his family. I might not know him, but reading about the news almost a week ago does makes me angry as to why the crane, which were involved in an earlier accident, wasn't removed pronto.


Min Chan said...

I know Lavendar and have met Tee briefly a couple of times. I'm still in shock over the news. We do not know what actually happened. What makes me angry is how so many parents take for their children's safety for granted. Today, I saw a car with the backseat full of plants. A toddler of about 2 or 3 was STANDING in the front passenger seat! Children sitting with the maid or parent in the front passenger seat isn't uncommon. Adult restrained but not the child. The "It won't happen to me" attitude must change!

Babe_KL said...

stupe, which is why i'm appealing for the witnesses to step up. in 21/3 Berita Harian, the reporter managed to get details from one witness whom stopped to help. he mentioned many saw the accident but din stop. how pathetic!

min, there are many such morons on our roads! sighh i'm supposed to organise a dinner at yr steamboat place but with this... i'm still dragging my feet :(

TriStupe said...

a life is lost. someone lost her husband and some kid lost their father.

i feel sad too. the highway authority should do more to ensure we that pay for the toll are at least safe.

compared to what we see on TV (like maximum xposure or the amazing video) where passerby will battle with their own life to get someone in accident to safety...i guess we malaysians are just too stuck with our own sorry self.

tidak apa...semua ok.

same goes for those parents which drives with the kids on their lap...they think it's cute.. and they don't think things will happen to them.

also same like those young drivers...which whizz in and out of traffic like they are going for their own funeral...

To Tee's family. my condolencs again. i hope someone will step forward and help with the investigation.

Rasa Malaysia said...

I am sorry to hear that...take care babe.

Babe_KL said...

what to do stupe, those moronic parents are very typical Malaysian - mudah lupa, tidak apa and semuanya ok!

thanks bee yinn, i feel so much better now after my grieving

Albert said...

what a sad news. I just got to know this yesterday. I only met him once during toyota TT in Jun 2003. If I am not mistaken, his wife was there as well. The rest is through his autoworld & MTM.

Be strong, Mrs Tee & children. I know how it feel to lose your daddy as I too have lost my mummy when i was 4 years old.


Babe_KL said...

it's very shocking to everyone albert. am sure with your brief meeting with Tee, you'll know what a nice person he is.

CFC said...

So sad. Despite the circustances, I still could not attend his funeral. When you SMSed me, I was in Kuantan.

BAse don the pictures, I still do not know where the incident took place in Bkt Jelutong. Self investigation also half-past six..........

zickleer said...

My deepest sympathies to the late STTEE's family at the loss of a great husband and father.I wish I had known UNKER TEE when he was well. I can only conclude he must have been a kind, generous, and honourable man to have a family who cared about him as much as you did.
Take comfort in knowing that you did as much as you could do to make his last months more comfortable.
I know you will miss him greatly. During this difficult time, I know you will draw upon your own strength and the strength of loved ones that hold you in their thoughts.
