Such a sad news I read from the internet this morning... National hockey player Chua Boon Huat, better known as Chua by his pals and teammates has passed away in a car accident.
While I feel sad at some passing of a lot of celebrities or sportsmen, this one in particular, saddened me the most. He is indeed, someone quite close to my heart.
I've met him a few times during my college days and sometime after returning from my studies in Australia, most of the times catching him at hockey matches. Despite having so many girl fans going crazy over him, he was one of the most humble athletes I have ever met. He always humbly sign autograph, take photos, talked to his fans...
Rest in Peace Chua, you will always be remembered as a national hero, my favourite hockey player of all time! :'(
