Don’t Worry

4 June 2007

To all of you in Malaysia,

Many of you know how close Val and I are, I love her like she’s my own sister. I appreciate your concern for me. I have been getting smses, phonecalls and all those comments on the previous post and messages on forums. Thank you very much. To say that I am “alright” will be a huge ugly lie, but I am managing, I am trying to cope. I will be truthful, I have bouts of “alright-ness” (like now as I am typing this) and bouts of crazy crying.

I have exams starting next Monday (11th June 2007) so I can’t go back and say my last goodbyes. However, I will be back later this month and I will meet up with all of you then. I promise I will take good care of myself. Don’t worry about me.

Please don’t call me for the time being, I think I need to quiet down and think and come to terms.

Yee Pei

    Hi YP. Just want to say that for us left behind, it will be difficult to come to terms with what has happened but Val would not have wanted us to grieve for her too long. She would have wanted us to get on with our lives. So we get on but we will always remember her. You should have seen the number of people at her wake last night. It was astounding. one thought came to my mind when I looked at the sea of people: how could someone with so many friends think so little of herself? I dont know why her death has affected me this much. My aunt passed away last week and I didnt feel remotely as sad. She really touched our lives didnt she? It was so difficult explaining to Sarah. She took it really hard. Anyway, you study hard for your exams. Val was so proud of having you as a friend and sister.

    I am shaken. And I am grieving. Not for Val because she has obviously chosen a path which frees her from the demons tormenting her soul. I grieve for her family and friends who are robbed of a daughter, sister, soulmate and a personality who brought sunshine to everyone who had the privilege of meeting her.
    A colleague of mine, who only met Val once, during her short stint with MacAsia, never forgotten her. Such was her engaging personality.
    Did we fail her? Maybe we should have told her, reminded her, how special she was. Maybe it would have banished the ugly thoughts which must’ve plagued her.
    Let there not be anymore Vals. Tell your loved ones how special they are. Now.
    I have a memento from Val. Nothing special. A sticker from MacAsia, back when I bought my first iPod from her. The iPod’s long gone. But my memories of her will remain. The sticker still adorns my car. A reminder of a fleeting friendship, now lost.
    Valerie Tay, RIP.
