Seven members of the family had traveled by train Saturday from Butterworth on northern Malaysia’s Penang island to the Thai beach resort city of Hua Hin and arrived in Bangkok on Monday.
Neoh Ee Ling, 33, who is five months pregnant, was not injured in the bombing and her father, Neoh Hock Guan, 53, reportedly suffered minor injuries. But five other family members, including Ee Ling’s four-year-old daughter, are confirmed dead.
The family had waited for Hock Guan’s youngest son, Neoh Jai Jun, 20, who studies in Taiwan, to return to Malaysia before heading to Thailand for a vacation, while his sister-in-law, Lim So See, 52, who lived in Singapore, joined the trip. Jai Jun was killed in the blast, and So See is presumed dead. The other members of the family who died were Hock Guan’s 49-year-old wife, Lim Saw Gaik; son-in-law Lee Tze Siang, 35; and four-year-old granddaughter Lee Jin Xuan.
Yutthanarong Singlor, 38, was among the 20 people killed in Monday’s bomb blast at the Erawan shrine. He worked as a messenger for a private firm in the Sukhumvit area. At 6:00 pm he got on the BTS to deliver a package to a company client at CentralWorld shopping mall. Kritsuda Narongplien was expecting to see him at home 30 min after getting a call from him at 6:45 pm. He never did!
He had two jobs, messenger job and a motorcycle taxi driver. He woke up at 5:00 am to make extra money with the taxi work and every morning he dropped Kritsuda off at her office first before going to his own.
She was the daughter of Hong Kong businessman Allan Chan Sui-wah who said his family was informed of the news by a Hong Kong immigration official at 3am on Tuesday. He and his wife took the first available flight to Thailand.
They were not enjoying the night life in Thailand, getting drunk and having sex. They were offering prayers for good luck and wishes to be granted. Their lives cut tragically short because of a Muslim Scumbag!
