Inconsolable: Sim’s relatives trying to console her.
PETALING JAYA: Murdered teenager Ng Yuk Tim was a caring person who was always advising her mother and family members to be careful and to drive safely.
“I always felt that her caring reminders were annoying at the time,” said the girl’s mother in a heartfelt posting on her Facebook page yesterday.
Sim Yee Ling, 35, said her daughter was a very simple girl who was not interested in dressing up or wearing makeup.
“I always felt that her skirt was too long and her hair too short. She always went out wearing double shirts and long pants. I always felt she doesn’t like to wear make-up.
“When I go out, she is at home and reminds me to ‘be careful, be careful!’. When I send her to school, when she gets out of the car, she always says ‘drive carefully!’
“When her grandma goes out, she says ‘Grandma, be careful!’.”
The heartbroken mother ended her post saying “My little sweetheart, I didn’t get a chance to say goodbye”.
Sim said she was crushed when she read some of the comments posted about her daughter online.
“The things that people have been saying online about my daughter are horrible. Some are saying she deserved it because she went to see a guy on her own.
“My daughter had always been a good girl,” said Sim.
She said her daughter usually kept to her group of close friends from school, adding she did not know that her daughter was going to meet the suspect alone.
“I’ve heard about him from my daughter, but yesterday (Tuesday) was my first time seeing him in person,” she said.
The suspect volunteered to help Yee Ling find her missing daughter on Tuesday and even distributed flyers around the city with her.
Meanwhile, the victim’s grandfather, William Sim, 70, said the family hoped Yuk Tim’s killer would be charged and sent to the gallows.
“We want this to end quickly so justice will be served for my granddaughter,” he said at the UMMC mortuary yesterday.
The family performed a prayer ceremony for the girl outside the UMMC mortuary yesterday evening.
They later claimed her body before sending it to the Kwang Tong Funeral Parlour in Kuala Lumpur. She is expected to be cremated tomorrow.
