Taiwanese singer-host Alien Huang may have died from cardiovascular complications on Sept 16, but his good friends have not forgotten his birthday.
He would have turned 37 on Saturday (Nov 28).
His good friend and ex-girlfriend, singer Rainie Yang, posted on Instagram a composite photo of her with Huang, actress Ann Hsu, Ms Elin Yeh and another friend who goes by the online name Beachboi.
The five good friends are known as the Hwa Kang Gang of Five as they were graduates of the Taipei Hwa Kang Arts School.
Yang, 36, wrote in Chinese: "Happy birthday. I will not post wishes on your birthday in future. I will choose to say it in my heart, as you know I always remember this day.
"The five of us should have taken a photo together some time ago, but did not act on it even though we have talked about it for a long time. I never imagined that the photo would be presented this way.
"Although we talked and laughed the day the photo was taken, we knew how we felt in our hearts."
She thanked Huang's manager Dino for providing Huang's photo and the staff who took the group photo and then inserted the singer-host into it.
Huang's girlfriend - cheerleader Wu Han-chun - did not forget his birthday either as she posted on social media the cake she had made for him last year and thanked him for appearing in her life. – The Straits Times/Asia News Network
