Malaysian singer Queenzy Cheng’s parents are reportedly struggling to come to terms with their daughter’s sudden passing on Nov 28.
In an interview with Sin Chew Daily, Cheng’s father shared that his daughter was not only attentive to her own well-being but also took great care of her family members. In fact, she would always encourage her parents to take supplements.
“We never expected that a healthy person with no history of medical complications would pass away so suddenly. We really cannot accept it,” said Cheng’s father.
The 78-year-old revealed that he last spoke to Cheng a day before her passing, noting that she sounded well at the time.
He also said that his wife loved Cheng very much and has never cried until now.
Meanwhile, Cheng’s mother told China Press that her daughter had plans on marrying next year.
Reportedly, Cheng’s parents have approved of the singer’s boyfriend as he was filial and took great care of them and their daughter.
“The two of them planned on getting married next year. But due to their status as public figures, they decided to keep things low-key and not to publicly announce anything until after everything is finalised,” said Cheng’s mother.
Hoping to accompany their daughter in the next life, Cheng’s parents have decided on cremation instead of their initially planned burial after their passing.
In an interview with China Press, Cheng’s sister revealed that although her parents have already booked tombs for themselves at a cemetery where their relatives are buried, they decided to buy a columbarium for three after their daughter's passing.
“Since (their) daughter left first, (our) parents will not leave her on her own and will accompany her,” she said.
Cheng’s sister also urged the public to be wary when transferring funeral funds to the family as there are scammers going around using the singer's passing to make a quick buck.
Cheng, who hails from Perlis, is best known for her Chinese New Year songs. She was also an actress.
In 2001, she made her debut as a member of M-Girls alongside Angeline Khoo, Crystal Ong and Cass Chin. The quartet was active as a group until 2017 when they went on a hiatus to focus on solo projects.
Cheng was filming a segment for a YouTube channel when she suddenly collapsed and later passed away. She was 37.
According to reports, Cheng suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm. Her funeral will be held on Saturday (Dec 2), where she will be cremated and put to rest at Prestavest Memorial Park in Alor Setar, Kedah.
