Commit Sucide @ Genting Highland

Rescue effort: A rescuer offering Lai a cigarette as he tries to talk him out of committing suicide. Lai finally relented at about 3pm.

I saw this news and I was thinking why ppl want to commit suicide? Commit suicide is a way of escape away from problem and it even create trouble to other ppl like your family. There’s nothing that cannot be solve and help is always out there.

If any problem or anything you can always talk to your family, friends etc and discuss the problem with them, I’m sure they will more than willingly to help. So do not commit suicide, it’s not wise to do that. I have seen some even commit suicide involving their children and wife / husband. This is socially wrong. Think for yourself and others.

PETALING JAYA: Deep in debt to loan sharks, a man jumped out of a Genting Highlands hotel restaurant window to his death. Well, not to his death. He crashed through the rooftop of the Genting Skyway station and landed on the safety net under the cable car system.

The man, identified as Lai, was seen kicking open the window of a restaurant at Highland Hotel before jumping out at 9am yesterday.

Stopped by the net, he sat on its edge for five hours, halting the cable car service and forcing all passengers to be transported to the lower station by bus and the Awana Skyway.

From 9.30am, firemen tried to coax him down and even offered him fried chicken, said a witness who declined to be identified.

“Later, he called his father and told him he was going to die today before switching off the phone,” the witness said.

About five hours later, firemen persuaded him to give up his death wish and police escorted him to the Kuala Kubu Baru Hospital at 3pm.

This blog is a platform to share what I love in life: food (eat), travel (play), photography (art) and life (thoughts and ideas). With passion for food, I share my foodie adventures and indulgences here. “There is no love sincerer than the love of food.”

Traveling makes us a better human being as we recognise the similarities and celebrate the differences of cultures between where we travel to and where we come from. “The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”

Photography do more than just capturing the best moments in our lives; they also help us tell our life stories. “Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
