Earlier this week, many of us learnt of Coco Siew Zhi Shing’s tragedy when she lost her life to a liposuction procedure by an unlicensed beauty parlour.
Since then, the two owners of the salon (a 23-year-old practitioner and her 49-year-old mother) have been arrested. The deceased family has been busy with funeral arrangements but are collecting evidence to take legal action.
Coco’s funeral was held at Xiao En Memorial in Cheras yesterday. Her brother, Mingan, revealed that 3 relatives of the suspects (a male and 2 women) showed up at the event to formally apologise to him and his family. Seeing as how the mother-daughter duo are still being detained, the relatives felt that they ought to pay their proper respects to Coco.
Coco’s elder brother also shared that the young model and her fiancé, Ewald du Plessis, had been saving up to have 2 separate weddings – 1 in Malaysia, and another in South Africa. That’s why she opted for a discounted liposuction. It was her first plastic surgery, and unfortunately, her last as well.
Ewald flew to South Africa for work commitments approximately 6 months ago. Sadly, he isn’t able to fly in to attend his beau’s funeral and can only make do with live streaming during the memorial.
Rest in peace, Coco :(
