Amber Chia (谢丽萍) recently took to Facebook to mourn Coco Siew Zhi Shing over her tragic death last weekend.
The 39-year-old Malaysian beauty wrote that she was in tears when she found out about Coco Siew’s unfortunate passing. In case you’re wondering what the relationship between the duo is, Coco was previously under Amber’s mentorship.
During an interview, the model shared that Coco was a very energetic individual when she signed up at Amber’s academy for a modelling course back in 2013. Although she was only 16 at the time, it was evident that Coco was goal oriented and willing to work hard. Following her win from the Asia New Star Model Contest, the young beauty continued modelling for another year or two before going abroad to further her studies.
Throughout this week, Amber has been urging the public “to stop visiting unlicensed centres/doctors”. “The risk of going to these illegal “aesthetic clinics” are far too great and you are beautiful in your own way,” the local celebrity wrote.
Coco’s memorial was held at Xiao En in Cheras. Her brother shared that a few relatives of the suspects (responsible for her death) showed up in person to apologise to the family.
