GEORGE TOWN, Dec 5 — Three clowns led the final send off for shooting victim, Choi Hon Ming, in a funeral procession complete with juggling and tricks today.
The clowns, all friends of Choi who was an entertainer and clown known as En Dao The Clown (En Dao is Hokkien for handsome), juggled and did small tricks as the sombre procession head towards the crematorium in Batu Gantung here.
Choi, 32, was killed by a stray bullet last Thursday during a shooting incident at the Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu Expressway where two others were killed and five were injured.
At the start of the procession, colourful balloons were released into the air.
Kuala Lumpur Clown Alley (KLCA) president D. Ravindran also delivered a speech, detailing his memories of Choi.
“He was a good entertainer and very skilled in balloon sculptures. I can’t believe he’s gone,” he said.
He later told reporters that the industry lost a great clown and entertainer with the passing of Choi.
On Thursday, a bodyguard allegedly went on a rampage and fired shots at his employer, Datuk Ong Teik Kwang and another bodyguard at the scene.
Ong was killed in the incident and another passer-by killed was Senthil Murugiah, 38.
The five others injured are Lee Hong Boon, 56, Nurul Huda Aziz, 38, Arivarni Krishnan, 33, Lim Boon Leng, 32, and RTM cameraman Mohamad Amirul Amin Mohamed Amer, 28
