The late Mr Ngae Koh Hieng's Memorial Run 2010

Observing one minute silence

This was the way Mr Ngae always tied his sarong

Me and Julie

Mr Ngae Koh Hieng passed away on 15 May 2010. He was a respected and popular participant in all major running and triathlete events. Mr Ngae’s signature wear had always been his broad smile and sarong, not to mention running bare footed. Most would still enjoy his sense of humour and envy his joy for life. I met Mr Ngae once only, sometime last year in one of PACM’s regular events.

A Memorial Run in memory of Mr Ngae was organized. A more than expected number of runners turned up and met at 0600 for the event. Mostly old friends and regular runners. Quite a few of us came to run in colourful sarongs. A short thank you message from Mr Ngae’s wife, Pin Pin was read by Ms Julie and this was followed by observing one minute silence before flag off. Limited souvenir blib numbers were issued to commemorate the occasion. There was no specific route and participants were free to run their routes and distances. A light breakfast was served after the run.

GOD bless you Mr Ngae, We will always cherish your friendship and remember you with fond memories. Rest in Peace and continue to guide us from Heaven.
