From The Star in Malaysia:
JOHOR BARU: Miracle girl Tee Hui Yi has never known Chin Yoon Kiong. But she knows deep in her heart that he was a good person.
The 15-year-old heart transplant girl owes her life to 20-year-old Chin whose heart she now carries.
“I will be forever grateful to Chin and I will always pray for him and his family.
“Chin gave me a second lease on life,” said a teary-eyed Hui Yi, who visited Chin’s family in Kangkar Pulai on the first day of the Lunar New Year.
Hui Yi was accompanied by her mother Dina Bato Sam Bua, 46, and 52-year-old father Tee Ah Soon.

Hui Yi, the younger of two siblings, had to rely on a mechanical heart before undergoing the operation on Oct 15 at the National Heart Institute (IJN).
She underwent her second transplant after her body rejected the first heart from a donor in Sitiawan, Perak.
Her second heart came from Chin, who was declared brain dead after a road accident in Johor Baru.
Meanwhile, Chin’s mother Moong Song Peng, said she was touched after meeting Hui Yi.
“I will keep in touch with this special girl and her family.
“Our sadness at not having our son during this Chinese New Year is a little less with Hui Yi’s visit,” she said between sobs.
