KUALA LUMPUR: After a lapse of two years, the National Heart Institute (IJN) performed a lung transplant on a patient last night.

The family of Chiew Fong Neo (pic), 43, from Tangkak, agreed to donate a pair of kidneys, cornea, liver, lungs and heart valves after the hit-and-run accident victim was declared brain dead.

Their generosity enabled IJN to perform its first lung transplant since 2007 when the country’s first heart and lung transplant patient Siti Salmah Jasni was operated on. Siti Salmah died on Nov 28 the same year.

According to Chiew’s sister Fong Kiao, 54, the victim, who was working in Singapore, was hit by a car at Taman Tangkak Jaya on Sunday.

She said her sister had previously made known to her family her wish to donate her organs.
 
IJN heart and lung services clinical director Dr Mohamed Ezani Mohd Taib left the institute at 11am for Muar before flying back with the lungs.

The helicopter touched down at the KL hospital football field at 6.10pm.

The operation for the lungs began right after that and lasted for about eight hours.

Chew’s kidneys and liver were transported in an ambulance for transplant procedures in other hospitals.

This is the first time the Sultanah Fatimah Specialist Hospital in Muar has harvested organs from an accident victim.

Its director Dr Ahmad Pauzi Abu said it was a team effort by several parties, including IJN, the hospital, the Armed Forces and police. He thanked the victim and her family for their noble act.

Model photography – meet Yovi, Pohling, Crystal, and Agnes

By | Juesatta art, Photography | One Comment

Few weeks ago, I was lucky to be able to go for an outing with photonians together with four models, Yovi, Pohling, Crystal, and Agnes.

We went to a rubber estate in Krubong, where it took us about 30 minutes drive from the central town of Melaka. The road was tough but we managed to reach there by 3 MPVs. Every photographers had a chance to shoot with each of the models and we spent 3-4 hours over there shooting until the sunset. Everyone was exhausted.

I have to thank all the moderators from photonian.com to organise this great shooting event for the enthusiasts  and also the four sweet models who gave us full cooperation.

KENINGAU: The expression “shedding crocodile tears” took a whole new meaning for a family in Kampung Simpangan when their pet refused to eat and wept on the day its owner died. 

The two-tonne crocodile called Ah Kong is very much a part of the farming family and it became very attached to its owner Ho En Kui. 

It was Ho’s son Su Hung who found the baby crocodile along Sungai Pegalan after a flood in 1961 when he was a 14-year-old boy. 

Su Hung brought the 30cm-long crocodile home. Since then, Ho had been looking after it until his death in 2000.

The dustbin is so crammed with rubbish it’s in danger of overflowing.

There’s a mess of brightly coloured plastic at the top, some unidentifiable trash sticking out either side, and so much garbage in the bottom that it’s getting difficult to keep the lid on without squashing it all down.

But this battered old bin is the Strauss family’s pride and joy.
