A little lane from St. Joseph kidergarten leads to this little kiosk in Hokkien Lane. I remember the kiosk best for the time when my children were younger. Here many young kids and their mums would buy their ice balls all those many years ago. Today many of us have grey hair and eating habits have changed and yet children still come to the friendly old couple who now sell ABC and some kuih teow...Occasionally many hotel employees stop by for a small plate of fried noodles or some maggi mee......this innocent area will forever be changed by a strange murder this morning around 7:30 a.m.
A young rural girl who had been working in a nearby supermarket was stabbed to death. She was not yet 24...born in the year of the Rabbit.
she had rented a small room in this house.....
One stab in her stomach took away her young life.......I am sure details will be found in tomorrow's papers in Miri.
Actually another person had also been stabbed about two hours later in the same place.
