Time flies by so fast, doesn’t it?
I can’t believe it’s been 2 years since Chester’s suicide on 20 July 2017. I’ll always remember that day. And 2 years on, the pain hasn’t really subsided. I woke up to read tweets from Susan (Chester’s mother):

I love Linkin Park, and I’ve performed a few cover songs in their honour. One More Light especially takes on a sad but significant note.
I’ve performed One More Light a few times, and every time there’s so much chills. So much sadness. So much love from the audience. Here’s the first time I ever performed it:

Mental health is something we take for granted and never prioritize, and it can literally cost lives. I hope this changes in our society.
I want you to remember, that you are never alone. Sometimes things are hard, but always reach out even when you don’t feel like it (especially when you don’t feel like it!)
If you are in Singapore, you can contact H.O.P.E. Alliance, which I am a part of. We are a community and we welcome anyone struggling with mental health issues.
