BUKIT MERTAJAM: The last time V. Uma, 15, saw her biological mother Wong Ah Moh, 43, it was sometime last November during the school holidays.
Since then, there had been no word about her. Then, three people showed up at her house in Bagan Serai, Perak with the grim news about her mother's recent death.
The three had tracked her down after a two-month search to hand over her mother's bequeathal to her.
Wong, a factory worker, had died at a hospital here on Jan 12 and her three colleagues, all in their 50s, had wanted to trace her next-of-kin to hand over her cash and belongings.
Although they had few clues, Ng Poh Imm, 53, Woo Sien Fong, 54 and Teh Saw See, 57, did not give up their search for Uma.
They also sought the help of the MCA division here.
"We did not give up even when we were told by the factory management to just donate the cash and belongings to a temple or charity home.
A few days after meeting MCA secretary Lau Chiek Tuan, he gave us an address in Bagan Serai, Perak where we finally found Uma and her guardian Mary Dorothy.
"Wong would have been happy with what we did and she would bless her daughter from above," said Ng at the MCA division headquarters at Taman Usahaniaga near here.
Wong had saved about RM5,000 in cash and coins in her room. She also left behind a handphone and a gold chain.
Uma said she cried out loud when she heard her mother had died.
"I am truly saddened. I would have been happy if she could have lived with me. I am going to miss her for the rest of my life," said Uma, who is sitting for the PMR examinations this year.
