Malaysian Family Advertises Single Son as an Eligible Bachelor in His Father’s Obituary

Some parents go to extreme lengths to try and find their children life-long partners — one Malaysian family went as far as advertising their only single son as an eligible bachelor in his father’s obituary published in the local newspaper.

The late Chan Kok Choi had a full-page obituary dedicated to remembering and celebrating his life, which was published in a newspaper on May 12, 2019. Along with the information for a special memorial taking place, the obituary carefully listed out the names of Choi’s children, followed by the names of their spouses, and finally the names of their children. However, the name of Choi’s only son Chan Heng Joon stood completely alone aside from a small note which read: “still single, call [Heng Joon’s phone number].”
