At 10am today, I was at work but my heart was not totally there. I was hoping hard that M Ravi could convince the High Court to grant Yong Vui Kong a stay of execution. Throughout the whole time, I was updated by friends who were there. Apparently the court was filled with the media and public today! I was really happy to hear that but when the news came that Justice Woo Bih Li accepted Ravi’s request and granted Yong a week of execution, I heaved a huge sigh of relief.

Yong will be allowed to have his case heard before the Court of Appeal next Tuesday at 10am.

Once again, I hope for the best.

He is honestly too young and should be given a chance to repent and live.

(Previously, I mentioned that Yong’s mother arrived in Singapore on Monday and would visit him on Tuesday. I got the days wrong, apologies for that!)
