Love hurts. Yes, it does. But for 22-year-old Malaysian Alviss Kong, love kills.
Alviss Kong, born 22nd May 1988, committed suicide in the wee hours of yesterday morning by jumping off the 14th floor of Ketumbar Heights, Cheras, Kuala Lumpur after succumbing to emotional distress brought about by the breakup with his girlfriend.
Alviss and his girlfriend had been an item for about four months only prior to their breakup. This was Aviss’ second relationship. It was reported in a local newspaper that Alviss also committed suicide after the breakup with his first girlfriend but was saved in the nick of time. The depression from the breakup with his second girlfriend seemed to have caused him to spiral out of control again, resulting in his suicide. And this time, he really met with his death.
Before committing suicide, he posted a farewell note on his Facebook profile page together with a photo that he tagged as the last photo of him alive. At 11.15 pm on Wednesday night, he posted on his Facebook wall this message “Count Down For 45 Mins…What should I do in this 45 mins?”. His sister and friends responded with messages, not realising the countdown was the countdown to his suicide. At about 11.29 pm, he posted a message to his sister asking her to take care of their mum. That must have freaked out her sister who responded with the message “Hello hello u freaking me out here.. Wats wrong wit you!!!!” Slightly over half an hour later, Alviss committed suicide.
Alviss lived in an apartment on the fifth floor of the building. Prior to his suicide, he had a drink at a tea stall near the building.
After he jumped, his body hit a car parked near the building, damaging the car on impact. He lay bleeding until he was rushed to the hospital. He passed away at about 9.00.a.m. yesterday.
Alviss Kong used to work in Berjaya Times Square. He went clubbing a lot, and often wore a cute plaster on his face as a fashion statement.
This picture is a newspaper report on the suicide.
This is the message he posted on his Facebook account:

It is particularly sad now to read Alviss’ blog post about his unforgettable day with his girlfriend knowing that he had committed suicide.
scars you from the start.
It’s just a living pastime
ruling your heart line
won’t let you go.
drills you through your heart
tears you right apart.
It won’t let go
it won’t let go
The following poem sums up it all:
Tragic Love by Kelsey
I love you
But you don’t seem to care
I know we aren’t together anymore
But still I love you
I can’t live life like this anymore
I pull out a razor blade
And slide it down my arm
I see the deep dark red of my blood
What have I done?
I’ve done nothing
The blood running down my arm
Was caused by you
If it wasn’t for you
Blood wouldn’t be running down my arm
Tears wouldn’t be running down my cheeks
And my heart wouldn’t be broken
