It was revealed that the ashes of the late actor Ng Man Tat will be brought back to Malaysia to where his current wife and family reside.

As reported on Mingpao, the news was shared by Ng’s second younger brother Ng Li Tat, who stated that the late actor himself had expressed such a wish while he was still in treatment at the hospital.

“He hoped to accompany his wife and children [in death],” he added.

It is noted that Ng’s Malaysian wife Hou Shan Yan and family are all based in the state of Johor.

When asked if Ng had any other wishes, his brother stated that his elder brother was always a filial man who only expressed concern over the family and their mother.

“He cared for his family, filial to our parents and kind to his friends. All of us saw him as a role model,” he added.

On the other hand, when asked about Stephen Chow coming to pay his respects, Ng’s brother stated that the two had always been good friends in life as Ng himself had repeatedly said in the past.
