SINGAPORE - As family and friends streamed in to pay their last respects to paraglider Ng Kok Choong, 53, at his wake on Friday afternoon (Oct 26), they also got to see him doing what he loved most.

Just three steps away from where he lay in his coffin, a 42-inch screen television was showing on a loop an 80-second clip of an airborne Mr Ng, all smiles as he paraglided, sharing the sky views that he loved, using a camera mounted on a selfie stick.
