Life is indeed interesting because even though you are successful, rich and you basically can have anything you want but you end up not being happy or depressed. It could be many factors that triggers Lim to end his life. He should have talk to someone about his problems or seek professional help. Relationship problems can be messy because you being a sportsman, you can’t commit and therefore, the lady should be understanding. But no one knows the true reasons. Such a young life has ended too fast. RIP Mr Lim.
