What a sweet gesture.
An illustrator took to Instagram to “wed” the late actor Aloysius Pang with his girlfriend Jayley Woo in two drawings that have received tens of thousands of likes from fellow Singaporeans.
The illustrator posted the drawings to her Instagram account @autumn.ying on Friday. Two beautiful drawings showcased Pang proposing to Woo while she is wearing a bridal gown, and Pang and Woo in a blissful marriage.
Woo’s relationship with Pang was not made public until after Pang passed away on Wednesday due to injuries succumbed from an accident while he was serving military service in a New Zealand exercise.

✨#yingfashioncanvas ✖️#AloysiusPang ✖️#JayleyWoo In that fleeting time together with you, I found love of a lifetime. • Here’s the surreal moment specially done for Aloy and Jayley, in hope of minimising the regrets and becoming consolation to the broken hearts out there. It didn’t happen this time. Maybe in next life. Somewhere, somehow… You will meet again 😳 • #lovelycouples #jaysiusonthephonewithaloyley #fashionillustration #lovelife #yingfashioncanvas
In the post, Ying said she did the drawing “in hope of minimizing the regrets and becoming a consolation to the broken hearts out there”.
“It didn’t happen this time,” she said. “Maybe in next life. Somewhere, somehow… You will meet again.”

✨#yingfashioncanvas ✖️#AloysiusPang ✖️#JayleyWoo And in my darkest hours, where there is no silver lining in sight, you are the one who taught me to smile and shine in hope. • It is with the heaviest heart to accept the fact of this young actor @aloypang who was died of severely injures during his reservist in New Zealand. Can’t believe that he is about the same age with me and he has gone forever as a fallen soldier… It triggered me so much as every Singaporean son around us have to go through the cycle to defend the nation. And the loss of your loved one while serving the nation is truly devastating. May there’s no more wars in the world and we don’t have to suffer tragedies like this anymore 🙏 • Meanwhile, here’s my imagination for you @jiaqiwoo, where you’re in your fav blue and he’s in his fav black. May you stay strong still even though it’s not easy to grapple death in the face. I’m sure he is watching over you right now in the realms of paradise and forever he would be… 💙🖤 • #lovelycouples #jaysiusonthephonewithaloyley #fashionillustration #lovelife #yingfashioncanvas
Ying also wrote a personal message to Woo, encouraging her to stay strong even though it is not easy to face with the death of a loved one.
“I’m sure he is watching over you right now in the realms of paradise and forever he would be,” she added.
Her posts have received love from Singaporeans, including actor Romeo Tan who commented with a simple “Very beautiful, thank you”.
However, some commenters have warned the illustrator of possibly triggering Woo by reminding her of the relationship and possibly causing her to be unable to move forward after watching the visual.
Pang served as an armament technician as part of compulsory military reservist training that conscripts in the Singapore army must attend yearly, after graduating from a two-year National Service military stint.
Members of the public can pay their last respects to Pang from Saturday 12 pm to Sunday 12 pm at 82A Macpherson Lane. A military funeral will be accorded for Pang and he will be cremated at the Mandai Crematorium on Sunday, said the Ministry of Defence.
