Emil Goh's sudden journey to the Galaxy presented me with a breakthrough to write poems remembering him. Up to now, I have written 4 poems, and have intention to write more to the memory of Emil. Eventually, all of these poems will be included in a book of poetry.

Just got a sad news from Wendy Gan about Malaysian Chinese artist Emil Goh: "Emil passed away suddenly on the morning of 7 September 2009 in Seoul. He had a seizure of some kind in the morning. The ambulance was called but his heart had stopped beating by the time the ambulance reached the hospital. His girlfriend was by his side. This has been a huge shock. He was still young and with no health problems that we knew of. We do not yet know what exactly happened.
Emil Goh (1966-2009)
Emil Goh (b.1966, Malaysia) passed away on Monday 7 September in Seoul. It’s taken us a bit of time to come to terms with the shock of it, something that seems so impossible. Emil as a person was so ever-present, so tapped into life and people and stuff. Even if he only appeared in my life intermittently, on trips home to see his family, I could always be sure that he was working away at something fun, making things happen. It’s hard to imagine him as being truly absent. I think everyone who knew Emil loved him in some way, and Emil knew an awful lot of people.
A Tribute to Superlocal
On my other blog I just wrote a small tribute to a person that died who I didn't know but his death affected me a lot. He went by the handle "superlocal." He was a photographer that took great pop-culture photographs. I loved going to his blog to look at his photos. It really brightened my day due to his aspect of the world and his subtle sense of humour. I was able to get in touch with him briefly through twitter before his account got suspended (he was listed as a spammer though I never saw any spam come from his account). I found him to be very personable and friendly person.

Asialink, November 2009
Emil Goh died suddenly on 7 September, in Seoul, South Korea, aged forty-three, of a heart attack.
We can hardly believe he was forty-three, as he was always seemingly, endlessly youthful: enthusiastic, engaged, dynamic, funny; always knowing the latest trend, where to go, what to do, who to meet, and, as the tributes to him all say, where to eat.
A long Goodbye Broke through My Brain
By Moominn S.P. Park
A bullet broke through a glass window;
A long goodbye broke through my brain.
My brain shattered into a million pieces,
And dispersed in space.
A Song for Emil Goh
The Man Who Was Everyday
Written by Moominn S. P. Park
Evil smog occupied the sky of the Metropolis;
Gold fingers established a brave new Utopia.
Art admired digital decay;
Design became a slave to Utopian order.

Goh, who has died from a heart attack, initially dedicated himself to creating sensitive photographs reflecting the Asian-Australian experience. His early images often reworked family photographic negatives.
