A tribute to Ishun Chan

"life is short. do what makes u happy" - Ishun, Mar 2008




Ishun was loved by many people from all walks of life. This site was created to commemorate the extraordinary life that she lead and to cherish the friendships formed. She probably would've wanted us to just go on with our lives and be happy, so this site is as much for her as it is for all those who loved her.
