SINGAPORE - Mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter Shahril Salim turned 22 on Tuesday.
To celebrate, his family and friends bought not one, but two chocolate cakes.
But instead of blowing out the candles at a boisterous party, he lay unconscious on a hospital bed at Singapore General Hospital.
Although his eyes open and his fingers curl into tight fists intermittently, Mr Shahril is still in a coma, explains his 29-year-old brother Jufri Salim.
"He may look like he's awake, but he doesn't respond clearly when you speak to him or ask him questions. Doctors are not sure about whether or not the movements are his way of expressing himself or due to involuntary reflexes.
"We didn't sing the birthday song because we weren't sure about how he would feel about us celebrating while he's in this state," Mr Jufri says quietly.
One cake was for the doctors and nurses who have been caring for him the past month. The other, which carried a photo of him in training gear, was for his family and friends, who celebrated in a solemn mood.
