Malaysia Animal Association wrote, “Animal painting culture is becoming more and more common in this country. Just before this, a dog was painted green. Now a cat has been sprayed blue by its irresponsible owner. The consequences of this foolish behaviour can be harmful to the animals. Deaths can happen due to poisonous toxins when the cat licks itself or when the paint absorbs into it’s skin.”
“Anyone with any information of pets or strays being treated this way by neighbours of the community, please do report such animal cruelty to the authorities or to Animal Malaysia,” they added.
How would you feel if someone were to spray paint you and leave you to deal with the aftermath of the paint and chemicals? At least as humans, we have our hands to help us clean ourselves. These poor animals don’t have access to the facilities we do in order to clean themselves off, hence they end up ingesting and absorbing the chemicals into their bodies in an effort to be rid of the paint. Not to mention, it can cause skin irritation!
According to China Press, the police received reports that someone wanted to jump off the roof of a 33-storey building, and they rushed to the scene around 10pm on November 10th. They tried to persuade the man to come down and keep him calm as he was very emotional.
Apparently, Wang was under huge emotional stress as his wife had just racked up a huge amount of debt during the Singles Day promotions. She had bought over 300,000 yuan (RM177,559) in designer handbags, expensive perfumes, clothes and many more online.
He said that this was not the first time, as she had always been very fond of online shopping, but after she gave birth to their child last year, it got worse. During the Singles Day sales last year, she had spent over 200,000 yuan (RM118,374) and he had paid it off for her. She had promised that she would control her spending but had broken her promise and gone on a shopping spree again this year.
Wang says that he earns only a few thousand yuan a month, and he was the sole breadwinner of the family. His wife used to work in a property company but after she gave birth, she quit her job to take care of the baby. When he discovered that she had gone crazy on online shopping again, he was at his wits’ end and decided to kill himself as he did not know how to pay it off.
Luckily, the police managed to console Wang and persuaded him not to kill himself after half an hour. They brought him home and notified his family. His wife promised that she would not obsess over online shopping any more and vowed that she would not buy anything. Wang said that he would try to come up with the amount owed.
It doesn’t matter whether it’s Singles Day sales or not, you should control your finances well so you don’t end up in unnecessary debt!

The new Mushroom Cheese Melt Beef Burger sounds absolutely divine and I’m already salivating just thinking about it.
We often times see people sitting or lying on the streets and walk past them without a second glance, but what we don’t know is that many of these people have important stories to share.
This teacher saw a young boy sitting by a corner store and couldn’t help but wonder what he was doing there.
In a heartbreaking post, Mohd Fadli Salleh shared about how a 13-year-old boy lived on the streets without food or money, but managed to educate himself even though he has not gone to school since he was 9-years-old.
Mohd Fadli’s friend Nooraini had originally found the kid and invited him for a meal at McDonald’s, but after she barely slept that night thinking of the boy, she informed Fadli, who is a teacher, and he stepped in and met up with the boy.
He wrote, “This boy can always be seen sleeping in the alleys. After seeing how haggard he looked, Kak Nooraini invited him into McDonald’s for a meal and to ask him about his life. Kak Nooraini couldn’t sleep that night and told me about him, so without wasting any time, around 10:30am, I got some kids to look for him. 15 minutes later, they managed to find him and brought him to me.”
The teacher then realised that the boy was somewhat educated considering the way he had carried himself.
“The moment he sat down, I told him to order something to eat. At first, he said he was full. He rejected my offer with the utmost respect. But, I insisted and eventually, he gave in. He prayed before he ate. Such a good kid. He quickly cleared his plate, which shows how hungry he actually was,” he added.
He then decided to ask the boy about his life and found out that the boy’s mother had passed away when he was just 8-years-old. He had then moved to Kuala Lumpur with his stepfather at the age of 9, from Johor, and has not been to school since.
“I asked if he had an IC and a birth certificate, to which I was excited when I found out he had copies of both. He could go to school! I asked him if he could read. He nodded. I asked him to read the words on my shirt, he read it out smoothly. I asked him to tell the time on my analog clock, and he answered precisely. He knew basic mathematics,” he said.
Surprised by the boy, Fadli then found out that he has been teaching himself.
“Where did you learn all of this, I asked. He said he had been home-schooling himself. He even said home-schooling so accurately. His English!”
Fadli saw great potential in the boy and decided to investigate him a little further. It turns out that the boy was genuinely a good kid, he’s never stolen, doesn’t smoke and doesn’t hang out with hooligans. Which then begged the question, why was he living in the streets?
“I was going to contact his stepfather about schooling the boy, but he told me that his stepfather didn’t care whether he came home or not. He was a neglected child. I immediately told him that when he was hungry, he can come to this shop and order anything he wants to eat. I told him I didn’t mind if he came everyday, that I’d pay for him,” he noted.
The reason why Fadli took the boy underneath his wings is that he’s once been in the boy’s shoes before, when he didn’t have a single cent in his pockets, and he drank water from pipes while eating expired bread. Since then, he’s vowed to help anyone in need of a meal.
“As long as I’m here, as long as this shop stays open, and as long as I have the support of the people, they will never go hungry,” he added.
The 39-year-old suspect stabbed his pregnant wife four times – two times in the stomach – on Friday, 8 November.
The 37-week (or 8.5-month) pregnant victim then drove herself to the Putrajaya Hospital after the attack and safely delivered the baby through a C-section. Both the mother and child are reportedly in stable condition.
After learning of the incident, the suspect’s close cousin said the suspect is believed to be suffering from depression due to heavy workload
Only known as Din, New Straits Times reported him saying that the perpetrator – who works as an audio engineer – is believed to be suffering from depression over the past two to three months.
Din also attributed their grandmother’s passing four months ago to the suspect’s alleged depression.
“We have been close since we were children. After our grandmother’s death, he returned to Melaka and seemed to have a lot on his mind,”Din told Berita Harian.
“I asked him why he appeared burdened, he replied that he had a lot of work.
“I told him to come back and work in Melaka since his company has a branch there.
“He told me he had plans to do so after the wife had given birth.”
The 37-year-old cousin added that the suspect and the victim’s relationship seemed normal
“As far as I know, they had no problems with each other. Even the relationship between families from both sides was very close,” he said.
The suspect is currently being remanded until 15 November for investigation
He was arrested at his home in Precinct 9, Putrajaya, which was also where the attack took place.
Preliminary investigations showed that the suspect does not have any criminal records, reported Harian Metro.
The case is being investigated under Section 326 of the Penal Code, for voluntarily causing grievous hurt by dangerous weapons or means.
If convicted, the suspect could face imprisonment up to 20 years, a fine, or whipping.
Online shopping may be about convenience, but there’s nothing quite like touching and feeling an item at a physical store before buying it.
Taobao hopes to do just that by diversifying its market and including those who are not familiar with shopping online.
“When people shop on Taobao, they often have a lot of questions about the product and its quality… With the physical store, they can touch and feel the product and know exactly how to operate it,” Tmall World Malaysia marketing manager Jess Lew said, according to Malay Mail.
Spanning at 5,000 square feet, the retail space will sell a large collection of Taobao products, including homegrown brands
Baby items, electronics, furniture, and beauty tools, among other items from both Chinese and Malaysian companies, will be available for customers to test out and purchase.
Shoppers will be able to buy an item by scanning its QR code and making the purchase through the app. Staff will also be at the store to assist users.
The retail store will open on 29 November at MyTOWN Shopping Centre in Cheras, KL

Seorang guru yang datang ke kedai kenderaan di Batu Caves, Selangor untuk mengambil kereta yang dibeli hampa apabila premis berdasarkan alamat diberikan jurujual tidak wujud, malah kereta jenis Proton Arena dibelinya juga tiada di lokasi.
Ekoran kejadian, guru berusia 40 tahun itu kerugian RM2,000 apabila wang pendahuluan yang dibayar untuk kenderaan tersebut lesap selepas jurujualnya gagal dihubungi.
Ketua Jabatan Siasatan Jenayah Komersial Pahang, Superintendan Mohd Wazir Mohd Yusof berkata, mangsa tertarik dengan sebuah kereta jenis Proton Arena yang diiklankan melalui sebuah portal pengiklanan pada 3 November lalu.
Menurutnya, mangsa telah berurusan dengan jurujualnya bagi pembelian kereta berkenaan yang ditawarkan pada harga RM6,800.
“Pada hari yang sama, mangsa telah membuat pemindahan wang RM2,000 melalui aplikasi Maybank2U ke akaun seorang lelaki sebagai wang pendahuluan.
“Jurujual berkenaan (suspek) memberikan satu alamat di Batu Caves untuk mangsa datang menyelesaikan baki bayaran dan mengambil kereta tersebut,” katanya.
Mohd Wazir berkata, mangsa syak ditipu selepas mendapati kedai berkenaan tidak wujud dan jurujual pula gagal dihubungi.
Berikutan laporan dibuat, pihaknya kini sedang mengesan pemilik akaun bank bagi membantu siasatan dan kes disiasat mengikut Seksyen 420 Kanun Keseksaan.
