Cruel thugs broke a puppy’s leg and sliced open the corners of its mouth in a vicious attack.

Golden retriever “Bobby” was left for dead after the thugs left her mouth looking like that of villain The Joker in Batman: The Dark Knight.

The six-month-old pup was unable to eat or drink and had several burned and infected wounds on her legs and paws.

But miracle vets in Seoul, South Korea, saved her after gruelling laser surgery.

We Love Dogs, the shelter caring for the cuddly retriever, the puppy was deliberately burned with a small flamethrower gun.

The animal was found on wasteland with her mouth tied with rope.

A spokesman for the shelter said: “We were eager to treat Bobby. There were many traces of abuse all over her body.

“Even though she was strong enough to heal from the many injuries and illness, she will need a lot of support to be strong again.

“The wound on her mouth was likely caused by a knife but it could also have been a flamethrower.

“We don’t know why they would do that.

“We are trying to find the person who did this to her.

“We have asked anybody with information to contact us anonymously.

“The puppy is very lucky to be alive and we will make sure she is taken care of.”

FLORIDA : A 1-year-old in Florida was saved from inside a locked vehicle with the help of an inmate with car theft skills, on Valentine’s Day.

The child’s father had left the car keys in the front seat while the child was strapped in a car seat, WFTS-TV reported yesterday, Feb 17.

He only realized that he accidentally locked his daughter in after closing the backdoor.

Nearby, inmates were repairing median strips on the road while being supervised by police deputies. Both deputies and inmates rushed to help the father and daughter.

One of the inmates managed to jimmy the lock using a wire clothes hanger in minutes. Save for some tears, the child was fine.

The successful rescue was documented by one Shadow Lantry in a video posted on Facebook.

Sheriff Chris Nocco described the inmates as “low-risk offenders” who were being rehabilitated to return to society, as per report.

He said, ”They know they made bad mistakes, bad choices but they want to do the right thing in life.”

Petrol prices up 10 sen, diesel remains unchanged

February 22, 2019 | News | No Comments

PETALING JAYA: Petrol prices are up by 10 sen per litre, while the price of diesel is the same for the week starting Saturday (Feb 23).

In a statement on Friday (Feb 22), the Ministry of Finance (MOF) said the prices of both RON95 and RON97 petrol would increase by 10 sen, while diesel prices were maintained.

With the increase in petrol prices, RON95 will now retail at RM2.08 per litre, RON97 (RM2.38) and diesel (RM2.18).

The Ministry of Finance said the new prices would take effect from 12.01am on Saturday (Feb 23) until March 1.

MOF said that the price increase for RON95 was caused by an average increase in the refined product in the global market, which went up from US$63.11 (RM257) per barrel last week to US$66.91 (RM272) per barrel this week.

MOF said that for diesel, the average cost of the refined product went up from US$74.38 (RM303) per barrel to US$79.11 (RM322) per barrel, and that diesel should cost RM2.33 per litre.

They added that to protect consumers from increases in fuel prices, RON95 petrol would be capped at RM2.20 per litre and diesel at RM2.18 per litre, through the implementation of subsidies.

The weekly fuel pricing mechanism was reintroduced on Jan 5 under the new Automatic Pricing Mechanism (APM).

Under the APM, weekly fuel prices are announced every Friday and will remain in force for one week.

People now can use emoji number plates

February 21, 2019 | News | No Comments

But it’s not in Malaysia, it’s in Queensland, Autralia.

Emoji plates are coming to Queensland

Emojis will soon be on our number plates, an idea that’s creating mixed emotions. The new design is being released next month in Queensland.Poll:

Posted by 7 News Brisbane on Isnin, 18 Februari 2019

It’s official, the millennials are taking over.
If there’s one thing that has come to define the smartphone-wielding, social media-loving youth of today, it’s the emoji.
And soon you’re going to start seeing the little characters in an unlikely new place: vehicle number plates.
The unusual move is set to be rolled out by Personalised Plates Queensland (PPQ) from next month, allowing drivers to adorn their number plates with a touch of emotion.

Royal Automobile Club of Queensland (RACQ) spokeswoman Rebecca Michael said it was no different from allowing drivers to express themselves with other available themes like their favourite footy team.
“For quite some time we’ve seen that you can support your favourite team or your favourite town with a symbol on your number plate,” Dr Michael told 7News Brisbane.
“And using an emoji is no different.”
But before your mind goes straight to the gutter, no, you won’t be able to completely replace the letters and numbers on your number plate with an eggplant or smiling poo emoji.
The smartphone symbols won’t be included in rego numbers and are simply decorative.

To begin with, there will be a choice of just five standard symbols available. They include the laugh out loud (crying laugh emoji), a winking face emoji, a cool sunglasses emoji, heart eyes and the standard smiling face emoji.
Drivers who are keen for the emoji licence plates will need to fork out somewhere between $160 and $500 for the privilege, according to the 7News report.

The idea has been met with a mixed reaction on social media. While some users think it’s a bit of fun, others aren’t so sure about the emoji takeover.
“I want this to happen so I can have a laugh at people’s number plates on the way to work,” wrote one Facebook user.
“This feels like an April fool’s joke,” someone added.
“Please no. Is this what Brisbane has come to?” asked another user.
Meanwhile most others just wanted to spell something rude with the symbols. Because, after all, what else are emojis for?


KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 20 (Bernama) — McDonald’s Malaysia has launched a Happy Meal Readers programme recently in a bid to inculcate the culture of reading among Malaysians from a young age.

Through the programme, customers have the option of choosing a book from the Treetop Twins Adventures series written by Cressida Cowell, author of the bestselling ‘How to Train Your Dragon’’ series instead of a toy, with every purchase of a Happy Meal.

“We hope that this programme will instil a lifelong love of reading among children by making it a fun activity for the whole family,” said McDonald’s Malaysia marketing director Eugene Lee in a statement.
