It is a great thing that nowadays there are a lot of places that make life easier for people with disabilities. More and more OKU parking spots are popping up to make special needs people’s lives more convenient. However, there will always be inconsiderate people who will park their cars on the OKU spots and act as if they own it.
Yesterday (4th March 2020) in Klang, someone parked their car at the OKU spot in front of a food court named Family Kopitiam. From the pictures, the car is a bluish-grey Vellfire and there is no indication that the car is driven by a special needs person.
The Selangor authorities then towed the car, and bystanders who saw the incident then uploaded the pictures onto social media.
The series of pictures has gotten quite a few reactions from netizens and most, if not all of them are delighted that this has happened.
Well, all we can say is that the authorities did the right thing! What do you think about this? Tell us in the comments!
There are many ways to break up with your other half and then there’s this really dramatic method that has taken Chinese social media by storm. On November 23rd, residents of Taizhou, Zhejiang were stunned when they saw a white Hyundai Creta on the streets with the body of the car spray-painted with some rather amazing words in red paint.
Photos of the car were posted on Weibo and people were puzzled why the car received such treatment. One side of the car was written, “The man I love the most,” while the back had the words, “I have left.” Another side of the car’s body was written, “Seven years of disappointment, I have left.”
People who saw the car were stunned by this and jumped to conclusions, with many of them saying that it was probably done by his ex-girlfriend. They said that the owner might have hurt the girl deeply for her to do something like that and criticised him for wasting seven years of her youth.
Surprisingly, the car’s owner was revealed and he admitted that it was indeed his girlfriend of seven years who had done it. He said that he had parked his car outside his house before that and was shocked to see the words sprayed there the next day.
He posted a video on Douyin defending himself and saying that he did not understand why they were scolding him. The man said, “You’re all scolding me for wasting seven years of her time. I want to ask, isn’t men’s time just as precious?”
He also revealed that they had originally planned to get married after seven years but unfortunately, he still could not afford to pay the bride price, a sum of money or other forms of wealth paid by a groom or his family to the family of the woman he will be married to.
The man ended his video saying, “The only person I can blame is myself, for not being capable enough to marry her. Add oil, fellow men!”

“On preliminary investigation, it was found that the accident happened due to the car OVERSPEEDING at 104 km/h instead of the prescribed 40 km/h on the flyover,” said the statement put out by the Deputy Commissioner of Police, Cyberabad stated.
Meet Lan and his wife Nur Amyza Ismail, who are co-owners of Berkat Ilahi, a business that sells fresh poultry in Tanah Merah, Kelantan
The couple started from humble beginnings when they launched their business in 2008.
They initially had only one outlet, and drove a white Perodua Kancil.
Fast forward to 2019, Berkat Ilahi has expanded to four outlets all over Tanah Merah.And Amyza has recently bought a brand new Audi A3 as a gift for her husband.
“It never crossed my mind that we would ever own our dream car,” she shared in a Facebook post on 28 October, documenting the happy occasion.
“God will always bless those who are hardworking. I am giving my beloved husband the sports car of his dreams for all the hard work that he has put into this business.”
They still have their Perodua Kancil, but have repainted it with a fresh coat of red.
Amyza also reflected, “Who would have thought that we are able to afford a sports car now in 2019, when we only started with a Kancil in 2008?”
Amyza wrote that back then, both of them were made fun of for fantasising about their success because they were not highly-educated
“We want to show people that we are also capable of success in our own way,” she said.
Despite being insulted and disregarded by others, they did not back away from the criticism.
In fact, they are now grateful for it.
“We have never held a grudge against our haters. Because if we did, this negativity would have only dampened our spirits. Instead, we turned the negative comments into a burning motivation to continue striving.”
Not forgetting their roots, as a form of gratitude to their loyal customers, they would also occasionally sell their goods at a discounted price
Yesterday, 4 November, for example, the business sold fresh chicken for only RM3.99 per kilogramme.
In the post, Amyza wrote, “We wish to share our blessings with our customers who always support our business.”
In a separate post, her husband Lan said it was important to stay humble in every situation.
“When we are at the bottom, we need to do away with our negative traits and be confident that we can succeed.
“When we are at the top, we must remember to never make fun of those beneath us because everyone is capable of achieving success, for God can change everything.”
A video circulating on WhatsApp shows a man unlocking a car with a device allegedly bought from an online shopping platform for RM500.
The video shows a man holding a rectangular device with about six buttons on top. He presses them one by one while standing near a Perodua Kenari.
It seems to be that he was testing which button would work in unlocking the car, and when he reaches the third button, he said that he had locked the car. He proceeds to press the fourth button, which apparently unlocks the car.
The man recording the video told him to open the car door to see if it really worked, so he pulled on the car handle and true enough, he could open it without any struggle. He even succeeded in locking the car with the device.
Watch the video here:
We don’t have any proof of how authentic this device is, but from the video itself, it looks like this could be a real device that thieves would use to carry out their crimes.
They could easily unlock your car door and drive your car away, or they could unlock the door, take your things and lock it back as if nothing happened.
It’s also not known if this only works for a Perodua Kenari of if it could work for other car models. Hopefully, the people selling it online will be caught soon.
Jing, 54, got out of the car to run some errands, leaving the two children, aged two and four, locked in the car.
Suddenly, the car burst into flames.
Seeing what had happened, Jing and several passers-by
immediately tried to break the car windows with tools, but failed to
rescue the children as the blaze intensified, according to newspaper Oriental Daily.
Jing was inconsolable and sobbing, saying that the two children had died a horrible death.
The owner has since expressed her regrets and apologised over the incident
“Our family feels extremely sad and guilty to see our beloved dog die
in such a brutal way,” said the owner in a Facebook post as quoted by
“I cannot stand looking at the photosbecause they’re too graphic. I know how much it must have suffered, but it truly was an accident,” the owner said, adding that nobody would understand how she felt about the incident.
Some netizens accused the owner of trying to defend herself to get a lesser punishment with one even calling her a liar.
“The dog still had to scream before it died! I don’t believe you when you say you had no idea what was happening. I hope what goes around comes around!” a Facebook comment said.
One netizen even called the owner heartless while another user pointed out that if she really loved the dog, she would not have left its body on the road.
However, some felt sorry for the owner, believing that she was genuine about her apology with one user even asking the rest to stop criticising the owner as losing her dog was already punishment enough.
It was at 7am on 6th July when Wu, a computer technician from Johor Bahru filled his four-wheel drive with diesel at a petrol station. Shortly after, the 33-year-old had driven not more than 200 meters after leaving the petrol station when suddenly his car broke down and could not move.
He then called a tow truck service to take his car to the mechanic, where they examined his car and discovered that his petrol tank was filled with water!
“I immediately went to the police station to lodge a report and returned to the gas station to complain to the staff, but the person in charge claimed that they had sealed the diesel pump and put a label on it stating that the nozzle could not be used,” Wu told Sin Chew Daily.
Wu added that the staff insisted he had removed the seal from the nozzle himself, filled his car with diesel and complained so that he could claim compensation from the petrol station. He later contacted the petrol station manager, who only suggested that he report the case to the police and claimed that the petrol station had a way to prove that Wu had taken off the seal from the nozzle.
“When I returned to the petrol station after my car broke down, I saw the staff use a black strap to tie the nozzle of the diesel oil pump. When I was filling my car with diesel earlier, I did not find any seals.”
What makes Wu feel even more helpless is that although the petrol station is equipped with surveillance cameras, the spot where the incident happened wasn’t in range, thus making it impossible to find out what actually happened.
Meanwhile, Wu said that his four-wheel-drive engine and other internal parts were seriously damaged and is still undergoing maintenance repairs which are expected to exceed RM10,000. Additionally, Wu now faces a major inconvenience as he doesn’t have transport to go to work.
He added that he made a complaint to the Federation of Malaysian Consumers Association and hopes that the petrol station will compensate him for his losses. He also hopes that by sharing his experience, others will be alerted to this issue and be extra careful when going to the petrol station.
