Last Thursday (28th May), an elderly woman, Madam Lim Sai Lung, went missing after visiting her daughter in Taman Putra Indah, Serdang. Her family has since been trying to find her but to no avail

Yesterday (5 June), after seven days of searching, the 76-year-old woman was found dead in a drain beside an apartment in Serdang Raya, according to FTopNews.

Residents in the area reported that they had smelt a foul smell coming from the drain three days ago, but because the drain was sealed, they did not consider it to be a dead body.

Halfway through the search for Madam Lim, they located the source of the smell and peered through the drain hole with a flashlight and saw a hand.

After prying open the drain cover, the body of the victim was identified as Madam Lim as confirmed by the authorities. Her family was also at the scene.

The victim’s body was found less than 100 metres away from her home and her shoes were also found in the area.

Madam Lim’s granddaughter has also confirmed the unfortunate news in a Facebook post.

“My grandma has been found, thank you to you all who has shared and helped search for my grandma, I appreciate and thank you for your effort wholeheartedly, thank you ❤️❤️🙏🙏” she wrote.

While many posts have speculated that Madam Lim has dementia and other health issues, a search notice on Facebook, clarifies that “she is healthy and has no Alzheimer/dementia issue”.

Madam Lim was last spotted “wearing a maroon/dark brown blouse as shown in the picture. She is healthy and has no Alzheimer/dementia issue. She didn’t bring along her IC & mobile phone.”

Rest in peace, Madam Lim and our condolences to the family.

2 June: Rohim has since been found and returned to the Tanjung Rambutan facility.

As Senior Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob said in the daily media conference on the COVID-19 response, “The Rohingya man has been caught and sent back to the quarantine centre”.

On May 31, Rohim Mohd Zakaria was found missing from his room at the Ministry of Health’s Training Institute in Tanjung Rambutan at around 11am

According to a Bernama report, a “Ministry of Health staff was monitoring those quarantined at block E-2-83 of the facility” when they noticed Rohim, a 27-year-old Rohingya refugee, was missing. 

At the time, 57 other people were awaiting swab test reports at the quarantine centre, none of which have revealed positive results.

Initial search efforts by ministry staff and Malaysian Civil Defence Force (APM) personnel proved unsuccessful

In an interview with Bernama, Ipoh district police chief ACP A Asmadi Abdul Aziz described that they had “looked for the man around the quarantine block and his designated room, but could not find him”.

A search party was launched to look for Rohim. 

Rohim was first placed at the Tanjung Rambutan quarantine centre at 5pm on May 30 after being detained at a roadblock

From Sentul, Kuala Lumpur, Rohim and two others were stopped at a roadblock on the North-South Expressway near Behrang, as noted by Perak CID Chief Asst Comm Anuar Othman.

Rohim was then investigated for allegedly defying the Conditional Movement Control Order and for “immigration-related matters”, continued Anuar.

Remarking his shortness of breath and additional COVID-19 related symptoms, Rohim was given police bail and then sent to Slim River Hospital

When initial tests came back negative, the 27-year-old was moved to Tanjung Rambutan.

There, he was supposed to be quarantined for 14 days, only to be found missing the day after his arrival. 

Currently, the case is being investigated under Section 22(b) of the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Regulations as well as Section 6(1)(c) of the Immigration Act of 1959/63. 

The first law describes measures taken towards infected local areas, whilst the latter is associated with the control of entry into the country where one is required to be in “possession of a valid Pass lawfully issued to him to enter Malaysia”.

The patient’s exact reason for leaving the centre has not been confirmed

Authorities were similarly lacking details about Rohim aside from his name and passport number which he noted on a form provided by the centre.

As more COVID-19 related cases continue to emerge in immigration centres, Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah reminded the public on his Twitter account that “negative sentiments against detainees must not be amplified and must not be a catalyst for discrimination in saving lives”.

Migrants and refugees were previously assured by the Ministry of Health that they could get tested without fear of their status

Yet, the ministry’s jurisdiction only goes so far, as immigration enforcement falls under the responsibilities of the Ministry of Home Affairs. 

The United Nations previously expressed concern over the arrests and detainment of migrants and refugees in Malaysia, fearing that it may prevent these individuals from seeking testing or treatment.

Two customers found families of living cockroaches in cakes they bought from different outlets of one local mini-market franchise recently

The first customer, Sureshgita Vpp, took to Facebook to share the displeasure of his discovery in a cake he bought at a branch in Puchong last Tuesday, 3 March.

“Be careful when purchasing at these outlets. Today this bakery brand affected, tomorrow maybe some other brand,” he wrote in the post.

“The cockroaches are still alive. Actually we throw some already. But still alive. Terrible,” he said with disappointment in the video showing the moving insects

Coincidentally, as Sureshgita had warned, another customer had the same experience just five days after he made the post

The other customer, Abdul Rehman, sent Facebook group We Are Malaysians a video of the cockroaches he found in a cake bought at a branch of the same franchise in Kuala Lumpur on Sunday, 8 March.

“I’m making this video because I want to let you know after you buy things, make sure everything is okay,” he said in the video, showing the receipt as proof it was bought from the store.

He then opened the cake packaging to show the cockroaches that he found inside after bringing it home. He said they were still alive.

Abdul Rehman said he went back to the convenience store to ask the staff about the cockroaches

However, he was unimpressed when the staff did not claim responsibility over the error, saying that they cannot stop cockroaches from crawling into the products and added that the supplier brings them the items like that.Furthermore, when asked for a refund, they told him to buy another cake.

Meanwhile, Sureshgita has since wrote letters of complaint to both the mini market chain and the bakery that supplied them the cakes

He wrote that a manager from the bakery had personally seen him on 3 March, the day that he found the cockroach, and collected the cake as evidence for their investigation.

However, both parties have yet to get back to him.

SAYS has reached out to the bakery and the convenience store for a statement on the issue.

SERDANG – A 47-year-old man has been arrested over the murder of a woman in a parking lot in Puchong.

Serdang OCPD Asst Comm Ismadi Borhan said the suspect, who is the woman’s ex-husband, was arrested in Genting Highlands at about 2am yesterday (Feb 20).

“The woman was a Chinese national with a Permanent Resident status. Her family members – her daughter and younger sister – have identified the body at Serdang Hospital,” he said when contacted.

Post-mortem on the body, added ACP Ismadi, showed the cause of death to be multiple wounds from a sharp object.

“There were wounds on her neck and head, and on the front as well the back of her body. We believe the murder weapon to be a knife,” he said, adding that the suspect had been put on remand until Feb 26.

“We are ruling out theft as a motive as the victim’s belongings were not missing,” he said. ACP Ismadi also urged anyone with information to contact the Serdang district police headquarters at 03-8074 2222 or the nearest police station.

The body of the woman, in her 50s, was found in a pool of blood in a parking lot in Pusat Bandar Puchong Jaya at about 10.20pm on Wednesday.

Police arrested a man, identified as SF, 57, on Jan 23 in Cianjur, West Java, for allegedly kidnapping his teenage neighbour four years ago. The girl, who is now 15 years old and pregnant, was returned to her parents.

The girl was 11 when she was reported missing by her parents on Feb 26, 2016, and was in advanced pregnancy when she was found by the police.

Cianjur Integrated Care Centre for the Empowerment of Women and Children operations head Lidya Indayani Umar told The Jakarta Post that the victim was reintroduced to her parents but is currently being sheltered in the agency’s rehabilitation centre for trauma healing and childbirth preparation.

“Her parents are staying in the village, while she’s with us until the childbirth is done. We feared that there would be many people going to her house and she would become depressed,” she said on Jan 31.

Cianjur Police chief Adj. Sr. Coms. Juang Andi Priyanto said it took almost four years for the police to track down the suspect as he moved around a lot and made it difficult for the police to find him.

He accused the alleged kidnapper of also forcing the victim to work to generate income for their daily needs. He said they were eventually traced by the police when the suspect returned to their village after the victim requested to meet with her parents.

Lidya said the victim is currently being supervised by a psychologist in the shelter to support her mental being.

“Currently, she’s only 15 years old, which means she has a high-risk [pregnancy]. We’re preparing her so she could have a normal childbirth,” she said.

She added that the victim’s mental condition is improving and she has already engaged in conversation with the psychologist.

“Psychologically, we see that the trauma has been decreasing as she started to become more active in conversation. She also wants to return to school but she has the responsibility of taking care of her child,” she said.

“We keep observing her condition so there won’t be additional trauma.”

She said further analysis by the psychologist who is supervising the victim is needed to determine whether she is ready to be reintegrated into her family.

“We have to ensure her security and well-being. We don’t want her to get stigmatised by her surroundings when she returns to her family,” she said.

She said she also appreciated the police for charging the suspect under the 2002 Child Protection Law and Article 335 of the Criminal Code regarding kidnapping.

“[The police] charged the suspect using Article 81 clauses one and two [of the 2002 Child Protection Law] because there were sexual acts with a minor and the [Criminal Code’s] Article 335. The laws carry a minimum sentence of a five-year imprisonment to a maximum sentence of 15 years,” she said.

However, she said she hopes the attorney would also prosecute with additional charges because of the suspect’s close relationship with the family, which is regulated by Law No.17/2016 on the stipulation of the government regulation in lieu of law (Perppu) No.1/2016 regarding child Protection.

Lidya said upon conviction the judge could sentence the suspect to 20 years’ imprisonment based on the 2016 law.

Children Rights Advocacy Agency’s executive director, Andi Akbar, urged the government to protect the victim and provide her with psychological consultation, especially as she faced potential stigmatisation by people in her surroundings.

“The most important thing is the personal psychological treatment. Moreover, the family and local communities need to be educated so there won’t be any stigma that could worsen her condition,” he said.

Facial recognition has been used for a wide range of hi-tech applications in China – from airport security clearance to crime prevention. Now it is being used to solve a more down-to-earth problem.

On Shamian Island, a popular historical tourist attraction in Guangzhou, facial recognition for toilet paper dispensing has been introduced in some cubicles, according to a report in the Guangzhou-based Information Times. Users can remove 90cm of toilet paper after their face is recognised.

If the system detects the same face twice within 10 minutes, no further paper will be dispensed.

Hi-tech toilet paper dispensing is the latest example of China’s efforts to extend artificial intelligence (AI) into almost every aspect of daily life, including smart rubbish bins that sort recyclable material and AI-powered traffic lights.

Facial recognition for toilet paper dispensing first appeared in 2017 in a public restroom at the Temple of Heaven Park in Beijing and was introduced in Shamian in June this year.

Shamian island, separated from the rest of the city by a narrow canal, was the British and French concession during China’s treaty port period from 1842-1943.

Not everyone is happy that AI has extended its reach from security applications to the privacy of the toilet cubicle. “When the use of artificial intelligence becomes surreal it is a warning sign of overheating,” said Nick Yi, a 24-year-old engineer in Guangzhou.

“Maybe facial recognition machines can save toilet paper, but I don’t see how they can save time … There is always a long queue outside the public toilets in Shamian and now everyone has to stand in front of the machine for several seconds to take the toilet paper.”

Authorities in Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen are working on making public toilets smarter. More than 700 cities in China have proposed or are in the process of building smart toilet infrastructure, according to a report by the Qianzhan Industry Research Institute earlier this year.

In Shanghai, the city government has built around 150 smart public toilets that employ infrared lights and ultrasound sensors to detect how long a person has been sitting. Sensors also monitor air quality inside the cubicle and a water-saving feature adjusts the water level based on occupancy time.

In Beijing, facial recognition has found its way into trash sorting to preventing incorrect dumping of waste. In the southern tech hub of Shenzhen, jaywalkers are named-and-shamed by pilot facial recognition schemes.

The market for smart cities in China is expected to exceed 10 trillion yuan (S$1.9 trillion) this year and is predicted to reach 25 trillion yuan by 2022, said the Qianzhan Industry Research Institute.

The use of AI technology in toilets has some supporters. “I think it’s very necessary because if someone steals toilet paper it will run out very soon,” a Guangzhou citizen surnamed Li told the Post. “I don’t mind where hi-tech is applied to, whether in space exploration or toilet-paper-saving if it benefits people by solving problems.”

10yo Boy Found 11 Actual Dinosaur Eggs

July 29, 2019 | Viral | No Comments

Zhang Yangzhe happened to have stumbled upon a nest of fossilised dinosaur eggs while he was searching for a tool to crack open some walnuts.

Apparently, he saw a “strange stone” in the ground when he played by the Dong River in Heyuan, Guangdong Province. He noticed how the stone had “circles” on the surface, and showed them to his mother.

According to Lad Bible, the boy initially thought the peculiar circles on the stone were cement, but then realised the surface looked like exactly like the pattern of a dinosaur eggshell.

FYI, Zhang is really interested in science and dinosaurs. He had seen fossilised dinosaur eggs in the museum previously which explains his familiarity with them.

“I have learned this knowledge in books and in the cultural corridor of my school. I have seen it in museums. Different dinosaur eggs have different shapes.”

His mother, Li, decided to call the authorities to examine the site. Experts from Heyuan Dinosaur Museum confirmed that the “stone” was indeed a nest of ELEVEN dinosaur eggs and promptly excavated the site. The eggs were about 9cm in length.

After excavating and investigating, it’s been confirmed that the dinosaur eggs came from the Cretaceous period (right before dinosaurs went extinct). This means the nest of eggs were 66 MILLION years old.

It’s said that Heyuan is China’s “home of dinosaurs” because a total of 43 fossilised eggs had been found in that city alone!

Heyuan Dinosaur Museum claimed that they have more than 10,000 eggs, a.k.a the most extensive collection of dino eggs in the world. Wow, we’re super tempted to pay a visit to that museum rn.

26-year-old patient Runi Khatun was admitted to a government hospital in the West Bengal state of India after she complained of abdominal pains and vomiting each time she would eat.

According to The Economic Times, Runi is from a village called Margram in Birbhum district and was admitted into Rampurhat Government Medical College and Hospital on 16 July.

When the woman was admitted to the hospital her condition was very critical

According to the Head of the Surgery Department Dr Siddhartha Biswas, she required at least five bottles of blood. 

“She could not even intake food physically so we had to administer Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN) to artificially inject food through her mouth,” said the doctor, adding that she would die if they operated on her, as reported by The Sun.

TPN is a method to supply nutrition by dripping them directly into the digestive system. 

Once her condition stabilised, scans revealed that there was metal in her stomach

When the doctors opened her up, they were stunned to find large chunks of coins and jewellery in the stomach.

The operation lasted for nearly one hour and 15 minutes during which the surgeons removed 90 coins, 80 earrings, 69 chains, 11 nose rings, eight lockets, five anklets, four keys, a watch dial, and two silver coins from the woman’s stomach.

Most of the items were made of copper and brass while some of them were gold which in total were valued at about RM270,000 and weighed 1.6kg

According to Runi’s family, they had noticed earlier that the ornaments were slowly disappearing from her brother’s shop

“We have noticed that ornaments are disappearing. But whenever we questioned her, she started crying,” said the patient’s mother as quoted by NDTV

“Despite keeping an eye on her, she somehow managed to swallow all these objects. She was not well for the past two months,” said the mother, adding that Runi had consulted various private doctors and was on medication with no result. Dr Biswas shared that the patient is now stable and will soon be discharged, adding that she is also currently undergoing psychiatric treatment.
