School may be frustrating for students in many ways, especially when
assignment deadlines and examinations push stress levels to a whole new
Very often, dealing with the pressure of academia can be a difficult
thing to do. However, a group of Universiti Teknologi Petronas (UTP)
students in Perak, Malaysia came up with a (literally) straining way of
relieving their stress during the exam period.
The 27-second-long video was shared last week by Malaysian Twitter user (@_amrlhakim) with a meme-inspired caption that explores what boys are really doing when their girlfriends aren’t around.
The clip shows the group of UTP students, whose identities remain unknown, playing an all-out game of tug of war barefooted along the dormitory hallway.
In the game, the losing team on the right could be seen giving way to the other team on the left.
The clip has since been viewed over 700,000 times, bringing much laughter into the dreary hearts of students.
Some have pointed out at how envious and amazed they are at how
creative UTP students can be when it comes to having fun, while others
were laughing at how hilarious one of the guys in the losing team was
seen sliding across the hallway.
users considered the stunt to be one of the reasons why being a dude is
the best (questionable). At the same time, others were thoroughly
amazed and had given it a try themselves.
It definitely wouldn’t hurt to have fun along the way. Or at the very least, make the best of one’s school life with impromptu shenanigans.
The recently-concluded Star Search 2019, held in Singapore, has picked a Malaysian as its champion.
Teoh Ze Tong, 26, emerged the winner of the talent competition organised by Mediacorp, according to a recent news report.
An assistant manager with Carousell, a classifieds marketplace, Teoh was among the favourites in the competition.
“It was actually a lot of pressure on me. I felt so stressed by those predictions and it was only through the help of my mentor and staff that I was able to let go of those stresses and do well,” he said.
Malaysians on social media are seemingly outraged by a beauty pageant that referred to the country as the “Republic of Malaysia”.
Miss Crystal Angel International 2019 pageant, which took place on Monday (Nov 4) in Yangon, Myanmar, apparently had two contestants from Malaysia – one dubbed Miss Malaysia, and the other as Miss Republic of Malaysia.
However, the event organizers later apologized and changed all usage of the “Republic of Malaysia” to “Borneo” on its official Facebook page on Tuesday (Nov 5).
“This mistake did not come from Malaysian participants but it is from our side. Again, we apologize for the misunderstanding,” the statement read.
Despite the apology, the post continued to receive backlash from Malaysians in the comments section.
Based on the Facebook page, the pageant is supposedly “focused on young women’s strength in empowering their rights and passion in culture, heritage, art, tourism and social media.”
It also explained that the purpose of the pageant is “to make beauty pageants more relevant by providing platforms in these millennial times”.
A Malaysian bridal boutique is attracting backlash after they went a little too far off the beaten path for a recent photoshoot.
The offending photos featuring models using actual gravestones as
props circulated on Malaysian Twitter after user chrissytwittwit posted a series of tweets on Nov 5 calling out Mumyqueen Wedding Couture for their tone-deaf photoshoot in a Christian cemetery.
She wrote: “People surely will do anything just for the sake of attention. If you sit on my family’s grave, I will find you right away girl.”
“For us Christians, the cemetery is considered as a sacred/holy ground that has been blessed by the priest, ” she explained.
In response to some Muslims who were apologising on behalf of the models, she added: “There is no need for you guys to say sorry on behalf of your religion.”
“No matter your race or religion, If you’re an idiot, you’re an
idiot. We’re not angry because of their race or religion but because
they lack respect for the places of others.”
The photos ignited a heated debate among Malaysian netizens, with many slamming the company for their insensitivity.
Others placed the blame on the photographers and said that they should have known better.
On the other hand, some argued that there was nothing wrong with taking photos at a cemetery.
Nur Amirah Mohd Amiruddin, 26, the founder of Mumyqueen Wedding Couture, apologised for the photoshoot in an interview with Harian Metro today (Nov 6), saying in Malay: “I admit my mistake and apologise to all that I offended.”
Amirah also clarified that the pictures taken on Sunday (Nov 3) were
shared “for fun” and were not intended to ridicule any other religion or
to seek publicity.
She had chosen to take the pictures in a cemetery to “be different”
and had taken inspiration from photoshoots from other countries.
“At any rate, I accept the criticisms of the public with an open heart and admit my mistakes but please do not blame the models,” she said.
You know how mum always says to separate the whites from colours. Seems like this guy missed the memo.
A Malaysian man by the name of Adli Amirullah (@AdliAmirullah) was in dire need of help after he ruined his wife’s white laundry in the wash — he had tossed in a red shirt.
What was once a spotless white blouse had since been dyed in unsightly hues of pink.
His desperate call for help went out on Twitter on Wednesday (Oct 29) when he discovered the state of his wife’s blouse, with a caption that reads: “Guys, I need help. I accidentally washed my wife’s new white blouse with his new red’s blouse. And now the white blouse became pink! I have not told her this yet. Trying to solve first. HELP”
Things got even direr the more he tweeted about the situation. His wife had specifically bought a new white blouse because she didn’t have one in her closet. She even sent him a message asking him about the new blouse as she couldn’t find it.
Following the tweet, netizens went on to give suggestions as to how Adli could still rectify the issue.
Determined to fix the issue, he decided to heed the most popular
advice: soaking the stained blouse in a mixture of Clorox and soap.
After giving it a good wash, he found that the colour did not budge at all.
Even so, the netizens continued to suggest what he should have done in the first place. Some recommended a different solution of removing the pink stain while several others gave him tips on how he should do the laundry.
Others had pointed out that he would have solved this issue easily by buying his wife a brand new blouse. Along with some romantic gestures to appease her.
Having given up on clearing the stains, Adli went on a wild hunt at a mall in a bid to replace the blouse without raising any suspicions. Thankfully, he managed to find the white blouse, which was apparently the last one in stock.
In the end, he came clean with his wife about the shenanigans. She was fine with everything — except for the fact that he went to the mall without her.
KUALA LUMPUR – A mobile phone shop owner was fined RM8,250 (S$2,686)
at the Magistrate’s Court here on Wednesday (Oct 30), for possessing
more than 50 lewd videos in his phone.
See Foo Hoong, 36, pleaded guilty when the charge was read in front of Magistrate Nur Farahain Razlan.
See was charged under Section 292 of the Penal Code, which carries a jail term of a maximum of three years or a fine, or both, upon conviction.
According to the charge sheet, See was found to have 55 obscene
videos in an iPhone X at an Old Town White Coffee branch at Bandar Baru
Sri Petaling on Oct 25, 2018.
According to the statement of facts, police and officers from the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) had gone to see See at the Old Town White Coffee branch to investigate him under an offence related to Section 233 of the MCMC Act 1998 for distributing prohibited content.
During the investigation, the authorities seized the phone from See
and found 55 obscene videos on the phone after a forensic analysis was
conducted on the phone.
MCMC prosecuting officer Nazrul Nizam Zameri asked for a deterrent
sentence to be handed to See as a lesson for the accused and the public.
See’s lawyer KT Tang then asked for a lesser sentence, seeing that this was the accused’s first offence.
Tang said that See also has to provide for his family.
“The accused has also learnt his lesson and won’t repeat the offence,” he added.
Magistrate Nur Farahain ordered See to be sentenced to three months’ jail should he fail to pay the fine.
Perhaps the movie Titanic is to blame for popularising certain activities in the car.
Two college students from Penang, aged 19 and 25, were getting frisky
in their ride when a police officer tapped on their window on Saturday
night (Oct 19).
The officer’s sudden appearance shocked the couple, resulting in a high-speed chase after they took off in a panic.
Police officers had been inspecting cars that were stopped along an
emergency lane when they came across the couple in their car, reported China Press.
Upon being discovered, the pair panicked and immediately sped off.
According to the assistant director of the police district, the
couple’s unusual behaviour raised suspicion, prompting the police to
In their attempt to escape, they lost control of the car and crashed into a toll booth railing, knocked over a motorcyclist before their vehicle veered off the highway and dived nose-first into a large drain.
The pair were arrested the moment they escaped from the sunken vehicle.
While they made it out of the wreck largely unscathed, the
motorcyclist was not as lucky — he had to be taken to a nearby hospital
to treat his broken legs.
Further investigations revealed the two were not under the influence of drugs or substances. The case is currently under investigation for reckless driving.
Baby boomers might seem to enjoy ragging on about how Gen Zs are
permanently glued to their phones and never seem to leave the house, but
these kids in Malaysia are proving them wrong by showing us just what
it means to be wild, wet and free.
More specifically, they did it by turning a regular drain in their neighbourhood into a waterslide.
In a video posted on Facebook on Oct 13, several kids can be seen
sitting in a large drain, “holding back” the flow of water as a smaller
kid in red took his place at the very front. In one fell swoop, the
children stand up, releasing the flood gates, and the kid in red shoots
off with the currents.
He continues zipping down the drain for at least half a minute, at one point even disappearing from sight as the drain dips under the pavement, before emerging on the other side and stopping himself with the help of a pole.
The video had almost 9,000 shares at the time of writing.
Though most netizens were impressed by the children’s sheer ingenuity
and creativity, some couldn’t help but worry about the safety of such
“joyrides”, pointing out just how dirty the drains were.
Echan, the man behind the camera, responded in the comments with a photo of the boy with the caption: “That kid in the red shirt… Thank god. Still doing okay… Don’t worry… His mother already chased him around the garden to whip him with a rubber pipe.”
