An angry man trying to drag another motorist online for overtaking him got his shaming attempt backfired.
The man had been hogging the fast lane, after all.
A man who goes by the name Vincent Kim did not appreciate getting overtaken by a Skoda sedan driver while driving along the two-lane viaduct last Wednesday (Feb 5). So upset was he that two days later, he uploaded dashcam footage on Facebook, berating (in all caps) the other motorist for “rushing”.
Vincent was particularly mad because the Skoda driver had allegedly endangered the lives of his family inside the car.
Instead of getting people on his side, the man was the one at the receiving end of internet condemnation. You see, netizens watched both clips and determined that Vincent had been… road-hogging.
Cruising at a leisurely 70 km/h (according to the dash cam’s heads-up display), Vincent had been travelling along the right-most lane, rightfully abiding by the speed limit. But commenters slammed him nonetheless for not giving way to overtaking vehicles behind him.
Even though the doctor wrote a prescription for him, the patient was informed that the medication was unavailable.
In the hospital’s CCTV footage, the man could be seen handing over a card to the staff behind the counter before pulling down his mask to cough at them.
A woman could be heard explaining that the man had a high fever of 39 degrees for four days. After finding out they had run out of the medicine in his prescription, the patient allegedly threw a temper and demanded a refund.
The man was merely suffering from a case of the regular cold and fever, a hospital representative told PearVideo.
After the patient left, the area was quickly disinfected and the hospital reported the incident to the police department. The man has since been located and he has consented to co-operate with the authorities.
A 50-year-old mentally disabled man from Vietnam has to look after his ailing mother who had always taken care of him all his life.
According to China Press, the woman, now in her 90s, had five children. Two of them passed away while another two got married and started families of their own.
Her youngest son has been mentally disabled ever since he was a child and has always been dependent on her. He grew up under the care of his mother.
However, now that that she is getting older and has many health problems, it has become very difficult for her to not only take care of her son, but to take care of herself.
Without sufficient money for medical bills, she just lies in bed thinking that “sleeping is just fine”.
Seeing his mother’s condition, the woman’s mentally disabled son decided to take up the responsibility of caring for his mother by himself. He knows that she has been the one taking care of him all these years and says that it is now his duty to honour her.
However, due to his mental disability, there’s no way for him to find work. So, he goes to the market every day to find work to make a living.
And because he’s worried about leaving his mother alone at home and afraid that something bad would happen to her, he would wake up before the sun rises while his mother is sleeping and return home by dawn.
He earns money by picking up rubbish and buys food for his mother. But because he knows that she is too sick to have solid foods, he would buy milk for her instead.
Additionally, he would change her diapers for her and clean her body.
News about this man and his dedication to his mother spread online where it touched the netizens in Vietnam.
We certainly are touched by this story too! Hopefully after news about this has spread, someone would be willing to help this poor family out.
According to The Star, a 21-year-old Indonesian man is suspected of killing his pregnant girlfriend, 21, after finding out that she was four months pregnant. The situation got a lot trickier as the two were students at Makassar State Islamic University (UIN), Alauddin.
Satriani, the victim’s cousin, was the first to find her dead body on December 14th. The victim reportedly had fatal stabbing wounds on her body.
“The victim was found covered in blood in her bedroom,” Makassar Police Chief Sr. Comr. Yudhiawan Wibisono said. The killer was also suspected of suffocating her with a pillow.
Reported by Yudhiawan, the suspect, Ridhayatul Khair, was apprehended at the victim’s funeral.
“He admitted to investigators that he had killed the victim. He said the victim had said she was four months pregnant and wanted him to take responsibility. The victim threatened to tell Ridhayatul’s family about the matter. He became enraged and murdered her,” reported Yudhiawan.
The police also announced that the weapon of murder, a kitchen knife, was found at a riverbank not far from the victim’s house.
If found guilty, Ridhayatul could be charged under Article 340 of the Criminal Code on premeditated murder and may be eligible for a life-long jail sentence or a death sentence.

A 20-year-old man recently passed away after he accidentally drank detergent instead of water because he was too focused on playing PUBG on his phone.
According to Oriental Daily, the young man, who went by the name of Saurabh Yadav, was reportedly travelling with his friend, Santosh Sharma, on an express train from Madhya Pradesh to Agra, India. To pass time on the journey, the man whipped out his phone and started playing PUBG but soon grew thirsty.
With his eyes still glued intensely to the screen, Yadav reached into Sharma’s bag and pulled out a can of liquid. He opened the can without looking at the label and drank the unidentified substance, thinking that it was water or a flavoured drink.
Soon after, Yadav began to feel as though his organs were burning and quickly looked at the “water” he just ingested. He was shocked to discover that the can was actually filled with cleaning detergent!
In a flurry of panic, Sharma and his other friends called out for help but the train was moving at full speed and they were told that the moving vehicle would only stop at its planned destination.
Unfortunately, by the time they reached Agra, Yadav had passed away from poisoning. When questioned by authorities about why he carried cleaning detergent with him, Sharma revealed that he was a jeweller and needed the solution to clean silverware regularly. However, Yadav’s family still believes that his friend deliberately let their son ingest the liquid, fully knowing that it would poison him.
Advancement in technology has made transferring money easier.
It has, unfortunately, also made transferring money to the wrong person just as effortless.
Just ask Facebook user Geraldinep Phoa, who made the mistake of
transferring $500 to an unintended party, with the incident descending
into a case of “he said, she said”, and reports being filed by both
In a note and series of screengrabs posted on Saturday (Nov 23), the woman recounted how she had accidentally transferred $500 meant for a friend to a stranger by the name of Koh Yeow Nguang.
Although she tried to contact him in hopes that he would respond, Phoa alleged that Koh ignored multiple calls from both her and her husband and failed to reply to any of her messages.
based on the screenshots provided,Koh did reply to her husband with a simple “Who?” at 2.03am, and after understanding the situation,replied that he would check the next day.
However, Phoa claimed that Koh subsequently blocked their numbers.
She accused Koh of being “greedy” and “hungry over (her) hard earned $500”, not before stating that she had already made a police report against him.
Phoa also included multiple pictures of Koh in her post, along with
the name of his business and several of his personal information.
Koh has since spoken up with his side of the story in his own post on Facebook yesterday (Nov 24).
He detailed his story in a series of screenshots of the police report that he, too, had filed, over alleged defamatory remarks.
In his report, he explained that he blocked their numbers purely because they had been disturbing his sleep.
Koh also initially believed the two could be scammers, as he claimed
he had neither signed up for Paylah nor PayNow, and hence questioned the
authenticity of their claims.
He also alleged that his outlet manager from one of his eateries had
been harassed by the couple, causing them to close the outlet almost two
hours earlier than normal.
As for Phoa’s posting of his photos and online information, he accused her of defamation too.
On top of that, Koh also claimed that he received a call from an
Investigative Officer(I/O). Upon calling her back, she had demanded that
he “react and return the money immediately” or make a police report of
In a screenshot of the statement that he gave to the police, Koh
described the call as “totally impartial” and called it an “abuse of
Netizens were not impressed by their game of “he said, she said”, and instead scolded the both of them for being immature.
Many thought that Phoa had been unreasonable and entitled for expecting Koh to attend to her demands despite the unearthly hour at which she had contacted him, while others berated her for her negligence.
https://www.facebook.com/Rogerkoh0203/videos/10157835349222070/On the other hand, some found Koh ridiculous for not returning the money and attempting to play the martyr.
In two separate updates on Monday morning (Nov 25), Koh shared that he has not been able to uncover the account that had received the $500.
In a video he shared of himself this morning, he said that he will be contacting the IO in charge of the case, “if the amount is being traced and identified that it’s been deposited into my account, any one of my 30 accounts.”
However, he added that it would take some time as he is currently
away in Indonesia and would only be back in town the following week.
Later that afternoon, he stated in a post that the transfer has not been logged among his many accounts, and questioned how it could have happened.
AsiaOne has reached out to the Singapore Police Force for more information and will update this article accordingly.
Should you wind up in a similar situation perchance, we found out that you can actually attempt to contact the bank for assistance in reclaiming or returning the money.
A tragedy occurred when 25-year-old Amirul’s face turned pale and he fell unconscious on the night of 6 November after his futsal session with his friends. Although he was sped to the hospital, Amirul was unable to make it in the end. It’s even more saddening when the 23-year-old wife had to rush from Johor to Shah Alam upon receiving the news, and she still couldn’t get to see him before he took his last breath.
Before Amirul passed on, he kept apologising knowing that he couldn’t make it any longer. He was also sorry about not being able to go for his honeymoon with his beloved wife. His cause of death was later confirmed as “ischemic heart disease”, also known as a heart attack.
According to See Hua Daily, after the couple got married two months ago, Airina (the wife) had to work in Johor, hence they began their long-distance relationship. The last time Airina saw Amirul was on 31 October, about six days before he passed away. Airina is still reminiscing and replaying the last voice note her late husband left for her before he went for his futsal practice. That was the last time she ever got to hear his voice.
“This was the last voice note you sent to me, and it’s the softest voice I’ve ever heard. You (Amirul) were never this gentle. I’ve already replayed this for a thousand times! Haha!”
Heartbroken by the passing of the love of her life, Airina shared about their lovely journey on her Instagram account, which also included the pain of handling his burial and living life without him from now on. She also mentioned that this piece of news wasn’t intended to scare the public about losing her husband because of futsal, instead, she wanted to remind us to treasure the moments we have with our partners.
Deepest condolences to Amirul’s family and Airina.
