A post detailing how a man found his lost keys thanks to a kind passerby in Penang has gone viral on Facebook

The post has garnered almost 6,000 reactions after it was posted by Facebook user Ken Lim yesterday, 8 December.

In the post, Lim shared that he only realised the keys for his motorcycle were not with him after finishing work at an event in Penang Hill.

According to him, he took the last train down from the hill and he was afraid that he left his keys at the event venue.

“When I was going to get my motorcycle, I couldn’t find my motorcycle key. I was worried that I might have left my keys on the hilltop,” Lim related.

Lim said that he went into a panic mode, which led him to call his mother to bring the spare keys to him.

But things took a turn for the better when Lim picked up his helmet and found his keys rested safely inside it.

“When I took the helmet out of the motorcycle, I saw the warmest thing ever,” Lim continued.

“A kind person stuck my keys under my helmet and left this note. Although I don’t know who you are, but thank you. Sincerely.”

The note read, “Don’t leave your keys on the motorcycle next time, or else someone will steal it. Remember ya.”

The note was neatly punctured into the keychain and the message was written in big letters.

Lim admitted his clumsiness of leaving the keys on the ignition switch and he wished to find the Good Samaritan who had helped him hide the keys.

“Please help me share and find out this kind person, I want to thank him or her in person,” Lim concluded the post.

Netizens were touched by the story and many have flocked to the comments section to leave heartwarming messages

“An honest person like this is great to be friends with till death,” a Facebook user commented.

Another netizen said he encountered the same incident many times and kind strangers at Gurney Plaza always had his back.

“Yes, there is kindness in society,” said a netizen.

“I often left my keys with the motor. And many times, strangers had helped me put them in my jacket or helmet. People at the Gurney (Plaza’s) parking often helped me.”

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 camps.

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.

A clumsy person made payment into my account by mistake, midnight.Called 10 times between 2:01 am to 2:11am insisted…

Posted by Roger Koh on Sabtu, 23 November 2019

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 his own.

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 power”.

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.

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.

Posted by Roger Koh on Ahad, 24 November 2019

 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. 

Can PAYNOW confirm that the mobile number one pays to need not be the person who owns the account being transferred…

25yo Man Dies of Heart Attack After Futsal,

November 19, 2019 | News | No Comments

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.

33-year-old man from Wuhan, Hubei unexpectedly went blind due to his habit of eating out or ordering takeaways, Sina reported. The man, identified as Lu, had always had good eyesight since he was young but just last month, he found that dark shadows would appear in his vision. 

He thought that this was because he was tired, so he rested more but still, the symptoms persisted. After three weeks of this, he decided to go to the doctor for a check-up. To his surprise, the doctor said that he was suffering from diabetic retinopathy, which is a diabetes complication that affects the eyes. This condition is caused by damage to the blood vessels of the retina at the back of the eye.

This condition can lead to blindness if left untreated and Lu was shocked, as he did not know that he had diabetes. The doctor tested Lu’s blood sugar levels and found that it was at 17.2 mmol/L before meals, which confirmed that he was having diabetes. 

The doctor said that Lu had actually been affected by diabetes for four to five years and it was affecting his vision as he had not taken any medication or made any lifestyle changes. Apparently, the doctor said that it was likely due to Lu’s habit of always eating out or ordering takeaways as he was single and didn’t want to cook. Lu did not like to drink water as well and frequently had soft drinks, which contributed to him getting the disease. 

Lu is currently undergoing treatment and the doctor warns others that diabetes is getting more common these days, especially among the younger generation.

According to China Press, the police received reports that someone wanted to jump off the roof of a 33-storey building, and they rushed to the scene around 10pm on November 10th. They tried to persuade the man to come down and keep him calm as he was very emotional.

Apparently, Wang was under huge emotional stress as his wife had just racked up a huge amount of debt during the Singles Day promotions. She had bought over 300,000 yuan (RM177,559) in designer handbags, expensive perfumes, clothes and many more online. 

He said that this was not the first time, as she had always been very fond of online shopping, but after she gave birth to their child last year, it got worse. During the Singles Day sales last year, she had spent over 200,000 yuan (RM118,374) and he had paid it off for her. She had promised that she would control her spending but had broken her promise and gone on a shopping spree again this year.

Wang says that he earns only a few thousand yuan a month, and he was the sole breadwinner of the family. His wife used to work in a property company but after she gave birth, she quit her job to take care of the baby. When he discovered that she had gone crazy on online shopping again, he was at his wits’ end and decided to kill himself as he did not know how to pay it off.

Luckily, the police managed to console Wang and persuaded him not to kill himself after half an hour. They brought him home and notified his family. His wife promised that she would not obsess over online shopping any more and vowed that she would not buy anything. Wang said that he would try to come up with the amount owed.

It doesn’t matter whether it’s Singles Day sales or not, you should control your finances well so you don’t end up in unnecessary debt!

A man who stabbed his heavily pregnant wife is believed to be suffering from depression, revealed his close cousin

The 39-year-old suspect stabbed his pregnant wife four times – two times in the stomach – on Friday, 8 November.

The 37-week (or 8.5-month) pregnant victim then drove herself to the Putrajaya Hospital after the attack and safely delivered the baby through a C-section. Both the mother and child are reportedly in stable condition.

After learning of the incident, the suspect’s close cousin said the suspect is believed to be suffering from depression due to heavy workload

Only known as Din, New Straits Times reported him saying that the perpetrator – who works as an audio engineer – is believed to be suffering from depression over the past two to three months.

Din also attributed their grandmother’s passing four months ago to the suspect’s alleged depression.

“We have been close since we were children. After our grandmother’s death, he returned to Melaka and seemed to have a lot on his mind,”Din told Berita Harian.

“I asked him why he appeared burdened, he replied that he had a lot of work.

“I told him to come back and work in Melaka since his company has a branch there.

“He told me he had plans to do so after the wife had given birth.”

The 37-year-old cousin added that the suspect and the victim’s relationship seemed normal

“As far as I know, they had no problems with each other. Even the relationship between families from both sides was very close,” he said.

The suspect is currently being remanded until 15 November for investigation

He was arrested at his home in Precinct 9, Putrajaya, which was also where the attack took place.

Preliminary investigations showed that the suspect does not have any criminal records, reported Harian Metro.

The case is being investigated under Section 326 of the Penal Code, for voluntarily causing grievous hurt by dangerous weapons or means.

If convicted, the suspect could face imprisonment up to 20 years, a fine, or whipping.

Man admits having sex with underage stepdaughter

November 12, 2019 | News | No Comments

SINGAPORE – A man picked up his 15-year-old stepdaughter from school and drove the girl to a multistorey carpark, where he had sex with her.

The 41-year-old Singaporean pleaded guilty in court on Monday (Nov 11) to one count of having sex with the minor.

Court documents stated that he committed the offence “with her consent”.

A second similar charge will be considered during sentencing.

He cannot be named as a gag order has been imposed to protect the girl’s identity.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Derek Ee said that the girl had referred to the man as “uncle”.

It was not stated if he is still married to her mother.

The DPP told District Judge Teo Guan Kee: “The accused stated that he initially treated the victim as his stepdaughter.

“However, as time went by, they gradually became closer and often texted each other. This eventually led to the accused having sex with the victim.”

The man picked up the Secondary 4 girl from school at around 12.30pm on Jan 25 this year. But instead of going home, he drove to the carpark in Admiralty Drive.

They moved to the rear passenger seat and the man had unprotected sex with the teenager.

A police officer was in the vicinity at around 2pm when he spotted them. They also saw him and quickly dressed themselves.

The man initially denied having sex in the car when questioned, the court heard.

He was offered bail of $15,000 on Monday.

His mitigation and sentencing will take place on Dec 23.

For having sex with the minor, he can be jailed for up to 10 years and fined.

SELAYANG, Malaysia – His action of putting a pregnant cat into a dryer cost the life of the animal.

Contract worker K. Ganesh was found guilty of causing unnecessary pain or suffering on the cat at the court here yesterday by Sessions Court judge Rasyihah Ghazali.

The 42-year-old accused, who claimed trial when charged with the offence on Oct 16, 2018, was sentenced to 34 months in prison and fined RM40,000 (S$13,000), in default four months in prison.

Rasyihah said the prosecution had successfully proven its case against the accused beyond any reasonable doubt.

In her judgment, she said the sentencing took into account the fact that Ganesh was the one who placed the cat into the dryer.

“The sentence should serve as a lesson to the accused and to society at large to avoid cruelty to animals,” she said.

She ordered Ganesh’s sentence to start on the day of the sentencing.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Nurul Ain Shafie and Selangor Veterinary Department prosecuting officer Roslan Mohd Isa stood for the prosecution while counsel S. Muthuveeran represented Ganesh.

During mitigation earlier, the defence asked that Ganesh be given a minimal prison sentence as he could not afford to pay a fine.

“He only earns RM20 a day and is providing for his wife and child, as well as his father who is a person with disability after his leg was amputated due to diabetes,” said Muthuveeran.

He added that this was also Ganesh’s first offence.

The prosecution, however, argued that his cruel act towards an innocent and defenceless cat warranted a harsh sentence.

Roslan said Ganesh’s behaviour showed that he had no regard for the life of an animal.

“We have always seen this act as a result of the accused’s attitude of not giving any regard to the life of the cat nor does he see an animal as a living being.

“Animals have the right to live and their welfare should be taken care of,” he said, adding that the clip of the perpetrator in the midst of the act – which went viral – has also incurred the anger of many Malaysians.

In the same proceedings, Muthuveeran also asked for an application for a stay of sentence while waiting for the case to be referred to the High Court.

DPP Nurul Ain objected to the application.

Rasyihah, however, allowed Ganesh’s application, with the bail being increased from RM12,000 to RM20,000.

She also ordered any appeal to be filed by Nov 12.

Ganesh and two others, taxi driver A. Mohanraj, 42, and technician SS Satthiya, 26, had all claimed trial last year to the offence committed between 12.54am and 1am on Sept 11, 2018 at a self-service launderette in Taman Gombak Ria, Batu Caves.

All three were charged under Section 29(1)(e) of the Animal Welfare Act 2015.

The charge, which is punishable under Section 29(1) of the same Act and read together with Section 34 of the Penal Code, carries a maximum fine of RM100,000 or a jail term of up to three years, or both, on conviction.

It was reported that Mohanraj – who later changed his plea to guilty – was sentenced to two years’ jail while Satthiya had received a discharge not amounting to an acquittal.

According to the statement of the facts, a launderette manager received a call from a customer on Sept 11, 2018, informing him that there was a carcass of a pregnant cat in a dryer.

Closed-circuit television (CCTV) footage showed there were two men, one of whom took the cat out from under a table in the launderette and threw it into the dryer.

The men then inserted tokens into the dryer before exiting the premises.

The manager then lodged a police report on Sept 14 and the perpetrators were arrested on the same day.

The footage went viral on social media.

SINGAPORE – A jobless young man, who was invited by a man he met online to take part in a threesome with the latter’s girlfriend without her knowledge and consent, was concerned about whether his hairy legs could give the game away, the High Court heard on Tuesday (Nov 5).

This emerged on the first day of the trial of Srihari Mahendran, 23, on 10 charges of various sexual offences – including four for rape – against the woman in 2016.

Testifying as a prosecution witness, the woman’s former boyfriend said: “His legs were hairier than mine, he was asking if it might give (the game) away.”

The former boyfriend’s solution: pantyhose.

The 28-year-old former auxiliary police officer is serving a jail term of 19 years and 11 months.

He cannot be named due to a gag order to protect the identity of the woman, now 28.

He pleaded guilty last year to abetting Srihari to rape and sexually assault the victim.

The woman, who allowed herself to be blindfolded and bound during sex with her then boyfriend, said she believed that she was having sex with him at all times.

On the night of April 29, 2016, the man let Srihari into a room at Hotel 81 Bugis while she was bound and blindfolded. He had sex with her before Srihari took over.

Later that year on Aug 7, he again had Srihari join them in their tryst at the M Social Hotel in Robertson Quay.

She eventually realised someone else was in the room and removed her blindfold and untied herself as Srihari made his escape.

Both men were arrested at the hotel. Srihari’s DNA was later found in swabs taken from her body.

On Tuesday, the former boyfriend told the court how he hatched a plan with Srihari to fulfil his fantasy of watching another man have sex with his girlfriend.

The couple began engaging in soft bondage practices after watching the movie 50 Shades Of Grey to “spice things up”, but she rejected his idea of having a threesome.

In 2015, he began chatting online with Srihari, then 20, on sexual matters.

He said he told Srihari his girlfriend was “not okay” with a threesome and that she cannot know that another man was having sex with her.

“(Srihari’s) sense of keen eagerness in the idea made me discuss with him more about how this would happen,” he said.

He asked Srihari to describe himself, and the latter said he was of average build and of Arab descent.

He also asked for a picture of the lower part of Srihari’s body.

“If he looks okay or better than me, if (the victim) found out, she won’t be too angry about it,” he said.

The two men discussed precautions to take to ensure she could not tell that another person was having sex with her.

This included using pantyhose, maintaining silence and for Srihari to refrain from smoking.

When Deputy Public Prosecutor Ng Yiwen asked if he knew that his plan was an offence, the man replied: “At the time, it wasn’t at the top of my head.”

The man saw Srihari for the first time on the night of April 29, 2016, outside the hotel.

“He looked nothing like how he described himself,” he said of Srihari.

However, he did not abort the plan. “It’s already in the pipeline, it’s just a matter of making it happen or not.”

He described how he let Srihari into the room after tying the woman’s hands, blindfolding her, putting pantyhose on her, and turning the TV on to mask any sounds.

He recorded video of Srihari having sex with the woman, and even made moaning sounds to reinforce the illusion that he was the one carrying out the acts.

The prosecution will be admitting the recordings as well as text messages between the two men to prove that Srihari was cognisant of the plan for him to have sex with the victim without her knowledge.

The trial continues on Wednesday.
