A story about two ‘best friends forever’ (BFFs) and a non-existent boyfriend has shaken up social media in Malaysia over the past few days

So much so that GSC, a local cinema chain that has a cheeky online presence, ‘awarded’ Best Actress, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Actress, among other Oscar statuettes, to a person in the story.

At the time of this writing, the fabulist in that circle of friends — named Rachel — made a public apology for all of her mistakes in an Instagram post.

Her apology comes after the victim, known only as KY in this article, exposed Rachel’s years-long lies through hundreds of Instagram Stories in December 2020.

It would be difficult to capture every single deception that Rachel orchestrated in a single article. So here is a summary of how Rachel manipulated KY over the course of two years, an ordeal which many netizens have described as “a drama series that not even writers at TVB can create”.

The story started when Rachel and KY met during an event in December 2018

After some chatting, they both learnt that they share the same birthdate.

Perhaps it was the coincidence that helped flourish a strong friendship between the two. The two grew closer as days went by.

But as they got closer, Rachel started moving up her pawns in an attempt to seize the queen, which in the case is KY’s heart.

Knowing that a friend can only take up so much attention in a person’s life, Rachel made up a non-existent person named Daniel and introduced him to KY as her ‘godbrother’.

Rachel used photos of a good-looking person from Instagram to set up Daniel’s WeChat and Instagram accounts. Daniel only existed in the virtual world.

She concocted a story that her godbrother lived in Singapore and tried to matchmake the two.

KY fell into the trap. In February 2019, KY started talking to Daniel on WeChat, but little did she know it was Rachel who was impersonating him.

To make Daniel appear more real, Rachel even used a voice-changing application and sang classical Chinese love songs to KY.

As months went by, KY fell deeper for Daniel and was in a happy long-distance relationship.

Seeing KY was happy, Rachel then fabricated a narrative where Daniel was diagnosed with blood cancer

While impersonating Daniel, Rachel said he was suffering from leukemia.

She even went through the trouble to source photos online to show medical reports and photographs in the hospital, among others, to paint a verisimilitude.

Whenever KY was in a good mood, Rachel  — through Daniel — would tell her that his condition deteriorated.

Every time that happened, KY broke down and cried, feeling helpless that she could not be with her lover in Singapore.

If that was not enough, Rachel even created a ‘godmother’ character — called Cindy — to emotionally manipulate KY even further.

One time, Rachel devised an incident where Daniel attempted suicide and was rushed to a hospital in Kuala Lumpur

Pretending to be the godmother character, Rachel went to the private hospital in person to take photos and videos and sent them to KY.

In order to make the lie appear more real, Rachel also sent KY her real-time location through Daniel’s WeChat account.

Writing on her Instagram Stories, KY said she will never forget the sound made from the medical machines. She was referring to the videos sent by Cindy.

At one point, Rachel — through Cindy — asked if KY wanted to talk to Daniel, who was lying unconscious on the hospital bed.

“I talked for 26 minutes while crying. I bet you were dying from laughter on the other end,” KY said.

When Rachel failed to keep up with her lies, she decided to kill off the godmother character

She (Rachel) could even make up the story of how the godmother decided to take her in as a goddaughter,” KY wrote in the caption of an Instagram Story.

“She said her biological father didn’t have time for her, thus the godmother took pity on her and took her in.”

KY said Rachel self-acted and self-directed in every scenario and wondered what was inside her head.

“You are the most psychotic person I have met in my entire life,” KY chastised Rachel.

On 2 January, Rachel took to Instagram to apologise to KY. The post has garnered more than 4,500 likes as of publishing time.

“Over the past two years, I have been friends with her (KY) and also chatted with her as the boyfriend (Daniel) in order to rope her close to me, controlling her emotions and life for two years,” Rachel wrote.

“Today, I cannot forgive myself for causing her so much harm, especially when she used to trust me and treat me sincerely.”

“Once again, I want to say sorry to KY and her family. Sorry for the harm I caused to you.”

Rachel also apologised to two other friends, who she stole their clothes from, and pretended their mansions and a sports car were hers, among other things.

According to RojakLah, Rachel used the death of the godmother to tell how painful it was for her as she could not see her godmother one last time.

That fabrication won KY’s sympathy, trust, and heartache.

After the incident blew up, many Malaysians flocked to her Instagram account to ask why she did all that

“You look so gorgeous, but why do you want to do such a thing? You forsook your virtue,” read a top comment.

“You are one person, but you could play three protagonists. You are so awesome,” a netizen said sarcastically.

“I personally suggest that you go to see a psychiatrist. In my opinion, I think you are psychologically abnormal,” a person added.


A 41-year-old woman says she sacrificed her job by taking mutual separation scheme in order to save the jobs of three of her colleagues

The woman, Mindy Jassal, is a mother of three teenaged boys in Kelana Jaya.

She was working as a regulatory reporting manager with a bank in Kuala Lumpur.

According to Mindy, she knew all along that when the pandemic first reared its head in January last year, her life would be impacted and she might be making a sacrifice for the greater good.

“I had been instructed by my superiors to prepare a list of at least half the staff in my unit that could be removed under the mutual separation scheme (MSS) that was to be carried out in the middle of the year,” Mindy was quoted as saying in a New Straits Times’ report by Azdee Amir.

Mindy says when her superiors told her to prepare the MSS list for the staff in her unit, her heart sank and she thought about her family

Naturally, my heart sank and I thought about my family.Mindy Jassal

“But I was also thinking about my colleagues and subordinates, those who are younger and had just begun a family,” the 41-year-old said, adding that she then decided to consult her husband.

She told her husband that she wanted to volunteer for the MSS

According to the mother of three, it was a decision her 45-year-old husband, Paramjit Singh, supported after she told him how it could save two to three of her colleagues’ jobs.

“I explained to him that if I took it, then it could save two to three of my colleagues from losing their jobs. I felt that we were financially stable enough if I were to opt for it, and I also wanted to spend more time with our children,” the New Straits Times’ report quoted Mindy as saying.

“When I was working, I got to see them and spend time with my boys only during the weekends.”

Mindy, however, knew that she didn’t just want to be a stay-at-home mother to her three children and wanted to do something

So after taking the MSS from her job, the mother of three decided to pursue her dream of sharing food recipes passed down to her by her late grandmother, mother, and aunts.

“I kicked off my cooking plan in October with dried prawn chilli paste, which was my late grandmother’s recipe, and muruku as well as achi muruku,” she said.

In order to share the recipe, Mindy created a Facebook page and named it MyGranny’s Foods.

The move has now become a means to support the family.

She says that she had spread the word about what she was doing from my home kitchen through family and friends, as well as through social media channels.

“I can sell 150 to 300 bottles of dried prawn chilli paste every month, which is branded as ‘My Granny’s Foods’, and the picture on the bottle is that of my late grandmother,” she added.

Calling 2020 an unprecedented year for everyone, Mindy says she is grateful that she and her family are healthy and able to get by comfortably.

A woman from Kelantan is one of the latest victims of an online loan scam syndicate operating via Facebook

According to Harian Metro, the victim is a trader in her 30s. The incident occurred in October, after she saw an online financial loan advertisement on a social media platform.

Kelantan Commercial CID chief Supt Ahmad Azizul Mohamed told the Malay daily, “The victim was interested in the offer and contacted the individual who was disguised as a representative of the loan company.”

“After some discussion, the victim said that she wanted to make a loan of RM50,000 with a repayment RM500 each month for 10 years,” he added.

The victim made 40 bank transactions before realising that she was conned

New Straits Times reported that when she agreed, she was asked to send her picture, bank statement, and RM300 as a down payment to process the loan.

He said the victim transferred the payment to an account belonging to the suspect on Oct 27, but on the same day, he demanded another RM1,010 to be sent to another account of a different person.

Since then, Azizul said the victim was asked to make several payments to enable the loan to be approved.

“Until 30 November, the victim made 40 transactions to 15 bank accounts owned by different holders. The transactions amounted to RM43,900. She only realised she was cheated after she wanted to borrow RM8,000 from her relative to pay the suspect again,” he added.

The victim filed a police report and the case is now being investigated under Section 420 of the Penal Code

Azizul also noted that online loan fraud is one of the most frequently reported cybercrimes. He urged the public to only make money loans with authorised banking and financial institutions.


A woman in the United Kingdom caused massive damage to a supermarket in Stevenage, Hertfordshire after she went on a bottle-breaking spree down the alcohol aisle.

Viral videos taken by shoppers on Wednesday show the woman sweeping wine and beer off the shelves and chucking them onto the floor, causing a pool of booze and broken glass to build up around her.

“Police were called at around 2.30pm on Wednesday to report an incident at the Aldi supermarket in Fairlands Way, Stevenage.

“It was reported that several bottles of alcohol had been thrown onto the floor and smashed.

A Rapid KL staff has received praise from Malaysians for helping a pregnant woman deliver her baby boy at the Puchong Prima LRT Station yesterday, 8 November

In a Facebook post published today, 9 November, Rapid KL said the incident happened when 32-year-old Shahira Nurdiyana Rauf, who works as an operation staff, was resting at the station.

At about 6.30pm, she heard her colleague screaming for help, which prompted her to rush to the scene to find out what was wrong.

However, the pregnant woman was at the brink of labour

That is when Shahira, a mother of two who recently returned to work from her maternity leave, took control of the intense situation.

Seeing that there was no other option, she used her recent childbirth experience to deliver the baby.Her timely role as a midwife had helped make the delivery a success.

The mother and newborn were rushed to Serdang Hospital once the medical team arrived.

“I was nervous during the incident, but I tried to remain collected with the safety and health of the woman in my mind,” related Shahira

To celebrate Shahira’s courageous and life-saving response, Rapid KL said its parent company — Prasarana Malaysia Berhad — held a mini celebration at its headquarters in Menara UOA, Bangsar, reported New Straits Times.

The group’s chief operations officer Datin Norlia Noah handed over a token of appreciation on behalf of the company and lauded her bravery.

Talking about Prasarana employees’ skills, Norlia said all Prasarana frontliners go through training to face critical situations and know basic medical aid.

Although acting as a midwife is not part of the rail operations staff’s duties, Norlia said the skills acquired through the training will definitely come in useful for commuters one day.


A young Malaysian woman’s tweet of her before and after weight loss photos has gone viral

On Saturday, 17 October, Twitter user @shintyxnn tweeted photos of herself using the ‘How It Started vs How It’s Going’ meme format.

Her tweet blew up and has since garnered over 21,000 retweets as well as 137,000 likes.

Overwhelmed by messages of support from the public, she reveals that there is no secret to her remarkable weight loss

“To be honest, a lot of you have been asking what are my secrets to achieve this result, and the truth is there isn’t really any secret behind this, it is all hard work, being disciplined and consistent,” the woman tweeted.

She shared that cutting down on her intake of sugary drinks and replacing them with green tea or lemon water for one to two weeks showed noticeable results.

She also managed to overcome her eating habits by reducing her food intake by 20% and eating them in small portions instead of gorging everything in one sitting.

However, she still sets weight loss goals by doing workouts regularly

She exercises two to three times a week, for at least 20 minutes each time by running on treadmills and following Chloe Ting’s fitness videos on YouTube.

Her advice is that everyone should exercise at their own pace and not to worry about what others think of them.

“The only person you should compete with is yourself and no one else. If you ever feel like giving up, just remember why you started and stick to your goals!”
