She was crossing the road aiming to catch the last bus home when she was hit and run over by a taxi.

Madam Tay Kiat Eng, 65, a part-time KFC worker, died en route to Tan Tock Seng Hospital.

Police told The New Paper yesterday that the accident occurred along Bukit Timah Road towards Woodlands Road at around 12.28am on Nov 27 and a 69-year-old cab driver had been arrested.

Police said investigations are ongoing, and Mr Richard Poh, 29, the youngest of Madam Tay’s four children, is appealing for witnesses to come forward and help.

Mr Poh, who is studying in Melbourne, last saw his mother at lunch two years ago when he came back to Singapore for a short visit.

Upon receiving news of her passing, he scrambled to book the next available ticket to Singapore and arrived on the same day of the incident.

He said: “I was shell-shocked when I found out. I didn’t get to spend enough time with her, my biggest regret is not being able to come back to take care of her after I graduate.”

According to passers-by who reached out, two passengers almost immediately rushed out of the taxi after the collision to help Madam Tay, who was moaning in pain before losing unconscious.

ComfortDelGro’s group chief corporate communications officer, Ms Tammy Tan, said it has reached out to the deceased’s next of kin to assist them.

She added: “The hiring agreement of the cabby has also been terminated and we are assisting the Police in their investigations.”

Due to her manly silhouette and outfit, a woman who was caught for theft was nearly stripped naked of her clothes by an angry mob in Indonesia.Shared on an Instagram account, @bekasi, the 1-minute video revealed a woman, also known as NN, 51, seated on a chair of a resident’s home and surrounded by an angry mob. The video was uploaded on Monday, Nov 25th.

According to Bekasi, the woman pretended to be a guest and casually ‘visited’ the resident. NN then slipped into one of the bedrooms in the house and wandered about in it. Fatefully, the owner who was sleeping in the room, woke up and screamed when he saw a stranger in his room.

In a blink of an eye, the whole neighbourhood swarmed over to the house and captured her, which led to her being interrogated in the house.Captioned in the post, “To friends at home, please be careful of women who pretend to be a guest and that will casually slip into your bedroom. The event took place at Setia Mulya Village, Tarumajaya, Bekasi. She tried to deceive people by wearing hijab.”

As clearly seen in the video, the woman wore a black headscarf with a denim jacket and a pair of jeans, making her looking suspiciously like a man.

Boiled with heated emotions, the crowd suddenly started to strip off her hijab, which revealed her manly, coloured hair, and tattoos on her body. This further convinced them that she was a man.

In the commotion, NN defended herself and insisted that, “I’m a girl!’Thankfully, some sensible people actually stopped the rest of the angry crowd from stripping her naked.

NN was handed to the police when the residents decided to call the authorities to settle their dispute. Tarumajaya Police Chief, Yudho Anto Hutri, repetitively stressed to the public that the ‘man’ was indeed a woman.“Woman, woman, she is definitely a woman. Even though she has tattoos on her and her hair is short.”“She was caught even before she could have stolen anything. But she still did invade the room.”Allegedly, NN is suspected of planning to commit theft at the village head’s house.Geez, what’s with the violence though? They could’ve just handed her over peacefully instead of making a racket like this.


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…

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…

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.

As the people inside the car tried to pull the door of the back seat shut, a few men were seen wrenching it open and attempting to pull the child out.

The woman in the front passenger seat was heard arguing with the passersby as they prevented her from taking the boy away.

A white SUV also blocked the black car from taking off, another clip filmed from overhead revealed.

In the video, numerous drivers were seen getting out of their cars to check out the commotion, while others sounded their horns as the stationary vehicles caused a jam on the road.

Claiming to be the boy’s birth mother, the woman said that she was there to take him away with her.

She was also spotted holding up a handmade sign in Malay which read: “The birth mother should take her own child.”

According to China Press, the woman had given the boy up for adoption shortly after his birth.

She recently went to his school and tried to take him away following a dispute with his adoptive parents.

The police were called to the scene and detained the boy’s birth parents for questioning. They’re currently looking for two other suspects.

The child was returned to his adoptive parents who said he suffered bruises from the incident and added that he is recovering from the traumatic experience.


Angered after finding out that her beloved cat was killed by her own housemate, a lady in St Petersburg, Russia decided to give him a taste of his own medicine by hammering him to death.

The lady, Anastasia also went the extra mile and cut the man into pieces before putting them into four black plastic bags. The 41-year old lady then carried the bags, took a bus to the outskirts, burn them before burying the remains.

The victim’s burnt remains were discovered by an individual who coincidentally was passing the area with his dog. According to the police, as reported by Awani, among the body parts that were found inside the black plastic bags were leg bones, the ribs, shoulders, and some skin. The police representative said,

“The suspect hit the victim several times in the head with a hammer. The victim was also kicked multiple times before his body was cut.”

The suspect is now in police custody for investigation for the murder. There are two things that we can learn from this incident. First, never mess with someone’s beloved pet, and second, if you are really angry at someone, please find a better way to deal with the anger or else you might end up doing something you will regret!


SINGAPORE – A female passenger who hailed a taxi at Golden Mile Complex on Tuesday (Oct 15) was in for an unpleasant surprise when she found several cockroaches inside the vehicle.

Ms Tang Ru Ting, who had taken along her packed lunch for the ride to People’s Park Complex, was shocked to see a cockroach crawling out of the seat in front of her a few minutes after she got into the red cab.

The 31-year-old sales executive later realised the insect was but one of many crawling in the taxi.

In a video she submitted to citizen journalism website Stomp, at least seven bugs can be seen crawling in the vehicle, such as the back of a seat and an armrest. It is not clear if all the insects are cockroaches.

“There were many cockroaches and they were crawling on the passenger seat in front of me. I told the taxi driver about the cockroaches and he said they could have come out because of the rain,” Ms Tang told The Straits Times on Thursday.

She said that the taxi driver was also surprised when she told him there were many of them.

The taxi company, Trans-Cab, said it is investigating the matter.

Ms Tang had initially left her food on the floor of the vehicle but, after seeing the cockroaches, decided to place the packed lunch on the seat next to her as the vehicle passed the National Library Building in Bras Basah, hoping the insects would not continue crawling about in front of her.

However, as the taxi passed by Clarke Quay Central, some cockroaches crawled onto the seat next to her.

Reduced to tears, Ms Tang decided to cut her ride short and alighted before Chinatown Point.

“This has never happened to me before and I was shocked,” she said.


Malaysian woman conned by online ‘boyfriends’

October 10, 2019 | News | No Comments

JOHOR BARU – A businesswoman who was two-timing her online boyfriend with another man she met on Facebook ended up being conned of RM800,000 (S$263,193) within a month.

The single woman in her 50s had befriended the men separately via Facebook.

Sources said that within a month of getting to know them, the men began professing their love for her.

One guy promised her US$1mil (S$1.38 million).

The businesswoman then started getting calls supposedly from courier companies and dispatch riders, requesting payment for licences, taxes and immigration clearance.

The woman, believed to be lonesome, transferred money to about 12 individual accounts throughout that month.

According to sources, she started banking in amounts ranging from RM3,000 to more than RM100,000 to these accounts, thinking that she could get hold of the gifts sent by her overseas lovers.

It is learnt that the woman only realised that she had been conned after requests came in for a bigger sum of money.

Sources said that she also started getting threats when she failed to deposit the money.

She related it to her family before lodging a police report.

In another love scam, a housewife who carried out an online affair was cheated of about RM40,000 by a “London boyfriend”.

She had befriended the man on social media.

They got along well and three months later in August, the man wanted to send her some gifts.

The woman, who is in her 30s, was contacted about a parcel being sent from overseas for her was awaiting collection.

However, she was told to pay about RM2,000 for clearance.

Soon after the first payment, the woman started getting subsequent calls for other payments to release the parcel.

Sources said that the woman started transferring the money via online banking to various accounts.

After banking about RM40,000, she realised that she had been duped.

And the promised gifts also never arrived.

The woman then lodged a police report.

A police official confirmed both cases and said investigations were under way under Section 420 of the Penal Code for cheating.

Those with information about such cases are urged to contact the police hotline at 07-221 2999.


It’s the bane of all drivers — a car that’s parked too close for comfort.

On Tuesday (Oct 1), a displeased driver was forced to climb out from her Mazda at a carpark in Marina Bay Sands because the Volvo next to her car was not “parked properly”.

She even left a handwritten note for the other driver: “I think you need to learn how to park properly especially when the parking lots here are extremely limited.”

“I had to get out from the other side (of my car). Thanks!”

Her note sounded polite but the woman ranted in an Instagram story: “(I) was so pissed off that I had to climb over the other side and there’s f***ing limited lots here.”

But it looks like the lady might be the one in need of some guidance herself.

Dashcam footage posted on Facebook page SG Road Vigilante revealed that she had reversed her blue sports car into the space between the black sedan and a pillar.

It was a tight squeeze but she managed to pull it off. She then exited her car and snapped several photos of the Volvo before she left a note on its windscreen and walked away.

It turns out that the spot where she parked her car was not a parking lot — it had neither floor marking nor lot number.

Now that this driver’s folly is out there for all to see, will a traffic ticket come her way soon?

While many netizens are amused by the parking blunder, a Facebook user, who also drives a Mazda two-seater, said it isn’t unreasonable for the female driver to mistake the space for a parking lot.

She wrote: “The ‘lot’ was once an actual lot. But when they widened the columns, one out of three lots was removed, they used dark grey paint to ‘remove’ the lot but the overhead indicators were never removed and it was lit up in green to indicate an empty lot.

“Because of how low the MX5 is, and the fact that they don’t come with seats with adjustable height, it can be hard to see the lines clearly, unless you’re very tall.” 


Police in southern China are investigating the death of a woman who suddenly leapt from her seat and through the door of a moving bus on the weekend.

The unidentified woman was confirmed dead at hospital in Fenggang county, Guizhou province, on Sunday after alighting the bus through the rear door which should have been closed, according to county police.

An officer from the county’s traffic police bureau told the South China Morning Post that an investigation into the woman’s action and the bus driver’s responsibility was under way.

Surveillance footage posted online shows the woman in a yellow top sitting near the open back door before suddenly getting up and rushing through the door.

The door then closes and the bus stops moments later as passengers appear shocked.

The footage was shared widely online on Weibo, China’s Twitter-like platform.

Some internet users said the woman might have been dozing and awoke suddenly thinking she had missed her stop.

Others noted that the door should not have been open.

Just late last month, a woman was injured getting off a moving bus in Chongqing as the driver accidentally opened the rear door, video news app Kankanews.com reported.

The woman, in her 60s, simply stepped off as she saw the door open and thought she had arrived at her destination.

The driver said his safety belt loosened and he accidentally triggered the door button while trying to buckle up. He was held fully responsible for the passenger’s injury.


SINGAPORE – A woman who was caught on video driving a black Mercedes-Benz car against traffic in Upper Cross Street has been arrested. Her driving license was also suspended.

The police were alerted last Friday at 10.24pm to the case of dangerous driving in Upper Cross Street in the direction of South Bridge Road.

No injuries were reported.

In videos posted on Facebook, a black Mercedes Benz car can be seen moving in a direction opposite to the flow of traffic, on the leftmost lane.

A separate clip subsequently shows that the car has mounted the pavement. The driver steps out of the vehicle and utters Hokkien expletives at onlookers before returning to her car.

One of the posts has been shared over 5,200 times.

A clip of the incident posted on the Roads.sg Facebook group has been viewed more than 124,000 times since it was posted on Sunday.
