Did you notice? The hashtag #AstroGempakApologiseToTWICE is currently trending all over Twitter.

The issue came to light after TWICE (트와이스) managed to bring home the Grand Prize (Daesang) for Artist Of The Year at the 2020 Asian Artist Awards recently. In the article published on Malaysian portal Astro Gempak, they stated that K-netizens weren’t happy with the result.

Source: Twitter

The main issue that caused a major outcry among fans, though, is the fact that the local portal posted a seemingly disrespectful statement about the K-pop girl group. Gempak came up with a caption on its official Facebook group, giving the impression that TWICE didn’t deserve such recognition.

Many ONCEs (TWICE fans) have took to Twitter to slam the website and urged the writer to do more research on the issue. Additionally, a few other die-hard supporters of the “TT” jam-makers also argued that the girls were well-deserving of the honour, especially since they’re regarded as one of the best-selling girl groups in the K-pop scene.

Check out some of the tweets below:

So far, Gempak has yet to publicly address the issue.

Natalie Siow Yu Zhen was the woman involved in a horrid fight at the Orchard Towers which resulted in the death of a man back in July last year.

The 24-year-old woman was jailed for five months on 9th October following the fatal incident that caused the death of 31-year-old Satheesh Noel Gobidass.

Sources: Yahoo! News / YouTube

Siow was one of the seven people charged following the horrific incident which happened at the well-known building in Singapore. At first, the 24-year-old was accused of murder but the charge was later reduced to assault, hence the shorter sentence.

According to Yahoo! News, she pleaded guilty to one charge of being in the company of Tan Sen Yang, 29, who had a foldable Karambit knife in his possession, and causing hurt to Satheesh by beating him together with Tan Sen Yang, Joel Tan Yun Sheng, 27, and Ang Da Yuan, 27. She also pleaded guilty to one charge of behaving in a disorderly manner which includes her flipping a table towards one of the patrons from “Naughty Girl Club” at the Orchard Towers.

Source: Berita Harian

It all began on the night of 2nd July 2019, when Siow met Joel and Ang at a nightclub in the Chinatown area at about 1am. At the time, the trio and a few other friends decided to head over to another club near the Orchard area, where they meet Tan Sen Yang, who Joel had gone out with three times previously.

This is when the group, which had increased to about 10 people, decided to visit the “Naughty Girl Club” at level two of Orchard Towers until the wee hours of the morning. At the club, Siow and Tan played a drinking game where the loser would have to consume alcohol.

Source: Street Directory

Siow teased Tan about not being able to drink after he lost 2 rounds, which triggered Tan to slam his closed Karambit knife on the table. Joel proceeded to ask him to keep the knife while warning Siow to not offend Tan. The group finally decided to leave the place after finishing their two towers of beer at around 6:20am.

As they were walking out, they encountered another group consisting of five people, where Tan exchanged vulgarities with them, causing a scene to take place. When the situation became heated, the patrons at the “Naughty Girl Club” started to intervene and the situation only got worse from that point onwards.

Source: YouTube

A fight soon broke out where Tan took out his Karambit knife and swung it at the onlookers gathered at the entrance of the club, hitting Satheesh, a security officer, and another man in the face. This was when Siow decided to join in and flipped a table onto the floor before being restrained by the others.

Eventually, Tan’s group left for the ground floor when someone shouted “police”. However, before they departed, Satheesh confronted Ang, who ended up pushing him away. Satheesh responded by shoving him into the shutters of a closed unit which caused a scuffle to ensue.

Source: YouTube

It got worse when Tan swung his blade at Satheesh’s lower jaw and neck. His actions caused the others to join in, along with Siow, who tried to kick and swing her arms at Satheesh before being restrained by the others. On the other hand, Ang managed to punch Satheesh in the face before the others got to intervene.

As the group fled in different directions, Satheesh attempted to walk towards the entrance of the building, but he ended up collapsing face first to the ground. Siow, who noticed she had left one of her slippers, returned to Orchards Towers to retrieve it while walking past Satheesh and leaving immediately.

Source: YouTube

The bystanders then attended to Satheesh while calling the ambulance to seek medical assistance. It was reported that he died from his injuries and was confirmed dead at 7:25am. According to the autopsy report, Satheesh suffered numerous stab and incised wounds, and it was certified that he died due to the stab wounds to his neck.

Following the incident, Siow’s lawyer revealed that when Siow spoke to the police, the woman-in-question admitted that she knew she was at fault for joining the fight. She stated, “When it comes to drinking I get agitated and aggressive sometimes, I know being drunk is not an excuse. At that point in time I saw my male friends having problems with people.”

Source: Mothership

“I did not know the incident resulted in the Indian guy’s death, when I was at level one I saw (his) face (had) a lot of blood…(I am) sorry for his death and did not know he would die.” In the end, District Judge John Ng sentenced Siow to five months jail time, while factoring in her past remand, which was from 4th July to 18th October 2019.

Regarding the others, Joel was previously jailed for four weeks, while Ang got eight months but Tan’s case is still pending before the court. Most of the incidents that happened that night was caught by a CCTV recording and has been uploaded on YouTube.

Take a look at the fight ensued below:

Petaling Jaya District Police Chief Asst Com Nik Ezanee Mohd Faisal said that the police received a report from a 22-year-old woman, claiming that she was raped by a 25-year-old man who is also a celebrity preacher. The victim claimed she was invited by the suspect to his house on 17th October. He had asked her over to share some tips on business marketing, reported Harian Metro.

“While at the house, the victim was sexually assaulted and was also forced to have oral sex with the suspect. Following the incident, the victim suffered trauma and is currently receiving treatment at the University of Malaya Medical Center (PPUM),” Nik Ezanee said in a statement.

In related news, the police have received a total of 6 reports of sexual offences conducted by the offender. As shared by Head of the Selangor Criminal Investigation Department (CID), Datuk Fadzil Ahmat, 5 reports were received in Shah Alam. Meanwhile, another report came from someone in Petaling Jaya.

The police official said, “Investigations are conducted under sexual offences including Section 376 of the Penal Code (rape), 354 of the Penal Code (obscenity), 377 (c) (unnatural sex) and 323 of the Penal Code (injuring).”

It is understood that the suspect’s remand period will end today (Tuesday, 1st December). However, due to several new reports leading to the case, additional remand orders will be requested to assist in the investigation.

Fadzil concluded by urging other victims of the suspect to come forward and lodge a report against the sexual offender.

Have you ever ended up with more than one Foodpanda delivery bringing the same meal  due to technical issues with the app?

Well, one Filipino girl found herself in a sticky situation after 42 Foodpanda riders showed up bringing the same order because of her slow internet connection.

Source: Facebook

It was reported that the 7-year-old girl from Cebu repeatedly mashed on the “order” button as she kept getting an error when trying to put an order for two boxes of McDonald’s chicken fillets with fries for herself and her grandmother. After dozens of taps later, the order finally got processed, however, the app went through along with the previous ones as well.

As the alley outside of the child’s house started to fill with a large group of Foodpanda riders, each carrying two boxes of chicken fillets with fries, Facebook user Dann Kayne Suarez went out of his way to record a live broadcast of the scene via Facebook Live. The user also shared photos of the unusual incident which may stir anxiety for some viewers.

Source: Facebook

“The child cried,” stated Suarez while talking with SunStar. He added,  “I pity her because she did not know what had happened.” Feeling bad for the child, Suarez rushed to her aid by buying the boxes of chicken from the distressed riders while getting others to help as well. They tried to purchase all of the boxes but some of the riders already left to get on with their next delivery.

According to AsiaOne, the girl would have to pay a total of 7,938 pesos (RM672.46) for all the orders, compared to a mere 189 pesos (RM16.03) for her original order of chicken fillet. Suarez mentioned that the girl learned to use the app through her parents in order to help her get food for herself and her grandmother while the parents were off at work.

The streets finally cleared up of the riders by the end of the video, and the alleyway seemed to be way more peaceful compared to a few minutes ago.

Sharnaaz Ahmad recently made his acting comeback through a drama titled “Isteri Misteri”. In the series, the actor takes on the role of a man who gets involved in a polygamous marriage.

In a recent interview with Harian Metro, Sharnaaz shared that it wasn’t difficult for him to bring the character to life. However, he admitted that polygamy in the real world is not always realistic, especially now that he is a single father.

Source: Instagram

“Having more than one spouse may not be possible for everyone. If you don’t have the specific criteria and don’t have enough knowledge, you shouldn’t consider getting into one,” he told the local news outlet.

“Personally, I’ll have to get married again before thinking about getting into a polygamy relationship. But, if I’m given the opportunity, why not?” the “Jebat” actor jokingly added. For those curious, Sharnaaz plays the character Rizal – a man with three wives – in the comedy series.

Commenting about his latest project, which tackles on the taboo topic of polygamy, the 35-year-old said that there are many things that can be discussed in depth when it comes to the controversial matter.

According to Sharnaaz, “When we talk about polygamy, there will be those who touch on being unfaithful and so on. In this drama, we don’t want the audience to be burdened with such a heavy thing. We also try to portray the topic lightly for their viewing.”

Apart from Sharnaaz, the 10-episode series also stars Tiz Zaqyah, Sharifah Sakinah, Azira Syafinaz and Azar Azmi.

If you’ve been keeping up with Azwan Ali‘s life, you’ll definitely know about his past story with Ziana Zain. The TV host previously had a huge crush on the multi-talented songstress, only to get rejected by the latter.

During the recent episode of “Lagu Cinta Kita 2” that aired last night (Sunday, 29th November), the popular singer appeared as a guest alongside actress Zara Zya. The duo couldn’t hold back their tears as they talked about their decade-long friendship.

During the session, Azwan also asked why Ziana rejected him back then. The “Puncak Kasih” hit-maker gave the best answer to his question! In the snippet shared by Twitter user @azraazni, she answered by stating that Azwan was not her type, automatically friend-zoning him along the way.

Seemingly embarrassed after getting friend-zoned by his longtime crush, Azwan reacted by playfully trying to pour his cup of drink on his co-host, Elly Mazlein. Despite that, the “Cit Cat” TV host still insists that Ziana is still his ideal type of girl.

Check out some of the entertaining reactions left by netizens after seeing the clip online:

13-year-old Isabelle Lonjuing Sayeed from Sabah is grabbing headlines by becoming the world’s youngest racehorse trainer.

It was reported that the young Malaysian from Penampang recently managed to obtain a license as a professional trainer and stable agent.

Source: Sabah Daily News

The teenager received the recognition from The Royal Sabah Turf Club (RSTC) and she also managed to beat the record of Bailey Rogerson, who started her professional career in New Zealand at the age of sixteen. The Director of Racing at RSTC, John Gorton, granted her the license on 26th November.

Isabelle, who is the daughter of polo player Adil Ghulam, started riding since she was five-years-old at Glenora Stables in Kinarut, Sabah. The teenager stated, “I am humbled to be the youngest licensed horse trainer in the world. I know the path is not easy, but I am ready to meet the challenges ahead.”

Source: Utusan Borneo

That’s not all, she is also an accomplished polo player handicapped by the Sabah Polo Association, and is currently the captain of El Venato Polo Team, which is Sabah’s first female polo team. She also took lessons at the KL Academy of Polo with Peter Abisheganaden, who she sees as a mentor, earlier this year.

It was reported that Susan Douglas, who is her instructor, taught her about all aspects of stable and horse management, and racehorse training when she was preparing to take the trainer’s test with RSTC. Susan stated, “In addition to owning an ILS Stable Horse, Isabelle is also recognised as a race starter, obstacle tester and nutritionist, which is a tough challenge as the youngest racehorse trainer in the world.”

Isabelle is scheduled to continue her training with US champion coach Bob Baffert in the country next summer. Impressive right? She has definitely made our nation proud with her achievements and we hope that she will keep on striving.
