Here’s What’s Up With That Viral Video Of A Dude Who Used His Motorcycle To Langgar His Awek

Published

By

A video recording showing a dude hitting a woman, believed to be his girlfriend, has gone viral on Twitter since last Friday. The one-minute-19-second video was uploaded by a social media user and has since been viewed over 500,000 times.

The recording shows the dude scolding his girlfriend. Then in a sudden bout of rage, he ends up using his motorcycle to langgar her.

Muhamad Khalil Jamian, 30, a bystander who happened to record the incident spoke to Astro Awani over what he saw. According to him, the incident occurred outside a condominium in Bangsar South at about 9pm on Friday.

Khalil said he didn’t expect the incident to escalate as such. He explained that in the beginning, the man didn’t even raise his voice. However, at one point, the man became so angry he started beating the woman.

“There was a short argument, but I think maybe the woman had done something.

I heard him scold her saying “Shahirah, why did you do such things behind my back?”

First, the man was crying, then he rode off on his motorcycle leaving the woman behind because she refused to go with him.

About a minute or so later, he turned around and confronted her again. An argument ensued and he turned his motorcycle and knocked into her with it.”

Seeing the incident escalate, Khalil shouted at the man from several floors above, hoping to get him to stop hitting the victim. Khalil said, besides knocking into her using his motorcycle, the man also slapped, punched, and hit the victim’s head using a handbag. Khalil added that the incident happened so quickly he didn’t have time to do anything other than shout.

“The attack lasted about one to two minutes, and then the couple left together. If I had gone downstairs, they wouldn’t be there by the time I arrived.

Also, a tall concrete wall surrounds my housing area. To get to where they were, I would have to go downstairs and get into my car and drive out of the area.

If I called the police, I don’t think they would be able to arrive in time either.”

Khalil said that if the fight had lasted for a while, he would have surely gone and helped the victim. However, he personally didn’t think the man intended to hurt the victim. Based on what he heard, the man seemed to care for his girlfriend.

“I heard him say “I’ve been taking care of you, how could you do this to me?” So, I think he still cares for her.”

“If the woman hadn’t done anything wrong, she wouldn’t have sat there taking it like that, she would have fought back. Maybe there’s something that we aren’t aware of. We cannot make any assumptions”

Khalil has since lodged a police report of the incident.

He also advised the public to avoid speculating and to be concerned and helpful citizens if they were ever faced with a similar situation.

The police suspected he was doing drugs in public, so they picked him up. According to The Star, Langkawi police chief Supt Mohd Iqbal Ibrahim said they sent out a couple of popos to investigate after they saw the video online.

They detained the 60-year-old man and conducted a drug test on him, but surprisingly it came back negative. Turns out the uncle was just smoking a type of tobacco called “kao ye” or “hong yen” which isn’t considered illegal.

Apparently, the uncle and his wife followed a tour group and arrived in Langkawi on Sunday for a 5D4N tour.

He reportedly claimed that customs officers had scanned his baggage and found the “bong”. But they let him bring it in as it wasn’t against the law. After he tested negative for drugs, the Langkawi police released him but confiscated the bong and tobacco.

That Viral Message About The Danger of Gulping Down Cold Water During Hot Weather Is NOT TRUE!

Published

By

You might have received a message on Whatsapp that you shouldn’t gulp down cold water or even take cold showers during hot weather. The message claims drinking cold water can cause your blood vessels to quickly contract while taking a cold shower on a hot day and could cause a stroke! 

Well, it’s not true.

We spoke to Dr Rafidah Abdullah, a spokesperson from the Health Ministry, who told us that there’s no scientific evidence that says we can’t drink cold water.

She explains that the message is factually wrong and it doesn’t give the right advice for surviving the hot weather.

This is what she said you SHOULD do:

Dr Rafidah says you should avoid going outside when it’s hot, stay hydrated and also wear a hat or use an umbrella if you need to venture out.
She also explains that heat stroke doesn’t happen easily, adding that the symptoms include dizziness, headache, and nausea.

Najib Razak Got Schooled By Facebook User For Complaining About The State Of Our Hungry University Students

Published

By

Recently, we found out from the news that Malaysian university students are so broke they can hardly afford to eat once a day. On the same day, the government released a statement informing press that a foodbank initiative had been launched and was already on the way to help these broke students.

Several hours later, ex-premier, Datuk Seri Najib Razak took to Facebook to voice his concerns over the students and how the current government was not handling the situation properly.

Here’s a translation of his post:

“I am tearing up just reading this news.
Only eating once a day,
forced to go hungry because they don’t have enough money and the price of goods is high.
That’s the fate of our students today.
I still remember during the presentation of Budget 2019.
What did they say?
The biggest budget in history!
The education sector will get the biggest share!
Malaysia is a credible, dynamic economy and the people will prosper!
Yes, Budget 2019 had RM314.5 billion. But where did it go?

Yes, the budget for the education sector had RM60.2 billion. But what it used for?
What’s the use if our students are starving?
What’s the meaning (of Budget 2019) if we can’t afford to buy things on our own land?
What is the use of the government if not to defend, help, and improve the life of the people?
Please sympathise with the people, Ministers of PH.
I can’t believe that citizens today need to kneel and beg for charity from Putrajaya.”

Thennnnnn, a Facebook user, Hayati Ismail wrote an “open letter” to Najib on her Facebook. You can read her reply below:

Based on what we can see from her other Facebook posts, Hayati Ismail is a member of the Foodbank Foundation that is currently working with the government on the foodbank initiative for the starving B40 students.

Watch Out! This Hot Weather We’re Having Could Bring Snakes Out!

Published

on

By

It turns out that the probability of finding snakes in your garden, under your car or around your house skyrockets during hot weather, much like the weather we’re having right now!

Case in point, Facebook user Arif Azmi recently shared the shocking moment he found a 4.8-metre long python in front of his house.

Image via Facebook

According to herpetologist (TIL a herpetologist is someone who specializes in reptiles and amphibians, including snakes.) Dr Teo Eng Wah, hot weather encourages snakes to come out in search of a bite to eat and some shade.

“It is the extreme heat that forces snakes to seek refuge in residential areas, primarily to look for food and shelter,”

FYI, the Civil Defense Department records show that since January, at least 1,046 snakes have been caught by the department in Terengganu alone. The types of snakes caught include pythons, the venomous king cobra and the equally dangerous pit vipers.

State Civil Defence chief Lt-Col Che Adam A. Rahman explained to New Straits Times that his department is working closely with the Wildlife and National Parks Department with regards to the matter of these snakes.

“We are working with the Wildlife and National Parks Department, which the snakes were handed over and released at locations unknown to us, but far from human habitation,”

Dr Teo, who himself has been bitten four times by snakes, advises the public to refrain from trying to catch snakes themselves unless they are properly equipped and trained to handle the animals, regardless of whether or not the species of snake found was venomous.

“Avoid contact. The next best way to prevent snakes from appearing in or near your house is to make sure that the surroundings are clear of rubbish or leftover food, which attracts rats.

But if you stumble into one, call agencies that handle such creatures.

Some species of snakes are protected, like those in the cobra family.

Some of the smaller species, such as the venomous pit vipers are not easily spotted, unlike the huge king cobra or python. But most snakes will avoid human contact,”

So, clear up the clutter around your house, have the emergency services contact number, 999, on speed dial, and hope for the best, everyone!

Adabi, yes the famous spice company, tweeted via their official Twitter account that their brand of turmeric was recently used as an elephant’s face and body mask at Zoo Negara.

The elephant looks so pleased after too!

Recently, KFC released their new Ghost Pepper Zinger and Twister, inspired by one of the spiciest chilis on the planet, the ghost pepper chili.

KFC claims that the Ghost Pepper Zinger and Twister will tingle your taste buds with a “slow and lingering heat”.

The ghost pepper was known as the world’s hottest chilli pepper in 2007, but was dethroned by the Carolina Reaper pepper in 2013.

But it turns out that people who have tried the Ghost Pepper Zinger and Twister commented that it isn’t very spicy at all.

Apa lagi, McDonalds Malaysia pun took this opportunity to throw shade at KFC la, and plug their best-seller instead; the Spicy Chicken McDeluxe.

Posted by McDonald's on Thursday, 14 March 2019

In the Facebook post, McD said “Ghost Pepper? Pfft… nothing ghostly about this”, low-key claiming that their Spicy Chicken McDeluxe is lagi pedas.

According to Marketing Interactive, McD marketing director, Eugene Lee said that their “social listening team” picked up on the comments about KFC’s Ghost Pepper Zinger and Twister not being spicy. Some of the comments apparently mentioned that if Malaysians wanted a truly spicy burger, they should go and get the Spicy Chicken McDeluxe instead.

“So, we used this info and came up with a cheeky ad to have some fun with what customers were already saying,”

His arrest happened just a couple of hours after he posted the rude comments online as other users quickly called him out and tagged PDRM on Twitter, requesting for his immediate arrest.

This case follows two other recent cases of Facebook users being detained for insulting Islam. The two other users were sentenced to prison for 7 months and 10 years respectively. In response to this, Minister of Communications & Multimedia YB Gobind Singh urged Malaysians to exercise their freedom of expression responsibly while his ministry considers new laws to regulate insensitive comments on news portals and social media.   

“Freedom of expression is not meant to promote lewd, vulgar or sexist comments. Neither should we condone physical threats or threats of bodily harm on social media.”
