Here’s The Story Behind The Video Of The Dog Being Dragged By A Truck

Published

on

Animals are innocent beings and more often then not, helpless beings too. Which is why it’s not surprising that a video of a dog being dragged on the road behind a pick-up truck went viral online.

In the 42-second clip, a white-coloured dog can be seen being dragged from the back of the vehicle, apparently by its leash. The incident supposedly took place in Taiping, Perak.

After the video was shared online, netizens demanded justice for the poor animal.

The Malaysia Animal Association also condemned the act

One responsible netizen lodged a police report over the matter.

According to The Star, Acting Taiping OCPD Superintendent Razlan Abdul Hamid said they received a report on the incident on Monday (Feb 11) at about 3.35pm. Upon receiving the report, the police managed to track down the owner of the pick-up truck based on its number plate.

After further investigation, the police found that the pick up truck was being driven by the owner’s father at the time of the incident. The man was reportedly on the way to abandon the dog.

“We have also taken statements from the vehicle owner, who said that his 58-year-old father was the one behind the wheel during the incident.

The man had allegedly wanted to abandon the dog because it was always biting the wiring at his house.

The man claimed he was not aware that the dog, which had been placed in the back of the vehicle, had fallen off and was being dragged.”

Razlan added that the dog had been under the man’s care since it was a year old and that the case would be investigated under Section 44 (1)(a) of the Animals Act for animal cruelty.

This Msian Influencer Thought An Internet Challenge Encouraging People To Steal Was A Smart Idea

Published

on

By

Internet challenges have had a history of sometimes being downright dumb and dangerous. Think about the #TidePodChallenge, the #InMyFeelingsChallenge/#KikiChallenge and the #BirdBoxChallenge.

But before this, we could at least be proud that none of these challenges was started by Malaysians. Instead, the kind of challenges we started had meaning, like Maya Karin’s #RiverOfLife challenge.

Now we can be proud no more. Cause one of our influencers thought it would be smart to encourage people to steal.

via GIPHY

The #JanganBayarChallenge (#DontPayChallenge) was started by a local influencer, Zairulgriezmann, when he uploaded a video of him and a friend telling each other not to pay for things at a mall. They then casually take the item and walk away instead, leaving cashiers confused.

Understandably, the video received backlash from netizens who condemned their behaviour which they said was akin to theft.

After all the backlash, Zairulgriezmann’s friend in the video posted a statement on his IG stories explaining that the whole thing was an act and they had paid the cashiers up front before filming.

Meanwhile, Zairulgriezmann explained things to mStar, saying:

“We only made the video because we thought it would be entertaining for my followers. We already made an agreement with those involved in the video.

They are all my friends. We already paid for our items before filming. We asked for their (the staff’s) permission before going ahead with the video.

I guess a lot of people genuinely thought we didn’t pay since the video showed us walking away. It’s our fault as well for not clarifying what really happened.

We apologise and take all the comments as something positive. We all make mistakes and while we cannot turn back the clock, I suppose we will make videos that are better suited to society here.”

Since then, Zairulgriezmann uploaded this photo on his instagram with a #DahBayar (#AlreadyPaid)

Glad Zairulgriezmann and friends learnt their lesson!

The KJ LRT Line Suffered Technical Difficulties This Morning That Contributed To The Massive Crawl In KL

Published

on

By

We’ve all been through our fair share of awful traffic delays on Mondays. But today’s jam in Kuala Lumpur was worse than usual!

via GIPHY

It all started with a whole lot of rain in the earlier part of the morning. Thunderstorms were reported in the Klang Valley, which started around 2am and lasted until 5am.

Then, at around 7am, Rapid KL tweeted about technical difficulties at the LRT from the KLCC line til the Kelana Jaya line.

And of course, this caused outrage on social media, with many Malaysians worrying that they’d be late on the first day of the week.

Rapid KL updated the public frequently about the situation, with a picture of the technical team trying to fix the issue. They also advised commuters to take buses that had been specially provided to ferry them between the KLCC Station to KL Sentral.

The problem with the LRT also affected traffic surrounding LRT stations. According to Astro Radio Traffic, traffic was especially horrible near the Bangsar LRT station, as there was a MASSIVE 2 hour plus delay from Jalan Templer and Taman Desa on the NPE towards Jalan Bangsar.

Traffic was also very bad for most of the Klang Valley's main roads and highways.

Meanwhile, Rapid KL has clarified that a signalling fault was to blame for this morning's disruption. This small power unit is the main cause of the 19-train failure. However, the rail operator has assured LRT commuters that they do maintenance on the system every month.

via GIPHY

Anyway, if you were stuck in terrible traffic this morning and needed proof to show your boss it wasn't your fault for being late, you're welcome!

Published

Malaysians are obviously big on food, and we don’t like it when people mess with our favourite dishes.

via GIPHY

Yet, some people just seem to like ruining things for others. First, there were the people who added cheese to nasi lemak, creating this monstrosity.

Now, a stall in Cyberjaya has defiled char kuey teow by liberally drizzling cheese sauce onto it. The offensive dish is sold for RM7 a plate.

Twitter user @ShibliVision shared photos of him trying the dish. His tweet blew up with the majority of respondents not taking the idea of eating char kuey teow with cheese too well.

UNFORTUNATELY, the cheesy char kuey teow was so viral that it ended up intriguing Malaysians. So much so, that many actually visited the stall to try it for themselves. According to @ShibliVision, on 5th February, the stall, which operates between 6.30pm – 1.30am, had served over 100 plates of cheesy char kuey teow by 9pm!

Would you try the cheesy char kuey teow? Tell us in the comments!

Malaysia recently disallowed the Israeli Paralympic Swimmers from competing in Malaysia, which resulted in us losing the right to host the tournament.

Hafidz Baharom is a columnist from The Sun Daily. He wrote a widely shared piece on the issue where he criticised Malaysia’s decision to not allow the Israeli swimmers from competing in our country, calling the decision a hypocritical one. Many Malaysians agreed with his stance.

Puan Seri Norma Hashim is the Treasurer of Viva Palestina Malaysia. She has been involved with the plight of the Palestinian people for several years and has published two books to share their stories.

We spoke to both of them to hear their thoughts on the issue.

Is The Course You’re Studying Accredited? Here’s How To Check!

Published

With the recent news about some of our politicians coming under fire over their academic qualifications, there might be some of you out there who are concerned about whether your own degrees are genuine. Especially now, when there are so many colleges and online courses available.

As such, the Education Ministry is urging the public to exercise caution when taking up online courses from universities abroad.

Image via Study London

This is because the Private Higher Education Act is only applicable in Malaysia. Hence, it does not regulate foreign universities.

But, fret not. The Education Ministry has stepped in, urging students going abroad to check if their course is accredited on the Malaysian Qualifications Agency website. Here’s the link to the website so you can check if the uni and course you’re interested in are legit.

via GIPHY

In Malaysia, the Ministry says unis and colleges must ensure all courses they introduce are accredited before the first batch of students graduate. Otherwise, the students’ qualifications will not be recognised by the government.

But to save you from that… just check if your uni is registered here!

via GIPHY

Here’s some good news. The Ministry has actually been actively combating the mushrooming of private higher unis and colleges.

For the past 5 years, the number of such institutions has decreased to about 460, from over 500. This is after it imposed a ban on new unis and colleges in 2013, and shut down non-competitive institutions. You can also do your part by informing the Ministry if you’ve come across unregistered unis or colleges for them to take action.

So, make sure you don’t graduate with a fake degree, coz applying for a job with such a degree can get you in serious trouble!

Published

By

If you’ve been checking up on your Instagram followers and noticed a significant loss, take a deep breath. Instagram has a bug.

Currently, Instagram is investigating a glitch that has caused many accounts to appear to lose many of their followers. Popular accounts like Ariana Grande, Kylie Jenner and Selena Gomez’s have appeared to have lost millions in a few hours

via GIPHY

The social media platform released a statement on Twitter, ensuring its users that they were aware of the problem and are working towards fixing it.

“We’re aware of an issue that is causing a change in account follower numbers for some people right now. We’re working to resolve this as quickly as possible,” Instagram tweeted.

Fast Company originally suggested that Instagram was removing ghost followers.

“Instagram took actions to remove millions of accounts the company believed to be inauthentic.”

This, however, has not been confirmed or commented on by Instagram. For those of you worried about your follower count, take a deep breath and let Instagram do their thing.

Mysterious Hijab’ed Woman In Liverpool Video Turns Out To Be A Malaysian PhD Student!

Published

A woman wearing a bawal headscarf became the center of attention among Malaysians when she was spotted examining Liverpool’s Joe Gomez in a video uploaded to social media in July. Seemingly a Malaysian, people were a little jealous and very curious.

Well, it appears that the mystery has been solved! Recently, Utusan Malaysia managed to identify the mysterious woman as Aleah Mohammad, a Malaysian PhD student studying cardiovascular physiology at John Moores University, Liverpool!

If you missed the whole thing, you can watch the video below. FYI, Aleah appears at the 5:10 mark.

In an interview, the mother of three told Utusan how she came to be on Liverpool’s medical team. Aleah, 37, said it all started after one of her supervisors offered her the opportunity to perform cardiovascular screening tests for the Reds.

“By the end of 2015, I began conducting my PhD cardiovascular research for the Liverpool Ladies team.

Then, one of my supervisors, Professor Dr John Somauroo, who is also a Cardiologist Consultant for the English Football Association (FA) and Liverpool, offered for me to participate in performing the cardiovascular
screening tests for this club.

Since then, I’ve been doing the screening tests for Liverpool.”

Since Aleah has been up close and personal with the team, she entertained Utusan with some details on the players. She said they’re really nice guys.

“From what I’ve seen, Liverpool players don’t ever act entitled or arrogant.  One or two players appear to be a bit more serious than the others and aren’t as talkative, but they always listen to instructions from club officials.

Personally, I’m fond of how Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain carries himself, he’s the easiest to get along with and is very cooperative. Mohamed Salah is a bit shy when you first meet him, but he’s always smiling.

Sadio Mane is very friendly, but he’s also disciplined and is never late for a screen. He seems like the quiet type, but he’s actually really sociable. While Roberto Firmino is always all smiles.

Klopp is exactly how he comes off as in the media. He’s friendly with everyone in the club no matter who you are. He’s always the first person to greet you. However, from what I’ve seen, he becomes more serious when a big game is approaching. He’s committed.”

Apparently, Aleah also mentioned that she’s a Manchester United fan.

via GIPHY

Speaking about her future plans, Aleah hopes to serve the Malaysian sports arena when she returns home at the end of the year.

“I plan to dedicate and share my knowledge and skills with sports agencies, sports associations and football associations in Malaysia, so our medical policies are streamlined and can be better enhanced.”

We’re sure everyone will be fighting to have you on their team, Aleah!

With the start of the new year, one might be excited to see what might be in store in the internet challenges department. Last year brought along a lot of weird, low-key fun and sometimes dangerous internet challenges. And it looks like our very own popular actress, Maya Karin, has sparked the first one this year!

Earlier this week, Maya Karin tweeted a selfie with the hashtag #NewProfilePic.

The selfie showed a serene Maya Karin with her eyes closed, seemingly floating calmly on her back in a river. A few days after she tweeted the selfie, the photo became viral in the Twitterverse. Many Malaysian netizens used the photo as inspiration to post their own version of the ‘river selfie’.

Here are some of the best ones we saw:

The dude who looks like he’s sleeping.

The air cetek but posing maut guy.

The one that made us wonder how long this boy had to hold his breath for.

The guy who chose the wrong spot.

The group of friends who all wanted to have a go

The dude who made his selfie look only a little less gorgeous than Maya Karin’s

And this guy who tried his level best

The best part about this challenge was that it unexpectedly became an awareness campaign with people hashtagging their attempts with #RiverOfLife, promoting clean rivers in Malaysia!

via GIPHY

Now that’s an internet challenge we can all get behind!

Nasi Lemak Is The Star Of A Google Doodle Today!

Published

By

We love our nasi lemak and we’re extremely protective over it. However, we couldn’t be more proud to see the humble nasi lemak making its debut on Google Doodles!

Image via Google

At midnight last night, the nasi lemak doodle premiered along with a short video called “Celebrating Nasi Lemak”.

The doodle documents the process of making the local delicacy from washing the rice all the way to preparing the sambal and condiments and finally ending with the nasi lemak bungkus. The doodle was created on a batik-themed background that also pays homage to our heritage.

Google explains the whole doodle and even includes the history of the beloved dish:

“Today’s Doodle celebrates the rich, fragrant, and spicy dish, known as Nasi Lemak. The dish — considered the national dish of Malaysia and widely eaten year-round — is what many Malaysians start their day with. Also popular in Singapore and Thailand, the humble delicacy is believed to have originated as a hearty farmer’s breakfast on the west coast of the Malaysian peninsula.”

“Although the name translates from Malay as “rich rice” (a reference to the coconut milk included in the recipe) there is another origin story for the name. According to legend, the daughter of a widow named Mak Kuntum accidentally spilled coconut milk into the rice pot. “What did you cook?” Mak asked and her daughter answered. “Nasi le, Mak!” (Rice, mother!)”

“There are many variations of the dish across the multiethnic melting pot of Malay, Chinese, Indian, and other indigenous and imported cultures, but the fundamental recipe — featured in today’s video Doodle — is rice cooked with santan or coconut milk and flavored with pandan leaf and galangal root, served with ikan bilis (fried anchovies), crispy peanuts (skin on), sliced cucumber, hard-boiled egg, and sambal (hot sauce) or a splash of tamarind juice, with an optional piece of fried chicken or beef rendang on the side. Sold at roadside stalls wrapped in a “bungkus” of banana leaf or brown paper, Nasi Lemak is so popular it’s also eaten for lunch and dinner, too!”

Well, we know what we’re having today!
