Man Attempts Suicide At KLCC, Gets Mocked By Malaysians Instead

Published

on

Suicide usually occurs when a person feels they have run out of solutions to problems that they face in life. To them, these problems seem inescapable, intolerably painful, and never-ending. But, suicide is a permanent solution to problems that are actually temporary. Trite though it is, “all things come to pass.”

A 49-year old Chinese man must’ve been experiencing these very feelings on Saturday (24 Nov) when he stood at the edge of the main corridor barrier of Suria KLCC’s sixth floor and threatened to jump if anyone went near him.

The authorities reported that the fire department received a distress call regarding the incident at 4.52pm and deployed fifteen personnel, who installed a net on the first floor as a precautionary measure. After more than two hours, it was during a moment of distraction that rescuers managed to grab the man and haul him to safety.

While there are many speculations as to why the man wanted to end his life, there have been some details of the man’s situation that have been revealed.

According to NST, about an hour before the man threatened to jump from Suria KLCC’s sixth floor, he met with Kepong MP Lim Lip Eng.

Lim shared the information via a Facebook post several hours after the incident. Lim did not clarify what exactly it was that the man demanded, though China Press reported that the man had wanted the MP to accompany him to a police station to lodge a police report.

However, as Lim had an urgent meeting to attend to, he could not immediately cater to the man’s request. Instead, Lim asked him for his contact details so that he could contact him later. The man was infuriated by this and shouted at Lim before storming out of the office and apparently making a beeline for Suria KLCC.

Bomba and police personnel present at the scene believe that the man is suffering from mental health issues as he kept talking about different problems he has been facing in his life, but he couldn’t keep to one story.

During the standoff, he had complained that his wife divorced him and took their child with her. He also claimed that he had been hypnotised by a woman who misused his credit cards and cheated him out of RM60K.

Whatever the man’s reasons for wanting to end his life, several people at the scene of the incident were disturbingly ridiculing him, laughing at him and some even encouraged him to jump.

Here were some of the tweets that were posted during the time of the incident, showing how insensitive some Malaysians were to this man’s plight.

Translation: “Taking so long to jump”

Translation: “He wants to jump? Please request that he does a backflip”

Translation: “The suicide attempt at KLCC earlier today is called being dramatic. Just tie bricks to your legs and jump into a river, so much easier. If you really want to look for publicity, then join MENTOR OTAI, it’s so much more awesome. If you’re lucky you can even become a celebrity.”

Translation: “The person who tried to kill themselves in KLCC just now is such an idiot. So uncivilised”

Translation: “Dying in KLCC would be so GRAND 🤘🏼”

Translation: “While everyone else was busy watching the fire brigade trying to save the Chinese guy attempting suicide, I was busy choosing what to eat from a menu. My hunger was more important, if I don’t eat, then I could die, and who would save me?!”

Translation: “The time it’s taking for him to just jump is pissing me off. He’s already smashed his phone on the metal railing and thrown that down. He’s even thrown his wallet. Unfortunately, there’s already a safety net on standby for him on the first floor. So, he can forget about killing himself. Maybe he can just try slitting his wrists at home instead.”

Translation: “Of all places to commit suicide, KLCC is the place he chooses. He obviously just wants to become viral. Wouldn’t it be easier for him to just sit on some train tracks? No one would stop him then. If, of course, he really wants to commit suicide la

It was reported that the man has since been handed to the police for further action. In case you didn’t know, attempting suicide is considered a crime in Malaysia. According to section 309 of the Penal Code, whoever attempts to commit suicide will be faced with imprisonment for up to one year or a fine or both.

This man’s case has resulted in The Malaysia Crime Prevention Foundation (MCPF) urging the government to review the existing laws to not criminalise those who attempt suicide.

Malaysiakini reported that MCPF senior vice-chairperson Lee Lam Thye noted that affected persons are not criminals, but may be suffering from mental illnesses, such as depression. He added that these people must be given psychiatric treatment and rehabilitation.

“Criminalising depressed persons or those who are mentally sick is inhumane, unthinkable and unacceptable,”

When faced with someone who wants to end their life, what do you think would be the best course of action? Should we entertain the topic with them? Or should we shut them down, and tell them to stop being dramatic? Or, do we threaten them with punishment to prevent them from considering the idea of suicide in the first place?

If you or anyone you know may be at risk of suicide, ending your life is not a solution. Despite what it feels like right now, things will change, eventually. Please reach out for help. The Befrienders are a free 24-hour counseling service that you can reach at 03-79568145.

You Can Borrow eBooks And Audio Books From The National Library ONLINE, AND FOR FREE!

Published

Voiced by Amazon Polly

Unless you’re above 30, you probably never went to the National Library. It’s OK, we haven’t either. Nevertheless, it turns out that you don’t even have to go there to borrow books now!

Facebook user Jumie Mumie recently shared this news online and we are beyond amazed. According to her, the National Library has had a reading app this whole time, offering up to 14,000 book titles to borrow, all for free!

At first, we were a little sceptical. It cannot really be THAT easy, kan? OR, even if it was that easy, mesti their book selection will be boring. So we thought we’d check it out for ourselves.

Image via PNM

Turns out, they have a lot of books we’d actually like to read! This is a screenshot of just the first page and it doesn’t look too bad, guys. How did we not know about this sooner?!

If you’re interested in borrowing some books, here’s how you can do it.

1. Click here to go to the National Library website.

2. Browse through their book titles until you’ve decided on a book you’d like to borrow. Tip: Head over to “Collections” and choose from “Most Popular ebooks”. From there you can check out different genres too.

Image via PNM

3. Once you’ve decided on a book, click BORROW at the bottom of the title.

Image via PNM

4. You’ll then be redirected to this page:

Image via PNM

From the drop down menu on the left side, choose “Library card number”.

Image via PNM

The website will then ask you for a library card number. According to Jumie, you can type in anything between pnm001 to pnm999.

Image via PNM

We typed in pnm001 and managed to get through, no questions asked! Tip: We don’t recommend that you go with the “Sign in with Facebook” option. Only cause after signing in with Facebook, they still ask you for a library card number before you can borrow a book.

5. The website will then redirect you back to the book selection page and you’ll be prompted to confirm that you’d like to borrow the book. Click on “Borrow”.

Image via PNM

6. You then have the option to download the ebook or just read it directly from your browser.

Image via PNM

It might be important to note that this is the procedure for when you’re visiting the website via a desktop or laptop browser. We suppose it might be a bit different if you’re accessing the book through the National Library’s app. However, we’re sure it will be just as easy and just as free!

In case you’re wondering, yes, you will be sharing those pnm001 – pnm999 library card numbers with other people. A quick check under “history” for the library card number we used showed a tonne of books we’ve never clicked on to borrow.

Image via PNM

We hope the real owner of pnm001 doesn’t mind that we’ve just borrowed a bunch of titles under their card number!

Anyway, we still can’t believe this info isn’t widely known. Can you imagine all the books you could have been reading this whole time?! and for free pulak tu! Which book are you gonna borrow first?

Instagram ‘Heartbroken’ Over Girl Who Posted An IG Poll And Then Took Her Own Life

Published

Instagram executives are heartbroken over the report of a 16-year-old girl Sarawakian girl who had posted a poll on the platform’s stories feature and died by suicide.

According to reports, the poll she posted had asked her followers if she should continue living or if she should die and more than half of respondents voted in favour of her dying.

At the moment, Instagram’s executives said it’s too soon to say if they would take any action against account holders who took part in the poll. The app’s Head of Product, Vishal Shah, told UK Parliament’s MPs that the social media company will be looking into whether they might need to make some changes to their policies.

Image via BBC

“The news is certainly very shocking and deeply saddening,

There are cases… where our responsibility around keeping our community safe and supportive is tested and we are constantly looking at our policies.

We are deeply looking at whether the products, on balance, are matching the expectations that we created them with.”

Meanwhile, the company’s Head of Public Policy, Karina Newton added that the poll posted by the 16-year-old would have violated the company’s guidelines.

Instagram has measures to detect “self-harm thoughts” and will remove certain posts while offering support where appropriate. For example, if a user of the app were to do a search on the word “suicide”, a pop-up would appear offering to put them in touch with organisations that would be able to help.

Image via BBC

However, Vishal Shah said that the way people express mental-health issues is constantly evolving, making it difficult for them to detect it on the platform.

They had been questioned about the matter in Westminster where they were appearing as part of an inquiry by UK’s Parliament’s Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee into immersive and addictive technologies.

Under Malaysian law, suicide is considered as a criminal offence, and those found guilty of encouraging or assisting in the suicide of a minor could be sentenced to death or jailed for up to 20 years.

Local Teenager Dies After 69% Voted For Her To Take Her Life On An IG Story Poll

Depression and suicide isn’t a joke.

After posting a poll up on her Instagram Stories, a 16-year-old decided to take her own life after 69% of her followers encouraged her to.

Image via Social Media Examiner

According to Astro Awani, the teenager died after falling off the third floor of a shop lot in Bandar Baru Batu Kawah in Kuching, Sarawak. She was found around 8pm on Monday night (13 May) by a passerby who reported the incident to the Balai Polis Batu Kawa. After that, her brother and mother also reportedly found her body on their way home from dinner.

The girl had exhibited warning signs through a posted Instagram story poll which wrote “Really Important, Help Me Choose D/L” at 3pm that same day. It appears that D likely meant “die” while L meant “live”. This might have been her last attempt to reach out for support. Sadly, insensitive social media users encouraged her to take her life rather than offering her some help.

Besides that, she also posted a status update on Facebook which wrote “WANNA QUIT (MY) F*CKING LIFE I’M TIRED” and updated her WeChat status telling all her friends how much she loved them before she died.

Suicide is complex and there are usually multiple factors that lead to someone taking their life. The Padawan District Police Chief believes the girl was highly stressed and it was reported that she might have been affected by the fact that her stepfather had married a Vietnamese woman in Singapore and rarely came home. Besides that, other difficulties that she might have been facing are unclear.

Sarawak police had classified the girls passing as sudden death with no criminal motive detected. However, today, Free Malaysia Today reports that Bukit Gelugor MP, Ramkarpal Singh, has encouraged MCMC (Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission) to look into the case.

“How some netizens could have actually condoned this is beyond me,”

“Would the girl still be alive today if the majority of netizens on her Instagram account discouraged her from taking her own life?

“Would she have heeded the advice of netizens to seek professional help had they done so?”

Ramkarpal also cited a case in the US that happened two years ago, where a woman was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter for encouraging her boyfriend to commit suicide.

“Since attempted suicide is an offence in this country, it follows that abetting one to attempt suicide may be, too,”

Last year, the New Straits Times reported that between 2014 and 2018, over 500 suicide cases were reported in Malaysia every year. Out of that number, a total of 1,696 people died while 625 survived suicide attempts. Of the fatal cases, 1,282 were male while 414 were female.

Most people who die from suicide exhibit several warning signs before taking their lives.

  1. Talking about wanting to die
  2. Looking for a way to kill themselves
  3. Talking about feeling hopeless or having no purpose
  4. Talking about feeling trapped or in unbearable pain
  5. Talking about being a burden to others
  6. Increasing the use of alcohol or drugs
  7. Acting anxious, agitated or recklessly
  8. Sleeping too little or too much
  9. Withdrawing or feeling isolated
  10. Showing rage or talking about seeking revenge
  11. Displaying extreme mood swings

If you know someone who is exhibiting these warning signs, you should avoid leaving them alone. You can also help by removing any drugs, alcohol or sharp objects that they could use in a suicide attempt. Then, take them to the emergency room at a hospital or call a medical or mental health professional.

The superhero trend has not died down guys. Last week, we saw Infinity Stones baju melayu buttons and now it appears that you can take your superhero Raya cosplay to even greater heights with the help of local actor Erry Putra.

After going viral last year for his baju melayu design collection that was mocked for looking like breastfeeding apparel for new mothers, the man is back with a whole new idea and it seems that people are loving it.

Erry is jumping on the superhero bandwagon this time around with man of steel inspired baju melayu. The cekak musang baju melayu may appear traditional looking from the front, however from the side and back you’ll see that it actually features a detachable cape!

And the cape isn’t just for show OK! It can also be used as a makeshift prayer mat. Form AND function, people! Guys in this baju are gonna be like “Girl, I ain’t a player, I’m a prayer!”

You might find the whole thing amusing, but Erry is raking in the cash yo. According to his Instagram, each baju costs between RM149 to RM169 and they’re selling like hotcakes!

BRB while we check some of these out for our father. Abah’s gonna look hella cute this Raya!

Netizens Mad Cause They Tak Paham ‘KTHXBYE’ Signboard in Melaka

A signboard bearing the words “KTHXBYE” installed on a pedestrian bridge in Melaka has been ordered to be taken down immediately by the city mayor.

The signboard was installed across the overhead bridge along Lebuh Alor Gajah – Melaka Tengah – Jasin near Al-Azim Mosque in Peringgit, Melaka and belonged to the Mamee Monster snack company.

Apparently, the signboard went viral online cause a bunch of netizens couldn’t figure out what it said.

via GIPHY

Netizens weren’t pleased with the phrase, calling it an improper use of language and only understood by ‘WeChat’ users.

Based on a report by New Straits Times, Melaka city mayor, Mansor Sudin said such signboards cannot be used. Tapi, apesal takleh pakai dia tak cakap la pulak.

“You cannot advertise like that. We have asked them to take it down immediately,”

According to some comments on Facebook, the process for getting a signboard up includes having the text referenced against Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka, before the signboard application can be approved. So many people are questioning how ‘KTHXBYE’ was approved.

Since the kerfuffle, the signboard has finally been taken down and replaced with another advertisement bearing a much more boring basic statement.

Kthxbye.

Malaysians Amazed By How Genting Looks Like A Floating Kingdom In KL Skyline Photo

Immensely popular for its Vegas-style casino and indoor and outdoor theme parks, Genting Highlands is about an hour drive away from KL, perched approximately 1800 metres above sea level.

Although the drastically different weather in Genting makes you feel like you’re far away from the city centre, you’d be surprised at how close Genting actually is to the middle of KL.

This was highlighted on Reddit Malaysia recently when someone posted a photograph they took of the KL skyline with Genting clearly visible in the background.

A full view of KL and genting highlands in the background. (All credits goes to Junhong photography) from r/malaysia

Malaysians were amazed at how beautiful Genting Highland looked, likening it to a sparkling, floating kingdom in the night sky, or a creepy spaceship hovering over KL.

In fact, the photo looks so good that some swore it has to be edited. Genting can’t be that close to KL….this photograph isn’t to scale…or is it?

Well, we did some digging and actually, last week another Malaysian posted a similar photograph on Instagram. This photograph was taken from a further distance – Bukit Jalil to be exact (yes! Apparently you can see Genting from Bukit Jalil!) and really puts the location of Genting, relative to KL, into perspective.

Isn’t that insane? We’ve never noticed you could see Genting Highlands from KL. And we definitely had no idea you could see it all the way from Bukit Jalil! This really puts into perspective how massive Goh Tong projects actually are.

So did we.

Malaysia Has Appointed Our First Female Chief Justice!

Malaysia has appointed our first female chief justice!

Last Thursday (2 May) Federal court Judge Datuk Tengku Maimun Tuan Mat was appointed as the top judge of the country, replacing retiring chief justice Tan Sri Richard Malanjum.

Malanjum was the first east Malaysian and first Sabah Bumiputera to be appointed as chief justice. He retired last month after reaching 66 years old, aka the retirement age for judges. He then served an additional six-month extension allowed under the Federal Constitution.

Image via Malay Mail

Tengku Maimun’s appointment comes just a few days shy of PH’s one-year anniversary of being in government. At 59 years old, she will be able to serve for some years before she too reaches the retirement age for judges. Based on the judiciary’s website, Tengku Maimun started her legal career in October 2006 as a judicial commissioner at the High Court in KL.

Since Malaysia was founded in 1963, all 15 judges that held Malaysia’s top judicial post have been men. Tengku Maimun is the first woman to hold the post and joins several other powerful women who have made history in Malaysia.

An obvious example would be Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, who became the first female Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia when PH came into power.

Image via EdgeProp

Besides Wan Azizah, another inspiring Malaysian woman is Datuk Nor Shamsiah Mohd Yunus. She is the second woman to be appointed as the Governor of Bank Negara, after Tan Sri Zeti Akhtar Aziz. A couple of months after being promoted to the position, she was named Central Banker of the Year 2019 for Asia-Pacific by UK finance magazine, The Banker.

Image via Mole.my

“Nor Shamsiah came into the central bank after being integral to the 1MDB investigations that shook Malaysia in 2017. 

With this background, she has been urging greater transparency in banking, and is seen as being a solid choice in pushing for stronger regulations and accountability in the country’s banking system,”

Nenney Shushaidah Shamsuddin is one of the first female Syariah High Court judges in Malaysia and she was also listed in BBC’s 100 Inspirational Women of 2018. Nenney was the only Malaysian to be named on the list.

“Nenney fights for the protection of Muslim women in her courts and wants to change the negative perceptions of Sharia law,”

We’re so proud of all these women for their achievements! Higher, faster, further!

Yes, Even During Ramadhan Also Waze Got Your Back With Traffic Jams

Sure, traffic is bad during festive seasons, be it CNY, Christmas, Hari Raya, Deepavali or Thaipusam. But have you ever endured Ramadhan traffic?

Despite Ramadhan being the month of patience and generosity, getting stuck in traffic after a full day of fasting is gonna be tough on anyone. And the last thing anyone wants is to be stuck in traffic while you’re trying to get home to buka puasa together with your family.

So, as usual, Waze has got you covered! Be it commuting to and from work, or just running errands throughout the day. Here are all the best and worse times to be on the road during the fasting month!

The Ramadhan Balik Kerja Rush Hour

According to Waze, the drive to work will have heavier traffic compared to the drive home. Traffic is expected to be the worst between 8am and 11am and should only subside around 3pm on weekdays.

Best and Worst Time To Get Fast Food

Image via Waze

Mengidam some burger and fries? Well, based on Waze, anytime after 9pm and especially between 12am and 5am is a good time to get some fast food grub. In contrast, the worst time to get that cheeseburger is between 4pm and 7pm cause people are most likely gonna be having their buka puasa there during this time period.

Best and Worst Times To Go Jalan Jalan At The Mall

Image via Waze

Shopping centers are gonna be consistently crowded between 12pm and 4pm. Ye la, tengah puasa-puasa ni mesti nak sit in the aircond kan. Malls will be absolutely packed from 5pm to 6pm. If you need to get some shopping done, the best time to go would be after 7pm.

Best and Worst Times To Pergi Bank

Image via Waze

Based on Waze, the traffic on roads going towards banks in Malaysia will fluctuate throughout the day during Ramadhan. From 7am to 9am, there will be a steady increase of people going to withdraw cash at ATMs. However, traffic will start to get worse after the bank officially opens at 9.30am and will become jam packed between 12pm and 3pm. If you’re planning to head to the bank just to cucuk duit, the best time to go would be after 4pm.

Best and Worse Times To Isi Minyak

Image via Waze

If you visit petrol stations before 8am, you’ll likely see little to no queues at any of the pumps. Then, petrol stations will steadily get more and more packed from 9am onwards. You’ll definitely want to avoid petrol stations between 3pm and 6pm cause that’s when most people are gonna go isi minyak on their way home from work. If you really need fuel in the evening, best time to go would be after 7pm after semua orang dah balik rumah bukak puasa.

Happy fasting to those who will be and happy driving to everyone else!

Malaysian Doctor In Australia Kantoi For Being Sexist and Offensive, Kena Gantung

A Malaysian man working in Australia is famous! But for the worse reasons…

Dr Christopher Lee Kwan Chen is in a lot of trouble with the Australian Medical Board and the police there due to his keyboard warrior antics.

Image via Wee Hing Thong

The emergency doctor is very active on a forum in Singapore, regularly giving out medical advice and his opinions on Ask Me Anything (a.k.a AMA) threads. However, it was found out that some of his comments on the forum include statements like “some women deserve to be raped” and “she needs to be abandoned in India and repeatedly raped in order for her to wake up her idea.” He has also hinted at sharing the nude photos of a woman who criticized him!

Besides that, Dr Christopher talked smack about Chinese and Singaporean women, as well as Indonesians and Filipinos. Generally, he seems to dislike everyone. Including his wife. (Yes, he’s married.)

Image via FMT

Christopher has posted photos of his wife on the forum, boasted about their sex life and said the only way they will separate is if it ends in murder. Oh, and BTW, he also threatened to kick her down the stairs to force an abortion if she ever gets pregnant. How charming. #EyeRoll

He has always bragged that he will not get into trouble with Malaysian or Australian authorities because, according to him, he’s only posting these things on a Singaporean forum. But man, was he wrong!

Image via Yahoo News

Dr Lee has been suspended from work for 6 weeks and the Australian police are now investigating him. Not that he minds. Shortly after he was banned, he went back to the forum to say “We’ll see who has the last laugh”.

While he seems to be unremorseful, Malaysians are livid. Many of them are angry at the doctor for soiling Malaysia’s name in Australia. While others are worried he’ll return and practice here instead.

At this point, it’s still unclear what charges he’ll be facing exactly, but he’s not allowed to work anywhere in Australia until June. On top of that, there’s an online petition calling for his medical license to be revoked, especially since he posted photographs of medical procedures he performed and patient x-rays online.

Regardless of how this whole mess ends, we really hope the doctor will learn his lesson. And dear Malaysians, always remember that we have a responsibility to uphold our country’s image. So jangan buat benda bodoh kat rumah orang lain. K?
