Worst Kept Secret?

Posted by jtsmyth8 on August 29, 2009

So Andy Lau has come clean, sort of. The public has finally gotten some photographic proof that Andy is attached to Carol Chu. Spotted in Malaysia at the airport paparazzi finally managed to snap a picture of the 2 together, after years of HK photographers failing miserably. He did not admit nor deny their relationship but we all know better. I’m not sure why he would spend so long keeping the rumors at bay while many other stars have gone public. You have a man who has gone to great lengths to keep his private life private.

Beer gets model arrested

Posted by jtsmyth8 on August 19, 2009

That’s all it took, one beer. A model (Muslim) was sentenced to 6 strokes by cane for having a beer at a bar in Pahang (Singapore). Under Islamic law she will be the first woman in Malaysia to be caned. Kartika Sari Dewi Shukarno, 32, pleaded guilty to the charges and was also fined 1,414 dollars. That’s one expensive beer! I hope it was the best beer ever!

The brave mother of 2 returned to Perak after learning of the warrant out for her arrest. Quite ridiculous in this day in age, however many still cling to outdated religious beliefs. Who am I to question what is right for others to believe? However it should be important to note that we used to stone people we thought were witches. At what point do we revisit time honored traditions and beliefs? (link)
