Nightmare Maid

Posted by jtsmyth8 on May 17, 2010

Imagine this nightmare. You hire an Indonesian maid to take care of your 8 month old baby only to have your trust betrayed. The maid threatened to kill the baby if not sent home by the employer. Nurhasanah had requested 3 times to be sent home and eventually reached a desperate point when she held a pair of scissors up to the baby. The victim drove to the airport immediately and purchased a plane ticket for the maid. The police were called and justice served. 2 years in jail. (link)

Do You Believe Him?

Posted by jtsmyth8 on December 24, 2009

According to Mark Chow Yee Sze he was just trying to wake up the female victim and not molest her. Hmm, so that explains the video … doesn’t it? So the question is who do you believe? I don’t know about you but if I were trying to wake someone up I wouldn’t be grabbing their chest. A normal person would grab the unconscious person by the arms or shoulders and give them a shake, not reach under their shirt and feel them up.

Mark Chow Yee Sze is a 29 year old former Singapore teen model, television show host and actor, and is currently single and unemployed. A 1 time Mr Teenage Singapore and deemed an eligible bachelor in and issue of Cleo magazine 2001.

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 Quite ridiculous in this day in age, however many still cling to outdated religious beliefs.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)

Cheating Bastards

Posted by jtsmyth8 on June 15, 2009

Surprise, surprise. Students, teachers, and others 34 in all arrested for cheating on the state exam. These students are competing for more than just test scores, they are competing for a way of life. Ace the exam and you live amongst the elite and corrupt. Nice cushy state jobs where you can start accepting bribes right away. I’m sure it’s not the first time nor will it be the last.

Have no fear. Those who fail miserably can go on to a life of additional cheating. Take for example the Chinese anti-porn software company. All you need to do is copy someone else. Steal the software, copy the code, and then re-brand it and sell it as your own. Then bribe your buddy in the government to make it mandatory on every pc sold. Then sit back and count the money. Hopefully the Americans won’t notice … oops.

Well there’s always the military.
