Sexy ads banned

Posted by jtsmyth8 on July 2, 2008

That’s ok. I already found my girlfriend this way. I don’t need the ads anymore. hehe

“Sleazy advertisements with suggestive pictures promoting matchmaking services will no longer grace the main pages of newspapers.

Such ads can only appear in text, in the classified section of print publications. And they cannot guarantee marriages.

Dating agencies accredited with the Ministry of Community, Youth and Sports, however, can continue to run ads with visuals in the main pages of a print publication.” (story)

Data saved by local recovery company

Posted by jtsmyth8 on May 29, 2008

Every time I read a story like this I turn on my external drive and back up my data. I’ve had 1 hard drive crash on me and that was enough. Stories like this just remind me to back up my important files. Email, photos, music, documents. You never know.

“Joe Nguyen was crushed when his home computer crashed for no apparent reason in 2005.

Desperate, he searched the Web for ideas to rescue his fond memories – all stored in the PC. He got one step closer when he found CBL Data Recovery Technologies, which specialises in retrieving data from mangled storage media.

‘But I was not confident that my files could be recovered,’ said the 36-year-old American citizen who has been living in Singapore for 15 years.

The service – at $700 – wasn’t cheap either.

Four days after dropping off his PC at CBL’s premises at Changi Business Park, he received a call to collect a DVD that contained all the information he thought he had lost – 1GB in total.” (story)

Doctor caught having sex on camera

Posted by jtsmyth8 on May 22, 2008

Is anyone surprised? I bet my doctor routinely puts his balls on my forehead and takes pictures when he sedates me for a routine checkup. I always wondered why my ass was sore.

“A doctor had sex with a clinic assistant in his consultant room after the clinic closed in December 2006, unaware they were being watched by a spy camera.

Dr Tam Tak Chuen was shocked to find pictures of the sex tryst shown by his partners, Dr Khairul Abdul Rahman and Dr Ashraff Shamsuddin Eilyass, at a business meeting on March 4 2006.” (story)

Posted by jtsmyth8 on February 22, 2008

HK singer and actor Edison Chen said on Thursday that he would step away from the Hong Kong entertainment industry, in his first public appearance since a nude picture scandal broke in January.’I’ve decided to step away from the Hong Kong entertainment industry,’ Chen told reporters, while apologising to Hong Kong for the scandal which has drawn blanket media coverage over several weeks.

He said in a brief statement he would fulfil existing commitments before stepping down ‘indefinitely’.

Beijing police vow action on HK nude photos
Meanwhile in Beijing, Chinese police have vowed to detain anyone caught distributing nude photos of several Hong Kong pop stars that were recently posted on the Internet, state media reported on Thursday.

Hong Kong police said some 1,300 private shots of the celebrities had been stolen by the staff of a computer repair shop from a faulty laptop believed to belong to Canadian-born singer and actor Edison Chen.

The scandal has caused a media frenzy and feverish downloading and sharing of the photos. Hong Kong police have made several arrests and the investigation is ongoing. (story)

Maggie Q linked to Edison Chen sex scandal

Posted by jtsmyth8 on February 15, 2008

Wow! More and more dirt keeps coming out. I guess HK’s little hollywood isn’t so clean after all. Way too much is being made of this, I mean, come on! They are people too! They have sex and make home sex videos too, just like you and me. I think the we’ve just thrown them up on a pedestal because they are movie stars and we secretly enjoy tearing them down to our level. Kinda sad really, not them, us.

Excellent source for more information for your perverted minds Hollywood Grind

“Yet more female celebrities have been sucked into the scandal with some of the latest pictures released. Here’s one of the very exotic looking Maggie Q (李美琪). Apparently though, this was just a promotional picture for Edison Chen’s clothing line and may have nothing to do with his sexcapades. Really, there’s nothing too scandalous about the pic anyway. Nevertheless, a sex tape involving Edison Chen and Maggie Q is said to be circulating in Hong Kong

A series of pictures containing a woman bearing a striking resemblance to Taiwanese singer Jolin Tsai (蔡依林) in lingerie is also making the rounds. However, internet sleuths have worked out that this is not Jolin Tsai but one of her wannabes. She also does not have a tattoo on her left arm like Jolin does” (link)
