Farmer Md Bakri Bahri, 43, was elated when he discovered a Rafflesia flower in his farm, located within the Royal Belum State Park area in Perak, as he was clearing up the bush last week. His discovery has since been given the name Rafflesia Batu Kurau, and is expected to attract visitors.

> More man-made reefs to boost ecotourism
The Marine Park Department will be spending RM250,000 to sink five ships as artificial reefs this year to preserve marine parks in Terengganu, Kedah and Johor. Its deputy director-general Kamaruddin Ibrahim said the move was a joint effort with the Tourism Ministry to help boost ecotourism. A vessel of the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA), which was purposely sunk as man-made artificial reef in Tioman Island in 2012, had successfully attracted 7,200 tourists last year. There are a total of 42 marine parks in Malaysia, of which 13 of them are located in Terengganu, Pahang (9), Johor (13), Kedah (4) and Labuan (3). 

> Man caught with 40 undergarments
A man was found with more than 40 pieces of underwears at his home by a victim, who had earlier lured him to steal from his home again. The victim from Bentong, Pahang, installed a closed circuit television camera (CCTV) system at his home and waited for the man who turned up at about 1am on Sunday.
