A SENIOR citizen died of a heart attack soon after having sex with a woman in a Muar hotel, Harian Metro reported.
A source said the 66-year-old had gone to a budget hotel in Jalan Meriam at 10am to meet a woman.

The man lived in the Kampung Baru Kim Kee Estate in Bukit Pasir. A bachelor, he lived alone and frequented the hotel for sex.

> An express bus passenger had to endure nine hours of discomfort during a trip from Alor Setar to Temerloh after being bitten by bedbugs, a Sinar Harian report said.
Agos Salim Mohd Som, 32, said he had been in the bus only 10 minutes when the bugs started biting.
“I felt bites on my back. At first, I thought it was mosquitoes but after several more bites, I took off my shirt and found that they were bed bugs,” he said.
He was with a friend on their way back on Sunday after judging a mountain bike competition in Kedah.
Agos said six other passengers in the bus were bitten as well.
He said the driver stopped the bus at a rest area and promptly sprayed insecticide everywhere. It was to no avail, with more passengers complaining of the bites.
Agos lodged a report at the Temerloh police station two days later.
