A HONG KONG tabloid reported that several guests attending artiste Kenny Bee’s wedding in Bali were unhappy after being asked to pay for their air tickets and hotel stay.
In the report published by China Press, each guest was said to have forked out at least RM8,000 for accommodation.
One of them reportedly refused to pay and decided to stay elsewhere as a “protest” over the arrangement.
Kenny Bee, 62, splurged about RM2mil to marry his long-time girlfriend Fan-jiang Su-zhen in Bali on Aug 25.
According to the daily, the guests received invitation cards two months before the big day.
However, they were told to pay for their hotel stay upon receiving the invitation.
Meanwhile, Kenny Bee issued an apology to his wife over the report.
“I am sorry that you have to go through all this. A fabricated report won’t hurt us,” the daily quoted him as saying.
Nevertheless, Kenny Bee said he would donate his “red packet” money (customary monetary gift) to the Amyotropic Lateral Sclerolis (ALS) association.
> Two male passengers “layered” themselves with clothes to avoid paying A$130 (RM382) for exceeding baggage limits at the Changi airport in Singapore, reported Kwong Wah Yit Poh.
A picture showing the two with clothes and caps all over the body went viral over social media.
The two were said to be on their way to Sydney. When told that their luggage was overweight, they immediately opened it and put on the clothes.
They managed to pass through Customs and the border protection counter upon arrival in Sydney.
