A STREET in Johor Baru has become a “red-light district” where girls from Vietnam and China look for “clients” at several coffeeshops there, China Press reported.

Their targets were Singaporean retirees. The daily reported that the girls, dressed in sexy outfits, would approach the “uncles” at the coffeeshops.

A Singaporean, known only as Chen, told the daily that his father, who is in his 70s, had been frequenting the area to look for the girls.

Chen said his siblings found out about it when their father started asking them for more money.

“We hope the Malaysian police will take action,” Chen said.

Another Singaporean, who declined to be named, said he and his friends would come over to Johor Baru to look for the girls at least once a week.

They would spend between RM80 and RM150 on the girls depending on their age and appearance.

> The daily also reported that a Chinese primary school in Skudai, Johor, allegedly asked the parents of new pupils to donate RM200 to the school.

Some parents posted the notice on social media, claiming it was indirectly forcing them to donate to help upgrade basic amenities in the school.

The school’s board of directors responded in a statement that the donation was not compulsoty.

It said there was a misunderstanding caused by the words used in the notice.

> Guang Ming Daily reported that Taiwanese pop star Ella Chen, who married Malaysian businessman Alvin Lai, wished to have a baby girl.

Chen, 36, who has a three-month-old baby boy, said she would have to wait for sometime before planning for another baby.

The singer and Lai took their first child back to Melaka to visit the baby’s grandparents recently.
