FANCY a bath with a bikini-clad woman behind closed doors?
For between RM100 and RM150, a reflexology centre in Sri Petaling, Kuala Lumpur, has been offering lecherous men this pleasure with either a Vietnamese or a “China Doll”.
Anti-vice officers from the Bukit Aman D7 (secret societies, gambling and vice) division detained 18 women, aged 19 to 25, in a 1am raid on the premises on Wednesday, Harian Metro reported.
Four of them were Chinese nationals while the rest were Vietnamese. All were caught while bathing their male customers.
The centre operated between 8pm and 2am daily.
> The Education Ministry has started its probe into a video clip that showed a special education teacher losing his temper and shouting at his pupils and the school principal, Kosmo! reported.
The 15-second clip, which has been circulating on Facebook and YouTube since July 6, shows the teacher shouting at his pupils and angrily arguing with the principal of the primary school in Temerloh, Pahang.
Deputy Education Minister II P. Kamalanathan said the teacher’s attitude was shocking and the ministry considered it a serious matter.
“We will call those involved and will not hesitate to take the appropriate action once the investigation is completed,” he said after officiating at the ground-breaking ceremony of SK Tamil Ayer Itam in Jempol, Negri Sembilan, on Wednesday.
> Four children and a 33-year-old man became victims of alleged food poisoning after a meal of bubur lambuk (spicy porridge) early Wednesday.
Taman Raja Muda resident Azmi Abdul Azis, the adult victim, said he bought the meal from a Ramadan bazaar for two of his children, aged two and five.
The victims have all been warded at the Tanjung Karang Hospital after suffering from a bout of diarrhoea, dehydration and vomiting after eating the meal to break their fast on Tuesday evening.
Hospital director Dr Mohd Zamri Saim said the five patients had been placed at medium-risk wards for observation.
District health officers took leftovers of the porridge to determine if it was contaminated when it was sold to the public.
