THE licence plate number WWW 1 will likely set a record as the most expensive vehicle registration number in Malaysia. The price could hit RM500,000 when bidding starts on April 30, according to Kosmo.

Currently, the most expensive registration number is MCA 1 sold for RM300,000 in 2010.
“Those who wish to secure registration numbers of between WWW 1 and WWW 9999 should submit tenders, as they will be selling like hot cakes,'' Nadzri said.
The department also projected that “hot numbers” WWW 3, WWW 8, WWW 9, WWW 11, WWW 33 and WWW 88 could be sold for more than RM10,000 each.
> Sexy young artiste Syatilla Melvin confessed to starring in a “hot” 1.47-minute video clip, reported Mingguan Malaysia.
The 21-year-old said friends shot the video for a coursework that involved video recording.
“Why should I deny its existence when I am the person in the video?'' she said, adding she did “not want to live in denial”.
Syatilla, who is fondly known as Tilla, said she believed in honesty.
“I am not upset, but rather disappointed over the negative comments from people who have watched the clip,” she said.
In the video, Syatilla dances provocatively to Doris Day's 1960s hit Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps.
