CHINESE action star Jackie Chan has been awarded with two Guinness World Record certificates for his new film Chinese Zodiac.

Sin Chew Daily reported that he was awarded the “Most Stunts Performed by a Living Actor” and “Most Credits in a Movie”.

Chan, who has been in showbiz for over 50 years, said after receiving the awards in Shanghai on Tuesday:

“I've been very particular about portraying my own stunts ever since my first film.”

> China Press reported that three friends from Pahang became instant millionaires when they won RM3.6mil in the Da Ma Cai 6D jackpot combination, using the numbers of a summons ticket.

The three business partners said they initially had a tough time picking the numbers to bet on when someone suggested they use the number of the summons ticket, which one of them received.

They are now planning for a holiday trip to China.

The daily also reported that 121212 (Dec 12, 2012) would be an ideal date to give birth, especially for those who yearn for daughters.

According to feng shui master Woo De Rong, the date could be considered as one of the most auspicious days in the lunar calendar for 60 years.

He said babies born on that day would enjoy good fortune, especially for girls who would have the fate of a “phoenix”.

In numerology, Woo said each number had its unique character and meaning. The numeral “2”, for example, represents intelligence.

The best time to give birth on that day would be between 9.30am and 11.30am and from 1.30pm to 3.30pm, he said.
