A MAN bought 99 units of iPhone 6 to express his love to his colleague in Guangzhou, China, Guang Ming Daily reported.
He used the iPhones to create a heart shape before revealing his love to the woman recently.
The man said he had used his two years of savings to buy the iPhones for the woman.
However, the woman did not accept his love, it reported.
> The daily also reported that the first 200 customers in a shopping mall in Hubei, China, could take any clothes worth RMB1,000 (about RM546) for free if they come only in their undergarments.
The event attracted quite a number of customers who queued up early to take part in the event held recently.
The mall organised the event in conjunction with Singles Day, which falls on Nov 11 for the young Chinese to celebrate their bachelor life.
A couple said they found the event interesting as so many people shopped only in their inner wear.
However, some people slammed the mall for having organised such an event.
> All major Chinese dailies also reported that the heads of the two prominent Chinese education groups acted like strangers at the Johor Chinese Schools Committees Association (Dong Lian Hui) anniversary dinner.
The United Chinese School Teachers’ Association (Jiao Zong) chairman Ong Chiow Chuen and United Chinese School Committees’ Association of Malaysia (Dong Zong) chairman Yap Sin Tian did not make eye contact or talk to each other at the anniversary dinner in Johor Baru on Sunday, Nanyang Siang Pau reported.
The two groups have traditionally worked under the umbrella body of Dong Jiao Zong.
Ong, in his speech, said he missed those days when Jiao Zong worked closely with Dong Zong under the leadership of former Dong Zong chairman Quek Suan Hiang.
When it came to Yap’s turn to give a speech, he said many Chinese guilds and associations, as well as grassroots members, still supported the current leadership of Dong Zong.
