NINE siblings in Johor Baru are desperate for the return of their 43-year-old father who left them six years ago, Harian Metro reported.
“Come and see us papa, if only to help Nurmujiha and Nur Kasih get their birth certificates,” Norallysya Attika Abdul Mutalib, 17, pleaded.
She said that she was not able to register her younger siblings at the National Registration Department as her father was not present.
Abdul Mutalib Mat Desa’s disappearance had forced their mother to be the sole breadwinner until her death due to breast cancer.
According to Norallysya, they had been getting by with the help of relatives from her mother’s side as well as monthly financial aid from the Welfare Department.
> Muhammad Nurrahman Mansor, 14, may be a little slow in his studies, but he certainly is heading somewhere with his egg-hatching device made from recycled materials, the daily also reported.
“I nearly gave up when I failed on my first try. But thanks to the encouragement from my parents and teachers, I gave it another try,” the OKU student said,
It took him another month before he finally succeeded.
The innovation had not only earned him the title of tauke ayam, but also the attention from the public, District Education Office and Kerian Department of Veterinary Services, the report said.
Thanks to his teachers and You-Tube, he was reportedly able to build the device that is capable of hatching 60 to 80 chicken eggs at one time.
His device made him a sought-after figure as villagers would hire him to hatch the eggs or buy hatchlings from him, the report stated.
> A company manager was shocked to learn that his wife’s car had been cloned and used to commit break-ins in their neighbourhood in Puchong, reported Sinar Harian.
When Lai Heng Kee, 52, was told that his wife’s car was suspected to be involved in a break-in, he immediately checked the CCTV footage of their neighbourhood entrance, the report said.
“It looked like my wife’s vehicle with a similar colour, but the model is different,” he said, adding that he immediately lodged a police report for fear of being accused of the crime.
Kinrara assemblyman Ng Sze Han reportedly said that the suspects are believed to be foreigners judging from their appearance on the CCTV footage and called for swift police action.
