A CONDOM manufacturer in Bangkok, Thailand, is producing durian-flavoured condoms to cater to the Asian market, reported China Press.
A spokesman said they had started the production of the condom and believed it would be a hit among Asians.
The company is currently producing two billion condoms yearly.
This is expected to increase to five billion when it opens a new factory.
> A 53-year-old woman lost RM60,000 and jewellery worth thousands of ringgit to three female Chinese nationals in Butterworth, Penang, Kwong Wah Yit Poh reported.
The victim, known only as Ang, claimed she became disoriented after meeting them near a market on June 16.
The women told Ang that bad luck would befall her as she had stepped on roadside offerings meant for the dead when she was pregnant previously.
They claimed she could lose her loved ones and would be paralysed below the waist.
However, they told Ang they could conduct a ritual which could help her avoid any misfortune.
She then went home to retrieve her jewellery and withdrew money from the bank.
She handed the money and jewellery to the women, who kept the items inside a black plastic bag and started chanting.
When Ang was given the plastic bag later, she was shocked to discover that it only contained three packets of milk and a packet of sugar.
