HONG Kong singer and TV chef Nicholas Tse (pic) will be in Malaysia on Jan 23 to compete with Canadian celebrity chef David Rocco in a cooking production, Celebrity Chef: East vs West.
Sin Chew Daily reported that the two celebrity chefs will travel across Asia in the first season of the original series Celebrity Chef: East vs West – a culinary competition production launched by Fox Networks Group Asia.
The Chinese daily reported the crew will shoot at two locations under Sunway Group, namely Sunway City and The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat in Ipoh.
The show will see Tse representing the East and Rocco representing the West, competing to prepare a native dish selected by a local chef.
> Sin Chew Daily also reported that a notice disallowing pets, including guide dogs, at the Sultan Abdul Halim Airport in Alor Setar has drawn the ire of netizens.
A netizen, who spotted the notice, questioned the move as it would cause inconvenience to the visually-impaired.
A reporter from a Chinese daily visited the airport and saw four notices stating “No Pets and Guide Dogs Allowed” pasted at the departure and arrival halls.
A spokesman said airports in Malaysia started disallowing pets, including dogs, since 2016.
However, she said the visually-impaired who depend on guide dogs could make an early arrangement by applying and liaising with the airport authority and the airline concerned.
> A 24-year-old masseuse from Ipoh alleged she was molested by a customer in a massage parlour at Sims Avenue in Singapore, Oriental Daily reported.
The woman said the customer, in his 60s, pinched her buttocks, hugged her and touched her breasts and private parts at 8pm on Jan 6. The victim also claimed that she was asked to masturbate him.
He told her that “he can do whatever he wants as he is rich”.
She said the man later offered to pay her S$500 (RM1,497).
He even knelt to seek an apology for his actions, but she was angry and decided to lodge a police report.
The victim said she married her Singaporean boyfriend two years ago but they separated in July last year.
She started working at the massage parlour as a receptionist in late December but was asked to massage customers when the outlet was short of manpower.
