PARENTS are irked by the presence of skimpily-dressed masseuses at Singapore’s Bukit Timah Shopping Centre, who allegedly offer sex services to students of a tuition centre in the mall.

China Press reported that a 45-year-old man said he was approached by a masseuse while he was looking for the tuition centre for his 11-year-old son.

“They would provide a massage but inside the parlour, offer sex services to the customer. The ‘special’ service would cost S$50 to S$150 (RM150 to RM450),” he said.

Students have to pass by the massage parlours en route to the toilet.

> Dearest Anita, the biopic of the late Hong Kong singer-actress Anita Mui, won four awards at the Seventh Annual Vancouver Chinese Film Festival, garnering awards for Best Cantonese Film, Best Director for Clifton Ko and Pako Leung, Best Actress for Myolie Wu and People’s Choice for Sonija Kwok, Sin Chew Daily reported.

The film festival was held at Michael J Fox Theatre in Canada.

Wu, who plays a fan of Mui in the movie, said she did not expect to win the award.

“I feel blessed and happy to have won but most importantly, the film is being screened in other countries,” she said.
