Even stars need a cold shower sometimes


UNABLE to stand the heat in Malaysia, Hong Kong singer Eason Chan could not wait to rush back to his hotel for a cold shower right after his concert on Friday, reported Sin Chew Daily.

It was just the first day of his “Fear and Dreams” concert tour at Stadium Bukit Jalil from May 12-14.

When the fans shouted for an encore, the 48-year-old singer pleaded for them to let him go take a cold shower.

“I want to go back to take a cold shower,” Chan said at the end of his set.

Later that day, the singer posted a video of him going into the bathroom.

“Ah, so hot! Going to take a shower! That is all! Bye-bye! Going to take a cold shower!” he said.

> The daily also reported that a secondary school in Guizhou, China, has come under fire for submerging the cellphones confiscated from the students in water as a form of punishment.

It was reported that the students were not allowed to bring cellphones into the school compound.

According to an employee of the private school, a teacher had privately contacted parents and obtained their permission to perform the punishment.

However, Internet users have criticised the punishment as being “too harsh”.

“Just confiscate them. There is no need to destroy them,” one of them wrote.

Later, the school deemed the punishment inappropriate and said it would take disciplinary action against the teacher while agreeing to compensate the students for their damaged phones.
