IU wows fans with Malay words of love


“SANGAT bagus”, “Saya sangat gembira” and “Terima kasih, sayang” (Very good; I’m very happy; thank you, love)” were some of the Malay phrases uttered by South Korean singer IU while performing at IU H.E.R World Tour Concert at Axiata Arena, Kuala Lumpur on June 8 and 9.

Oriental Daily reported that the 31-year-old artiste even playfully renamed her popular hit Blueming as Kuala Lueming, combining Kuala Lumpur with the song’s title during her performance in the capital city.

IU, whose real name is Lee Ji-eun, also performed several other well-known songs of hers, including Bbibbi, Obliviate and Celebrity, which were met with excitement and loud cheers from Uaena – the moniker given to IU’s fanbase.

Two lucky fans were thrilled when they were selected to go on stage and receive sunflowers and collectibles from IU.

> A 29-year-old man in Wenzhou, China, was found dead in an Internet cafe, as cafe staff had mistaken him for dozing off a day earlier, China Press reported.

The cafe owner said his employees did not disturb the man as they thought he was sleeping.

According to the police, the man had been in the cafe from June 1 to 3, only leaving once in the morning on June 2 to buy breakfast.

He was found sitting on a sofa by the cafe employees with his head down on June 3.

Despite attempts to wake him, he did not respond.

The police classified the case as sudden death.

The man, who was a regular customer, visited the cafe almost every other day for five to six hours and appeared to be in good health.

The cafe owner added that it is common for people to sleep in Internet cafes and they could not chase them away as some customers can turn aggressive if disturbed while sleeping.

> Have you accidentally fallen into a lake or river and did not know how to swim? Well, just lie flat.

China Press reported that a female tourist, who accidentally fell into the water while visiting West Lake in Hangzhou, China, decided to “lie flat” to stay afloat.

The woman remained calm despite not knowing how to swim and managed to remain afloat for three minutes before rescuers arrived by boat.

Two men jumped into the water and brought her out of the lake.

A video of the incident made its rounds on social media.

In the video’s comments section, a professional diving instructor shared that the woman’s self-rescue method was textbook, demonstrating that even non-swimmers who accidentally fall into water can float on their backs like her while waiting to be saved.
