THE Consumers Association of Penang (CAP) hit out at a local ice-cream manufacturer for using children to launch their new product, reported Malaysia Nanban

CAP president S.M. Mohd Idris questioned the moral responsibility of the manufacturer for using ice-cream to promote love life.  

CAP said the ice-cream came in a packet with a love manual or the A to Z of how to be a great lover and a pair of love dices to spice up the love game. 

On the foreign front, the daily said India’s leading English daily Hindustan Times carried a full-page story on tourist destinations in Malaysia. 

Bollywood actor Vikram Saluja, a former national tennis player who visited Malaysia about eight years ago, wrote the article. 

He visited the country last year during the International Indian Film Festival held at Genting Highlands. 

Tamil Nesan front-paged the fire in Sungai Buloh, Selangor, where five Indian families lost their homes and belongings. 

It said the incident on Wednesday made about 40 people homeless. 

The daily also highlighted the plight of a widow and her five children living in a house on the verge of collapse in Puchong, Selangor.  

National Unity and Community Development Ministry parliamentary secretary Datuk S. Veerasingam promised to help them get a low-cost house.
