Angry man bites sister’s neck at wedding

Upset at being insulted by his sister when he asked for money, a 30-year-old man in Pasir Panjang, Terengganu, bit her neck in front of guests during her wedding, reported Harian Metro.

The man also threatened the 27-year-old woman with a hoe and a knife.

According to sources, the woman had not entertained her brother's request for RM50 but finally gave in and threw the money on the side of the road during the incident on Friday.

The man then bit her neck before fleeing without taking the money.

The sister later lodged a report at the Kuala Terengganu police station.

The man was detained a few hours after the incident.

Hong Kong man finds he is a woman after doctor visit

A 66-year-old who lived his whole life as a man was given a surprising diagnosis after visiting the doctor in Hong Kong with a swollen abdomen -- he was a woman.

Doctors realised the patient was female after they found the swelling came from a large cyst on an ovary, the Hong Kong Medical Journal reported.

The condition was the result of two rare genetic disorders.

The subject had Turner syndrome, which affects girls and women and results from a problem with the chromosomes, with characteristics including infertility and short stature.

But he also had congenital adrenal hyperplasia, increasing male hormones and making the patient, who had a beard and a "micropenis", appear like a man.

"Were it not due to the huge ovarian cyst, his intriguing medical condition might never have been exposed," seven doctors from two of the city's hospitals wrote in the study published Monday.

The 1.37 meters (4.5 feet) tall patient, who grew up as an orphan, was found to have no testes, a history of urinary leakage since childhood, and stopped growing after puberty at the age of 10.

The doctors said there have been only six cases where both genetic disorders have been reported in medical literature. Turner Syndrome on its own affects only one in 2,500 to 3,000 females.

The Vietnam-born Chinese patient decided to continue "perceiving himself as having a male gender with the possible need of testosterone replacement," according to the journal.

Most men have a X and a Y chromosome and most women have a pair of X chromosomes. But people with Turner Syndrome tend to have only one X chromosome or are missing part of their second X chromosome.

A 25-year-old entrepreneur in Singapore spent RM19,200 to kiss Chinese nude model Gan Lulu for five seconds, reported major local dailies.

The man was among 500 people who turned up at a club in the republic to have an up-close and personal meeting with the 27-year-old busty model last Saturday.

He bought 50 bottles of liquor at the club that night just for a chance to pucker up with Gan.

“I was very excited at first but then I got a little shy and dared not look her in the eye,” he told the New Paper.

Another 21-year-old student spent RM4,800 to play a game with the model.

Gan, who is known for her revealing outfits, shot to fame in 2011 when her mother Lei Bingxia, 50, filmed her taking a shower and uploaded the clip online.

Woman detained for allegedly insulting Agong on Facebook

A woman has been detained for allegedly insulting Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Abdul Halim Mu'adzam Shah on Facebook.

A Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) spokesperson said the woman was detained by the commission with the assistance of the Bukit Aman Commercial Crime Investigations Department Tuesday morning.

"We have successfully tracked and detained the suspect, who was said to have insulted the Yang di-Pertuan Agong on Facebook.

"The suspect, who is female, was detained to assist in investigations," he said in a statement Tuesday.

He added that the suspect was believed to have been in hiding after her identity was revealed on the Internet following the alleged insult.

"The commission is also requesting for the suspect's friends to come forward to assist in further investigations.

"The investigation was done under Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998," he said, adding that the suspect might also be charged under the Sedition Act 1948. Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998 refers to the improper use of network facilities or network service.

 He said the MCMC viewed seriously the abuse of social media to upload content or comments containing elements of insult, especially against the monarchy. - The Star

Everest: One Malaysian climber died, one critically ill

NEW DELHI: The unfavourable weather condition is delaying the rescue mission for two Malaysian climbers, one of whom is critically ill and the other confirmed dead.

"The evacuation process is on the way but the weather condition is not favourable to move the young trekker's body and another person who is critically ill," a Malaysian official in Kathmandu, Nepal said.

The climber who died is Mohamad Shahrulnizam Ahmad Nazari, 25, an employee of Putrajaya Corporation.

Both the climbers suffered from acute mountain sickness (AMS) while heading to the Mount Everest base camp on Monday and one died at 5pm (Nepal time) on Monday, he told Bernama when contacted Tuesday.

"The nearest exit point is Lukla Airport. We have to wait for the weather condition to improve before we can bring back the body and the critically ill Malaysian to Kathmandu."

Tenzing-Hillary Airport, also known as Lukla Airport, is a small airport in the town of Lukla, in Khumbu, Solukhumbu district, Sagarmatha zone, eastern Nepal.

"The process of sending them back to Malaysia can only be done once they are in Kathmandu," the officer said. - Bernama
