After Russia started bombing Syrian rebels, there have been numerous reports of civilian casualties. Here is a heart-wrenching example – a photo that shows a distraught father crying over the bodies of his three young children killed by the Russians in Aleppo, Syria. The caption in English reads : A
This picture has been floating around for years now, apparently showing the Israelis tearing a Palestinian child apart. It is often used as a symbol of Israeli brutality against the Palestinians. The sentiment may be justified but the story isn’t true at all… Let’s show you why.
Zara, the Spanish fast-fashion retailer, has come under attack for (apparently) banning women wearing the hijab from their stores. As the story goes, Zara in France decided not to let women wearing the hijab from entering their stores after the Paris terrorist attacks. Take a look at
IKEA Cheras is opening its doors tomorrow morning. Many people are already planning to join the opening celebrations tomorrow. You won’t find us there though because we had not only taken a tour inside four days ago, we have already finished our shopping at their brand-new outlet! Don’t worry. We have prepared SIX
Screams of “haha!” inundated Lot 10 Kuala Lumpur as over 2,000 K-pop fans came to watch Korean superstar Ha Dong-hoon perform live. Ha Dong-hoon, who is better known as “Haha” flew in from Incheon as the highlight of 11street Malaysia’s Korean-inspired LOVE 11 Day celebrations. We are very fortunate to
On the 11th of November, 2015, 11street Malaysia invited us to their Korean-inspired ‘Love 11‘ event in Lot 10 Kuala Lumpur. In this inaugural celebration of the ‘Love 11’ Day, they not only announced a massive RM 11 million giveaway this year, they also unveiled two TV commercials
When Alvin Tan posted a comic of himself using a page from the Quran as toilet paper, he was pelted with death threats and curses. Amidst the furore, no one noticed the page that Alvin Tan used as toilet paper. No one, except for Illy Muzliza. Here is a
In his latest salvo against religion, Alvin Tan posted a comic strip showing him using a page from the Quran as toilet paper. The Internet literally EXPLODED with thousands of people sharing and/or commenting on it. Take a look at the post that has polarised so many Malaysians… For those
Steve Jobs may have died 4 years ago, but he seemed to have left nuggets of wisdom for us to discover. Like this new discovery of his “last words” on how the “non-stop pursuing of wealth will only turn a person into a twisted being“, just like him.
A few days ago, Property Insight Malaysia, a monthly property investment magazine, posted this comparison on renting vs buying a property on their Facebook page. They claim that renting a RM 320,000 property (instead of buying it) will save you RM 112,570 in upfront costs, and RM 823 in
This meme has been circulating on Facebook and Twitter for a while now. The original poster (OP) of this Facebook post, one Chris Gramps Reise, cleverly adds that he would delete all explanations, and asks that everyone just Like and Share his post. As a result, tens of thousands
Scammers are a dime a dozen, and why not? It pays very well. As David Hannum once said in criticism of P. T. Barnum – There’s a sucker born every minute. Is it any wonder that they are so brazen? On the Internet, they are literally shouting at
I really pity the Palestinians. Not only do they get bullied on a regular basis by the Israelis, they have the great misfortune of being saddled by some truly imbecilic supporters. These idiots do the stupidest things possible, which makes other (sane) supporters of the Palestinian cause look stupid as well.
The Malaysian public is panicking over a new controversy – alcohol in paracetamol syrup made by a local pharmaceutical company – Royce Pharma. Royce Pharma failed to declare the alcohol used in their 120 mg / 5 ml paracetamol syrup preparation to the ministry, and was ordered to recall the product. The panic,
The recent rabies outbreak brought out the best in people. The resulting cull in the tristate areas of Perlis, Kedah and Penang galvanised animal lovers to volunteer their time and money to help save stray dogs from the cull. Even foreign NGOs came to offer their help. However,
Last week, four houses in Mutiara Damansara were burgled while their owners were not at home. In most cases, we never really know how burglars broke into those houses, so we could do nothing more than warn other residents about these break-ins. Fortunately, one of the house owners took the
I dislike religious apologists. They spend their time and effort creating false narratives to support their own point of view. Don’t they know that lying is a sin in their religions? Take this one, for example. It claims that the Islamic Rage Boy is a Mossad agent called
It is said that hoaxes never die, they just get reborn again and again. This hoax that Panadol kills vultures and is toxic to humans has been around for ages. We debunked it in this Tech ARP forum post in 2011, but it’s been revived again. Let’s take a
This morning, I woke up to a new feature on Facebook – auto-play videos. Basically, Facebook will now automatically play any video that comes into focus on your Timeline or Facebook Wall. I know it’s tradition for Facebook users to bitch about every new feature or change that
The social media frenzy over the culling of stray dogs due to a rabies outbreak has led to an all-too-familiar outcome – the truth takes a backseat to Joe Public’s hysteria. Armed with the mighty Google search engine, they trawl the Internet. Not for the whole unvarnished truth, but
