SINGAPORE: Two Singaporeans died while onboard cruise ship Voyager of the Seas, its operating company Royal Caribbean Cruises said on Wednesday (May 15).

The passengers, who were aged 61 and 75, died of "unrelated natural causes", a spokesperson for the cruise company confirmed in an email to CNA.   

"As per our standard procedure, we have informed the respective families and we are providing them assistance during this difficult time," the spokesperson added.

“We extend our most sincere condolences to the families."

According to Cruise Mapper, Voyager of the Seas departed from Singapore on Monday at 4.30pm and arrived in Penang on Tuesday, before setting off and docking at Phuket on Wednesday. It is expected to return to Singapore on Friday.

The cruise ship had its first voyage in 1999 and has 1,643 guest rooms, according to the Royal Caribbean Cruises' website. The ship sails to several destinations, including Australia, Fiji and New Zealand.

It didn’t seem like a bad deal – S$50 for a 1-hour body massage.

And so this uncle, who has chosen to remain anonymous so as not to embarrass himself further, gave it a shot.

Problem is – the staff there had other shots on their minds.

Innocent Uncle went to the massage parlour for a back rub and didn’t sense something amiss when the counter staff asked him if he wanted any  “extra services”.

He was assigned a female masseuse – the only gender of masseuse the outlet had.

Shortly into the massage, the masseuse started caressing his lower body and private parts.

Innocent Uncle thought this was part off the overall experience, but got a shock when she asked him if he wanted a little tug on his little bro (i.e to help him masturbate lah).


He turned down the offer and asked her to get on with the massage.

The masseuse, thinking that her offer of S$50 for the job was too high, lowered the price to S$30 but still got rejected by Innocent Uncle.

Then, thinking that maybe he wasn’t interested because it wasn’t stimulating enough, she offered him a “yuan yang” – showering naked together, during which she would help him ejaculate.

We dated less than a year. I didnt know he is an introvert and boring person before we got married.

Is it normal for an adult man to sleep 1 bed with his mom?

 His mother asked him to come back to her house so can sleep in 1 bed.

I felt so disgusted when I first heard about it.

But then got e few of my friends , the husband also like that.

They stay together with the mother in law, if the wife is not around the husband will go to the mom's bedroom.

WhatsApp has revealed a vulnerability in its system that could have allowed hackers access to its users' phones, with a London-based human rights lawyer possibly among the targets.


The encrypted messaging service, owned by Facebook (FB), said Monday that it had discovered and fixed the vulnerability the attackers had sought to exploit. The hackers could implant malicious code on a victim's phone by placing a voice call to the victim on WhatsApp.


"The attack has all the hallmarks of a private company reportedly that works with governments to deliver spyware that takes over the functions of mobile phone operating systems," a WhatsApp spokesperson said in a statement.


While WhatsApp did not name the private company, a source familiar with the investigation into the attack said that company is NSO Group, an Israeli cyber company that has developed a powerful piece of malware designed to spy on its victims.


In a statement provided to CNN on Monday, NSO said, "Under no circumstances would NSO be involved in the operating or identifying of targets of its technology, which is solely operated by intelligence and law enforcement agencies."


NSO said its technology was licensed to government agencies "for the sole purpose of fighting crime and terror," adding that those agencies determine how the technology is used without any involvement from the company.


The Financial Times first reported details of the vulnerability.

This is a story of a guy who attended an interview by a panel for a teaching position ages ago. He was asked by the lead interviewer who appeared to be a seasoned school principal: " Why do you want to teach?". He replied enthusiastically: " I would like to share with students what I learnt from my working life experience. I would also like to impart some life skills to today's students so that they can be better prepared for work or their careers when they graduate."

The lead interviewer looked at the guy with disdain and told him straight in the face: "You are just here to teach, that's it." The poor chap was stunned... and obviously very disappointed with the response. He didn't take up the job offer after being eventually informed of his successful application.

SINGAPORE — A bitter dispute between SEA Games marathon champion Soh Rui Yong and teammate Ashley Liew over a contested act of sportsmanship has intensified.

Lawyers acting for Mr Liew on Thursday (May 9) demanded that Mr Soh pay S$120,000 in monetary damages to Mr Liew for defamation, remove all “false” public statements and issue a public apology.

In a Facebook post in October last year, Mr Soh had disputed Mr Liew’s account of events during the SEA Games men’s marathon final in 2015.

In a widely publicised incident, Mr Liew said he had slowed down to allow other runners in the event to catch up after they missed a U-turn and took the wrong path. Mr Soh won the race.

The incident led to Mr Liew winning the Pierre de Coubertin World Fair Play Trophy — a global prize for good sportsmanship.

On April 9, Mr Liew’s lawyer, Mr Mark Teng of That.Legal LLC, sent a letter to Mr Soh saying that his statements about Mr Liew had “hurt and disparaged” his client’s professional image as a doctor of chiropractic and his reputation as a competitive marathon runner. These had also caused Mr Liew “financial and reputational loss and damage”.

 Singapore’s parliament has passed legislation against “fake news”, a move that has been criticised by rights groups, journalists and tech firms over fears it could be used to clamp down on freedom of speech.

The law, which passed on Wednesday, will require online media platforms to carry corrections or remove content the government considers to be false, with penalties for perpetrators including prison terms of up to 10 years or fines up to S$1m ($735,000).

Technology giants including Google and Facebook have said they see the law giving Singapore’s government too much power in deciding what qualifies as true or false.

Phil Robertson, deputy Asia director at Human Rights Watch said the new law was a “disaster for online expression by ordinary Singaporeans, and a hammer blow against the independence of many online news portals”.

“Singapore’s leaders have crafted a law that will have a chilling affect on internet freedom throughout south-east Asia, and likely start a new set of information wars as they try to impose their narrow version of ‘truth’ on the wider world.”
