Man slammed for posting naked selfies online

First we have a girl who looks like ‘snake spirit’, now meet ‘snake boy’.

Dubbed so for his bizarre looking eyes and sharp chin, Liu Zichen is causing a stir for flaunting his wealth and posting photos of himself in various states of undress online. Some of the disturbing selfies feature him lying naked on a pile of cash and posing in awkward semi squat positions. Don't ask.

Even after netizens dug up what they believe is his ID photo from five years ago (right), the 18-year-old model from Beijing insists he’s only had minor work done to his nose and attributes his good looks to his “mixed ancestry”. And his chin? Well, that’s the result of using face slimming mask. Not sure about you but I’d sure like to get my hands on this miracle mask.

Woman strips down for subway ride after getting drenched

A Hong Kong woman drew curious stares when she rode the subway in her nude undies on Tuesday night (May 19). Soaked to the bone from the heavy downpour, the woman, who was clutching a small towel, seemed oblivious to the attention she was attracting.

According to Hong Kong reports, passengers avoided the drenched woman when she boarded the train cabin and started snapping photos of her. A case of the Emperor’s new clothes, maybe?

Passengers attack airport staff after flight delay

Dozens of Chinese passengers flew into a rage, hurling meal boxes and bottles at China Southern Airlines' service counter staff at Shenzhen’s Baoan Airport last Friday (May 15) after their flights were delayed due to bad thunderstorms.

Passengers were initially calm when they were informed about the delay at around 7pm but things got ugly when there was still no change in flight status after four hours.

Some threatened airline staff with violence, while others demanded financial compensation, accommodation and food, which was eventually delivered at 11pm. But it was too late as the quarrel had escalated and one man even tried to climb over the counter to attack an employee.

Two-day-old baby forced to walk by doctor

A two-day-old baby was forced to walk by a witch doctor in Assam, India, to cure his high temperature. A video of the bizarre ritual showed the infant, who was stripped naked, grabbed by the neck and forced to “walk” across a blanket in full view of the public. The child looked terrified as it cried during the ordeal.

Fortunately, the person who shot the video sent it to the authorities and two women were believed to have been arrested. The baby is now recovering in hospital.

Oh crap! Man lets son poop at HDB playground

We know when you gotta go, you gotta go. But is it really too much to ask for one to take their dirty business to the loo?

According to a post on community website All Singapore Stuff, a netizen nicknamed Angry Singaporean on Thursday (May 21) saw a man help his son drop trou so he could poop at a playground in an HDB estate, even though there was a coffee shop nearby. No word on whether he cleaned up after the kid.

Man buys ice coffin to keep dead wife’s body at home

Talk about devotion. A man in Sichuan has stored his late wife in an ice coffin so he can keep her body at home.

According to Chinese media reports, his wife of 30 years passed away from illness in December but the man still cannot let go. He had vowed to keep her at home and reportedly still talks to her every night before he goes to bed.

However, he will not be able to do so much longer as regulations stipulate bodies must not be kept longer than five days before cremation.

Girl causes stir for naked bungee jump in Thailand

A Hong Kong teen has caused a stir after videos of her bungee jumping naked in Chiang Mai went viral.

The 17-year-old, who is believed to be a model, had reportedly told staff that she required some bungee jumping shots for her portfolio and would jump in her bikini. However, she stripped off and leaped before staff could stop her.

The operator has since been fined 1,000 baht (S$40) and though the teen is believed to have left the country, authorities will take it up with the Hong Kong consulate about her behaviour.
