Song Joong Ki’s lookalike goes viral

There’s a belief that everyone has a doppleganger out there and for Korean actor Song Joong Ki, his twin comes in the form of Chinese flight attendant Feng Ming. A cabin crew with China Southern Airlines, Feng Ming has become an Internet sensation for his striking resemblance to the Korean heartthrob, who recently propelled to stratospheric fame with popular drama Descendants of the Sun.

The 24-year-old, who has been photographed helping passengers with their luggage, is blessed with the same porcelain skin and boyish looks as Joong Ki and is often mistaken for the handsome actor. According to Chinese media, Feng Ming has been approached for selfies while on the job and some fans are so convinced that he is Joong Ki that they have posted about their encounter with the “actor” on social media.

Woman quits job to breastfeed boyfriend

An Atlanta woman has quit her job so that she can feed her 36-year-old boyfriend full time. After reading about adult breastfeeding relationships, Jen Mulford became intrigued by the idea and began trying it out with her partner Brad Leeson. In order to trick her body into thinking that she is nursing a child, Jen will dry feed or pump every two hours to help induce lactation.

Though Jen, who has a 20-year-old daughter, has yet to successfully induce lactation, the couple are very committed to making it happen and follow their schedule strictly. In addition, Jen also takes an herbal pill and introduced oatmeal and flax seeds to her diet in order to increase her milk supply. “It's a natural bond between a man and a woman... there's nothing more relaxing than having him latch on, nothing at all,” said Jen.

KFC accidentally locks 5 people in Novena Square restaurant

Five people were trapped in the KFC outlet at Novena Square for about an hour on May 29 after employees locked up for the night. Turns out that the diners, who were too engrossed in conversation, too did not know they were locked in the restaurant and only realised their predicament at around 10.30pm when one of the women noticed the shutters were drawn.

The trapped customers reportedly tried to seek help by pounding on the shutters and finally caught the attention of a group of students passing by the outlet. According to TODAY, the students tried calling the KFC hotline, looking for the security guards of the mall, and checking if any of the shutters or doors could be opened. The women eventually found a back door in the kitchen and left around 11.15pm, before the police arrived. KFC has offered the women a free meal as a token of apology.

Cross-dressing man tricks men into dating him, flees with their money

A cross-dressing conman has been arrested after scamming 11 men over the past year into thinking he was the woman of their dreams and taking off with their money. In one of the more bizarre cases, he claimed that he was pregnant and tricked a man that he met online into marrying him. However three days after the wedding, the “bride” disappeared, taking with her all the wedding gifts and valuables worth tens of thousand dollars.

His cheating streak came to an end recently when a man whom he was “dating” filed a police report after being scammed of 31,000 yuan (approximately S$6,400). The police managed to lure the “woman” to an Internet cafe but the suspect that turned up was a man, Miao Songtao. It was only when police searched Songtao's home and found women’s clothes and wigs that they figured out what he was up to.

Songtao later confessed that in a span of one year, he had managed to defraud 11 boyfriends out of hundreds of thousands of dollars. And the best part is, none of them had any idea that the person they married, or supposedly had sexual relations with, was a guy.

Iran football goalkeeper suspended for wearing “'SpongeBob trousers”

Who knew the morality police in Iran also doubled up as the fashion police? Iran’s football goalkeeper Sosha Makani has been slapped with a six-month ban after a photo of him wearing “SpongeBob trousers” made the rounds on social media. Iran has strict clothing laws and the football federation’s morality committee took issue with the outfit, saying that it reminded them of the animated character SpongeBob SquarePants.

The ISNA news agency reported the penalty was for "inappropriate conduct" though there is speculation that it could also be related to an earlier controversy in which Sosha was arrested after photos of him dancing and hugging a woman were leaked online. The ruling is not final and can be appealed.

Woman almost severs cheating husband’s penis

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. A woman was so furious when she found out that her husband had been cheating on her with her best friend that she slashed his penis with a penknife. The wife, a fried chicken seller in Pattaya, tricked her husband into removing his trousers by pretending she wanted to perform oral sex. But instead of performing the sex act, she took out a penknife and started slashing him, almost severing his penis. After the attack, the man was found bleeding profusely in the street with an ice pack held against his genitals. He was rushed to hospital for emergency surgery though it is unclear if he will make a full recovery.

Seagull turns orange after falling into curry

A seagull that was helping itself to some curry turned bright orange after falling into a vat of tikka masala. While trying to scavenge some meat on Monday, it fell into a waste container filled with curry. The bird was rescued by workers and then sent to Vale Wildlife Hospital where it was treated. Staff at the UK hospital cleaned it with washing-up liquid and though its feathers have returned to its original white colour (inset), it still smells of curry. The bird will be transferred to an outside aviary to re-waterproof his feathers before being released into the wild.

Villagers squeal with delight at two-headed pig

A 'mutant' two-headed pig born with three eyes and two snouts has become quite the attraction at a farm in China’s Sichuan province. Dubbed the “freak pig”, the animal has attracted hordes of curious visitors and some have even offered to buy the animal, which was born last Sunday (Jun 5). However, farmer Zhong Guoyuan refused to sell his prized animal as his son wants to keep the piglet for himself. Guoyuan said that he had been raising the sow for three years before she gave birth to a litter of pigs including the two-headed piglet.
