Man builds ‘luxury villa’ for departed wife
A 53-year-old man spent RM10,000 on a paper effigy of a luxury villa for his wife who died three years ago.
The villa, made by six workers in three weeks, featured a badminton court, a swimming pool, an automatic gate and all sorts of electrical items as well as furniture, China Press reported.
Wu Chun Fa said he loved his wife very much and he hoped she could also “enjoy” life after she died.
“I am very satisfied with the design of the villa,” he said, adding that the paper effigy of the villa would be burnt after a prayer ceremony that would be held from March 1-3 in Segamat.
> China Press reported about a 11-year-old boy who stole a female rabbit from a neighbouring house and replaced it with a male one.
The boy did not show any remorse when he was caught.
A 76-year-old man said that the boy used to play with his grandchildren and neighbour's children in his house in Batu Pahat prior to the incident.
“My daughter-in-law spotted the boy with a rabbit at about 4pm on Sunday so we went to check our rabbits.
“None of the rabbits were missing so we thought everything was okay.
“Later in the day, my son found that one of the male rabbits in the cage was not his,” he said.
Eventually, the boy and his mother came to return the rabbit after the mother found out that the boy had stolen the rabbit.
The boy refused to step out from the car and apologise to the man.
