A lesson on food
The Star, 9 September 2012
At the Kheng See Hin Fishery in Pangkor Island, Perak, Johann Lafer, a German celebrity chef, is knee deep in squid. It is a far cry away from his holiday abode at the Pangkor Laut Resort, a hillside villa with a spectacular view of the rainforest and an unhindered view of the sea. But Lafer is no shrinking violet and gets right down to the dirty by jumping onto a fishing boat. He wants to examine how the guys are sorting out the catch.


Robbery attempt 'foiled' by Starhill security
Kuala Lumpur, 13 July 2012
Security personnel at the Starhill Gallery shopping mall cleverly stopped an attempt by three shoplifters to steal a substantial number of goods from Uniqlo, a famous fashion retail outlet nearby.

The mall’s security team, extra-vigilant in response to the recent crime wave, had become suspicious of three well-dressed individuals – two women and a man – lounging and sipping orange juice at Starhill’s terrace cafe. Believed to be Vietnamese, the three of them bolted from the scene as Starhill security guards drew nearer to apprehend them, leaving behind their loot.

Starhill Gallery’s chief of security, Colin Siow, commented: “They had three duffel bags and seemed to be secretly exchanging things amongst one another. This behaviour prompted our security guards to instinctively approach them, causing them to ditch their bags and run away.“

Detailed investigation by the team then revealed this shoplifting syndicate’s modus operandi. “Layers of aluminium foil were very subtly stiched into the inner lining of the branded duffel bags, to ingeniously avoid setting off the alarm at the fashion outlet’s exit, allowing them to elude detection,” explained Siow. “Aluminium foil impedes the signal between the security tag on the goods and the detection system, regardless of whether it is a magnetic or radio security system.” Siow urges all shopkeepers to be on high alert.

The total value of the stolen garments stood at RM1, 871, and they have since been returned to Uniqlo by Starhill Gallery.
