Bangkok Roasted Chicken, A Hot Seller In Wakaf Stan



KOTA BHARU, April 28 —  Since the first day of Ramadan, the stall selling “Ayam Bakar Tempayan Bangkok” in Wakaf Stan, Kubang Kerian, here, has been attracting a long queue of people waiting to buy the roasted chicken dish for their breaking of fast.

People are seen queuing at the stall even before it opens at 3 pm.

The stall owner, Wira Mohd Fauzi, 41, said he named the dish, which is chicken roasted in earthenware pot, with the word “Bangkok”, not merely as a gimmick to attract customers.

“It is because the recipe is from Thailand, passed down from one generation to another by my wife, Nur Hanim Abdullah’’s family, who is from Udon Thani, Thailand.

“I use earthenware pots to roast the chicken because it is faster, yet the meat of the chicken is soft and tender, and tastes better,” he said when met by Bernama.

According to Wira, he would start marinating the chicken as early as 4 am using special ingredients, including from Thailand, and leave them for a few hours before they are ready to be cooked.

He said he had been able to sell an average of 200 birds daily, with the price ranging from RM24 to RM26 per bird.

The “Ayam Bakar Tempayan Bangkok” comes with three special sauces — sweet sauce, green seafood sauce, and black pepper sauce.

Wira, who started the business in 2018, now has seven employees to help him.



Mao Mao: A Feline Professional Car Model That Earns More Than Most Humans



A cat in China is a professional cat model and earns between 5,000 yuan (RM3,183) to 10,000 yuan (RM6,366) per appearance. Mao Mao is a two-year-old British Shorthair from Chongqing, China.

Her rise to stardom was actually an accident. Zheng, her owner put the feline on one of the cars he was promoting in an auto show. This immediately drew a crowd of people who are excited to snap a photo of the cute kitty. That meant more exposure for the car brands. Since then, Zheng started promoting Mao Mao as a cat model to car brands looking for extra attention. Nowadays, the cat is a household name at auto shows and routinely lands a few appearances per month.

Like the human equivalent of the job, it’s all about looking cute and attracting attention. Mao Mao is a natural. With her pouty face, nonchalant attitude along with the costumes, Mao Mao is irresistible. While most cats are shy, Mao Mao loves attention.

Animal lovers have no worries about her welfare as the owner loves her very much. Zheng only accepts three or four events per month, which still adds up to a pretty penny. Zheng makes sure to reward his pet for her “effort”, buying her only the most expensive cat food and pampering her like the star that she is.

From singer to actor to show hosts, Lee Seung Gi is not just a man of high versatility. He joins various shows like KBS’s 2 Days & 1 Night as well as co-hosting Strong Heart. Other shows include Master In the House and Busted! as his latest variety show projects.

2. Song Ji Hyo

Her first drama Goong gained her instant popularity and flourishing roles as an actor. But Song Ji Hyo is not jsut a pretty face. After gaining long-term position in variety show Running Man, ‘Mong’ Ji Hyo becomes a household name. The Korean beauty is not afraid of going out barefaced especially with the constant beauty standards in the country. She is not afraid to show her candid tomboy-ish persona as well as her grit.

Despite being the only female member of the popular show, Ji Hyo gets along extremely well and having familial relationship with the rest of the cast members. Fans applauded her charm, fierceness that guarantees entertainment for the show. Other variety shows the actress participated in include Song Ji Hyo’s Beauty View, Song Ji Hyo’s Beautiful Life, and Pajama Friends.

3. Cha Eun Woo

This actor recently makes a name for himself in popular dramas like My ID Is Gangnam Beauty, Rookie Historian Goo Hae Ryung, and  True Beauty. But his handsome face makes it to shows like Law of the Jungle, Handsome Tigers, and Master In the House.

Opposite to his actor persona, Cha has charm and charisma in variety shows. His candid and cheerful personality earned him a rookie award at the 2020 SBS Entertainment Awards for Master in The House.

4. Lee Kwang Soo

This actor needs no introduction. Like Song Ji-hyo, Lee has been a long-term cast of Running Man until his recent departure from the show due to health problems. However, he will be forever iconic with his antics. His silliness and spontaneity are why in every variety show, he is the hysterical member.

He was in dramas like It’s Okay, That’s Love, Confession, and Inseparable Bros. He also took part in the Netflix variety show Busted! as a main member during the first and third seasons, as well as being a guest in season two.

Even if he’s leaving Running Man, fans can still see him in other shows as well. And where there’s Lee Kwang Soo, there will always be hysterical laughter.

(Video) Once Occupied By The Sultan of Johor, This Is The ‘Istana Woodneuk’



Istana Woodneuk is located in the deep woods of the Holland Road and Tyersall Road area in Singapore. It was once occupied by the Sultan of Johor, but now remains empty and covered in vegetation and decay. This historic mansion was built in the late 19th century by a wealthy sultan who wanted to gift the magnificent residence to his fourth wife. Years passed and this saw the mansion handed down to one of the sultan’s sons. He performed extensive renovations on the property before gifting it to his Scottish-born wife.

This grand old mansion was to serve a far more important purpose than simply a residence for a wealthy family. As WWII rolled around and Singapore was occupied by the Japanese, the mansion was converted to be used as both a General’s Headquarters and a military hospital. Many wounded and sick people were treated within the Istana Woodneuk Mansion, but a bombing in 1942 saw a massive surge in casualties. It is estimated that around 700 lives were lost within the property during this dark moment in history.

Given the history and amount of death experienced within the building, it makes sense that many consider the mansion to be haunted. However, there are some darker aspects to the mansion’s past that have further solidified these beliefs. The Istana Woodneuk certainly fits the description of a haunted mansion. Well hidden, dark, overgrown, and sporting a crumbling façade covered in sinister graffiti. Yet, it is the history of the house lends weight to its spooky legends.

Since a fire ravaged the building in 2006 much of its structure was destroyed. This event has further increased deterioration and an onslaught of vandalism. Many of the surfaces of the building are now covered in dark symbolism, including graffiti featuring upside-down crosses, the number 666, and many other ‘Satanic-type’ symbolism. It is difficult to say whether this is the reason for the many rumors that the mansion is a hotbed for Satanists to perform dark rituals, yet the rumors are prevalent.
