My electricity bills are giving me headaches and heartaches

This Spotlight is sponsored by Tenaga Nasional Berhad.

According to Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB), the usage of electricity within housing areas increased between 20% – 50% during the Movement Control Order (MCO)

It’s a no-brainer as to why this happened. While everyone was following the government’s directive to #JustStayAtHome, this caused a significant surge in electricity usage in residential sectors, which resulted in a spike in electricity bill costs.

MH370 and MH17 will NEVER be forgotten

AMSTERDAM: On a vast expanse of green not far from the Amsterdam Schiphol international airport stands 298 trees – one for each life lost tragically in a crime against humanity almost six years ago.

Each tree represents one person on board ill-fated Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 which took off from the Schiphol airport and was shot down over eastern Ukraine on July 17, 2014.

The vast majority – 193 out of the total 298 – of those who perished in the downing of the aircraft were Dutch. The rest included Malaysians, Australians, Britons, and 13 other nationalities.

With the case returning to the spotlight with the start of the trial tomorrow, the number of visitors to this MH17 memorial park has expectedly increased.

Images of the message, which was scribbled on a piece of paper, went viral on social media after they were shared by his daughter, Syafiqa Humairak, 32, on her Facebook page.

Please give PEACE a chance

There are many hardships facing Indian soldiers posted to the icy Himalayan hilltops along the disputed border with China. But no one expected this. 

One moment, they felt healthy and alert, eyes peeled for signs of their aggressive neighbour’s troops. Then, within less than a minute, they began to vomit almost simultaneously, as if struck down by a violent stomach bug.

The soldiers’ bodies grew weak, with some barely able to stand, and they fled, leaving the hilltops open for units of Chinese soldiers to move in and occupy. Not a shot had been fired.
