>Mandapop superstar Jay Chou thought of getting a tattoo to express his love for his wife but gave up on the idea because he was afraid of the pain, reported Oriental Daily.
According to the daily, Chou had visited a friend’s tattoo parlour recently despite being busy with publicity work for his recently released album “The Greatest Work”. He posted on Instagram asking his fans on what design to get for his tattoo.
“Should I get a tattoo of a boat and name it ‘Happy Wife, Happy Life’? But I’m afraid of the pain, especially for a dragon or phoenix tattoo.
“I think I will stick with stickers,” he said.
Chou married actress Hannah Quinlivan in 2015 and the couple have three children.
>The daily also reported that a man in Ningbo, Zhejiang province, China, demanded 1,000 yuan (RM649) in compensation from a supermarket after buying a bottle of yoghurt past its expiry date by a minute.
The man had bought the yogurt for 4.90 yuan (RM3.18) at 8.29pm before realising that the expiry date was at 8.28pm the same day.
He complained to the supermarket’s management and demanded compensation.
However, while the supermarket offered to replace the bottle, it refused to pay the sum.
The man then filed a lawsuit with the court, arguing that it was the supermarket’s responsibility to ensure that their goods were not expired.
However, the case was settled out of court when the supermarket agreed to pay the man 400 yuan (RM259). The matter has sparked heated discussions online with netizens supporting the man for voicing his rights.
