Mas Selamat Kastari

JEMAAH Islamiah terrorist Mas Selamat Kastari, who has been on run for nearly five days, is still believed to be in Singapore, police said on Sunday.
Police also believed he is 'acting on his own', and is not getting help from anyone.
Police said there is no evidence he has fled the country as he has no money, food, nor transport means.
With no means of his own, police warned that Mas Selamat, 47, who escaped from the Whitley Road Detention Centre on Wednesday at 4.05 pm, could resort to stealing items like clothes and food to get by.
Police also asked the public to look out for the fugitive who could be wearing stolen ill-fitting clothes or a cap.
More than 1,000 policemen, and soldiers and special operation command forces are searching all over the country for him.
More than 54,000 posters and leaflets on the wanted man have been put up and distributed at public places and to residents of private homes.
Besides seeking the community involvement in the continuing manhunt for Mas Selamat, the search parties are combing all the forested areas in Singapore, including Sungei Buloh, and unoccupied buiildings.
Security checks at all the checkpoints have also been tightened. Interpol has also issued a red alert for Mas Selamat on top of a previous orange alert. The red alert means that any law enforcement officer among the international police network's 186 member countries can help arrest him on the spot.

UPDATE: 4th Mar 2008

Over the past 6 days, 1,000 uniformed personnels searching almost every corner of Singapore and even the Interpol for assistance to locate him. Can Mas Selamat Kastari be found?

HE may resort to changing the way he looks, but fugitive Mas Selamat Kastari has one distinctive physical feature that works against him - his limping left leg.
Wearing a wig or shaving himself bald are some of the most common forms of disguises adopted.
Sporting a beard, a moustache or a goatee are some common ways of obscuring the facial features. But unless he has an accomplice who would have prepared the necessary disguise kit, time would be a factor.
Mas Selamat may even take to wearing his ethnic outfit, like a sarong.

Nine disciplined, replaced in aftermath of Mas Selamat's escape

NINE guards and Internal Security Department (ISD)officers have been disciplined or replaced for failing to stop the escape of terrorist leader Mas Selamat Kastari.
They include the two senior officers in charge of the Whitley Road Detention Centre and their immediate boss at ISD, who holds a rank equivalent to a Brigadier General in the army.

Police charged the two Gurkha Contingent guards who had escorted Mas Selamat the day he escaped. They had pleaded guilty and have been demoted in rank.

The superintendent of the detention centre has been dismissed from service.

His deputy has been demoted in rank, with a pay cut.

The Special Duty Operative - an ISD officer who handled the family visit when Mas Selamat escaped - has been dismissed from service.

Two other officers at the Whitley Road detention centre received departmental warning letters.
One of them is a technical officer who was responsible for the closed-circuit television camera upgrading at the centre.

The eighth individual affected was the Chief Warder. She too received a warning letter.

The Command Director at the ISD was also among those replaced.

UPDATE: 30 JULY 2008

Trio quit jobs to go bounty hunting

THREE Singaporeans have quit their jobs to hunt for Mas Selamat Kastari following the S$1mil (RM2.3mil) reward being offered for the escaped terrorist, Sin Chew Daily reported.
The trio, in their 20s, have given themselves a year to hunt down the terrorist, who escaped from the republic’s prison on Feb 27.
Two businessmen, who remained anonymous, had recently announced they were offering a S$1mil reward for Mas Selamat's capture.
The three men, all of whom had undergone commando training during their national service, resigned from their jobs in the private sector last week and left for Indonesia last Saturday.
Chen Jin Nan, the founder of Crime Library and spokesperson for the trio, told a Singapore daily that they would try to trace Mas Selamat's escape route from Singapore to Indonesia.
They then plan to blend into the local communities to seek clues on Mas Selamat's whereabouts.

Suspected Singaporean terrorist Mas Selamat Kastari has been arrested by Malaysian police.
It is learnt the fugitive, who escaped from a Singapore maximum security detention centre on Feb 27, 2008 was arrested in Johor together with two others by Special Branch officers following intelligence sharing with the police forces of Indonesia and Singapore.
Sources said police here who had been on high alert for the suspected terrorist since his escape had gathered intelligence from their counterparts that Mas Selamat was hiding in Johor and was planning to create unrest in several countries in the region.

UPDATE: 11 May 2009

Fugitive militant Mas Selamat Kastari (pic) found the perfect spot to hide - a secluded village in Johor unmarked on any map, not even Google.
He found a traditional kampung house on stilts in Kampung Tawakal, a tiny village with a population of less than 100.
Located about 10km away from the North-South Expressway near the Kempas exit, it is almost impossible to locate for those not familiar with the area.
All around are oil palm trees and there are no signboards pointing to the village as one drives along the main road of Jalan Kampung Maju Jaya.
About 5km away sits the exclusive Starhill Golf and Country Club.

Malaysian police had closed in on him and were shouting to him to surrender, but Mas Selamat Kastari refused to give up.

He clambered up to the second floor of the kampung house he was hiding in and tried to flee.

Police then kicked down the doors and brought him out with his hands cuffed behind his back and his head covered in a dark-blue checked sarong.

He was bundled into a police vehicle and taken away from the secluded Kampung Tawakal near Skudai, Johor, in the early morning of April 1.

And there ended his 13 months of life on the run.

Next-door neighbour Jamian Simin recounted the drama of that day to The Straits Times yesterday.

The 70-year-old retiree was having coffee when he heard the sounds of people running. He looked out of his window to find the capture of Singapore's most-wanted terrorist taking place before his very eyes.

Before that, he had no clue about Mas Selamat's true identity. No one in the village of 100 people had heard of him either, it would appear, except for his landlord and wife.

Mas Selamat escaped from the Whitley Road Detention Centre on Feb 27 last year, sparking off one of the largest manhunts in the region.

News of his capture was made public last week. He is believed to have swum to Johor using an improvised flotation device. — The Straits Times

This is the interior of the lower part of the house, where Mas Selamat spent most of his time. The room has two sofa sets, a punching bag, a shelf of books, a table, as well as an aquarium (on top of cabinet at right) containing dead fish in murky water.

No handover to Singapore - Mas Selamat to be Held in M'sia for 2 years under ISA

Mas Selamat Kastari (center), who was arrested in Skudai, Johor last month, is being held for two years under the Malaysia's Internal Security Act (ISA).

UPDATE: 22 Sept 2009
Mas Selamat happier being detained in M'sia

PETALING JAYA: Jemaah Islamiah militant Mas Selamat Kastari is happier being detained in Malaysia than in Singapore, says a human rights commissioner.

Suhakam vice-chairman Tan Sri Simon Sipaun said Mas Selamat did not have any complaint about his detention in Kamunting, Perak, where he has been held since early this year.

"He said he prefers to be in Malaysia. He has no complaints of the treatment he gets here.

"His only complaint is on the failure of his family to visit him. From what I understand, there is no problem as far as the Malaysian authorities are concerned.

"The issue is with the Singaporean authorities," he said when contacted yesterday.

Sipaun said both him and Suha-kam commissioner Datuk N. Siva Subramaniam had met Mas Selamat, as well as the other seven detainees during their inspection of the centre on Friday.

The 48-year-old militant had escaped from a maximum security detention centre in Singapore in February last year, and swam to Johor. He was arrested at his hideout in a tiny Johor village in April this year.

Sipaun said Mas Selamat had told him during their meeting that he suspected he was drugged while detained in Singapore as he was constantly dizzy after meals.

He said they spoke to Mas Selamat, who looked healthy, for about 20 to 30 minutes.

"He was not aggressive, he was very pleasant and very polite.

"In fact, we didn't know he was Mas Selamat until we asked him where he was from. Only then did we realise it was him," he said.

"My only regret is that I forgot to ask him how he managed to escape from Singapore, as Singapore is so strict and the security there is so tight," he said.

When contacted, Siva Subramaniam said the militant should be allowed to have his day in court.

"Malaysians, of course, do not support terrorists. But he should be tried in court, to see if he is indeed guilty of all the charges brought against him," he said.

UPDATE: 24 Sept 2010
has been released and will be deported to Singapore

Malaysia will deport a Singaporean terrorist suspect on Friday who spent nearly 18 months in detention after authorities tracked him down following his escape from a high-security prison in the city-state.

Mas Selamat Kastari, who is of Indonesian origin and in his late 40s, was the suspected commander of the Singapore arm of the al-Qaida-linked Jemaah Islamiyah militant group. He is accused of plotting to hijack a plane and crash it into Singapore's international airport. Jemaah Islamiyah is accused of carrying out the 2002 bombings in Bali, Indonesia, that killed 202 people.

After a year on the run, he was captured in Malaysia in April 2009 and was detained under the Internal Security Act that allows indefinite imprisonment without trial.

He has been released and will be deported to Singapore later Friday, a Home Ministry official said on condition of anonymity. The official, who said he was not authorized to release the information to the media, declined to give details.

At the time of his escape, Mas Selamat was being held in a high-security jail in Singapore under the Internal Security Act, which is similar to Malaysia's security law.

He escaped on Feb. 27, 2008, by wriggling out a bathroom window in a shocking breach that severely embarrassed the city-state known for its rigorous security. His ability to remain in hiding for more than a year underscored that terrorist networks in the region remain strong.

The search for Mas Selamat initially focused on Singapore and neighboring Indonesia, where it was thought the local branch of Jemaah Islamiyah would easily provide shelter for him. But he was arrested on the outskirts of Johor Baru, the capital of the southern state of Johor state, which is separated from Singapore by a narrow strip of sea.

A father of four, Mas Selamat escaped when he was taken from his cell to a room where he was waiting for a visit from his family. He disappeared after being granted permission go to the bathroom, authorities said.

Such security breaches are virtually unheard of in tightly policed Singapore, an island nation of 4 million people.

Mas Selamat fled Singapore in December 2001 following a crackdown on Jemaah Islamiyah. He was arrested by the Indonesian police on Bintan island in January 2006 and handed over to Singapore authorities.

Kiss a frog and stay young, study shows

In tales, the princess must kiss a frog to turn it into the charming prince. In reality, this may not happen, but frogs have various uses around the world. We cannot say frogs are a stable component of the human diet, but in some countries people do eat frogs. Italians and French consider the frog legs a delicacy and, in other European countries, you could also serve them as "slough chicken".

In some areas of Latin America, the frogs of the genus Leptodactylus are extremely appreciated and named "mountain chicken," whilst the largest frog of all, the Goliath frog from Camerun, which can be 1 m (3 ft) long with its legs extended and weighing 7 pounds (3 kg), is an endangered species because it is overhunted for food by the locals.

Dried frogs are sold in markets

In South Korea, dried frogs are sold in markets. They are kept in hot water to make a sort of stew or infusion and fed to sick children. Chinese people swallow live frogs against gut worms and as a refreshing food item. In China and southeastern Asia, people eat porridge made of frog legs, which may seem gross for outsiders.

In Peru, Extracto de Rana ("frog juice") is believed to cure asthma, bronchitis, anemia, sluggishness and to be a healthy aphrodisiac and tonic drink. The living frogs are killed by banging them against tiles. The dead frog is peeled like husked corn. Frogs are squeezed (in other times and still in rural areas with the hands; otherwise with a household blender) together with white bean broth, honey, raw aloe vera, malt, maca (an Andean root also believed to boost stamina and sex drive) and herbs.

But now, the bullfrog may prolong your life, as revealed by a study made by a South Korean team and published in the journal "Bioresource Technology." The researchers led by Professor Kim Se-kwon of Pukyong University, in Busan, found a peptide with antioxidant action in the bullfrog skin.

The molecule speeds up the process of removing free radicals, chemicals connected with the aging process of human cells. Alpha-tocopherol, more commonly known as Vitamin E, represents the most active antioxidant in humans, being widely employed in medicines and health supplements. But the price of Vitamin E keeps rising because of boosting world demand.

"The new substance can provide an economic alternative to tocopherol. Because it is water-soluble, the substance may be consumed in much more diverse ways than the oil-soluble tocopherol. You may put it in soft drinks, for example. The newly found material is also 10 percent more efficient than tocopherol in curbing oxidisation," Kim told AFP.

Trinh nu hoang cung’s flower is white streaked with violet.
But the best way to distinguish the herb from other plants is by its DNA.

For decades a mysterious herb known as trinh nu hoang cung (royal virgin) has been coveted by those seeking a ‘magical’ cure for their ills and ailments. The plant was regarded as especially useful for longevity and curing diseased sexual organs, but now a Vietnamese scientist is unravelling the royal virgin’s secrets, to put the plant’s real medicinal qualities to better use.

The plant, whose scientific name is crinum latifolium (L.), was once a valuable herb reserved exclusively for royalty in feudal Viet Nam, but thanks to the work of a Vietnamese pharmacist, trinh nu hoang cung has become available to all in capsule form.

Dr Tram was the first scientist among many who studied the herb to succeed in transforming trinh nu hoang cung into modern capsule form, making its usage much easier and more effective.

On December 25, 2007, the Viet Nam’s Women Union awarded the prestigious Kovalevskaia Prize to Tram thanks to her work on the herb.

After two decades of hard work on the herb, Tram says she has been able to fulfil a personal dream: to bring a traditional Vietnamese herb into the realm of modern medicine to serve the Vietnamese people.

Sex scandal rock Australia

June 2006, a smiling Beth Morgan sans Paris Hilton sunglasses

Behind the enthusiasm and cheer this young mother was self-destructing. Her marriage was over because of a series of affairs, her financial world propped up by occasional gifts from shady businessmen and she was secretly under investigation by the Independent Commission Against Corruption.
The story behind the woman at the centre of this ugly tale of sex, bribes and early morning coffee on plastic chairs reads like a tragedy rather than an expose of greed.

Beth Mooney, as she was then, arrived at the Wollongong Council in May 2000 as a single woman and science graduate. She was appointed as a development processing officer - a frontline staff member among 39 in a department about to explode to cope with the property boom. Within four years the department on level 4 has all but doubled as the boom turned the South Coast into a goldmine of opportunity.

DAP Wishful Dream?

Democratic Action Party (DAP) Secretary General Lim Guan Eng announced on Wednesday (20 Feb) that he has decided to contest in Penang and hoped to sweep 14 state seats in the upcoming elections.
Lim said that Penang DAP leaders requested him to contest in Penang over the past year. After discussions with the Central Committee and an in-depth consideration, he decided to contest in Penang in the 12th general elections.
Lim said he decided to lead the Penang DAP in breaking the hegemony of Umno, and to check and balance Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition.

“Hopefully people of Penang will accept my request and join the movement to change the country,” said Lim.

However, he did not mention whether he is going to contest in Penang Island or Seberang Perai. Neither did he say whether he is going to fight for both parliamentary and state seats. He said a formal announcement would be made a few days later.


DAP chairman Karpal Singh is set to defend his Bukit Gelugor seat, instead of moving to Bagan following an outcry by members over the planned switch.

Full Lunar Eclipse on Feb20/21 2008

Path of the Moon through Earth's umbral and penumbral shadows
during the Total Lunar Eclipse of February 20, 2008.
(Eastern Standard Time)

A total eclipse of the Moon occurs during the night of Wednesday, February 20/21, 2008. The entire event is visible from South America and most of North America (on Feb. 20) as well as Western Europe, Africa, and western Asia (on Feb. 21). During a total lunar eclipse, the Moon's disk can take on a dramatically colorful appearance from bright orange to blood red to dark brown and (rarely) very dark gray.

Image Hosted by
Total eclipse of the moon

An eclipse of the Moon can only take place at Full Moon, and only if the Moon passes through some portion of Earth's shadow. The shadow is actually composed of two cone-shaped parts, one nested inside the other. The outer shadow or penumbra is a zone where Earth blocks some (but not all) of the Sun's rays. In contrast, the inner shadow or umbra is a region where Earth blocks all direct sunlight from reaching the Moon.

If only part of the Moon passes through the umbra, a partial eclipse is seen. However, if the entire Moon passes through the umbral shadow, then a total eclipse of the Moon occurs.

Ancient Chinese Myth about lunar eclipse.

Make a wish during lunar eclipse and it will come true. This is the ancient stories and myth about lunar eclipse. The phenomenon of " Total Lunar Eclipse" is due to that "the moon was eaten up by a dog from heaven". Very interesting folklore.

The Masculinity in Asian Men

Malaysian men rate sex and romance lowly when it comes to masculinity. To them, manhood means having a good job, taking care of the family and ensuring enough money.
The men of China, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan, on the other hand, think sex is more important.

Image Hosted by

According to a masculinity study on Asian men, urban Malaysian men rate sex and romance lowly – only 0.9% chose an active sex life while a mere 0.7% picked success with women as important indicators of their masculinity.
On the upside, Malaysian men are good providers with family as their priority.
Family and money – next to good jobs – are their top concerns and the main defining facets of their manhood – 24% of them rate having a good job as the most important thing in being a “man”.
The Masculinity in Asian Men research was conducted on 10, 934 men aged 20 to 75 years old in five Asian countries: China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Malaysia.
Sponsored by Bayer HealthCare, the study involved 3,000 Malaysian men and was completed in 2006 but the findings are yet to be published.
In other Asian countries, though, most men picked active sex life (89%), success with women (87.9%) and physical attractiveness (85%) as key indicators of masculinity.

Image Hosted by
The Masculinity Men?

The research was divided into three parts: men's attitude towards life events, sexual behaviour and their attitude towards erectile dysfunction.
The findings, nevertheless, reinforced the male stereotypes in the individual participating countries, specifically in their concept of masculinity: the Taiwanese and Japanese quoted being a man of honour as the most important quality, the Chinese defined it as having control over one's life while for South Koreans, it was having an active sex life.

Does Size Really Matter to you?

Yes, the penis size does matter. The bigger it is, the more fulfilling the sex is. In fact any woman who doesn't like a bigger than normal penis size, would be considered a rarity in todays world. Though they all may say that it doesn't matter, they often discuss the mens' sizes when they are in each others company.

A comprehensive study conducted by sex researchers suggests that the average penis size ranges from 4" to 7" in erect condition. Women often complaint that mini sized organs do not satisfy them. Although your lover might not openly admit it to you, but the truth is that when it comes to penis size, most women love a big penis. First of all what is the definition of the 'big' that most women refer to. A large number of women refer to 'big' as being above seven inches long and five inches in girth.

Top three causes of sexual frustration for women:

1) small penis size
2) premature ejaculation
3) impotence

It seems due to the caring nature of women they seem to assist their lovers in solving other issues in their lives and their relationship but when it comes to the issue of their lover's penile size they tend to hide under the statement of 'it is not the size that matters but what you do with it.'

Reasons that women tend to prefer a bigger size penis:

1) a bigger penis is capable of physically stimulating the sexual pleasure centers which are located both around the walls of the vagina and deep in the vagina.
2) a big penis is that it excites her and makes her much more open to orgasms.
3) a large penis makes a lot of women sexually excited before foreplay even begins.
4) to achieve multiple orgasms

Although you could assist your lover in achieving orgasms by stimulating her clitoris, such orgasms are short-lived when compared to orgasms achieved by the combination of deep penetration of the vagina and stimulation of her clitoris due to the thickness of a bigger sex organ.

In an anonymous survey carried out in 2004, it revealed that 85% of women wished it were possible for their lovers to increase their penile size. Meaning what most women want is a bigger penis size. It also revealed that such women have not told their lovers that their penile size is not enough for them. It seems most women are sensitive to their lovers and don't want to hurt his feelings because they feel that a man is stuck with whatever size of genitals he was born with.

Edison Chen & Gillian Chung - Right Here Waiting

Edison Chen & Gillian Chung - Right Here Waiting

At least eight people have been arrested in connection to the spread of lewd photos of actor Edison Chen and other female stars on the web.

The police raided the eLite Multimedia shop in their search for the source of the sex photos and took away four computers for investigation. A 29-year-old male ex-employee was arrested at his home, the eighth suspect to be nabbed so far. His home computer was also taken.

Of the eight, four are out on bail. Two of those still held are reportedly, like the latest suspect, working in the computer industry.
Oriental Daily said shop workers near the computer store claimed they had seen Chen going in and out of the shop.

Reports had earlier said Chen had sent his notebook to a company for repair last year and his photos were secretly copied. But the police have not confirmed if the sex photos of Chen, and actresses Cecilia Cheung, Gillian Chung and Bobo Chan—circulated on the web last week—were real or fake.

Meanwhile, Chen broke his silence on the scandal and issued an apology through a video posted on

“The lives of many innocent people have been affected by this malicious and criminal conduct, and in this regard I am filled with pain, hurt and frustration. I hereby use this opportunity to apologise to anyone who has been affected by this strange, strange ordeal,” Chen said.

He pleaded to those who have downloaded the images to help the “wounded heal their wounds” by not forwarding and to destroy the photos immediately.

He apologised profusely, saying that those photos were stolen from him, i.e. admitting that those photos were his, and they were never meant for anyone else’s eyes.

he has announced that he would retire from HK’s entertainment after completing his current assignments. After which, he would go out of HK to do social work. When would he be back? He says he has no idea. He admits that he has failed as an idol and asks for everyone’s forgiveness, and that he has never been trying to escape facing everyone since the photos leaked. He emphasised that he has cooperated with the police from Day 1 and would continue assisting them in the investigation of this case. Of course, he urged everyone to stop blowing it up.



Edison quit after being publicly shamed when sex photos belonging to him leaked onto the internet in January, sparking the entertainment industry’s biggest scandal in recent memory.
Edison has not, however, made a comeback – the music video for Josie Ho's ( 何超儀 ) "Repay" < 償還 > that he features in was filmed last December.
The song is part of Josie's latest album, Elastic Rock, which was released on 15 Apr.
In the video, Edison features as a puppet that Josie manipulates in love scenes.

Edison won't testify

Hong Kong - Actor Edison Chen, who was at the centre of a sex photo scandal earlier this year, has refused to return from the United States to testify at a trial linked to the saga, a report said.
The 27-year-old will not appear as a witness at the trial of a man accused of distributing photos of Chen's sex acts with female starlets, South China Morning Post reported yesterday.
His refusal has stalled the trial of computer technician Sze Ho Chun, 23, as the prosecution said it would have to apply for a higher court's permission to obtain evidence from Chen in the US.

The prosecutor said the permission would allow a Hong Kong judge to take evidence in the US and assess the credibility of the Canadian-born star.
Explicit photographs of Chen with the stars, downloaded from his laptop which he had sent for repair, flooded the Internet earlier this year.
Sze was arrested in his computer store and has pleaded not guilty to obtaining access to a computer with a view of making dishonest gain for himself or another.
Chen's management company said the actor has promised to assist the investigation of the case but not to return to testify in court, the report added.

Disgraced Hong Kong star steps back into limelight to testify in B.C. court

VANCOUVER -- Hong Kong movie actor and pop icon Edison Chen, whose soaring career was shattered by sexually explicit photos on the Internet, will be in a B.C. courtroom this morning to provide videotaped testimony for a coming trial in China of the computer technician allegedly responsible for some of the postings.
The scandal, that also tarnished the reputation of several female starlets well known in Hong Kong, has been closely watched by the entertainment industry in Asia, as well as so-called netizens who are concerned about legal restrictions on the Internet.
Mr. Chen, 28, has not appeared in public since last February, when he apologized for taking the photos of his sex partners and announced his retreat from the entertainment business. He was not available yesterday for an interview. Photographers and reporters were outside the River Rock Hotel in Richmond throughout the weekend, where Mr. Chen and his lawyers were believed to be staying.


In a court hearing earlier in the week, Hong Kong actor Edison Chen revealed that some 40 obscene photos were taken by a female celebrity and given to him as a 'present'.
The case, in which obscene photos of Chen and four other Hong Kong female celebrities were seen involved in sex acts, is currently being heard in Canada, Shin Min Daily News reported.
According to the Chinese paper, Chen testified in court that 40 of the hundreds of photos that were posted on the Internet were taken by one female celebrity during one of their trysts.
The pictures were then burned on a DVD and given to him for his "personal appreciation". Chen also admitted to downloading the 40 pictures onto his computer.
The actor also told the court that the pictures were given to him by the female celebrity out of her own will, and that it was only meant for the both of them. The other women involved in the case had no knowledge of this, Chen testified.
He also stressed that the obscene photos were not meant to be shared with any third party, and that none of the people involved had given the photos away or spoke of their sexual encounters.
This, Chen reasoned, was why the photos, which existed since 2001, were not known to the public until February 2008. The pictures were taken between 2001 and 2006, Chen said.
Chen also denied accusations that he transferred the obscene photos from his computer to his mobile phone and showed the pictures to others.
During the hearing, Chen testified that he bought four Apple computers from the eLiTeMULTIMEDIA store in Chung Wan, Hong Kong.
One of these computers was the Apple laptop in which the obscene photos were extracted when the former action star took it back to the store for repairs. Chen said that the notebook computer remained at the store for a few days.
However, Chen told the court that the obscene pictures were already deleted before he sent the computer in. But he admitted that he did not know deleted files could still be extracted from a computer by persons with the knowhow.
Lianhe Wanbao reported Chen confirming the identities of the four female celebrities involved in the case as Cecilia Chung, Gillian Chung, Bobo Chan and Rachel Ngan.
The Chinese evening daily said that Chen was initially reluctant to testify to reveal their identities, speaking in English, "I'm determined to protect their innocence. They have suffered enough."


Hong Kong actress Cecilia Cheung has broken her silence about the accident of Internet sex photos scandal.
She was lashings of pop star who took the revealing photos. Cecilia Cheung was involved in a relationship with Edison Chen for 3 Years before the naughty picture scandal.

Cheung said she decided to break her silence after Chen gave proof earlier this week in a Canadian court in the case of Sze Ho-Chun. And She charged that a computer technician who done this illegal work to publish the explicit photos online.
Chen was one of the biggest stars of Asia's film and Music. But his career destroyed by the appearance of hundreds of the sex photos.

UPDATE: 6 MAR 2009

Actress-singer Gillian Chung will have her say about actor Edison Chen on Saturday (7 Mar 2009) when an interview is aired, marking her comeback a year after the sex photo scandal which enveloped them broke.
TVB general manager Stephen Chan is interviewing her this week for his show Be My Guest and she is expected, like actress Cecilia Cheung, to talk about the scandal, Apple Daily said yesterday.The interview is important for Chung to salvage her image as she has been criticised for smiling and saying 'I was naive and silly' at a press conference shortly after the photos came out.

Gillian Chung's Interview Records:

It was Love at first Sight with Edison Chen

Stephen Chan gave Ah Gil a "plain sail boat" with many toy piggys, the meaning is for Ah Gil to get a fresh start in the New Year of the Ox

Because of the photo scandal, Gillian Chung was affected greatly and had to put her work on hiatus for a year. Deciding to do an interview with "Be My Guest", it will be the first step in returning to the entertainment circle. Gillian talked about her experience in the past year and often teared up, she frankly said that her relationship with Edison Chen has been dragging for 5 years. Good sister Ah Sa (Charlene Choi) has once told her that Edison is not a good guy, but she didn't listen and continued to love him.

She reveals that after the exposure of the pictures, she and Cecilia Cheung were the same, no choice but to end their contact with Edison. Ah Gil describes that before when taking these pictures, she was already worried that one day the "bomb" will explode, so she would often have a black face. In the past she thought of "suicide", "marrying someone" and now she just hopes to find a boyfriend that could protect her.

Ah Gil will eventually have to face the media, she felt very afraid, but no matter if she's no longer accepted by everyone, she insists that she will not give up.

Hong Kong's Wenweipo, published an entertainment program especially for her visit on "Be My Guest", highlighting the important contents during the interview:

Chan = Stephen Chan
Gil = Gillian Chung

Chan: After the incident with Edison Chen exposed, almost a year ago, can you fully face the incident now?

Gil: I calmed down a bit, but... actually if you want me to mention it, I really don't want to, but I never wanted to hide anything, its just that no one ever gave me the opportunity to speak."

Chan: How did you know Edison Chen?

Gil: I knew him before I entered the industry, he was a friend of a friend. (When did you two start a relationship?) It was right after I joined my company. (Was it because you two were filming an MV [女校男生] together?) Actually before that, we already started. (Within all of your past boyfriends, is he the one that you maintained a relationship with the longest?) You can say that, most liked was to drag the relationship, then reconcile again, already went through that for 4 to 5 years. (In between the relationship, did you date someone else at the same time?) I often stayed with him, I didn't have anyone else because he influenced me deeply. Every time I'm with him, it was hard for me to put my feelings into another relationship. (Was it love at first sight?) I think so. First, he really understands how to love people, can make you very happy. Even if it's just one text message, I will be really happy. (What do you like most about him?) I don't know, love cannot be explained. (How does he love you?) Very small thing, maybe....there is a period of time where he doesn't see me, but one text message will make me very happy."

UPDATE: 12 Mar 2009

HONG KONG, March 12 — A bullet and a warning letter aimed at the Hong Kong pop star at the centre of a sex photos scandal has been sent in the post from the United States to a local TV station, police said today.
The letter, written in English, warned singer-actor Edison Chen to disappear from public life and said it was a final warning to him to take his personal safety seriously.

Chen, 28, was embroiled in a scandal last year when photographs of him romping naked with a number of young starlets were circulated over the internet.
The explicit photographs were apparently downloaded from his laptop when he took it in for repairs, and a number of people were arrested for allegedly stealing and distributing the images.
The anonymous letter containing a bullet arrived at Hong Kong’s Cable TV network from the US yesterday afternoon. Police took away the bullet and letter for examination.

Chen stayed out of the public eye after the scandal broke in February last year, but appeared in court in Vancouver last month to testify in the trial of a computer technician accused over the photo scandal.
The singer-actor has said he will not return to Hong Kong for the court proceedings because he fears for his personal safety and will testify only by video-link.

Victims of the photo scandal, including pop singer Cecilia Cheung, have in recent weeks given TV interviews hitting out at Chen, accusing him of lying and failing to apologise for his actions.
Millions of people viewed the photographs after they were uploaded onto websites at the end of January 2008, causing massive embarrassment and ending the careers of some of the starlets involved.

UPDATE: 7 APR 2009

Computer technician Sze Ho-chun (L) and his mother wearing masks walk out of the court in Hong Kong on April 6, 2009. Sze Ho-chun pleaded not guilty in a Hong Kong court to illegally copying and distributing more than 1,000 photos of a Hong Kong actor performing sex acts with a string of starlets.
Sze Ho-chun, an employee of computer shop Elite Multimedia, saw the images on Edison Chen's laptop when the Canadian-born singer-actor brought it in for repair work in 2006, prosecutor Hayson Tse told the Kowloon City Magistracy.
Sze then copied the images on to a computer server which was connected to the Internet, Tse said.
At the start of his 10-day trial, Sze pleaded not guilty to three counts of obtaining access to a computer with a view to dishonest gain for himself or another.
The prosecution said that Sze saved 1,300 sex photos of Chen and other local celebrities on a compact disc and passed the disc to another of his customers. He also told the customer how to access the images on the Internet.

UPDATE: 14 May 2009

The Hong Kong computer technician convicted of stealing and distributing racy photos of Chinese-Canadian actor Edison Chen will be spending the better part of a year in jail, a Hong Kong court ruled on Wednesday.

Sze Ho-Chun, 24, has been sentenced to prison for 8½ months. In April, he was convicted of three counts of accessing a computer for dishonest gains.

In 2006, Chen — a Vancouver-born and raised actor and singer who rose to fame in Hong Kong — dropped his laptop computer off at a shop for repairs.

On the computer, Sze found, unlocked and copied more than 1,300 sexually explicit images of Chen with a bevy of female Hong Kong celebrities and distributed the photos to others via CD. The racy images were eventually posted online in early 2008 and sparked a sex scandal in the socially conservative Chinese entertainment industry.

The scandal damaged the careers of several of the stars implicated, including Chen, who apologized for the incident and has taken an indefinite leave from his career, retreating home to Vancouver.

HONG KONG actor Edison Chen, whose pictures of him having sex with various starlets shook the Chinese entertainment world, has been voted the most “Extreme Bad Man” in the industry.

Sin Chew Daily reported that the 28-year-old actor-cum-singer was picked based on the scandal which broke more than a year ago when the pictures surfaced on the Internet.

Chen, who was recently in Malaysia to open a clothing store, obtained 33% of the votes for the Top 10 worst male celebrity sent in by listeners of a radio station in Singapore.

In second place was Andy Lau, who was chosen for lying about his secret marriage with Malaysian ex-beauty queen Carol Choo.

Malaysian “drunken street-fighter” Gary Chaw was in the fourth place.

Faeces thrown at Edison at Xmas party

HONG Kong actor Edison Chen, whose pictures in various compromising positions with several female stars circulated in the Internet last year, had faeces thrown at him at a Christmas party in Hong Kong.

Sin Chew Daily reported that a man held a bucket of faeces and went up to the stage hoping to empty it on him.

Fortunately, Chen saw itcoming and managed to quickly move aside.

He ended up with only drops of faeces on his clothes.

The incident shook the Chinese entertainment world just like the exposure of Chen’s sex photos scandal last year. The man was arrested.

UPDATE: 25 JUN 2010

A Hong Kong magazine recently reported that Edison had apparently dumped Vincy for new squeeze, Fiona Tong.
Fiona Tong is the daughter of the Miss Hong Kong 1982, Isabella Kau. She is 18 years old. And there are rumors that Fiona had a relation with Edison Chen. They had started dating each other. And Fiona blindly trusts him. Edison daily send her 30 messages in which he tells her that he is missing her a lot.

Fiona was even seen at Edison's clothing label's (Clot) anniversary party when Vincy was not present.
When Edison caught wind of the report, he immediately issued a statement through East Asia, and denied any form of relationship with Fiona.
"That was a corporate event so I'm not the only one sending out invitations; she's probably invited by another friend. I don't understand why she became my 'girlfriend' when all she did was to appear at the party."
When quizzed on his relationship with Vincy, Edison replied that things have been going on very well between him and Vincy and tried to put an end to the media's speculations of his relationship with Fiona.
"I respect the media's work but please stop 'assigning' girlfriends to me.

Edison Chen: "I was too straight, too stupid and believed people."

BEIJING: Weeks after he admitted to having once dated 16-year-old model Cammi Tse, Hong Kong singer-actor Edison Chen finally broke his silence over the matter, during an appearance at MTV China's 2011 Style Awards held at the Beijing National Stadium on Wednesday, reported Chinese media.

The 31-year-old star left Hong Kong following his admission and did not respond to any media queries about how the intimate photos of him and Tse came to be, or confirm if he had sent Tse racy text messages as the tabloids had alleged.

However, Chen stepped forward on his own accord to speak about the matter when he met the press on Wednesday.

"I won't answer any questions today, but I have something to say to everyone. Previously, a lot of things have happened to me and I want to explain some things to people.

"Half a year ago, seven months ago, I broke up with my girlfriend Vincy [Yeung] and I was actually unhappy, very lost, so I found the wrong outlet to make myself happy," said Chen.

"This time, I did wrong; I was too straight, too stupid and believed people.

"If I have disappointed my supporters, I want to apologise to them and hope they can forgive me," Chen continued.

"When you look at people, you need to look at [their] present, future, don't always keep looking at the past."

That might be a tall order especially since Chen has such a colourful past - he was once embroiled in a sex photo scandal which involved top stars like Gillian Chung and Cecilia Cheung in 2008.

UPDATE: 23 MAY 2012

Edison Chen invited Joyce Wu to his hotel

There seems to be no end to Edison Chen's philandering ways as his provocative text messages to Chinese actress Joyce Wu came to light recently.

An insider tip-off claimed that the Hong Kong actor who was once romantically linked with various actresses and models such as Cammie Tse, Suki Wong and Jeana Ho, took the initiative to ask for Joyce's number after working with her in a movie and asked the actress to meet in his hotel for a few times.

A screencap of Edison's text message exchange with the actress was leaked online and the 31-year-old used "there's not much to film tomorrow" as an excuse to meet Joyce at his hotel. Afraid that Joyce's manager would know that they are in contact with each other, Edison instructed Joyce that she "cannot even tell your friends" about their meeting.

The 31-year-old reportedly sent a message to another lady in the crew and through her, suggested a "threesome" to Joyce.

However, some netizens pointed that the messages that were leaked online were entirely in Chinese, a contrast to the exchange leaked between the actor and Cammie which was in English. It is speculated that this might be a deliberate attempt to bring attention to the pair in order to promote their movie.

Meanwhile, Joyce made a response on her microblog regarding the matter, expressing that "as it has already happened, I can only apologize. It is hard to get to where he is now, and I don't want anyone to get hurt. After another two to three days, he will still be Edison, I will still be myself, and everyone will forget about me soon. I will continue to work hard!"

Edison's management has yet to respond to said rumours.
