KUALA TERENGGANU: Under-wear off – that is one of the conditions for guys who want to attend a mega sex party on New Year’s Eve that is scheduled to be held in Johor Baru.
The second condition is that girls must wear only G-string panties and be prepared to take them off after midnight to usher in the new year.
It is learnt that invitations enclosed in New Year greeting cards are being distributed here. Upon opening the greeting card, there is a note with this statement: “Are you below 40? If you are, then browse this web address and you won’t regret it.”
On the website are three handphone numbers for those who want to attend the sex party to contact. The Star managed to get in touch with one of the contact persons and the woman who answered the call identified herself as Ida.
She claimed to be the organiser of the sex party and she expected 350 revellers to attend the event.
Ida then demanded a deposit of RM250 as entrance fee for each participant and the amount had to be banked into her account number.
“Are you a male? Don’t worry, we have 200-over women there for you, including those from Batam (Indonesia) but you must be prepared to go naked, you know,” she said. Ida said there were also several female students from colleges in Kuala Lumpur and Malacca who had confirmed their attendance.
“We need more males for the party. We are short of men. Don’t worry about partners, there will be plenty of them on that night,” she said. When asked about the venue of the party, Ida replied, “You bank in RM100 first, we will send all the details. The balance must be deposited before we confirm your name.
“We will prepare the liquor and accommodation but you have to pay separately for these, but they will cost only a nominal sum,” she said.
Ida also divulged that the party would be held at a secluded area fronting the beach and gave an assurance that there would be scouts stationed at all entry points to the venue to alert the revellers in case there is a raid.
“The party will go on all night long, and you are free to do whatever you wish to do,” she said. Ida also recommended that guys should bring along condoms.
“With HIV on the increase, the organiser can’t guarantee it will be AIDS-free, so it’s better to be safe,” she laughed. However, Ida suspected something amiss when more questions were posed to her.
“Are you from Special Branch?” she asked, before ending the call.
Attempts to contact the other numbers were futile.
In JOHOR BARU, Johor CID chief Senior Asst Comm (II) Amer Awal urged the public not to be involved in the party and said the organisers could be con men.
“Why would they demand money before they reveal the location? In the end, they will probably just run away with the money.
“We will be investigating the matter. The police will also inform the state religious department and the local council to be on the watch-out for any suspicious activities,” he said. He said those with information could contact the nearest police station or the police hotline at 07-221 2999.

Hong Kong artiste Leo Ku will be ushering in the New Year with his fans at Genting’s Arena of Stars.
Following his Magic Moments 2007 tour concert at Stadium Merdeka, Kuala Lumpur, last Christmas, Leo Ku is back this year to lead fans to a rousing countdown at the Arena of Stars, Genting – City of Entertainment, on New Year’s Eve.
Starting off in showbiz as a TVB entertainment news presenter and host of Jade Solid Gold music show in 1992, Ku turned singer in 1994 with his Cantopop album Explanation of Love.
Actor and Cantopop singer Leo Ku, named Favourite Artiste of Hong Kong at MTV Asia Awards 2008, will hold a concert in Genting on New Year’s Eve.
The 36-year-old entertainer has come a long way since becoming the first singer to win all four newcomer gold awards from Hong Kong’s radio and TV stations.
He was also named Favourite Artiste of Hong Kong at MTV Asia Awards 2008, which was held at Genting’s Arena of Stars in August.
Ku is one of the few Cantopop singers who uses falsetto to perfection; he has been commended by Taiwan-based R&B star David Tao. Ku has also been referred to as one of the New Four Heavenly Kings – along with Hacken Lee, Andy Hui and Edmond Leung – by none other than evergreen Hong Kong entertainer Alan Tam.
Apart from his base in Hong Kong, his concert tours have taken him to Malaysia, Singapore, Australia, Canada and China.
The singer-cum-actor has more than 30 albums and a dozen feature films (including voiceovers for animations) under his belt.
His smash hit album Jade Solid Gold, named after a popular music show of the same name, hit double platinum (100,000 copies) two months after its release, and became one of Hong Kong’s top 10 albums in 2005.
The theme song of the album, Solid Gold Hits, is also one of Ku’s most popular songs.
Leo Ku New Year’s Eve Live in Genting is organised by Genting – City of Entertainment. The one-night show will be staged at the Arena of Stars on Dec 31 at 8pm.
Tickets are selling at RM100, RM170, RM250, RM350 and RM470. The first 1,000 tickets purchased are entitled to a 20% discount (except VIP tickets).

Yonex Sunrise BWF World Super Series Masters Finals Results
KOTA KINABALU (DEC 21, 2008): Malaysia’s Datuk Lee Chong Wei finally lived up to his top billing when he won the men’s singles at the Yonex Sunrise BWF World Super Series Masters Finals at Likas Sports Complex today.
The world No.1, who entered the tournament with the dubious honour of never winning a tournament when he was the top seed, put an end to that hoodoo when he trounced Denmark’s Peter Gade 21-8, 21-16 in only 33 minutes.
It was a grand day for Malaysia as the ended the world richest badminton tournament with three titles as Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong and Wong Pei Tty-Chin Eei Hui won the men’s and women’s doubles respectively.
Chong Wei pocketed US$40,000 in prize money in the richest badminton tournament in the world that offered US$500,000 in cash prizes.
Today’s win was his second straight game win over the Dane in the tournament. He had beaten Gade 21-19, 21-17 in a Group A match earlier in the week.
The Dane paid fitting tribute to his conqueror and said: “At present, Chong Wei and Lin Dan (of China) are the two best players in the world and in a class of their own.”
Chong Wei said the final was surprisingly easy, especially the first game but the gritty Gade put up a stiffer resistance in the second game.
The match took only 33 minutes.
“I knew Peter would come back fighting in the second game after my easy win in the first. But I had prepared myself for a three-set game encounter but it did not materialise.
“I am extremely happy and it is very satisfying to win my first title as a world number one. Now that I have broken the jinx, I am looking with confidence for the new season.
“My target next year is the All England and the World championships. I will compete in the Malaysian Open next month but I will skip the Korean Open to give myself two months to prepare for the two important tournaments,” said Chong Wei.
“After the Olympics I did not train much but still played in several tournaments. I skipped the Hong Kong Open to prepare myself for the Super Series Finals.
Malaysia’s second title came when Kien Keat-Boon Heong finally won their first major of the year to end the 2008 season on a high.
The Malaysians, who have been through a bad spell following their meteoric rise last year, were clearly delighted to have beaten South Korea’s Jung Jae Sung-Lee Yong Dae 21-18, 21-14 in only 37 minutes.
“I’m extremely happy that we have finally won a major title this year. It has been frustrating but I think we are finally back on track and we can look forward to 2009 with great confidence,” said a relieved Kien Keat.
“I think one reason for our re-emergence as a top pair is that we trust each other and play more as a combination instead as individuals.
“We have also been very relaxed in this tournament. I have gone swimming, had walks on the beach and have just enjoyed playing without any pressure.
“Maybe that is the key for us to continue doing well, Taking it easy and not worrying about the results.”
Boon Heong echoed Kien Keat’s sentiments and also said he hopes this win will help them regain their status as the world’s top pair.
“We hope this win will help us next season as we are gunning for the world title. We have not had much training recently but we will make sure we get enough of court time if we are to do just as well next year.”
Malaysia’s third title came when Pei Tty-Eei Hui outclassed Indonesia’s Vita Marissa-Liliyana Natsir 21-15, 22-20 in 34 minutes.
“I am feeling very very tired but we are really happy to have ended the season on a high note. If China had been here we would still be ranked number one but the expectations would have been different.
It has been a very good year for us. We will try to maintain our performance and achievements,” said Pei Tty.
Eei Hui said: “I need to improve my physical fitness. I did not train much in the last two months after coming down with knee and ankle injuries.
“Overall we are more steady now compared to the start of the season. The Malaysian Open will be different as the Chinese and the Koreans will be there. It will be a good test for us.”
It was double heartbreak for Lilyana as she also lost the mixed doubles with Nova Widianto.
The Indonesians squandered four match points against Denmark’s Thomas Laybourn-Kamilla Rytter Juhl and lost 21-19, 18-21, 22-20 in 62 minutes.
“I was quite relaxed really. I didn’t feel any pressure as we had nothing to lose. We had given our best but I was determined to win the next point to regain the service as I was quite confident of getting a few more point to edge closer to the Indonesians.
“I noticed that Nova was a little nervous and I think it showed as he and Liliyana made several mistakes towards the end.”
Laybourn added: “To win five points in a row is quite amazing, especially at such a crucial stage. The crowd was fantastic as they supported both sets of players and I’m delighted we have captured the title.”
Hong Kong’s Zhou Mi gained revenge for her group loss to team mate Wang Chen (HKG 3) when she won the women’s singles finals of the Yonex Sunrise BWF World Super Series Masters Finals 21-14, 21-18 in only 32 minutes.
Zhou Mi took home US$40,000 for her win.
“The disappointment of not playing in the Olympics was there but I put that aside and looked to other tournaments as badminton is my first love,” said Zhou Mi.
“My love for badminton is second to none. It kept me going and played in other tournaments some of which I won. That was satisfying.
“I lost to Wang Chen in the group match but as I said earlier, I got adjusted to the local environment and my game improved. This was proven in my win in the final.
“My next tournament is the Malaysian Open but I am taking one tournament at a time. But I will be there.”
The world number one was the top seed and the crowd’s favourite right from day one of the tournament which got underway on Thursday.
Her top priority next year is the World Championships.
“I have never won the world title and I will go for it,” added Zhou Mi who said she has some nagging injuries but she would rather not reveal to the public.

“Today we beat them (Mohd Zakry Abdul Latif-Mohd Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari) in straight games.
“Reaching the final is more than we expected here. Now it is the title, hopefully we can achieve that. If we do that it will be our first big title after winning the Macau Open which is a GP event.” – Koo Kien Keat
“It has been good going for us in the Super Series. We skipped only the Japan Open after the (Beijing) Olympics and competed in all other tournaments. It is very tiring but we have been having a good time here.” – Tan Boon Heong (Malaysia)
Lee Yong Dae-Jung Jae Sung Bt Markis Kido-Hendrawan Setiawan 22-20, 15-21, 21-16 (53 Minutes)
“We are on a winning streak and we want to try a little harder. We didn’t play well in the first two games but we were determined to try harder in the rubber game. We had a pretty good result against the Malaysian pair in China We all know each other very well and it all depends on our condition.” – Lee Yong Dae
“We have played each other four times, we have won two and lost but we just slightly ahead of them. It will be close tomorrow.” – Jung Jae Sung
“No excuses, they were simply too good today. We tried our best but they had the upperhand.” – Markis Kido
“The wind in the stadium affected us a little bit but the crowd was fantastic. It was just like playing in Indonesia where the crowd is fanatical. I will be back for the Malaysian Open. Our main focus next year is the All England as we have already won the Olympics and world titles.” – Hendrawan Setiawan
WOMEN DOUBLES SECOND SEMI-FINAL
Wong Pei Tty-Chin Eei Hui beat Ha Jung Eun-Kim Ming Jung 14-21, 21-19, 21-17 (53 minutes)
“We still haven’t played our best game as we are unable to read the wind direction. When trailing in the third set, we decided to be cautious, played safe shots and only attack when we had the opportunity.
“Tomorrow’s final will be tough. In our last meeting at the Japan Open, we beat the Indonesians. But they will not be easy opponents and we must be patient if we want to win.” – Wong Pei Tty
“Our performance today is better than yesterday. But I am still not satisfied and I hope tomorrow will be better.
“We didnt panic when we were trailing, but just focused on getting one point at a time. We are getting used to the crowd. They are giving us inspiration to push further in the match.” – Chin Eei Hui
