Designer jumps on Villa Nabila bandwagon by coming up with T-shirts


JOHOR BARU: A designer has jumped on the Villa Nabila bandwagon by coming up with T-shirts inspired by the widely-reported incident of the boy who "went missing" after visiting an abandoned bungalow in Danga Bay.

Ahmad Fatah Zubir said Malaysians, especially Johoreans, had been following the boy's mysterious disappearance closely even after he was found later.

The 30-year-old said Villa Nabila had become more famous and he decided to ride on the bungalow's fame to make the T-shirts.

"The T-shirts come only in black colour, printed with witty lines to poke fun at the whole incident," he said at his shop called The iPrintings in Taman Perbadanan Islam here yesterday.

He hoped that his work would attract people who were into supernatural events.

"Some people even went as far as saying that the boy was taken by ghosts or spirits and this made Villa Nabila the talk of the town overnight.

"People have been going there and taking pictures, thinking they might see a ghost, and that amuses me," he said.

Besides T-shirts, he has also made more than 50 designs on pants and baseball caps.

It was reported that 16-year-old Mohammad Izzat Izzudin Hussin went to the bungalow with his friends last Saturday.

His mother Norhayati Mohamad, 39, filed a missing persons report after he did not return home.

He was found on Tuesday after spending a night at his girlfriend's house. The bungalow was listed by travel portal Expedia as one of the five most haunted places in Malaysia.

Ping Sieu's father dies of blood infection


KLUANG: The father of MCA vice-president Gan Ping Sieu, Gan Chong Chun (pic), passed away on Nov 19. He was 74.

Chong Chun, who was a lifelong MCA activist, died of blood infection.

He is survived by six children and 14 grandchildren. He was buried at a Chinese association cemetery in Kluang yesterday.

Ping Sieu described his father as an easygoing man who enjoyed his daily golf game.

"One thing he taught me at 16 when I was organising a camping trip for my classmates was that to be a leader, you must undertake risks and be the first to assume responsibility for all decisions, and the last to enjoy the fruits of any venture.

"That was my first lesson in leadership," he said.

Ping Sieu said his father involved himself in NGOs, schools, temples and sport bodies in Kluang.

MCA leaders and members, including party president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek and his deputy Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai, were present to pay their last respects to Chong Chun.
