THE temptations of a luxury apartment proved too much for one 26-year-old television repairer, who found himself under arrest for theft. But instead of the usual haul of jewellery and electrical goods, the repairman, Chan, had stolen two bras. According to Tin Tin Daily, his female customer noticed the first bra had gone missing from the bathroom when Chan left the flat to 'fetch some extra tools'. And after he had finished the job, the woman noticed that more of her underwear had disappeared. She followed the man out of the flat and asked to inspect his toolkit, where she uncovered her missing lingerie. number crunching A FLAT-OWNER, whose apartment mysteriously migrated from the 15th to the 18th floor when the developer deleted 'unlucky' floor numbers from the apartment block, is suing the property company. He claims that the renumbering of his apartment nullifies the contract and is asking for a refund and compensation. The Oriental Daily reported that the developer had deleted the unlucky fourth, 13th and 14th floors of the 24-storey block. milk of human kindness A GENEROUS breast-feeding mother provided milk for several babies when their mothers ran out of formula milk during a recent 37-hour delay in Anchorage airport. According to Apple Daily, the women - passengers on a Cathay Pacific flight from Toronto to Hong Kong which was grounded by technical faults - did not have enough food for their children because of the extended stopover. 'There were six or seven babies on the plane and all the mothers ran out of powdered milk and nappies ... and nobody cared,' said one passenger, Mrs So. Fortunately, the public-spirited Mrs Lau managed to produce several bottles of breast milk for the hungry babies, although her own daughter had to make do with two bottles of diluted milk. daylight robbery TWO men caught sawing off a car's steering-wheel and gearstick told police they were 'dismantling' the vehicle as a favour for a friend. Sing Pao reported that police spotted Siu X-on, 23, and Kwok X-fai, 24, acting suspiciously at 5.50 am on San Shan Road in To Kwa Wan. The pair, who were arrested for theft, said they were removing the parts for a friend and were hoping to complete the job before breakfast. death watch A PAIR of smartly dressed men who were spotted by an Apple Daily reporter outside the emergency room at Queen Margaret Hospital turned out to have an ulterior motive. The reporter, who had thought the men were there to see a patient, was alarmed to see them rush up to people whose loved ones had just died. Rather than grieving relatives, the two were funeral parlour salesmen touting for business. dog and bone fight A PROSTITUTE, or 'public relations' girl, found a new use for her mobile phone - as a weapon. Miss Cheng, 33, lost her temper when her client, a 33-year-old man named Leung, failed to pay for services rendered in a Yau Ma Tei love hotel. According to Sing Pao, she picked up her phone in a fit of rage and started hitting Leung with it. He defended himself by hitting her back with his own phone. The fight continued in the lobby where hotel staff put a stop to it by grabbing their means of communication. royal visit SEVERELY burned victims of the Pat Sin Range hill-fire had a special guest recently, when the 'queen' turned up at the Prince of Wales Hospital in Sha Tin to present them with a bunch of flowers. Oriental Daily reported that the middle-aged woman, dressed in red, was seen outside their hospital ward with a large bouquet. But when she was asked whether she was a family member, she replied, 'I'm Her Royal Highness.' Staff thanked her for the flowers and gently ushered out the woman - a patient herself, in a mental hospital.
