The family of 12-year-old Rachel Ho, one of the faces of the Sabah quake tragedy, will be channelling all donations from her wake to Malaysian mountain guides who helped the staff and students after the disaster. "The money would go a long way for the Malaysian guides who now have no income and still have families to feed. It is our way of thanking them for risking their lives to help the students and teachers of Tanjong Katong Primary School after the disaster," he added.

I'm frankly getting quite p*ssed off with the level of dumbassery in Malaysia because of this whole "naked-on-the-mountain" fiasco. They're saying because some foreigners ran around on top of the mountain without their underwear on, the spirit of the mountain got angry and retaliated by causing a f**king massive earthquake. A bunch of dudes and kids died, and so now they're saying that the big bad white tourists should be held responsible.

2 female Canadian tourists, 23 year-old Lindsey Peterson and 22 year-old Danielle Peterson, were arrested and prevented from leaving Malaysia after they were identified as being part of a group of tourists who stripped themselves nude and took pictures of themselves as a sacred site on Mount Kinabalu, Sabah. Malaysian police reported that on 30th May, the two women were part of a group of 10 tourists who stripped off their clothes and posed naked at the 8KM point of a 2 day hiking trip up the mountain, which locals say is a sacred site protected by their local deity. The tourists ignored the pleas of their local guide to stop, and openly insulted the guide for trying to stop them.
