Hey, my beloved hometown is featured on international news! Who'dathunk? Too bad the news isn't exactly good. It's about unmarried couples being fined for holding hands in public.

It was getting pretty heated up on local press especially since the people fined were not even Muslim, and since when did mere holding hands become 'indecent behaviour' anyway.. didn't expect foreign press to pick it up. If this is any indication of where our society's values are heading, imagine the censorship on romantic movies and tv shows! Anyway, there's a related article on The Star.
