In recent months, unsavoury comments about their marriage have surfaced on the Singapore Hardwarezone forum, including insinuations that Lau is being, or will be cuckolded.

The comments stemmed from Yap’s previous Instagram Stories, which showed her partying with her male friends.

In response to these comments, Yap has taken legal action due to the “false claims and defaming statements”, resulting in the removal of a number of forum threads.

This was revealed on Yap’s Instagram Stories on April 22, 2019:

Hardwarezone user apologises

On the same day Yap made these revelations on Instagram, a forum user known as Fat_Auntie posted an apology addressed to Yap.

Besides wishing Yap’s marriage well, the user also declared that the other users will stop posting on the forum.

Other users, however, felt that Fat_Auntie made the wrong move by putting out an apology, as it is as good as admitting to making the defamatory remarks.

They probably wouldn’t mask the smell of a rude dude’s fart, but these instagrammable train carriages are definitely a breath of fresh air.

You probably know “Speak of Cao Cao, and Cao Cao arrives”. But did you know he sometimes arrives in a Gundam suit?
