Japanese man ties the knot with a hologram

Published

It’s not really surprising that 35-year-old Akihiko Kondo’s mother refused to attend her son’s wedding. After all, he was getting hitched to a hologram.

In fact, most of Akihiko’s family boycotted his nuptials to Hatsune Miku – a young pop singer with large blue eyes and turquoise hair.

But the bride probably didn’t mind as she only exists in the virtual world.

“For mother, it wasn’t something to celebrate,” Akihiko told Japan Times.

The ceremony – which cost him $18 000 (about R260 000) – was, however, attended by 40 other (real-life) guests.

Woman blows up wedding dress during divorce party

A woman celebrated her new single life in explosive fashion – by blowing up her wedding dress at her divorce party.

His talking, moving hologram girlfriend, whom he’s been living with for eight months, is contained in a glass box, Reuters reports.

But on his big day Akihiko had a doll of her image made so he could exchange rings with his bride. The doll was dressed in a white wedding gown complete with veil, while the groom wore a white satin suit.

Hong kong train accident leaves eight injured.

Published

A rare train derailment disrupted services in Hong Kong on Tuesday, the rail operator said, threatening commuter chaos during rush hour.

The disruption to a usually seamless network used by nearly 6 million people every weekday happened after a train derailed while leaving a station in the Kowloon area, rail operator MTR Corp said.

The government’s information department said eight people were injured and five had been taken to hospital.

Rex Auyeung Pak-kuen, chairman of MTR Corp, told reporters that a derailment had not happened in many years and the cause was not immediately clear.

“We will work together with the government to find out the truth as soon as possible so as to continue to provide safe services,” he said. “We apologize that our passengers were injured in the accident.”

Hong Kong’s rail system has been a target of vandalism during recent pro-democracy protests, with activists angry that MTR has closed stations to stop protesters gathering.

Television footage showed hundreds of passengers trying to get off the derailed train. Public broadcaster RTHK said the train had suddenly swayed and a door had flown off before the train stopped.

Nearby stations were overcrowded, and intervals between trains were extended to 12 minutes from two.

MTR’s shares fell 1.1% in line with the broader Hang Seng Index, which was down 1%.

Brazil to host Nigeria and Senegal

Published

Brazil Football Confederation official Juninho Paulista have confirmed frendlies with Nigeria and Senegal.

It will be first ever meeting between Brazil and Senegal, who lost the Africa Cup of Nations final to Algeria and are the continent’s top-ranked African side.

Nigeria, who won Bronze in Egypt, will be meeting Brazil for the second time at senior level following a 3-0 defeat in a friendly in June 2003 in Abuja.

“We chose two of the best African teams because they are high level opponents,” Brazil Football Confederation official Juninho Paulista said on the website.

“It was a wish of the technical commission. So we went after these opponents.”

The friendlies are in line with Brazil’s wishes to play top 50 ranked teams whenever possible.

Brazil’s only other Africa opponent under coach Tite was a 1-0 win over Cameroon in November last year, in a match played in England.

It will be Brazil’s second game in Singapore following a Neymar-inspired victory over Japan in October 2014.
