1. Grocery shops, convenience stores and Chinese medicine halls in KL will only be allowed to sell liquor from 7am-9pm beginning today.

DBKL says outlets must provide a separate display space and sales area for alcoholic beverages, which must be closed after the permitted time.
2. For Chinese medicine halls, the sale of mixed or pure liquor for medicinal purposes must obtain the approvals from the Health Ministry.

DBKL says it has updated the existing guidelines on the sale of liquor after taking into consideration various stakeholders’ opinions.
3. Meanwhile, pubs, bars, lounges and restaurants that are licensed to sell alcohol, will be able to do so from 10am to midnight.

DBKL says business owners can apply for time extension, adding that the maximum time for liquor sales for these premises is until 2am only.
4. Business activities that must get the license to sell liquor include warehouses that store, sell and supply beer for events.

The license also applies to shophouses, hotels, shopping malls, supermarkets and hypermarkets.
5. DBKL says the license must be displayed at the entrance of the business premises at all times.

Business owners must also ensure their outlets do not face or be within 100m of police stations, houses of worship, schools, hospitals and residential houses.
6. DBKL adds that a QR code must also be displayed at the entrance of business premises selling liquor.

“Blue – can be served on business premises. Yellow – can be taken home only.”
7. Applicants and license holders are only allowed for non-Muslims.

“The owners of the business premises, sole proprietors or partnerships as well as the majority of the company board members must be non-Muslims,” DBKL says.

The Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry says the test kits will also be made available at more premises, including at certain supermarkets, convenience stores and petrol stations.

3. Correction:

Covid-19 self-test kits will now retail for as low as RM6.90 per unit.

Berita Harian reports, KPDNHEP says even though some premises are selling the test kits for RM6.60, this does not mean that the ceiling price, to be determined later, will be as low as that.

1. Restaurateur Ado Campeol, known as “the father of Tiramisu”, has died at the age of 93.

Campeol was the owner of the restaurant Le Beccherie, where the dessert was invented by his wife and a chef.

The dish was added to their menu in 1972, but they never patented the recipe.
2. According to the BBC, Campeol’s wife Alba and chef Roberto Linguanotto came up with the idea for the tiramisu after Linguanotto accidentally dropped mascarpone in a bowl of eggs and sugar while making vanilla ice cream.
3. Alba and Linguanotto then added coffee-soaked ladyfingers and sprinkled the dessert with cocoa, calling it “Tiramisù”, which translates as “pick me up”.

The recipe was eventually certified by the Italian Academy of Cuisine in 2010.

1. Hong Kong’s consumer watchdog has detected cancer-causing substances in all 60 samples of pre-packaged biscuits and crackers.

The products, including Hup Seng Special Cream Crackers and Oreo Mini, were found to contain carcinogens called glycidol or acrylamide, or both.
2. Muji Shiruko Sandwich Cracker had 620 g/kg of acrylamide, which is almost double the safe limit.

The Hong Kong Consumer Council says glycidol and acrylamide are produced in high-temperature processing of biscuits.

Animal testing indicates the carcinogens may induce cancer.
3. “We believe these kinds of contaminants are possible to avoid because according to our findings, some of the ingredients in these biscuits are palm oil,” the council says.

Palm oil refined at high temperatures carries potential carcinogenic risks, according to EFSA.

1. Lunar rocks from China's space mission last year show that the Moon may be more recently volcanically active than previously thought.

The rocks are the first lunar samples to be brought back to Earth for the first time in about 40 years.
2. The samples, which included basalt, a form of cooled lava, were found to be from 2.03 billion years ago.

This means the last known date of volcanic activity on the Moon is about 900 million years later than previously thought.
3. The Chinese Academy of Sciences also say the Moon's interior was still evolving at around 2 billion years ago.

Moon rocks brought back by previous US and Soviet missions showed evidence of lunar activity up to 2.8 billion years ago.
