I swear that the press is really full of shit.
I don’t know which part of this article makes sense.
UNDERGRADUATE David Hartanto Widjaja ‘married’ an 18-year-old girl in popular online video game Destiny Online last December, barely a month after getting to know her online.
Their online friends from the game, which involves killing monsters, attended the wedding ceremony and Miss Chua Jia Yu became his virtual wife.
The couple, though, never met in real life although they chatted frequently online and also had each other’s phone numbers.
When Mr Widjaja, 21, first proposed to her, she initially ignored him as she was still ‘married’ to another player.
But when that player stopped playing the game, she dumped him and took the Indonesian student as her ‘husband’ instead.
On Monday, Miss Chua took the witness stand in the coroner’s inquiry into Mr Widjaja’s death to shed some light on his state of mind in the days leading up to his death on March 2.
Miss Chua said she had communicated with him through the game, online messaging or through SMS messages on a daily basis. Their chats were usually about the game.
Miss Chua said Mr Widjaja would spend hours each day playing the game, sometimes staying up till 4am.
Mr Widjaja’s hostel mates and friends said he had become obsessed with computer games to the point that it affected his studies.
As the pair became closer, she gave him her game account password so that he could control both their accounts to accumulate points. This took place when she began schooling at Singapore Polytechnic in February.
I think they should just stop trying to create news, and publish some real news instead.
