The Sinking Ship in a Glass

Always one with a sense of humor, online retailer Firebox is selling a clever cocktail tumbler glass that features a sinking glass ship. 

The forlorn ship is submerged whenever liquid is poured into the glass. A particularly sloshy drink will make it look like a storm has been visited upon the poor sea vessel and a casual calming drink will provide smooth sailing. 

The Sinking Ship Glass is definitely the perfect vessel to add a little drama to your drinks. You could pop in a couple of large ice cubes bergs and get some blood in the water with a gruesome splash of grenadine. Better yet, you could mix in a dark coffee liqueur and pretend there’s been a terrible (but exceedingly tasty) oil disaster. 

All the glass requires is some creative mixology depending on the desired scenario.

Malaysia is seeing an exponential rise in brought-in-dead (BID) cases due to Covid-19 complications, particularly in the Greater KL Area. 

A National Crisis Preparedness and Response Centre analysis found that there has been a sevenfold increase in BID cases from April (35 cases) to June 2021 (246 cases). 

As at July 02, a total of 4,856 deaths were reported in 2021 todate – and of this number, 670 (13.8 percent) deaths were reported before arrival at the hospital. And most BID cases involved victims aged 50 to 70 years (76.7 percent) with at least one comorbidity (64.5 percent). 

This is very worrying!
