A netizen, Vestene Wong, shared on Facebook how she was assaulted and slapped in the face by her housemate who lived in the same rental house as her.
She was allegedly slapped for using the kitchen at about 5am and waking her up.
Here is what she said
Hi everyone, today I’m using the social media platform to raise my voice what has happened to me on Sunday morning.
To start with, I am currently living in a rental room with three housemates (a female housemate on the ground floor outside the kitchen and two male housemates on the upper floor).
On 5/3/2022 Sunday, I had planned on going hiking with friends and I went to the kitchen to prepare food at 5am.
However, in less than 10 minutes of being in the kitchen.. my housemate who’s living on the ground floor had walked out of the room and slapped me in the face.
The reason was that I woke her up.
She also shouted at me with foul language and questioned me why did I not carry my stove to the living room to cook. At that moment, I was shocked because I thought that was a common area, anyone could use it anytime and it was my first time using the kitchen this early.
In fact, I double confirmed with my landlord that there’s no curfew on using the common area. I told her I will be filing a report to the police and she told me she could get away with it by engaging a lawyer and suing me because she got anxiety.
So if one of the tenants is hungry in the middle of the night and decided to make supper, does he/she has to get slapped in the face by tenants living on the ground floor?
Hence, I’ve decided to file a report to the police station and she did come to the police station bringing an unlabelled pill stating it’s her anxiety pill. When the sergeant asked if she has a card to validate her mental illness, she told us it was mild anxiety and there’s no card to verify her mental illness.
Regardless of anything at all, one can’t just simply slap someone else and cover it up with “mild anxiety”
Of course, the police demanded her to apologize and so she did…by saying “I am willing to apologize but for you to acknowledge my apologies is another story..
Yes I’m wrong but she’s also not considerate at all” Tbh, I don’t acknowledge it at all and it was still one of the most insincere apologies I’ve encountered. In the end, I’ve decided to walk away from that so called “mediation” because it wasting time talking to uncivilized people.
I can’t believe it’s 2022, and this kind of thing still happened. I understand that I may need to be considerate which was why I had informed her a night before that I’ll be using the kitchen and not to mention, it was my first time cooking at 5am and that she chooses to stay in the room front of the kitchen from the very beginning.
Currently I’m still living in the same house because this is the last month of our tenancy in this house. I’m still living in fear hoping that she won’t hurt me.
Ps: if there ever is a comeback story, I will not entertain no more

Really The most horrible day of my life
