Shopping can be a stressful situation considering that you have to be in a crowded place and deal with a lot of bright lights and noise. However, the truth is that you might not be alone. We are used to cameras and expect there to be hidden ones in the store in open areas.
1. Stare Into The Mirror
As a child, Miss Angela Ouyang was told to look out for hidden cameras in changing rooms when she went shopping. Yesterday, former security guard Ali V. Mohamed, the founder of a voyeuristic video group, was found guilty of being in possession of obscene films for the purpose of distribution. Ali was part of an online group that distributed voyeuristic videos taken with hidden cameras and the prosecution described the case as the "worst of its kind". The case has shaken Miss Ouyang, and speaking to The New Paper yesterday, she said: "It never really occurred to me to check for cameras in changing rooms, so it is really disturbing to know that there are people who would go to such an extent to fulfil their sick pleasures. The case came to light after a police report was lodged in November about films of schoolgirls relieving themselves or trying on clothes in changing rooms - along with other obscene films - being circulated on an online site known as Sammyboy Forum, which is a predominantly sex-themed forum with hundreds of threads sharing obscene material. Though concerned, Miss Ouyang, 20, says the case will not stop her from going to stores and shopping at malls. Housewife Tan Siok Meng, 50, says she will just take more care when she is in changing rooms. She said: "I try to be a bit more conscious when I am trying on clothes because of these types of reports, but I have confidence in the shops that I go to, so I am not too worried about it.

For six charges of insulting a woman's modesty, with another six charges taken into consideration for sentencing, year-old Sholehudin Shariffuddin was jailed for 20 weeks on Monday Feb The court heard that Sholehudin placed a phone inside a cardboard box, propping it up with many rolls of receipt paper and aligning it with a hole in the box. He set up the box in late July to record videos of his colleagues changing, in particular targeting one cinema service crew member as he was attracted to her. He captured videos of this year-old woman changing on at least four occasions from late July , capturing her in her underwear in most of the clips. In December , a male employee went to the changing room to put on his uniform when he saw a cardboard box placed on the ground that was not usually there. He opened the box and found the phone in its set-up and informed a manager, who called the police. Sholehudin later admitted that the phone was his, and that he intended to film his colleagues and subordinates, especially the woman he was physically attracted to. He said he would go home to look through the videos and masturbate while watching them as "he had a strong sexual urge", said Deputy Public Prosecutor Gabriel Lim.
