Girls hid sex acts with smokescreen

In four years, he made more than a million dollars from his nine pubs in two Orchard Road buildings.
But about 40 per cent of that money was made illegally by providing sexual services in the pubs.
His customers had to buy a certain number of "ladies drinks" at inflated prices to qualify for such services as oral sex inside the joints.
They could also pay a "bar fine" of at least $200 to take a woman out for activities that usually included sexual intercourse.
To provide these sexual services, pub owner Ang Boon Seng and his 18 accomplices, including his wife, procured women from the Philippines.
Ang, 40, is awaiting sentencing for abetting with others to procure women for the purpose of prostitution, abetting with others to harbour the women, living off their immoral earnings and managing brothels.
He faced 232 charges in total, with 189 taken into consideration and six earlier discharged amounting to acquittal.
His wife, Ylarde Anne Asuncion, a 31-year-old Singapore permanent resident from the Philippines, is also awaiting sentencing for six charges of procuring women for the purpose of prostitution and one count of living off immoral earnings.
They pleaded guilty in August.
Court documents revealed that Ang opened his first pub, Tokyo Drift, in Orchard Plaza in June 2009.
Based on his efforts and experience in the industry, the business prospered and by August 2013, he had opened another eight.
