Imadgination Lim Peng Heng molests one job applicant

That ought to be the hazard of applying for a job in a company called Imadgination.

I'm curious about the company & did a google for "Imadgination". Interestingly there were at least 3 companies with the same name which however are based abroad: www.imadgination.co.uk, www.imadgination.com.au, and imadgination.com (the last one based in the US).

Coincident? Perhaps. For sure, none of the company bothers to copyright the brand.

Anyway, I also happen to come across two job advertisements from a Singapore's Imadgination Pte Ltd which involve the abusive boss-to-be Lim Peng Heng. (Check out the email address of alvinlph@singnet.com.sg; that lph ought to refer to Lim Peng Heng, I guess.)

The question remains are there then any other victims who may just suffer in silence? Perhaps. Perhaps not. Till it's proven otherwise, this shameful case will only has 1 victim: a brave 25-year-old woman who has the courage to step forward to put an end to the misuse of authority by a boss.

From Straits Times (apology the URL is not available. Me absent-minded...):
She was being interviewed for the post of administration and marketing executive when her interviewer pulled her close and kissed her on the lips.

Lim Peng Heng, 36, who told her that he was the boss of the advertising company called Imadgination, also bragged about the size of his penis and his sexual experiences.

On Wednesday, the 36-year-old pleaded guilty in a district court to outraging the modesty of the 25-year-old woman.

His lawyer Edmond Pereira will present arguments on Friday and press for a light sentence.

Lim can be jailed for up to three years, fined and caned.




Update on 06/01/10: For outraging the modesty of the 25-year-old woman, Lim Peng Heng, 36, was jailed for two weeks by a district court on Jan 6. Quite a light punishment, I'd say. Pity. I'd have expected more victims would come forward. Then again, this Lim Peng Heng is no Tiger Woods.

She was being interviewed for the post of administrative clerk when her prospective boss pulled her close and kissed her on the lips supposedly for her birthday the next day.

or outraging the modesty of the 25-year-old woman, Lim Peng Heng, 36, was jailed for two weeks by a district court on Jan 6.

The 36-year-old boss of Imadgination, an advertising firm, had pleaded guilty last month.

He also admitted to insulting her modesty by bragging about his sexual prowess.

Lim's lawyer Edmond Pereira sought to convince the court to mete out a fine, saying his client had been overwhelmed by the victim's charm and friendliness when he gave her a 'birthday kiss'.

Lim has a previous conviction for molestation for which he was jailed for 2 1/2 months in 1995. Imadgination has since closed down.
