Utusan says no to AirAsia ads

Mingguan Malaysia columnist Awang Selamat says Utusan Malay-sia should not accept new advertisements from AirAsia unless AirAsia X CEO Azran Osman-Rani apologises to the daily.

Awang Selamat is a pseudonym used by the newspaper’s edi- tors.

Awang said Utusan would not face any problems without advertisements by AirAsia.

It was reported that Azran had openly lambasted Utusan Malaysia as racist for publishing a controversial front-page story headlined “Apa lagi Cina Mahu?” on May 7.

> Local singer Farawahida Razali (pic) is hoping to get hitched this year although no date has been fixed yet, re­por­ted Berita Harian’s entertainment pullout, B Pop.

The 28-year-old singer said she could not confirm her wedding date as her family was still checking on the availability of a hall to host the kenduri kahwin in her hometown in Tai­ping.

“I also need to ensure that the wedding takes place when my sister returns home for a visit,” Fara-wahida said.

The singer, who is known for the song Tanpa-mu, is set to marry her 29-year-old beau, who works at a health centre in Kuala Lumpur.
