PETALING JAYA: The daughter of MH370 chief steward Andrew Nari shares her heartfelt messages to her missing father on Twitter.
Maira Elizabeth Nari used her twitter handle @Gorgxous_ to express her grief and concern over her missing father.
"God.... The only thing I want is my father..... Nothing, but my father. I want my father back," she tweeted on Saturday.
Maira on Sunday tweeted: "Daddy. You're all over the news and papers. Come home fast, so you could read them! Don't you feel excited?"
"Daddy. It's almost 48 hours. Don't forget to eat your dinner. You must be starving," Maira tweeted.
"Come home fast, dad.. It's the only thing I want," she tweeted.
"Normally at this hour, before my dad goes to bed, he would tell me this, " Don't sleep so late okay " Goodnight, daddy," Maira tweeted at around 2am on Monday.
Maira's heartbreaking tweets caused a huge outpour of support and encouragement, with friends and strangers assuring her to stay strong.
@MeMonstaaa tweeted: "@Gorgxous_ feel sorry for you. God bless you and your dad. Keep praying and keep thinking positive. Stay strong girl."
Another Twitter user @Anis_Faizal tweeted: "Stay strong @Gorgxous_ ! I'm sending prayers and virtual hug for you."
Maira thanked everybody for their support by tweeting: "I'd like to thank everyone for their concern towards my dad and the whole passengers of flight #MH370. Only God can repay your kindness."
She also thanked Tun Dr Mahathir and his wife Tun Dr Siti Hasmah for their support.
"It's very nice, kind and thoughtful of Tun Dr. Mahathir and his loving wife to give us the support we need. God bless them," said Maira in her tweet on Monday morning.
"When Tun Dr. Siti Hasmah hugged me, she said, " Stay strong, keep on praying. Remember the happy moments in life ". She's beautiful," she said.
"You know what makes me keep on going? Supportive family members, friends & all of you who never stop giving positive support and prayers," Maira tweeted.
"My dad and all the other crews, together with the passengers of MH370 must be so happy that the whole world is praying for them," she said.
Maira also hoped that people would stop spreading rumours about the Malaysia Airlines MH370 flight.
“I really do hope that people will stop spreading rumours and all those edit photos or anything as it effects my feelings,” she said.
Maira also urged the public to not blame the pilot of flight MH370, Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah, for the missing plane.
"Don't you blame the pilot. It is truly a big responsibility for them as they are bringing hundreds of life behind their back," she said.
Maira is clearly close to her father as she recently posted a picture of herself with her father on February 24 with the caption: "He's my true happiness. I love you through thick and thin, forever daddy."
She posted another photo in July 29 last year with the caption: "This is my father and I & forever will be daddy's little girl."
