INSTEAD of a fancy wedding dress or traditional attire, a couple in Kulim, Kedah, broke the norm and wore their school uniforms for their big day, Harian Metro reported.
High school sweethearts Siti Nor Zaimah Mat Daut and Muhammad Hasifi Azman, both 24, courted much attention at their kenduri. Siti Nor Zaimah said she had always wanted to get married in a school uniform to reminisce about her days at SM Sungai Karangan between 2006 and 2010.
“I told Muhammad Hasifi about it and he agreed to the idea,” she said.
“It was funny when my husband and I walked out to greet our guests at the kenduri hosted by my husband’s family in Taman Kenangan, Sungai Karangan, Kulim,” Siti Nor Zaimah said.
Their wedding photographs went viral on Facebook.
> It’s a sad tale of a bedridden woman who pleaded to be sent to an old folks’ home.
Habibah Othman, 60, lost her mobility about a year ago. Her daughter could not care for her as she herself was facing health issues, Sinar Harian reported.
On Saturday, volunteers from the Hulu Langat Welfare Department found Habibah in a weak condition at her home in Selangor. Her back was covered in sores and wounds.
“I want to stay in an old folks’ home because I am suffering here. I can’t depend on my daughter because she is also unwell,” said Habibah, who used to work as a supervisor at a hostel.
Her daughter Mas Anum Nazhir Ahmad, 33, said she suffered from bone and heart illness and could not take care of her mother. Habibah was sent to Kajang Hospital.
