Other News & Views by WONG PEK MEI, NG SI HOOI AND A.RAMAN
MANY women are willing to seek new partners to fulfil their sexual desires despite having good looks and a rich husband, Metro Ahad reported.
They look for single or even married men to fulfil their lust, but at home, they are still the housewives and the mothers to their children.
The daily's reporters, who went undercover, tracked a group of such women in their 30s, who lamented that felt lonely without their husbands, who are usually busy businessmen.
One of them, Linda, 31, said she has had relationships with five men during the past seven years.
However, she would not leave her husband and family, although she claimed that her husband was more committed to his work than to her.
“I realise that my behaviour is wrong. I know what I am doing and I'm now happy with the path that I chose,” she said.
Linda said her husband only looked for her when he wants sex.
“Even that comes once a month,” she added.
Shima, 34, said she has been having a difficult relationship with her husband's family even after eight years of marriage.
What was even worse was that her husband preferred to communicate with his own family than with her.
That was why she decided to find other partners.
“I was worried at first that my husband and family would find out. But now I know how to handle the situation,” she said.
Shima justified her act, claiming that she suspected that her husband was doing the same thing.
> The newspaper also published a report about a type of wood called teras gemungga which is becoming popular among local artistes and VIPs who buy them as amulets to protect themselves from being charmed.
The report claimed that actors, singers, television presenters and politicians are among those who buy the wood, which is said to have powers to ward off evil spirits.
A collector of such wood, Sayuti Harun, 72, said a few VIPs from inside and outside of Terengganu looked for him to acquire the wood.
He said he never intentionally wanted to sell the wood, but some of them were willing to pay up to RM2,000 to get their hands on a genuine teras gemungga.
“That is a lot of money for me, and I hope that the wood can help them,” he added.
Sayuti, also known as Pok De, said he uses the wood to cure snakebites or other poisonous bites.
