ALOR STAR: Malaysia's award-winning actress Lee Sin Jie was conferred the Ahli Mahkota Kedah (AMK) by Sultan Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah in conjunction with his 76th birthday. 

The 27-year-old actress said it was an honour to be given the award. 

“I want to share this honour with my family,” said Lee, who is the eldest among four siblings. 

She thanked Sultan Abdul Halim for conferring her the award and Kedah Gerakan chairman Datuk Fong Chok Gin for recommending her. 

She said the Sultan, who chatted with her after the investiture ceremony at Istana Anak Bukit, asked her about her career and life in Hong Kong. 

“The Sultan is very nice,” said Lee, who grew up in Langgar, 10km from here, before her family moved to Alor Star when she was 14.

Her performance in the horror flick entitled The Eye won her both the awards. 

Another Kedah actress who also received the AMK yesterday was Kartina Aziz, who has starred in various local movies and dramas.
