POPULAR actress Yana Samsudin has confirmed that she would be tying the knot with actor Farid Kamil’s younger brother, Fadzil Zahari.
Kosmo! reported that the 30-year-old actress, whose real name is Norliana Samsudin, and 32-year-old Fadzil would be married in a simple ceremony on Feb 13 at her family home in Batu Pahat.
On the following day, the couple would hold a grand persandingan (reception) at Dataran Gemilang in Yong Peng for guests and the public.
Although coinciding with Valentine’s Day, Yana said they chose the dates that were “most convenient” for both families.
“It has nothing to do with Valentine’s Day.
“In fact, the chosen dates are actually too soon and there is hardly enough time for us to make preparations,” she said.
On the wedding theme, she said her family would be doing something modern, yet classic, while for the reception, the theme was “fresh flowers”.
On Fadzil’s side, the reception would be on March 7 in Jitra, Kedah.
> In a bizzare incident, a middle-aged woman went knocking on the doors of a hotel at 3am, claiming she was looking for someone.
Harian Metro reported that the woman, in her 40s, was not a guest at the hotel.
She had driven to the hotel in a Proton Wira and proceeded to knock on every room door, before the hotel management was alerted by guests.
According to a witness, staff of the hotel in Miri had tried to stop the woman, but she ignored them and seemed to be talking to herself.
“The hotel staff had no choice but to call the police, who then took the woman away,” he said.
The woman was taken to the Miri police headquarters and later sent back to her family.
