Miss Fazura.-- RAYMOND OOI/ The Star

POPULAR actress Fazura (pic) will not be tying the knot and “changing diapers” anytime soon, reported Berita Harian Ahad.

The report stated that the star was aiming to give Broadway a shot someday.

“I keep in touch with Broadway actors on social media and when they found out that I’m an actress, they offered me to be part of the musical world,” said the 34-year-old.

(Broadway refers to the thea­trical performances presented in the 41 professional theatres with 500 or more seats located in the Theater District and Lincoln Centre along Broadway, in Midtown Manhattan, New York City).

Fazura, whose full name is Nur Fazura Sharifuddin, said making it to Broadway was her biggest dream.

“Perhaps when it has come true, I will start thinking about marriage and changing diapers,” she said.

The diva, who made her name in the Philippines with her reality show Facing Up To Fazura, revealed that she recently recorded a duet album with Pinoy singer Jason Dy.

“It’s called Nothing Like Pag Ibiq and the music video is already done, we’re just waiting for the right time to release it,” she said.

The Sayangi Dirimu singer is also slated to star in a Filipino film soon.

> A teenager and her friend had a tough time when they tried to pray at a surau in a popular supermarket, reported Kosmo!

The girl, only known as Arabella, tweeted her encounter with a woman who harassed her and her friend while they were trying to pray. The location of the surau was undisclosed.

“I walked into the surau with a teenager who had dyed blonde hair and was wearing a short dress.

“When we entered, several wo­­men in the surau stared at us as they probably thought the blonde wasn’t a Muslim,” she wrote on her Twitter.

The woman then pulled their prayer garments off and refused to let them pray.

“I spoke nicely and asked if both of us could pray but she refused (to let us),” said Arabella.

She shrugged it off and tried to pray again, but the woman pulled her hair, causing Arabella to fall.

Someone then stepped in to calm things down, the daily reported.

> The prices of seafood, chicken and vegetables continue to increase after the Chinese New Year holidays, reported Sinar Harian.

Shah Alam market trader Mohd Yunus Abdul Syukor, 36, said a kilogram of prawns was now priced at RM27, sardines at RM9, and barramundi and large mackerel at RM15.

He said consumers opted for chicken but this was also expensive.

Chicken trader Hafiz Mat Lazim, 52, said he sold poultry at RM7.50 per kilo although the official ceiling price was set at RM6.70.

“We’re forced to do it because wholesalers set the price at RM6.80 per kilo. We can’t keep with the price set by the Government as suppliers also have to take transportation costs into account,” he said.

Housewife Husnaliza Abu Hassan, 42, said although items were ex­­pen­sive, she had no choice but to buy.
