AFTER over five months in a coma, a tahfiz student who was involved in a horrific van accident in Kuala Krai, Kelantan, suddenly woke up.

Kosmo Ahad! frontpaged a report about Mohd Faiz Hafizzuddin Mohd Izahir, 17, whose recovery after being comatose for 168 days caught his family by surprise.

The student of Maahad Tahfiz Hashimi, Kuala Krai, fell into a coma after the van he was in crashed into a house at Kampung Telekong along the Kuala Kerai–Kota Baru road on June 2.

He was among seven who survived, while seven others died.

Hafizzuddin’s father Mohd Izahir Kassim, 49, said he was thankful that his son had regained consciousness after such a long sleep.

He said from the moment he opened his eyes, his son recognised him and his wife.

He was also able to move his arms and legs, although doctors said he needed help to speak again after being unconscious for so long.

> Two people who aspired to have the perfect chin ended up having to pay a fortune to remove the injected collagen.

Metro Ahad reported that Sharina Shafie, 38, and Baharun Baharudin, 37, had injected their chin with the substance but ended up becoming a laughingstock among their peers after it went awry.

Their chins ended up looking droopy and unnatural, and both had to endure painful operations to have the substance removed.

Sharina said she had the collagen injected into her chin when she was 25 and it started sagging 10 years later.

To correct her misshapen chin, she underwent an operation that cost her RM12,000 to get rid of the collagen.

Baharun had to undergo three operations, two in Thailand, to get rid of the collagen which had made his chin look abnormal.

> The tabloid also reported that actress and singer Keena Mentor (pic), 30, dismissed rumours that she had undergone plastic surgery to improve her looks.

Keena, whose real name is Suriana Abdul Wahab, said she only had laser treatment for her face and body at a skin clinic recently.

Keena, who acted in the television drama Aku Bukan Isteri Sempurna, said she was unperturbed by the allegations, as it was part and parcel of becoming a celebrity.
