DIRECTOR Datuk Yusof Haslam has advised singer Ziana Zain and her husband to amicably discuss the best solution to their issues, reported Sinar Harian.

“In any marriage, there would be hardships and struggles. My advice – discuss and find the best solution,” he said when asked to comment on the issue of Ziana’s husband, who was charged with assaulting their 10-year-old son.

Armin Zaharin Ahmad Zambri, 53, had allegedly assaulted their son at their house in Denai Alam at around 4am on Feb 25.

Yusof said while he did not want to meddle in other people’s marriage, he viewed his advice to Ziana as one from an older brother to a younger sister as he had known her even before her marriage.

“If my child is facing marriage problems, this is the same advice I would give. When people get married, they want it to last. But I believe Ziana knows better what she is going through.

“I pray for her to be strong while facing this test. I also hope my statement does not hurt anyone,” he said.

> Enraged that her husband refused to buy her a new car, a woman in Bukit Sentosa set their old Perodua Kancil on fire, reported Kosmo!

The woman was believed to have been unhappy with the car which often broke down.

During the 11.30am incident on Saturday, the woman had torched the car parked at their housing area in Hulu Selangor.

Alarmed neighbours contacted the Fire and Rescue Department to stop the flames from spreading.

The couple, who are in their 30s, started fighting about the matter three days ago.

What made the woman angrier was the fact that the air-conditioner in the car did not work and she had to drive in the hot weather.
