SEASONED actor Wan Hanafi Su (pic) is giving free lessons to those who want to study acting, Harian Metro reported.
The 68-year-old said he did not wish to charge for his coaching because acting was not something that could be learnt in a short time.
“If a student insists on paying, the money will be used to buy food for my student and me.
“There is no need for me to charge an exorbitant fee because I can’t issue any certificate,” he said, adding that acting classes could cost up to RM450 a day.
Wan Hanafi added that the method of teaching would be like that of an informal religious school (sekolah pondok), where students would come to his home to learn.
> The daily also reported that a 20-year-old woman in Sandakan, Sabah, had named her son Abu Bakar (“burning ash” in Malay) after she gave birth to him a night after her village, Kampung Gas, was razed by a fire.
Roziana Lais said she was grateful that she and her family had escaped unscathed as well as for her safe delivery last week.
The new mother, who is now staying at a temporary shelter, said she hoped efforts to reconstruct the houses would be hastened.
“It’s hard to undergo my confinement period at the shelter. Moreover, this is my first child.
