ACTOR Ebby Saiful still gets invitations to perform even though the singer and composer has crossed over into acting, Utusan Malaysia reported.

Ebby said his passion for music has not faded and he has hundreds of compositions in his personal collection.

He hopes these songs will one day be sung by renowned singers in the industry.

“I’m still looking for the right person to carry these tunes.

“I’m not a choosy person but as a composer, we do have a say as to who we feel would be best suited to the song. It’s not for just any singer, it has to be someone with the right passion and the right personality,” he said.

He expressed his admiration for Liza Hanim, Hazama and Dayang Nurfaizah, saying that if given a chance, he hopes that they would be keen on singing his compositions.

> A goat named Jebat is treated as part of the family in Kuantan, Pahang, thanks to his lovable ways, reported Sinar Harian.

Rosnida Ramli said it’s normal for Jebat to be indoors or in her 83-year-old mother’s room.

Rosnida, 47, said Jebat receives a lot of hugs from her seven children and his antics have gotten the attention of the community at Taman Pe­rumahan Kampung Bukit Rangin.

“Jebat has always been affectionate and he loves being petted. When he was a kid, we would bring him into our home and hand-feed him.

“Over time, Jebat became very tame and he would come into the house to play with my children.

“I won’t ever sell Jebat. My family and I love him,” she said.
