CELEBRITY Noor Neelofa Mohd Noor has good-naturedly praised a trader of Sarawak kek lapis (layer cake) who had named a product after her, Utusan Malaysia reported.
It all came about when the kuih trader promoted her cakes, some of which were named after Malaysian personalities, on Twitter.
Besides Neelofa, there were cakes named after celebrities such as Datuk Aaron Aziz and Erra Fazira, athlete Pandalela Rinong and second prime minister Tun Abdul Razak.
Neelofa, an actress and fashion brand owner of Naelofar Hijab, had not known about the layer cake until she found out about it on Twitter.
She then tweeted her gratitude to the trader.
“Hope you will have rezeki (generous fortune) this Ramadan,” she said.

The collection, produced in collaboration with fashion designer Razman Razmi, was criticised by some for not showing off the wearer’s masculine side.
Aznil explained that the style was inspired by the late singer Datuk Sudirman Arshad.
“I have a dream to continue his legacy which is why the samping (short sarong) is the same colour as the baju Melayu,” he said.The above articles are compiled from the vernacular newspapers (Bahasa Malaysia, Chinese and Tamil dailies).
