THE Ramadan month has brought blessings for songstress Datuk Seri Siti Nurhaliza Tarudin (pic) as she got to fulfil her wish to perform the umrah, reported Berita Harian.
Siti left for Mecca with her husband Datuk Seri Khalid Mohamad Jiwa and daughter Siti Aafiyah Khalid on May 23.
Although this was not her first umrah, she said it was very meaningful this time as her baby daughter would be with her, and was grateful for the chance to do so.
“The desire to bring Aafiyah became more apparent after I saw actress Yatt Hamzah doing the same thing with her baby.
“If she could manage it, then surely I can too. I hope all will be well,” she said.
She said she was aware that the situation could get rather busy in Mecca and Medina, so bringing a toddler along was risky.
However, Siti said she had done all the necessary preparations, including getting vaccinations for Aafiyah.
> A woman, who had enough of her husband’s frequent visits to the massage parlours, decided to tell the police.
The 36-year-old wife also complained to Harian Metro, saying that she was fed up with her husband’s philandering ways.
She said she lodged complaints to the authorities to take action against the premises near their home in Cheras, Kuala Lumpur.
“I have complained to local councils, police and even the Immigration Department, but there has been no action till now,” she said.
Kuala Lumpur Immigration Department director Hamidi Adam said they had received about 100 complaints on such matters every month last year.
