LOCAL songstress Jeryl Lee Pei Ling (pic) is making forays into the film industry and will appear in a movie titled Xing Fu Mi Ma (Password to Happiness), reported Sin Chew Daily.

Following that, the 19-year-old Penangite will be giving up her place in the Chinese talent competition The Coming One Season 3 due to scheduling conflicts.

“(The movie’s) filming schedule overlaps with filming for The Coming One.

“As such, I decided to give up the competition,” she said during the launch of her new single I Wanna Be Free in Kuala Lumpur recently.

Lee said she had successfully entered the top 100 in The Coming One, adding that it made her both “nervous and excited”.

Lee propelled to fame when she performed in Beijing’s famous Bird’s Nest Stadium in 2016, at the grand finals of the Sing! China competition.

She beat 14 other international singers and made it into the Top Six.

> The sight of a trailer transporting a fuselage of a Boeing 727-200 along the North-South Expressway on June 21 startled road users, reported China Press.

Photos of the fuselage bound for Johor Baru were shared online, leading many to speculate if it was the remains from the tragic MH370 flight.

It was later confirmed that Crescendo International College had bought the aircraft to train students to be flight attendants.

College CEO Fang Kiam Hui said the fuselage has yet to be assembled.

Other parts of the aircraft were transported using three trailers.
