Maya Karin aims to protect Malayan tigers

ACTRESS Maya Karin (pic), who previously helped raised awareness on river cleanliness, has taken up a campaign to save the Malayan tiger.

The 41-year-old German-Malay celebrity is determined to continue with her efforts to save the environment, Sinar Harian reported.

Maya, whose full name is Maya Karin Roelcke, said the “Save Our Malayan Tigers” campaign started in March last year under the patronage of Tun Dr Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali.

“I was surprised when my efforts to save the river and raise awareness managed to get a lot of attention from people.

“The Maya Karin Challenge that I started in September 2018 is still getting people’s response until now.

“I don’t want to stick to just one campaign and now I’ve taken on another campaign to save the tigers,” said the Munafik 2 actress.

Maya noted that there were only about 200 Malayan tigers left in Malaysia and people need to take stock of the declining number.

“The process to breed them is far from easy,” said Maya.

> The daily also reported that more than 60% of the 50,000 members on a Malaysian Muslim matchmaking site are women.

“The women registered on are usually aged between 18 and 35,” said site operator Mohamad Hasrul Hamimie Abd Hadi, 32.

“These women may not like to socialise. Therefore, they choose to socialise on social media as they feel more comfortable.”

The Islamic-based platform to find a spouse has been up since 2006. On average, it pairs five couples in a month.

> A mother whose third child was born on Feb 29, 2016 explained that she had not “arranged” for the birth on a leap year.

Harian Metro reported that Che Syamsiah Md Darus, 38, was advised by doctors instead to do so as she faced risks due to diabetes.

“I was wheeled into the labour room at 6pm on Feb 29, 2016 and I had a caesarean delivery.

“I gave birth to my third child Che Farhah Syazia Faizul Hisyam at 7.40pm.

“She can only celebrate her birthday once every four years,” said Che Syamsiah.

Last Saturday, which was Feb 29, Che Syamsiah, a private sector employee, and her husband Faizul Hisyam Abdul Rahim, 38, who works at a Proton factory in Perak, celebrated Che Farhah’s birthday for the first time in Alor Gajah, Melaka.
