A 26-YEAR-OLD doctor received over 200 marriage “applications” in response to his creative resume posted on Twitter on Sept 6, reported Metro Ahad.
Muhammad Naquib Hasief Baharin, who is doing housemanship at Hospital Aminah Sultanah in Johor, said he created the resume after downloading an application on his handphone while attending a medical course in Kuala Lumpur.
“I never imagined doing this as it was done spontaneously. I did not think it was wrong to try because I am still single, ” he said.
He said his intention was not meant to belittle women as he was serious about settling down.
“Looks are not the main criterion for me. What is important is that the woman is educated, courteous, carries herself well and gets on well with my family, ” he said.
Muhammad Naquib, who lives in Skudai, said he was surprised when he received over 200 responses via Instagram, to an extent that it had caused his phone to experience problems.
He said he needed time to respond to all the messages and apologised to those whom he had overlooked.
In a screenshot of his resume, Muhammad Naquib listed his requirements for a “perfect wife”.
Among them were that the woman must be Johor-based, receives a monthly salary based on performance, be well-educated, mature and have good table manners.
He also said that the winning candidate must laugh at his jokes and agree to come along to family events.
