No honeymoon, no problem

Lovebirds: Syatilla and Sam have deferred their honeymoon due to the pandemic.

ON-screen partners and real-life lovebirds Shaheizy Sam and Syatilla Melvin have never gone on a honeymoon despite having been married for five years now, Kosmo! reported.

“We planned to go on our honeymoon on our anniversary on Feb 8 but we had to cancel it because of the movement control order, ” Syatilla told the Malay daily.

Syatilla, 30, said she and Sam enjoy having their own intimate moments to keep their love alive.

“Never a day goes by without me telling Sam ‘I love you’, ” said the actress whose full name is Siti Syatilla Amirol Melvin.

Sam and Syatilla tied the knot in 2016 and have two children, Syeriv Samheizy, four, and Sarima Samheizy, two.

This year, the couple celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary virtually with fans via the YouTube site SamTillaTV.

> The MCO hasn’t stopped professional entertainer Mohd Fahmi Mohamad Nadzri, 29, from “clowning” around, for a serious reason.

These days, the Melaka resident does not get to deliver laughter, but delivers food in his full clown costume around Jasin to support his family, Harian Metro reported.

Fahmi, who has been in the clown business for the past 10 years, said he didn’t mind putting on the costume and make-up as long as he could put food on the table and pay his rent.

“Nowadays, I have to spend more time on the road. It’s a far cry from performing in air-conditioned venues, ” he said.

His unique approach has paid off, as he said some people have even shown an interest in hiring him to perform at their events when the MCO is lifted.

> Starting with only seven strawberry plants, a digital marketing entrepreneur now supplies the fruit and its saplings to bakeries around Seremban, Utusan Malaysia reported.

Shahrina Md Shah, 47, said she started planting strawberries during the first MCO last year when it became difficult to get the fruit, which is also used as an ingredient or topping for cakes.

“This prompted me to plant the Japanese and Korean sweet varieties which can withstand high temperatures and sunny weather in lowlands, ” she said, adding that she could harvest between 50 and 100 strawberries a week.

Shahrina plants the fruit at her home in Taman Pinggiran Golf and gets about 60% of her orders from bakers in Seremban.

She said the side business could earn her between RM3,000 and RM5,000 a month.

Her saplings are sold from as low as RM15 each while fruit prices start at RM20 per 300g.

This is a sweet deal for local bakers who have to pay between RM25 and RM29 for the same amount sourced from Cameron Highlands.
