The producer asked the actor to work up to 24 hours based on the same excuse, ” she posted on her Instagram story, adding that the producer’s refusal stemmed from saving production cost.

> The Melaka state government has given a stern warning to artefact hunters to stay away from an excavation site following the discovery of pieces of wood believed to be from a merchant or a war vessel from the Melaka Sultanate era, reported Harian Metro.

State tourism, heritage and culture committee chairman Datuk Muhammad Jailani Khamis said the reclamation area near Kota Syahbandar, Pulau Pulau Melaka gained attention among artefact hunters recently following the discovery of several historical artefacts.

The pieces of wood from the vessel, he said, are believed to be more than 500 years old.

Aside from the pieces of wood, authorities also found old coins, porcelain shards and old iron tools at the site.

He said the state government had allocated a total of RM100,000 as an emergency fund to conduct the excavation work.
