NEWLYWED Elizabeth Tan and her husband may be living separately but the singer-actress says it does not change anything in their lives or relationship, reported BH Ahad.

“Although we are married, I am still me and nothing has changed.

“The decision to not stay under the same roof was mutual as we believe couples do not necessarily have to do everything together.

“At times we need our own privacy too,” said Tan.

The 28-year-old tied the knot with businessman Siew Jim, 30, on March 21.

Their wedding was only known publicly when videos and photos were posted that morning by a family member and a friend showing Tan getting married in a church. The posts went viral.



Tan, also known as Lizzy, admitted that among the reasons they decided on being a long-distance couple was they wanted to take care of their parents, considering both of them were the youngest child.

But Tan was quick to add she never neglected her duties as a wife and constantly kept in touch with her husband.

“We always do video calls and update videos of us together on social media,” she said.



> A man found an injured 200kg tapir at the side of a road in Dungun, Terengganu, which was believed to have been hit by a vehicle, reported Metro Ahad.

The animal was found near KM26, Jalan Dungun-Bukit Besi, near Kampung Pinang Mas.

“I stopped my vehicle when I saw the tapir struggling by the road.

“It couldn’t walk because both its hind legs seemed injured,” said lorry driver Zulkifli Idris, 47.

Zulkifli, who works with the Dungun Municipal Council, said he was on his way to Bandar Dungun to collect trash at Bukit Besi at about 8.45am on Saturday.

“I think the tapir just got hit, but I did not see a vehicle. It could have been badly damaged,” he added.

He then called the emergency line and the matter was referred to the Wildlife and National Parks Department (Perhilitan).

When contacted, state Perhilitan director Dr Abdul Malek Mohd Yusof said a team was dispatched to rescue the animal.
