“Alhamdulillah, the ceremony went smoothly after it had been postponed previously due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
“I am grateful that our dreams of having family members from both sides witnessing our marriage (came true),” she said, while apologising for not inviting other celebrities due to restrictions imposed by the pandemic.
Speaking about Firdaus, she said, “I got to know him for two years and I like his character. He is a good man who prioritises his family.

> A man in Kuala Terengganu had to endure seeing his younger brother die in a burning vehicle, then bear witness to the death of their father just 10 hours later, Kosmo! reported.
Mohd Jasmani Jaafar, 50, was in an ambulance transporting his father Jaafar Abdullah, 76, home.
His father had been suffering from chronic asthma and high blood pressure and had asked to return home as there was nothing more doctors could do for him at the hospital, and he wanted to die at home.
On the way home, the vehicle that his brother Mohd Azizi, 37, was in, which was trailing the ambulance, caught fire in Jalan Kuala Terengganu-Kuala Berang at 7.05pm last Friday.
“I saw my brother’s vehicle ablaze while I was in the ambulance.
“I tried to help him, but was prevented from doing so by others as the fire was too fierce. I had to watch as my brother perished in the fire,” Mohd Jasmani said.
His misery did not end there as his father passed away some 10 hours later.
