EMMA Maembong (pic) has defended herself after being slammed for appearing too “sexy and daring” on social media, reported Mingguan Malaysia.

The actress, whose real name is Fatimah Rohani Ismail, said she has never changed her appearance since her youth and does not think it necessary to do so even after getting married.

“Let me be myself. I am the only one who will appreciate myself. I am trying my best to stay positive,” she said.

The 30-year-old caught the attention of social media users when she shared a six-second video of herself in a white singlet and red pants.

Users were quick to hurl brickbats at her and offer religious advice in the comment section.

Emma urged them not to criticise or link the issue to any of her family members.

“Please do not link it to my son. I am a mother and a wife. I know my limits. It’s just that I appreciate myself so I wear what is comfortable to me,” said the star who is married to pilot Muhammad Shazli Azhar, 32.

Asked if she would don the headscarf in future, she said she would one day.

“God willing, I will change. Please pray for me,” she added.

> A centre in Subang Jaya, Selangor, which offered various illegal cosmetic procedures including premium whitening drips and dental veneers to customers was busted in a joint operation, reported Metro Ahad.

Performed by a group of Indonesian women, its other services included dimpleplasty, lip augmentation and eyebrow embroidery that cost between RM100 and RM3,000.

The place was recently raided by a joint team from the Health Ministry and Immigration Department following the ministry’s intelligence gathering in the last few months.

The report quoted sources as saying that the illegal aesthetic treatments were mainly advertised on social media, including TikTok, and received an overwhelming response from mostly young women, career women and even VIPs.

Based on initial investigations, all the female staff who were from Indonesia were not professionally qualified to perform the procedures.

“Most of them had entered the country using a social visit pass before being hired to work there.They claimed to have been given training by the business owner who is also not a qualified doctor,” said the sources.

Authorities also found various syringes, chemical liquid and other equipment used by the staff as well as illegal teeth whitening substances and dental veneers.

“All of the equipment was not registered and has been seized as evidence,” said the sources.
