A WOMAN in Kota Tinggi, Johor, has continued to visit her daughter’s grave every day since she passed away from a Covid-19 infection 10 months ago, reported Harian Metro.
Khairani Baser, who lost her eldest child, Marsya Adrina Mohd Riad, said she had been visiting the grave as a way of comforting herself.
Marsya died at the Sultan Ismail Hospital in September last year, a fortnight after contracting the virus and a week before her 27th birthday.
“I used to come to the grave twice a day – once in the morning and again in the evening. Currently, I only come in the evenings. It has become part of my daily routine after her passing,” she said.
Khairani said she felt as if her daughter would be waiting for her if she did not visit her grave, prompting her to make time daily despite her hectic schedule.
She said while there were those who forwarded their prayers for her daughter to her after her social media post went viral, there were also others who criticised her.
“I only wanted to share my memory of her,” she said.
> Kosmo! reported that actress and entrepreneur Fazura got to fulfill her wish of selling products at the iconic Pasar Siti Khadijah in Kota Baru, Kelantan.
Fazura, whose full name is Nur Fazura Sharifuddin, recently shared her experience of selling vegetables at the marketplace via a video on YouTube.
“It has always been my dream to operate a business here since I was a young girl.
“When I was younger, I also wanted to be a stewardess but the experience of being a businesswoman was always on my mind,” said the Gol & Gincu actress.
The 39-year-old said she wanted to feel how it was like to sell goods beside other women at the marketplace.
It is understood that Fazura was in Kelantan to visit her personal make-up artist Rozlan Nassir as well as to celebrate Hari Raya Aidiladha.
