LOCAL celebrity Uqasha Senrose revealed that she suffered from two miscarriages last year, Utusan Malaysia reported.

Uqasha admitted that her first miscarriage happened while performing umrah in early 2022 and that her second occurred in November of the same year.

“While I was performing the umrah, I suddenly bled profusely, but I kept it quiet. I didn’t even go to a doctor for a check-up.

“In November, I suffered terrible back pain. I thought it was strange as I had never had painful periods, but I was two months pregnant (at the time).

“By the time I went to see the doctor, I was told my pregnancy had ended,” she said.

Uqasha’s husband, actor Kamal Adli, said the doctor told Uqasha to go in for a minor operation to remove a blood clot since it might affect her next pregnancy.

But due to her hectic work schedule, she has had to postpone her plans for motherhood until next August.

“Who doesn’t want to hear the patter of tiny feet? I had to postpone the plan because of my work demands. Kamal and I have decided to take it one day at a time,” she added.

> A last-minute schedule change on a return flight left more than 100 people stranded in Medina, Saudi Arabia, for three days – most of them were going home after performing umrah, reported Harian Metro.

Basri Baco, 36, and his wife got stranded for three days – two days in the Holy Land and one day in Jeddah – due to a delay in the return flight on March 5.

He said they were supposed to perform umrah on Feb 19, but a week before the date, the agency suddenly changed the date to Feb 22.

“Fortunately, we were prepared and travelled there. However, the return trip had yet to be arranged, and we were later told it was deferred to March 5.

“We were told that the return flight tickets were ready, but we had to transit in Jeddah,” he said.

“There were elderly people with crutches and those in wheelchairs who had difficulty checking in at the hotel, which is located on a hill.

“I even assisted carrying the suitcase of an elderly woman with crutches,” he added.

He said Malaysian embassy officials then met with the parties involved before transporting them to a hotel in Jeddah where they spent a night.

“Due to the flight delay, I also had to spend an extra RM2,400 to buy a new ticket to fly back to Tawau.

“I’m disappointed as the arrangements were not properly planned,” he lamented.

> Chung Chia Khang, 28, also known as Ah Kai, began gardening seven years ago on a piece of idle land in his backyard and has since grown to cultivate a 12ha vegetable plot in Tanah Tinggi Lojing, reported Kosmo!.

Ah Kai grows plants such as cabbage, corn, tomatoes, parsley, leeks, coriander, white radish, beans and honeydew, among others.He said at first he just worked on 1,000 polybags of pepper in his yard in Kampung Keroh, Kuala Krai.

“I started out small, and I was glad to get a RM10,000 Supplemental Economic Activity grant so I could grow my farm.

“It pays as I could earn up to RM400,000 per month because of my persistence and dedication,” he said.

Ah Kai said vegetables grown through fertigation have the potential to be marketed even for export and are profitable.

“The market price of vegetables this year is good, up more than 50% from one or two years ago,” he added.
