HOST Awal Ashaari (pic) has become the subject of controversy after bleaching his hair, resulting in some groups saying they are uncomfortable with his image, reported Harian Metro.

Awal, who had just performed umrah, however, said he was not affected by such criticism, adding that he was very much into fashion and liked to “experiment”.

“It’s improbable for me to constantly wear the kopiah. My job is also related to the fashion industry.

“I can only do what makes me happy but at the same time, preserve my relationship with the Almighty,” he said.

The father of two said he also refrained from paying attention to the criticism, adding that he would only focus on doing good.

“I’m not bothered with the perception of others (of me), as I want to be closer to God and at peace,” he added.

> Having been cheated out of RM100,000 by his own friend, actor Adam Corrie has made it a point to be more cautious of who he chooses to do business with, Utusan Malaysia reported.

Adam, whose full name is Adam Corrie Lee Abdullah, said the experience taught him not to be too trusting of anyone.

“I received many offers to open business, but decided to reject them for various reasons,” he said.

He shared an incident where he was cheated of RM100,000 by a man who claimed to be a fashion designer.

“The man disappeared and the money has not been returned until today,” he added.

Adam, who has also been running a clothing business for almost 10 years, said managing his own business has its own set of challenges.

“I struggled through everything but thankfully the business pulled through.

“I voiced all my worries and problems to the Almighty. That is what gives me strength.

“My wife’s support also ensured my business can be sustained until today,” he said.

> Unlike previous years during Ramadan, Rahmah Jaafar can’t fast this time round, Kosmo! reported.

Having been diagnosed with stage four breast cancer last year, the 74-year-old from Kedah is unable to fast as she tends to get seizures.

Her son Zulkhibri Ayub, 35, said there were no recommended treatments for his mother due to old age.

“My mother can only fight the pain and take painkillers if the situation becomes unbearable,” he said, adding that the cancer was detected during the Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebrations last year.
