THE Terengganu government is considering separating male and female visitors at the La Hot Spring in Hulu Besut, Terengganu, Kosmo! reported.

State exco for tourism, culture, environment and climate change Datuk Razali Idris said a proper mechanism for segregation was being considered.

He added that he had received suggestions on the matter from netizens over the past several days on social media.

According to Razali, the hot spring, which has one hot bath area, was popular among visitors seeking bath therapy in the natural pool.

“As such, there is a mingling of the sexes. I think it is better if there is segregation for the comfort of visitors,” he said.

The hot spring is located about 125km from Kuala Terengganu.

It has been in operation since 1992 under the management of the Besut district council.

> Actress and former beauty queen Amy Nur Tinie Abdul Aziz has voiced her anger at another celebrity for claiming that her acting was “wooden”, Harian Metro reported.

“She told a producer not to cast me because my acting was kayu (stiff),” she said.

“Film directors would know whether I can act or not,” she said, adding that she wanted to compete in a healthy environment.

Amy, who was Miss Eco International in 2019, claimed that the other actress, whom she did not name, had met with the producer and told him that she was a terrible actress.

“I dislike controversy or ranting on social media, but she seemed to have gone overboard,” said Amy, 28.
