Mell Sakura Wan 6ixth Sense nikah Jumaat ini



VOKALIS kumpulan Sakura, Melly Matius bakal mendirikan rumah tangga dengan gitaris kumpulan 6ixth Sense, Mohammad Safwan Hasnan pada 24 November ini.

Majlis pernikahan pasangan itu bakal berlangsung di kampung kelahiran Mell di Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.

“Saya dan Wan bakal berkahwin pada hari Jumaat ini (24 November) dan majlis akad nikah akan dijalankan di Masjid Bandaraya Kota Kinabalu pada pukul 9 pagi.

“Manakala, majlis bertandang akan berlangsung pada 26 November (Ahad) di Dewan Wisma Wanita, Kota Kinabalu Sabah pada pukul 6 petang,” katanya eksklusif kepada Astro Gempak.
 

Pasangan yang sedang sibuk membuat persiapan akhir itu mengakui sudah berkenalan sejak tujuh tahun lalu. “Kami merancang untuk berkahwin pada pertengahan tahun ini selepas tujuh tahun berkenalan.

“Setakat ini persiapan majlis perkahwinan kami sudah 90 peratus dan Alhamdulillah semuanya berjalan lancar. 

“Perasaan gemuruh memang ada tetapi saya banyak dibantu dan dibimbing oleh ibu saya,” ujar Mell.
 

Mell dan Wan masing-masing mendedahkan hubungan mereka menerusi akaun Instagram siang tadi dengan memuat naik gambar pra-perkahwinan.

Gambar-gambar yang mendapat reaksi positif dan ucapan tahniah daripada peminat itu sedikit sebanyak mengejutkan orang ramai yang sama sekali tidak menyangka atau dapat menghidu hubungan mereka.

“Bukan soal sorok majlis daripada peminat atau media tetapi saya tidak suka kecoh-kecoh tentang kisah peribadi, biarlah orang fokus pada kerjaya saya sebagai penyanyi.

“Takut juga nanti terlalu kecoh nanti benda tak jadi,” katanya.

Mell dan Wan tidak melangsungkan majlis pertunangan sebaliknya memilih untuk terus bernikah.

Majlis resepsi sebelah lelaki akan berlangsung pada 24 Disember 2017.

It makes no sense to ban the headscarf – CENBET



KUALA LUMPUR: Local hotel operators should be more flexible in imposing dress code for their employees.

The local management of international hotel chains should request their headquarters to waive the ban on
frontline female Muslim staff from wearing the headscarf.

Rightfully, the hospitality industry should reflect the country’s diversity, that has been a major draw
for foreign tourists over the years.

Islam is a major religion in this country and it makes no sense to ban the headscarf. Just because the rule has been in place for a long time does not make it right.

This issue should be considered in the wider context of plural Malaysia that celebrates diversity. Hotel
operators need to play their part in promoting the “Malaysia, Truly Asia” slogan.

They should protest one-size-fits-all rules that do not take into account local sensitivities, that reeks of discrimination.

So long as the attire does not hamper an employee from effectively carrying out their jobs, the clothing should not be banned.

On a related note, clothing preference is a personal choice. In public, no one should be told what is
proper attire and what is not, so long as it is within the confines of the law.

Of late, some government agencies had stepped into moral policing by denying entry into its premises, some members of the public deemed to have dressed inappropriately.

Such decisions are often arbitrary. These civil servants who try to impose their personal values on the public’s dress code, is behaving no differently from multinational companies imposing dress codes that are insensitive to local settings.

Such attitude is not helpful in a plural society, which ought to embrace diversity. Embracing diversity
can go a long way in building the much-needed bridges in a society riven by radicalized elements that
manifests in issues like how a shop in Johor only serves one ethnic group.
