“My mother had a great sense of humour and a knack for making everything fun.
“I really adore Siti Nurhaliza! She is adorable, polite and gracious. Every time there’s huge awards or events in Indonesia, Siti Nurhaliza will certainly be there. Her song that I love the most is Cindai. I used to run a hair salon business in Kuala Lumpur but I rent it to other people because my mother is sick and I need more time to take care of her. My mother and I have so much in common, especially Siti Nurhaliza.”
“I’m planning to go back to my hometown this May to send my mother. I’ll be taking a short break and spend time with her. Currently, I’m helping a friend of mine selling t-shirt around town and she will follow me to the store. At least I can finish my work early and spend more time with my mother at home. She used to tell me not to rent the salon to others but as the saloon closed at night; I might not have more time with her. I sacrificed the saloon for the sake of my mother and never regret it.”
One thing that resonated with me, even as a small child, she seemed to enjoy her own company and found ways to entertain herself. She would put humorous notes in everything that happened in her life. Perhaps that is why she is my best friend for life.”
