COSMETICS entrepreneur Nur Sajat Kamaruzzaman (pic) is unfazed by criticisms of the “sexy” half shoulder dress she wore during the 32nd Anugerah Juara Lagu, Harian Metro reported.

She uploaded several video clips on Instagram, as well as photos of the green sequinned gown, designed by Gie Ismail, from the music awards show held last Sunday.

Her posts attracted heavy criticism from many netizens.

“It is all right – I am used to being teased and criticised,” Nur Sajat said.

“They can say whatever they want because they have their rights.

“If I entertain them, their comments will only get worse. So, I have decided ... to let them speak.”

The 33-year-old was previously dragged into another controversy when the Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (Jakim) met with her following rumours that she might be a transgender.

Nur Sajat claimed she never felt pressured by online criticism.

“I believe that when I wore the dress and received such attention, it meant (I am) known to the public.

“The criticism will not weaken me. Instead, it will give me strength to come forward with more unique designs,” she added.

 

> Tuah Abang, a one-eyed kid born on a farm in Kampung Jabang in Beaufort, Sabah, has died, Kosmo! reported.

The three-day-old kid was found lifeless by its owner, goat herder Awang Rosli Mat Taib, at about 9pm on Monday.

Tuah’s rare condition is known as cyclopia syndrome, which occurs in one out of every 16,000 animals born.

The condition occurs when the two hemispheres of the brain do not separate, resulting in the formation of a single central cavity with one eye, or sometimes partially fused or separate eyeballs.

Awang Rosli, 47, said the kid looked healthy at first but its condition soon deteriorated, adding: “It could not drink its mother’s milk as its mouth was too small.”
