Soon to Wak down the aisle

FORMER TV3 personality Azrinaz Mazhar Hakim is engaged to Instagram personality Wak Doyok in a private ceremony, Mingguan Malaysia reported.

The ceremony was held at Azrinaz’s home in Desa Hartamas here in Kuala Lumpur on July 23.

A source told the Malay daily that the ceremony was attended mainly by immediate family members.

Their relationship began with Azrinaz, 37, and Muhammad Azwan Mohd Nor, better known as Wak Doyok, 36, starting out as good friends last year.

The two never confirmed their relationship despite uploading numerous photos of them together on social media.

According to the source, the couple have not fixed a wedding date.

Azrinaz has two children, Pengiran Muda Abdul Wakeel, 10, and Pengiran Anak Puteri Ameerah Wardatul Bolkiah, 8, from her previous marriage to the Sultan of Brunei.

She became His Royal Highness’ third wife in a ceremony in August 2005, and was divorced in June 2010.

Wak Doyok became famous on Instagram for his sartorial photos in menswear and has amassed 1.3 million followers.

He has since branched out as a TV host and has his own line of men’s products. This will be his first marriage.

> PERSONAL shoppers for luxury goods could earn as much as RM30,000 during festive seasons, as the orders would pour in, Metro Ahad reported.

In the frontpage report, 32-year-old personal shopper Shima Ghazali said she could earn between RM20,000 to RM30,000 during the Hari Raya season.

Personal shoppers take orders for designer leather bags, small leather goods and accessories at designer boutiques overseas before shipping them to customers in Malaysia as well as neighbouring countries like Singapore and Indonesia.

Shima, who is based in San Diego, United States, earns between RM10,000 and RM15,000 for each shopping order on normal months.

Another personal shopper Kartina Khamis, 33, said she had once spent RM200,000 in a single shopping trip to Europe and many of her customers were not even VIPs or celebrities.

She said customers prefer personal shoppers as their prices were 30% to 50% cheaper than stores here.-thestar
