Neelofa and Haris Ismail (Pu Riz) have once again become the talk of the town after it has been widely speculated that the pair are expected to tie the knot sometime in the near future.
Netizens were quick to assume that the lovebirds were getting engaged after the 31-year-old actress and her family members dropped some hints on their Instagram accounts.
Yesterday (November 1st), Neelofa posted a story on her Instagram where she wrote, “May we be blessed today by Allah SWT & may all planning go smoothly. Thank you Allah for making this fall into place perfectly. (smiling under the niqab).” Speculations sparked after people began wondering what exactly was taking place on that very day.
It wasn’t long before the entrepreneur’s mother posted a picture of her daughter and PU Riz on her Instagram, @noorkartini, hinting at some good news. That’s not all. She also uploaded a few IG stories which convinced everyone that the duo will eventually become one.
The event on that day, which involved the pair’s families, initially gave the impression that it was an engagement ceremony. However, sources have revealed that it was actually the act of “Merisik”, a Malay custom where the family of the man pays a visit to the family of the woman (a potential bride) to make sure the girl is still single.
According to Astro Awani, the ceremony, which was held in moderation, was only attended by close family members of the pair. Neelofa also received a ring from Haris’s family as a form of attachment between the two.
It is reported that their wedding ceremony will take place at the end of March 2021. We can already hear the wedding bells ringing!
