The internet community have been buzzing non-stop after it was suspected that newlyweds Neelofa and PU Riz travelled from KL to Langkawi for a “honeymoon”.
Not long after the reports were made public, Chatime Malaysia released a statement on its official social media to clear the air on the matter.
As stated by the local beverage company, “Neelofa and Muhammad Haris (PU Riz) conducted business trips to three locations in the Northern Zone, namely Sungai Petani and Langkawi in Kedah, as well as Kangar in Perlis for the purpose of viewing sites for the upcoming Chatime branches in the northern states. The visit also involved staff from the Operations and Management department of Chatime Malaysia.
They continued, “Permission to cross state lines to travel to Langkawi was obtained from a nearby police station in compliance with the existing SOPs. We hope this statement will help to shed the light on all the confusion.”
Meanwhile, the Brickfields District Police have also confirmed that they have given permission to celebrity Neelofa and three other individuals to travel to Langkawi for work purposes, and not for a honeymoon as previously claimed. According to Deputy Chief Supt. Basri Sagoni, they were allowed to travel to the place on 27th March (Saturday) and are expected to come back a week after that (4th April).
“They were scheduled to arrive in Langkawi on 29th March and will be there until 2nd April before visiting the Chatime stores in Sungai Petani and Kangar the day after that. Therefore, I emphasised that the permit issued by the Sri Hartamas Police Station is for work and not honeymoon purposes,” Basri was quoted as saying.
Just when we thought the rumours ended there, one particular social media user came up with another shocking revelation about the case. Twitter account @LagaCawan claimed that the personal assistants for Neelofa and Chatime (“director’s office’) are sisters!
