Controversial celebrity Neelofa had reportedly spent a whopping RM10,000 during her visit to a premise selling carpets in Nilai 3, Negeri Sembilan last Sunday.
The shop that was visited by Neelofa and her husband PU Riz is known as Naeem Carpet. It has about five branches situated at the area, reported Utusan. The branch that the couple went to is located at Lot 122-124.
A shop employee named Hussein claimed that the 32-year-old came with her spouse to buy carpets at their shop last weekend. He revealed, “Neelofa and her husband visited the shop and purchased a few stuff, including a high quality Iranian rugs, in addition to other types of carpets, which all cost around RM10,000.”
“The price for one Iranian carpet alone is RM3,000 and Neelofa bought around two to three rolls,” Hussein further dished to the publication. “But, her (Neelofa’s) actions have in turn caused problems and the police came to the shop yesterday morning to record our statements.”
At the same time, the staff informed that the carpet shop was visited by many people and the business went on as usual after the issue of Neelofa travelling interstate to buy carpets at their premises went viral. To quote Hussein, the issue involving the hijab entrepreneur has helped Naaem Carpet’s name gained more attention nationwide.
Meanwhile, in response to a slew of public figures flouting the Covid-19 SOPs numerous times, Head of the MCA Government Affairs Coordination Bureau, Michael Tay Chee Boon, has suggested for public figures to be sentenced to community service such as sweeping the floors in public areas, or even cleaning the public toilets.
“This punishment should be implemented to teach a lesson to those who deliberately violated the SOPs. They have the money, and paying the fine is definitely not a problem to them. So, apart from being compounded, hopefully these people will learn from their mistakes if they are sentenced to doing charity work,” he told Harian Metro.
