Simon Cowell: Is this love?


Simon Cowell
One of the world's most eligible bachelors is getting married. Yes, I am talking about Simon Cowell, the best known judge on American Idol. 


His recent engagement to American Idol make-up artist Mezghan Hussainy ended weeks of speculation about his relationship with the Afghan-born beauty. The couple are expected to get married later this year. 


What does Hussainy, 36, have that the others don't? Only Cowell, 50, can answer that.


According to Cowell's UK rep Max Clifford, Cowell and Hussainy "are very suited". She is independent and speaks her mind. And the sharp tongue Cowell "likes that". They have known each for a long time and began dating last year. 


Other reports note that Cowell is a lot happier these days. Is that why his  criticisms of contestants on this season's American Idol seem softer? Cowell continues to offer comments of aspiring idols' singing abilities in his usual acerbic style but sounds less harsh somehow. 


If I am feeling generous, I would say that his recent remarks were tempered with compassion. Now I know why. Hussainy is making the wealthy Brit very happy. He is even talking about starting a family


When did the light bulb pop for Cowell? I really would like to know his "aha" moment when he realised that "this is it". 


People marry for various reasons not all of which are romantic. Men and women have been known to tie the knot for convenience, money or fear of growing old alone. 


What is your reason, Cowell? His mother, according to The Inquisitr, was "delighted" but "shocked" when her son told her that he was planning to settle down.


Still, it is reassuring to know that Cowell is not the confirmed bachelor that he appeared to be. It is said that everyone has a soulmate. Apparently Cowell has found his.

Behind the wheel at 60

Madam Susila arrives at a driving institute in Ipoh, Perak feeling nervous. This is her first time there. She is 47 years old and a recent widow.

He husband passed away four months ago in his car during an outing with the family. He was driving through Ipoh town when he suddenly complained of pain in the throat area. He pulled over to one side of a quiet road to take a short rest but went limp soon after.

Susila called for an ambulance immediately and medical personnel took her husband's body to the hospital.

The grieving widow and her three sons were left to sort out the affairs of the deceased man. It hit Susila then -- "I don't know how to drive," she recoiled in horror.

She discussed her concern with the boys and they agreed with her decision to enrol into a driving school. It must be said that Susila had wanted to take up driving as a young bride but her husband discouraged her, saying "I will be the driver in this family".

An evening with Gary Thanasan

Popular businessman Dato' Gary Thanasan held a social gathering in celebration of Diwali at his residence in Petaling Jaya yesterday.

The above picture shows Gary, who is holding his daughter, with Prestige magazine editor Saleha Ali and journalists Yani (Bernama), Suraya (Life & Times editor) and Meena (Life & Times).


Miss Malaysia (Universe) 1990 and Mrs Malaysia (World) 2004 Dato' Anna Lim came with her husband Dato' Jeffrey Lim and their two children.

The friendly pair sportingly posed for a picture.


Yani baked Gary, a former radio and TV show host, a classic dessert -- buttery rich Pineapple Upside Down Cake -- which brought back many childhood memories.

She is pictured here with Meena, who came to the party in her usual Bollywood style.

It was really a nice evening!

Thank you Gary!
