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.

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!

My year at The Rakyat Post

Dec 31, 2014, the last day of the year and the end of my one year stint at The Rakyat Post , an online news portal.
Educational is the best way to sum up my year at The Rakyat Post.
Leaving your comfort zone is intimidating at first; it has a steep learning curve. But now I wish I had done it sooner and the whole exercise reaffirms my motto: “learn, learn, learn”.
Einstein was spot on when he said, “Learning is not a product of schooling but the lifelong attempt to acquire it”.
When I left theNew Straits Times to join The Rakyat Post on Jan 3, 2014, I didn’t know what to expect.
Nelson Fernandez, also known was Mohd Ridzwan Abdullah, had invited me to join him at the website this time last year.



He was charged with assembling a team to provide content for the portal. And I am glad I said yes.
Switching from traditional journalism to online journalism is challenging, as anyone who had made that transition will tell you.
Editorial content is disseminated by way of the internet as opposed to pub…
