Heheh! I couldn't believe that Dato' Sharifah Aini would do it! I approached her cautiously and asked if she would do a running pose for me. I almost sensed a "no" coming from her. I mean she is Sharifah Aini. The Biduanita Negara. The diva. The grand dame of Malaysia showbiz.
But hey...She did it for me anyway after I showed her the cute running pose of Sheila Majid. Thank you Kak Pah! You made my day!
