A MAN in Klang, Selangor, used curtain and bedsheet material to sew Hari Raya attire for his family, Metro Harian reported.

Syed Muhammad Shah Hasif Syed Othman, 30, said he used the material to stitch the outfits for his wife Fatin Syazwani Ishak, 23, and three-year-old son Syed Muhammad Nouie Jaeden El-Alawi.

He said this was not the first time he used such material to sew Hari Raya outfits for his family as he was forced to do so during the Covid-19 movement restrictions in 2020 and 2021.

“I also sewed Hari Raya outfits for my mother and sister and her three children to be worn on the first day of Hari Raya,” he said, adding that the outfits made from bedsheet would be worn by his wife and son on the fifth day of Raya.

Syed Muhammad, who took about two weeks to complete the eight sets of clothes for his family, posted his feat on TikTok.

> The daily also reported that firemen were called in to help calm and restrain a family dog which attacked two brothers in Penampang, Sabah.

During the incident in Taman Putera Pogun, the dog had bitten the hand of the 20-year-old brother while the other, 25, was injured on his thigh.

A spokesman for the Sabah Fire and Rescue Services Department said a team, accompanied by a fire truck and an emergency medical response vehicle, was rushed to the scene after receiving a call at about 3.50pm.

The spokesman said firemen spent several minutes to calm the dog down before restraining the animal.

The operation to subdue the dog lasted for almost an hour before the pet was returned to the family.
