Posted by jtsmyth8 on March 7, 2008

The wife of a slain disc jockey and her alleged teenage accomplice are expected to go on trial next month for murder. Aniza Essa, 25, and Muhammad Nasir Abdul Aziz, 17, on Thursday were committed to stand trial in the High Court.

Trial dates have been set for April 7 to 18.

The pair are accused of murdering Mr Manap Sarlip, 29, outside the couple’s flat at Block 74 Whampoa Drive on July 1 last year.

They were arrested separately a day after the killing.

Aniza and Muhammad Nasir had apparently met while they were working at a Beach Road pub. The teenager is said to be Aniza’s lover.

While the teen is charged with the murder, Aniza is charged with abetting his commission of the offence. (story)

Student sets record score of 294

Posted by jtsmyth8 on November 22, 2007

A St Hilda’s Primary pupil has scored a record 294 in the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE), beating the previous high of 292 set in 1993. Natasha Muhamad Nasir, 12, eclipsed the record set by Nanyang Primary’s Justin Lau in 1993.

Her score was ‘outstanding’, said the Singapore Examination and Assessment Board (SEAB) spokesman, as it was a good six points ahead of the next highest score of 288.

At St Hilda’s on Thursday, Natasha, flanked by her younger sister and mother, smiled shyly as reporters shot questions at her. In the background, her father was recording the scene with a camcorder. (story)
