FOR any lo­cal fe­male celebrity who is go­ing to get mar­ried, the typ­i­cal ques­tions asked by the me­dia would be about cook­ing for her hus­band-to-be, hon­ey­moon plans and well ... what does the fu­ture hold in terms of ca­reer.

If any of th­ese ques­tions strike you as over­whelm­ing for a brideto-be, then ac­tress Siti Saleha must have the world’s best poker face as she showed no signs of prewed­ding jit­ters.

Then again, she cred­ited her calm fa­cade to some­thing else.

“This is why I have beau­ti­ful make-up on to­day. Oth­er­wise, you can tell how stressed I am!” she said dur­ing a re­cent in­ter­view in Kuala Lumpur.

So, will she be more ac­tive in the kitchen af­ter mar­riage? Why, yes and she is even get­ting recipes from fi­ance Lutfi Azhar’s mother.

“I have learned how to make ayam masak se­mur, a Jawa-style dish,” she of­fered.

Siti, 27, even pre­pared the dish for host Sheila Rusly when she ap­peared on celebrity cook­ing show Ke­tuk Ke­tuk Ra­madan re­cently.

You have to give the EnglishMalay beauty some brownie points for choos­ing to pre­pare a dish that is sig­nif­i­cant to her fu­ture hus­band’s fam­ily.

“I don’t want to em­bar­rass my­self. You can’t go into a cook­ing show with­out know­ing how to make some­thing,” she shared.

Her idea of a wed­ding cer­e­mony is to have fun, and she also hopes it will be a com­fort­able af­fair for ev­ery­one at­tend­ing it.

“I’m not ex­pect­ing a wed­ding-ofthe-year type of an event. I don’t want that la­bel. I try to keep it lowkey. I just want it to run smoothly,” she said.

Siti first met 31-year-old Lutfi, who works as a gov­ern­ment of­fi­cer, through a mu­tual friend at a birth­day party three years ago.

“Af­ter that ini­tial meet­ing, we never spoke to each other. But I have a friend who would al­ways tell me that Lutfi sent his re­gards. I was like ‘Who?’ be­cause I can’t re­call who he was re­fer­ring to.

“Then at an­other birth­day party, Lutfi came up to say hi and we started talk­ing for a while,” she said. “I don’t know how, but since then we just sangkut (got stuck to each other) ... like that lah!”

The pair is set to wed to­mor­row, and a re­cep­tion will take place on Sat­ur­day. As for life af­ter mar­riage, Siti said that Lutfi is sup­port­ive of her act­ing ca­reer and is happy to to see her con­tinue to be ac­tively in­volved the en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try.

“I’m cur­rently mulling over a few drama of­fers,” she let on.

Lutfi pro­posed to Siti while they were on hol­i­day in Mex­ico last year.

Does she plan to make an­other trip for their hon­ey­moon?

“We haven’t dis­cussed hon­ey­moon plans. In this day and age, I’m go­ing on a hon­ey­moon at a later date.”
