Afraid that her current husband might leave her after completing his drug rehabilitation programme, centenarian Mek Wok Kundor is looking to marry again - for the 23rd time reported The Stars.
The 107-year-old, who married Mohd Noor Che Musa, 37, in 2005, said they lived blissfully until he volunteered to treat his drug habit in Kuala Lumpur in July.
Tok Wook, as she is fondly known, now believes her husband might leave her after his programme ends and settle down in Kuala Lumpur besides marrying a woman younger than her.
“Lately, there is this kind of insecurity in me,” she said.
Tok Wook, who lives in Kampung Bukit TokBat here, said she planned to visit Mohd Noor on the second day of Hari Raya if her neighbours were willing to drive her to Kuala Lumpur.
“I want to express my feelings and tell him that I am lonely without him and if he reciprocates, I will wait for him without thinking of another marriage,” she added
She said she felt lonely without a companion during Ramadan.
“I am not searching for a man as handsome as our Prime Minister, but someone to accompany me in my twilight years,” she said.
“I realise that I am an aged woman. I don’t have the body nor am I a young woman who can attract anyone.
“My intention to remarry is to fill my forlornness and nothing more than that.”
She, however, declined to talk about her past marriages and the number of children she has.
All she said about her kids was that they were old and dependent on their children.
While she spent her last Hari Raya with Mohd Noor’s family in Bachok Kelantan, Tok Wook will celebrate it this year with her neighbours.
“I will wear a baju kurung that was given as gift by my husband in January,” she said.
