Malaysian celebs get datukship
Rosyam Nor

MALACCA - Actor and producer Mohamed Noor Shamsuddin, better known as Rosyam Nor, said he would not change his lifestyle despite receiving the Darjah Pangkuan Seri Melaka (DPSM) award, which carries the title Datuk.

He received it in conjunction with the 75th birthday of Yang Dipertua Negeri of Malacca Tun Mohd Khalil Yaakob in Dewan Seri Negeri here yesterday.

Rosyam, 46, said after being involved in the filming industry for almost 30 years, he had never needed to hire a personal assistant and was used to that kind of lifestyle.

He played the role of a gangster in KL Gangster 2, now screening in cinemas.

Also receiving a similar award was Harimau Muda A coach Ong Kim Swee.

Ong said the award was a motivation to improve the performance of the Malaysian football team, particularly the Harimau Muda A squad.

On the preparation for the Myanmar Sea Games, he said the squad would be training in Jordan next month.

Rock legend Ramli Sarip was also present to receive Darjah Pangkuan Seri Melaka (Kehormat) which carries the "Datuk" title.

Ramli, Rosyam, and Ong were among the 427 recipients honoured with the state awards in the second session of the investiture ceremony.
