KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 27 (Bernama) -- A week after the disappearance of her eight-year-old daughter Nurin Jazlin Jazimin, Norazian Bistaman today broke her silence and poured her heart out.
"I'm willing to sacrifice everything to get my child back," said the 35-year-old mother whose eyes looked swollen due to crying when Bernama met her at her house in Wangsa Maju here today.
"A mother would surely have her heart crushed when her beloved child is not by her side. I cry the moment I think of what has happened. If only I accompanied Nurin to the night market, surely she would not have gone missing," she said.
Nurin Jazlin, a Standard Two student of Sekolah Rendah Kebangsaan Desa Setapak, went missing after going alone to a night market about 100 metres from her house to buy her favourite snack - burger.
Norazian said that everytime the phone rang, her heart would jump, hoping that it would bring good news that Nurin Jaslin had been found safe.
"Almost all traders at the night market know Nurin, that's why I'm perplexed as to how she could have gone missing. Not that we have enemies," she said.
She also said that since her eldest, Nurin Jasira, nine, knew of Nurin Jazlin's disappearance, she was down with high fever.
Probably because they were very close and had never separated for a long period, she said.
Nurin Jazlin has two younger sisters -- Nurin Jazlina, six, and Nurin Jazlisa, one.
