KUALA LUMPUR: Two new pairs of baju kebaya are awaiting Nurin Jazlin Jazimin who has been missing for the past three weeks.
The two dresses, designed by her mother, Norazian Bistaman, were made by a tailor in Selama, Perak several days ago.
Although missing since Aug 20, Nurin’s parents are confident that they will be reunited with their daughter this Ramadan.
The 8-year-old girl’s father, Jazimin Abdul Jalil, said the family wanted to celebrate Hari Raya at his hometown in Selama.
"My instincts tell me that Nurin is still alive. She will be back with us during this Ramadan," said the 33-year-old taxi driver.
He added that this was the first time Nurin was not with them during the holy month.
"But my daughter is a survivor. She is a strong and brave girl. She will survive and our prayers will be answered."
He said Nurin who suffered from high blood pressure did not look sick.
"She just needs her regular medication. Without it, she may suffer a stroke."
Nurin turned eight on Sept 11. The only present that Jazimin and his 35-year-old wife offered were their prayers for her safe return.
"And when she returns, we will give her whatever she wants."
Yesterday, the Malaysian Crime Prevention Foundation distributed posters of Nurin to motorists at the Sungai Besi toll plaza here.
Cheras police chief Assistant Commissioner Rusli Ahmad also helped distribute the posters which contained numbers to be contacted.
