Anzalna Nasir is about to welcome her second child – an Aidilfitri baby – this Hari Raya season. Yesterday (Tuesday, 5th April), the 34-year-old beauty made an appearance as 1 of the 3 ambassadors for HABIB at the newly-opened store in Pavilion Bukit Jalil.
During her speech, the Malaysian actress recalled being surprised when she was approached to be a part of HABIB’s “Rantaian Kasih” Hari Raya campaign alongside her mother Puan Azlina Jahaya and influencer/ inspiring business woman Ms. Erin Adlina.
“I was quite surprised actually, when the HABIB team came to me. In fact I asked, ‘Are you sure you want a heavily-pregnant woman?’” Anzalna was quoted as saying. But there was no question as all 3 women were chosen for their great personalities – strong, driven and family oriented, on top of their love for fashion. The “Dendam Aurora” star also praised HABIB for making the 8-hour campaign shoot a fun and smooth process to go through.
Although Anzalna already knows the gender of the baby ahead of the delivery date next month, she’s keeping it to herself for now. “Alhamdulillah, I’m already 8 months into my pregnancy. This time around, I’d like to surprise friends and family when my child arrives. My 2-year-old son Eidrees is already anticipating his younger sibling, so that’s exciting,” she added.
This marks the second time Anzalna has been asked to be a HABIB ambassador. So what’s her favourite jewellery for this Raya collection? The actress cited the Oro Italia 916 gold jewellery as one of the highlights that caught her eye this season. Customers will be spoilt for choices during HABIB’s Raya campaign as there are a good mix of modern, contemporary heritage designs with elements of songket.
The Rantaian Kasih collection also features diamond bangles with songket inspired motives, stackable diamond rings, as well as bangles and bracelets in a variety of designs. Fret not gentlemen, a wide selection of Butang Baju Melayu and rings in diamonds and coloured gemstones set in silver palladium are offered at various of price points. Parents can also find the children’s collection here which include anklets, chains, bracelets, bangles, pendants and earrings in modern designs. Matching mother daughter sets are also available.
