KUALA LUMPUR: “It’s not easy to find hired hand whom you can trust your little ones with while you go out to work,” said scriptwriter-actor Fadzil Zahari.
And because of this, together with his actress wife Yana Samsudin, had decided from the beginning to work around caring for their little one on their own.
Fadzil said that he and his wife were fortunate to have jobs which allowed them to take turns in caring for their son Aisy Mateen, 2.
“The flexibility that we have makes it possible to arrange our schedules in such a way that Aisy can be with either of one of us.
“When I have to be in the office, I do take my son with me. Sometimes I leave him with his toys, so that I’ll be able to focus on my work,” explained the 34-year-old brother of actor Datuk Farid Kamil who also runs an artiste management company.
He said this when commenting on the recent tragedy of five months’ old Adam Rayqal whose remains were found in his babysitter’s freezer.
“What happened to Adam Rayqal is beyond tragic. It’s also one of the reasons why we would never send our son to be cared by anyone else,” said Fadzil when met at Empire Film Solution’s Hari Raya open house at Dataran Karyawan Finas in Hulu Kelang recently.
