Probably, a better title would be; Who would Dr Sheikh Muszaphar marry? I’m just playing with the title.
Anyway, news just broke that Malaysia’s first astronaut (or space flight participant, if you’re so inclined to describe him as that) would like to end his bachelorhood sometime before 2009. This leaves him with roughly 13 months of freedom 😉
While declaring that he would want to get married by then, Dr Sheikh Muszaphar did not say if he had any girlfriend or was seeing anyone special at the moment.
He merely smiled when the question was posed to him twice by reporters at the Parliament Lobby yesterday when he met MPs and attended the luncheon hosted by the Backbenchers Club.
Earlier, he said: “I am already 35, going on 36 and hope to be married by 2009.”
Dr Sheikh Muszaphar wants to end a two-year contract that he signed with the Government which requires him to remain single so that he could concentrate on the space programme.
Wow, I didn’t knew that there’s a vow of celibacy in the space programme contract. Anyway, I believe Dr Sheikh Muszaphar has done a great job in inspiring younger generations that anything is possible. Hope you’ll enjoy married life!
Let’s see if I get an invitation. Well, even if I could just get your address, I’d be more than happy to send some wedding flowers your way
