“When we are together she brings out the best in me. I didn’t expect that but with her, I’m capable of doing things that I have never done in my life. It just comes naturally. I don’t like confrontation. I run from my problems. With Scha, everything needs to have a solution before she can move on. So now, I overcome my fears, I confront my problems.”

The comment immediately caused a stir on social media, with Netizens claiming the remark was out of line and rude.
Awal responded to the comment “It’s sad when people judge what they see based on Instagram. All I can say is you’re nothing but a total stranger. Whether my child’s development is slow or fast, that’s my problem, not yours.”
Awal Ashaari Accident
On 29th March 2015 Awal Ashaari was involved in a road accident while travelling to TV3’s Jom Heboh Carnival in Melaka City which almost claimed his life. On 29th March 2018 he recollected the memory in an Instagram post.
“Three years ago today at 11.15am, an accident changed my life and perceptions forever. I was given a second chance to live and I promise I will never take things for granted again. To all of you, I want to share my video for the first time and hope it will be an inspiration. At first, I didn’t want to talk about my accident, since I’m a pretty sensitive person, but today I’ve plucked up my courage to talk about it as best as I can. It’s also good to have life insurance, and in my case I didn’t have it, so I had to fork out thousands of ringgit to cover a year and six months of medical treatment. “I dread to think, what if I didn’t survive. My wife, my kid and parents would’ve been unable to get compensation.”
