Fiza O’s 30th Birthday Bash & Surprise Wedding Announcement…

It has been more than six weeks of inactivity in this blog and it’s not for the lack of materials. In fact I have quite a number of entries in store which I have yet to upload / post simply because I have been very busy with life in general. Coupled with the fact that I’m normally quiet during Ramadhan and the festive period afterwards, I thought I would let all the Hari Raya visits out of the way before plotting a return. And this return coincides with yesterday’s birthday bash held for RIA 89.7FM‘s “The O Show” anchor, Fiza O, at the Serangoon Gardens Country Club. It was no ordinary birthday bash as the birthday girl chose the event to announce her upcoming nuptials to none other than fellow colleague, Abdul Karim Sadali also known as DJ KC, whom we all know is the anchor behind the most popular weekly radio programme, “Misteri Jam 12“.

Here comes the groom-to-be…

In truth, the announcement was not a surprise to me, cos as recently as the August 2012 issue of Manja Magazine where he was on the cover along with Anugerah 2005 winner Hyrul Anuar, DJ KC had dropped hints that he would be holding a media presentation when announcing his wedding plans. As the days go by, it made sense to finally come out and announce to the world that both of them – sincere, honest and kind people that they are from knowing them – are finally getting betrothed. I think for some of us, it has been an open secret all along. I first got wind that they were together when I bumped into them twice in town circa 2005-2006, but I actually dismissed that as normal colleagues going out during their spare time. But messenger pigeons, metaphorically speaking, told me sometime last year that their wedding was imminent, and I cannot help but noted the care and attention KC displayed towards Fiza on a number of occasions.

Finally, the announcement that ended all speculations…

Kudos to the two of them for keeping things under wraps for so long. I have hung out with the groom-to-be countless times and God knows how many times I have probed him, subtly and directly, but he gave nothing away, out of respect and honouring a promise he made to his bride-to-be that when the time is right, they will announce it to the world. Even though it was not a surprise to me, I was still floored and had flutters in my belly when the announcement was made, such was the joy I felt that was being shared by them to the media brigade at the event which was attended by the couple’s colleagues from RIA 89.7FM and local celebrities Taufik Batisah, Fauzie Laily and Didicazli. The surprise on Taufik‘s face was priceless to say the least, as he walked into the event ballroom just as they were announcing who Fiza‘s groom would be. The only thing I am surprised about is how soon the wedding would be as I had initially speculated that it would be held somewhere in November, nearing KC‘s birthday.

For the record, the couple will be solemnised officially on 19 October 2012 at Sultan Mosque and receptions will be held over at the groom’s side the following day and the bride’s the day after. More than 24 hours on since their announcement, and I have seen hundreds of well-wishes on Facebook and Twitter for two of the most popular radio deejays on RIA 89.7FM. Their impending union is not the first amongst radio deejays in Mediacorp but it is indeed the first in the Malay radio fraternity since Warna 94.2FM‘s Ibrahim Jamil and Suharti Ali got together two decades ago. What is indeed a definite first is that this was the first media announcement of an upcoming wedding by a local Malay personality from the entertainment scene. I cannot think of other personalities doing this other than what Dato’ Siti Nurhaliza did back in 2006. But I think due to their popularity, the two lovebirds deserved to share it with their fans, listeners and supporters, and who are we to begrudge them of their happiness???

Congratulations KC and Fiza on your upcoming nuptials!!!

Thank you for inviting me to the event yesterday and for allowing me to be a part of the wedding as well. I pray that both of you will be in good health leading up to the event and it will be an event that will be most memorable in our hearts…

Well-known on RIA 89.7FM as a controversial and sensational critic able to invoke thought-provoking and sometimes, fiery responses from fellow listeners. Have since evolved into a distinguished blogger of reputable claim with takes on the Malay entertainment industry and football-related matters. Brutally honest and believes in only reporting the truth as I see, hear or experience it. Self-styled critic who does not mince his words and is definitely a non-conformist.
