PUTRAJAYA: While many people continue to repay their housing loans past their twilight years, 25-year-old Rosniza Din already has a luxurious apartment to call her own in Malaysia’s silicon city, Cyberjaya. 

The financial consultant said she couldn't wait to move into her new RM400,000 home at Cyberheights Villa, which capped a string of prizes she won in the sixth season of the popular television game show Roda Impian

The lucky winner from Hulu Langat, Selangor, who became the season’s Grand Champion, collected the mock key to the Country Heights Holding's apartment from its chief operating officer CS Ong. 

“I could not believe that I would one day walk away as the champion,” said Rosniza, who also won a TD2000 car worth RM184,000 en route to the top prize. 

She also won a RM22,115 voucher from Habib Jewels, a RM15,000 voucher from Little Egypt, RM 1,500 worth of goods from Lightcraft, a RM1,500 voucher from Chilles and cash prizes totalling RM40,115. 

Rosniza's prizes amounted to over RM600,000. 

An Astro subscriber and ardent Roda Impian fan, she did not think she would win as she had spun the wheel of fortune to muflis (bankruptcy) on the second day of the semi-finals. 

“But I was lucky I had the 'insurance card' that I used to retain my collected points,” added Rosniza, who went on the show six times. She said she owed it all to her parents, Haji Din Dollah and Hajah Jamilah Ahmad, who encouraged her to audition for the programme. 

Meanwhile, the show’s host, Halim Othman, said he would be doing his last spin soon to make his fortune elsewhere. 

“I’m planning to focus on my company, Halim Othman Incorporation Sdn Bhd, which will handle public speaking seminars and courses,” said the 38-year-old bachelor who helmed the show for six years and 1,040 episodes.  

Actor Hani Mohsein would replace Halim.
