THE announcement by actress Fasha Sandha on the location of her wedding ended speculation that she had secretly married her boyfriend Rizal Ashram Ramli, fondly known as Jejai, reported Mingguan Malaysia.
The television star also promised that she would not hide her wedding with Jejai from the media.
“We have decided to get engaged at the end of April.”
The wedding reception is expected to be held at Fasha's house in Ampang, Selangor, which was given as a present by the groom-to-be.
Although she did not reveal the exact location, the Malay daily reported that the couple had chosen April 29, a day after Fasha's 28th birthday.
> A children's specialist at Pakar Perdana Hospital had never expected that she would marry former national bodybuilder, two-time Mr Universe and six-time Mr Asia Datuk Abdul Malek Mohd Noor.
Describing it as fate, Dr Wan Asma Wan Ismail, 52, said she and Malek, 55, would tie the knot at her home in Kelantan on March 12, reported Kosmo Ahad!
“I did not expect this as we only got to know each other not very long ago,” she said.
Wan Asma, who was divorced in 2006 and has seven children and four grandchildren, said Malek's honesty and sincerity won her heart.
She said her future spouse was the one who chose the wedding date as it was the same day he left for Mecca last year and prayed to meet a woman he could marry.
Wan Asma, who is from Bachok, said they met when Malek became an ambassador to a healthcare product.
“I contacted him to find out how to use the product on Dec 24 last year.
“It was only after three weeks that I finally met him,” she said.
