ACTRESS and producer Datuk A. Aida is leaving the fate of her relationship with social media influencer and actor Wak Doyok to God after a video of them went viral recently, reported Berita Harian.
In an interview, the 52-year-old said she did not wish to divulge more about her relationship with the 43-year-old male fashion icon, whom she had known since 2016.
“I have known him for a long time. Wak Doyok is my best friend forever and he is very loving.
“But as far as how serious our relationship is, I don’t want to comment further. But just pray for me if we are meant to be,” she said.
Aida, whose real name is Zaidah Awang, said her ideal partner was someone who knew how to style and take care of himself, adding that Wak Doyok’s funny, stylish and caring nature attracted her.
Asked on Wak Doyok’s mother’s hesitance to accept a divorcee, Aida said she was aware of the matter.
“But I leave it to fate. If Wak Doyok’s mother gives us the green light, then it is fated. But so far, I have yet to meet his mother,” she said.Aida said initially, she was not keen on remarrying after several failed marriages, with the last one ending in 2019. But after three years of being single, she felt lonely.“My children advised me to find someone with a career. So, Wak Doyok fulfils the criteria I am looking for,” said Aida.
> Kosmo! reported that a woman rode a total distance of 687.6km on a motorcycle between Mentakab, Pahang, and Kota Masai, Johor, to vote in the 15th General Election – with her two-year-old daughter in tow.
A video of single mother Nur Fazilah Nin, 39, on the bike with her daughter went viral on social media after she was filmed stopping at a traffic light in Labis.
Travelling long distances on a motorcycle is no big deal for Nur Fazilah, who also rode from Mentakab to Johor Baru to visit her eldest son recently.
“Many people criticised me for taking a small child on a motorcycle, but I have no choice as that is the only vehicle I have.
“If I take the bus, it would cost more,” said Nur Fazilah, who has another seven-year-old daughter being looked after by her mother in Kota Masai.
“Only my youngest daughter is with me while my son goes to school in Johor Baru,” she added.
