Sehati Berdansa

aI know there are gonna be tons of reviews on Sehati Berdansa, so aku malas nak tulis panjang lebar about the actual event, especially seeing I didn't really follow it throughout the debut season.

Having watched a few episodes, it was rather painful to watch the celebrity couples gerak cam kayu that it made me feel all the more stronger about not following it.

Still, malam tadik final aku gi gak. Not so much for the actual competition - tapi nak catch up on friends I used to be close with.

Of course, one couple I knew them separately before they got married. Tapi meka ni awal da eliminated tapi sebab meka pon. Of course aku cita pasal pasangan As dari kumpulan Feminin dulu dan Azman Adnan, bekas pemain bolasepak Selangor (ok so he played for a few other teams, DBKL the first tak silap aku, and I think the last was Negeri Sembilan).

Seronok sangat jumpa meka nih. Memula serempak backstage masa tuh sebab aku parking keta aku that area. Bumped into everyone getting ready. First person aku bump into abang Azman, tapi tak sempat chat, walaupun aku sempat say hi. Moka dia blur... tak ingat la tuh. Well, considering the last time we met was I think in 1993 or 1994, no surprise gak.

The men from the six eliminated teams getting ready.


Moved a little bit further lak, ada pasangan 'kawan' nih lak. Sempat tuh posing walaopon running through their script.

Ever ready to pose - Linda and Fahrin. Kawan je ek?


Grabbed a seat, and then since it was some time headed backstage again sebab tadik rush nak chat tak sempat bebetul tegur everyone.

Caught up with Azman again. Sebab earlier dia tak cam aku (after 13 years or so tak jumpa - no surprise la)... started refreshing his memory time kita lepak skali dulu.

Bila aku cakap aku dak SSFC, fan club tuk Selangor FC, satu satunya ahli bukan Melayu dulu la... dia cam ingat ingat sikit.

Tapi bila pakai the privy info baru dia recall.

"Ala...dulu...padang FAS, pas practise, lepak kedai Pak Man...ngan empat budak hitam and (takleh cita sini)...."

Then he was laughing and we caught up. Lama siot tak jumpa bang Azman. Besh! Dia dulu one of my fave footballers - time tuh memang takde orang leh lawan dia la. Aku ikut career dia ever since dia moved from Kuala Lumpur to Selangor punya team and memang fan gila time tu yang aku masih belajar.

Kira hampir semua game home and away aku wajib ada. Yang tak dapat pegi dulu pun Sabah dan Sarawak, and Brunei sebab cost factor (studying ma masa tuh) and also Kelantan (always dangerous sebab kena ujan batu kang)

Hah...jangan tatau. Aku ni footie freak gak dulu. My teams were Selangor and Manchester United. Smakin tua... guess my minat slowly hilang. Skang haram nak ikut bola. Kalao gi mamak orang tengok Star Sport - kecoh kecoh... aku blah terus sebab tak tahan bising.

After that session - tanak kacau dia bersiap, so made said a few more his.Bumped into Hanapfe, laki si Haiza... dia nih kelakar. For some reason, ko dengar dia gelak pun rasa nak gelak skali.

Matilah... Haiza pinjam laki ko jadik model sini jap sebab sempat snap pic dia tengah wat lawak.

Hanapfe nih...


And then there were the unmentioned singers yang nyanyi smalam in Farhan and Rosma. Bab samba ke salsa tuh si Farhan yang wat, while Rosma did the joget songs. Piccie time!

Rosma dan Farhan. Kesian tak dengar pun mention - and wish they had let Farhan sing the theme song to Sehati Berdansa live.


Didn't have much time to mingle and chat, and also didn't want to get into anyone's way - so after a brief chat with Radhi, and discovering my camera had run out of batteries (won't happen after this because I just got a rechargeable pack), scooted to the front to enjoy the show. Here are some pics - from the start... and then masa pas umum result. Malas nak komen lebih pasal keputusan, but it's not like we didn't know who was going to win, kan?

No problems with it cause could hardly care about it. Managed to get some batteries off Iqram (tima kasih) and snapped away.

As the show was starting. Too many colours!


The park in the Putrajaya International Convention Centre that was my smoking area for many a commercial break.


Time nak umum result.


Announced - and roll credits!


Mobbed! By photographers and fans.

Have to compliment the kids who did the tap sequence though. I think of all the performance yesterday night, termasuk lapan choreographer masa intro tuh, bebudak tuh the best lah! They were helluva a lot more professional and in synch with each other showing that they had worked hard on their routine, and came off as total pros. Can't say much for anyone else who danced throughout the remainder of the program.

Yeap, I'm trying to be nice... especially since it is for charity. So no mention of the loud, garish outfits, the cheesy techno music, or the wrong choice of performances.

Nope... none of that. Just wished other organisations got the money though. I know the Malaysian Association for the Blind, the Malaysian AIDS Council and the Kiwanis Down Syndrome Society (can't remember their exact name) needs the funding a lot more for the lack of funds flowing in. Oh well...

Made my way to the press conference and post party before the mob hit, so managed to chow down awal and get a nice shot of Putrajaya from the terrace deck where the event was held.

Nampak very the futuristic.


So time tuh ler dapat catch up. Si As mati mati nak perkenalkan aku ngan Azman. See, the last time aku hang out ngan As pun was I think in 1996, sebelom dia even jumpa Azman. After that we all just lost contact.

Aku kenai As I think sometime in 1994 masa aku kat college in Ampang, because I was... erm dating someone in that group she was in. Matilah no further info on that.

So we became buds and she was my party mate masa zaman Boom Boom Room Kuala Lumpur.
When they got married, aku terkejut, sebab tak sangka two people I knew separately had hitched, tapi tak kesempatan. And because I didn't go for the weekly Sehati Berdansa progrsam, tak kesempatan ler meet with them.

"Hah.. dia ni member aku dulu time party party," si As nak perkenalkan.

"Eh matilah ko... aku kenal laki ko sebelom ko pun kenal dia," aku gelak.

"Tak kisahlah... aku nak kenalkan gak," si As tergelak gelak.

Matila... dari time aku kenai dua orang ni, kicik jer... half my size. Merasalah celah meka skang ala happy family lak semua bolat. Well, all of us grow up... or sideways... sooner or later.

To my former sis... (sebab lama tak lepak former la) Asfarina, all the best, gurl, in everything. And to abang Man... jangan tambah bulat agik wei...


Moving on... korang perasan tak ada someone kat Sehati Berdansa punya finale tuh. Kak Ogy la... pengkritik jemputan. Tertanya tak pasal kehadiran kak Ogy? Hah...tengok... sampai kedudukan kat PC pun... special sikit.



So what exactly was she doing there? Nih some pre-season Akademi Fantasia musim keenam gossip.

Sebenarnya aku sebelum ni da dengar banyak spekulasi pasal kak Ogy punya potential involvement in the upcoming season.

Ada yang kata permanent pengkritik lagi... then ada sumber kata dia la bakal host pengganti Aznil dan bukan Sarimah atau Zainal Alam Kadir, and tak kurang juga yang membisik dia nih bakal PENGETUA untuk Akademi Fantasia akan datang.

Any truth in it?

Potentially... maybe.

Sebab there must be a reason for her high profile appearance and association kan? Do you see Linda Jasmine or EE there in the press conference up front? No? So who is Ogy going to be.. I mean in what position? Dengan promosi camni mesti ada sesuatuh kan?


"Tahniah ek kak Ogy kerana benda tuh bulan tiga nanti tuk program Astro tuh" aku usik.

"Eh... mana ada!!!!!!" gelak kak Ogy before running off, shouting an additional remark of "Mulut jahat!!!!" and then more laughter. Oops...pecah lobang ke? Oh, I guess I wasn't supposed to suspect. Merasalah.

Well, knowing production Akademi Fantasia slalu last minute, I wouldn't expect anything to be signed on YET, tapi I sense some potential in her name being one of the favourites.

Well, Sarimah ke... Alam ke... Ogy ke... semua aku stuju. Jangan AC Mizal dah ler. Puke! Ok lar guys... tired... nak wrap up this entry. Enjoy the rest of the pics.

The trophy - er... cam beli kat Hot Market lak.


Vanida and Rashidi - the champs. Don't you guys think Shidi ni cam Jalaludin Hassan da rupa dia?


Linda tangkap feel pose jap.


Sorry malas sangat letak bebanyak pics. Hope these will do. Later, guys...
