Download Anita Sarawak - Ular mp3

WHEN Anita Sarawak returned home after 19 glittery years at Caesar’s Palace, Las Vegas, one might have expected her to settle down to a quiet existence. But the lady was far from being done.
She is still energetic, still gungho; her skin is flawless and she looks striking for her 53 years. It’s no wonder she is in constant demand as a spokesperson for various clinics.

But first things first. Her telecomedy Ajensi Melor enjoyed two successful seasons (a third might be in the offing this March) and she has just finished filming the telemovie Topeng (Mask).

At 53, grand diva Anita Sarawak is more active than people half her age. She has just signed with Astro for the sixth season of The Anita Talkshow, finished a film, released an album and has been appointed ambassador for YTL Hotels Spa. Come February, Anita will launch her own jewellery line. KEE HUA CHEE can barely keep up with this dynamo.

“Topeng is a psychological thriller with me playing a psychiatrist rooting out the baddies,” purrs the sultry diva, dripping in diamonds and assorted stones.

She waves a red talon at her English husband, whom she appears to be deeply besotted with.” My husband Mahathir Abdullah is the scriptwriter while Rashid Sibir is the director. In Topeng, a guy sees murders being committed in his dreams and it is up to me to sort it out. I hypnotise him and oops, I have revealed too much already. All I can say is that Topeng is very scary with unexpected twists. It is my first telemovie.’’

Moving into another dimension

Anita finished shooting Topeng in eight days with only one day off. She used her day off to launch her first English album in 20 years called Another Dimension.

“Though I sing in many genres, from pop to disco, to rock, R&B and country, this is the first time you will hear me sing in a soft, caressing, almost seductive voice. When you listen to this album, it’s like me standing next to you, singing just for you,” she explains soothingly. “The 10 songs were selected for their lyrics as the voice is dominant, not the accompanying music.’’

At a steep RM48, the CD is hardly a Christmas present I suggest. The lady bristles indignantly. “You can’t expect me to give it away for free!” she protests. “Nothing was sponsored. I was not paid a sen. I even bought the gown I wore on the cover.”

That eye-popper of a gown was hand-sewn by Kam and Ashley of Kapas Couture within a fortnight. The diva met the designing duo at Jewellery Circle’s “20 Most Glamorous Women Gala” earlier this year and was smitten. “The gown was inspired by one worn by Mahathir’s mother in the 1920s,” she says. Kapas’ version is artfully ruched in Thai silk and smothered in Swarovski crystals.

Recalls Kam, “Anita was so determined to flaunt an hourglass figure, she was literally losing weight by the day! She had three fittings and to our amazement, she kept shrinking each time! When I first took her waist measurement, it was 28½ inches. The second time she tried the dress, her waist was 27 inches and the day before the shoot, it was 26 inches! We kept taking in her dress.”
