Interview on TraXX Fm

I was interviewed by TraXX Fm's DJ, Jezza for the 101 segment from 11.15 a.m. to 12 noon. I had a great time on air.

"Just be yourself," Jezza said and so I was myself with Manglish and all that jazz-lah.

Though I had emailed them 20 questions for Jezza to ask me, we didn't stick to the list. There were lots of questions which I had to answer off-the-cuff. But I think it went all right.

Halfway though the show, Jezza decided to read out the chapter on Manglish. We had a blast. He read the good English part, I did the Manglish while Najee at the console was snickering away. There was a long pause during this segment because I was trying to stifle my laughter and carry on reading.

We also had listeners calling in. We awarded a book each to Chen (I think that's the name) from Melaka who has read Life's Like That (great!) and Sally who called all the way from Sibu.

There are 3 more copies to be given away, one per day for the next three days. Tune in TraXX Fm 100.1 (in the Klang Valley) from 10.00 a.m. to 1.00 p.m. for a chance to win an autographed copy of Honk! If You're Malaysian.

Later I may post up transcripts of this and other interviews after I've had a chance to transcribe the recording.

That's Najee at the console and Jezza in the lower left hand corner.

Najee, me and Jezza

With the producer, Mareaty
