Wanita Hari Ini, TV3

Tuesday, 19 June 2007

I wrote in to Wanita Hari Ini asking if they'd like to interview me for my book, Honk! If You're Malaysian. They decided to do a segment on mummy writers and blogging, and asked if I could rope in two other authors.

That was how Yvonne Lee (The Sky is Crazy), Jamilah Samian (Cool Mum Super Dad) and I ended up at TV3 on Tuesday. It was my first time at their studio. Though the TV3 crew had interviewed me twice for Nona, those sessions were taped at my house.

I think we had more fun during the pre-interview segment when the hosts, Wardina and Ivy talked to us about what they were going to ask during the show. When the cameras started to roll, naturally anxiety came along for the ride.

L-R, Ivy, Wardina, me, Yvonne and Jamilah


Yvonne Lee said...

Hey, thanks a lot again for the recommendation! I remembered to mention that to my publisher.

She was so excited because she said the rating for TV3 viewership goes into millions.

Anyway, why lah our camerawoman took shots of us all with muka serius aje! I thought we all laughed and laughed, isin't ?

Maybe that time cannot take shots.

Thanks for the pix, got one laughing one, at least. Can email me the jpeg?

Thanks and yes, hope to meet again.

Yvonne, will email you the pix later. There were quite a lot of pix, but most of them aren't clear - my camera has seen better days.

Eva, Hi! Thanks for popping by. Mummy taught you how to make a comment, is it? Clever girl.
