Eh Poh Nim at Traxx Fm

(With Yen Nee and DJ Mary)

Attended a radio interview at Traxx fm today. This is the first media interview for Do You Wear Suspenders? The Wordy Tales of Eh Poh Nim. It was one of the easiest sessions I've ever had because the DJ, Mary, kept to the prepared questions. Thanks to the assistant producer, Aeida, for arranging the interview. Ten copies of the book were given out to winners of an sms contest.

Do you wear suspenders?

Title: Do you wear suspenders? The wordy tales of Eh Poh Nim
ISBN: 9789675222085
Publisher: MPH Group Publishing Sdn Bhd

Price: RM32.90

This is a collection of anecdotes about the everyday life of Eh Poh Nim, a loquacious woman who launches into explanations of words and phrases at the drop of a hat.

Anyone with even a passing interest in the English language will find this book appealing and amusing. Phrases like "bake a tit," "Mrs. Malaprops nipples," "pie in the sky," "bananas and fruitcakes" and "satay mushrooms" may sound deliciously naughty or vulgar, but none of them are what they seem.

Eh Poh Nim, a punctilious wordsmith, enlightens readers on idioms, hyperboles, metaphors and other figures of speech with delightful humour and an insight into Malaysian life and its complexities and peculiarities.
