Astro U-Wartawan

Tuesday, 26 May 2009

I was invited as a guest for U-Wartawan (Astro Awani, channel 501) The topic was rude Malaysians. You can listen to the interview here. Didn't think I did a good job, it's been too long since I was a guest on a Malay program.

This program is interactive. They get the man-on-the-street to give their opinions on Facebook and they choose the best inputs for airing. The session which is aired live is recorded in a corner of the Astro Awani office in Menara Maybank, KL. You can see the cameraman holding a hand-held camera in the second picture. The camera is strapped onto the waist but you still need a pair of strong hands to keep the contraption steady.

Did you know that Astro provides transport for interview guests who can't make their way to the studio on their own? Usually I drive myself to the tv stations but since this interview was at night and I wasn't sure of the way, Astro sent a driver to pick me from my house. Cool!

With Nazri Kahar, the talk show host, and my son
