If you watched Malaysia’s TV3 this morning at 7:45 am, you would have seen me performing two poems (“Superman” and “My Dad’s Obsessed With Elephants”) and being interviewed (later with my mom and brother). The program in which I was featured is “Malaysia Hari Ini (Malaysia Today)”.
I got to know how they did the broadcasting and stuff.
My father recorded me performing “Superman”, but he captured only a short video of the interview because there was no more space in his borrowed video camera.
I had to arrive there at 7:00 am. At first, I was nervous and my knees were trembling like leaves because it was live and if I made any mistakes, it can’t be modified! But fortunately, the whole process was smooth and steady.
Then, I went for the interview. It was in Malay. I performed another poem, “My Dad’s Obsessed With Elephants” in the interview. Then after 5 minutes, my mother and brother came into the show and got interviewed.
Here are the video clips that my father took:
Here’s a quick look around the TV3 studio:
And here’s me performing “Superman”. I used the electric keyboard to make the sound effects.
Here’s a quick clip of the interview. It stopped abruptly because the space in the camera reached its limit.
Update (19th July 2009): I have uploaded the video sTV3 contributed. I hope you’ll enjoy it. I am looking forward to translate it and give it English subtitles soon! Anyway, here they are!

Part 3 of 3
My mother was called on unexpectedly to be interviewed. That’s why she felt so embarrassed that she had neither put on make up nor dressed up.
And here are some photos taken by my dad.
Actually, my brother was invited to dance there, that’s why he was in his ‘Michael Jackson’ suit. But since my father didn’t bring along the music CD, he couldn’t dance. That’s why he looked a bit sad. Anyways, you can watch him dancing on YouTube.
I am looking forward to upload the proper video that TV3 will contribute soon. Stay tuned! (As you can see, I have uploaded the video that TV3 contributed. Just scroll up a bit to see it.
I hope you enjoyed the videos and the photos!
