Look Ma, I’m Gonna Be On TV! (soon)

When I was a kid, my mom believed I will appear on TV someday, and that might be a fulfilled prophecy soon – in a very unexpected way.

I answered @kim_rani1 ‘s invite to play an extra in a historical documentary with the We Are Reenactors (WAR) group.

So I spent Christmas with the group and the producer crew shooting some scenes in a few parts of a kampung.

Even though just a few scenes, it was tiring and they made a lot of preparation beforehand. I just waltzed in the night before with no training, just enthusiasm.

It was good fun, good laughs and short break from city life.

I thank the WAR boys and the producer crew for the experience and letting me be part of it even in a small way.

The 60 minute documentary is expected to be out sometime in (August?) 2022 on RTM. Again, I played an extra so don’t blink or you’ll miss me out.

Blast From The Past (2001-2003)

I was clearing up boxes at home when I came across a stack of old CDs. It took me effort to find a laptop with CD drive just so I can open a treasure trove of old files and photos from the past.

(Can’t believe I am saying that, I mean, it’s hard to accept that CDs are obsolete now, just as floppy disks and cassettes before it!)

I took very few photos of myself before the age of smart phones. I don’t think I even took a single video back then! Which makes the few photos like these all the more precious to me.

I won’t show them all though; more than half a lifetime later and some are still embarrassing reminders, hahaha!
