Yes, you read that right. It’s been 8 months since I started hosting on TV again. Sorry it took me this long to update.
I auditioned for the show last year when I was about 8 months pregnant. Truth be told, I wasn’t sure if I would make the cut for several reasons; one, the show was primarily in Bahasa Malaysia and mine wasn’t exactly the best and two, Miles (my son) would have been so young when the show started and I was worried I wouldn’t be able to cope. (He was 2 months old when the show started) Despite my doubts and concerns, I went for it anyways because it was too good of an oppportunity to pass up and of course, I’ve missed doing TV. It had been 2 years since I’d done any TV work.
To my surprise, I got a call back after the first audition, made it through the second and fast forward, here I am! Yours truly is currently one of the 8 hosts of a brand new morning talk show on NTV7 called Feel Good Show. If you think that once you become a TV host, you never have to audition for another show, think again! Well, unless you’re Oprah, Ellen or Ryan Seacrest I suppose.
For those of you who have been following my career, you’d know that I started off as a live late night 15-minute talk show host. Well, this is the other end of the spectrum. The show is in the AM and an hour and a half long. Also, this time around, I am mostly speaking in Malay when I used to only host in English.
The morning bit sort of works to my advantage because it means that I have the rest of the day with Miles and despite the 7am call time, waking up early isn’t a problem for me at all. I am so used to it after the little sleep I’ve been getting since Miles was born. As for the Malay bit, I’d like to think my BM is improving after being on the show for 8 months. It’s not perfect but then again, we’re Malaysians right? So rojak lah.
Just to give you a little insight into what the show is about; it’s a variety talk show whereby we talk about anything and everything under the sun. From trending news to fitness, to health, to fashion, to beauty, to women and men related issues, to awareness, to recipes, to DIYs, to music and so much more. Presented in a casual, fun and light-hearted manner, the show is designed to connect to viewers of all ages and kick start your day in a positive manner while exposing you to meaningful topics and new ideas. At least, that’s what I hope to achieve when I’m on the show. I’d like to think of the show as a fresh new take to morning talk shows here in Malaysia.
Feel Good Show airs Mondays to Fridays at 9am – 10.30am on NTV7. I’d definitely love to hear your thoughts if you’ve seen it. So comment below!
