Merdeka!

Hey peeps..I've completed part 1 of MedikTV Merdeka special. Don't miss it on 1st September 2007 at 5 pm.

For those who missed the 'circumcision' episode that was aired in June, fret not! It will be repeated this Saturday 25th Aug, at 5pm. It's a very interesting story personally for me because we compared the traditional and modern circumcision on YOUNG boys. Yes, we shot an actual circumcisions :) The kids are the stars of the show. So don't miss it (again)!

I'm currently working on the last episode of MedikTV for the year, the part 2 of Merdeka special episode. After that, most probably I will not be doing MedikTV anymore, after 3 years. It's a relief but at the same time quite difficult for me because the show is like my little baby. I've seen it grow since the era of Maznah, Mastura then 'Me'. Worked with 4 different producers, 6 different journalists, 2 different production assistants, countless hospitals, doctors and patients, about 60 episodes on health issues, not forgetting 2 awards.

But hey, everyone has to move on right? Will MedikTV be back for a new season? I hope so. If it is coming back, will I be doing it still? Who knows? Questions, questions, questions...

Marching? Me?

I'm patriotic..I love my country. In fact, I put so much effort in initiating a special MedikTV episode for Merdeka, although I didn't have to. Watch out for it on 1st Sept 2007 at 5 pm.

You may also see me on Merdeka Day itself sometime in the morning because I'll be part of the National Day Parade! Never in my wildest dream I though I'll be part of this annual event. Media Prima is part of it, me and about 10 others from the Magazine, Documentary & Family Department was 'lucky chosen ones'.

At school I would always find a way to escape marching by merely holding the 'bunga manggar', holding the 'yellow house' signage...and since then it has been successful. But this time around, I can't find a way out of it. Unless I get pregnant in the next couple of weeks...muahahaha!

Irin, you've got a little bit of Rachel going on!

Take this test at Tickle
Which "Friend" Are You?

She's everybody's sweetheart, despite some (mostly) endearing quirks. And it looks like you too, have a little Rachel Green inside you. (If you're lucky, you might share her good looks too). Some may see you as a little spoiled, or at times naive. But overall you're a total doll. Like the real Rachel, you make your way in the world, figuring it out as you go.

Sometimes your story-book ideals of how things should turn out keep you from taking life as it comes, but that lovable vulnerability just makes people feel closer to you. You have true compassion, an idiosyncratic side your friends delight in—and, of course, great taste. Reminder, o charming one: People love it when you call them "hun."

In life you can make your own decisions or let other people make those decisions for you. Being Above The Influence is about staying true to yourself, and not letting people pressure you into being less than you.
