My latest story for Majalah 3 will be aired at 9 pm today about the pandas that came to Malaysia. I started shooting this story back in November last year when I was 8 weeks pregnant.
I was with the Zoo Negara team in China as they started their familiarisation process with the pandas, Fu Wa and Feng Yi.
Feng Yi was still nursing her baby that time.
Shooting continued back in Malaysia. I went for a shoot even when I was heavily pregnant.
I was probably around 8 months pregnant that time.
There were only 2 occasions when I couldn't go for the shoot as it was too close to my due date and I was in confinement. Hence, my colleague helped cover for me.
When it was very close to my due date, I began editing the story at the comfort of my home.
And then I gave birth to Razeen...
While in confinement, I made arrangements to continue shooting with the pandas after my maternity leave.
So I met the two pandas on my very first day back at work.
Had the chance to meet the two pandas 'back stage' again.
I had 3 more days of shoot with the pandas before the whole story was finally done.

We started planning this special feature before I got pregnant. Started shooting when I was 2 months pregnant. The story is finally going on air when Razeen is 3 months old. What a journey it has been!
So do catch it tonight! I promise you're gonna love the cute pandas. I know I do :)
