What a crazy week and a bit.

Sorry it's just been very busy for me so I haven't been writing on the blog but I'm here, and let me tell you what a crazy week and a bit I've had.  It started on 26th of March.  I was on hitz.fm as usual then I get a call. An emergency!! The MC that was suppose to do the launch of E! News Asia could not make it and they ask me to do it.

10 am after my shift, ask the boss and he said it was ok, I had to rush back home, grab my suit and head for the launch. I literally put on the suit, got a short briefing and did the press conference.  They announced the brand new host of E! News Asia.

Congratulations Marion and Dom.

It was crazy because after the press conference, we had to wait for the launch party that starts at 4pm. 


Now people who are very important behind the scenes are the make up artist and the people to do the hair, because it's not easy to do it yourself and get it right.
Funny enough during the break between the press conference and launch party I get a call from Sheila Majid's team asking me to MC the launch of Sheila Majid's 25 Year Celebration at Pavilion on Wednesday, and I instantly said yes.  I'm a huge fan!!! 


Then comes 4pm, the launch party.  I had to be the Ryan Seacrest for Marion & Dom because the host were still a mystery to all guest arriving.  I was on the red carpet interviewing all guest coming in, and I had to ask the all important question "So who are you wearing... "
Then come 5 something the Brand New Host were introduced again.  Yes I look tired cause I was awake from 4.45am but I had fun.... but that was a start to a crazy week and a bit...




Then comes Saturday and earth hour.  A simple little thing like turning out for an hour can help the earth.  I turn off my lights and look out and see not everyone in my neighbour hood is doing it.  That just sucks...

Then comes Monday, a brand new week.  I find out my friend is in the hospital, cause he isn't feeling well.

Then comes Tuesday.  I find out that my friend has been moved into ICU.  Told everyone to pray for him cause he was getting worse.



Wednesday was crazy. There are a few celebs in this world that can leave me speechless when I meet them because I'm a huge fan.  Bono from U2, Will Smith, Zainal and Sheila Majid, so I was just so excited and surprised that I was the MC with Ean.  It was such an honour.  I got there early for my briefing and all so I decided to take a few pictures with my Canon 550D (it's amazing cause it takes HD videos too)
















 
 
 

Then... comes Thursday ...
I find out my friend in the hospital is getting worse, but still have to go on with work.  After the morning show headed off to practice. Dance practice for the Sepang 2010

Please stop laughing.  Moots and I had to learn that dance in 1 hour...
 
Come friday I wake up to sad news.  I get an SMS that my friend who was fighting for his life passed away at 12.30am.  I couldn't go to his funeral cause I was on air.  It's crazy that I never actually took a photo with him.  I see him almost everyday at work but never thought... 

One thing I learnt from Abang Din Beramboi is, life is to short to make enemies.  Make as many friends as you can and live life to the fullest.  We will miss you my friend...
 
Then comes Sunday and Sepang for the Formula 1. Remember the dance we had to learn on Thursday, well that's all the practice Moots and I got and it's Showtime before the race in front of everyone, but before that we had to host the Meet and Greet with the formula 1 drives..



What we did, we introduced the drivers as they came up in groups.. There were loads of people there with huge cameras...









We got be close to 4 world Champions..


















Cool huh...

But Moots who was with me was on a Mission!!!



Then it was time to Dance...
