I am on TV, Again!

I appeared on Tv on 1st Sept @8.10am as one of the 2 "extraodrinary" teachers to be interviewed. On that very afternoon, I received a call from the producer of the Good Morning Singapore and was invited to go on Tv again on the 7th Sept to demonstrate bento making.

WAH!

I was asked to demonstrate how to make 4 of the bentos in my book. Everything was ok, even when making the bento "live". The only thing which made me so nervous that I lost my sleep was packing the stuff to bring to Mediacorp. It was not going to be like in my own kitchen that has all the things I needed. I have to plan carefully and made sure I brought all the things I have to bring. From the moulds to the nori punchers to the butter knife to the chopping board to the ham to the cheese to the vegetables ....

Luckily everything went on quite smoothly. I still do not know which camera to look so I just looked straight ahead all the time.

The hosts -- on my left, QiQi and on my right, Lin You Yi. I told them they had to eat my bentos. No way I would be bringing them home.




I woke up at 4.40am to start the prepartion. Although I was in a hurry and everything was in a mess, I managed to take 2 pictures to remember what was it like "behind the scene".




In the afternoon I went to Paragon to exchange for a tshirt size. Then I walked over to Kinokuniya and guess what I saw? MY BOOKS!! They were put on the "new arrivals" in the Chinese book section. Oooooooo...... this was exactly what I had dreamed of!!!


I fished out my camera and took a picture discreetly. Then, I stood for a while to see if anybody picked up the book. Unfortunately, in my 5 mins there, only 2 person went to the new arrived section and 0 out of 2 touched the book. Sigh.

Nevermind. There were many other books that shared the same fate too. Hahahaha!!!

More importantly, I hope MayDay read my book. :D

I love that top of yours! That was the first thing I noticed on TV. You were very steady leh, I was half worried for you that you might not be able to punch the sandwich shapes out nicely, or if you would drop anything onto the floor! When I saw that limp seaweed of yours, I knew you wouldn't be able to punch the faces out but wah, you took it all in your stride! How you managed to demonstrate all 4 items in 20 minutes was amazing!

Juz to let u know, I went to Kinokuniya Bugis yday after work and I saw yr books on the front stack of the new books and a teen was reading your book. Not know if she brought yr book cos she was reading for quite sometime and I'hv to rush home after paying for my book.

Beautiful Love said...

I recorded it and played it immediately when I reached home!

Cool! My boys love ur burger and asked if I can make for them :p

wolfgirl said...

THey will...

and.... i think maybe they will be asking their 助理 to cut their breads taht way.. or prepare that type of bentos for their journeys to their next concert.

Meekfreek said...

I'm so glad I caught your segment and you look great! Maybe you could be a celebrity chef!

I have the same top as you...from The Box...you look much better in it than me of course and it really BOOMS!

I had no idea you had to do all the preparation your self though. I would have thought you could just give them a list and they would have it all ready for you!

Angie said...

i had to buy all the ingredients and do all the preparation... and i do not get any $$ for that...=_=

MF, "BOOMS" is the latest vocab in elglish language now!!!

明星老师... quite true wor! Hey seems like you are getting the hang of it, if there ever be a 3rd LIVE show, it'd be a piece of cake and you'd definitely shine!

Yes, I took leave (spec. to see you on TV) that day in the name of bringing my girls out since it's school holiday.. I set alarm at 8am knowing it's at 8.10, but Philip woke me up at 7.45 with the TV oredi switched to Chn.8, he's more eager than me, haha :P

We all enjoyed the whole show, I like Lin You Yi's sweet smile, she seems to know a little abt. bento and led you on by asking all the right Qs.

Your book stood out among the new arrivals, really! Philip just finished reading ur book.. i'm gonnan pass it to my sis this wkend. Maybe 五月天阿信 might blog abt ur book... quick, go check! :D
