This is supposed to be a post about my amazing day in Kuala Lumpur last Wednesday, 19 Nov. I’ve been writing about it since Thursday but was/am sidetracked by WORK (the “paying” kind that I can’t neglect). But I’m setting the work aside right now because I just have to write this one, no matter how short.
It’s about Elviza Michele Kamal of the Write Away blog – specifically about her appearance on TV1’s Blog programme just now from 8.40-9.00PM. Yes, “others” have appeared here before. But this one by Elviza was SPECIAL – because she’s a special person in my heart.
How special? Well, see it this way – that was the first time in 3 months that I had watched TV. No, I didn’t even bother with the Olympics ever since getting an Internet connection in mid-July. I don’t have a TV set in this house, so I went to my sister-in-law’s house in front – it would be a sin to have missed seeing Elviza live.
CAPTION: This isn’t Elviza, but Nuraina Samad of the blog 3540 Jalan Sudin. She was the first woman to be featured on this programme – 11 May 2008. Click on the pix or here to see the post in Rocky’s Bru about it.
There was one thing I had worried about since knowing she would be on TV – that I might actually forget about it when the time comes! That’s a real problem with me right now, forgetting things. No, I don’t think it’s because of age – or “effects on memory due to previous drug use”:-) … it’s mainly because I’m FULLY occupied right now with doing so many things. And that’s not necessarily a bad thing. But more about this another time (have to complete this post, and then continue with “some real work”).
But I didn’t forget. For one thing, ArahMan7 SMS me at 8PM to confirm that Elviza will indeed be on TV (his Streamyx is giving him problems again). And so did Sherry Nor-Jane (she was eagerly waiting for it too) and her husband Nazmi in Kuantan.
8.40PM…and there was Elviza! And she looked so pretty too! Well, it wasn’t “the first time I had seen her” – in fact I had seen her in the flesh in Bangsar last Wednesday, 19 Nov. And I had met Borneo Blues Mat Salo. Plus Rocky Bru. Plus Nuraina Samad. Yes, ALL on that same memorable day! I’ll mention about this in my next post (the one that is sidetracked by work).
As for Elviza on TV1, there was something that I’ll remember. She had mentioned about “meeting former drug addicts through the blogs; and they write so well!…” For fear of being “perasan”, I hope she had meant me and ArahMan7 too…
Well, back to work.
