Malaysian Food Blog, Travel, Diving & More

Remember the news article on Oriental Daily on the 21/5/2014 on Foodie Blogger programme? Well, it’s going to be aired this coming Thursday 10 pm on the 12/6/2014 on NTV7.

For those who aren’t familiar with the program, this is a food TV show hosted by Ernest Chong. In every episode, he’ll explore a city in Malaysia to find some of the best street foods with a help of a “local” blogger. On this episode that is about Klang Valley, yours truly was lucky enough to be chosen as the guest blogger. So yeap, it’s my time to shine. 😀

In the program, I introduced three different street foods that I thought represent some of the best Street foods KL has to offer. They are:

Shooting took place some months back and it was a lot of fun. We got to sample too much food in a day but at the end it was all well worth it. I’ll also be watching this for the first time this Thursday, but here’s a promo video to hopefully pique your interest.

Also, do check out those three stalls, they are some of my favorites and I hope you like them too.

The article on Oriental Daily for  NTV7 Foodie Blogger (愛食客) TV program is finally out last Wednesday (21/5/2014). 

The article is of course, all about Ernest Chong (张顺源), the host of the TV program, while I play second fiddle as the invited guest of the day. This was my first time on a Chinese newspaper, which means I’ve now appeared in newspaper articles of all three major languages, woohoo!

For the article, we went to the Taman Connaught Pasar Malam for 3 challenges whereby we, with the help of the hawker stall operator, come up with our own preparation of the food, then serve it to the public to get votes. The first challenge was the stinky tofu, follow by salted pau and potted ice cream.

Whenever someone votes for either of us, we get a little NTV7 sticker. At the end I collected 14 to Ernest’s 12 or 13 stickers, but he won the 1st and 3rd challenges while I only came up top for the sauce I made for salted pau. I had the majority votes, I guess, but like general elections in Malaysia, it’s the number of seats won that matters.

No prize anyway, hahaha, it was all fun!

Foodie Blogger airs on Thursday 10pm, I’m the guest on the segment that features KL hawker foods that should be aired in a few weeks.

Little did I expect that after having my cherry popped on the appearance on Bernama radio, I was invited to be one of the guests at NTV 7’s Breakfast Show earlier this month.

The video is available at [direct link to the episod 135], we appear starting at about 19th minute.

There were four of us in this session that lasted not more than 15 minutes. I was joined with boo from masak-masak, Pamela from MalaysianFoodie, and Ivy from FOOD. Our hosts were Naz and Satira Diana.

Interestingly, Naz was the emcee of my company’s annual dinner a year ago. I wish I remembered during the interview.

We arrived at NTV’s Shah Alam studio pretty early in the morning and had 45 minutes or so to kill before our segment was due, 5 minute of those time was spent putting on foundation and microphone. Naz too came and gave us some tips on what to be expected as everything was recorded and aired live, very friendly chap.

yep, they put on a bit of make up for me. =/

On the show we talked about food blogging in Malaysia, a bit about our blogs, and other stuff about food. Take a look at the video on tonton if you’re interested, registration is required but it’s free though.

The only downside is that they don’t serve breakfast at the show tho.. hee-hee.

Thank you Shikin for the invitation, and the two photos above were from Vincent Chong.
