Hello hello! I'm back! So Serina didn't ban me after the previous post. Hehehehe. ;p
Did you hear us on radio this morning?
As announced on Studio 23's Facebook page, Studio 23 was being interviewed by Red FM at 9am this morning. So have you figured out what 'Fizfit' is called in Mandarin? ;)
Us in our early morning face. Very early OK.
We arrived at RTM earlier than planned. On the way, we had fun trying to practice saying terms like Flamenco, gypsy, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, passionate etc. in Mandarin. Our Mandarin is quite rusty, and Serina claims hers to be 'kindergarten-level', which explains why she translated 'frustration' as 'xiao qi gui' (小气鬼) -- it means 'petty'. Hahahah! After that she decided to keep quiet in case she corrupted what little Chinese vocab we had left.
At 5 minutes to 9am, two very giggly dancers and one very serious studio manager were called into the recording room, which was behind 2 heavy doors! I remembered the time because we all chose to go to the washroom at the very last minute. Hahaha!
Looks can be deceiving. Serina looks more like she's in a heated debate rather than an interview. Heheheh! Obviously a fake shot. ;p She was a mute interviewee the whole time. ;p
The real voices behind the microphones?
Still the sleepy faces
Aunty Eileen said she didn't dare to look at us during the interview for fear that she would burst into laughter, because Serina and I were so giggly and full of physical action that we had to keep supressing our laughters behind our hands. Full of action because there were times when we didn't know how to answer, so Serina had to wave animatedly trying to explain to us what to answer.
Eventually we settled on note-passing, like in primary school. Hehehe... I wonder if the deejay was irritated at us for being so animated. Hahaha!
Look at our notes!
At one point, Serina suddenly nudged me and indicated for me to look at the window. There were some high school students (must be some lawatan sambil belajar thingy after PMR) standing there waving at us and trying to take pictures of us. Hahah!
They must think we're some kind of super star or something to be interviewed like that. Guess what? We both smiled and posed! Hahaha, I cannot believe we did that!
With the deejay
Here's a picture with the friendly deejay. She's a wonderful bilingual deejay who thankfully was fluent in both English and Mandarin and could put us all at ease. All in all, I had a very interesting and wonderful experience. It was so much fun I'm wishing I could trade my teaching degree for one in mass communication. ;p Maybe just for one day. ;p
