On Air? Insyaallah, Tune in to

This week, life is going to be choc-a-bloc. Excitingly so because the Malaysian community in London is expecting some very, very important and distinguished guests. I am already practicing my curtsey, (Does one curtsey?) Anyway, my special dress for the occassion is right this minute, being flown all the way from Malaysia, and all I have to do is find my pair of JC shoes fit for the occassion and learn how to walk properly without tripping over.

So, watch this space.

But in the meantime, if things go according to plan, today (22nd February 09) I will be somewhere in a studio in East London, this time, with me sitting on the other side of the table, so to speak, being interviewed by Miriam Watt of Sounds of Malaysia on . Then click on Click here to listen Live. This will be at 3 - 4pm London time and I think that is 11pm in Malaysia. So, if you are still awake, and have nothing better to do, listen to Kak Teh being interviewed on this new community radio in London. That will either keep you awake right through the night or send you off to sleep within five minutes.

At a certain point during the programme, nusound will have a live link up with Traxx FM in Malaysia.

So, what will I be talking about? Well, what else, my favourite subject - The Pak Cik Sailors AND...Blogging!!

And guess what, if you want to request songs and send messages to friends and families, you can do so by emailing .

This is so exciting. I just love radio.


Sorry, I have not been able to put the interview here yet. Perhaps will do so tomorrow.

Thanks to those who listened - I thoroughly enjoyed myself. and it sort of brought back memories of those broadcasting days.

Komen Pak Malim kucing ray yg alim.

Saya baru klik klik kat nusoundradio, dengar DJ bahasa Tamil la pulak, kata Pak Malim sambil memakai celak. Selamat menjalani temubual, kata Pak Malim sambil berbual-bual.

Kak Teh said...

pak malim, nanti pukul 3 pm waktu london dan pukul 11 malam waktu malaya barulah bahasa melayu, kata kak teh sambil pose ayu. Tapi mungkin temubual dalam dwi bahasa , kata kak teh sambil makan laksa. Pak malim dengarlah ya, dan komen apa yang kurang atau terlebih, pujuk kak teh sambil pegang tasbih.

NanaDJ said...

Kak Teh,
Can you tape it and post it on this Blog? Malam ni ada dinnerlah, may not be back in time for the program.I am sure all of us would love to hear you.
You will be there at Harrods for our Handicraft launch? I don't think you need to curtsy, unless you are in my State where we have to curtsy.

Kak Elle said...

oh wow whats the big occassion tu KT?

11pm this big baby selalu nya dah zzzzzz

mamasita said...

Oooh KT!
Have a great time ye? I takreti nak tune to the radio channel but will you tolong dedicate lagu 'Save The Best For Last' for all Malaysians kat UK..Send my love please! Kalau boleh k? Dont trouble yourself!Thanks!
Lagu Vanessa Williams!

Mama Huptihup said...

gud luck kak teh...nnt saya try dgr jugak :D

ZABS said...

Salam KT,
Akan komen kalau dapat tune in ke station tu nanti. InsyaAllah.

SkyJuice said...

Salam Kak Teh,

Oh wow! I shall remember to tune in later tonight. Good luck! :-)

Kak Teh said...

NanaDJ, I was told that it will be transfered or recorded and I will certainly post it here - hehe - if things go well. Insyaallah.
Yes, will be at Harrods and also dinner. Insyaallah.

Alllaaaaa Kak Elle, tidur awalnya!!!

Kak Teh said...

Mamasita, click saja kat link tu and then go to listen live or in Malaysia you listen to Traxx FM. Insyaallah will do - abt the song.

Lyana, okay - u dah baca kak teh merapu, sekarang you dengar kak teh merapu pulak! hehe!

Zabs, terima kasih. ANy feedback will be good.

Kak Teh said...

Skyjuice, Thanks...I need it. I dont mind doing the interview, tapi nak diinterviewkan ni...hmmmm.

Ms B said...

Kak teh,

I bumped into him yesterday morning at our usual place during breakfast (plus his entourage of course). Our tables were next to each other. :D I think so you were referring to the same person. He looks so calm!

SHould have taken some pics but he was enjoying his nasi lemak and the missus her roti canai.

Tak a pic of u in that dress and JC shoes.

Kak Teh said...

Ms B, I know who you meant, but it is not him. I was in Manchester yesterday when i was tokld that he came to malaysia hall for nasi lemak. i was with the director. So, what to do, cannot be in two places at the same time.
But these other VVIP's will be here on 24th. Like i said watch this space.

DrSam said...

Wish to see your picture in those special delivery costume.

Is it toningh? good luck Kak Teh on the interview. Will tune in to that channel to listen to that sweet voice of a very charming lady ;)

Kak Teh said...

Dr Sam, it is indeed tonite yr time - and now you are making me nervous. I left radio some years ago - so , if you just hear music playing - then you know, Kak Teh dah pengsan!

THAT dress? ooh, nothing spectacular , especially when I get into it. Somehow clothes changed their shapes when I got into them.

Naz in Norway said...

I will tune in...hopefully dapat lah dengar suara you yang lemak merdu tu! Good luck!

Kak Teh said...

Naz, ni nak pi dah will take satu setengah jam to get there. So, kalau tak cukup lemak, tambah santan, okay?

Lagi Komen Pak Malim kucing ray yg alim.

Saya selalu tido awal jugak, kata Pak Malim sambil menembak gagak. Tapi sebab nak dengar suara Kak Teh, saya tunggu, kata Pak Malim yg termanggu-manggu. Wah, seronoknya dapat dengar suara Kak Teh di corong radio, kata Pak Malim sambil masuk rodeo. Woo Hoo! Saya sedang mendengar suara Kak Teh sekarang, kata Pak Malim sambil memegang parang. Suara Kak Teh sangat lembut, kata Pak Malim sambil naik bot.
Helo? Helo? May I speak to Kak Teh, please? kata Pak Malim sambil memanggil polis. Eh, sori, wrong number, kata Pak Malim dengan selamba.

melayudilondon said...

Perghhh.. ni saya tengah dengar ni tapi mungkin miss your segment kot. Dah 11.25pm baru tune in. streaming lambat pulak tu.

tireless mom said...

Dear Kak Teh

Alaaahhhh. Tried clicking the website but can't get through. Nak sangat dengar you on air.

DrSam said...

I hear you... I hear you...(happy but for only a few wonderful seconds :(. The streaming here is so bad, at first I couldn't make a good distinction between you and the DJ. Until some Malay words uttered that actually revealed the sweet Kak Teh.

Managed to cacth though 'lagu asli' playing on the background and a song by M. Nasir(?).

Looking forward to listen a recorded version of this interview, if there is any.

SkyJuice said...

Kak Teh,

I did remember to tune in. It was entertaining, and you've such a youthful voice! :-)

Pak Tuo said...

Ada eloknya kalau done by Malaysian,run by Malaysian but remain solely malaysian.

Using as provider web would be an idea.

Programme could be digitalise mode and few stringer with techno backup would do wonder Kak Teh.

Your voice is kind of sexy.



Oldstock said...

Salam Kak Teh,

I've been trying to logon to the nusoundradio website for the past few hours but could not get through. Anyway, I hope the interview went well.

Wow... JC shoes to match a new dress. You'll look good :-)

Kak Teh said...

Playing with Mimi, thanks for the visit and yes, I had such fun during the interview earlier. Such a relaxed atmostphere and I spoke about my favourite subjects.

Pak Malim dengar kak teh? Tanya kak teh sambil tabur bertih. Kak Teh tak sangka Pak Malim sanggup tidur lambat, kata kak teh sambil minum serbat. Sudah lama kak teh tak buat radio, takut terlupa caranya pulak - kata kak teh sambil melalak.

Kak Teh said...

Shikin, 1125 tu masih ada - dia tak start 3 sharp sebab ada news dan juga iklan penaja. Tak palah nanti kak teh try masukkan recordingnya.

TM, tak apa, insyaallah minggu depan mungkin kak teh pulak yang present the programme.

Kak Teh said...

Dr Sam, ya, everyone is saying the streaming was slow. ENtahlah kak teh pun tak tau sangat all these technicalities. Thanks for staying up.

SkyJuice, so you stayed up as well!!! Thanks, (and thanks for the compliments too!)

Kak Teh said...

Pak Tuo, this is a community radio - dapat satu jam seminggu - tu pun dah cukup. Sebab community radio ni semua volunteers. Bukannya senang nak dapat lesen. Thanks for your suggestion. We can explore that too.

Oldstock, when you click from my blog pun taj dapat ke? I wonder why.
The JC pair of shoes can go with any dress because it is black. JC gave me that pair for my graduation.

Kama At-Tarawis said...

Kak Teh dah record ker? plse masukkan ke blog, kami nak dengar. semalam Pak Abu and ada function, balik lambat.

Pak Tuo said...

What is the approx.Malaysian popuation in the UK on a whole Kak Teh?
Not counting those kat continent tu?

What I meant was Radio Blogging via Internet Radio.Could do it from home.Tak perlu lesen daripada Commis of Commum.

You are sure one very active lady.


Unknown said...

WOW! Kak Teh - you sound so excited :-)and I am very happy for you...wish I could see you all decked up :-) so could you please post pics???

Take care, have fun and may you thoroughly enjoy the event and make waves!!!


KG said...

Wah wah Kak Teh, happeningnya life you...i must put a reminder to tune in, bolehlah dengarq suara you!

kay_leeda said...

Kak Teh,

Alahh..missed it lah. Was so tired last night, back from my nephew's wedding, terus knocked out.

Let us know when you'll be presenting yah. Will make it a date.

Phewwwwheett Kak Teh, baju baru and JC shoes lagi. Pls take pictures and post in the blog yes!!

Kak Teh said...

Puteri, I have the recording tapi tak kena format pulak, am waiting for the right one - am not too techie savvy.

Pak Tuo, thanks for the tip, I will explore that. We dont really have a number for the Malaysian community because before this Malaysians were not required to register with the Malaysian HC. Now, it is best that they do.

Kak Teh said...

Paula, yes. too many things happening this week. Am already tired before the week begins.hehe!

KG, hidup kak teh ni kekadang happening kekadang tidak. Wow, dah pandai guna perkataan happening ni..! Insyaallah I will announce in this blog nearer time next week about the programme on Sunday. and Insyaallah, i will get to the studio. Studionya jauh sesangat! di bahagian timur london sana.

Kak Teh said...

Kay, tak pa. Most of what I talked about, ada dalam blog ni pun. But there was live link up with Traxx FM which was quite exciting. God, I felt old. All these young DJ's!!! Dah lama kak teh tak buat ni.

As for the outfit, belum tengok baju tu lagi. Insyaallah dah sampai kut pagi ni. kasit tu nak kena gilap-gilap sikit.

MrsNordin said...

Shoot! I missed it. Hope you can post it here.

Kak Teh said...

MrsN, tak apa, will try to.

Kenny Mah said...

I love radio too... but radio talk shows these days pale in comparison to the past, methinks. Gone were the good ol days of Patrick Teoh and when Huzir Sulaiman was on THR. Sighs...

Kak Teh said...

Kenny dear, yes, zaman kegemilangan radio dah berlepas. I wish people would listen more to radio because with radio you can do so many things. With TV you tend to be anti social, kan? Oh those patrick teoh days!

Wira Budiman said...

Alamak I read this blog post a little too late! You must've been great on the show. Anyway, I hope you & bro are well. Take care. :)

Salt N Turmeric said...

Suspense tunggu siapakah gerangan guests yg membuat Kak Teh mencari her best JC's shoes. :)

Anonymous said...

Oh dear me! I completely missed this. Honestly, I have no excuse. I was busy playing "Oscar charade" with the other three hyperactive occupants in this household!!

So am looking forward to the posting on the blog.. and Kak Teh, don't forget to post the pics of you in your all the way from M'sia baju and JC shoes, ok? You sound so excited. They should really make this a more permanent feature... yunno, something along the lines of "Saturday evenings with Kak Teh". *grins*

Naz in Norway said...

hop over to my blog to get your award :)

mekyam said...


wah, bunyi exciting tu. dress sampai specially flown in and have to look for the right jc's and latih2 curtsey segala... mesti preparing for red carpet.

you dowan to namaste mcm bebudak slumdog millionaire ke? seems to be the new fad ngan matlehs on this side of the pond, kt.

on the next note, can't wait for you to put up your interview kat sini. i tried to tune in on feb 22 at local time same2 as the gmt you provided tapi tak sukses.

p.s. btw, just fyi ajer... i'm recovering from durian hangover. it was only a paksa and a half [the equi of 3 - 4 ulas yg lonjong] of the thai seedless. delish, tapi too much for me. i felt the heat from the torso on up and my head went into instant gemeng which persisted until this morning. i kena habiskan sorang2 sebab the hub, thought not put-off by it, has yet to acquire the taste. and i was getting paranoid that the smell was permeating my fridge even thought i bungkus the box it came in in foil, then in air-sealed ziplock then dua tiga round of beg plastik. nak buang sayang. guess i can do w'out durian for another decade now. :D

Kak Teh said...

wira, why laaa baca terlambat. Where have you been? There;s been quite a lot happening in London and I thought you;d be around.

Farina, hmmmm, yes, in the end I didnt wear JC shoes because I thought we'd be standing a lot and also I might trip in front of the royal visitors. Malu saja.

Kak Teh said...

Andrea, I showed Dt JC what I was wearing and of course he looked disgusted that I should be wearing something else. But, to tell you the truth, no one wld notice. All hidden under my baju kurung.

Naz, thanks, hehe, do I give an acceptance speech? I cant do it yet as nak bernapaih pun tak boleh minggu ni. Next week lega sikit.

Kak Teh said...

Mekyam, what a do and what a day we had. But will tell in good time. But too much excitement in a week - cant cope with this anymore. all the running around.

Durian hangover?? I once ate so much durian that I instantly lost my voice. That's how greedy I was.
