Last Sunday....

It has taken me quite some time to get this done. The interview with Tok Din (who used to run Malaysia Hall canteen in the late 90's was done live last Sunday. The drive to the studio had taken longer than we imagined. But we got there on the dot BUT the studio manager had some accident in the bathroom and couldnt get to open the door for us until five minutes past air time!!! The song by Siti Nurhaliza saved us and I sat down to proceed with the programe and then realised the microphone was half a mile away from Tok Din!!! The first of a few technical glitches on live radio!!

There's also an interview with husband and wife team - Azhar and Ani who is now running Makan Cafe in Protobello.

But....do listen to the classic old Malay songs from Tok Din's collections, which includes Sejakku Bertemu Padamu, Pegang-pegang Tali, Janganlah Tenung-tenung, Jikalau Abang Merindu and Hamidah. Simply love these songs!

Ish... kalau I macam tu (sampai lambat for whatever reason), and terus kena bercakap to an audience, mau lagi banyak glitches kot!

Kak Teh said...

Pi Bani, dah lah tercungap-cungap naik tangga, then terus ke mike!!! jadi mula2 tu gugup jugak...imagine I did 10years of live radio..and I am still nervous!

Ms B said...

Komen Pak Malim, kucing ray yg alim.

"Hamidah...Hamidah....", Pak Malim menyanyi dan menari sambil memakai purdah. We love U, Kak Teh! kata kawannya si Goblok sambil meminum secawan teh.

Naz said...

Kak Teh,
Pejam mata, dengar your show....amboi rasa dekatnya! :)
I thought of listening to it tonight after the kids have gone to sleep but dah tergedik gedik nak dengar, apa nak buat. I sent them out instead! haha!

Dear Kak Teh,

I've missed it too! Great that K.Teh dah upload kat sini. I'm writing this note while waiting for the download to complete its 42mins run.

Nak jadi cerita, last Monday 20th I got a surprise call from K.Ani's brother (Fauzi) and keluar lah cerita2 lama masa dia mula2 jumpa K.Teh & AG with yr little children (then) masa dia keje kat Nahar.

I've not met Fauzi since 1996 but he got my number from another friend who Googled me!

My salam to K.Ani, A.Ard & Tok Din & wife. Owwhhhhh how I miss good old days... & I definitely miss Spring in London!

Fauziah Ismail said...

Salam Kak Teh
I remember Tok Din making the best kway teow goreng while at Malaysia Hall and I will always asked mine without the taugeh ... hehehehehe!

Kak Teh said...

Ms B - yes, will try to get there early so we can have a chat. A date, ok?

Pak Malim menari pakai purdah? tanya kak teh yang masih menyanyi lagu Hamidah. Seronoknya kak teh dengar Pak Malim sayang kak teh, sengeh kak teh sambih makan berteh.

Kak Teh said...

Naz, kalau dah khatam tiga kali tu baguih laaaa! Kak Teh sampai laa ni dok menyanyi lagu, janganlah tenung2 bung, janganlah pandang -pandaaaang!

Syoknya lagu lama-lama - a lot of teasing and flirting going in those songs.

Kak Teh said...

Honeytar, pasal kena upload pulak> you can just press the button and you can hear it, kan?
anyway good that Fauzi got in touch with you. Will convey yr salam to ani and art. we meet quite often.
Ya, Fauzi should be able to tell you how we ferried the children here and there to eat. and most often than not it was at Nahar Cafe!

Kak Teh said...

Fauziah, you mean you pun tak makan taugeh? That makes two of us and I do get dirty looks because I'd leave all the vegies on the side as well. Good news, Tok Din is going to open up his own restaurant soon!

Kama said...

Awatla tercungap2 tu Kak Teh.. hehehe.. first timer dengaq sora Kak Teh since 1979.. Whoa! masih sexy weh!

MrsNordin said...

Sejak ku Bertemu Padamu is my favourite karaoke song! Hee.. hee...

The song of yesteryears are all simple and sweet, kan? Easy on the melody and lyrics. But nowadays, macam "berat" je lah most of the songs... esp. lagi cinta.

Maya said...

OOOooooo...more music talk. Thanks Z. Hope to be seeing you soon! Been way to busy.....ya, so what else is new, eh? Love to you and yours. Always.

Kak Teh said...

Puteri, awat tak tercungap - raced through east London to get to the studio, lepaih tu pintu depa tak buka and we were five mins into air time...plonked myself in the seat and off I went. Naik tangga dua tiga tingkat...haiyaaaa! Forten years I got away with sounding tercungat cos on short wave radio there were so many interference that no one wld notice...hahaha!

Kak Teh said...

Mrs N, yes, such a lovely song and a very karaoke one. BUT i have never found it on the list...kena cari lagi laa .

Maya, are you heading this way? The weather is getting better and the days are longer too.

SkyJuice said...

Lunaknya sogha Kak Teh. Lain kali kalau saya susah nak tidoq, boleh dengaq this recording la. ;-)

Kak Teh said...

SkyJuice, hahaha, do i take this as a compliment or what?? To cure your insomnia, will send you a recording. hehe, thanks for listening. Wasnt on top form - but what the heck - life radio is quite challenging.

mekyam said...

where got gugup? tak dengar pun. i only hear a melofluidious smoothness.

you're such a pro, kt! :D

Kak Teh said...

mekyam, thanks for kind words, as always. The gugupness must be there - or else macam complacent pulak , bukan? anyway, one more sunday and i take a rest and get my enthusiasm up and running again.

Kak Teh,

Tetap best yr program, maintain sora lunak merdu gitu :)

Kak Teh said...
