Featured in Utusan Malaysia - Mega


Alhamdulillah, syukur :). I was featured in Utusan Malaysia - Mega today! I was interviewed by the Utusan Malaysia journalist Puan Rina a few weeks ago via email regarding an article she wanted to write about Raya cards and how it has become a phenomenon these days to not send any Raya cards the traditional way to our family and friends. I was asked to give my point of view on it. Again, this was a challenge for me as my Malay is not that good hehehe......but as always I did my best to convey my thoughts on this issue. I'm so glad to see that there were not many editing done to what I wrote.....so I guess my Malay is not that bad after all...hahahaha :D

Since the interview was done via email, so even the photos were taken by yours truly for the article. I had to ask my Mom to help me take photos of myself with the cards by my PC hehehe! Gosh! That was a really funny moment since she is not good with the camera. She had to take photos of me so many times before she finally got that shot! LOL! It was a good experience though. I seriously need to get me a tripod for the camera so that I can take photos without having to trouble anybody in future projects :). 

A special heartfelt thank you to Puan Rina for this interview. I'm actually quite surprised that she still remembers me from my first interview with her last year. Didn't know that she still follows my blog till now. I really appreciate that a lot :).

I would like to make some corrections here from the article. My name is Noor not Nor. And I've only been involved in this online business for almost 4 years now....not 5 years hehehe. Just minor mistakes hehehe....which is kinda normal.....it happens sometimes. :)

You can read the short version of article at the Utusan Malaysia online link HERE.
