Woot I’ve just done the first recording of the Bola@Mamak! The brand new show I’m hosting, will be on every Wednesday at 9pm on Channel 817.
Phew… can i please point out this is my first time hosting not just any show but a sports show. Can you imagine the pressure >.< But hey as my director from Mocap pointed out. Its my two loves – being on screen and talking about football. Hehe. On a side note I am ecstatic to say I’m learning so much. It’s truly making me like the game even more. Plus I just love the fact of the different people i’m meeting all the time each week.
I will say its not easy to shoot at a mamak.. not your typical shooting spot..right?? o.0 But you know what we’re playing different with this show and I’m still ecstatic to be part of the team… weeeehooooo. I know I know i’m on a high right now. But it’s all in good fun ^_~
We shot the show at a quaint lil 24 hour mamak down in Putrajaya. I have to say thank you to the waiters there who were to patient with us.
First shoot or rehearsal for any show is bound to have a certain amount of chaos to it. No chaos means everything gets spoon fed and possible to take it for granted. Chaos means you get to learn how to make thing better, more systematic, more fun. Besides where is the challenge without chaos! All the same it was a good first shoot.
The mamak stall that we were shooting at.
The first day of rehearsal. Set up time for shoot.
It looks like i’m ready for an exam!

Behind the scenes literally. This is what it looks like in the van for production :). Cool right!!? I had no idea what the stuff meant, although i asked an tried to understand. Beyond my comprehension.

He’s out on the search to find the CRAZIEST FOOTBALL fan out there. And when i say crazy you have to be a real fanatic. So if you think you are crazy enough. I’ll let you know how to contact the OrangeMan to visit you. Who knows if your story is compelling enough to make it into the whacko list, we’ll come visit you and have you on National TV!
All this right here on Bola@Mamak will be repeated again every Wednesday at 9pm on Astro Channel 817.
