I'm Joining the National Broadband Awareness & Promotional Programme--BB Trail

Yesterday i had an event at our Ministry of Information Communications and Culture (MCMC) at Cyberjaya where the MCMC flagged off the Broadband Trail (BB Trail) that will have the BB squads travel in 4WD vehicle across the nation to raise awareness on broadband and increase users. And guess what? I've been picked to appear during the BB trail to promote the use of Broadband in Malaysia!!

As a 8TV Nite Live host--where a show that talks about technology and gadgets, I'm excited to start the campaign to raise broadband awareness for the government. The BB Trail launch yesterday have already raised my adrenaline level and I will do as much as i can to make this campaign a success.

Me getting down from the BB Squad 4WD vehicle to receive goodies from YB Dato' Seri Utama Dr. Rais Yatim, the Minister of Information Communications and Culture at the Flag Off of the BB Trail 4WD vehicle.

The five-and-a-half months road show that will begin in July 15 will have the BB trail driving four specifically designed and fitted four-wheel drive vehicles covering more than 500 locations across the length and breadth of the Peninsula including Sabah and Sarawak.

The BB Trail will have the local entertainers and corporate personalities interacting with the Rakyat and also participating in many interactive activities and games. I'm not certain of which BB trail I'll be appearing yet, but I'll post an update when it is confirmed.

Other celebs at the BB Trail launch--Yasmin, Atilia, Sazzy, and Hannah Tan.

Brian Joo on 8tv Nite Live

  Last night I had the greatest opportunity in the world; to interview Korean Pop Artist Brian Joo on 8tv Nite Live.

I'd have to say Mike and I found that he was one of the most Down to Earth person we have ever met. The moment he got to the studio the three of us started talking as if we were old friends that haven't each other for ages.

I was very surprised to find that we were very similar and have many of the same experiences growing up in the USA and moving back to our respective ethnic home country both at the age of 17.

If you had not know Brian Joo was born in Los Angeles ,California and grew up in New Jersey. He later at the age of 17 or 18 had gone one to make his mark in the Korean music scene as one half of Fly to the Sky. Similar to my experience of being born in New York and raised in Hawaii, returning to Malaysia and being the frontman of the Six String Samurais although I have to admit that Brian has had greater success in the music department.

The moment he came on the show it was electrifying. we practically cancelled all of our usual format and stories for that one show so that we could focus on Brian for the show. Which never happens until the Brian invaded 8tv Nite Live. In fact in my opinion it was all worth because last nites show was the best show we have ever done. Thanks Brian for making the night a memorable awesome one and wish you all the best in your music career.
