I was contacted by the writers of the magazine a long long time ago in March and finally my story has been published. Come on peeps! Check out the latest issue of FEMALE and you can see THREE (3) whole pages of me in the Feature section. Weeehoooo!
I was only aware that the magazine was released when my girlfriend Shima (thanks dearie!) uploaded snapshots of the pages to my FB on Sunday morning. I looked at the online photos and went “Damn I look pretty!” hahaha!
We only managed to buy a copy (two actually hik! hik!) by evening but I could only bring myself to browse through the pics of myself and not read the story because…. AKAK MALU UOLS! *pengsan* So when Azman has read it I eagerly asked about the article and he said he just felt like reading one of my blogs.
Hahaha! Of course darling… I had a written interview! I made it easy for the journalist Kimberley Lau. (thanks Kim, and gosh you have such interesting career! ) Anyway the story was not too long, just nice but HAVE YOU SEEN MY PICTURES???
On 286, I filled an entire page! *pengsan lagi* If you see page 354, The Biggest Loser Asia’s Dave Nuku got one page only you know… I got THREE (3) hmmmppphh kembang hidung berlagak…
One whole page on my skinny jeans, sucker!
Everything around me was my own collection of Manchester United merchandise, some are for sale but mostly are just mine including the duvet set, muffler scarf, caps, luggage tag, flag, lanyards etc. Not visible in the photos are my collections on M.U stuff in white and pink and my David Beckham print panties.
On 287, there goes another me sitting down holding that Nike Manchester United ball. Kim made a pullout quote from my statement about Azman. I like that! That’s really sweet… Did I mention I got THREE (3) pages?
On page 288, there’s even a bigger photo of me holding the hat autographed by Bryan Robson.But it was a little sad that I couldn’t produce the picture of Azman, Bryan Robson, myself and our friend Azwar in high resolution. Kim ended up using it as a super tiny thumbnail at bottom right. Huhu! Azman jokingly said ada muka dia kecik giler pun jadilah! hahaha!
Did I mention I got THREE (3) pages?
So finally on Monday night, I pulled myself together, find the courage within me and read the story. Miki came up close to me so I showed him my pictures in the THREE (3) pages and said “Look Miki, Mummy is in a book!” He doesn’t know the word magazine yet! Hehe… And Miki just looked without saying anything. Like so what? What’s the biggy deal?
When I showed his Daddy’s little photo, Miki said “Mummy! Daddy! Mummy! Daddy!” repeatedly. Then when I pointed at his little Manchester United sweater that was hanging beside me on page 286 however, Miki automatically jumped with joy! “Jacket Miki! Jacket Miki ni! M.U Mikiiiii!”
He jumped around, he guling-guling on the floor, he did his jiggy dance and cheered with joy.
Azman and I laughed our head off. But I don’t really understand this boy, was he jumping about because even though his own picture was not featured he was still super happy that his jacket was or did all the cheering mean he loves his M.U jacket more than his Mummy? *sentapz*
There is another thing that makes me wanna pengsan bangun pengsan bangun about the article. It is actually about the ad positioning in FEMALE magazine. I must say that the editor is genius. To manipulate her reader’s attention into absorbing all the messages that the advertisement is sending out; she put a huge photo of me on one page and put a breast enhancement advertisement on the next. Yes you read it right, gambar aku sebesar-besar alam itu di sebelah IKLAN T*T*K OKAYY!!!!! *pengsan*
Sama besar ok, gamba aku dengan gamba model iklan nenen tu… so kira ni secara tak langsung boleh jadi gambar before and after la kan… Huuwaaaaaa!!
