When I was a teenager (around 14 to 15 years old), I've always dream of appearing on a cover of a magazine or something! HA HA ;p And little did I know, 10 years later, I appeared on a national newspaper! heheh. Well, nothing big...nothing really special about it, but I really can't believe that just by blogging, I can make it into a local newspaper! O__o
Last Saturday (12.01.2013), I appeared on our national newspaper, Utusan Malaysia, on the front cover of their .COM section, for the "Blogger Pilihan" column. They called me about a week before the publish date, to interview me. At first I thought like..umm...what do they want to interview about la? I'm not thatttt interesting, and I'm not a big blogger like other celebrity bloggers pun kann.. So what is it that they wanna know la, I thought to myself. But well, they said they find my blog interesting, and they wanna know more about me...like, who is this Shazwani Hamid la, etc. haha..
So I said yes to it although I was given like....just a few days to prepare myself for it! Please note that I am usually very shy and always nervous when talking with strangers (that is more than two, usually), but because I thought I wanted to get out of my comfort zone and just do it and experience it...so I accepted it, and did it anyway! ;)
Actually, the day before the photo shoot and the interview with Utusan, I had another interview on Saturday that week. That one was from TV9. So basically, that whole week I was fidgeting all the way since I got that phone call from TV 9 and Utusan since Tuesday till Friday! haha. Shooting back-to-back on a weekend! - I was so worried about everything... my pimple, my fat, my outfits, my make up, my talking skills, like would I be able to explain clearly, anddd everythinggggg! haha. Suddenly everything seemed to be a big problem to me! haha. But when the day comes, it wasn't that bad pun, actually! - OK, maybe a little bit nervous for the TV9 interview, but well, this two experience, has actually made me learned something.... - That I really should stop my negative thinking patterns in my head, which constantly worried about anything and everythinggg, being the shy girl that I am kannn.... And to actually start educating my mind to think more positively, and that it will all be okay! hehe.. ;p
Anyways...enough on explaining a little bit info about me and my shyness..haha. Here's the article that came out on Utusan last Saturday! ;)
Thank you Utusan for choosing me to appear on your paper. You guys rock! You made my day when the moment I went to a petrol station that morning to fill up my fuel, and saw my face on the newsstand that day! hehe. So thank you for making my day! ;)
