Timmy on TV (Part 2)

This morning I was at Angkasapuri for a TV interview on the RTM 2 program Hello on Two hosted by Zamil and Annie.

I was pretty nervous being on National TV for the first time but after 5 minutes I kinda got used to it and well... I didn't say "nipples"... YAY!!!

Unfortunately I didn't take any pictures in the studio... didn't know if I was allowed to and I don't have a video of the session yet but it looked something like this.
I'll probably try to get one next week and post it up here okay?

Anyway, both my parents were watching the show and after the show I spoke to each one of them.

My Dad... had nice things to say... he said he was proud.

Now my Dad has always been the kind of man who believed that his sons should ALWAYS do better than him

He always used to preach: "Whenever you come up with a new version.. it must be better than the old right?"

Unfortunately the "old version" set too high a standard that I'm not even 5% of the way there to being even on par with him.

So you can imagine how nice it was to hear from my father that he was proud... (well not as proud as when I made it to the Top 25 Young Entrepreneurs in Asia on Businessweek but still proud).
Then it came to my mum's turn to talk to me on the phone.

She said
"Son... everything went okay.. but I just have one thing I really just have to point out".

Thoughts were racing through my mind... uh oh uh oh... did I say NIPPLES without realizing it?

Or did I do something even more embarrassing like scratch my crotch or dig my nose while on National TV without realizing it?

My mum went on to say
"Son... you better do some exercise.. you really are getting really FAT!!!"

I blurted out in my defence
"WHAT?!?! MUM!!! I'M NOT FAT.. I'M JUST BIG BONED!!!"

Fat would be like Hasan!!!

Right? (Hahahah Hasan)

My mum refused to give it to me.

She said
"No Son.. you're getting VERY FAT... you're not there yet but soon you will be if you don't do something about it. Please go do some exercise... do you want to be a fit entrepreneur or a fat one".

My lips almost automatically defended myself
"BUT BUT... I PLAY BADMINTON!!!"
She said
"Badminton isn't enough.. you need to swim.. or go to the gym and burn off all that fat...".

AUUUUUUUUGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

Somebody!!!

Please... PLEASE TELL MY MUM.... that.. that

I'M NOT FAT!!! I'M JUST BIG-BONED!!!!

And and.... that the camera adds 10 pounds!!!

Aiyah, swimming ain't too hard. Get all the Nuffies to join you. Start a physical 'benefits' program for the company so everyone stays healthy.

But don't tell them it's really to support your personal exercising schedule. LOL! *grin*

Hi Timothy,
I beg you to assist. All of a sudden, all three nuffnang ad units went missing from my blog since 3pm yesterday. I logged a report to Technical Support at around 7pm same day (report no.:47908CC5) but no acknowldegement given or actions taken.

I reported again, with attachment of my blog and my blog's html where there are the nuffnang codes at around 10.45am today, but to no avail.

I even called in KL and Penang offices this morning but no answers.

FYI, I'm currently running an advert (to end today) for my leaderboard unit and there'll be an incoming advert (starting tomorrow) for my leaderboard unit.

I've even re-include nuffnang codes to my blog's html.

Please help
