After the whole assq saga, I don’t get to see all my presenters/DJs monthly like I used to but I’m glad we are always in touch one way or another… Recently Oman wants their Hindi program presented; I get to work with my assq Hindi presenter, Monica, once again. Monica is a very nice lady and owns two 7-11 stores. She is very happy to be back working with me but I told her yesterday it will be our 1st and last recording for I’ve tendered. She was very upset and chided me for bringing her back and leaving her here. She went on about stuffs like what if she can’t get along with the new staff, what if she feels uncomfy doing recording without me etc etc… Monica and I shared a very good working relationship and after a year (we have been working together for 5 years now) she was more open and not as aloof as when she started… she shared a lot on her personal life and how she struggled after her husband (our previous presenter) passed away and how her whole life turn a whole 360 degree! We both teared while she shared her story with me during one recording session! She used to teach singing lessons and sang with her husband and stopped since he passed away. She didn’t have the courage to sing since and on our last assq recording together she suddenly sang and I couldn’t stop tearing; her voice is beautiful with so much love and feelings in it. She gave me a big hug before she left and as I walked her out, she said a few times to me “Remember, if you cannot find a job which I don’t think you would have problem, come to me. I will give u a job.” *MAD TOUCHED*
Douglas, my Korean presenter, is back from Korea and came to pick up CDs for recording. I broke the news to him and he didn’t understand why I have to leave and said that he continued doing this program in the 1st place cos it was fun working with me and cos I’ve asked him to help and now he wants to reconsider. He went on saying “thank you Mag, you helped me so much and I believe you will do big outside and I’ll keep a lookout for you too.” I thought it was really sweet and uber nice to hear. I asked him to help buy Dermal masks cos its sooooo much cheaper in Korea and he bought me 40 packets of the ones I wanted and refuse to take my money! *MAD TOUCHED*
Mary jiejie dated me out for makan when I told her I’ve tendered! I was complaining to her about Jay’s concert and she jio-ed me to HKG with her to catch him in Sept. I love Mary jiejie for we can bitch comfortably, share food and are always laughing away like mad women.
We have Xuelian jie who never fails to sms me to check if all is good and well… we have yet to meet up due to each other busy schedule. Promise to catch up soon too for some good shopping that I’ve promised you.
Esther, my other Korean presenter, who is equally nice and left me cute post-its on my desk when she comes for Weiting’s recording late at night! This woman became so much louder and wilder as the years past and we have already set a date for dinner!
Many of my presenters are very nice people and I’m glad to say we aren’t just working partners but are friends. Thanks for all the well wishes and good memories… We will always be in touch. =]
