On the 1st of July, 2011, I was interviewed on my career and other interests on tv9 for a program called Safiyya. They interviewed me at my office. I was quite nervous (to put it mildly) when the interviewer told me that the interview will be in Malay. Of course, I speak Malay, but I realize that I have a habit of mixing Malay and English without realizing it. But when I was asked to speak Malay, I felt very self conscious. I felt that my Malay was not baku (formal Malay) enough (I'm sure you get what I mean right? Right?) and not TV material enough. I was really nervous (understatement of the year) and I think in my efforts to try and speak proper Malay I may have overcompensated and couldn't speak like I normally would! erk.
