PlacesAndFoods.com Live on Radio Capital FM 88.9 with Kuali.com and Asha Gill
Yes, I was live on radio for Malaysian all women radio station Capital FM 88.9 with Kuali.com. This is a new segment on every Tuesday 10 am where Capital FM 88.9 will talk with food related personalities with collaboration with Kuali.com. I was one of them as a food and travel blogger.

I have no idea what are the questions prepared for me as I entered to the all women studio of Capital FM. There I met gorgeous Asha Gill and we had a great chat before realizing we needed to be on air asap!

For those who forgotten Asha, she was the VJ for Channel V and also co-host of the popular TV series, Lonely Planet Six Degrees. Rachel loves her personality and her sexy voice and we followed some of her crazy adventure in Lonely Planet Six Degrees.
You get lots of fun in the studio with Asha Gill.
In one of my adventures in Buenos Aires, I went to the colourful town of La Boca. There I met Tango Artist Guillermo Alio who was featured in Asha’s TV series. What a small world?
Back in the studio, we did a quick discussion on our topic and I have 5 quick 2.5 minutes segments on the half an hour program sponsored by Kuali.com
I believed I fumbled here and there, it could be better.
For the starter, I introduce myself as a blogger and also on my passion on blogging as a food and travel blogger.
Next, we talked about how blogs evolve with the current trend inclusive of application of social media. Not forgetting about our blog sponsorship by Tourism Authority of Thailand, Tourism Australia, Tourism Tasmania and Destination New South Wales.
Imagine we were doing this in the studio?
Then we talked about my experiences in Ushuaia Argentina and also some of the adventures I missed in Antarctica. Thus the King Crab experiences at the southernmost city too.
We went on to talk about my recent trip to Tasmania and the food specialties there such as scallop pies, oysters and oyster stout. We also talked about the short walks in Tasmania.
Lastly, I fumbled on the next big food hit list to go as I always wanted to go back to Kobe for the beef. Hence, I made up the story of wanted to visit the Big Apple (New York) again for the most expensive ice cream in the world, the US1,000 ice cream.
It was a fun experience and we laughed our hearts out off-air. Asha is a nice humble and lovely person to work with. It was a great opportunity to be live on air with Asha and hope to meet her soon.
If you are wondering, we couldn’t get the actual copy of the recording of our interview so we could only do this blogpost. Thanks for the support everyone!
Listen to Asha Gill every morning from 10 am at Capital FM 88.9.
Lastly, we must thank Kuali.com for inviting me for the show. Do remember to visit their site at www.Kuali.com and also there are some short facts on the Women Power Radio FM, the Capital FM 88.9 below. Have a great day!
