As Resensi is a Malay program, the interview was conducted in Bahasa Malaysia. In school, I had done reasonably well in BM, even outdoing the only Malay boy in my class in exams. But it had been many decades since I last used the language actively. So I had to prepare my script in Malay and rehearse them so that I didn’t sound too kekok. Must’ve worked because my sister said that I sounded very natural and confident. But then, she’s my sister-lah.If you’re interested in all things book-related, make it a point to catch Resensi. Writers, this is a good platform for you to promote your book too.
