Channel 8 news feature about my Mr Lee Kuan Yew tribute drawing

After my Mr. Lee Kuan Yew tribute drawing went viral last month (with around 828,000 people reached, 31,000 likes and 3,500 shares), I was contacted to appear on Channel 8 news because they wanted to do a feature about the social media response towards Mr. Lee's passing.

We were supposed to shoot from 10am but the camera crew was delayed and we could not find each other (there were... two bridges...). So we ended up shooting around 10.45am when it was starting to get pretty hot.

They requested for a demo so I tried to replicate again.

A few NG were taken because either the face was off or the camera moved.

We finally finished the shoot in 40min time although screen time was only 40 secs! It's good I didn't try to be a youtuber because I stammered so much! Luckily my answer to the last question was a lot better and made it to the final cut (WHEW!). We also had difficulty shooting that famous photo of my drawing in front and shophouses behind because the wind was very strong. We had to use tape in the end to stick it down.

 I felt like a roasted chicken by noon but managed to get a selfie with the pretty reporter Khai Yan!

I was on my way back from my KL book signing so I missed the live telecast on Sunday April 12th! But my friends helped me recorded through their handphones:
