Met my mentor, Mr. Nizal Mohammad! Alhamdulillah, I accidentally spotted him when I was taking a stroll at E@Curve last Monday. I took out the camera and approached him at San Francisco Coffee when he was chatting with Zaim, the host of Malaysia Hari Ini. Alhamdulillah, I consider our gathering as the meeting session of three generations of Malaysia Hari Ini, a popular morning talk-show on TV3. Mr Nizal represents the pioneer line-up of the show, Zaim as the current host of MHI and insyaallah one day I will be the next host of Malaysia Hari Ini.
I have a long history with Mr Nizal because I have always adored him on Malaysia Hari Ini since I was a kid. When other kids are outside playing with their friends in the morning, I would wake up very early and turn on the TV just to watch my favorite show, Malaysia Hari Ini. It was weird for some of my friends that I enjoyed watching TV rather than having fun with them but that was my major inspiration of the world of journalism/hosting.
Now I cannot wait to graduate and pursue my dream to becoming a television host one day. I know that this is such a controversial action since my parents do not know of my true ambition in life, and some of my friends are also against my decision but we will see. Insyaallah, if there is a "rezeki" for me in this industry then I will go for it, and if I don't I will continue to becoming a teacher/lecturer insyaallah. Dare to Dream people, only the sky is the limit. Take care and God bless :)
