Pedal With Sanz Trial Video :)

Hi there!

About a month ago, my ex-boss turned good friend and mentor came over to Langkawi unexpectedly! He was here for a short project and it was great being able to catch up with him while he was here. We haven't seen or spoken to each other for over 6 years! He is still the same, fit as ever!

I managed to bring him for cycling before he flew back to New Zealand and he made a short video for me, It's pretty cool! Thanks Darren!

I will use it as part of my promotion for now until I can make an official video clip for Pedal With Sanz Excursions.

Anyway, do take a look and and hope you'll enjoy it!


Darren and me!

Pedal With Sanz......Maiden Excursion!!

Hi there!

We were very happy to receive our first cycling group from Kuala Lumpur to try out our excursions.. . 

Although they came with a mixed of two folding bikes, one road bike and one hybrid bike with slick tires, they were able to ride on sandy and pebbled surfaces. Mountain bikes or bikes with thicker tires will be most suitable for our excursions.

We rode through lovely green paddy fields which were ripening and turning to gold,  along riverbends and just enjoying the picturesque countryside. We also rode on the breakwater with the sea on both sides. Towards the end, we were riding on an empty tarred road that seemed to go on for miles! It was exhilrating!!!

The weather was also on our side for the 3 days as it was mostly cloudy and cool. All in all, it was a good experience for us.....we got to make new friends while showing them the beauty of this island! 

A great start to the new year! Here's to more exciting things to come!

Cheers :)

We were LIVE on National TV!! :)

Hi there!!

A few days ago, I received a call from a TV host, Sayed who was interested to do a live interview with me about my book on national TV!! He told me it was going to be a 10 minute segment. Actually, he reminded me that he did ask me before about 2 years ago but the timing wasn't right then.....

Now, if I thought public speaking was nerve-wrecking, try being interviewed on LIVE TV! Triple the anxiety!! I tend to freeze up when the camera is shooting at me and to make matters worse....the interview was done in Bahasa Malaysia (BM), our national language which I am not so fluent in! Help!

So you can picture me trying to answer his questions in BM, mixed in with a good dose of English, while trying to stay as natural as I can be in front of the camera! It was the longest 10 minutes I have ever endured!

I didn't let anyone know about the upcoming interview because I knew I would be like a robot but alas, someone who knew me watched it and he was kind enough to send me a snapshot of the interview! But actually, that worked out fine.....just a snapshot will do for marketing purposes.

So I thought I got scot-free without having to watch my own interview and nobody else could either !! Yahoo! I was a happy camper for all but 5 minutes when I found out some of my friends managed to find it on youtube and were watching it! Yikes!!!

But wait a did they find out so fast??!!! I thought it was owned by the TV station??


So now that I know it's already out there, .do I want to watch it?? Err....not really! But I felt I had to because if I wanted to improve myself in front of a camera in future, I have to see what needs to be improved on. Just take a look at my host.....such a natural in front of the camera but then again, he had 18 years of experience!

So with a thumping heart, I searched for the segment online and found it and started watching.When I saw myself talking at the beginning of the interview, I cringed! I felt so embarrassed! I couldn't continue watching it....

Then I told myself to stop being such a drama queen and to step it up! So I forced myself to watch the whole segment again with critical eyes. Yes, I know I am my own worst critic!

Well, the more I watched, the more I realised it wasn't as bad as I thought it was because some parts, they did focus on my books and not on me! Phew!!

But still, there were some parts that still made me cringed inside!

Anyway, I am very thankful to have had this opportunity to be on air to promote my book. At least, now I can say that my book has been promoted nationwide!

Besides, how often do I get a chance to say that I have been on TV? (although it was only 10 minutes of fame!) hehehe..... is indeed full of unexpected surprises!!! :)
