'10' (Sepuluh) - Teaser Trailer

For those who's anxiously awaiting the mini series to be on Astro Citra, here's a teaser trailer of the show from Episode 1.

Hope you enjoy it!

'10' (Sepuluh) - A new mini seires from Astro Citra

There was a time when a football game was more than just a game. It was a time when the game united all supporters; young and old, near and far. It was also a time when the stands in the stadium is packed with charged up emotions rooting for their teams to win. Players play not for money but for pride and glory for their team.

After a long wait, I am excited with the upcoming release of another amazing Astro Citra mini series in their 'Suatu Ketika...' slot. For the whole of September, '10' will be brought to the screens of Mustika pack subscribers. It is a fictionalised story about Malaysian football and footballers. More importantly, it's a story that bring us back to the glory days of the game in this country and hopefully will reignite the same passion that have since gone by.

The 8-part mini series stars Beto Kusyairy (of Warkah Terakhir fame), Norman Hakim, Anding Indrawani, Cheryl Samad, Intan Ladyana, Radhi Khalid, Kee Thuan Chye and Yusmal Ghazali. It begins 2nd September 2009, every Wednesday and Thursday night at 9pm.

So all you local football fans (especially Selangor!!), here your chance to catch a glimpse of a great Malaysian football story. And for non-football fans, feel the emotions of the characters. As with all great stories, it will have you thinking about what we had, what went wrong and what are we going to do about it NOW!

Hidup Malaysia!

Your Mekanik finalists - Vote now!

It's AWUNDI time again!! This week it's the Mekanik.

When tonight's episode of Pentas Anak Wayang ended, we are left with Afzan and Lan out of the 5 contestants. These two guys are the best of the lot during the Pentas show. Consistent and understands the requirements.

Sadly, Lokman didn't go all out. Biel was too over-confident and kinda annoyed one of the jury, Rashid Sibir. And unfortunately for Amar, good looks just does not translate to great performances as he seem to hold back on what he could've done.

Don't get me wrong, all three of those eliminated can be good actors. Their mistake on Pentas was not being able to shine under pressure. It doesn't matter how talented you are inside. What matters more is for you to show it in front of the audience.

A message to all future Anak Wayang contestants : use Pentas Anak Wayang carefully. It is an important stage to let other people experience you and your talent. It is the stage that can decide whether you stay or you leave the show. Don't play-play!!

I hope the rest of the contestants are serious with their goal of wanting to be an actor. It's really no joke and it is not easy. It's hard work!! Here's your one chance to shine, so use it to the max. And it doesn't require you to be OTT!!

But for this week, remember to AWUNDI AFZAN or AWUNDI LAN to 32999 to choose your favourite Mekanik to be featured in Kecuali Cintamu on Astro Prima. Votes will close 12 noon on Sunday, so hurry up!

Anak Wayang - New time slots!!
