Story of my 1Malaysia. - Narcissism is Necessary

Story of my 1Malaysia.

Independence day is coming soon and we’re celebrating our 53rd National Day! Forget the make-believe commercials around these times of the year as it’d be much more enjoyable to watch and listen to real stories by real Malaysians! See all the instances and scenarios that encapsulate the essence of 1Malaysia. All of us surely has at least one story to tell where it makes them feel proud to be a Malaysian and for this, ASTRO is dedicating an entire channel to showcase all these stories. It’s called MySTORY (Channel 318) and you can watch it from 30th August to 16th September 2010.

And where is Astro going to get these stories from? Who else, but you, you and you :) ASTRO is inviting Malaysians from all walks of life life to share their heartwarming 1Malaysia stories in Bahasa Malaysia, English, Tamil, Mandarin, Iban, Kadazan or any language of their choice to be submitted to MYSTORY channel and so in celebration of our nation’s birthday I’ve decided to make a video of my 1Malaysia experience too.

I had so much fun shooting this video. Charlie, the star of my story was very co-operative :) He ran to me when I called him and sat when I commanded him too. He lied on the floor staring at me while I was speaking to the camera. Probably must have spooked him out that mummy was having a monologue with the scary flashy gadget ;)

This video is about my experience of losing Charlie one day due to my own carelessness and how total strangers helped us to reunite.

Hope you like this video!

As this meaningful project is a collaboration with AMP, personalities such as Raja Azura and Krill, Aznil Hj Nawawi, Jack Lim, JJ and Ean and many more will be telling their 1Malaysia stories on MySTORY. By sharing these heartwarming stories, we are reviving our spirits, morale and pride for Malaysia.

So share your stories too! Submit your video (maximum 5 minutes in length) before the closing date on 8 August 2010. For more information on the submission guidelines for MySTORY, please visit

    why suddenly your video is in black & white ?

    your video is no good, lack emotion and can be seen done with no interest.
