A few things I learned after my appearance on Kababayan LA:
- Apparently, Daniel Day Lewis won some sort of an award.
- Kababayan LA's Oh So Lovely Host, Ms. Jannelle So, is Oh So Lovelier in the flesh.
- The camera doesn't only add 10 pounds, it adds a giant fat face to otherwise semi-normal and proportionate food blogger bodies.
With all that said, I still had a very good time taping my segment about "blogging." Like I mentioned in my previous post, I really had no idea what to expect going into this. And when I arrived at the LA 18 studios yesterday, I only met with the Oh So Lovely Ms. So for 2, maybe 3, minutes before I went on camera.
During this short meeting, the Oh So Lovely Ms. So explained that she would be asking me the "positives and negatives" of blogging--and that was pretty much all the notice I got as far as what I'd be asked. It seemed pretty general, but I figured I could handle it and get some of my points across.
Also during this briefing, the Oh So Lovely Ms. So said that she had forgotten that she would be doing an Oscar wrap-up show that day and that I probably wouldn't be on for very long--which in all honesty, was kind of a relief to me. I was extremely nervous at this point and figured that the less time I was on camera the better.
After our little impromptu chat, the petite, red-clad hostess left me to my own devices in the green room while she went on camera to conduct an over-the-phone-interview with another guest for that day's show--a Pinoy news anchor from the BBC.
At this point, my nerves were really getting the best of me. I knew that in a couple of minutes, I'd be called in for my on-camera interview. I was doing everything I could to not piss myself.
