Smita Sharma and I promoted the “Aiyoh… Wat Lah?! Awards”, with Umapagan Ampikaipakan and Caroline Oh on the Evening Edition.[audio http://www.bfm.my/assets/site/play.php?f=assets/files/daily_show/2013-04-02_EE_AiyohWatLah.mp3&p=8907&r=16561]
Prelude by BFM:
We’ve cringed, looked away, slapped our palms on our foreheads every time we read about or hear what prominent Malaysian figures have to say. And to further express our disdain, our actions are usually accompanied by a very typically Malaysian “Aiyoooooo”.
So, good on the Joint Action Group for Gender Equality (JAG) for gathering all distasteful comments made throughout the year for fellow Malaysians to read and vote on. The 2nd annual Aiyoh Wat Lah Awards 2013 will reveal whose comments reigned victorious in the issues of sexism, misogyny, homophobia and/or transphobia.
Interview aired on BFM on 2 April 2013.
