I guest-hosted an episode of ‘A Bit of Culture’ on BFM


BFM A bit of culture

So… Kam Raslan of the BFM rado show ‘A Bit of Culture‘ contacted me and asked if I would like to guest-host an episode of the show along with him and She Fah Szetu. Might as well, right? You can click the image above to listen to the episode or… just click here.

Here’s the BFM summary of the episode:

“Rising Ethnic Tensions” is a phrase commonly used to describe sticky situations in places like Rwanda or Crimea, but also, if we believe the media hype, in Malaysia. Is this for real or are we OK?  Journalist and Bedroom-podcaster Zan Azlee joins the fray to discuss Apathy, Media and Work vs Freelance.

And if you want to listen to The Fat Bidin Podcast hosted by me and my brother Aizyl Azlee, go here.

Looks like my book is going to pay for my new yacht!


It's there... you just have to look really hard!!

Looks like ‘Operation Nasi Kerabu…‘ made it to the bestseller shelf at Kinokuniya KLCC! I’m going to be able to buy that yacht I’ve always dreamed of after all!

So I googled my name last night when no one was watching…


Okay! I google my name in the middle of the night when nobody is watching. So sue me! But look what I found… a couple of online reviews of my book and DVD ‘Operation Nasi Kerabu:Finding Patani in an Islamic Insurgency‘! Click on the images to read the reviews. Thanks Khairul and Susan for the kind words. Your money will be deposited in to your accounts soon! Muahahaha!

I know you all tried your best. But fret not! The show is available for streaming or download so you can take it with you everywhere! Go listen now!

And just as a reminder to everyone, the book is available at all major bookstores for RM25… and you get a free DVD too! Or you can also purchase it online at the FATBIDIN E-STORE! Proceeds will go to buying my daughter milk and diapers.
