Featured on Kababayan LA

by arnold on April 3, 2009

I didn’t do a very good job promoting this appearance, but I was the featured blogger on Kababayan LA’s weekly segment known as Viral Thursdays. Hosted by Jannelle So, Kababayan LA is a LA18’s daily Filipino newsmagazine show. It airs weekday afternoons at 4:30pm on Channel 18 in Southern California.

I thought the interview went really well, and we talked about a range of topics, including my blogging origins, Ad Hoc’s Swine and Wine and my Filipino Spaghetti post, which Jannelle said gave her a Jollibee craving.

Here’s the video. My segment starts at the 57-second mark.

When I was talking about the Ad Hoc Swine and Wine, they showed some random pictures of lechon as I was talking, probably because I didn’t have any other pictures of the actual Ad Hoc pig posted here. I thought that was pretty funny.

Despite how serious I look, I had a really good time. I wasn’t able to see Jannelle during the interview, so I was forced to respond to her questions while staring into my laptop camera, which was awkward. Luckily, my face isn’t on screen as much as it could have been.

Thanks to Jannelle and everyone at Kababayan LA for having me on the show. Let’s do it again some time!

Too cool! (Despite the fact that I didn’t understand part of the intro…) ;)

Congrats on the TV appearance!

@Omid: Thanks! If it makes you feel better, I didn’t understand most of the intro either. :)

While SPAM is more appropriate – I kind of liked the MAPS t-shirt.

You need to make that shirt and brand it! Good stuff Arnold.

@grace: I know…I know. I’m mad at myself for not mentioning it. I wasn’t expecting to talk about Ad Hoc so it caught me off guard…and I was already nervous enough! :)

Nice interview Arnie! I thought you did very well. Did your blog get a lot more hits as a result of the interview? Just curious.
