We ARE on TV!!!

So our whole family knew the date and timing. 17 April 2011, 8.20pm, Starhub Cable TV Channel 201. By 8pm, everyone was back at home and seated on the living room. The 6 of us had only 1 thing on our mind. "When's the proposal clip coming out?"

For Teacher Jerry, I guess I was the most nervous. "What if they never show the proposal!?" "What if I appear too fat on TV?" "What if.. " "What if..."

Hee... And so, we switched channel from Channel 8 Star awards to Channel 201 at 8.15pm. =)

It's both and honour and pride that I was given a Singapore Flag beside my name. Honestly, when I first saw that, I just wanted to thank Singapore for giving me all the opportunities. WOOoooo HooOOO!!! Teacher Jerry is a celebrity!

And here's my Pre Race interview. (Sorry for the voice muffer. Trying to figure out how to record it perfectly. But I provide subtitle for your entertainment! Hee....)

Commentator: " And we are back for more action at the 2011 Aviva Ironman 70.3 Singapore. You know there is a lot of good reasons to be nervous to a start for an event like this. But this guy, has even more reason to sweat."

Interviewer: "You got a real reason to be nervous for this event."

Teacher Jerry: "Yah! Yeah! I plan to propose to my girlfriend this year at the finishing line. This Sunday will be our 1st year anniversary."

Interviewer: "Does she have any idea this is going to happen?"

Teacher Jerry: " No. I hope to see her after the swim, the bike and the run! And the surprise will come in at the run part."

Commentator: "Like for this guy. His focusing and determination on just 1 thing right now. Getting to the finishing line and his bride to be. Question is. Will she say YES?"

Commentator: "Well, speaking of no man's land. When we last met Jerry Toh within no man's land. But now, probably the most important day of his life. Here is his fiancées - Summer Toh Xiaoxin. Will she say Yes? Because Jerry down on his knee ready to propose. Good news for Jerry. She did!!"

We had only just 1 minute of fame but it's going to be a 1 life time of memory for the whole family. Most importantly, I declared my love for Xiaoxin to the whole world.

Once again, Thank you to everyone who have helped make my proposal a success. Also to everyone who congratulated us. Thank you! Now I can announced. I am engaged to Miss Toh Xiaoxin!! =) Hee....

And for those who missed out, there's a re-telecast this tuesday 19 April 2011 @ 1pm! Same channel, 201, SuperSports Arena!
