In this week’s 8 Days, Lush 99.5 FM DJ Rosalyn “Rozz” Lee talks about her very own Balik Kampong experience and what she absolutely cannot live without!

Catch our Finale episode of Throwback: Balik Kampong this Mother’s Day Sunday, 9:30 PM! Find out which Family will be crowned the Ultimate Kampong Champions!

Ever wondered what life on a kampong is like? The Awad family spoke to Haryani Ismail about their experiences in an article published in last Saturday’s Berita Harian.

In it Awad and Mag (as she’s fondly called on Throwback) discuss their experiences in the kampong with their twin children Hannah and Danish.

Mag talks about her initial apprehensions regarding hygiene standards and comfort. However, she came to enjoy the gotong-royong spirit that the Families nurtured as they cooked and shared their meals together.

Awad also shares a funny behind-the-scenes story that happened during the production!

CHAINED INSANITY was a Finalist in the Social Issues category of the recent New York TV & Film Festivals! The documentary followed the unwavering efforts of Dr Suryani to help Indonesians who have been chained up because of their mental conditions. The show aired in 2014 on Channel News Asia’s Undercover Asia strand. Congratulations to the team!
