+ Part 1 : Aishah Jennifer Sinclair & Sheikh Abdul Shahnaz +
+ pretty peektures have covered all events starting from akad nikah on January 7, aishah's garden wedding on the same day and shahnaz's reception on the 8th. the following is an excerpt from NST about our bride for this entry, aishah jennifer sinclair, now mrs
She comes across as a nice fun person but SUBASHINI NAIR discovers the serious side to 8tv host Aishah Sinclair...
IN person, the new 8TV Voice Your Choice presenter Aishah Sinclair comes across as full of infectious enthusiasm. When you get to know her better, you discover that this 25-year-old Eurasian (English and Malay parents) miss is rather serious about her career.
Voice Your Choice is not Aishah’s first foray into the tube world. That introduction started with a Pepsi commercial in 1998. She immediately caught the eye with her Pan-Asian look.
Her list of credentials includes commercials for Fair and Lovely, Twisties, Padini Authentic, Cadbury and Dutch Lady. For films, she has made guest appearance in Gol & Gincu and Bujang Senang while she was the host for Pilates in Astro Ria and Life Traits in RTM.
This petite beauty, who will be tying the knot next month, says she loves being a TV host.
So when she was offered Voice Your Choice, Aishah says she “grabbed it”. “I was working in public relations in an agency when I received this offer. I grabbed it because I have always wanted to work in 8TV with the young and trendy bunch. Plus, I realised I didn’t quite like working 9 to 5.
“I have now become attached to the show. It’s fun and I get to meet and interview celebrities every week.”
It sounds like a joyride, doesn’t it? But Aishah confesses that when she started, she was “not exactly into music”. She owes much to her colleague Rina Omar (8tv Quickie presenter).
“I must thank Rina as she helps me with the scripts. She gives me the script and allows me to change where necessary. There is so much flexibility working with the 8tv people. So it is sad that I have only owned three CDs in my life.”
Aishah also adds that she wants to be more hands-on in the production of the show. “It’s all a learning experience and I will definitely pick up on other aspects of production in the next season.”
Five years on...
Like all ambitious people, Aishah would like to see herself grow in the industry. “I’d like to be a more matured presenter focusing on serious issues and topics. And go ‘live’ in front of a studio audience. That would be challenging.
“I’ve always admired Oprah Winfrey and the way she has risen to challenges despite the problems she went through.
“She is one of my role models and she has inspired me.”
Aishah who holds a degree in Mass Communications from Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) has a deep love for the environment, particularly the leatherback turtles that seem to have stopped coming to Malaysia.
“My mother founded Children’s Environmental Heritage Foundation (Yayasan Anak Warisan Alam) and my dad supports her. We grew up being involved in many environmental projects.
“I still remember when I was six years old; we went on a family trip to the East Coast. It was about 3am and someone came knocking on our door asking us to see the leatherback turtles laying eggs. I was so excited. When we got there, we saw people sitting on the turtles and some stealing the eggs.
“My dad was so sad; he couldn’t bear to see it. The foundation has grown and we are organising a conference with the United Nations next year.”
Voice Your Choice
Aired over 8tv every Tuesday at 9.30pm, it is a request show with local artistes of the viewers’ choice playing guest host.
There is also a segment called The Burning Question that puts the guest artiste on the spot with questions that viewers have always wanted to ask.
All requests for music videos and local artistes, as well as The Burning Question submissions, go to firstname.lastname@example.org.
