oh man hectic hectic but im liking it..

huhuhu its 5.58am now and i just reached home from a KFC shoot for TVC that should be hitting the tv stations soon insyaallah.. the shoot was really tiring. i had to act with my eyes closed which now i also found out that im a bit cacat that i could not fully shut my eyes without making a conciose effort hummm .. cacatkan.. my sparing patner for this ad is an old friend of mine wai hong yup after so long of not seeing him finally we get to star in an ad together syukur..
this ad also marks my come back to the world of tvc's after my last job which was the streamyx blue hyppo and ironicly my director for this ad is also the same director for the same blue hyppo ad that i shot about more than 7 years ago.. alhamdullilah and insyallah i hope to get more chances to do commercials as in a way everything is shot within the given time and you really have to push boundries to be able to deliver to that little stage of yours..
the best part of it all was that from long long ago i have told myself that one day i woud get to work with the great Alex Eu. well for you guys out there who does not know him, he is make up guru to the celebrities, fashion host and 1 of kl's top socialites.. and today alhamdullilah i had the pleasure of having Alex do my make up. when i got to the shoot venue i saw him and i got star struck and knew at that moment that one of my wishes from long before is gonna come true and sure enough Alex waved his magic on me. he is so down to earth and such a sweetheart. woowww no air at all but 1 could still feel his aura and presence.. the shoot was a night shoot and till the wee hours just know Alex was still calm and compose and that really increased my respect towards him.

Baki zainal with Alex Eu.. thanks Alex for making Baki Zainal look good in the KFC Shoot.

in a couple of hours time i would have to be in Celebrity Chat studios with my guest Dynaz n Bunkface and soon after i have shoots and stuff already lined up for the week to keep me busy.. which in a way i am really greatful for.. syukur.. its a hectic schedual and i am liking it. i hope it does continue as i want to work and challenge myself as to see myself soar to greater highs.. ok then guys am going off now catch you guys later.. sesungguhnya baki zainal sayang kamu

Abang Saya....

well its been sometime again since i last blogged and so i decided that on what ever conditions i shall blog tonight and share with you guys what i have been thinking.. insyaallah.. well where do i start ya ohh before that i want to congratulate my kor kor Alan Thoo and his beautiful wife Cheryl for their latest addition to the Thoo family which is my Kai Chai. Vee Shaun. Alan and cheryl im sure you guys are gonna make really good parents and i shall join in the fun of spoiling Vee..

frm left: Baki Zainal standing next to his brother "apek rambutan" and his family.

Ok, humm its never been made clear of how many actual siblings does Baki Zainal have. well guys i shall slowly answer that question soon and reveal it slowly.. just for the record i have a huge family hahahaha and to some it might just be tad bit over whelming.. and i am proud of it.
till today i could still recall the vivid memory of being introduced to a fairly tall chinese looking gentleman bearing 'Rambutans" to the house one day and innocently i called out for my papa telling him that "ada apek datang jual rambutan' when then i realised after being introduced the said gentleman is my fathers eldest son from a previous marriage... and from that day on wards i had a much much older brother that i knew as Abang Paul. our age gap was just too far apart He should be 30 odd years different than me.. his youngest son is of the same age as me. ahahaha.. growing up i never really clicked with my brother i guess being that papa only has 2 sons i guess maybe because of the vast age gap it never really dawned to me at that time to get to know him better and bond.. honestly i have always treated him as another older person that i would then have to listen to and eventually respect.. of course i knew and i honor the fact that he is family but at the same time i seldom get to spend long period of time with Abg Paul.. we would only meet and greet during Syawal and then another year passes.. it was much of a different scenario with my other sisters who are also papa's off springs frm his marriage to "Big Ma".
i felt my sisters love and care and i really knew them i guess but then with "Abg Paul its a different ball game maybe its just we are men thus we dont really wear our emotions on our selves issue and matter.. subhanallah..
now at the age of 28 i realize and i regret the time i missed out in getting to know this person who shares the same genes and seeds as i do.. one way or the other i see our fathers trades in both of us.. Zainol's sons hahahahahaha i missed my brother.. the school teacher that many respected and feared . the father of 4 who has brought up caring and respecting sons and daughter , the man who fishes to clear his mind off daily turmoils who now likes getting his hands soiled with the earth and dirt that he calls his garden.. recently my nephew who is my age got married and Abg Paul called upon me to be there representing our side of the family since most of the girls are in australia and new zealand.. at first i cringed with the idea of having to face relatives that would not let me off until i invite them over for Nasi Beryani at my wedding.. but a little voice inside me kept telling me that another part of you needs you there and papa would be ever so proud to see his 2 sons standing there together as a remembrance to the world out there that Zainol has 2 sons that he is proud off.. last 16th of june was my papa's death anniversary.. and prior to the wedding my Abang hosted a Tahlil at his house and one of the desserts for the night is my papa's favourite dish "bubur kacang hijau with durian'. my abang insisted that his wife adds the durian into the bubur kacang as that was how our papa would have enjoyed it. . growing up i never really favored bubur kacang hijau.. but after not tasting it for so long that first spoon into my mouth tasted comfortable (i can't really find the actually word to describe that feeling and sensation) it just felt right.. and i never knew i liked it too. those few short moments chatting with my Abang seemed so natural even so we have not seen each other for very long time.. and standing there as he introduced me to the guest and people around him as his little brother i cant help but to feel warm and a sense of belonging.. papa has always taught me to honor family and just by being there on that day i felt as if there was so much of my brothers life that i have missed out on.. may be he feels the same way too..
my brother now lives 40 minutes away from me.. and i vow that i would try to get to know him and make up for the time that we have missed out from each others lives.. precious moments that might not be able to repeat its self .. but i am yet ready to miss out on more of my brothers life.. papa would be ever so proud to see his 2 sons standing handsomely side by side that day knowing in that silence that they were one way or the other bonding as family, as brothers as how they did that winters day not long ago while they tried to catch a glimpse and catch a memory of that 1 man who connects them, that 1 man that they both loved, respected and looked up too, that 1 man who both of them knows they will never be able to match his stride . that 1 man who both of them calls papa.
i have an elder brother and his name is Paul Abdul Rahman Zainol. he is 63 years old and i am proud to call him Abang. ... Insyallah..

I dedicate this entry to all Fathers out there Baki Zainal salutes you and wishes you Happy Fathers Day!!

Al-fatehah buat Papa ku tersayang Zainal Bin Abu Taib. Semoga Allah Mencucuri Rahmat Keatas rohnya.

I Love you papa............

yes finally i am back on line.. wow where to start and how to start its been really long since i last wrote on this blog telling it my daily meanderings and so now i am gonna start to do so since i have just gotten myself my first ever unibody mac book pro.. alhamdullilah thank you...
the past month has been this really fast moving quicksilver motion that kinda leaving me craving for more and at the same time moving slowly into a direction of confiusion.. no doubt that im thankful tapi pada segalanya did i really managed to get a strong hold of what it all really means or have i just bulldozed over this really priceless experience subahanallah .. hanya allah saje yang akan tahu jawapan ini..
well im gonna start blogging slowly and yes i promise i will update and blog more notifying you guys what have i been up too and what i have been putting my nose into but certain projects has to be kept under covers until my producers let me reveal it. but dont worry i shall update you guys as much as i could as fast as i could ya..
before i go have you guys wondered what would be the 5 things that you must have as a traveler or when you go out traveling . i know some people have o have their pillow case with them and they would then keep on sniffing it or else they get restless at night. or how bout some people that would literally bring a whole phamarcy with them as they would want to be prepared to if any sickness be falls them.. humm well i guess in my case i would have to say top 5 items that baki zainal must have on his journeys as a traveler would be..

1. Earth Keepers from Timberland
2. Oakley Sun glasses.
3. Ipod touch 32g
4. Canon G10
5. Baby's lip balm from kiehl's

hummm, well as i said these 5 items is something extra tht you would take on the trip but hook or by crook you'll have it with you ohh ya in later shoots another secret would be "Make Up Store's bronzer" to give you the constant healthy sunkissed macho indiana jones look.

so before i go to bed hope you guys like these pictures.. sesungguhnya baki sayang kamu..
