Have you ever wondered what your favourite Facebook Creator’s strange habits or top local dishes are? In this series of interviews, we sat down with the stars of Dari Hati, an eGGs-clusive documentary programme, to ask them a few lighthearted questions that were too amusing for the show!
Even though mobile gaming is all the rage in the Facebook Gaming streaming world, Chiko likes to keep it old school, sticking to his trusty PC games. His main content comprises role-playing in Grand Theft Auto Online, as well as playing Dota 2 and PUBG PC from time to time. But, Chiko isn’t all about gaming – sometimes he just enjoys chatting with his viewers while he browses the Net, listening to music or checking out any interesting online content that his fans suggest in the comments section.
If you could compare yourself with any animal, which would it be and why?
A wolf, because it runs in packs like I do. I value my fans, friends and family a lot – without them, I wouldn’t be here.
What are three things you can’t live without?
My Mom, Internet and my friends.
What are your top 3 local foods?
- Nasi lemak rendang
- Nasi goreng daging merah
- Anything that my Mom cooks, especially her sambal
What weird beliefs or superstitions do you have?
If you skip out on maghrib prayers, the kopek hantu will come and kidnap you.
What was the first video game you ever played? How were you introduced to it? How did you feel about the game?
For offline, it’s Half-Life. I played it in a cybercafe when I was in Standard One. I actually vomited from motion sickness the first two days, but I kept playing anyway and eventually became good at the game. On the other hand, Ragnarok Online is my first ever online game.
What’s one funny/interesting habit/fact about yourself that no one else knows about you?
I used to be an athlete in school, mainly as a sprinter and relay runner, the kind where you pass the baton. I even played rugby too.
Which country do you dream of living in, and why?
Mexico, because I like their culture – very laid back, village-like atmosphere, which I love. I’m not a fan of cities, I feel it’s a bit messy and noisy.
What is your worst habit?
I like to tease my girlfriend, like farting out of nowhere when she’s with me.
