Glimpse into the Unknown…
My dear friend, Li Kim, is once again featured in the news. This time the New Straits Times interviewed her for her role as the host of The Paranormal Zone. She sure is getting popular! Hehe..
The Paranormal Zone is a TV series on paranormal activity. This will be their first season, which is due to be aired on our local channel NTV 7 premiering on the 1st of October 2012.
I like what was mentioned in the article… where there will be no fabrication and special visual effects in their episodes. It will literally be, “What you see is what you get”.
Do read the article below and make sure you watch the premier of The Paranormal Zone tomorrow!

GET ready for a dose of the strange and unexplained. From haunted houses to child apparitions, a new TV series The Paranormal Zone will entertain, scare and possibly shed some light on these fascinating stories and mysterious accounts.
With its tagline, “What we see may not be real, what is real we may not see”, The Paranormal Zone premieres this Monday on ntv7.
The new reality-based documentary is hosted by the charming and bubbly Phng Li Kim. At The Paranormal Zone launch party in Petaling Jaya, she said: “The truth is that I’ve never been normal and I do believe in the existence of ghosts and paranormal activity.”
A business woman and motivational speaker, Phng is currently CEO of Kechara Media & Publications, as well as one of the directors of the Kechara organisation.
Phng explained that The Paranormal Zone featured real stories and each topic presented was thoroughly researched.
“There’s no fabrication and no added special visual effects. When we came across stories that needed to be manufactured, we scrapped them and moved on,” said Phng.
So don’t expect to see explicit horror movie versions of paranormal activity. Phng said although there were creepy or scary moments, viewers would only see more subtle visuals.
An episode that dealt with haunted houses had Phng staying in one alone for two hours.
“There was an infra-red camera that captured energies in the form of mists, glowing orbs of light and fast lights rushing across the screen,” she said.
According to Phng, The Paranormal Zone is meant for everyone — believers and sceptics alike — to find out more about the unknown. Viewers can make up their own minds after watching or choose to pursue the topics in depth at their leisure.
“I’m not qualified to give people advice on the paranormal but what makes me not afraid though is the compassion I have for these unseen beings,” said the 40-year-old mother of three.
“My spiritual teacher says that all these spirits are basically lives — with emotions, feelings and thoughts — just like humans except that they don’t have human bodies.
“This knowledge helps me to keep calm and unafraid,” said Phng trekked into dense forests and hung out at cemeteries to investigate the unknown.
Produced by Kechara InMotion, each 30-minute episode will offer both the mystical and academic perspectives on a particular topic.
The first season consisting of 13 episodes in English, will cover various aspects of the paranormal realm from haunting, cryptozoology, spirits and trances to local myths, dreams and alternative healing.
Along the way Phng and her team talk to celebrities, researchers, practitioners and enthusiasts, as well as believers and sceptics about their experiences.
The first season features Phng and her team travelling around the country. She said there were plans to expand and include regional phenomena in the future.
Catch The Paranormal Zone every Monday. The premiere episode, The Ghost Child is at 9pm on ntv7 this Monday.
