"Ning is best known for her live stage performances. She is an actress and has had roles in musicals, ten major films, short films and several tele-movies."
Yours truly had the chance of a lifetime to get up and personal with this great artiste thanks to Nuffnang. Upon reaching Nuffnang's office, three other Nuffnang bloggers were already there and ready to join in the "meet and greet" session with Ning. I for one am extremely excited because I know how famous she is, and it's not everyday you get to meet up and chat with a true blue pop diva.

The next hour or so was spent with a whole lot of interaction with Ning Baizura. She was really down to earth and friendly, and answered all our questions with a smile. The environment was really cozy with lots of laughter in the room from all the silly questions we threw at her. From the short chit chat with her, I learnt so much.

For one, did you know Ning Baizura is really active in the social media networks now? Check her twitter and remember to follow her at @NingDalton! In fact she even started to blog now!
Ning Baizura's latest music album Dewa was just released last week. Still hot off the oven, we were ecstatic to receive a copy of her album complete with her personalized autograph. Ning took the effort to introduce to us Dewa, the reasons behind choosing the name, the songs contained within, and how it reflects her journey as an artiste through the times. Why only eight songs? That's so her fans get just enough to satiate their thirst, but not enough to fully satisfy and make them sleepy! "It's also a good number!, " Ning added.
"Each and every song inside Dewa is my favourite!", says Ning and I believe her, as after listening to her album, I think the music was just awesome. It was energetic with a lot of soul injected in, I kid you not. When I saw the songs titles, I questioned her on it, and the answer given were really detailed, but in summary every song has a story behind it. The most significant song would be the last in the album titled "Aku Bukan Dewa".
