Listen to this show
Hey, I did not expect this to be a multi-part story. However, an inspiration to finally write a parody (of sorts) of my favourite TV dramas struck me. I have been freewriting this story, based on melodramatic TV dramas that I had seen in the past. It will have its melodramatic moments, don't worry, I never said this was a comedy series after all. It will, however, have its moments of me trying to make jokes. I hope you enjoy tonight's broadcast and I will leave further details in this blog later on.
NOTE: There was a major technical difficulty regarding this broadcast last week, I was planning to broadcast it next week but as I tried to redraft it, I thought it better just to scrap it and start anew.

What Is "Crying In My Tea"?
"Crying In My Tea" is a series of weekly short radio plays, written and performed by me, your hostess, Sarah Clarke. This is my first time doing radio and radio dramas, I did this in hopes of putting my scriptwriting abilities to good use. To anyone whom I've told about my performance, I certainly hope that you won't be disappointed. This is my first broadcast on CamFM and I hope that I don't disappoint any of you new listeners and I hope I can bring something interesting to the table. These stories may not be particularly cheerful or have pleasant endings, but I certainly hope they aren't boring.
Why is it called "Crying In My Tea"?
The inspiration for this show came from the days when my mother would spend hours upon hours watching Asian dramas. Say it was a South Korean drama, the rest of my family would jokingly call the show "Crying In My Kimchi". I am not South Korean myself, I am half British and half Hong Kong Chinese. I felt that tea (be it jasmine or English breakfast, whichever you prefer) was a much more suitable thing to cry when watching melodramatic and tragic stories. If you would much rather cry on something else and drink your own salty tears, then I am in no position to stop you.
A synopsis of tonight's broadcast:
Angela is now 21 years old and wandering the mountains alone with the undead that lurk there trudging behind her every step of the way. Tonight's story is the tale of how she came to life such a solitary and stoic existence. I do warn anyone who might be listening in that this is not going to be a particularly happy story, nor does it have a happy ending. She has lost many people in her life, and asks the question of whether or not tyranny is truly much more frightening than the tigers or the undead?
I hope you enjoy tonight's broadcast listeners!
