This page will briefly cover some of the press I’d been featured in. The purpose of setting up this “press” page is to communicate that I don’t bite. I love writing and am open to interesting collaborations, so feel free to drop me an email at email@example.com anytime.
However, I am irritated by people who ask me to work for free. So don’t.
In 2015, Singapore celebrated its 50th year of independence. Then, I have had the huge honour of curating a special Singapore50 (SG50) coffee-table book for Singaporean couples, which was sold out at a private launch.
#throwback #friday! Never say never, and never put a limit to all your abilities no matter where you are in life! #naysayers can say all they want because they are nothing and have nothing. 💋At any rate, I can't believe we took this insane but rewarding journey. SOLD OUT on first publication!! –So proud of you @shenwendys !!! Check shenwendys.sg for more details😉 #shenwendys #wendysanauthor #soldout #neversaynever #dreamscometrue #positivity #friends #bff #bae #sisterhood
I’d also been invited to share my experiences at the DermaGoldTribune, the media arm of the luxury home-grown skincare brand Dermagold.
Well I do have a huge heart for students, and therefore when I was invited for a sharing session at River Valley High School, I said “yes”!
Had so much fun talking and sharing my business experiences with this group of young adults today–the future elite leaders of tomorrow!! They are only 16, and born in 2000 omg madness. O.o WW is truly growing old. A huge thank you to #rivervalleyhighschool for extending the invitation to me today lol 😀 #youngpeople #youthsg
Yet the greatest endorsement any writer can get is when distinguished people share her post.
So, when Mdm. Ho Ching shared a post I wrote, I was really humbled! The post eventually received 21,000 shares on facebook alone.
[Japan] I’d used to be rather heavily involved in the organization/ PR/ execution of the「東北親善大使答礼訪問プログラム」/ Singapore-Tohoku Japan ambassadorship programme in the years 2011, 2012 and 2016.
With one of the most popular actor in Singapore, Mr. Pierre Png OMG. ~
I always feel grateful that in this digital age, maintaining close ties with the folks at Japan Airlines and the Japanese embassy in Singapore is made easy no matter where one is.
What a huge honour to be invited to the reception by the Japan embassy today, and seeing fellow youth ambassadors again! (: post 3-11, five years on, we are once again reminded of the deep friendship and diplomatic ties between Japan and Singapore. It had been really humbling to hear from the brave #SAF and #redcross folks over dinner, about their relief activities in #rikuzentakata, #fukushima and #Tohoku. We also observed one-minute of silence and prayer for the victims of #311. I have the deepest respect for the Japanese society and the strong show of solidarity when natural disasters like this happen. #gambarou #prayforjapan #日本大好き #決して忘れない #sj50 #絆 #faith #hope #love
With the key leaders of the Tohoku Ambassador Programme 2012 and Japanese ambassador Takahashi-san:
Keep in touch and do remember to keep me in the loop whenever I’m back in Singapore!
As you all already know, Finland is a place that is close to heart. This blog The Hieno! is the official partner of the Finland 100 independence programme:What is “Finnish-ness”? led by the Prime Minister’s Office.
And this was why I was overjoyed when I received the official endorsement from the Prime Minister’s Office in Finland regarding this interview series with 35 interesting thought-leaders.
Here’s a photograph with the Finnish ambassador in Singapore, Paula, when she invited me over for coffee at the embassy. I was shy so I got Kris to come with me too LOL.😀
The Hieno! was also featured online and in print with Helsingin Sanomat, the Finnish national broadsheet with 11.6million monthly online views.
At any rate I’d previously worked as a guest blogger for the Korean Tourism Board (yes, they sponsored one trip for my friend and I), and was sponsored too on a trip to Hong Kong where I met the most awesome Japanese beauty entrepreneur of @cosme.net, Meyumi Yamada:
Ah those were happy times. =) I was fangirling a lot though!🙂
