[Hosting] Dancing Crab's Crawfish Boil

Happy 2nd Anniversary to Dancing Crab!  Having been around since its conceptualization and infancy and seeing it grow to multiple outlets not just in Singapore, but across the globe (Japan, Indonesia, Australia).  It was my absolute pleasure to host Singapore's first Crawfish Boil, and especially the Crawfish eating contest.  I think eating contests might just be my favorite kind of event to host.  T-shirts, messiness, food, and chaos.  Love it.

Hosting this year's Bacardi Legacy Singapore 2016 Finals


A beautiful moment captured by photographer Adam Tun-Aung.
Upon giving her speech, Bannie Kang (Anti:Dote) called her mother up to tell her about her win at the Legacy Singapore Finals.

Thank you for inviting me to host this year's Bacardi Legacy Singapore 2016 Finals!  It's always a pleasure to host or attend these increasingly visible cocktail competitions around the world.  I find it heartwarming to see the camaraderie within the industry, and to see familiar faces again and again, always supporting one another, no matter who the host-brand is.  Today, the Singapore Finals were held at Ce La Vi under the strong 2pm Singapore sunshine.  The judges and finalists were dressed to the nines, carrying their dapper suits with grace despite the heat.






A big congratulations to all the finalists!  They all did spectacularly. Today established who will represent Singapore in the Bacardi Legacy Global Cocktail Competition in San Francisco next month. This is Singapore's 2nd year entry in the global competition.

Finalists:
Adonis Endozo Reyes from Bread Street Kitchen
Bannie Kang from Anti:Dote [WINNER]
Satoshi Iwai from Orgo [RUNNER UP]
Sin Kim Shin from Jigger & Pony
Stuart Danker from Sugarhall

Over the course of 3 months, these 5 amazing guys and gal have been driving awareness and buzz around their cocktail. They have just been judged on their cocktail promotion plan which includes inclusion on cocktail menus, pop-up events, training, social network promotions, etc.

Each Finalist had 2 minutes to set up and 7 minutes to present their Bacardi Legacy Cocktails.

Today's judges:

Sri Lankan Filming Adventure

5 days of grueling travel, filming on rickety trains, windy cliffside roads, hiking up mountains with a 35-man film crew.... Ah Sri Lanka.


A video posted by the chubby ninja (@victoriacheng) on





Traveling with Keenan Pearce (Indonesia) and Kaka Azraff (Malaysia)


5am call times daily are brutal, but then you arrive on set to this. Worth it? Worth it.


With our director, Guilad Kahn.


...and the weather today is...








One of Sri Lanka's oldest golf clubs, and one of the world's oldest golf clubs.

[Press] Shiseido Professional

For the archives...

Thank you Shiseido Professional for nominating me to try this new shade of red. Chinese New Year festive colors campaign by Shiseido Professional Singapore. Featured in FEMALE magazine, Nu You magazine, and HerWorld (January 2016)

Happy Year of the Monkey!  It's a funny experience, how something as simple as changing your hair color changes how you are perceived. It's an instant form of self-expression. I love that, especially because it's so transient and unpredictable. In that moment of red, you're unconventional, untameable, a mistress of her fate.

[Blog] Another Day on Set with Büro24/7



Today is another photo shoot and video shoot day! After trying out a new range of skincare products by Cle de Peau Beaute, I'm at Büro 24/7 Singapore's pop-up store to discuss my skincare routine and quirks (For example, "What's the most extreme thing you've done in the name of beauty?" they asked). I may be known for the food/drink/travel category, but I'm grateful I have the opportunity to eventually work with brands in other things that I love as well: beauty, fitness, sport, health.

A friend of mine wants to do all the things she loves too, but doesn't understand where to start. She's musically gifted, and I suggested that she focus on her music first, instead of spreading herself thin and trying to conquer everything at once. Let the world see the dedication to her craft. It's important to take one step at a time, to work hard and be patient. Sometimes trying to do everything all at once ends up paralysing you instead of moving you forward.

Dare to Dream


The world seems to get more and more cynical.  People are afraid to even entertain the notion of extraordinary, to think wildly, to be original.  I, too, began to fall into this self-imposed limitation for a while.  But no more.

We all have resolutions and often times we keep them to mundane ordinary goals, but this 2016 you and I should dream big. Dare to dream the implausible, what seems impossible.

If you could do anything in this universe, what would you do? What would you want?  Who would you be? 

Spend a little time everyday thinking big. 

There's no cost for using your imagination... Use it and you might surprise yourself what you end up stumbling upon. It could be discovering something about yourself, or something you're meant to do.
