Confessions of a Foodie PR Girl

Being part of Publicist PR has allowed me to be able to do what I love – meet new people and eat. Why eat you may ask? Since the day I stepped into Publicist PR, I was assigned the lifestyle – food accounts, hence being able to eat.

I was given access to and alliances with chefs, restaurateurs, food photographers, food influencers and food organizations to solidify meaningful consumer and trade media coverage—in both traditional and social media outlets through hosting.

In order for me to be a good host, I needed to research on the finer points of dining as well as wine pairing.  Fortunately, as a foodie, this comes quite naturally for me.

Apart from getting to sample great cuisine, the best part about being a lifestyle publicist is to be able to meet new friends including celebrities. I have enjoyed working with the clients and appreciate the labor of love for chefs to prepare a great meal.

Meeting the stars for a tasting session definitely leaves you star struck! I had to keep a straight face and professional demeanor despite being fan-girl of Rosalyn Lee (Rozz), Stephanie Carrington and Liv Lo!  My tip for PR enthusiasts is to always smile and be prepared with list of talking points before introducing the chef. That pretty much leaves you star-stuck yet still doing your job without fumbling over.  

I have also managed to meet up with other amazing people such as William from Only William, The Influencer Media, The Smart Local, Simply Mommie, Accidental Mum Blogger, Honeycombers, Thumbs For Food and Be Wicked! Magazine.

More Photos of Bimba Y Lola Cocktail Event

Hope the week's going well for everyone! Here are more pictures of the cocktail event for Bimba Y Lola at Marina Bay Sands.

BeautyBiotics Intelligent Skincare Day

My experience organizing the BeautyBiotics Event

As part of my internship experience with Publicist PR, I was tasked to assist in the management of a press launch for BeautyBiotics. I learnt the finer points of event décor, curation of F&B as well as venue selection to create a tasteful memorable event for the press.

Event Venue

 

The theme of the event was BeautyBiotic’s Intelligent Skincare day, and we had chosen to have a color theme of white and beige, to reflect the dermatological image of BeautyBiotics products. So we wanted to source for a venue that would be refreshing and elegant, somewhere that would have a lot of beautiful sunlight since the event was to be held in the morning.

The event venue also needed to be spacious to accommodate our celebrity makeup artist Clarence Lee’s demonstration, as well as for a video crew to be roaming around.

After spending quite a lot of time looking at restaurants, hotels and café’s, we decided to hold the event at Ion Sky. Ion Sky turned out to be the perfect venue for the event since it had the color scheme, elegance and space that we were looking for.

Decoration and Furniture

 

However, one of the challenges I faced was having to fill up the space with furniture and event decoration that would best fit the theme, and which would still be within budget. After calling up various vendors, I was happy to have been able to find a suitable vendor for loaning furniture, the sound system, the decoration and the catering.

Through working with these vendors I was able to learn about the importance of negotiation. To know how to make quick optimal decisions when options where given, and to push for a win-win outcome.

Client Servicing

Throughout the event organization, one of the most essential skills I picked up was that of client servicing. Clear communication between the agency and the client on all levels and on all decisions made, was crucial for the event to be successful, because the event was going to represent them after all. After some initial coordination issues, the agency and our client with BeautyBiotics was fortunately able to design a method of updates and communication that was most efficient for all of us.

Bimba Y Lola - A Cocktail Event @ The Shoppes at Marina Bay

It was a pleasant evening working with Bimba Y Lola to organise a nifty cocktail event at The Shoppes at Marina Bay and launch its Spring/Summer Collection 14.

Showcasing the ocean-themed jewelry and its line of fresh new geometric patterns and bright colours, the event also saw Chiti Garcia (Marketing Director of Bimba Y Lola) sharing with a captive audience about the fashion inspiration behind Bimba Y Lola S/S 14 collection.

AUDIO PERFECTION, HI-QUALITY PERFORMANCE – TAD EVOLUTION SERIES

Singapore – March 5th 2014 – Technical Audio Devices Laboratories, inc (TADL) launched its Evolution Series TAD-D1000 disc player and TAD-DA1000 D/A converter as well as a new model to its luxury speaker line up, marking the highly anticipated completion of TAD’s Evolution series systems.Both TAD-D1000 Disc Player and TAD-DA1000 D/A Converter support the latest digital audio technologies and faithfully reproduce sound sources to the absolute limits. According to Mr Han, speaker of the TAD showcase, the range of 384 kHz (closest to the master tape of an audio record at a studio) which available online - originating mostly from music stores based in Europe like HDtracks, Channel Classics and 2L could be played with extreme accuracy. In comparison to master files, typical records like CDs are usually eight times lower than the original – about 44 kHz. Regardless, the sounds produced resonated quality assurance.  Check them out here!Signals of this highly evolved DAC (Digital Analogue Converter) could be further stepped up using a Preamplifier. Along with the inclusion of a Pioneer pickup boasting high reliability and reading precision, the use of a brushless spindle motor results in quiet operation and long life. For those who wish to enjoy music from their high-resolution sound sources saved to PC, this set offers a new way to enjoy high-end audio. What is a sound file without a great loudspeaker par excellence. Developed and designed entirely in-house by Director of Engineering Andrew Jones, the TAD-E1 mechanically and acoustically isolates the filter to ensure maximum resolution. As the first-ever loudspeaker in this category, the TAD-E1 is the next step in TAD’s high-performance “function meets form” Evolution series, consisting of the C2000 Preamplifier and the M2500 and M4300 Power Amplifiers. I personally experienced various musical genres at their best, most real as if I was teleported to an orchestra or a rock gig party. Music had never been so alive.The TAD-D1000 disc player, TAD-DA1000 D/A converter and TAD-E1 speaker will be available in Singapore starting in February 2014 at Reference Audio (The Adelphi, Level 4) at a suggested retail price of SGD $25,000; $19,000 and $42,000 (pair) respectively.
