Asian Food Channel’s Amazing Food Challenge – our TV show trailer is finally released!

Our Amazing Food Challenge trailer on Asian Food Channel FB page and TV channel is out. Are you as excited to see the show as I am? If you check out the thrilling trailer, you’ll see what I mean!

The Amazing Food Challenge was commissioned by the Philippines Tourism Board, and was orchestrated by some of the most brilliant minds in scripting and production from Singaporeans, Malaysians, to Filipinos and even Americans – one of the consulting producers on this show helped with casting and producing on the hit US series ‘Survivor’, so you can only imagine the kind of magic that went into the Amazing Food Challenge! I applied for this show not even expecting to get a reply! What an honour that they ended up choosing little adventurous me, one of 10 total Challengers, out of 5000 other applicants.

Big ups to the epic excitement that they created and put us through for this incredible series. Here are some of my favourite moments from the trailer and Asian Food Channel’s first travel reality show:

New York Might Just Kick Me Out After What I Did This Morning..

Hey I was just trying to make toast!

Am really grateful for this chance to live my dream in NY, but I know other people have also wanted to visit NY too. Let me fulfil your dream for you? Tweet, FB post, or Instagram post your NYC bucketlist with hashtag #ESTELLENYDREAMS today and I’ll post some videos doing cool things for you! :) I promise I’ll be the best tourist.

(I actually posted the #EstelleNYdreams shoutouts on social media yesterday, before this accident!)

I won a global social media competition and will be flown to Social Media Week in New York!?

I can barely believe it… I made a really 15 second video for a global social media competition called #SMWreporter, and I won it!!!! I’m one of three winners from countries all over, and we will all be flying to the US for Social Media Week New York, 17-21 Feb 2014. Such an honour!!!

One of the winners is a lovely girl Hum, who I actually stalked all over social media because I absolutely loved her creative video submission. She’s completely the sort of personality that I know I will completely be in sync with. I can’t wait to meet her and she’ll be flying in from Toronto.

The third winner is Anthony, a talented and good looking chap – He speaks with swag, hosts TV shows and is part of the MTV Voices programme in the US.

The competition description was to make a simple and short video, to show why you should be picked as the winner for Social Media Week. I tried to film a few more complicated ideas and trans-media stories, but ended up filming this concept instead. I knew I could make good quality and authentic video content that would show social media in a fun way, which was probably what the company wants. (I don’t have many skills, but I know I got this pat down!) However, I was really embarrassed to show my personality at first – what if everyone thinks I look stupid (I obviously do)?! But hey, screw it. I’ve regularly attended Social Media Week in Singapore to learn more about the industry, and a trip to New York for an event that I’m passionate about is worth any risk of embarrassment.

HUGE thanks to all of you who watched and enjoyed the video, so glad that none of you laughed too hard! Ok, you probably did, but it’s fine! This is the furthest place that my blog has ever taken me, and I would have never in my wildest dreams ever thought I could come this far.

Your support on my Facebook posts, Twitter updates, Instagram stories and blogposts here have been the reason why I am still writing and getting somewhat recognition for it. Love You Wrong Time honestly wouldn’t be what it is without you guys. Shoutout to Hikaruchiou, Colin, Privefleur, Peter Squidg, Bboy rice and so many more of you guys who are always showing me love online! I’ve always been very interested in creating video content and this incredible win has given me more confidence to explore this medium. f I start making more silly videos and playing with pink feathered costumes, please know that it is completely your fault…!

EXCITING UPDATE: I will be shifting to a .com very soon and I’m really excited to show you the stunning design that my creative team and I have been working so hard on for almost a year. My own company website will be launched soon too, and I’m going to also prepare and print new namecards for the endless learning and networking I want to achieve in New York. Bring it on!

As I always say, the dream is for free – the hustle sold separately.

Thanks again to you amazing lovergirls and loverguys for believing in me and being a part of this exciting Loveyouwrongtime journey.

Valentine’s Day is tomorrow… You’ll never guess who I’m spending it with?!

CONVERSATION MAKING VDAY PLANS-

Mom: So how come you and your brother are cooking dinner together at home tomorrow?

Me: I asked him to spend it with me and if he wanted to go out and eat, but since it was expensive he said we should cook at home.

Brother: Actually, it’s embarrassing to go out on Vday and not have a girlfriend.

Mom: (laughs)

Brother: But it’s even more embarrassing to go out on Vday and have people think SHE is my girlfriend.

Never mind romance for Valentine’s Day – it’s always a riot with my ever so adoring brother.

If you’re going to be looking for love this Valentine’s Day, you might be happier finding it in something that will last. Being with family who truly love you (even if they insist they don’t), is always a good way to spend not just Valentine’s – but any other day.

Wishing all of you lovergirls lots of love from me, for tomorrow!

The TV show I filmed is finally airing soon! Amazing Food Challenge by Asian Food Channel

Hot news for my dearest friends here! Remember the TV show Amazing Food Challenge I filmed in Philippines recently? So excited to be able to officially announce that this incredible travel and food show will be aired on AFC on 11 MARCH 9PM SG time, in 12 territories across Asia (Brunei, Cambodia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mongolia, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam). Asia Food Channel is owned by Food Network in the US.

What do u expect to see from an “amazing food challenge”??:)

Article source link from On Screen Asia is HERE.

Hosted by celebrity chef Sherston Lian and featuring Philippines’ iconic Roland Laudicio, you can’t even begin to imagine the kind of crazy stuff they gave us to do on this show. We can’t reveal too much about the first episode yet but do catch the debut of Amazing Food Challenge on 11 March 9pm (Singapore Time) on Asian Food Channel, and I’ll post some blogposts in the coming weeks about the behind the scenes stuff too. Looking forward to sharing this incredible on-screen adventure with you!

In China, internet addicts get sent to prison. How do I know if I’m addicted to the internet?

The internet can be a hero for quick research and keeping in touch with friends, but in other ways, it is like electronic heroin.

My Mom actually thinks I’m an internet addict because I’m always on all my social media platforms, interacting, reading, researching, watching, learning, emailing, blogging and all sorts of things, day in and day out. Living my life while putting it online sort of goes hand in hand for me. Some days I head out of the house to run errands, have meetings, play sports and such, so I really don’t think I’m such a basket case right?!

The most addictive part of the internet is, I think, YouTube and gaming. One YouTube video can turn into 5 hours of your night. Games on the Playstation/xBox or computer like Sims city can consume lives and spit it back out.

I think some people use the internet way more than others, and there’s nothing wrong or right with individual lifestyle choices. Help should only be called if you’re eating fast food and wearing diapers so that you can sit in front of the computer non-stop for 3 days.

Dramatic situations call for dramatic solutions.

But do you think this approach is evil?

(Mom and Dad, I don’t think I’m an addict, please don’t send me here!)
