Body Positivity #bodytalk on RTHK Radio 3 #2 – Marina Bay

Hi Everyone! Welcome to Curves in Asia #Bodytalk series Episode 2 – Today our guest is Marina Bay, the founder and CEO of Befast tv – a tech start up multimedia website and also a friend of mine. Our guest for this episode is different from the rest of the guests I have on my list because Marina has never been exposed to the subject of Body Positivity, so she’s a great example of how people receive the subject. From Marina’s story, it could be something worth studying for us to see from the other side and feel the perspective. To describe Marina If I were to describe Marina, I would say that she is a brave individual who is doing something different and unique in a men’s world. Marina has a start up that covers mostly tech events and has to constantly interview founders and CEO of tech companies. The tech world which is dominated by men, where women only hold 26 percent of all jobs in the industry, is a scary place to enter. The entry barrier is also difficult if you have no knowledge in the field, so, to be in the game as a woman founder, she

Halloween Outfits Rant – About Slutshaming

So! Halloween is coming again, and every year I’d tell myself the same thing according to below timeline, Late September “Nah, I am not doing it this year” (The truth is I don’t know if I have friends to go out with to do it) Early Oct “Mmm, what do I want to be this year? I will think of something brilliant *Grin* ” (I don’t care, I want to go out and play) Mid Oct “Ooh I really want to be Enid in Ghost world, but I need to go on Etsy to get the Raptor T-shirt first!” (Excuse, also a legit want and need) Enid is my favorite character and Ghost world is my favorite movie.                         3 days before Halloween “I’d just find whatever in my wardrobe and put them together! Let’s party!” ( I don’t want to die alone) You will soon see what lead to the outfits of my past years below, but first! Let me rant a little bit 😀 So since I don’t know what I want to be this year, I have reviewed all the outfits of the past I can find,

Body Positivity #bodytalk on RTHK Radio 3 #1

Hi all! The 1st episode of Curves in Asia Body talk was on air on Friday 15th Oct, 2016. It is an absolute honour for me to be with RTHK 3 to talk about body positivity, a topic Hong Kong has rarely tapped into! Our first guest of the show is Michelle Elman of Mindset for Life Ltd. About Michelle Michelle is a remarkable strong woman. She has experienced 15 surgeries since she was born; not only she had to go through having serious sickness since a young age, she also has to learn to live with the scars that came with the unfortunate events in her life.

Nowadays Michelle shares her story to the world aiming to inspire people to love the body they are in. She has also set up her company Mindset for Life Ltd. as a body confidence coach so she can help people that are struggling with body image, to rebuild their confidence again.

Hong Kong First Body Positivity talk at RTHK Radio 3

Hi Everyone! It’s been a while since I have written a post! So, I’d like to give you an update on what I have been doing in the past few months; apart from a well deserved holiday in Italy (<– check out my photos on Instagram!) I have also done a couple of interviews on the media about Curvasian and also the Curves In Asia project, which you can see at the PRESS page on my blog. In August, I was invited to the 123 show with Noreen Mir at RTHK Radio 3 in Hong Kong, to talk about my own experience and how I came to being a voice for body positivity in Asia; I had a pleasant time chatting with her during the interview, which leads to a very exciting opportunity for me in this coming 2 months 🙂 I am happy to tell y’all that I have landed a radio show co-hosting with Noreen for a series of Body positivity talk! There will be 6 episodes in this series, and on each one, Noreen and I will have a chat with a special guest about body images, girl power and how the guest life journey leads them to their own career choices. I will announce each guest’s name with

Plus size fashion promotes obesity? The fact is they are not related.

In the adult world, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and obviously you cannot change other peoples mind in a day or that telling you what i think is “better” than what you think will ever work, and it goes both ways. Afterall, my blog is about my passion for fashion and also to help women gain their confidence from within. They can co-exist but also are independent topics of one’s insterest. Body Diversity   There are always much noise angling on body images and related campaigns simply because we focus so much on visual stimulants nowadays. While I understand hearing different voices can help improve a society or culture, I also feel that many are only just using the exposure to promote their own ideas by bashing on others. I am definitely not trying to wow anybody with explicit images or very outspoken languages to creat that XYZ factor for it to go viral, which is very much the case in the gigantic internet atmosphere.   Source: I chant on my own ideas of course, otherwise I wouldn’t blog, by writing things I have feelings towards and sharing my opinions, it’s a way to express myself.
