VLOG#1 I Made a VLOG!
The latest highlight and challenge of my video-making journey was realised a couple of weeks ago, when I decided one day to make a VLOG! It was not planned at all, but I was super lucky to have had quite an eventful day so it wasn’t (too) boring.
Watch on Youku (China)
Watch on Youtube
So the premise of the vlog was the Feast food festival that was happening a few blocks away from where I live — A food festival where many chefs from famous restaurants in Shanghai congregate at put up stalls. We’re talking about Michelin-starred restaurants putting up a stall here and letting people sample their food for a fraction of the usual cost.
Some highlights other than eating all that great food, was having a chat with Chef Sean Jorgensen, who had just taken over the reigns at one of the newest and most prolific restaurant in Shanghai at the moment, Highline, co-owned by John Liu.
Also, I had a segment with multiple Michelin-starred Chef Stefan Stiller and Jimmy Lee, owner of the coolest coffee shop in Shanghai.
Anyway, have a watch, let me know what you think. It was my first time doing such a program, and I was super nervous doing it, worrying about saying the wrong thing, and worrying about my terrible speech/accent.
Many thanks to my pals Rachel Gouk from CityWeekend and Yannick from Shanghaiist for assisting me in various tasks on the day!
