Over the long weekend holiday, I had the pleasure of being on Ms. Deborah Moore’s radio show along with my dear friend Jo from White Roses and Coffee. During the hour-long segment, Deborah shared her recent Japan trip highlights with her viewers and talked to us about why and how we use social media.
One of the more thought provoking questions she asked me was whether or not social media has helped me. I told her I started using social media as a tool to share my interest with others not really thinking it would reap any personal benefits. Specifically, I started using Instagram to share my earlier macaron creations which now looking back really weren’t so cute. However, many good Instagram friends were there to give me encouragement with their positive comments and likes for my posts. In that way, I found that social media has actually helped me. Everyone encouraged me to keep practicing and improving on my macaronart. After many requests for a recipe, I started this blog and I appreciate all of you for reading, leaving me sweet notes and sharing your own experiences.
The interview was conducted mainly in Cantonese Chinese on Fairchild Radio so I had an opportunity to utilize my unpolished language skills that you may have already heard once in my Chinese New Years Mandarin video tutorial. Luckily, the articulately bi-lingual Ms. Moore was there to translate for me. She really impressed me with her beauty, soothing radio voice and ability to make her guests feel comfortable and at ease. Her lifestyle segment runs on AM 1470 in Greater Vancouver at 10am from Monday to Friday.
Hope you enjoy these behind the scenes photos.
Until next time.
