Bloggers’ interview with The Doddle Blog

She blogs, not with text, but with her doodles and they won her the Best Hidden Gem category given out at the recent Nuffnang Asia Pacific Bloggers Awards.

Social PR chats with Yih Chien of to find out more about her and her blog.

Who are you? Ie what is your blog name and your real name. Why did you come up with the blog title?

My name is Yih Chien. And I am mastermind behind The Doodle Blog. The name of the blog is the best to describe the content of my blog. That's why I picked the name. =)

What are you? In ten (or so) words, you would describe your blog as: …

Funny and relaxing.

Why do we need you? Why is your blog different? What makes it stand out from the crowd? Why is it special?

I think every blog is unique. However, my standout point would be my doodles. I use to doodling to convey my feelings instead of words. It's easy to understand and it doesn't take a lot of time for the rest to understand my message.

Editorial Deadline? Ie when should PRs NOT call?

I am pretty much available on the internet most of the time.

Features list? Do you have one, and if so, where can we get it, and can PRs still pitch to you ideas that aren’t on the list?


Perfect story? First, what kind of stories does your blog run? Second, what kind of PR-generated or PR-related stories have a chance of getting a run in your blog?

My blog mainly talks about bits and pieces of my life. I would be more interested in tech products or travelling services.

Contact? What’s the best way for PR to contact you, email or phone best?

Email would be the best as I do not attend to my phone all the time.

What kind of stories make a great blog post?

Funny and easy to understand

If your blog was an animal, it would be a …?

A dolphin.

Do you do lunch/dinner/junkets? Why or why not?

Sometimes. When I want to save money!

Complete this sentence: You wish that PR would…

Contact me and sign me up for a contract. So that I could save some money for the future! Or perhaps sponsor some of my traveling trips!

What stories will your blog be watching closely this year?

No particular ones.

If you were a great novel, you would be…

I would rather be a painter! :D

Why is Ramly Burger banned in Singapore?

Yahoo Singapore ran an article of the Ramly Burger by highlighting that it is ban in Singapore.

Yet, the writer from Makansutra failed to address the most important issue of why the Ramly meat patty is banned in Singapore.

A search online easily did highlight that the famous Malaysian meat patty is banned by the AVA but didn't go into details.

Wrote Arlina Arshad for The Straits Times in January 2004,

"But the importing of beef and beef products from Malaysia is not permitted, said theAgri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA).

Selling and supplying them without a permit is also an offence, and offenders can befined as much as $50,000 or jailed two years, or both, said the AVA."

In May of the same year, another article highlighted that a man was even charged in court for "smuggling" the Ramly burger in 2004.

"The AVA said that meat products processed in Malaysian food factories which it had notapproved were banned here.Suzali was yesterday jailed for four month…

Those Who Gamble Online Have Poorest Control - NCG Survey In 2012

Singapore will soon exempt local operators, Singapore Pools and Turf Club, from online gambling ban and the sites will be ready in November 2016.

Ministry of Home Affairs explained that a complete ban on remote gambling drives demand and activities underground, and may create larger incentives for criminal syndicates to target Singapore."

Yet in a 2012 survey by the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCG) found that those who gamble online have the poorest control.

For those who indulged in online gambling, 30.4% said they gambled for a longer period than they planned to, 33.3% gambled with more money than they planned and 29.2% gambled more frequently they planned to. 
Will launching the online gambling sites be like opening a Pandora Box that will create more issues in the future?

A Very Small Chicken Or An Oversized Popcorn Chicken?

Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) Singapore Facebook Page recently received a complaint of the size of the chicken being served at KFC.

Barnabas Ng took a photo of his chicken from KFC which showed it to be almost the size of the KFC small container. It also looked like a an oversize popcorn chicken.

Wrote Barnabas,

"Hi KFC, is this your new standard size for a chicken? I order 3 piece meal and 2 pieces including this so called original recipe chicken is smaller than the size of the cap of ur small mash potato.

Have you guys try to cut cost so much that you are offering half a size chicken pieces for a full price meal? It is just getting from bad to worse"

KFC Singapore did reply to Barnabas for him to PM his mobile number but Barnabas has yet to receive any calls from KFC Singapore, as of this posting.

Maybe chickens are also shrinking with the current climate change?
