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…

Did She Run Or Did She "Just Fake It" For Adidas?

Andrea Chong, a Adidas appointed influencer, posted a photo of herself in the middle of the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon 2015 and captioned how she was "all smiles" during the run.

Unfortunately for Andrea or the PR agency, one of her readers checked her bib number #75148  at the Marathon's website only to find it to belonging to somebody else.

That somebody else is Kuvin Kuar, a intern at Edelman PR and the bib number had a status "DNF" or did not finished.

This raised the first red flag as one of the rules stated that "A Participants is strictly not allowed to transfer his or her race entry to another party".

This cascaded into perceptions that Andrea herself did not even start or complete the race and was only "planted" by Adidas or the PR agency, Edelman PR, to look pretty in the marathon.

Marketing Magazine noted that Adidas declined to comment about the incident which lead to further speculation that Andrea was possibly just …

Kudos To Huawei 2 Year Warranty For P9 Series

When it comes to smartphones, I think I am jinxed.

For my history of owning smartphones, every time it comes close to the end of the two year contract with my mobile service provider. This time round, it happened to my Huawei P9.

All of a sudden, the LCD screen sort of decolourised. I thought it was a temporary issue but the decolourisation lasted for a few hours. Then the nightmare began.

The touchscreen couldn't be touched. This made it the smartphone a brick.

I thought the Huawei P9 only had one year of warrant. With my contract ending in mid-year, I thought I would have to wait it out till the contract ended and allowed me to buy a new phone under a contract.

So I decided to go to the Huawei service center, right smack in the center of the city, to see if my phone is under warranty and if Huawei would honour their 2 year warranty.

Thankfully, Huawei isn't as popular as the Samsungs or Apples, and the …
