Love Bonito Soft Launch

Months ago, i got an email from April from Singaporean brand Love Bonito wondering if KinkyBlueFairy was up to pitch for a PR campaign, as they were expanding to Malaysia.

At first i wasn’t sure if i wanted to take on the job, cos i don’t even have enough manpower and i don’t even like writing press releases anymore (everything else i still like haha), and i told myself i’m not gonna do something i don’t enjoy when i have so many other things on my plate. After pondering on how to solve it, i decided that WHY NOT i outsource the work for what i don’t have time nor want to do – and that’s how i ended up working with Rengee :) I’ve known her since her PR days for Heineken, then she went to AirAsia, and just left to do her own thing, and i love her, so it was perfect.

Last week was our first little soft launch for Love Bonito, who just opened a pop up store on the Ground Floor of Publika, inside the middle of the mall (next to Shoes x3).

It was a small event for around 30 selected media, bloggers and personalities; so the Love Bonito team could meet some KL-ites, before the main launch party happening in mid-October!

Soraya is the cutest thing! I just want to play some more with her!
Aishah told her that i’m a fairy, and i looked at Soraya straight in the eye and said, “Yes i am!” and grinned.
She shyly smiled and asked, “Where are your wings?”
I said, “They’re on my back! They come out at night,” and i turned round as if to check them.

Aishah later told me that she asked, “Mummy mummy, get her to show me her wings!”

One day Soraya, one day XD
