Hi, i’m Joyce Wong aka KinkyBlueFairy, and i started this blog in February 2004 because i’ve always had the writing bug. I’m a Connector and Creator, and running this blog for the past 11 years has allowed me to share all the experiences and people who have inspired and enriched me. In 2011, i was named one of five finalists for Best Lifestyle Blog at the Asia Pacific NAPBAS Awards.
KinkyBlueFairy has evolved from a personal blog into a boutique creative agency specializing in online campaigns, PR, events, and an e-commerce platform (selling fashion + fun + festival accessories on www.KinkyBlueFairy.com).
Our office is based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; and we cater to clients from all over the world.
The #KinkyBlueFairyTeam currently consists of Faridah aka Baby (my manager and Little Dragon), Andrew Xuan (designer and photo editor), Sarah Chan (PR), dedicated freelancers/retainers (photography, video, PR, design, writing, programming) and interns (we call them our Little Stars).

In the past, I threw indie rock party nights called Cat Got Your Tongue with radio announcer Rudy. Previous parties took place in Heritage Mansion, Palate Palette, and Barsonic, Zouk. You can join our Facebook group here.
Sarah and i DJ-ed under the name SalahWrong, derived from the combination of our names – Sarah Chan + Joyce Wong = Salah Chan + Joyce Wrong = SalahWrong. Our past gigs have included Cloth & Clef, Palate Palette, Barsonic, Lava Lava (Johor), MNEP for a Heineken event, and the Hanger SS11 party. We were named Song Selektors 2009 by Juice Magazine. I’m pretty sure they made the award up cos they love us so much 😀

In February 2010; Chelle Pong, Jacinta Cheng and i formed Leftblock – a company aimed at alternative fashion projects. We organised a fashion show for Nike Sportswear SS10, played music at fashion parties, organized two annual fashion flea markets, and designed two collections.
I was in media for five years with the exception of spending a year in between working in Brand Development. During my earlier years in media, i wrote primarily on lifestyle issues (food, party, travel, fashion) for publications like The Star, Malay Mail, New Man, Faces, KLue, Junk, Tattle, Vida!, Expatriate Lifestyle,The Expat, etc
In February 2008, i joined Freeform Sdn. Bhd. to founded a regional fashion blog called Tongue In Chic. Throughout my role as Managing Editor, it was fantastic to see the fashion community grow closer with contributions from fashion bloggers in KL, Singapore, Philippines, HK and Indonesia. Am also appreciative of being interviewed by BFM 89.9 and Unseen.TV (watch vidoe here). In October 2009, i decided to leave my full-time position.
In August 2011, i joined Universal McCann with the designation Lead Storyteller. My father asked what sort of job i was doing when he heard that one. I was a Social Media Strategist and work on Digital Advertising. My contract for UM ended in August 2013.
In October 2013, i moved into my own office with a small team. We work on content for the KinkyBlueFairy blog, an e-commerce store selling fun and colourful lifestyle products, dabble in some PR and event services, supply party accessories and deco to events and festivals, and basically anything that tickles our creative fancy.
I strive growth and exploration, spiritually and mentally. My hobbies are obviously traveling, fashion and food. I think i’ve spent a huge chunk of whatever i’ve earned on traveling alone, and i hope my thirst for seeing the world never ends! I took a year off working in 2010, and used that year just to travel (okay admittedly i freelanced too). Never regretted it, and just makes me crave for more.
In the soon-to-be future, i WILL own a beautiful guesthouse by the beach or in the forest. Can you imagine?! I’ll decorate the rooms in crazy ways, entertain guests with my stories and dancing, cook, contribute to the education of little and big ones around me, and breathe fresh air every day.
I would also like a horse,
two giraffes, two dolphins (but they should run free…), a cruise ship that can sleep lots of friends and a team to run it, and oh, my own theme park. Or a festival that never stops. I could call it Forever Fairy Festival.
