I’m quite excited about this little piece of exposure I received yesterday, which was both nerve-racking as well being terribly exciting. I just wanted to share because this might just be the first and only time I get to be on international TV! So please excuse the narcissism. I promise this will be short.
But yes, I and my little blog were featured in a news segment on NHK World – the international broadcasting arm of NHK, Japan’s broadcasting service, and I was told that it aired internationally on Friday July 26, 2013 at about 8pm Malaysian Time (+8GMT)! The downer of course, is that I have no access to this channel LOL! I have come across it on satellite TV when I stay in hotels, so I knew it existed but domestically, I have no access.
So knowing it was available online was another bonus! 😛 Basically, I was contacted on Friday morning by Ms. Noriko of NHK World, to seek my comments on the Kanebo whitening product recall. You may remember I posted about the Kanebo product discontinuation a week or two back. It started with a report of 39 cases but based on the NHK World news report, this number is now about 7000 which took me by surprise. I haven’t seen many reports about it from anywhere and during our interview, I was told there was a reported case in Taiwan as well. I was very surprised when I was asked to comment on it because I’m no authority now, am I? I’m just a blogger blogging about beauty! 😛
