I was invited as the “dating expert” by Channel NewsAsia (the premier news channel in the region) and their online presence, BlogTV, to be on a panel on live TV. The topic was the Singapore government’s recent call for proposals to increase dating among Singapore singles, which is part of their broader dating campaign and attempt to raise marriage and birth rates among the higher socio-economic status (SES) groups in the country.
It was a lot of fun, and the extra adrenaline rush from doing a LIVE TV show was exciting. The hosts were excellent at keeping everyone engaged, and the producers were very professional. The set was also huge, much bigger than it looks on the screen, as it was housed in a cavernous warehouse. The show aired from 8:15-9:15PM on BlogTV, and Channel NewsAsia picked it up from 8:30-9PM live on prime time television.
