On 25th September 2009, a bunch of bloggers were invited by Alice George Communication (PR for AFC) to the sneak preview of another self-made original productions of the Asian Food Channel (AFC) of “Daniel Boulud : One Night in Singapore”, to be premiered on 29th September 2009..
I bet AFC (Astro Channel 703) has been the channel of the many food lovers out there..
The event was held in NEO (a lounge cum restaurant), beside Tamarind Hill at Jalan Sultan Ismail, Kuala Lumpur, just before Wisma KFC if you are following the traffic flow..
Not knowing who’s going to be there, I felt relieved when I saw few familiar faces such as Nigel, Kelli, Jess, Rachel Ooi, Ken, Rachel Ting (representing Superwilson, where they usually appear together), Taufulou, Wei Zhi, and both Chris and Christine..
Finger foods were served before the main agenda kicked off at about 6pm..

We (bloggers) were warmly greeted by Hian Goh, AFC’s Co-founder and Managing Director before the sneak preview of “Daniel Boulud : One Night in Singapore”..
Great in-sights from the Managing Director, where he shares his views and thoughts on how to expand AFC to become one of the prominent channels in Asia..
Other than Hian Goh, the variety of AFC’s programme menu can be attributed to Maria Brown, another Co-founder and Managing Director of AFC..
