Since we’re on the topic of Carlsberg, I noticed that my Facebook friend and acquaintance and one of my favourite freelance talents – Zhu Sien, did a couple of videos for Carlsberg.
I happen to think that she’s one of the prettier freelance talents in the industry and I really like the fact that she can converse fluently in English and is not one of those dumb bimbos/ empty vases. Pity that she’s graduated and is no longer doing freelance jobs. Sure miss seeing her at events. Well here are two (2) old photos of her.
