About us – PlacesAndFoods.com:
Welcome and thank you for supporting PlacesAndFoods.com. PlacesAndFoods.com is a travel and food website. We (Wilson Ng & Rachel Ting) enjoy sharing our passion as we travel locally and also internationally. We enjoy exploring new places and also seeing new things as we travel.
We work with tourism Boards such as Tourism Authority of Thailand, Tourism Philippines, Macau Government Tourist Office, Tourism Victoria, Tourism Tasmania, Tourism Australia, Tourism Malaysia, Tourism Malaysia Perlis, Tourism South Australia, Destination New South Wales and Singapore Tourism Board to promote their destinations as well as their hotels and resorts.
When we work with tourism boards, our goal is to deliver results in terms of stories and reach in both in our website and on our social media. Thus, we also keep in touch with most tourism organisations for future co-operation, engagement and promotions. For the past few years, we travel to more than a dozen media trips with various tourism boards. We also offer media reports (if requested for special tourism projects) for our sponsors, advertisers and clients.
For branding, we are the digital evangelist for Samsung Malaysia for their camera and mobile since 2013. For the whole campaign, we use our sponsored Samsung camera products to snap pictures for our blog and social media. Thus, we are also assigned to promote some of their mobile phones such as Samsung Galaxy S4 and S5. We also worked with Malaysia Airlines, Agoda.com, WD Malaysia, AirAsia, AirAsiaX and many more.
Recently, we welcomed our baby boy into our family. With the new addition, we are no longer as flexible as we used to be. However, you can always contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com for enquiries.
Engagements are very important in blogs and social media. In case you are wondering, why comments numbers are so low because my readers interact more on my Facebook Page. Instead of having the same group of bloggers commenting on our stories, we focus on real readers commenting on our Facebook Page with links to our story. You can see real time engagement which includes number of likes, comments and number of shares.
Features and Contributions:
We also featured and contributed to a few magazines. Below is some of our stories in various magazines. In the past we contributed stories to Oxygen Lifestyle magazine, Gaya Travel Magazine, Santai Travel Magazine, The Travelist, Leisure Travel magazine, Malay Mail newspaper and AirAsia’s TravelThreeSixty Magazine.
Some of our travel pictures were featured in newspaper like Sin Chew Chinese Newspaper and The Sun newspaper.
