Food & Socialikes Connect (FSCSG) (Invite) – of Food, Social Media & Ethics

Food is hot in Singapore, and it’s getting social.

The inaugural Food & Socialikes Connect (FSCSG) was held at Lime House over a week ago, and saw some 50 food bloggers, Instagrammers and blogger-come-Instagrammers tuning on some of the things that FSCSG’s panel of F&B professionals and insiders had to say about the local F&B and blogging scene.

It’s funny how most of us are kind of “competing” against each other for a share of voice in this hyper saturated field, yet our blogs and social media profiles also complement each other in terms of how we cover different areas in food. That said, it was great to finally see some of my favourite food bloggers in person and bask in their reflected glory-I mean, spend a fruitful day getting their insights and strategies on how to be a better blogger.

Oh, and there was also a friendly mobile photography competition after photographer Alex Ortega shared tips on how to take great pictures without a DSLR. No pressure. 😉
