Here's what people who have worked with me have to say. 

"I had a chance to work with Ms Apple Mandy at The Peak Magazine in

Hong Kong when it was still part of the South China Morning Post stable of publications. As assistant editor and regular writer, Ms Mandy showed a keen sense of professionalism and an admirable aptitude for learning new journalistic skills. She's an industrious worker, a helpful colleague and a reliable talent with so much promise."

Rex Aguado, Former Managing Editor, South China Morning Post

"I briefly worked with Apple in 2011 when she took charge of developing the Hong Kong content for Virgin Atlantic's travel blog. Not only was she professional, reliable and brimming with ideas, she also showed great editorial instincts ensuring our client Virgin and its readers get accurate information and tips. With her warm personality and intuitive energy, I'm happy to endorse her for any writing projects."

Tremayne Cole, Publisher & Founder, Hg2 | A Hedonist's Guide To…

"I have worked with Apple over the past decade, originally at lifestyle magazine That's Shanghai in China and subsequently on various Asia-wide freelance projects. Apple is always a pleasure to collaborate with - full of enthusiasm and dedication to each project. She is excellent at establishing industry relationships, and has broad experience in reporter and editor roles across a variety of media formats."  

Amy Fabris-Shi, Co-founder, Check-in Asia

"Apple was an essential part of the success of That's Shanghai magazine,

where I served as Deputy Editor. It's no exaggeration to say that without her, the food and drink section would not have been half of what it was. Working with her was a pleasure, and to be her friend is a privilege."

Simon Ostheimer, Former Food Editor, That's Shanghai

"I had the pleasure to work with Apple during the years I lived in Hong Kong.

We collaborated on several occasions: first as colleagues at a public relations agency, then after when she worked at South China Morning Post. As a colleague, she’s very hardworking and an effective team-player who managed clients well on a day-to-day basis.

She’s also a gifted writer who enjoys telling stories. I would highly recommend her for any project collaborations and cross-cultural environment."

David Duarte, Marketing & PR Professional
