What's New Toronto

Vivien Louie Nominated to Participate in the "Kakehashi (Bridge) Project"


Vivien Louie, Promotion and Special Projects Manager at FTV, was honored to be nominated by the Consul-General of Japan in Vancouver to participate in the Asian Canadian Leadership Program under the exchange program "Kakehashi (Bridge) Project", organized by Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan. Vivien, along with 4 professional elites including 2 Chinese-Canadians from Montreal and Ottawa, two Korean-Canadians from Toronto and Calgary, traveled to Tokyo and Osaka for 8 days to meet with politicians, experience Japanese culture, visit historical landmarks and attend information sessions on the current cutting-edge innovations in Japan. Vivien also had the opportunity to present to Japanese political leaders and international enterprises on how Fairchild Media Group serves as a bridge between Chinese-Canadian community and the mainstream society in Canada.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan attached great importance to the Kakehashi Project as the team was greeted by Mayor of Sakai City, Osami Takeyama, in person.

Grew up in Vancouver and graduated from St. George's School, Parliamentary Vice-Minister for Foreign Affairs, Kiyoto Tsuji, reminisced on his teenage life in Vancouver when he met with the team members. Co-incidentally, some Japanese business senior executives had previously worked at the Canadian communications and energy sectors as well.

In addition to a guided tour at the social and political infrastructure, the team also explored the recently opened "new Tsukiji" market in Toyosu and was updated on the preparations for the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo. Just last summer, the futuristic creature, Miraitowa was unveiled as the official mascot for Tokyo 2020 Olympics, representing the prominent and advanced aspect of the new technologies in Japan. The trip could not have completed without visiting the humanoid robot ASIMO.


Japan was confronted by an onslaught of natural disasters this year, including several earthquakes and typhoons, causing severe damages on roads and buildings, especially in Osaka which was hit by both disasters. Nevertheless, the government has paid a tremendous effort in successfully dealing with the aftermath. Tourist attractions like the famous cultural heritage Osaka Castle have been reopened for tourism.

Through this program, team members were able to appreciate how Japanese traditional values mingle well with modern ideology. Japanese culture thus transcends the passage of time. Likewise, Fairchild Television has demonstrated to fellow citizens across the nation and friends from a different continent the critical role of overseas Chinese media in exploring new horizons while preserving our own heritage.

Miss Chinese Vancouver Pageant 2018
Kick Start Press Conference


For nearly a quarter of a century after its inception, the legacy of Miss Chinese Vancouver Pageant continues. To celebrate Fairchild Television’s Silver Anniversary and commemorate another milestone Miss Chinese Vancouver Pageant will be attaining next year at its 25th Anniversary, the recruitment was officially launched today at the “Miss Chinese Vancouver Pageant 2018 Kick Start Press Conference” along with the theme “Classics ∞ Abound”.

The press conference was unfolded by a magical silver ring stunt. The different combinations of rings represented the infinite potential of every young lady, just like Tingting Niu, the 2nd Runner-Up of Miss Chinese Vancouver Pageant 2017. Tingting is not only a versatile performer, whose dancing and singing skills are on a professional level, but she is also extremely eloquent. On this very significant occasion, she joined hands with Chris Yuen as the MC’s.

In harmony with the theme “Classics ∞ Abound”, the special guests of the press conference were invited to share some classic memories at the Pageant. Ms. Deborah Moore revealed that with her limited proficiency of the Chinese language, it was definitely a nerve-racking experience being appointed as the MC of the very first Pageant. Deborah even slightly joked that it was as challenging as competing at Miss Hong Kong Pageant.


Next up was former veteran chaperone, Ms. Kelly Chan, who had witnessed the birth of numerous Miss Chinese Vancouver’s for over 10 years. Among all the unforgettable memories, Kelly recalled vividly that Eliza Sam at that time was lack of confidence with lots of worries on expressing herself in Chinese at the Q&A session. Nonetheless, Kelly was pleasantly surprised by this intelligent lady when later onstage she saw Eliza communicating in French with the MC who happened to be a fluent French speaker as well!


Over the past 2 decades, the prestigious Miss Chinese Vancouver Pageant has seen many outstanding ladies with phenomenal success at both Miss Chinese Vancouver and Miss Chinese International Pageants, including Crystal Pan, Bernice Liu, Shirley Zhou, Linda Chung, Leanne Li, Cici Chen, Eliza Sam, Cindy Zhong, Gloria Tang, and Jennifer Coosemans. The Pageant has also served as a platform for the young finalists to overcome their anxieties and further their pageant ventures. Returning to Hong Kong as an overseas contestant at Miss Hong Kong Pageant two years after Miss Chinese Vancouver Pageant, Ms. Kayi Cheung made history by becoming the first Miss Chinese Vancouver to capture the title of Miss Hong Kong. During the press conference, Kayi remembered the massive criticisms following the announcement of her championship and stated that family and friends’ supports were exceedingly important in helping her to conquer the negative energy.


Along with Miss Chinese Vancouver 2017 Cheryl Ng, Kayi urged all talented young ladies to act fast and step onto the journey of fame.


1st Runner-Up and 2nd Runner Up, Ruby Ng and Tingting Niu, expressed thanks to Fairchild Television for providing a high level of professional trainings and felt blessed by how much their horizons have been broadened through community services and events the past year.

The entire press conference was live-streamed on Facebook. Everyone is welcome to watch it through MCVP Facebook (mcvpcanada). Moreover, please stay tuned to the official website www.fairchildtv.com and other MCVP social media platforms where Cheryl, Ruby and Ting Ting will be sharing their extraordinary pageant experiences and interview tips soon.

The winners of Miss Chinese Vancouver Pageant 2017 and the special guests of the press conference encouraged all aspiring young beauties to take the initiative and audition for the Miss Chinese Vancouver Pageant 2018. To wrap up the press conference, President of Fairchild Media Group and the MCVP Chairperson, Mr. Joe Chan, was invited onto the stage to officiate the Miss Chinese Vancouver Pageant 2018 campaign. Miss Chinese Vancouver Pageant 2018 Final will be held at the Vancouver Convention Centre on December 6th (Thursday). Application deadline is September 14th (Friday), 5pm.

Whether serving as judge or special guest performer for the New Talent Singing Awards Vancouver Audition or as stage instructor for the Super 10 Singing Contest, renowned singer and singing coach, Annabelle Louie’s presence is synonymous with perfection. Under the accompaniment of piano and flute, Annabelle opened with the delicate Inaudible Words and followed by an electrifying performance of the medley I Need a Hero and Farewell Kiss. Her rendition of Rain of Affection was sentimental and touching. Annabelle’s performance would not be complete without her signature tune Old Dreams Should Be Forgotten, which was voted as one of the 25 unforgettable classics in a voting organized by Fairchild Television. The familiar melody was re-arranged by Richard Yuen and accompanied by three young talented local musicians with Chinese and Western musical instruments. The enthralled audience all had one thing in mind; old dreams should be forgotten but a good song should be remembered always!
