Finally…Video day!!


 
Today we produced several wonderful short product videos with our lovely model, Paul’s daughter, Katja. A fantastic team of professionals did the shooting. Our new makeup artiste Pei Ling created perfect makeovers. All team at Paul Penders Headquarters in Langkawi UNESCO Geopark were prepared to make this for the most successful video production possible…. we all were fully prepared and anxious to start.
 
The purpose was to make various video presentations about specific functions, and, how to use best the Paul Penders natural herbal cosmetics. Each video segment will be placed in our new Paul Penders International website coming out soon!
 
The video shooting we start out was with ICT (Intensive Clarifying Therapy). Other skincare products followed. Soon we will present the results on this blog, but we can already let you know that the results were extremely pleasing, also to the professional team as well.
 

 
We were little nervous during the preparations and needed to overcome several challenges making things rather complicated at times. However, when the videographer team came out with all those weird & high technology equipment, it amazed me to see how professional they were and how smoothly all went.
 

 
Throughout the day we learned a great deal of video shooting! It was a great experience. We are going to develop more of such great short videos in the future, and thus, we continuously to learn new knowledge as well 🙂
 
Here are a few of the pictures taken…
 
Let’s enjoy together…

The truly Amazing Parrot Flower

Incredible things one can experience living on this beautiful, magical part of the world. This blog entree was sent by Hong, Operations Manager at Paul Penders Headquarters in Langkawi UNESCO Geopark island, the oldest rainforest island in the world!

The amazing flower called: “Parrot Flower” is a strongly protected species not allowed to be taken, just looking at it may be the only way to ever see this unique tropical flower.

There are sometimes points in our lives where we realize that whatever may happen to us … well… maybe it is not all that important after all compared to the world of unimaginable beauty around us?

Because who else but the Universe is able to create such a flower for example? What are our problems and difficulties in life compared to timeless and flawless beauty?

So why worry…. why not choose to be happy ?

Indochine Natural Plays Fair

Last week, we were very honored to welcome some very special visitors to Paul Penders headquarters in Langkawi UNESCO Geopark: Dr Mike Thair and Miss Le Thanh Thuy of Indochine Natural.

Mike and Le are from Penang, Malaysia. Their company is founded on the fair trade principle, and they are passionate about producing the high-quality natural cosmetics while helping low-income suppliers in Southeast Asia achieve a sustainable livelihood.

Fair trade is a social movement that helps marginalized producers in developing countries sell their product to an international market without getting exploited by ruthless middlemen. Fair Trade proponents help these producers and workers to achieve greater control over the marketing and pricing of their products, thus leading to stable and self-sufficient businesses.

Dr. Thair is a professional trained chemist (and much more!) and he has a very interesting life story. He has taught in universities and has been advisor to the World Bank in many countries, especially those in Southeast Asia. In my conversations with him, I could see he had a great love for the people here.

Le Thanh Thuy and Mike Thair

Mike and Le were here to talk about environmental issues and other matters that both our companies are concerned about. Mike and Le’s company is located just a minute from The Spice Garden in Penang, where few weeks ago we had a wonderful product shoot with Katja.

We’ll have more on Mike and Le coming up in this blog soon. Stay tuned!

Visit Paul Penders Headquarters on Langkawi

We invite you to take a video-tour of Paul Penders International Headquarters on Langkawi UNESCO Geopark by watching this very idyllic video.

I was reminded of the video a few days ago, when browsing the Internet.  The Better Organic Food blog features Paul Penders by bringing this video we made back in the beginning of 2009.

The video shows the beautiful surroundings of Paul Penders Headquarters, and honestly, it deserves to be watched again.

Enjoy!
