The first week of my internship working for Mazzy was awesome. Mazzy Snape - she is freelance event organiser and enterpriser based in Birmingham. She contributes in a lot of cultural events and festivals, definitely my role model in event industry.
I am so happy to work in the creative space of Birmingham - Impact Hub. This is the most amazing space I have ever worked in, so many excited events and projects going on. Everyone is super friendly, most importantly with on-site DIY kitchen, cereal bar and cafe! I was very look forward when I first heard that we are going to based in Impact Hub. I have been here while volunteering for Flatpack Film Festival so I know how wonderful would that be. Also, while I volunteering in the festival, I met one of the organiser - Sam Grove, I know he is going to Hong Kong so I provided my network and knowledge of Hong Kong to assist Flatpack Asia happened first time in Asia.
開始左第一個星期實習，Mazzy Snape係 Birmingham 做 freelance event organiser，大部分既project都關於creative and culture，音樂藝術文化都關事。Mazzy係我係Birmingham識最岩既學習對象，真係好開心可以跟佢做野。
我地既工作地點係Impact Hub，係一個creative space俾新start up公司開始，有好多其他唔同既細公司一齊係同一個地方返工。係呢到係一個小社區，全部人都超好人，人人都有自己既夢想，個個都努力用自己方式去尋找新天地。係Impact Hub有一個小廚房，無火煮食但都有基本既用具仲有自己既coffee shop。我之前係Flatpack Film Festival做volunteer既時候已經黎過，所以一d都唔陌生。順帶一提，Flatpack Film Festival係Birmingham一年一度既獨立電影節，係volunteer 期間我識左其中一個打算去香港既搞手，上年四月仲第一次去亞洲 － 香港，我海外幫手幾日內搵場租場，其實好好玩，我都係第一次係英國做香港event！詳情可以睇 Flatpack Asia。
After that, we visited one of our clients - The Night Owl, a Soul, Motown and Ska night club in DIgbeth. This is a very rare club with beautiful interior design where plays 60s -90s tunes and not chart music. After that, we went to another client - Mocking Bird, the restaurant in Custard Factory.
之後我地去左其中一個客，The Night Owl - Soul, Motown and Ska night club，60年代既音樂，好難用廣東話解釋......有興趣google下。大部分英國既club都無乜內部裝修，但呢間就好靚有晒裝飾同重要唔係播chart music。之後再去另一個客係Custard Factory一間餐廳，Mocking Bird，首先講下Custard Factory，係舊吉士醬廠（無錯係食得奶黃色個d），改建既創意產業工業區，有好多creative公司係到起家。
Let's talk what I usually do at work, I spent most of the time on researching about potential events and bands, creating ideas for new launch events and promotion. Compared to what I did in university, this research is more enjoyable and painless.
我工作範圍大部分時間都係做資源搜集，揾有潛質合作既events 同bands，諗新下計做新events 同promotion，相比係大學做既research呢d真係好玩好多。
As a foodie, I have to mention that Impact Hub does a great job to enhance productivity, which is Breakfast Club Monday, Yoga Wednesday and AFTERNOON TEA THURSDAY. Cream tea every Thursday! This is the best cure for me ever.
At the end of the week, there is no queue for Pho in Grand Central finally! I have craving Vietnamese food for ages, definitely give it a go! Yum yum….
