“Why didn’t anyone think of this before?” ~ was the first question I asked Karen Seah, Executive Producer of Refinery Media & Managing Director of The Refinery Studio that’s responsible for SUPERMODELME.tv. What’s so unique about this reality model search? Well, it’s 100% online.
That means you get to interact freely & directly with the models through virtual chat-rooms, web conferences, and participate in online voting. Also, with an innovative technology called Hyperspot, you can simply click on a model’s dress and information about its price & brand pop up instantly. Or how about clicking on her face and getting instant beauty tips?

‘Love Me Do!’, which was launched last October, had recorded impressive figures on the Internet. The website has attracted over 1,000 fans on Facebook, 42,000 unique page visits and more than 830,000 page views.
Apart from winning the wedding of their dream, they will also be named as ambassadors for Berjaya Hotels and Resorts and be a part of the group’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) projects for a period of one year, during which they would be required to participate in all or some of the charity events organised by the group.
What does it mean… “in traditional educational instituitons that do not apply the immersion methodology, it is just learning theories in classes and that is it. however in the application of this methodology, the classroom is expanded in the sense that it “throws” the students directly into the industry itself whereby they apply the knowledge that they learn to polish up their skills. in other words it is the application of theories in the practical world as hospitality is not a “book” industry it is a “practical” industry. beyond books it is also the exposure to the environment as well as it is vital that the environment reflects what the students are learning. imagine students learning medicine who do all thier learning in a classroom but when they go into an operating theatre, they are unable to apply the knowledge they have learned .. same concept. i hope this answers your query in the immersion methodology.”
