Pei Shi is close friends with Mediacorp artists, Jayley and Hayley Woo and blogger Rachell Tan. In 2016, they filmed a parody video for “Why”, a K-Pop song by Taeyeon of Girls’ Generation.

Pei Shi has worked with brands such as Disney, Love, Bonito and Benefit Cosmetics to produce branded written and video content. Her main sponsors are Cleo Hair and Make and Innovative Dermatological Solutions (IDS).
