With one of my favourite makeup artist, Cindy Goh. In July’s issue of Nuyou magazine.
I think that support for our local designers is lacking. This is in stark contrast to what I see overseas, when I travel. It seems like fashion is so much more vibrant when the young and aspiring designers are given free reign to express themselves. However, in Singapore, we tread ever so carefully because we don’t know how many seasons we can last. Starting a new fashion line isn’t easy, building it up is even harder.
Personally, I love colours that pop. I think that when you have gear that looks so vibrant and happy, it makes whatever activity you engage in much more fun, be it swimming, a day at the beach, or going to the gym.
So, one week after the Star Awards is over, we celebrate. We celebrate the graduation. This time, it’s a little different as well, I was the host. I think it’s a different feeling for all my fans. For the first time, they didn’t have to wreck their brains on the venue, plan the games or activities, worry about the food and all the other nitty gritty details that go into planning a gathering. Actually I kept it really simple and personal, a very cosy sharing session that I have always liked to have. I definitely hope that all had fun!
I started off as most little girls with minimal fuss and care for my skin. I remember following my mother to her facials and quietly sitting at the corner waiting for her to be done. However, it was only when I entered the industry that it dawned on me that skincare was so important.
Fashion is subjective and what I learn over the years is that as long as you feel comfortable and confident in it, nothing’s going to stop you from looking good. Feel awkward and you will be awkward.
If you told me about a wonderful destination where I could just chill by the sea, have a cocktail while the sun sets beyond the horizon, I would fly myself there if time allowed it. Life in showbiz is fast paced enough and I would love to just unwind and slow down if I get the opportunity to do so.
15 years. It’s a marathon, not a sprint. Thank you for allowing me time to grow. Thank you for illuminating my life as an actress.
Colours are also a form of expression. I believe I should feel free to express myself, quirks and all. So as they say.. Follow your heart’s desires. Wear something that defines you, something that you feel comfortable in, something that expresses who you are.
I’m glad I didn’t give up, because soon enough, I chanced upon this. I think it’s pretty cute. It definitely has the likes of “happy shoes”. It’s not totally plain white canvas, but when you have prints like this, it’s a definite welcome to your existing collection.
Some shoots you get a thrill of experimenting with different things. Some shoots allow you to morph into someone else. Some shoots reflect a very personal private aspect of you. Some shoots just seem to fall in place with all the right elements.
The last time I was on Nuyou cover was in 2013. Reading the editor’s words, I was elated to find out that my last issue was also the best selling issue in that year. This is a big shout out to all of you who bought the issue in support of me. Times like this, I feel blessed and it adds itself onto the list of things that make me smile.
