Hi, I’m Amber Chia, I was born in Teluk Intan, Perak. Due to my parent’s hardship, I was taken care by my foster parents at eight years old. When I turned 12, I moved back to Tawau, Sabah. I stopped schooling at 15, to work full-time in order to help my family. I worked three jobs; selling fish at the market in the morning, salesgirl at a small mall in the day and a cashier at a pub at night. When I was 17, I left for Kuala Lumpur to be a model and rose to prominent after Winning the Guess Watches Timeless Beauty International Model Search 2004 title.
I’m a Malaysian model & celebrity, actress, brand ambassador, and entrepreneur.

Shu uemura ultime8 sublime beauty cleansing oil
Due to work, I have to do cleansing everyday for my make up. A good cleansing oil is essential for my beauty. Some of the awesome ingredients are Japanese Camellia, Korean Ginseng and Golden Bamboo which contributes to better condition, nourish and protect the skin, just perfect for me.
