Currently battling uni stress!

Favorite new beauty products

Colourpop’s Ultra Glossy Lips in Sookie! Super affordable and if you like that bitten, just-ate-a-bowl-of-cherries lips, this is the one!

Where do you spend most of your time?

In my studio, either revising or catching up with Korean dramas. If I’m not in my studio, I’ll either be in class or the Starbucks in my uni!

Recommended place to visit in Malaysia

My hometown, Kuching, Sarawak. Nothing beats home. And the food!

Cleaning and revising (typical uni student weekend). If I’m not drowned in chores, I’ll head out to have my favorite Korean food in Nottingham and walk around the city centre with my girlfriends.

Favorite place you have travelled to?

Seoul, Korea! The food, the shopping, the buildings… I’ve been there only twice and I need to explore more the next time I go there.

How do you unwind after work?

A good ol’ in shower coffee body scrub followed by a cup of tea.
