Hi there, I’m Leney!
Petite, feminine, Korean inspired.
What Mantra That You Believe in?
This is what I remind myself everyday, ‘Live like Today is your Last Day’
After graduating from University in 2013, I was at the crossroad where I could either get a 9-5 job or become an entrepreneur and start something new from scratch.
Since I was young, I chose the latter and never looked back since. I didn’t want to live a life with any regrets.
At the moment, I am the founder of a Korean fashion online store at leneys.com and a brand ambassador by collaborating with companies.
What makes you smile the most?
When my boyfriend does sweet things without being asked or gives me a surprise.

I would say I’m fortunate to be in my position and work with other brands. I was lucky enough to be able to be brand ambassador for a Korea beauty brand VT Cosmetics recently.

Recommended place in Malaysia
Malacca! It’s a biased question since I was born and raised here. Malacca is a lively cultural melting pot of history and heritage. The food here are also influenced by the Portuguese and Nyonya family.
Her favourite destination
After traveling several parts of Asia, I find myself going back to Korea over and over again. I’ve been there many times, I love their fashion and beauty products.. and every time I’m back there, I’m learning and experiencing something new and different.
Malaysian favourite food
Asam pedas ikan pari with nasi lemak and telur mata kerbau. Yums.
What’s next for you?
This year will be about the year to start something new or doing something that I’m always afraid of.
I’m thinking YouTube.
