Please introduce yourself
Hey there! I’m a 27-year-old coffee addict born and raised in Butterworth and am now living in Kuala Lumpur. I have an unhealthy obsession with trying different beauty products so needless to say I do spend a lot of my time browsing at places such as Sephora. I love taking pictures and I enjoy travelling to see the world.
What is your current occupation?
I am currently a HR Manager in a construction company. I alternate between doing tasks such as payroll in the office and doing site inspection at construction sites. What can I say? I enjoy a challenge 😉

What’s the current update about yourself?
Oh, did I not mention that makeup is one of my biggest interests? So much so that I recently signed up for makeup courses after work. I’m always in search of picking up new skills and I have always wanted to learn bridal makeup from experienced makeup artists.
Describe your personal style in THREE words
Less or more?
Less, less and less! You will come to learn that for me less is always more.
What do you wear on lazy days?
Tank top, oversized shirt paired with shorts/jeans.
Who’s your style icon?
Chriselle Lim. I enjoy looking at how she styles and matches her outfits.
How do you stay up to date with fashion?
Mainly through fashion blogs, websites, magazines and good old social media.
What do you think about denim over denim?
Hmm… It can be tricky at times but looks amazing if you manage to pull it off.
Sneakers, flats or heels kinda girl?
If I can only choose one then it has to be flats 🙁
What’s your style philosophy?
Be inspired but don’t copy. I cannot stress this enough because I’m a firm believer in ‘your own kind of beauty’. Girls who have that are the prettiest and attracts people the most.
What’s a fashion trend that can never let you down?
A pair of nice jeans and strappy heels never seems to fail me 😀
Do you see makeup as part of fashion?
Matching makeup to your outfit is always a bonus!
Which celebrities have the best style to you?
Hands down Miranda Kerr! I simply cannot get over the fact how simple yet elegant she can be!
Monochrome or colour blocking?
Who is the most fashionable woman that you know?
And the winner is… Chriselle Lim!
What’s your favourite thing to wear?
A comfortable white t-shirt with jeans to pair with black strappy heels.
Accessories you can’t live without?
Nothing is complete without a watch, also I have this annoying habit to always check the time.
Are you afraid of wearing an all-white outfit?
Not at all! In fact most of my outfits are white. However it is highly unlikely to see me in white jeans.
What are the FIVE things that you must have in your bag?
Shu Uemura eyebrow pencil, DIOR Addict Lip Glow Colour Awakening Lipbalm, Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain, Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet Story purse spray perfume and Crabtree & Evelyn Hand Lotion.
What’s the priciest thing you ever splurge on?
Makeup and skincare products. Thanks a lot Sephora…
If you have to wear ONE thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Which fashion trend that will never be out of style?
I’d say monochrome. You can never go wrong with black and white right?
Polka dots or stripes?
What are you currently following in the fashion industry (brand, news, model career, etc)
The Met Gala 2017. Popularly known as the “Party of the Year” and for its celebrities and fashion icons that makes the guest list. My favourite look will have to be Miranda Kerr wearing Oscar de la Renta paired with Christian Louboutin shoes and Cartier jewelry.
What do you like besides fashion?
Makeup of course! I usually spend my leisure time watching YouTube makeup tutorials for inspiration and also to keep up with what’s trending.
Your favourite apparel?
What kind of style that you’re least confident about?
A bareback outfit.
What’s your favourite fashion brand?
Who’s your biggest influence when it comes to fashion?
Name THREE things you can’t live without?
My trusty iPhone, Shu Uemura eyebrow pencil and Annick Goutal Le Chevrefeuille perfume.
When did you first involve in fashion?
Started ditching my dorky look at around 22 years old. Big win!
