The tell-all December Girl

Elle Singapore

I love the end of the year, because there’s Christmas and imaginary snow to look forward to. That is why I was thrilled when I found out I would be part of Elle’s year-end issue. It’s a great collaboration because there’s a new direction, a new stylist and for me, a nice round-up to a new beginning.

2009 has been a dramatic year for me, in more ways than one, and this interview would tell all. I don’t know if it was the unorthodox interview setting (three girls having wine and cocktails) or the alcohol (I had a mojito), but we had a heart-to-heart chat and it felt refreshing to be able to not just answer questions but have a real conversation with someone who understands.

I am touched by the opportunity given to me, and the encouragement to keep me going. It will be a huge issue. Meanwhile, check out a the video below.


Gary always looks stressed when he's working, but I love that intensity when he tries to get the hair to look picture perfect.

One night I bumped into fashion stylist Fong Fan at an event and she discovered this spot. As we stood chatting, she thought this would be a great venue for a photo shoot, and this is where we came back for the cover shoot.

Fashion stylist for this cover shoot, Fong Fan. One night I bumped into her at an event and she discovered this spot. As we stood chatting, she thought this would be a great venue for a photo shoot, and so this was where we came back for the cover shoot. I snapped this picture of her that night because I thought she looked like she was was in NYC or LA or somewhere other than Singapore.

I got her to pose for me and she gamely did.

Today is Be-Nice-To-Me Day, or so I self-proclaim. 🙂 Some time ago I wished for something, and if you’ve been following my tweets, you might guess right.


Be-Nice-To-Me-Smile. Red lipstick is my current fetish. The one I have on is a coral/red shade.

It’s hard to believe I’m a tech-girl, but I am! There are three things that will get my excited and the latest tech gadget is one of them. Imagine my joy when I received this early Christmas gift that came in an all white packaging. Honestly, I never expected it at all, so thank you so much!! Check it out:


There's a Hero, if you look inside your heart......cos' we belong together...(my self rendition of Mariah Carey's medley)


Yessss, that's his name. Hero. Sort of like GERTY, the robot in the movie MOON staring Sam Rockwell.

New phone in tow, today is one of the many good days to come. So I treated myself to the ultimate sinful snack. I’ve heard of this before and friends I know who have tried it rave about it. I simply had to give it a try, even if it’s going to make redundant the workout I just had. Oh well, today is Be-Nice-To-Me-Day, why not?

I am now a willing victim. WARNING, once you start, you can’t stop, so if you’re watching your weight, get it when you’re in a group or going to a party. Spread the calories around!


The unassuming packaging of the box is sneaky! It does not give you an idea of the delightful snack waiting in the box. Chips coated with milk chocolate when combined brought me pure bliss, all in the comfort of my room. I need a shorter novel or a carton of these to keep me company while reading!


Decandently sinful. Sweet and salty. The workout after will be so worth it. S$15 for a pack, available at all Royce outlets.
