Something people don’t really know about me:
I have a really soft spot for old people. So if I see an elderly person on the street, and if they need help in any way, I’d help. I’m quite close to my grandparents.
I travel a lot.
For work, mainly in Southeast Asia, but for pleasure, a bit further away, because my husband is from Italy. I like going to the Mediterranean area a lot because they really have a different type of life—they know how to shut their brains off and enjoy themselves. As Asians, we’re always doing something or thinking about something; we can’t seem to be able to master the art of not doing anything.
If you could have a superpower, what would it be and why?
Oh my, I think about this a lot—I’d want to be able to read people’s minds. I feel like we live in a world now where everything is filtered and nothing is really honest, so I don’t want to second-guess the intention of people. I deal with human relations, so I just wish that sometimes people would get to the point.
What’s one thing you’ve learnt from all your time at work?
That change is the only constant.
Favourite comfort foods:
My mum’s century egg porridge—she does it her own style. Also, in Italy, there’s one thing I always go for. It’s called trofie al pesto, pasta with basil, pine nuts, a lot of olive oil, and garlic. It’s the simplest dish but the most difficult to perfect.
