What do you like to do in your spare time?
I explore neighbourhoods on my bicycle (mostly at night), watch my 23 year-old terrapins get up to mischief, and watch films.

Give us a film recommendation!
Perfect Days! I love filmmaker and director Wim Wenders and the Japanese approach to life, so this was the perfect combo for me! The closing scene is immaculate, and the lead, Koji Yakusho, is incredible—I just can’t describe it. I recommend watching till the end of the closing credits for a final glimpse of perfection.

In another life, what would you be doing for work?
I would be running an indie cinema, a shoemaker, a beekeeper!

I was the General Manager of The Projector from its inception for the first five years, and it was a joy to be constantly surrounded by films, film lovers, and people that love going to the cinema. Working together with crazy kindred spirits in our small team made the work super fun and extremely rewarding.

That said, I’m an introvert, so I feel that shoemaking and beekeeping would be occupations that would be equally rewarding for me, as they would allow for moments of deep focus, care, and attention interspersed with interludes of interaction with people who are total nuts about footwear/feet/honey/bees.

What currently inspires your daily wardrobe, and what are some of your go-to stores to shop at?
Currently, my favourite colours to wear are a pairing of either black or dark indigo with coral or orange. I like dark hues for easy pairing, but I also like a splash of colour. I find that coral or orange tones as an accent suits my skin tone and disposition rather well.

As for brands, I have a pair of Tong Tong trousers that I love to bits. My other wardrobe favourites include pieces from Matter Prints, Yumumu, Fog Linen Work, Nakagawa Masashichi Shoten, and Kilomet109.

Do you have any goals you’d like to achieve this year?
I want to learn to cook nutritious, delicious, and reasonably-priced meals!

Food prices are rising rapidly and food security is a real concern. I constantly crave fresh, delicious, plant-centric meals in Singapore, but it’s not so easy to find affordable ones. I also want to be more conscious about what I’m eating, so learning about nutrition seems like a good place to start.

The next step is to learn how to make tasty nutritious meals for myself easily so I can sustain the habit of eating well. Another goal is to reduce the carbon footprint of my ingredients and opt for local or regional produce as much as possible.
