If you were to live alone for the rest of your life, where would you want to be, and why?
I think Bali, because it’s quite laid-back and it’s a place where you can chill and relax. It’s not difficult to start a business there as well. And there’re also neighbouring countries around Indonesia that are worth exploring, so if I live alone, that’s probably something that I can do.
What are the top three things that you’ll bring on a trip?
Sunblock. A hat because I think it just dresses up whatever you’re wearing on the day—it could be something simple like a tank and shorts, but with the hat it’s more ‘glam-ed up’, so you’ll look good in pictures. The last item would be my phone, for taking pictures. (laughs) But I’ll probably bring a book as well. I don’t read a lot, but if I travel alone, that’s something I’ll need to bring.
Can you tell us about your most memorable trip?
I like hiking and I’m not much of a city person, so my trip to Sri Lanka was the most memorable. It took me six hours to climb Ella Rock. It wasn’t easy because it’s not on clean terrain and it was actually quite rocky. We had a local guide to help us through. It was quite tough but it was nice because the hike goes into the villages. The people are very simple in the way they live, and that’s quite interesting.
A wardrobe staple:
Not really a staple, but my bag usually matches my shoes—so if I have this navy blue bag, I’d actually have navy blue shoes too. Earrings too; those are the basic things that I’ll need. Lipstick as well, but that’s part of makeup.
Something interesting about me:
I’m scared of birds, but I actually have parrots at home that belong to my mum. (laughs) I really hate birds.
