What’s something not many people know about you?
I am an ambivert, so it can be slightly difficult to talk to me on some days.
What do you like to do outside of work?
I like to watch movies, and drive. Taking the car to go for a spin helps me to relax. One of my favourite areas to go to is the long stretch of road along Changi, near the airport.
What are some of your favourite movies?
It seems silly, but my favourite animated film is Frozen. Besides that, I also like watching TV series on Netflix, like Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and also documentaries that give me a different perspective on things like drug dealers.
What’s the most memorable travel experience you’ve had so far?
I’d say it was my trip to Taiwan with my girlfriends earlier this year, because we went through so much during the two weeks of seeing each other 24/7. We enjoyed the scenery, did fun activities like riding all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), paragliding, and laser tag, had awesome snacks at Shilin Night Market, suffered horrible food experiences at food courts that we became homesick, and also had late-night adventures like clubbing and going to Shilin at midnight for the ‘illegal’ night market that not many people know of—but is equally exciting!
If you could relive any moment or period in your life, what would it be, and why?
It’d be March and April of this year, because I travelled to 3 different countries (Taiwan, Dubai and Bali, Indonesia) back to back, and I was overwhelmed by the many different experiences and cultures that I was exposed to in a such a short period of time. It felt like I was on a never-ending holiday around the globe—needless to say, reality hit me hard when a new semester of school started.
What’s something silly or untrue that you used to believe as a child?
That a pregnancy only lasts one to two weeks! I used to think that once a lady found out she was pregnant, her belly would grow the very next day, and the baby would be in her arms the next week! (laughs) this is so embarrassing!
