[Press] Shiseido Professional

For the archives...

Thank you Shiseido Professional for nominating me to try this new shade of red. Chinese New Year festive colors campaign by Shiseido Professional Singapore. Featured in FEMALE magazine, Nu You magazine, and HerWorld (January 2016)

Happy Year of the Monkey!  It's a funny experience, how something as simple as changing your hair color changes how you are perceived. It's an instant form of self-expression. I love that, especially because it's so transient and unpredictable. In that moment of red, you're unconventional, untameable, a mistress of her fate.

[Blog] Another Day on Set with Büro24/7

Today is another photo shoot and video shoot day! After trying out a new range of skincare products by Cle de Peau Beaute, I'm at Büro 24/7 Singapore's pop-up store to discuss my skincare routine and quirks (For example, "What's the most extreme thing you've done in the name of beauty?" they asked). I may be known for the food/drink/travel category, but I'm grateful I have the opportunity to eventually work with brands in other things that I love as well: beauty, fitness, sport, health.

A friend of mine wants to do all the things she loves too, but doesn't understand where to start. She's musically gifted, and I suggested that she focus on her music first, instead of spreading herself thin and trying to conquer everything at once. Let the world see the dedication to her craft. It's important to take one step at a time, to work hard and be patient. Sometimes trying to do everything all at once ends up paralysing you instead of moving you forward.

Dare to Dream

The world seems to get more and more cynical.  People are afraid to even entertain the notion of extraordinary, to think wildly, to be original.  I, too, began to fall into this self-imposed limitation for a while.  But no more.

We all have resolutions and often times we keep them to mundane ordinary goals, but this 2016 you and I should dream big. Dare to dream the implausible, what seems impossible.

If you could do anything in this universe, what would you do? What would you want?  Who would you be? 

Spend a little time everyday thinking big. 

There's no cost for using your imagination... Use it and you might surprise yourself what you end up stumbling upon. It could be discovering something about yourself, or something you're meant to do.

Victoria in 2007

Tatler Hong Kong 2008 with Dad

Look what I found! This is what I was doing back in 2007, when I was in F&B working on new restaurants and business development... I remember this interview, I was terrified of being in front of the camera!  Never would I have thought nearly 10 years later, I would regularly be on camera.  Funny where life takes you. This clip is from Hong Kong's aTV channel about one of our restaurant concepts back then, Duke's Burger.
