Amber Chia story

Oh wow, where did the time go?

Yes, I know it’s a little late to wish everybody happy new year, but better late than never, yes? I was having some trouble with my blog and the few posts I uploaded kept disappearing one week after I posted them up, grr.  Getting a friend to help me out here so please be patient, k?

In the meantime, I’m really excited about the stories that I have done so far, and will be doing for the rest of the year. Like this Amber Chia cover story for Malaysian Women’s Weekly 🙂

Prior to meeting her, almost everybody I talked to made snide remarks about her English.

… and after the interview?

I felt like punching everybody who dares say anything derogatory about her English. That was how fiercely protective I felt about her.

Fyi, she conducted the entire interview in English. In more-than-decent English too, mind you. She was a great interviewee. One of the best I’ve met, for sure. One question and she gives you enough quotes for a book. Nearly.

Yes I’m gushing but you know what? She deserves it because she IS that nice. That likeable. And that inspiring. When you’ve learnt what she went through to get to this level, seriously, you too would have nothing but respect and admiration for this woman.

Don’t have to take my word for it. The Feb edition of The Weekly is still available on the newsstands 🙂
