Actress, singer-songwriter, model, TV host and entrepreneur with top academic results in Computer Science. The multi talented Hannah Tan, from Penang, Malaysia, is the epitome of beauty and brains.

Very active on social media, Hannah has a massive following and constantly interacts with her legion of fans who look up to her as a role model. An inspiration to all, SimplySxy is delighted to have this opportunity to ask Hannah a few questions to know her better.
SimplySxy: Hi Hannah, thank you for being on SimplySxy. Firstly, can you tell us more about yourself?
Hannah: Thank you so much for having me on this interview (smiles). Well, to sum it all up, I’m an entrepreneur with the academic background in Computer Science. I love to eat, cook, travel and sing in the shower. The opportunity to be independent and start work at the age of 16 has allowed me to learn many valuable lessons in life and business, which has shaped me into the fighter and survivor that I am today. In February 2014, I married my best friend, giving me one more aspect of life to explore, learn from, and share with my online family (grins).
SimplySxy: You are titled as the “MOST WANTED WOMAN IN MALAYSIA”. Can you tell us how did you achieve it?
Hannah: LOL~ Oh goodness, I have no idea. There’s a host of women more beautiful, talented and waaay more attractive than I am; sometimes I wonder if they got the votes counted right (laughs). I definitely don’t deserve that title.
SimplySxy: Apart from your busy work schedule, what do you normally do when you have free time or what have you always wanted to do but never had time to?
Hannah: Two things – travel and cook. Or anything to do with food for that matter. Lol.
SimplySxy: Tell us the most and least glamorous part of your job.
Hannah: I don’t think there’s anything glamorous about my job. Lol. Nevertheless, with what I enjoy doing most (my social enterprise), the part about being able to impact the health and earning capacity of the people I work with gives me so much fulfillment. It’s the opportunity to be able to make the difference, and empowering others to do the same that makes it so wonderful.
SimplySxy: You have great skin and beautiful body! Tell us your beauty regime and your secrets in staying in shape!
Hannah: You (are) far too kind. I’ve learnt over the years that hormone and chemical imbalances as well as nutrient deficiencies within our bodies are reflected on our skin and overall appearance, so that trick is to manage everything from within. We’re all born with a certain set of nutrients, and our body is like a bank account – if we keep withdrawing from it and fail to replenish it as we go along over the years, we’d be in trouble. The trick is to feed the body with the right raw materials so that it can heal, repair and maintain itself naturally. That’s where taking the right natural supplements come in, especially since it’s impossible to load in all the nutrients and phytochemicals our body needs on a daily basis through our 21st century diet. Of course, sufficient sleep also plays a significant role since the body repairs itself as we do just that. Next comes the right intake of water on a daily basis and regular exercise, in doses that you can maintain in the long term, to keep it all together.
SimplySxy: Sexiest part of your body?
Hannah: Errr…still trying to figure that one out! Lol
SimplySxy: What body part of the opposite sex do you find most attractive?
Hannah: A genuine smile or if that’s not considered a body part (laughs), a toned physique (which means he’s disciplined enough to look after his body).
SimplySxy: Your Instagram has many inspiring quotes! Can you tell us one of your favourite quotes that you live by?
Hannah: Thank you for your encouragement (smiles). My personal favourites are:
- Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says “Oh Crap, She’s up!” – Anonymous
- The dictionary is the only place where success comes before work – Vince Lombardi
- Affliction is often that thing which prepares an ordinary person for some sort of an extraordinary destiny – C.S. Lewis
- Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people – Eleanor Roosevelt
SimplySxy: Name us five things that you can’t live without!
Hannah: My phone, high-speed internet connectivity, two to three litres of water a day infused with a shot of my daily dose of phytonutrients, food every two to three hours and TLC from my one and only.
SimplySxy: Thank you so much for giving SimplySxy the opportunity to interview you and we wish you all the best. Lastly, tell us your definition of “Sexy”.
Hannah: A quiet confidence when you learn to put others first and realise that it’s not just about you. Thanks again for having me. It’s such as honour.
