Hi, my name is Iris, you can call me 星儿 also in mandarin. I am currently work as freelancer and am also an influencer. Besides, I also have my own online business which is selling original Casio watches. If you want to buy watches you can find me too, haha XD. I finished my Bachelor degree in business administration and spent three years in Kuala Lumpur. But I am a Johorian from Johor Bahru. My hobbies are playing table tennis, swimming and taking pretty photos =）
I like to share any things in my life on the spot mostly thru Insta story ^^
How will you describe your fashion style?
Good tastes will never go out of style. It is better to regret the things you wear than regret the things you didn’t wear. Do not mind other’s people perception on you, and just be yourself. Wear any thing you like and am comfortable with. Style is a form of expression and also a way to share your information to people around you.
For me, I like to dress according to my mood, for example if I’m moody; I like to wear a bit brighter to cheer myself up and don’t share your negative mood to people around you. Mostly, I like black or white colors as it looks simple and nice, although it is not a good sign of color in the Chinese tradition. But these colors make you easier to be more “cool” in style.
Lastly, be your own style and make it have more personality.
Do you have a beauty regime to looking so beautiful?
Everyone is different and unique. Each person defines beautiful in different ways. For me, true beautiful comes from inner and outer. For example, you have a kind heart, you are willing to share your knowledge selflessly, you are willing to give a helping hand to those who need your help.
At the same time, your kindness will make you look more beautiful in appearance. Having a healthy lifestyle also is the key to being beautiful. Do not smoke, reduce caffeine and reduce alcohol also will keep your skin more elastic and healthier. Eat more fruits, exercise regularly and sleep earlier is also a main key to keep you more pretty in this electronic society.
Another regime to share is to maintain your good mood! I really believe that bad moods will affect seriously either your health, your skin and also your day! So keep up your good mood every day=)
What do you like to do during your free time?
I really love to surf online. When you are surfing online, you will know any news immediately without stepping out from home. At the same time, I like to study other peoples photo taking skills and try to learn from it. I think this is a good way to improve my own photo taking skills.
Other than that, I also like to go swimming when I’m free. Swimming is a good way to relax your mind, listening to the amazing water sound and also swimming can help in listening to your heart when you are facing confusion.
Is there any food or drink you don’t take?
Haha, yes! I think everyone has their own likes and dislikes for food. But I think I’m very weird on this. For me, I really cannot like pumpkin, bitter gourd and anything relate to the bitter smell and anything considered “hard to bite”. For example, I like to eat french fries but only eat fries in soft textures and my friend will specially pick soft texture French fries for me XD.
On the opposite, I verymuch like to eat tofu, especially stinky tofu (臭豆腐) and the king of fruits – Durian. Every time I visit Kuala Lumpur, I must eat stinky tofu as JB is not famous for that, and most of the Johorians cannot take the heavy smell. But I have a special liking on it, and you really must have a try=)
Have you been in an embarrassing situation that is funny now when you look back?
Yes! Haha, now thinking back it really felt so funny and embarrassing. I have more than one embarrassing situation that happened in my life. But one of the deep impression was I remember that day I needed to text my supplier to make an appointment for the next day. But, I accidentally texted him with “eating shit”, as the phone will remember your previous text and automatically correct it.
Actually my mantra is scolding someone with “eating shit 吃大便” without any hostility. After that I was shocked and cannot retrieved the message back XD. I think he was very shock also as suddenly he got scolded by me, haha! Then I quickly apologized for sending wrongly. The most embarrassing moment was when we met face to face! Haha! Since that time, I will check my text before I send it to someone else. Really never felt more embarrassing and funny in my life.
Which movie did you last watch and was it good?
Aquaman is the last movie I watched in 2018! Really a good movie and I watched it twice. Actor Jason Momoa was perfectly cast as a CD hero, his appearance with his muscles and his height was suitable for acting the “aquaman”. He brings a playfulness and enthusiasm to this film. He perfectly explains the half-human and half-Atlantean and brings us to his life to becoming a King. Besides, the heroine “Mera” was so pretty and has a good body figure. I could not remove my signs on her. Haha! It was a good movie ever to end my year 2018!
What is the funniest or lamest attempt a guy has tried to know you?
One of the lamest attempts he did was finding excuses to deliver his bento by asking me where I was working. This guy knows me though short films on Facebook which I act as a sales girl in a bridal shop for a valentine’s commercial. Then he believed that I’m really a sales girl in that bridal shop and tried to ask about the exact place I worked. Actually I did not believe that he really thought that I’m working as a sales girl like in the short film. I felt quite funny about how he tried to meet a girl online XD.
Another lamest attempt was a man try to private message me and asking me whether if I wanted to join his movie shoot or not, but actually I felt quite afraid when receiving messages like this. I will always check his profile when someone attempt to contact me. For me, you can know me online, follow me, or comment on my photo to support me or to attract my attention. But personally I do not like to meet strangers online in person.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Iris. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Thank you for interviewing me ^^. For me, the word “sexy” comes from personal confidence, passion, kindness and intelligence. Personal confidence can be shown through eye contact, strong and purposeful walk, and a welcoming smile. Personal confidence is a foundation for a strong life which it is the ability to be successful after what you want. Other than that, passion is one of the keys to make you look sexy in life.
A passion for life, passion for an interest, music or art which is able to drive you to be a better person. Sexiness from passion shows when a woman truly loves what she is doing. Taking a few moments to go out of your way to talk with someone else, showing compassion to other people from different races, regardless where are they from.Showing kindness is a level of depth that could never be made up by a beautiful exterior.
Last but not least, intelligence of someone will make up someone sexier. Being intellectually challenging and having the ability to hold real discussions about meaningful topics will always bring you to the long run regarding beauty and sexiness. Sexy will not only be defined as sexually attractive, but from the inner and behavior of someone.
Lastly, I am really felt grateful to have such a wonderful interview by Simply Sxy =)
