Chinese-Canadian Model & Entrepreneur Candice Lia

Hi Candice it is a pleasure to feature you on SimplySxy.  Please share with our readers a little about yourself and where you’re from?

Greetings from Canada! Thank you, SimplySxy, for featuring me today. It is a pleasure to share a little bit of myself with you and your readers. I am a Chinese-Canadian published model based in Vancouver. I enjoy doing promotional modeling, working at car shows, traveling around the world and working on my own brand as my life career.

What do you enjoy most about being a model?

As I am mainly an extrovert, I love meeting new people and socializing. The best place for this is at car shows! Car shows are so much fun. You get to see all the cool rides as well as meeting other photographers, models, and brands that you have potential of working with in the future. I also love working for myself, as I also consider myself an entrepreneur.

Is there a memorable modeling experience you can share with us?

One of my most memorable modeling experiences is one I cherish in my heart because of how unique yet simple it was. It was just a road trip with me and a couple other girls. One of them was a photographer; the other was another model/actress. We had only just met and we were driving to Vancouver Island so we had to take the ferry as well. Even though we were going somewhere local, it proves that even the simple things in life can still be enjoyed. We were on our way to shoot all day in the countryside, at a saloon for a calendar. The saloon style is not quite my style anymore, but I was young in my modeling career and that was an adventure for me.

The girls and I bonded so well, and we had such a close tight-knit experience. We were enjoying complimentary alcohol and food all day while shooting against car after car. There were some really awesome classics too. Everyone was so nice and welcoming; it was a totally different environment. I just had so much fun in the car with them, on the ferry, on the island, and even the whole way back home. It shows that you don’t have to necessarily hop on a first class plane to another country in order to have fun. Fun can be found right in your very own province, just an island away… and you would’ve never even had known.

Where do you like to party usually?

Since I am usually in Vancouver, my favourite local places are Celebrities Nightclub, Harbour Event Centre, and Bimini Public House. Celebrities is my number one spot. They’re popular there on Tuesdays and weekends. Harbour is great when they have a big event going on with big name DJ’s. Bimini is a cool place to drink and dance if you’re in the mood to go out on a Wednesday night. If you ever see me at these places, don’t be afraid to say hi! I love meeting my supporters and we can snap a selfie together!

Do you have any guilty pleasures when it comes to food?

I generally have a healthy diet. I regularly eat salads, meat and vegetables. Although I enjoy it, I can’t say I don’t have any guilty pleasures. Because what I love to eat more than anything in the world is Chinese food and bubble tea (AKA boba in the States!) The reason why these are ‘guilty’ pleasures is because Chinese food tends to be heavy in sodium, MSG, oil and/or carbs. And bubble tea is full of cream and sugar. But there is no way I can eliminate these from my diet. They taste soooo good, this is how I thrive!

Are you more of a bikini or lingerie babe?

Oh this is a tough one. I like to consider myself both. But if I had to choose one over the other, I would say bikini! I feel like bikinis are fun because you associate bikinis with beaches, and beaches with fun! Just imagine, a free soul, running around half naked on a beach – that’s me!

If you could have a special or super power, what will it be?

Teleportation. It would make my life a whole lot easier. I would never have to factor in the time it takes to travel somewhere and I’ll never have to worry about getting lost again! Plus, I can just teleport myself anywhere depending on how I would like to spend my time. Hungry? Teleport myself to a cool restaurant in Asia! Bored? Teleport myself to some exotic beach! Got spare time? Teleport myself to the biggest shopping plaza in the world! Aweeesome.

Which is the lamest or funniest attempt a guy has tried to know you?

Well one time I was at a beach with my girlfriend and we were watching the fireworks together. I had my phone out because I was about to film it on Snapchat. And then this guy comes out of nowhere and just says ‘Hey you should add me on Snapchat.’ Before I can even respond, he took my phone and added himself. Then he gave it back to me and walked away. And I’m left like… ‘??????’

Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Candice. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”? 

Sexy can come in so many different forms, and everyone sees sexiness differently. It can be confident, daring and bold, or subtle, sweet and shy. Sexy can be showing more skin in lingerie, or even covered up in a classy outfit. Sexy can be visually appealing yet it can also be found in someone who’s got brains. Sexy can be in the eye of the beholder as well.
