Model & Brand Ambassador, Charmaine Chew
Thank you for having me! Well, I’m born in a small town called Alor Star, Kedah. I moved to KL to further my studies at the age 18. I’m now 21 and I’m a model, pianist as well as a student majoring in Public Relations and Business Marketing at Taylor’s University.
What was your experience like competing in the Miss Universe Malaysia 2018?
The experience that I’ve gained joining this beauty pageant was absolutely life-changing. The girls and I worked really hard just to be the best versions of ourselves on that stage and when it was all over there was a lot of hugs, happy tears and well wishes. I’m very grateful to be surrounded by such positive and supportive bunch of beautiful girls. I left the stage with no regrets, knowing that I did my level best and there’s bigger things in life waiting for me to achieve.
Do you have a beauty regime to looking so gorgeous?
Aww that’s very kind of you! For me, fitness is very important, not only to stay fit and have healthy glowy skin, but also for a strong and positive mentality. I go for Muay Thai classes, lift weights and swim at least 3 times a week. Also, I made a vow to myself no matter how tired I am after a night out or after photoshoots, I have to immediately remove my makeup and slap on a facial mask!
Is there any food or drink you can’t live without?
As much as I try to stay healthy, I can never give up eating steamboats and ice-creams. They may not be good for my physical health, but they do make me really happy!
Which is the best compliment you have received?
For me, the best compliments are about noticing what’s on the inside, your character, your empathy, the way you treat people, your work ethic. People hardly notice subtle things like that, which makes it even more precious. I absolutely love it when people around me recognizes the hard work I put into every single thing I commit myself to.
Can you describe a typical day like for yourself?
Well, a typical day for me would be waking up at 7 in the morning, I’ll meditate to clear my mind and then head to class or work. I’ll come back home, hit the gym, spend time with my loved ones and call it a day.
If you could have a super power, what will it be?
I think teleportation would come in handy for me, especially when I’m always on the go. I’d love to go to every part of the world for free, skip traffic jams and arrive on time to class.
What is an ideal first date for you?
Just bring me to a restaurant that serves good steamboat and pamper me with ice-cream right after and honey, you’ll have the key to my heart.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Charmaine. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
For me, being sexy means being really confident in your own skin, owning your outfit and not giving a damn about what other people have to say about you.
