First of all, thank you! I am Malaysian and grew up in Miri, Sarawak, East Malaysia. The interesting part about me is that I am Kayan mixed Kenyah, the indigenous tribe people from Sarawak. Currently, I’m living in England, United Kingdom. I’m a freelance model but most of the time I participate in fashion week and bridal fashion shows.
I’ve won the 4th runner up of Miss Model of the World Malaysia in 2007. Proud to represent my hometown division and state division as well before competing to national stage. I’ve studied hotel management and I have been working in hospitality industry with hotel, restaurant and oil and gas companies.
What is your fashion style like?
I’m a very simple person. I usually go for basic clothing and my favourite colour is black. You can see me wearing short pants and T-shirt or full black outfit.
Is there any mottos or quotes you live by?
I believe in achieving dreams so I believe that nothing is impossible! My favourite quote is, “be kind, be brave, know your worth and take no shit.”
How much of a foodie are you?
I love food so much! I’m struggling between my love of food and not wanting to get fat. Hahaha!
Do you have any hobbies or interests?
I do have skills in designing and photography editing with photoshop. I love travelling as well and I’m into mixed martial art fitness. Besides that, I’m an advanced open water scuba diver with PADI.
What was the last movie or series you caught and was it any good?
Currently I’m hooked on Peaky Blinders and Son of Anarchy series on Netflix. Yes, the series is absolutely brilliant!
If you could learn anything in this world, what will it be?
That could be about being healthy and mentally strong.
What turns you off on a date?
First impression would be personal hygiene by their appearance.
It is a pleasure to feature you Marilyn. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Someone who has confident in themselves, kindness towards humanity and always being humble. That’s sexy!
