April was a pretty buzzy month – Jewel Changi Airport finally opened its doors to the public, and with that came a slew of store openings and brand launches. Amidst the hustle and bustle, I managed to grab a quick five minutes with local ah jie Fann Wong at the opening of The Body Shop’s store at Jewel Changi Airport.

Despite the overwhelming crowd, Fann Wong was poised and unruffled, exuding a sense of quiet confidence and warmth that quickly put me at ease. One thing I quickly discovered while chatting with her manager and PR reps was that Fann Wong is a very busy go-getter with a packed schedule – in fact, the five minutes I’d wrangled with her was a luxury.

Undeterred, I shot a handful of quickfire questions at her – here’s what I learnt about Fann Wong.

What’s your favourite thing about yourself?

My positive attitude towards everything.

And what’s one flaw you’d like to change about yourself?

What do I like to change about myself? That’s a very tough question. I’m actually quite happy about myself. If there’s really one thing I’d like to change about myself, I’d prefer to have fairer skin — I’ve been chasing my son under the sun.

Where’s your next holiday destination?

We’re making plans. We’re thinking of either Bali or Australia, but haven’t decided yet.

What are the five essential beauty products you’ll always bring on vacation?

Definitely moisturiser, be it a lotion or a hydrating mask like the British Rose Mask. And I’ll definitely need to have a lip balm – I always have one.

I’ll also have to have an eye gel, because eyes are the first thing you’ll notice about a person’s face. That’s why it’s very important for me to take care of my eyes.

Also, sunscreen! I really love the Skin Defence spray. During days where I’m filming, I have to put on a lot of makeup, and sometimes I have to start [work] at 5 a.m. So when the sun rises, it’s already too late for me to apply (sunscreen) lotion. So, the spray [that goes on over makeup] is a very good product for me.

What’s your go-to outfit formula on days when you have no fashion inspiration?

A jumpsuit or a romper.
