“Most know me as a ra­dio dee­jay since I started my ca­reer as a full time dee­jay with HotFM and RedFM. Now, I’m a part timer for MixFM. I am an em­cee, so­cial me­dia in­flu­encer, TV host and will soon be act­ing too!”

How do you find time to ex­er­cise?

“It’s true what they say; it all de­pends on what you eat (I won’t say kitchen as I don’t cook). I only have time to go to the gym twice or thrice per week, and those are on the days when I’m free in the morn­ings. I don’t go to the gym dur­ing rush hours; too many peo­ple and too much sweat in one room.”

Your go-to work­out ?

“I’ve to say it’s those three-minute HIIT videos on Youtube by Jor­dan Yeoh. Trust me, they work!”

What’s your ver­sion of a healthy diet?

“I have been learn­ing to be­come a ve­gan in the past month. But I don’t want to go ‘cold turkey’, so I set aside two days for chicken or meat. I make sure that they’re or­ganic. I am do­ing it for my own health and body. I’ve re­ceived flak for this, but I am be­ing real.”

What’s your fit­ness rou­tine like?

“Noth­ing spe­cial; I do a full body work­out in one day. I do HIIT when I’m tour­ing or work­ing in places that has no gym. And, I try to eat the health­i­est I can. Al­ways re­mem­ber; never skip break­fast, I make healthy ones like oats and ba­nanas, be­fore that nasi lemak or roti canai.”

Your favourite place to travel to?

“I’m very pro Asia! Hence it’s Ja­pan and Taipei.”

How do you nor­mally spend your weekend?

“Work­ing. Oth­er­wise, I’m with my fam­ily. Home is where the heart is.”

Your fit­ness mantra?

“There’s no need to com­pete with any­one else but your­self, un­less you’re in a com­pe­ti­tion!”
