When do you lie and how would we know?
When the truth might hurt, and only if I feel I can get away with it.
Where is your happy space?
At home in front of my computer doing a bit of Photoshop, fixing my latest snapshots of foodie places I’ve just been to with close friends.
Who has had the greatest influence in your life?
My immediate family and some of my closest friends.
Which body part do you wish you could detach and why?
My stomach. Dieting would be so much easier.
What’s the weirdest thing a guest has done at your house?
Someone ate my breakfast and left money for it.
If you had to change your name, what would your new name be?
What ridiculous thing has someone tricked you into believing?
My mother told me I was handsome.
What is something that everyone looks stupid doing?
When someone pretends that they are shy and humble, but they are actually not.
What ridiculous thing has someone tricked you into doing or believing?

If someone asked to be your apprentice and learn all that you know, what would you teach them?
I will teach them everything that I know.
With whom would you most like to be stuck with in a lift?
Three-decade crush Kate Moss. Easy on the eye and she seems like a good laugh.
Loafers with or without socks?
I live in steamy Singapore, so with is the more practical choice. Plus, stripy Paul Smith socks always add a pleasant pop of colour.
What item do you never travel without?
A navy-blue blazer. With that, a man’s good to go for virtually any occasion, barring black tie.
Coffee or tea?
Doppio espresso, per favore.
