WHO IS NARELLE?

CLEO (Singapore) - - STREET -

Asked no one ever. If you’re a Sin­ga­porean un­der 30, you know who Narelle Kheng is. The 24-year-old is ¼ of lo­cal pop dar­lings The Sam Wil­lows, a fash­ion It Girl, an ac­tress, and co-founder of hip co-work­ing space 21 Moon­stone. She’s also the younger sis­ter of Sin­ga­pore’s In­ter­net Boyfriend Ben­jamin Kheng. We all know who she is. The real ques­tion is: how well do we know her? So­phie Hong sits down with Narelle to find out. t’s 6pm on Fe­bru­ary 14th. I sel­dom ques­tion celebs on their love lives, but it only seemed nat­u­ral to ask in this in­stance. It’s Valen­tine’s Day, af­ter all.

“So, who are you spend­ing it with?” I ask with trep­i­da­tion, fully ex­pect­ing to get shut down, or an answer like “my dogs” or “my fam­ily”. In­stead, with­out skip­ping a beat, Narelle replied: “To­day, no one. My boyfriend’s not here. He’s not from Sin­ga­pore. I’m go­ing to see him re­ally soon, and I’m re­ally ex­cited about that.”

I can hear the gid­di­ness in her voice.
