WHO IS NARELLE?
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.
