Sher­ine Tan

When I see lovers’ names carved in a tree, I don’t think that’s ro­man­tic. I think, ‘who brings a knife on a date?’

Sher­ine Tan hails from Malaysia, but her rea­son for com­ing to Sin­ga­pore, to stay and to work, is as prag­matic as it is Sin­ga­porean. “When it comes to mov­ing to a new place, Sin­ga­pore is the clos­est,” Tan says. Her par­ents, how­ever, are used to their daugh­ter liv­ing apart from them: af­ter sec­ondary school, she stud­ied in an­other Malaysian state. They know she can take care of her­self. Be­sides, Sin­ga­pore af­fords other op­por­tu­ni­ties for Tan. As a pageant vet­eran in her home­town of Pe­nang, she de­cided to give the ones here a go. Since par­tak­ing in FHM Mod­els 2015, The New Paper New Face 2015 and Miss All Na­tions 2014, she shows no signs of let­ting up, but has she ever thought about ven­tur­ing into mod­el­ling? “I never re­ally put my­self out there for that. Pageants, yes, but it’s usu­ally en­ter, try to win, join an­other pageant,” she says. Tan may have the fun­da­men­tals for pos­ing and poise down pat, but feels she’s “too short any­way.” But clearly, that hasn’t stopped her, be­cause last we check, she is now a tal­ent for her friend’s bur­geon­ing mod­el­ling agency, Ab­so­lute Mod­els In­ter­na­tional. Take that, ob­sta­cles.
