Hi! I’m a 23 year old Singaporean who is currently studying Human Resources Management in London. I’ve just landed the position of HR intern for CCK – this will be my first HR role despite my degree and I hope to learn the tricks of the trade rather than just studying the theory of it. I have a law degree as well, but career-wise I’m trying to stay away from the legal sector because of the long working hours and high levels of stress. Life is too short for that!
I am an animal lover and wish my tiny flat wasn’t so tiny so that I could have a pet! I resent seeing or knowing of animals suffering. I enjoy second-hand shopping; you will often find me rummaging in charity stores and car boot sales for anything and everything. I love nights out as well – either clubbing with my girlfriends or going to music gigs. On the back of my bedroom door I have a growing list of bands I’ve seen live.
Questions we asked:
CoffeeI’m more of a tea drinker, but if I do drink coffee, it’s with a lot of sugar and a lot of milk.
CakeTriple chocolate cake is the way to go.
Kinks: Interests, Quirks or PeculiaritiesI am very much a clutter hoarder, although I know exactly where everything is in the house. I love to cook and listen to punk music. Attire-wise, nothing too kinky, but I do love wearing corsets under blazers!
What attracted you to Coffee, Cake & Kink? (Why CCK?)I loved the idea of an environment where ‘alternative’ is wholly accepted. The description of the internship online also seemed very hands-on, which enticed me as well – I like getting involved and being able to make a difference.
What were you doing before you joined us?Studying and enjoying the city life in London.
What's your favourite way to wake up and what's the first thing you do?I love waking up warm and snuggly under my pile of teddies (generally how I fall asleep as well)! First thing I do is make a cup of tea and browse through Facebook and the news.
What's your favourite thing to do on a Saturday night?I love a night out with my friends or a movie night in with popcorn and haribo.
What's in your wardrobe?My wardrobe is absolutely crammed with just about everything – dresses, jumpsuits, jeans, skirts, leggings, printed tees, blouses, blazers, jumpers, corsets, a substantial bra collection… (I have a problem with buying clothes.)
What are you reading right now?I’m currently reading back through my favourite fantasy series, The Dresden Files. Much less excitingly, I also have to get through an ever-growing pile of university readings.
What was the last thing you ate that you really shouldn't?I like to cut the fat off bacon and fry that to eat. Last time I did that was probably last week.
When was the last time you cried laughing and why?Watching Gabriel Iglesias’ stand-up comedy on Netflix . He is too funny – I’d recommend his work to anyone looking for a laugh!
What is stashed under your bed/mattress?A drawer full of jumpers and jeans.
Have you got any bad habits? :)Too many!
