1. I am best known to my teammates for… My sarcastic sense of humour that only a select few can comprehend

2. My lethal weapon on the netball court is… My strength and strong takes. 

3. In my spare time I like to… Perfect my dance moves (that no one has seen or ever will), play the guitar and utilize my camera.

4. My inspiration to continue to excel in netball comes from… My desire to achieve greatness for my country and my fear of giving up the things I’m good at and the bonds I’ve made with people I’ve trained and competed with. 

5. If I could be a celebrity for one day, I would be… And why A day’s too short to do anything impactful besides having a good time. So I’ll probably pick a famous DJ like.. Kygo? He has some sort of anonymity and he looks like he knows how to have a good time. A famous stage name but a not so famous face also means, no paparazzi? 

6. My match day preparation includes… Drinking LOTS of water (dehydration causes fatigue to set in very quickly), and having a good carbo-loaded meal the night before. 

7. If you won 1 million dollars, what would you do with it… EASY! First, I’ll cash it out in small denominations, so I can live out my fantasy of throwing wads of cash into the sky to “make it rain”. Once I’ve retrieved them back, I’ll bless my loved ones with big ang paos, invest it in some good stocks and live on the dividend payouts for the rest of my life whilst traveling the world, buy a flat in Tiong Bahru (my family members may occupy it while I travel the world), and give to a charity of my choice.

8. The thing I look forward to most about Singapore is… The short commute, the food and strangely, the warm and humid weather! It’s nice to be overseas once in a while, but.. This is home, truly, where I know I must be (You sang along didn’t you?) – Despite the countless complaints from me about the sweltering heat.
