In Prestige Online’s “Getting to Know” series, we ask our favourite personalities what they’re like outside of work — and get a little more personal.
If you live in Hong Kong, chances are you’ve seen Malaysian model Angie Ng at the hottest fashion parties, in ads at MTR stations, on television and maybe even in your gym studio — she’s one of the faces of Lululemon and also a trainer at boutique boxing gym Lights/Out). Between shoots and training, we caught a quick moment to find out what Ng is really like when she’s not in front of the camera.
What’s your normal weekend like?
I usually go to the gym and do a class, and then teach boxing on Saturdays. That’s a chill weekend for me. I’ll also hang out with my loved ones and friends.
What’s on your playlist?
I’m obsessed with “Old Town Road” by Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus. I love the swagger tone with the hip-hop edge.
What would you normally order at a bar?
I don’t drink much so I usually really do get water. But if I’m feeling it, I love sour cocktails or plum wine.
What is a favourite pastime of yours?
Naps and boxing.
Tell us something not many people know about you.
I’m really into tap dancing. I’ve been dancing since I was young — I did modern ballet but my favourite is tap dancing. I love the beats and just the swag of tapping away. There’s so much joy in it!
Who’s the last person you called?
James, my boo. We talk to each other almost every day at lunch time.
What was the last meal you had?
Soup and dim sum! I love me some hearty soups and Chinese food.
Show us a recent photo of you!
What’s your guilty pleasure?
This changes from time to time but right now it’s Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
Upcoming travel plans?
Somewhere tropical! Bali maybe, and then a trip to Europe in the summer.
Describe your perfect Friday night.
I am loving my home time these days … dinner, sweats and movies.
Name one beauty item that you can’t live without.
A good deep cleanser. With my work, I have makeup on all the time and it’s so important to clean the skin thoroughly after a long day with makeup. The pollution doesn’t help, either.
Tell us one thing that’s on your bucket list.
To go on an Africam safari. I want to see natural beauty that the world has to offer!
