What’s up, Churpers! How’s everyone doing on a Friday?
We just celebrated @Netccentric’s 10th Anniversary few evenings back, head over to @nuffnangsg for the full coverage of what went on that magical night 💫
Today, we’ll be featuring Artiste and Entrepreneur, @OngAiLeng, who’s currently travelling around (mainly based in Canada) accompanying her producer hubby and living life to the fullest.
She’s no stranger to the entertainment industry and labels herself as “temporarily retired” as she’s taking a break (without a deadline) from acting and business projects or at least until a good script or interesting business opportunity comes along. For now, she’s happy to be with her hubby 24/7!
So she's been away for awhile now,
What does she miss most about home? 🇸🇬🇲🇾
Definitely the food, though I managed to cook my own curry laksa and chicken rice in Canada.
I cook everyday in Canada, here are some of my creations!
My life in Canada ✌🏼️
One more thing that I miss most about Singapore is the convenience of commuting from one place to another, and that I could do everything at one area. For example, Orchard Road! From hair treatments to facial, mani-pedicures to high tea with friends, watching movies to shopping and to attending my Pilates class! But in Canada, it’s just too big, there’re long drives in between two points
We love her unique fashion sense! So what exactly is #oalstyle?💃🏻
I don’t know what’s my style. Lol. That’s why I named and created a hashtag for myself #oalstyle. Cos my style is like my life, constantly changing, adventurous and eager to try new things. I was not like this in my twenties. Guess back then I dressed to impress and now I dress to have fun!
I travel a lot and I love to observe how people style themselves. With the help of magazines and Instagram, they gave me so many ideas! I used to buy full sets of designer wear, but that will only increase your chance of wearing the same as others. So now, I loooovveeee mixing and matching. Break the look, personalize the look, make it my own style.
For example, I remember there was a year at Star Awards, I got a long tail black and white elegant evening gown, I broke the look with a biker leather jacket and my chrome hearts bracelets and rings.
During my first trip to London 9 years ago, London Fashion Week was going on and I was so inspired. On the streets, there are so many stylish people. Some might have looked a bit overwhelming, but! I came to a conclusion that any style or anything you put on, as long as you are confident and comfortable, that will be your own fashion style. And I appreciate that. Cos to me it has become an art.
Her most memorable shows acted in were...🎭
The first thing that came to my mind would be the first movie that I starred in my life. The movie was 2046, acted alongside Zhang Ziyi and Tony Leung. It was a very small role but I had such a great experience. And I love the costume and styling, I was wearing a 1940s cheongsam.
“Addicted to Love” – the Malaysia and Singapore drama filmed 8 years ago, it was like “Sex and the City” and I was the Carrie Bradshaw. I wore my own clothes, shoes and bags on set and the director of the show is now my husband :p
Lastly, Project W, cos it’s the most recent one and I really had lots of fun with the rest of the casts. We are the W family; Pierre Png, Sheila Sim, Desmond Ng, Charles Lee, Michelle Wong and Priscilla Chan. My character, Ashley, was very stylish too. Yup, that’s how much I love fashion!
She was a spoilt princess 💁🏻
I was the first child in the family and always had what I wanted. Good in studies, sports, singing, dancing, drawing…etc. Super kiasu by nature, my parents never needed to pressure me in anything. As you can tell, I didn’t have many friends when I was a kid.
Lastly, your wishes for Netccentric? 😊
Wow it's been 10 years already! Still young with a long journey ahead! Happy Birthday and may Netccentric be blessed with abundance of excitement, joy and prosperity!!!
We wish Ai Leng all the best for her overseas adventures and we hope you guys are feeling a little inspired too! Hop over to bit.ly/FFongaileng for the full feature where she shares her secret to gorgeous skin, tips on a happy marriage and the ups and downs she faced in life. 😌
