Contributors We would like to give thanks to those who helped us in making this magazine happen. PATRICK LOH Writer Torn between dancing and fashion writing, Patrick was 18 when he finally came to the decision to make a career in publishing. He first started as a stylist and journalist in the world of fashion and beauty and, six years later, aspires to do more internationally. When he is not typing loudly on his keyboard or flipping clothes from a rack, you can find him in a studio blasting his boombox to the voices of Beyonce and Ludacris. MY FAVOURITE CLASSIC MOVIE: Breakfast At Tiffany’s and The Devil Wears Prada – because it tells me that no matter how bad things are, I will always find a way to make things better. VOONWEI Stylist Known for his quintessentially quirky and unapologetically different styles, Voon Wei has been working with major fashion brands and established magazines for seasonal campaigns, collection lookbooks and fashion editorials since he started in 2010. Voon Wei was previously Newtide’s Guest Fashion Editor and is currently the Contributing Fashion Editor of CLEO Malaysia where he styles and directs major shoots. MY FAVOURITE CLASSIC FASHION: I am a denim addict. I may not have a lot of denim pieces but my denim jackets dominate my wardrobe. It is a timeless fabric that evolves from a worker uniform to luxury pieces favoured by designers. NUR AMYLIA HILDA Writer Amylia is a writer with over four year’s experience in the publishing industry, writing across titles such as ELLE Malaysia, Women’s Health Malaysia and Esquire. She enjoys covering a range of topics from entertainment to motor sports. She also enjoys pub quizzes, including movie quotes in daily conversations and photography. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE CLASSIC ITEM: My old Olympus Trip 35 camera. I still carry it with me whenever I travel and the pictures never turn out how I expect them to which makes it even more exciting! BRIAN FANG Photographer Having arrived in Kuala Lumpur to pursue his photography dreams at the tender age of 19, this Sandakan native is now the founder of the awardwinning M8 Studio, and is regularly sought after by international brands and celebrities for his impeccable work. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE CLASSIC ITEM: I like the old Mini Coopers and Vespa motorbikes because they are from the bygone English era yet still look very Mod. SHEREEN KHOO Feature Writer An alumni of King’s College London majoring in nutrition, Shereen has handled weight management programmes, conducted sports nutrition talks for Nike’s Run Clinic, featured articles in a local cycling magazine and contributed nutritional insights as a guest panellist in Shape magazine. MY FAVOURITE CLASSIC FOOD: Homemade Taufu Fah. I especially love the one made by my mother. I find it a relatively healthy dessert as it is rich in isoflavones, low in fat, high in lean protein and only a moderate amount of syrup is required to give it a satisfying taste.
