Editor’s note: 8 celebrities, countless interview hours and two months later, we’ve finally come to the end of our very first – and certainly not last – interview series, Toggle Talk. A never-before-attempted project by our team of writers and video producers, we never thought we’d see the light at the end of the tunnel during the making of this extensive series. But survive, we did – even when we had to juggle between multiple roles and double up as our own research writers, photographers, makeup artists and stylists. Like the stories of these celebrities you’ve read and watched, this is our story, a fruit of our labour and the end product of many work hours, and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did making it.

Over and out. Till next time folks!


Special thanks to The St. Regis Singapore, W Singapore – Sentosa Cove, The Westin Singapore and Hotel RE @ Pearl’s Hill for making this dream project happen.
