A good news for all,
@andiechen will be attending Hoyu CIELO Hair Play event as a host appearance along with @katepang311 on the 20 October, 1pm at NEX Atrium!
Come on down and join us if you are free! See you~ 😊
A role model is someone you model yourself after. For me, Adrian Pang was the man I road many of my decisions after.⠀
In 2010, I was a newbie in the TV industry and I saw Adrian, then an A-lister with Media Corp TV, left the company to start a career in theatre. I saw him sell his flashy sports car for a tiny Japanese one. That moment changed my life, I started re-evaluating my choices and asking myself what was really important to me.⠀
On the day of this interview, Adrian shared his demons in the most open and honest way. Throughout the interview I kept thinking to myself, how am I deserving of having this man's trust and attention.⠀
This is by far the most sincere, raw and brutal episode in the talk show. I hope it touches you as much as it did me. It's up on youtube, podcast and Spotify.⠀
You are loud and demanding, but you are also beautiful, artistic, sensitive and loving. You have the most expressive mind I've ever seen and I can’t wait to watch you grow up. Someone stop me from spoiling this princess rotten. 😂 #daddysgirl ⠀

I'm 33 this year and I still feel like there is a lot of myself that I don't understand. Why am I so uncomfortable in crowds, why is my default emotion frustration and what fulfills me?⠀
After entering the working world, I realized I started going into auto-pilot and stopped learning about myself.⠀
Breaking that pattern of mindless grinding and giving 2 hours to myself daily really helped me grow. My choice of poison is audio books while exercising.⠀

On our way back from the airport after our lovely couple trip, we got into another argument. It feels like all the effort to keep the marriage fresh and happy was a waste of time.
Spending large amount of time with another human often means negative emotions compounding. So much so, that a single look could start off world war 3.
Thank goodness we slept off our negativity and both realised how silly we were. So Glad this amazing woman is my Wife. #crazybutamazing

I’m flying back to home, flicking through the in-flight programmes and Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown popped up. I have zero interest in travel shows and even less in food ones. But having just heard @joerogan ‘s podcast on the guy and all the news of his passing still in my mind, I decided to give him 10 min of my time.
What the hell! This is the most honest and beautiful show I have watched ever. The man is a genius. Sensitive, observant, well learnt and a true story teller. This guy is the real deal.
This is the kind of honest and raw content I hope I one day can be a part of. @anthonybourdain Thank you for bravely telling your stories and thank you for inspiring this little boy from Singapore to change the world a story at a time.
This post is a bookmark in my career. If you are interested in my journey, read on.
A year ago I set up my own company and got started with social media content creation, although I’ve improved as a producer and an entrepreneur, I felt lost. What the hell am I making these content for? Although I am extremely grateful for the opportunities, I didn’t enjoy most of my advertising work. Even for my original productions, I found myself getting bored even before I got started.
Instagram. The platform has taken over a sizeable chunk of my income as I shifted part of my time from acting to show producing. I use to love sharing on IG, but I realised the love for the medium is fading away. I just wanted to get some pictures up, so I can pacify my followers (sorry guys) and get some client work to feed my family. Don’t get me wrong, I still think that’s an honest job (I only take on brands I believe in). But I was so unfulfilled.
I knew I wanted to be an “influencer”, in it’s true form. A person that shapes the people he touch to ignore social norms and chase their dreams, to challenge them to visit dark, scary places so they truly understand themselves and to remind them to constantly do difficult things, so they understand life is about raising standards. But how can I do that?
I am not successful enough to to preach, I am not eloquent enough to change minds and I am not talented enough to make amazing films to impress.
I realised the key is a 3 letter word- YET. I am not there YET. I have so many flaws and obstacles in front of me, but I am damn proud of the mindset and work discipline I have developed. It might take me 10, 20, 30 years, but I know for certain that I will be working amongst the most talented film makers in the world or I will die trying to earn my place among them.
If you are looking for a celebrity’s high life, I won’t be able to give that to you. But if you have a little patience and you believe what I believe - that men can reach their dreams without shitting on others and that all you need is good old fashion tenacity and passion. Maybe stay a while and walk with me.
Trying to take a proper family photo for once but #adenchen obviously didn’t get the memo. 😏

Michelle Chong is a former Singaporean host and actress who is now the founder of Left Profile, an artiste management and content creation company. We talked to her about her journey from being a TV personality to her venture into the online space, and what her end game is as a media practitioner in Singapore.
Pillow-talk MINI is now on our IGTV! Kids can be brutally honest and yet are the most honest critics. In today's episode, let's hear what Aden and Avery has to say about National Day!
Lost 4 kg and my complexion cleared after not eating for 72 hours. Crazy amount of DMs asking me about #waterfasting and many complaining that they missed parts of my Stories sharing the experience. So I edited the whole journey and it’s now on my IGTV. Click on my profile and then on the IGTV button to watch. Hope it helps ❤️💧

Wefie with #katepang#andiechen halfway during #hairforhope2018 drive... I was quite amused when Kate 姐姐 said to me "好久不见" cos the last time I saw the couple was only a month ago at Our Tampines Hub 😆😁🤭👨👩👧👦
After hanging around Somerset and Scape for a short while, I decided to go to #vivocity instead to see my fave celeb couple #katepang#andiechen as the emcees for the charity drive #hairforhope2018 . The annual event where lots of people volunteer to get their heads shaved for a good cause.
The responsibility of a content creator is not to ride on trends or flame gossips. We are here to do everything we can to make content with value and hopefully make the world a tiny bit better. #notglam @katepang311 .
(ps. Thank you #teamkandie for believing in what we are doing)
Wishing Happy 4th Birthday to #adenchen firstborn of #katepang#andiechen and one of the core members for #kandiefamily prior to the addition of younger sis Avery in June 2016 👨👩👧👦 He could be seen onside his 爸爸 in the opening credits of the Channel 5 variety show #supermumsuperdad (ended run in mid June).
The Force works in mysterious ways. Crimson Star first came to Andie Chen's attention via an article on the South China Morning Post (syndicated from Business Insider Singapore by Jonathan Loh). As he best put it: "If you don't support art from your own home, no one will," and he pledged to our highest tier.
Although the opportunity to properly meet him had not risen, as luck would have it, we bumped into him on our last day at our SCAPE pop-up store and writer Ryan got Andie's autograph on a copy of a blank cover variant of the Crimson Star ashcan.
Once again, thanks to all of you who have supported Crimson Star over these last few months, and we hope to continue have your support as we venture into infinity and beyond!
Right after the Jae fanmeet, a few of us took a Grab ride to Our Tampines Hub to see #katepang#andiechen at some child empowerment talk in the central atrium. We managed to take photo with them (hallo Kate 姐姐 🤣🤣) and before I departed from the place, I took photo with the emcee #charlesstitchwong Singapore Idol season 3 alumna who happened to serve NS with Andie back in the early 2000s. It's been about 5 years since I last saw the master beatboxer (back at the Promontory)
Photos with a few artistes at #thebigdaymovie gala at Capitol Theatre just now...
1) fellow April baby #joyceng , cutie pie #Kannytheng (冰冰 wor!) Jie #adelewong whom I hadn't seen in nearly 2 yrs
2) #andiechen whose birthday had just passed, my "forgot what number" (37th time, i think... for the past 12 years!!) shot with #feliciachin (haha note the photobombs in this pic), #hirzizulkiflie whose birthday is next week, #aileentan whom I saw just yesterday 😄🖐🏻✊🏻
3) missed opportunities: #sheilasim who was in a rush, #carriewong who went in too quickly (but not before having photos with a few lucky 小妹妹s), #zhenggeping#honghuifang#tayying (minus Calvert cos he's still serving NS obviously)... not pictured were Dennis Chew, Richard Low, Liu Lingling, Angela Ang, Chen Xiuhuan, Munah, Jasmine Sim, Alaric Tay, James Seah & Nicole Chang
P.s. woo hoo, just realized that #Amberan got a blue ✔ on her profile 😆🙌🏻

I’m a weirdo. I don’t have many friends and I use to have zero emotions about birthdays or festivals. But since I started sharing my birthday with my Avery aka chilli padi , suddenly 16/6 started becoming a day worth celebrating. Thank you all of my family for accepting me, all of my friends who understands and stands by my life choices and all the amazing well wishes from everyone. Happy Father’s day everyone! And happy birthday my angel. @kandiefamily
