Ling Tan.. name is quite familiar but an International Supermodel, never did ring a bell in my head.
Then it struck me. She was the guest I had attended during my last job at Shangri-La RRR. Ms Tan. the girl with a mat salleh boyfriend. *and her face that time memang look like in the picture below*
That time, drizzling, she came up to our counter with her black bikini asking my colleague to put on her silicone swimming cap. So, susah to put on her head, I had to help.
Learned that she just came down from climbing mount Kinabalu, and she was so weary and worrying a lot about her sore muscle and painful toenails.
I shared my experienced about toenails being blue black and eventually 'tercabut' after climbing the mountain. She freaked out. Then I have quite a hard time on explaining things that later one everything will be alright. Hehe. She is very funny la.~and friendly too.
I find it very amusing also she always need help on tying her bikini strings and putting on her sunscreen. She keep on coming back to us at the counter by the pool for help.

SHE is actually a supermodel based in the Big Apple, signed with Elite Models some more. And she is the first internationally acclaimed Asian model. Her resumes also consist of gracing the runways of Milan, NY and so many fashion hotspots as well as having her face plastered all over magazines doing campaign for famous brands like Gucci, Guess, Emporio Armani and the list goes on. She is also the first Asian model to have a cosmetics deal worldwide...more info here allmalaysia.info
Do you have a model icon? Ling Tan. She was the first local model to gain international recognition. I really admire her. I think she has earned all that through hard work and a great personality. I want to follow in her footsteps.
*Now I know how she got to pay the expensive luxurious room of the Ocean Wing RRR.* hahaha
