Weekend staycations at hotels are the new norm for people nowadays. A popular choice for many is W Kuala Lumpur which immerses guests in its innovative design, playful luxury, lush greenery and globally renowned cuisine.

As the hotel’s Director of Marketing Communications, Ng Bee Fong is indeed one busy Bee. She takes time off from her hectic schedule to indulge myeppo in the following Q&A….

How have you adapted to life in the new normal?

Well, I have pretty much adapted to the new norm of working from home. It all about being able to adapt to new environments and making the most of it.

What has been the biggest lesson learnt during the pandemic?

Never take things for granted. And I really mean it. In the past, we have been so fixated with chasing after financial gains, career goals and the superficial stuff. Now, given the circumstances most of us are in, I begin to give gratitude, and it feels good!

How do you achieve a work-life balance?

Running or a quick jog after a long day of meetings really perks me up.

What advice would you give to those who want to follow in your footsteps?

Never settle! Always strive for the best in everything you do.

What is your beauty routine like? 

Short and simple! Cleanse, tone and moisturise. 

What are your must-have products?

As I have dry skin, I use Clinique’s Moisture Surge and a few drops of PS Knudsen’s Prickly Pear Seed Oil. I also use L’occitane’s Immortelle Reset Oil-In-Serum to prep my skin daily and before I go to bed. I love the texture and its moisturing properties! For fragrance, I use J’adior EDP for long-lasting freshness all day.

Away from work, what forms of wellness do you indulge in?

Anything that pumps the heart! I enjoy being outdoors, be it running or hiking. Earlier this year, I started meditation through the Headspace app. It’s still a journey that I am embarking on and I look forward to it! 

What are your goals for the rest of 2021?

To stay healthy, happy and taking time off for some self-care.
