LEE YIK KEAT (@yk)
What would people be surprised to learn about you? I am constantly working and thinking about my next step, so I actually rest very little. Is being different important? Being true to yourself is most important. Do not change for the sake of changing. Favourite time of the day? Blue hour! The most important lesson you have learnt? There is always someone better than you, so never settle for less. The most unusual thing you have photographed? A five-legged dog when I first started out. What are you going to photograph next? Lots of music! And also more street and culture.

What would people be surprised to learn about you? People think that I am an introvert, but I can be quite “nonsense” if you get to know the real me! Is being different important? Being different is good, but being true to yourself is much more important. Favourite time of the day? Midnight – it is calming, and I am most productive then. The most important lesson you have learnt? Be yourself, don’t compare yourself to others. What does your family think of your acting? They are very supportive, but there is also more room for improvement. What is your next role going to be? A tour guide who cannot stop dreaming of becoming a superstar! (Joel is currently filming Jalan Jalan, a Chinese long-form drama series that will debut on October 30).

J. JAI KISHAN (@j.jaikishan)
What would people be surprised to learn about you? My personality may be overwhelming, but I enjoy solitude; maybe that is why I have never been in a relationship. Here’s a secret: I’m on the lookout for my first. Is being different important? Being different is amazing! It is what makes you special. I pride myself on honing my attributes through self-improvement classes. The most important lesson you have learnt? Three life lessons from my dad: don’t ask, don’t get; don’t try, don’t know; a person who fails to plan is a person planning to fail. What makes you laugh? Spontaneous humour or brilliant comebacks. Tell us something funny. Do I look like a clown? [Laughs] Watch one of my shows on Toggle or YouTube, and you will surely be laughing!

YAP XIN DE (@xindeyap)
Influencer & co-founder of Chug Chug
What would people be surprised to learn about you? That I am the chef at Chug Chug! Is being different important? Being different is important because I want to have my own identity. Favourite time of the day? Dinner time. The most important lesson you have learnt? Perseverance. There are bound to be days when you argue with your partners, have bad business, or where you are too tired to continue. You just have to remind yourself the reasons why you started all of this. What does your family think of your cooking? I have never been to culinary school, so my family and friends are my guinea pigs. I think they are 50-50 with my cooking because it is hit or miss most of the time. [Laughs] What’s for dinner? Scallop mentaiko pasta!
