Angelyn Wong Chui Ling or better known as Chui Ling by fellow Malaysians has made a substantial imprint of herself in the entertainment industry. Born in Hong Kong but she blend herself very well as Malaysian. Her fans are not only revolved among Chinese but equally fair shares among other races especially those have been following her numerous 'talent stamped' that includes drama series, variety shows, travelogue, radio, commercials and even on interviews. Wow..that was mouthful but yes she is that famous. And currently to add to her portfolio, she is also the 1st Malaysian Ambassador for an exclusive timepiece brand, Maurice Lacroix.
Thanks to Maurice Lacroix, I had the opportunity to have a Les Calsssiques Date+Dinner for 2 with Chui Ling at Opus Bistro last Saturday. The contest was organized from chicliving website..FOLLOW YOUR CONVICTIONS few months ago.
Since it was just a small numbers of guests, the session started at 7pm punctual (which was really good). It was held at Opus Bistro Private Room, Bangsar. After ice breaking, we settled ourselves at the table and dinner were served right after. We started our pre dinner canapes bread crackers with Gorgonzola cheese and honey & Smoked Salmon rolls & Caviar. This week has been a luxurious treatment for me..hehehe

It was really nice chatting with the bubbly host. Never a dull moment with stories and experiences that she shared with us openly.
Quite an interesting background among others that she graduated with majoring in genetic DNA engineering , she actually started her stint in entertainment line by chance. Yes by chance! With her humble claim that she got nothing to do at that point of time, she was approached and she seize the opportunity. An adventure seeker with the love of snowboarding up at the mountain of Japan, it has been an annual escapade as she added. She keeps herself trim with regular exercise, mainly running on treadmill and a healthy diet. With her cute dimple painted on her cheeks everytime she smiles, you might thought she is still in her 20s. As for watches, she loves them lots as she treat it as very personal and intimate.Ssshhh..she has a lot of luxury watches collection and she got a very good deal at the right time from the right person..:P She also shared a thing or two about feng shui as she is also a close friend of the master himself, Joey Yap. Not only friendly but she does inspires a lot of us in her own way.
