The Ch 8 actor may look all alpha male, but this metrosexual star bothers to colour-co-ordinate his holiday clothes.
The Globe-Trotter: Desmond Tan, 26
Flight Pattern: “I’m a ‘follow-my-heart’ type of traveller. I’ll decide what I wanna do only when I arrive at the destination. I’ll get to know some locals to find out more. I’ve found that the locals working at the hotel, or other tourists, usually have better deals than those advertised on brochures. And when it comes to packing for a holiday I colour-co-ordinate the clothes I pack. It’s to make sure that everything matches, so that I don’t have any fashion faux pas in holiday photos that I share with friends!”
Been There Done These: “I’ve been travelling mostly to Asian countries, such as the Philippines, Indonesia and Korea. I find Asia fascinating ‘cos of its rich and vastly different cultures. Also, due to my work, it’s harder for me to take long breaks for trips to countries that are farther. I will always try to steal a few days in between projects for a short getaway to revitalise myself and get inspiration for new roles.”
