Keeping fit is important while traveling: Joey Ching How

Fashion you can buy, but style you possess. The key to style is learning who you are, which takes years. There’s no how-to road map to style. It’s about self expression and, above all, attitude.” —Iris Apfel

DutyFreeList in conversation with fitness enthusiast and fashion and travel blogger, Joey Ching How.

Your Instagram shows that 2018 was a splendid year for you. How would you describe it?

I would describe 2018 as a year a self-learning and discovery. It was the first time I travelled outside of Asia/Australia and sat on a 15 hours plane to Paris and London. My butt was sore, but the trip really opened my eyes and further fuelled my wanderlust (is this still a trendy word?) to travel as often as I can.

How do you handle fashion, fitness and travel at ease?

They are all a way of life for me, so creating contents on them come naturally! I used to balk at people who go to the gym while on a trip – time is already so precious when you’re on a trip, why waste it pumping iron and running on treadmills? It was only recently that I realized that I need to keep myself fit in order to travel more.

Jet-lags are tough to deal with, what is your resort in those situations.

If I am expecting jet-lag, I would keep my itinerary light for the first 3 days. I would also plan my attractions to be near my hotel so that I can always head back and rest.

What are the top style statements you wish to create for your followers in 2019.

How to master the art of layering. It’s one of the best way to stay comfortable and look good no matter the season. It also provides one with more styles to play with using the existing wardrobe. Buy less, but buy better. It also helps to save the environment!

Which is that one destination you want to visit again especially for the cuisine.


Vietnam! Their cuisines are regarded by some doctors as one of the most healthy and balanced in the world! Their traditional food, like their pho, usually comes with a massive side plate of herbs, which adds flavour to the dish without all the additional salt or grease you would find in other Asian dishes.
