Joanne Peh is not private about her browser history!
“I let my husband [Qi Yuwu] view my Internet browser history. Why not? There’s nothing to hide, unless I’m buying something for him online and I don’t want him to find out. But I don’t think he’s tech savvy enough to even know how to search my Internet history (laughs).”
Carrie Wong is hot for online dating!
“Have I created a fake persona online before? Nope, but I’m thinking of creating one for a dating app. Since Sheila Sim found love online, I think I can give it a try too. It sounds quite fun (laughs). However, ’cos I’m an actress, I don’t think I’d use my real name or photos. If I really click with the person, then I’d reveal my real identity.”
Aloysius Pang deletes friends from Facebook!
“I’m a tech idiot and I have zero friends on Facebook now because I deleted all 5,000 friends since I wasn’t interested in any of their feeds! I use Facebook to keep myself updated with business news and current affairs. I even deleted Xu Bin and my boss Dasmond Koh. My friends know me very well so they weren’t angry when I did that. I’m thinking of unfollowing everyone on my Instagram too, but I haven’t gotten around to doing that as I don’t want fellow artistes to misunderstand me (laughs).”
Jayley Woo pays $350 a month for her data plan!
“I dropped my phone a while back and it’s a little wonky now. I’m now unable to connect to Wifi or Bluetooth, so I’ve been using my data to go online. I signed up for a plan that costs $350 a month but it gives me 36GB of data. It’s impossible to use up the data, so I force myself to watch lots of videos on my phone daily. I think I should change my phone instead. It’ll probably be cheaper!”
Desmond Tan webcammed with a fan!
“The last time I webcammed was when I was in Cambodia. My fans welcomed me at the airport and they used Skype to connect me with another fan. She had gotten into a car accident and couldn’t be there. All her friends in the car were killed, and she broke her legs. She was really affected by it, so I talked to her and comforted her. I could tell that she was very touched even though it was just a five- minute chat.”
Romeo Tan is addicted to his phone!
“I consider myself an early adopter when it comes to technology. I’m addicted to my handphone and use it for everything — Instagram, Facebook, Whatsapp, email, shopping on ASOS, Google Maps, Deliveroo... (laughs). When I was younger, I hung out at Sim Lim Square a lot as I was very interested in computers and gadgets. I even know how to build websites using HTML codes!”
Teddy Tang created a fake online identity!
“I created a fake persona for myself on Internet Relay Chat (IRC) when I was younger. I was quite plump and didn’t get much attention, so I pretended to be the most popular guy in school (laughs). I wanted to see if people would treat me differently, and I have to say that I received a lot more attention!”
