Lady First SG Episode 3: The Male Revolution

lady first sg episode 3

Are Singaporean men “oily” and “sloppy” like Pauline Lan said last year? According to this episode, yes they are! But help has arrived in the form of gurus Wu Yi Lin and Keith Png!

Yi Lin thinks there is a lot of room for improvement while Keith believes that men go to the gym and get good physiques but wear the wrong clothes after.

Kelly did a survey (at Bugis+) and asked the ladies what they disliked about the way Singaporean men dressed. Some complaints included the pairing of jeans or pants with slippers, an evident lack of effort in dressing up, polo shirts with the collars propped up (ah beng style), long hair, greasy hair, looking sweaty.

And the male respondents said they: live nearby so they felt no need to dress up, drove to this location and hence would not have met many people along the way, were just hanging out with buddies, prioritize comfort over style, chose outfits which kept them comfortable in Singapore’s hot weather.

Having the 5 male guests on the show was such a welcome surprise!

There was Yew Kuang (a director) who was carrying a backpack in a less-than-glam fashion, Daren who wore an outfit with sleeves which were too short plus pant legs which were not rolled up properly, Li Ming Lun was sporting a weird-looking fringe, Jeremy was decked out like a Christmas tree with way too many accessories, and Jason (last year’s winner of Manhunt just sported a really strange hairdo.

(1) Yi Lin thinks Ming Lun posed the biggest challenge of all. He has a flat back-of-head plus he had a couple of bald spots, with most of his hair growing at the back of his head.

Yi Lin used the Phytostim thinning hair Fortifying Spray ($94.40 after discount) and the Wella Ocean Spritz Beach Texture Spray on Ming Lun.

She recommends botanical therapy for its volumizing effect on hair, leave-in treatment, and scalp treatment.

(2) Daren flaunted his pearlie whites and shared that he uses Pearlie White Blanc Perfect Professional Whitening Toothpaste (check out the giveaway at the end of this post!)

However, Keith said that while having clean and white teeth is a plus, Daren should also avoid wearing tight outfits with floral prints, as they give him a ‘playboy’ and not-too-sincere vibe.

Pointers:

  • Wear clothes in the right size. Your outfit should not be too tight.
  • If you are muscular, your choice of top should be made from stretchable fabric. Use layering of clothes and do a mix-and-match. Wear a summer jacket made of light, breathable fabric, especially in Singapore’s hot weather.
  • Wear ankle socks with loafers.

(3) Yi Lin commented that Jason has a rather big head (when taking into consideration his sloping shoulders).

She added some curls to his hair then used a matte finish product

(4) For Jeremy, the ladies’ team felt he was wearing ugly underwear, while Keith thought he should not carry too many items in his pockets (and should carry a bag instead).

Candyce recommends Triumph HOM Men’s underwear – “made of sensitive polyamide microfibre – an exceptional material preventing overheating and allowing the skin to breathe – or in elastane cotton for cotton fans.”

Probably the sexiest pair she brought:

Keith says the trick to layering bracelets is to “focus on the tone”. He also recommended studded shoes from Dr. Martens.

Keith also made Jeremy wear a hot pink cap and a scarf around his hips.

(5) For director Yew Kwang, Yi Lin brushed his hair towards the back of his head, used a non-greasy styling product to add volume to his hair by massaging the product to his hair roots.
