A series of sorts, exploring different cities, around the globe, through the lens of some of our favourite BTV people!

BTV CITY GUIDE 01:

CRUISING THROUGH HONG KONG WITH KATY CHOW

​Meet Katy Chow, a powerhouse of talent and ambition, whose diverse array of occupations will easily blow your mind. A model, TV host, actress, creative designer and museum educator, there’s nothing this girl can’t do.

We had the pleasure of catching her amidst her busy schedule in the beautiful city of Hong Kong. We got some insider tips, some of her favourite hidden gems and personal anecdotes that offer a quick peek into her life in Hong Kong.

When asked how she juggles it all. Well, according to Katy, it’s all about embracing it all and “going with the flow”!

Spotted: The Crunch Carryall in Hot Pink outside m+ museum.

Q&A WITH KATY CHOW

What’s the best part of your job?

I love the variety of my work where I encounter a lot of fun experiences and meet different kinds of people. The pure bliss of having freedom and work-life balance doesn’t make work feel like work, instead, something I truly enjoy.

Describe a perfect day for you.

My ideal day starts with a quick breakfast, along with a classic milk tea from 恆香 Heng Heung. The bulk of my day is usually spent at modelling jobs. Afterwards, I’ll grab a cup of coffee and chill out with some friends. I’ll then usually end my day with a comforting homemade hotpot dinner!

Name 05 things you can’t live without.

Fresh fries, my cat, Nala, milk tea and my BTV Crunch Carryall!

Katy wears the Relaxed Striped Shirt in Mustard,
Unisex Denim Utility Jumpsuit in Washed Black and carries the Crunch Carryall 01 in Iris.

Where would you bring your Crunch Carryall to?

EVERYWHERE! Work, travel, date night—it’s such a handy accessory, it’s been through all kinds of days with me.
