SPEED DATING

Photography by Damien Murer


So who is the real Minh? It's time to finally reveal the schizophrenic me! Am I the aloof, serious and cold man in black? The self depreciating mimic and comedian? The man from Zara or the constant promoting wannabe "model/ blogger/stylist"? I've been called many things, everyone has an opinion and to different people I am a different person? Through this very serious in-depth cross examination, you can decide for yourself!

I always have that dilemma when going on a date how much of me should I really show? Nothing better than speed dating to find out who you really are. I am very intrigued  as to which Minh is your favourite! VOTE NOW!



1. THE SHY GUY
As a PR you would never imagine me shy? Like most actors it's just a camouflage to get through the day! But dates send me off the scale... I always tend to get soooo nervous when on a date. And turning up after some "Dutch Courage" is a first date no go! I had a date recently who was so smashed I thought if they need to be drunk to meet me they need to be tanked to get to first base! Doesn't look good for the future! Next speed date please?!?




2. THE TIMELESS CLASSIC: IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE
The classic dream of my Mom is to see her son always dressed like this! 
Most guys in a suit have an additional air of confidence, a swagger and an addtional spring in their step. But is Mom always right?... Does the Korean millionaire look attract the wrong sort... now that's the question?!?


3. THE FASHIONISTA
I'd be lying not to admit this is a big part of me! Fashion addict definitely, fashion victim occasionally! I'm never short of an opinion but if I ever tell you on a date "the most important thing is that you feel comfortable"... You know you got it wrong!!!


4. Mr SELFIE
Oh yes! A self confessed I-phone addict. I've been on dates where my phone is more exciting and sometimes even the food! One date got soo offended when I photographed the plate of salted squid and not them! But the squid was like to die for... They weren't!!!



  
5. THE PILATES INSTRUCTOR
I am a "Born Again" Pilates follower thanks to the fittest woman on earth... my instructor Hanan! You can't take it too seriously when you are upside down, legs akimbo with your arms strapped behind you... "50 Shades of Grey" it's not, but exercise with humour works for me! Only 6 months now and I start to see the first results! I blame those rising testosterone levels for the baseball cap wearing!

  
6. Mr PERFECT
Though I am far from it, it's my favourite look at the moment: a nice well tailored classic white shirt with a black leather jacket. A classic for every man. By the time you can afford a good leather jacket you're probably too old to wear one! Thanks God this is a cheap one! Lol! James Dean was never wrong!!!


7. THE BRANDED BLOGGER
Head to toe product placement sometimes gets in the way of a good look... Even I am a walking advert for Kenzo, it appeals to my inner unleashed tiger! Moschino of course, Marc Stone no brainer, Desigual?...I think I'll drop dead first! Abercrombie & Fitch over my dead body only! Lol



  
8. THE PLAYER
Keep it mean, keep them keen?!? Why when I get bored on a date and decide their not for me they always want to spend the rest of their life with me? Reverse phychology it works but why?!? It cuts both ways...I am always attracted to what I cannot have... You know who you are...


9. Mr DIET COKE
A fun urban myth... all my female colleagues lust after this daydream!!! Whether it's a lawn mowing Daniel Craig or a window washing Zac Effron this image is dedicated to Sandrine and Eva... perhaps you'll re-evaluate your view at work! Enjoy! Lol


10. THE EDGY GEEK
Whilst I don't believe I am in the least bit geeky my best friends disagree!... Geeky chic is so current, and yes I have to wear glasses... I think I'm more Hoxton Art student personally but being Asian, slight of build, tall, I am always going to be liked to something cute in those glasses! I blame Mister Ford!

  6. Hi there,,,Ensure you smell your best.Smells frequently get partner with recollections and on the off chance that you need the memory of a first date with a woman to emerge,then you need to smell good.Dashing on a touch of cologne,not all that much,will give you that tad bit of an edge that you want and need.Best wishes.
