Neue (@whatsneue) is embarking on a completely new and exciting form of content called “What’s Neue from 9 to 5”.

In this new segment, 9 questions would be about people’s opinion on general and everyday things, while the last 5 questions would be fairly chill and more tongue in cheek.

Today, Neue will be chatting with Izzul (@iammontiiii).

The Tough 9’ers:

1. Describe your ultimate breakfast.

3. What was your first mobile phone?

Nokia 3210! The brick! Ahaha!

4. Describe your photography style?

Landscape & Documentary.

5. If you could go back in time, which decade or period would it be?

To the 60’s or 70’s. I’d travel back to England so that I could be the 5th member of the Beatles! Imagine how cool that’d be!

6. How do you deal with toxic people?

Introduce them to another group of toxic people, and in doing so, they would hopefully do some self reflection. We can only hope that they would change for the better.

7. What makes a man masculine?

Being emotionally strong! Being able to stand up for yourself. Fearing nothing. At the end of the day, it’s not all about the muscles! ?

8. What has been your most iconic moment of 2018?

Seeing my huge face at the Departure Hall of Brunei International Airport! Say what?!!

9. What’s the best life hack that never fails?

I always do this whenever I buy a can of fizzy drink. I would tap at the top of the can before opening it. In doing so, it becomes less gassy. I would twist the tab around and put a straw through it … This prevents the straw from rising up. Life hacks are awesome!

The Easy 5’ers:

1. What’s your go-to Karaoke song and why?

“I Want It That Way” by Backstreet Boys.

Why? Because it was hands down one of the best songs I listened to growing up.

Plus … I had a “Nick Carter” hair cut back! Haha!

2. What is your love-hate song?

Lou Bega “Mambo No.5”! This song was without a doubt annoying!

But man! You just couldn’t get that tune outta your head, especially once you start singing: “One, two, three, four, five … Everybody in the car, so come on, let’s ride!”

Great … just great … Now I can’t get this song outta my head again! Argh!!! Why did you ask me this question?! Haha!!

3. Name one of your perfumes with a memory attached to it.

Diesel Fuel for Life.

Why, you ask? Well, I remember spending my last few dollars on this perfume while browsing at a duty-free shop at an airport while waiting to catch a flight back to Brunei.

The funny this was I knew if I bought the perfume I would be FLAT BROKE for about 2 weeks … at least until I got my next pay cheque.

You’re probably asking yourself why on earth did I still buy it.

I don’t blame you.

Well, it was because the saleslady who was promoting the perfume to me was pretty. And I bought it out of the kindness of my heart, as I wanted her to get some commission from the sale. ?

It’s been four years and guess what … I still have a quarter of the bottle left! Haha!

4. We are fast approaching 2019. Have you achieved your 2018 New Year’s resolution?

I must be honest … No! Haha!

5. What’s your 2019 New Year’s resolution?

I have to be honest again … It would have to be 2018 New Year’s resolution! ?

What was my New Year’s resoultion for 2018, you ask?

Well … it was 2017 New Year’s resolution!

I should really STOP MAKING New Year’s resolutions! ?
