Akaun Instagram selebriti selalunya merangkumi kehidupan glamour mereka yang dicemburui ramai. Namun, bagi personaliti televisyen, Daphne Iking (@daphneiking), it’s a mix of glam life and the sweetness of the real world!
Bagi pengacara berasal Sabah itu, beliau mementingkan keluarga dan rakan-rakan, tanpa mengabaikan status beliau sebagai penggiat seni. Bagi jelitawan yang sudah lama menjadi household name di industri hiburan tempatan ini, walaupun kerjayanya melibatkan lensa- lensa kamera sebagai pengikut tetap kehidupan sehariannya, beliau akan pastikan akan tugasnya sebagai seorang ibu dan isteri tidak dicampur aduk dengan jadual karier yang padat.
GLAM mengintai kehidupan supermom yang senantiasa bergaya ini!
There was this one time, where I announced the arrival of an extremely high ranking leader into the venue that I was emceeing after I received the cue to start from the organiser. Everyone in the hall stood up cheering and clapping and we waited and waited and waited. He didn't appear! The crowd started to look at me and feeling uncomfortable,I turned to the guy who gave me my "ok" cue,who looked equally sheepish and confused himself. It was a false alarm! I had to tell the crowd to sit down and I felt soooo embarrassed even though,technically, it was not my fault. When I got the cue that he had finally arrived, some of the front row people said out loud "you sure this time?" jokingly. I just smiled, apologised and continued the show as per program. I'm glad the organiser owned up his mistake and told our client that, otherwise, it would have looked pretty bad on me. Now, after that incident, I get Joe (my husband and manager) to give me a double confirmation on my cue to start and normally won't announce the arrival of someone till I actually see the person himself. What's your embarrassing moment? Tell us about yours @DurexMalaysia and hashtag #DurexMY #WhyMaluMalu I challenge @joelebosi, @vanchongvl, @abligh, @atiliaharon and @wyomiatotutsai to share their embarrassing moment with us.
My little boy is not so little anymore. Outgrowing his 3-6months onesies (he's 4months 😥), we decided to get him a tee and short set from @mothercaremalaysia (6-9months) and now he looks like a little man! All of us look so kadus with our small eyes here at An & Mike's garden wedding. I swear I used NO filter here but look how dewy the whole picture is thanks to the magic hour and tea lights hanging from the tree. Gorgeous place for an intimate reception. Can't wait to edit this vlog but first…to complete the crazy backlogs of footages! 😥😥😥 #mothercaremalaysia
I'm at this stage whether to keep my bangs or to let them grow out. Each time a baby comes out from me, I tend to cut my fringe cause I start having postnatal hair loss and this look gives an illusion of having "more hair". Semua tipu. To keep or let it grow back? #myhairisomgere #needtoblowjobeverymorningthishair
PETALING JAYA: A true Malaysian at heart, television personality Daphne Iking believes the beauty of Malaysia lies in both its people and natural beauty. The 38 year-old beauty said these aspects of Malaysia, especially the unity, multiculturalism, and mutual respect amongst its people were worth fighting for. “We are blessed with natural resources and beautiful weather, beautiful tourist spots and wonderful people. “Let us cherish and sustain what we have and appreciate that we live in a war-free zone before it is too late,” she told The Star. Iking said it was the love for Malaysia and its people that led her to support the upcoming Anak-Anak Malaysia Walk, meant to celebrate Malaysia’s diversity and to promote unity and understanding. She said unity and moderation were the most important tools for peace and harmony in this multi-cultural and multi-religious country. “Without moderation and unity, communities are prone to misunderstanding and that’s when disruption happens and harmony is jeopardised,” she added. She said that as of late, there had been divisions among Malaysians due to excessive politicking and there was a need for a campaign such as Anak-anak Malaysia. “Malaysians need to remember how we were before; united, moderate, loving, and supportive of other beliefs and cultures. “I hope this campaign will be able to remind us of those good times and to remind us of what our forefathers fought for in obtaining independence,” she said. She said that as a mother of three young children, she was also playing her part in raising “anak-anak Malaysia” by teaching them to love the country and to respect and understand other faiths and cultures. “Racism and bigotry in children happen because of upbringing and the preconceived ideas they receive from their parents or caregivers and their surroundings,” she said, adding that her children were lucky to grow up in a multicultural family. Asked whether she is a proud Anak Malaysia, Iking answered: “I love being Malaysian!” The Anak-Anak Malaysia Walk 2016, to be held ahead of the National Day celebrations, will kick off at the Bukit Bintang City Centre on Aug 14.
