INTRODUCING... TEAM ELLE

KATE GUEST
Editor-in-Chief

Kate is an Australian journalist with 12 years' experience working for magazines and newspapers in Australia, the UK and Malaysia. She loves burrata, champagne, Iris Murdoch and men in rolled-up shirt sleeves. She hates dangling modifiers, last orders and telephones.

EMMA CHONG
Managing Editor

Emma's spent seven years in the Malaysian publishing industry across print and digital, correcting grammar and writing about shoes. She has a weakness for bad pop music and good fried rice, and favours white dresses whatever the weather or time of day.

SHEILA CHEAH
Art Director

Sheila fell in love with colour when she picked up her first Archie comic as a child, and has now worked in publishing for over nine years. Outside work you'll find her worshipping the sun and sea or warming up to her two cats, Blu and Bagel.

KENNETH LEE
Senior Graphic Designer

Since graduating from university, Kenneth wandered around the KL media industry as a freelancer, until he was somehow taken in by ELLE Malaysia. Now he spends his day daydreaming at his desk (while working hard too). He loves art and scribbling unintelligible stuff every now and then.

GRACE WONG
Beauty Editor

A jill of all trades, Grace has had stints in business and fashion journalism, is a rookie makeup artist, and a one-time publicist and shopgirl. She enjoys AHAs, niacinamide and is more than a little omnivorous with music, #nowplaying: sludge rock, 80s cantopop, Bassekou Kouyate and Carly Rae Jepsen.

FLORENCE SONG
Fashion Writer

Florence believes that there's no such thing as too much cake. She has two true talents: the ability to lucid dream and an unnatural knack for speed-walking. Before joining ELLE Malaysia in her first magazine role, she studied journalism at the University of South Australia. She's overly attached to fictional TV characters.

MEDINA AZALDIN
Editorial Assistant

Medina has a borderline unhealthy obsession with makeup, rose quartz pink and sparkly things. She graduated with a fashion marketing degree, sold clothes and took a job in fashion PR before joining ELLE. Someday, she'd like to own a cat shelter.

ANDREA TIM
Associate Editor, elle.my

A Superwholockian Potterhead who is obsessed with satchels and camomile tea, Andrea loves entertainment news as much as her TARDIS cookie jar. She spends an ungodly amount of time thinking about the wildest things – from how to survive a zombie apocalypse to made-up theories about colour perception.

VERINIA KHOO
Writer, elle.my

Despite being obsessed with puns and weird things, Verinia landed her first job at ELLE after interning for the magazine. She likes Snapchat-ting while wearing her green tea mask and watching Disney classics during her free time. She is also an avid reader of science fiction and crime novels.
