#FeatureFriday: Nicshields – the localised Ang Moh

   Category: Alpha, Feature Friday, Singapore |

Before we first met Nicshelds (Nic) over a cuppa, we were wondering what this Aussie guy is doing in Singapore tweeting about Kpop, our taxi uncles and pratas. A localised Ang Moh maybe?

YES! Born and raised in Perth, Australia, Nic is not the typical Ang Moh we all assume. Having a mum who is half Singaporean and half Dutch, Nic grew up eating Chicken Rice and Malay food just like the rest of us.  Nic frequents coffee shops with friends for some good local coffee and roti prata (psst: Nic is close to quite a few online personalities like Rachell, Peishi and Billy!). Another fun fact is Nic is also a freelance radio DJ so don’t be surprised if he starts talking to you in the voice of a news reporter just for the fun of it.

Wanna know more? Here’s 10 questions we asked him:

1. Pizza or Prata, which do you prefer?
PRATA ALL THE WAY! I worked in a pizza shop for 6 years and I couldn’t eat another slice!!!

2. What’s your worst habit?
Talking about myself and biting my nails… I sometimes do both of them at the same time!

3. Fill in the blank. When I was 15, I was ____.
When I was 15, I was in secondary school… I had a stupid haircut and was fat… So nothing much has changed! Hahaha.. but I never thought I’d be where I am today!

4. If you could wish for anything from a Genie, what would it be?
For eternal health and wealth and for EVERYONE to be happy!

5. Tell us an interesting encounter as an “ang moh” around Singapore!
There’s too many to list! Especially when people think that I’m American! WHAT WHAAT!
My favourite though is when people assume I can’t speak singlish and then I bust some out and they get so surprised!  My other favourite is when people say “Where are you from?” I reply with Jurong! People get so confused!

6. Since you’re a freelance Radio DJ; can you recommend us some music?
I really just push the buttons and make the music play but I really love artists from Singapore. There is so much talent here that is just waiting to be snapped up!
Joie Tan, ShiGGa Shay, Gentle Bones, Siti Zahidah and SO MUCH MORE!

7. Name us a personality that you are following on Twitter/ Facebook?
I don’t follow many celebrities! I prefer to follow everyday people… because I’m kaypoh like that!
But I follow a lot of youtube people and bloggers like @rachelltan_, @speishi, @thejianhaotan, @dee_kosh and @banchothematrep!

8. If you were a twitter hash-tag, what would it be?
#suay

9. If Churpie could speak, what questions would you ask Churpie?

HOW MANY BROTHERS AND SISTERS DO YOU HAVE?!

10. Sum up yourself in 140 characters.
A little bit crazy, loud, shameless, troublesome and caring. That was someone else’s words… not mine!

That’s all for now! If you’re interested in hearing Nicshields on-air, catch him on Boom Radio every Monday and Tuesday from 12 – 3PM. As usual, we always end with ways to stalk our Alpha so go check him out on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Youtube!

See ya Churpers for the next Feature Friday! TGIF!!
