Han Pin is early to meet me at the photo studio. Which comes as no surprise for a purposeful and pragmatic person like him. He arrives with his wife Jane Chuck – who has agreed to be our guest stylist for this cover shoot. “Call me greedy, but I’m interested in a lot of things – constructions, petrol station, auto detailing, fitness,” he says, laughing. “I’m a very number-orientated person and that’s probably because of my full-time corporate job. At the same time, I’m super active, I love music and I love working out. They are what keep me feeling alive, I mean, we all got to find a balance in life.”
But greedy is not something you would associate with Han Pin. He is known as a consummate professional and he likes people to know that being productive and possessing good time management skill are important to him. “I’m the eldest in the family, and I will do anything to give them a good life. I guess making them proud is what drives me to work hard. I look up to my parents a lot, they truly know how to build a strong family – and my life goal is probably to retire at the age of 45,” he says.
Every day’s different for Han Pin, so he tends to plan his day ahead. Although he doesn’t not have fixed working hours, he makes sure that he primes himself for maximum efficiency each day. “On a usual day with nothing special on the calendar, I start my day at the office looking at the accounts and review business plans. Events and workout are often in the evening after I’m done with work. My spin classes are either early in the morning or after working hours on the weekends,” he says.
