I hate to share this, but for the sake of public humour I will. At the age of six, I arrived in Hong Kong and was introduced to Sailor Moon. During the Christmas of '93, I purchased a Sailor Moon outfit from Toys 'R' Us. It came with gloves and, of course, the famous wand. The outfit fascinated me for about a week, until I realised that I was the odd one out.

My worst outfit, fortunately, wasn't my fault. I was in a drama production of A Midsummer Night's Dream, as the fairy Cobwebs. Fairies are usually pink and beautiful. I was certainly pink - in an exercise leotard and with drawn-on eyebrows that extended to my hairline. Suffice to say, I never participated in a drama again.

I'm not very dress conscious, but I always manage to keep myself up-to-date with the latest trends and styles. But I believe it's important to put comfort over style. That said, the worst outfit I've ever worn was the outfit in which I felt most uncomfortable. My theory is that if you don't feel good in the clothes you wear, you don't look good in them, either.

Our school organised an outdoor camp on the outskirts of Hong Kong Island. On the first night, we had a camp fire party. I rushed towards the camp fire wearing my best dress, but didn't see the puddle ahead of me. I skidded and fell into it and spoiled my dress by getting it covered with mud. As the lodgings were far away, I couldn't go back to change my clothes and had to attend the party wearing the muddied dress.

One day, I decided to go to the extreme before heading out to a carnival. I wore a neon green long-sleeved shirt under an orange T-shirt. I topped it off with a light blue hat. For the bottom half, I went with red sweatpants, long socks and sandals. That day, tonnes of girls checked me out. My advice: wear rainbow-coloured clothing.

As a member of my school's Student Council last year, I was urged to dress up as an alien for Extraterrestrial Day. I spent the day with tin foil on my head that was fashioned into a helmet with antennas. I wore an ugly green shirt and a silver windbreaker. Worse yet, I had 'alien' designs drawn all over my face.

My school's winter uniform is bad enough. We have to wear a tie and tuck our shirts in. During Casual Day last year, I was about the only one who forgot about the event. I went to school and stood out from everyone else because I was wearing my uniform. How embarrassing!
