Macau-born model Balia Chan Pui-ka leaves for Sydney tomorrow to study English. In fact, her language skills are already quite good, but Chan says that like all things in life, there's always room for improvement. The leggy stunner has already mapped out her bus route to the University of Sydney, where she will study for three weeks, and she has her notebooks and pens packed neatly into her bag. 'After eight years of non-stop modelling, I'm turning my back on Hong Kong,' she says. 'I had job offers that I had to turn down. If I don't take these three weeks off now, I'll never be able to go. I plan to study marketing and management.' While for most models, getting up in the morning is a nightmare, Chan says she enjoys rising early: 'I have no problem getting up at 6.30am. I do it three times a week so I can get to the gym.' Perhaps after this summer, Chan will also set aside time in the morning for some Shakespeare.
