Amanda definitely gets us Goh-ing in the morning
What’s the first thing that springs to mind at the first mention of the east coast? We’re not betting people because it’s technically haram but you’re probably going to say the pristine beaches that pepper its coastline and while you’re not wrong… you’re technically not right either.
Thing is, there’s something; or someone else, from the eastern side of the peninsula that’d cause a springing action and would probably be deemed haram by those not too well-versed with the site.
The new eastern enchantment is Amanda Goh De Enn that hails from Kuantan, Pahang; the largest city in the east that still retains that small-town charm and is just a hop away from the beach. Naturally, Amanda succumbed to the charms of the seaside, spending most of her time there.
As soon as she hit 18, she packed up and headed for the bright lights, congested streets and career-enhancing opportunities of Kuala Lumpur to further her studies. In a story that’s been told one too many times for models, she soon found herself in front of the camera on a permanent basis after a Facebook post kickstarted her foray into modelling.
This beauty with brains just completed her diploma in accounting but is tossing the abacus aside to give fulltime modelling a go after part-timing it during her tertiary years. She’s forgoing numbers right now but just in case you’re wondering, hers are 32B-23-37. That diploma though will come in handy in setting the foundation for the next step in her career; building a beauty and wellness empire.
Seeing that her east coast origins has shaped an appetite in her incredibly toned tummy for food, Amanda spreads her love equally in a typical Malaysian Catch 22 situation; between food hunting and hitting the gym to maintain that delicate balance on both sides.
Speaking of spreading her love, we got down to the questions that beckons journalistic integrity; is she taken? Prepare the tissues… for wiping tears because she’s off the market. Still, if you’re a confident, soulfully expressive, positive, passionate and adventurous guy… that could’ve been you she was spreading her love for. Just saying.
Also, she’s mildly OCD so if you’re ever wondering what to get her for Christmas, “I do have a little bit of OCD so I absolutely despise it when my closet hangers are not the same design and colour.” Just don’t expect your clothes to be hanging off them.
Sliding down sizable portions of food down her throat isn’t all there is to her culinary capers, she’s quite the firecracker in the kitchen. An invitation to sample her dishes was conveyed but just to our personal emails. She’s always game to expand her recipe repertoire and intends to taste all the dishes around world whilst learning to cook them too.
Aside from her cooking skills, another Pulitzer-paving questing we threw at her was if she possessed any other talents apart from eating, cooking and modelling?
“Do perfect leg splits count?” she asked coyly.
“Yes, yes they damn well perfectly do,” was all that we could muster.
On weekends, it’s once again difficult to bet on what she’ll be up to. For starters, betting is haram so we can’t in our good conscience allow you to do so. Secondly though, she’s perfectly content between the opposite ends of the spectrum of catching up on lost sleep or hiking up Everest.
You’re going to need something between a penchant for napping and extreme hiking to stay on her wavelength.
Just like when it comes to most people’s Tinder profiles, it’s difficult to describe themselves. Nonetheless, Amanda was pretty game for it and sees herself in the confident, open-minded and organised mould.
Instinctively of someone born on April Fool’s day, Amanda loves playing pranks aside from playing games with our delicate hearts. She keeps it pretty PG13 here with her favourite though.
“I like to prank my friends on their birthdays. One of my best friend’s birthday was coming up and I asked what she wanted. She told her she wanted a boyfriend. So I got a friend of mine to surprise her with the birthday cake and tell her, “Hey baby, I’m all yours tonight, you can do whatever you want to me,” while blowing her a kiss with a wink.”
“I got a well-deserved “Amanda, you’re are so screwed” look.”
Disclaimer: Blowing the candles on the cake was all the blowing that happened between the birthday girl and Amanda’s friend that day.
Still, every once in a while, the Jedi loses out to the master, and Amanda’s mom dished out a taste of her own medicine one fine day.
“This happened back in school. I napped a lot because who doesn’t? One day I started a nap pretty late in the evening and out of the blue my mom shouted “Girl! It’s time for school! Go get ready!” and in that blurry state I ran like there’s no tomorrow to my room to shower and change. Running downstairs crying at how late I was, everyone just stood there laughing at me.”
Yes, occasionally the player gets played too. Wouldn’t you want to get played by Amanda just once too?
