Director Priscilla Ang Geck Geck, 28, is behind Chiobu Collective (www.chiobu. tv), an online platform that creates video content for women.

The website, launched on Sept 1, covers a variety of topics including art, fitness, games and technology as well as fashion.

Ms Ang won the Best Fiction Film award at the Singapore Short Film Festival 2013 with her debut short film Broken Crayon.

She lives in a rented condominium in Sixth Avenue with her boyfriend and two housemates.

When you have a weekend free, what do you do?

I don't have a regular weekend because of film shoots.

When I have a weekend free, I visit my grandparents and my boyfriend's family.

Sometimes, the two of us will catch indie films at The Projector or visit museums.

Which is your favourite restaurant?

Fort by Maison Ikkoku at 5 Cox Terrace. My boyfriend and I celebrated our anniversary there.

The food is yummy and the cocktails are amazing. I think the best thing about the restaurant is the staff, who are friendly and funny.

What are your hobbies?

I paint, run and swim. When I am feeling stressed, I watch a lot of horror films to calm my nerves. It sounds crazy, but it helps.

If you could hang out with anybody for a weekend, who would it be and why?

My niece. She is two years old and so cute and cheeky. But I can hang out with her for only two to three hours each time. It takes a lot of energy to carry her, run after her or even talk to her. She is always asking "why" about every thing, even when I need to go to the toilet. I will probably take her to a trampoline park, so she will not have a chance to ask me so many questions.

If you could go somewhere for a weekend, where would it be and why?

I will want to take my grandparents for a short cruise. My grandmother used to like travelling. After a fall, she has had difficulty walking. I think a short cruise will cheer her up, and it does not require her to do much walking.
