Talk show host Xiao S surprised by Stef Sun


Out of all the Singaporean entertainers who have appeared on her popular talk show with Kevin Tsai, Mr Con And Ms Csi, Taiwan's Dee Hsu says the one who left the deepest impression is singer Stefanie Sun.

This is partly because Sun has just given birth. Hsu, 34, says: "When I interviewed her, I never thought of her as someone who would get married and have a child. I thought she had a very strong personality and one that was avant-garde and would, hence, resist a more traditional role."

Hsu, who is better known as Xiao S, was in town last Friday to take part in a fashion show for Taiwanese fashion label iROO (pronounced ee-row) at Marina Bay Sands. She has been the brand ambassador for iROO since June this year.

Speaking to Life! after her catwalk jaunt, the hostess who is known for her quick and sharp wit and sense of humour says the key to being a good talk show host is to do one's homework and know what story your guest is going to tell, and then going with the flow.
