Ris Low won't let weight get her down

Ris Low won't let weight get her down

SINGAPORE - Chubby cheeks. Flabby arms. Thick waistline.

These are the nightmares of most weight-watching women, let alone beauty pageant contestants.

Ris Low, however, boasts all of the above - and she carries her extra pounds with a wide, radiant smile.

The New Paper met the 23-year-old dethroned Miss World Singapore yesterday to talk about her debut lead role in local slasher flick Justice Devil.

Truth be told, she was the plumpest this reporter has seen her over the course of five years.

"I've put on 5kg since January. At my heaviest, I was 68kg and right now, I'm about 65kg," said the 1.72m-tall personality.

Low attributes her visible weight gain to the "late nights" she puts in regularly as part of her new job.

In April, she started work as a full-time waitress-cum-bar staff at T-ARA Cosplay Bar & Cafe, a pub at Boat Quay.

From Facebook pictures she posted showing her on the job, she has dressed up as a nurse, a student and an army officer among other cosplay outfits.

"All the good food there has made me (fat)," she said, adding that her working hours are 4pm to 1am.
