Clinton Tan, 28, Lawyer
What is your biggest life goal right now?
Having just finished Elon Musk’s biography, I’d like to emulate his “go hard or go home” attitude. I want to be at the top of my game; the guy who pops into mind when people think of intelligent, capable and successful lawyers.
In your yearbook, what would’ve been your superlative?
If I’m feeling stupid: Before you criticise someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way you are one mile away from then and you have their shoes.
If I’m feeling serious: This day we fight. (That’s actually what my tattoo says in Elvish although it kinda looks like ‘big penis mahbitchez’)
Favourite things to do on a weekend?
A good brunch, hit the gym, chill at the dog park, cook a good dinner together with music in the background and then a nice movie on the couch under a blanket.
What’s the most spontaneous thing you’ve done for your partner?
Took a 5 hours bus to surprise her when we were in uni in the UK.
What would your 15-year old self be most proud of you now?
Probably that I’m no longer fat. I was like Doraemon back then. That said, my 15 year old self would be proud of the fact that I get up every day pushing myself as hard as I can.
If you could reincarnate into a food, what would it be?
A steak. I’d eat myself. Best suicide ever. Either that or a sashimi set. Also cos I’d eat myself.
