Q&A: Keith Foo, actor and model

Malaysian actor and model Keith Foo is known for his on point ensembles, sometimes with the help of stylist wife Kim Raymond. At the launch of Giuseppe Zanotti’s Fall/Winter 2016 collection, we took the chance to get to know him a little better.

Do you think Keith is more into a beach or city holiday? Look out for his answer below!

LifestyleAsia (LSA): How did you get into acting, and what do you enjoy about it?

Keith Foo (KF): I first got an acting opportunity when I went to Jakarta to shoot a commercial. I was offered a role and decided to take a leap of faith and as they say, the rest is history.

LSA: What do you do for fun?

KF: I’m currently active in volleyball again. I used to play competitively in school and I’ve been back to working out at the gym doing strength and endurance training for volleyball.

LSA: How would you describe your personal style?

KF: I’d say I have a very casual street style which I sometimes dress up with a fancy pair of shoes.

LSA: Favourite daily accessories?

KF: A nice watch, depending on my mood; some bracelets and my wedding ring.

LSA: Who is your style icon, if any?

KF: David Beckham, he has this effortless style about him.

We love his personalised touch to the jacket.

LSA: Are you a beach or city person?

KF: That one’s easy, it’s always all about the beach for me!

LSA: Favourite holiday destination so far?

KF: Right now that would be Boracay, Philippines.

LSA: Coffee or tea?

KF: Coffee.

LSA: Favourite Malaysian dish?

KF: Asam laksa.

LSA: Do you cook? What’s your go-to dishes to cook?

KF: I do dabble in a bit of cooking when I have to. I usually cook noodles and it always has to be spicy!

LSA: What’s your workout routine?

KF: I hit the gym every morning at 8.30am sharp for one and a half hours, next I get in the sauna for half an hour. I go for volleyball training from 9pm – 11pm on weekends and certain week days.

LSA: What’s your typical daily routine?

KF: My typical day is like — gym, meetings or photo shoots, family time and volleyball training.

Keith chose the Eve grey slip-on sneakers partly because of how easy they are to slip on and off.

LSA: Which shoes did you chose from Giuseppe Zanotti’s Fall/Winter 2016 collection?

KF: I chose the Eve grey slip-on sneakers.

LSA: Why this pair?

KF: They are dark grey, nearly black, which is my go-to colour and they’re really easy to slip on and take off. No hassle at all.

LSA: What do you like about the collection?

KF: The shoes are sleek but edgy at the same time. I like that they are very sports luxe.

LSA: How would you style them, and where would you wear them to?

KF: I would style them with a full black outfit and a fancy jacket or even with a pair of torn jeans and a simple white t-shirt. Always with the help of my wife, of course!

LSA: Complete this. “Shoes are…”

KF: …an expensive necessity that has turned everyone bankrupt. Joking!
