Why is Esther Quek Always On Her Phone?

By Ashleigh “Bing” Bingham

1. She’s waiting to meet up with a friend.


2. She’s helping her friend pick out an outfit to wear that night.


3. She’s putting people in their place.


4. She’s calling into work.


5. She’s texting her admirers.


6. She’s catching up with an old friend.


7. She’s keeping up with the gossip.


8. She’s trying to avoid someone.


9. She’s giving out advice.


10. She’s hopelessly flirting with her heartthrob.

  1. Thank you, I almost let out a big laugh at work over the gossip section. If my boss heard he’d want to see what’s funny and then I’d have to explain and that can get a bit you know. :+)

  2. This is a comment on behalf of my partner who told me excitedly via Skype that a cool post about a cool Singaporean was up, but she’s been locked out of her account.

    JENNY & SHANE HAD SEX?? (I am STILL not done with this show.)

    • My life is an endless struggle to balance my love of Autostraddle with my avoidance of L Word spoilers. Needless to say, it’s extremely difficult :P

  3. Thank you for answering this question that I always when looking at pictures of Esther Quek, which is a lot of the time!

  4. This! is amazing! Thank you for the giggles and photos of E.Quek. I wish someone would interview her at home so we can peep into her closets full of fashion awesomeness…

  5. !!!

    This + morning coffee = perfection. I never noticed her ever-present phone before this article though? Too busy swooning, probably. Whoops~
