Unlock The Meaning Of Love With Our Kydra Ambassadors

Unlock The Meaning Of Love With Our Kydra Ambassadors

Every year on 14 February, people celebrate Valentine's Day with their loved ones with declarations and affirmations of love, affection, quality time and various acts of service. All in all, to honour their love for each other.

This year, we spoke to 3 of our Kydra Ambassadors (as well as their partners!) to uncover stories about their first dates, memorable moments and their unique understanding of love.

1Nicolette [@nicolettelovesyou] & Leonard [@leonardddd]

How They Met

Nicolette & Leonard were colleagues in the same department and eventually worked in the same team. As colleagues, they never thought they’d fall in love with each other. It wasn’t until they started hanging out with other hipster colleagues that they found out they had lots of common interests and the same type of humour!

K: What is love to you?

Leonard: Love is about finding and spending a lifetime with someone who can resonate with you in all aspects of life. She is my best friend, my confidant and the first person I turn to for anything and everything.

Nicolette: I feel it’s being able to connect with that special someone and truly be myself — laughing at the silliest things together and going through the tough times together. Most of all, knowing you’ll always have each other’s back no matter what.

K: What is one memorable moment you share with your partner?

Leonard: Exploring many new things together, including playing a new sport for me — Netball. Nicolette loved playing netball from a young age, and there was once she invited me to play for our company’s netball team together. We grew much closer with all the games we went for!

Nicolette: I’ll never forget that one night we spent hours texting each other, laughing at the same topic over and over again. It went all the way till 3 in the morning. We still talk about that moment until today because it sparked that connection that made us want to know each other better.

K: What did you pick out for your partner this Valentine’s Day?

Leonard: Nicolette is a #1 Kydra fan, and she owns tons of their apparel! I picked out this set to compliment her personality – Nova Midline Bra in Rosebud, Zoom 2” Lined Shorts in Navy and Swift Crop Tank II in Autumn.

She’s an F45 gym junkie, and I know these items will make her look really good and serve her workouts well.

Nicolette: I absolutely love all my Kydra gear and have influenced Leonard to fall in love with the brand too! I chose the colours and designs that I know is just him. He loves running, wearing activewear on a day-to-day basis and minimal designs.

Sports tees like the Apex Curved Hem Tee in Graphite and everyday tees like the Interval Logo Tee in Olive are absolutely up his alley. Can't forget the Bolt 4” Lined Shorts II in Black and Adept 7" Linerless Shorts in Deep Ocean for easy pairing!

2Zhao Chin [@zhaochin] & Stefan [@heyinvertedme]

How They Met

Zhao Chin & Stefan met in school, where they stayed in the same hall. They started off as acquaintances through social activities, but their story truly begun with a piece of kiwi.

Zhao Chin's simple gesture of giving Stefan the fruit in the hall canteen eventually sparked a path to their marriage – a union of love. 

Zhao Chin and Stefan 1

K: What is love to you?

Zhao Chin: Love is caring for one another unconditionally, accepting each other's strengths and flaws, and loving each other for who they are. It is being there for each other through thick and thin, sharing each other’s joy and sadness, lifting each other and being each other's energy bar to reset and recharge so that they can take on any challenges along the way. 

Stef: Love is making sure your other half always has proper shorts to wear. For context, I tend to outwear my home shorts past its lifespan, till there are holes in random places. Zhao Chin will always get new shorts for me, ensuring that I am well-dressed and taken care of. I see love in that. (I included this in my wedding vow to her too!)

K: What is one memorable moment you share with your partner?

Zhao Chin: On our first Valentine’s Day together, Stef hung some locks along the Henderson Wave Bridge with notes attached. Each one contained a different message of love. I was given the keys to these locks and had to unlock them to collect all the notes. Following the path eventually led us to our final activity, a picnic. 

Stef: It was when I officially asked her to be my girlfriend. One would expect a simple ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ but guess what? She told me to stop joking and ran away. I couldn’t fathom what that action meant. I chased after her, and eventually got a YES. Turned out she was just too surprised at first to respond properly. Thankfully, she didn’t run away when I proposed to her 6 years from that day!

K: What did you pick out for your partner this Valentine’s Day?

Zhao Chin: I’ve chosen the Resurge Muscle Tee II in Deep Ocean and Redwood with the Bolt 4” Lined Shorts II in Black and Deep Purple for Stef. 

The Resurge Muscle Tee II is a slim-fit top that will accentuate Stef’s broad shoulders, and the Bolt 4” Lined Shorts II are of the perfect length for him to put on wherever we go!

Stef: She’s someone who practically lives in her sportswear 24/7, so I chose something I know she will wear all the time.

The Dakota Bra in Coastal and the Nova Midline Bra in Rosebud top the list because they are two unique styles she does not own at the moment. I remember how much she raved about her first pair of Kyro Leggings back then, and I couldn't say no to the Kyro Mesh Leggings this time.

Best of all, she looked amazing in her Studio 2” Shorts so I decided that the Zoom 2” Lined Shorts in Bubblegum will be a perfect addition to her wardrobe too! 

3Allison [@alliphua] and Chih Chwen [@chihchwen]

How They Met

Allison and Chwen met through a mutual friend, who sent them a joint email with an excel spreadsheet detailing why they would be a good match for each other! They both took the leap of faith and eventually met up after a few weeks of texting. Ditching the typical “movie-and-dinner” first date template, they ended up having their first date at a hot yoga class.

Chwen (On the class): The experience was brutal! I was trying so hard to impress Allison, but I could not even touch my toes, and my incredibly active sweat glands led to a rather embarrassing puddle of sweat. I definitely wouldn’t recommend it as a first date.

Allison: But he had such a great and cheerful attitude that it was really fun!

Allison and Chih Chwen 1

K: What is love to you?

Chwen: Love to me is not about the grand gestures or the fancy dates. At the granular level, it is about the simple things like Allison sitting through a football match with me (even though my team is terrible right now) or her brewing coffee for me before I wake up. At the macro level, it is about the unwavering support we provide each other through life’s ups and downs at the macro level.

Allison: After being together for such a long time, love is really in the little things. I appreciate him always being there for me, whether it’s bringing my charger to the office when I forget (which is painfully often), supporting me by turning up to yoga classes that I teach or splitting the household chores with me.

K: What is one memorable moment you share with your partner?

Chwen: So many memorable moments flash through my mind! There is a common “adventure” theme in our relationship; I have found a partner to summit Mount Kilimanjaro, scuba dive in the Maldives, snowboard in Mont Blanc and enjoy endless yoga retreats.

I am now a big fan of yoga and proudly report that I can now touch my toes.

Allison: Getting our first puppy together! It was a tough learning curve for us because our dog was really demanding and had high energy, but Chwen is a great dog dad! My favourite memory is of him bringing our baby around in a little bag slung around him like a kangaroo mama.

K: What did you pick out for your partner this Valentine’s Day?

Chwen: Allison and I are both very active and many of the memorable moments that we have shared requires top-notch activewear.

It was an easy-win picking the latest Kydra set of the Dakota Bra in Coastal and Kyro Mesh Leggings in Celestial for her. She is a massive fan of the brand, and she looks absolutely amazing in Kydra wear.

Allison: Comfy and functional activewear is a must, given our active lifestyles! I’m so happy to be able to share my love of Kydra with the love of my life.

I could only pick out the best for Chwen – the Bolt 4" Lined Shorts II in Black and Adept 7" Linerless Shorts in Saddle, topped off with the Resurge Muscle Tee II in White and the Interval Logo Tee in Navy.
