Hi! My name is Alvy! I create content on social media and I also do wellness coaching!
2. Your Instagram pictures has gained popularity with fashion and make-up related content, what would you say inspires your day-to-day outfits and make-up looks?
Pinterest & Tik Tok. Ahah! I like exploring different styles, and honestly my fashion isn’t so unique, I just wear whatever that comforts me and makes me feel confident!
3. What is it like being a content creator and an Influencer in this day and age?
I love being one! Because i’m able to create content with brands I love! However, it can be quite challenging when you’re amongst other talented content creators as well, you need to stand out!
4. What is the day-to-day life of a content creator like yourself?
Surprisingly, i’m not always on social media. I take my mornings very seriously and have a little “me” time, basically working out, meditating, and all that. Next, I’ll reply enquiries, emails, and work on my business. When I have social media campaigns, i’ll draft out ideas and work on it as well. And if I do have spare time, I make TikTok videos!
5. Speaking of contents, your TikTok has blown up! With quirky, hilarious, and relatable videos that makes us love you even more! What inspires your TikTok content?

Thank you! That’s really sweet! Honestly, i have no idea, that is what I love about TikTok, you just whip out your phone, do literally anything and people find it entertaining, but I think some of my viral ones are inspired by personal experiences. And sometimes I just make trends that I see on TikTok!
6. What got you into making TikTok videos?
My bestfriend got me into it, because she felt that I was more of a TikTok person because of my personality, it shines through more on videos, I didn’t want to do it at first, but I got bored and decided to give it a try, I didn’t think I would have garnered followers though!
7. A TikTok video of yours where you speak about Malaysian drivers, has gone viral! With massive retweets shared on Twitter and an insane number of views on TikTok! What do you think made the video such a success?
@missalvy_what do i call this character of mine 😂 alvylian? suggest names pls! ##fyp ##foryoupage ##foryou♬ original sound – ALVY ☾
I think because people find it’s quite relatable, and I was really angry at that time because of some Malaysian drivers! Haha!
8. Do you have a name for the character that you portrayed in that video? If so, what inspired the character?
Aunty Lianvy & Missalvy (me) I usually use 3rd person to call myself haha! Honestly, I never thought of making it as a character until my first viral video. My followers commented saying I sounded like an “Aunty” or an “ah lian” because of my blonde hair then, so i thought of just merging it into becoming Aunty Lianvy. Missalvy is just me being pretty, vain and having this sexual tension. Very funny, because sometimes I attract both genders! Haha!
I always have all these different personalities and accent in me that comes out during different times in real occasion, and I usually have an Aunty personality when I’m angry. So, Aunty Lianvy happened. So, it didn’t felt like I forced it out, it just happened.
9. On Your YouTube channel, a very informative video where you speak about plastic surgery, a topic that many in Malaysia shy away from discussing, do you think it is an important topic for more public figures to talk about online?
Hmm, this is in a grey area zone! I feel like it is really up to them whether they’re comfortable talking about it, after all it is something personal to each individual. But I personally don’t think plastic surgery is a bad thing, I just want to end the stigma around it using my personal experience, and I have always been transparent about everything I do online instead of hiding it.
10. Lastly, we are a few months away from 2020! Do you have any last-minute achievements you’d want to achieve before the year ends?
hmm, this is hard because I felt like we didn’t do much this year. This is really far fetched, 1 million followers on tik tik maybe? Haha! And oh, embarking in the acting industry!
