Xin Hui Helder-Eng


Xin brings to Parched all the wisdom of a young woman who has seen life from both the giving and the receiving end of the bar – the latter far exceeding the former – across the city, the region, and beyond.

Today, armed with the soul of a storyteller and an off-the-charts lexicon, she writes and collects stories for our editorial team with a never-before-seen passion, not simply for drinking, but for the outcomes a good drink brings.

Fluent in small, medium, and colossal talk, she is an inevitable celebrity. Not just because of her good nose, so-so face, and great bod, but because when it comes to the joys of drinking, Xin knows just where the good lighting and badass angle is.
