#18 Of Scams, Frauds and Catfish Tales
We asked you to submit your biggest “life-scam” stories and you delivered…unfortunately.
In this episode of Head Over Heels, we dive into stories about scams, frauds and CATFISHING. Malaysians are no strangers to scams, spams and frauds. In fact, according to statistics from the Royal Malaysia Police, 5,218 scam cases were reported between January to October 2020, with a total loss of RM 256 million from its victims. Along with our humorous guests, Joseph Lee and Natalie Chai, we discuss and dissect into everything “SCAM” related; from WhatsApp Scams to Romance Scams, you’re going to be tuning into all the tea.
It’s intimate, it’s real, it's Head Over Heels.

#17 Finding Your Definition of Great, Managing Guilt & Expectations and The Malaysian Work Culture (ft. Jenn Low)
If we’re being really honest, we’d say you should dive into this episode blind. Get yourself a cup of coffee, tea (or tequila, your choice), and settle down because you are not ready for the wisdom pool you’re about to dive into.
In this episode of Head Over Heels, we invite the founder of Wanderlust + Co, Jenn Low, to discuss…almost everything. Tune in as we dive into topics that range from managing guilt, expectations, and comparison, to shedding light on motherhood, problems we find in Malaysian work culture, as well as finding joy in our individual journeys.

#13 Speaking Up Against Sexual Harassment, Online Sexual Abuse & Coming Forward With Our Stories (ft. Women's Aid Organisation)
Trigger Warning: Before you dive into the episode, we just wanted to let you know that this episode may be sensitive and triggering to some of our viewers. This podcast episode revolves around topics that include sexual harassment and sexual abuse. Please know that we stand with you, we hear you, and we support you.
It took us a lot of courage to get to this episode, and we’re going, to be honest, it’s not an easy one to sit through. For centuries, we have heard stories of women getting sexually assaulted, harassed and abused again and again. It breaks out hearts to know that there are so many women out there, still afraid to tell their stories and some are unable to get the support that they deserve.
In this episode of Head Over Heels, we invited guest-host Lez Ann and welcomed our first collaboration episode with the Women’s Aid Organisation (WAO) in conjunction with their #GirlsTakeOver Campaign, a 16 Days of Activism Against Violence. We spoke to a 14-year-old victim of sexual harassment online and Gaayathrey, the Capacity Building Officer from WAO which focuses on Girls Empowerment Programmes.
The intention of this episode is to bring awareness to this issue, and while devastatingly, we may not see the actual change right now, we want to be able to equip our women and girls the knowledge and support they deserve.
It’s intimate, it’s real, it’s Head Over Heels.
