After serving his National Service (NS) with the army, Chew went on to Shatec to get a Diploma in Hotel Management as he realised during NS that it is important to further his studies.

Career

Chew became a Chinese teacher in Yumin Primary School and Raffles Girls' Primary School after completing his education. At the same time, he also worked as a part-time DJ at local radio station Y.E.S. 93.3FM. A few years later, he signed on as a full-time DJ with 93.3FM.

In Jan 2005, Chew released his very own music album, containing 9 original songs, all of which are close to his heart.

Chew's big break in television came in 2009 when he portrayed Aunty Lucy in the variety show Paris and Milan (女王本色) which also starred Patricia Mok, Michelle Tay and Ben Yeo. His performance was extremely well received by both young and old, earning him popularity which led to his first ever win (Top 10 Most Popular Male Artistes Award) at the annual Star Awards in 2010. The character's catchphrase "Aiyoh, so embarrassing!" and the swooshing of his head to the right was popular with audiences. "Aunty Lucy" has also featured in films like Aunty Lucy Slam Dunk (Auntie Lucy 也灌篮), It's a Great, Great World (大世界) and Dance Dance Dragon (龙众舞) and the game show We Are Singaporeans. Chew later stated in an interview that the success of Aunty Lucy was a major turning point in his career and the endorsement deals it brought help him clear debts he had incurred from an unsuccessful business venture.

While juggling DJ duties, Chew has also hosted many different programmes ranging from roadshows, variety programmes and game shows and starred in several television series. In recent years, He has also participated in several local productions and films. These include the 《881 The Musical》, in which he played the role of an evil artiste manager.

In February 2013, Chew finalised his plans to move over to Love 97.2FM in mid-March as DJ, after hosting at YES 93.3FM for the past 20 years.
