Melissa shares photos from her vacation last week, after flying to Hayman Island on Sunday after the Logie Awards.

In one photo, she was sitting comfortably in a wicker chair wearing a devious Alémais loungewear set in a pale green and pink paisley pattern.

Melissa was up for a Gold Logie on Sunday, but lost to Hamish Blake.

Ahead of the event, the MasterChef jury said she would be “lying” if she said she didn’t want to win the top prize.

The Sino-Singaporean food critic said in her column for Zodiac sign that she was proud to know she would be “the first woman of color in the award’s 62-year history” to win.

She was also nominated for the Zilveren Logie for Most Popular Presenter.

“I’ve never really considered TV roles as legitimate jobs because I saw so few people like me doing them in this country,” Melissa wrote in her column.

So here I am, a first nominee for Best Presenter and the coveted Golden Logie. If (and I say IF) I win the gold, I’ll be the first woman of color in the prize’s 62-year history to do so. Isn’t that crazy?’

Melissa went on to explain the cultural significance of her Gold Logie nomination.

“And while I’d be lying if I said I don’t want to win for myself, I think now I really want to win for anyone who could see something of themselves — or who they could be — in me,” she said. †
