After five months and countless video calls, Taiwanese singer-actress Vivian Hsu and her Singapore-based husband, businessman Sean Lee are finally going to be reunited, according to a post Vivian made on Sunday (Jun 26).
The 45-year-old star, who tied the knot with Sean in 2014, often shuttles between Taiwan and Singapore to fulfil her work and family obligations. However, no thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, Vivian had been unable to return to Singapore. The last time she was here was in February, before Singapore and Taiwan tightened their travel restrictions.
Vivian shared that the longest she and Sean have been separated ever since tying the knot was a mere two months, which meant that this five-month-wait has been excruciating for her. She eventually resorted to asking Sean to mail over two of his T-shirts, along with some of the daily necessities their three-year-old son, Dalton, needed.
“After receiving the shirts, I immediately wore them, ‘cos it made me feel like [Sean] was right there by my side,” Vivian revealed.
As soon as both Taiwan and Singapore eased their travel restrictions, Vivian immediately started making arrangements to fly over with Dalton.
On July 26, the mother-son duo made the trip over, decked out in their own anti-COVID hazmat outfits. Although they have to be quarantined for 14 days after they land, Vivian is still in high spirits.
“We'll take good care of ourselves, so as to not let you guys worry! Wishing for us, and everyone else to stay safe,” she wrote.
Vivian's fans and friends immediately rushed to leave comments wishing the singer-actress and her son a safe flight.
"It's been hard on you, [hope] everything goes well," Taiwanese actress Ruby Lin commented. Celebs like Taiwanese singer Waa Wei and Taiwanese actor Cheng Jen-Shuo also left similar comments, wishing Vivian a smooth journey.
According to reports, Vivian will be staying in Singapore for the next month or so. Before leaving, however, she made sure to finish preparations for her latest song, which will be released in August.
“I’ll miss everyone [in Taiwan], but although I won’t be in Taipei in August, I’ll leave my new song! My music will accompany everyone [in my absence],” wrote Vivian.
In 2018, Vivian told reporters that her favourite place in Singapore is the "wet market" so we guess that's where she'll be headed once she completes her quarantine.
