Actor Benz Hui’s Daughter Sells Cakes In S’pore As Covid-19 Ruins Post-Grad Plans
8days.sg drops by their house in Upp Thomson for a taste of her baked goods.
Hong Kong actor Benz Hui’s lovely three-storey terrace house in Upper Thomson (near Yishun), bought in 2017, has served as a cosy second home for his Singaporean wife and daughter’s frequent trips to Singapore. The 70-year-old TVB star met his missus Angeli, 65, during the 1980s in Singapore — where he's currently a permanent resident. The man is known for his iconic roles in shows like Running Out of Time and Line Walker. After the Covid-19 pandemic turned what was meant to be a brief Chinese New Year visit here in January into a seven-month stay, his daughter Charmaine, 23, eventually turned their kitchen into the headquarters for her new home bakery business Bakeaholic — with plans to stay in Singapore for good. She generously opens the family home to the 8days.sg team so we could have a chat and sample her baked goodies.
