Ex Mediacorp Actress Apple Hong, 43, Finally Becomes A Singapore Citizen After 22 Years
The KL-born actress moved to Singapore in 2000 after taking part in Star Search.
Yesterday (July 20), Kuala Lumpur-native Apple Hong, 43, took to her Instagram to reveal that she is now a Singapore citizen.
Posting two selfies, the actress beamed from ear-to-ear as she flashed her pink identity card.
She wrote: “From today on, I have a new "identity" card and citizenship! This story started in the year 2000, and by God’s will, little Apple left Malaysia for Singapore. [I] started working here, learnt about life and made close friends, I also started a family and found a home… and experienced a lot. Finally, in 2022, [I’ve] got my pink IC, and from now on, I’ll remain here.”
Apple got her start in showbiz after coming in second in the Malaysia round of Star Search 1999. She went on to star in many local dramas including Love Is All Around (2007), The Little Nonya (2008) and The Queen (2016).
After dating for eight years, Apple tied the knot with her businessman beau in 2017. Apple has since taken a step back from the spotlight and only makes the occasional appearance in dramas.
Of late, she has starred in Wawa Pictures mini-series It’s All Your Fault as well as 2019 Mediacorp drama Daybreak.
