Yvonne Lim Celebrates 46th Birthday; Her First Without Her Kids, Who Are Back In Taiwan

Instead, she was surrounded by her famous pals at a surprise birthday party organised by her husband, Alex Tien.


Taiwan-based Yvonne Lim, who’s in Singapore now to film upcoming Mediacorp drama Strike Gold, updated her Instagram on Sep 26, to share pictures of an advanced birthday celebration her husband, Alex Tien, 42, had planned for her, despite being in a different country.

As you may know, Yvonne and Alex, along with their two kids, seven-year-old son AJ, and five-year-old daughter Alexa, returned to Singapore in August this year, with Yvonne revealing that she’d taken on a role in a new Mediacorp drama.

At that time, she’d shared that while she would be in Singapore for at least three months, her family would have to return to Taiwan for school and work in mid-August.

Unfortunately, this meant that Yvonne, who turns 46 today (Sep 28), will have to spend her birthday away from her kids and husband.

In her Instagram caption, Yvonne mentioned that this is the first birthday she will spend away from her kids since becoming a mother.

Some quality (screen) time.

Thankfully, Alex managed to spring a really sweet surprise on her, by arranging a birthday celebration.

Apart from co-ordinating with Yvonne’s friends in Singapore, Alex also contacted their friends in Taiwan to log into a video-call together during the party.

So sweet!

“Thank you for taking the time to organise this… you knew that it’s been a while since I celebrated my birthday with my good friends, and this time round, you even organised for my good friends in Taipei to tune in via video-call to sing a birthday song for me, and blow out the candles with me,” Yvonne, who was moved to tears during the celebration, wrote on IG.

Celeb friends who were present via video-call included Taiwanese celebs Alyssa Chia and Vivian Hsu, as well as former Mediacorp artiste Jeff Wang, who’s based in Taiwan.

Totally feeling the love.

Over in Singapore, the celeb factor was cranked way up.

Those who were present at the party included Edwin Goh, Yao Wenlong, Aileen Tan, Angela Ang, Phyllis Quek, Elvin Ng, Zoe Tay, Kiki Lim, Romeo Tan, Dennis Chew, Carole Lin, Bonnie Loo, Benjamin Tan, Desmond Tan and Hong Huifang.

And well, we guess everything is probably best summed up by Elvin’s comment on Yvonne’s IG post — "So pretty, young, blessed [and] loved by so many! How do you do it? Happy blessed birthday!”

Happy birthday, Yvonne!
