It’s scorching out at Bedok Reservoir but Rebecca Lim still would rather spend a day dragon boating in the skin-burning, egg-frying heat than be out at sea in the comforts of a police boat. Did we mention that the actress she plays a police coast guard in the fifth installment of popular Ch 8 police procedural C.L.I.F.?
When we arrive at Bedok Reservoir on this Friday afternoon, where the cast of C.L.I.F. 5 is in the midst of shooting a dragon boat race scene, we spot Rebecca looking tense and keeping mostly to herself in a mini dragon boat. Her PA hovers close by, holding a umbrella to shield the star from the scorching sun in between takes. We figure Rebecca's uneasiness is due to our presence — her manager reminded us not to ask Becks anything about her personal life or social media. The latter we assume has to do with the fuss over how she unfollowed everyone on Instagram a month ago. (P/S: She has since started following 42 people again, including, yes, Ian Fang.)
It turns out we are being too sensitive, and Rebecca’s ashen face is attributed to her being really prone to seasickness. But more on this later.
