“I haven’t seen you in ages! How have you been?” says Rui En as she slides next to us. She’s right. We actually can’t remember the last time we saw the actress but it was certainly before she took her self-imposed year-long break from work. Seeing Rui En now kinda feels like meeting your friend who has just spent a summer abroad — she has that post-holiday glow and her luscious locks are coiffed in her trademark sideswept ’do. But no, the actress, all breezy and radiant today, hasn’t just returned from a vacation. In fact, quite the opposite. She was just seen on TV in Hello From The Other Side, and she’s now deep in the throes of filming the 130-ep Old is Gold. Which is why 8days.sg is chatting with the ever-eloquent actress today.
