Yvonne Lim is running late. It’s a Wednesday evening sometime in early April and 8days.sg is meeting the actress for dinner at Baba Chews, a Peranakan restaurant in Katong. But an hour before we meet, she drops us a text, apologising in advance for her tardiness because of a delay in filming. We have no issue waiting for Yvonne. In fact, we’ve been waiting a long time for her. To be back on screen again, we mean. In case you haven’t heard, the 42-year-old star is making her TV comeback in new Ch 8 drama While You Were Away after an almost five-year hiatus. And during those years that she, um, was away, she said goodbye to acting, moved to Taiwan and became a mum twice over — AJ and Alexa, her two kids with her Taiwanese former pop star hubby Alex Tien, are now four and two respectively.
