In a little over a month’s time, Rui En will be busy crunching scripts and prepping herself for her brand new TV project. But before she delves into her soul reaper role for Channel 8 drama series, Yin Cuo Yang Cha (阴错阳差, English title to be confirmed), the actress spent a day painting with members from her official fanclub, RBKD.

The charity project for an unnamed VWO (Voluntary Welfare Organisation) saw the group sprucing up a revision room as part of RBKD's 10th anniversary celebrations. In photos shared with the media, Rui En was seen on all fours, as she joined her members in painting every nook and cranny of the room. 

They repainted the walls in blue ombré—a task they learned was “more challenging” than “single colour painting”—and painted inspirational quotes such as ‘The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all’ and ‘Tough times don’t last, tough people do’ on the walls.

According to RBKD, the 37-year-old had specially requested for them to do this activity before filming kicks off in September. They also learned that Rui En had went for a Muay Boran grading examination the next day, after spending the day painting with them, when they saw pictures of her posing with the certificate.

In a quote shared with RBKD, Rui En said: “It was so lovely to see all the familiar faces yesterday after so long. Very proud of you guys and your hard work. Looking forward to more charity events.”

We’re sure, to Rui En, nothing beats spending a fulfilling time with her fans, giving back to society in any way possible.
