Well that was quick. Taiwanese singer-actress Vivian Hsu, who touched down in Singapore just last month with her five-year-old son, Dalton, has left our sunny island to return to Taiwan.
Mother and son before their flight to Singapore last month
The 46-year-old, who’s married to Singapore-based businessman Sean Lee, had travelled to Singapore to reunite with her husband after being forced apart by travel restrictions that had been put in place because of COVID-19.
After spending 14 days serving her SHN at a designated facility (and testing negative for COVID-19), Vivian and Dalton were finally reunited with Sean and they managed to celebrate Dalton’s fifth birthday together.
However, it appears that their time together has come to an end. For now at least. Yesterday (Aug 28), Vivian uploaded a new post on her socials, announcing that she has returned to Taiwan. In the picture, both Vivian and Dalton had on face masks and safety goggles, and even a protective face shield for Dalton. But this time round, it seems like mother and son decided to forgo the plastic raincoats they wore for their flight to Singapore last month.
It's not about how much time you spend together, but how you spend the time together
“I'm back! I’ll first quarantine for 14 days! See you on Sep 11, [on the release date of my upcoming] album! Sweet dreams,” posted Vivian.
This means that within the last two months, Vivian and Dalton would have spent half their time in quarantine, with two weeks being the mandatory quarantine period for both Singapore and Taiwan. And yes, this also means that they’ve spent more time in quarantine than with Sean in Singapore.
At least they had fun during their two weeks together
But we guess that’s a small price to pay for love. On a brighter note, Singapore recently relaxed their border measures for certain low-risk countries and regions, which includes Taiwan. From next month onwards, if Vivian and Dalton were to return to Singapore, they’ll only have to serve a seven-day SHN. They’ll also be be allowed to serve their SHN at their place of residence, and undergo a COVID-19 test at the end of their SHN.
