Eileen Yeow, a Singaporean actress with TVB, recently returned to our shores with her 11-year-old son Evan to visit family and friends. They will be here until late August.
The 50-year-old former beauty queen, who has been in Hong Kong showbiz since 1995 with her latest work being the drama The Righteous Fists (2022), hasn’t been to Singapore in two years due to Covid-19.
In an interview with Shin Min Daily News published on July 17, Eileen said: “I’m Singaporean — I sent my child to the Singapore International School [in Hong Kong] because I want him to study under Singapore’s education system and absorb Singapore culture. The school teaches only in Mandarin and English, whereas other schools in Hong Kong use Cantonese.
“The school rules are also very strict, which I appreciate. One day when I return home [to Singapore], my son will join the army and he won’t have issues arising from cultural differences.”
