Hong Kong actress-singer Charlene Choi may be in a stable relationship for four years now, but the 32-year-old is in no hurry to get married.
Choi, more affectionately known to fans as Ah Sa, was in town last Thursday for the opening of multi-label fashion store i.t at Orchard Gateway.
The event attracted over 600 fans and guests.
In 2010, it was revealed that the popular star had been secretly married to fellow actor Ronald Cheng for four years, and was getting a divorce.
Later the same year, she announced that she was dating Hong Kong singer and fellow labelmate William Chan, who is three years younger than her.
Speaking to The New Paper, Choi said candidly: "I was married once in the past, so I am not rushing to get married again. I can afford to wait a bit more, and focus on my career now.
"The last time, I was too young and made rash decisions. Now, I will think carefully before making the big leap."
She said that she would get married only if she wants to have children, giving herself a deadline of "probably 40 years old".
"I feel like I am still a little kid myself now. I cannot imagine taking care of my own children," Choi said.
The Cantopop singer - who is one-half of the female duo Twins (the other half being Gillian Chung) - also reasoned that since Chan is younger, there is no pressure from him to walk down the aisle anytime soon.
But if she does becomes a mother, Choi wants to raise her children here.
"Singapore's education system is very good, and I've many friends who have brought their kids here," she said.
