While Malaysian Chinese actress Angelica Lee Sinje shunned questions on her marriage with Hong Kong director Oxide Pang during a product launch this month, she did let the media in on how she would pamper him by giving him a facial at home.
All this despite the fact that the couple had gone through a rough patch a few months ago. Their four-year marriage was thrust into the spotlight after the 50-year-old Pang was caught having an affair with starlet Liddy Li last November. Lee has reportedly forgiven him.
Although media reports said that she had removed her wedding ring, Lee was seen donning it while she was in town on Jan 8 for the launch of SK-II's latest product, when she spoke lovingly on how she would look after Pang's skin for him, as he was not someone who was bothered to do so.
The 38-year-old smiled and talked about how she would "serve" Pang and give him her own facial treatment after he comes back home looking tired from a long day.
The petite actress told AsiaOne that after seeing how she "looks better and better", Pang would ask her to apply beauty products on his skin as well.
"My husband is jealous of how soft (my skin) is," remarked Lee, who was dressed in an angelic white outfit and looked slightly under the weather.
"I will then observe if it really works on his face. But after his skin looks radiant, he will feel happy."
On how she takes care of her own skin, Lee says that she immerses herself in a warm bath. She would also massage her face with her fingers and use traditional methods to exfoliate her face.
Not one to be pressured into looking good, Lee believes that having an appreciative attitude and taking care of oneself are more important. She believes through this, she can meet people with confidence which translates to her being happy.
On what kinds of movies she hoped to star in, Lee fervently said that she hopes to do comedy as she never acted in a comedy before. She added that most of her movie characters are 'heavy', where there are too many crying and suffering scenes.
When asked if she had any New Year resolutions, Lee's response is to appreciate everyday and have a positive attitude to face everything including career and family.
Lee, who practises Buddhism which she used to help her through her marriage ordeal, said: "The biggest lesson I've learnt is not to be so stubborn or insistent in life. Life is transient, always in a state of flux. Whatever you face in life, keep your heart peaceful and calm. From there, you go forth and tackle whatever problems you have."
