Babe, me?

SINGAPORE - She may have been calm and cool about her nomination, but her second Babe Of The Year win - with a record-breaking 6,405 votes - made actress Rui En "flabbergasted".

In an e-mail to The New Paper, the 31-year-old said she was "bewildered" when she first heard the news about how many votes she had received this year.

She beat Jeanette Aw, who received 804 votes, and YouTube star Munah Bagharib, who received 183 votes.

"My fans... I have no words for how incredibly committed they are," she said.

"Truly, any and all awards actually belong to RBKD, all my fans and them alone."

RBKD, the moniker for Rui En's fan club, was also responsible for her first Flame Awards trophy, also for Babe Of The Year, back in early 2009.

Then, she was up against this year's nominee, Jeanette Aw, as well as Joanne Peh, both of whom had shined in blockbuster drama The Little Nyonya.

She had also been nonchalant about her chances then, saying it would be "The Little Nyonya year".

Up against Aw again this year, as well as hot newcomer Munah Bagharib, Rui En declined to talk about her chances.

Now that she has won again, she is somewhat amused.

"I really am the sort to head down to the kopitiam in shorts and slippers. Highly un-babe-like ... " she said.
