Dennis Chew wishes his “little sister” happy birthday
RBKD: It was Rui En’s birthday last Monday (Jan 29) and her “kor” Dennis posted a throwback photo of them, with his well wishes, kindly translated by Toggle’s team into English: “Little sister! Wishing you a happy birthday! You are the most beautiful and most outstanding angel, which many people already know about”, he wrote, urging her to continue lighting up the world with her sunny, positive outlook on life. Awww, isn’t he the sweetest?
Star Awards 2018 Noms
Who’s in? Who got snubbed?
RBKD: A small 1-inch sized photo of Rui En on the cover on the Star Awards 2018’s news. It’s really nice to remember Rui En’s performance & put her on the cover but guess it’s probably high time for the nominees to get their share of attention now?

RBKD: 8Days mentioned that there’ll always be fine performances who somehow don’t make the cut and shared their take on this. They suggested that “surely Rui En’s convincing turn as a con artist with a heart of gold in ‘Have A Little Faith’ was deserving of a nom?”
Well, c’est la vie~
By Cheryl Ong
RBKD: So 8Days said that this year, it’s not so much about who’s in as compared to who’s out. After seven consecutive Best Actress noms (and two Best Actress wins), Rui En, who starred in Have A Little Faith, is MIA from this year’s Best Actress list. Certainly comforting to know that they are missing her as much as we do, isn’t it? ;)
