Rui En and Dennis Chew
Their friendship blossomed while filming the 2013 Channel 8 drama, The Dream Makers, where Dennis played Rui En’s older brother. They reprised their roles in the second instalment, which aired in 2015.
The two are so close, they even took a trip together to New Zealand. The actress planned and paid for a five day, four night trip to New Zealand to celebrate the 43rd birthday of the radio deejay.

More than two decades after it was launched, and just months after it comprehensively revamped its website, news and lifestyle aggregator AsiaOne is expected to shut down as early as next month.
AsiaOne is the primary content aggregator for SPH’s publications, featuring stories from the likes of The Straits Times and The New Paper, while also syndicating content from SPH magazines, such as Her World.
The news comes on the back of Wednesday’s announcement that SPH will be cutting 230 jobs by the end of the year, as part of a previously announced 10 per cent reduction in its work force.

Baby Avery may not be rolling in gold (Kate Pang’s the ambassador of a pawnbroker’s gold collection), but she has been showered with gifts from her godmother Rui En.
Andie Chen, who got close to Rui En after starring together in this year’s Channel 8 drama If Only I Could as a married couple, was the one who suggested she become Avery’s godmother.
In fact, the couple got the name Avery from the 35-year-old local actress, who had originally planned to use it for her own daughter in future.
“Many people have the impression that Rui En is cold, but she is actually a very warm-hearted and caring godmother,” said Pang.
“She visits often and buys cute and quirky presents for the kids, like a blanket with a sheep’s head.
“I think she would make a great mother. She has such an intense love for children, and likes to carry and cuddle them.”
Pang joked that Rui En has yet to change Avery’s diapers, but she is welcome to if she volunteers.
