The gesture was initiated and co-organised by Rui En, who raised funds for the gifts, packed the items, wrote the notes, and treated volunteers to drinks.
A representative from Rui En’s fan club RBKD told AsiaOne they spoke to their nursing friends before deciding to give the hospital staff hand cream because “a lot of them have dry, cracked hands from (using) alcohol sanitisers”.
They also gave the care packs to cleaners and drivers at the hospitals as they are an “overlooked group of heroes in the hospital”.

RBKD: Hong Ling gushed about how she admires Rui En but acted all cool in front of her. In a short span of 30s, Hong Ling said “I love Rui En” three times.

This year’s National Day Parade (NDP) theme song is the most ambitious crossover event yet.
Reminiscent of Michael Jackson’s We Are The World, a total of 300 Singaporeans – including 27 musicians – across different generations were assembled to film Our Singapore (2019), taking 12 hours to shoot the whole thing.
Old is also gold for this year’s song.
But take a closer look at the music video and you may realise that some of our local stars are not in it.
Here’s who we think should have been included in this star-studded line-up.

Singapore Idol Taufik Batisah made it, but not his partner from 2005’s Reach Out for the Skies, the popular actress Rui En.
A missed chance for them to recreate the sick dance moves from this song.

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.
