Happy birthday, Rui En! The actress turns 39 today (Jan 29) and to mark the occasion, she and her loyal fans did something special a couple of weeks ago. On Jan 17, Rui En and 20 members of RBKD went around handing out S$9,000 worth of goodie bags to the elderly. It’s a tradition that started a decade ago, after she told her fans to avoid buying her presents and give back to the community instead. “Every year is special because it means so much more to me that my fans are willing to do charity work for my birthday rather than a normal celebration, which I have always felt is unnecessary and a waste of money,” said the actress. She added: “Charity work is never easy and this year was no exception. I can't tell you how proud I am of them.” Read more on CNA Lifestyle, link in bio. #RuiEn #RBKD #charity #Singapore #actress (Photo: RBKD)

CNA Luxury: A bevy of stars descended upon Robertson Quay and the STPI on Thursday evening (Nov 14) for the opening of Cartier’s Clash de Cartier Studio pop-up. South Korean actor-singer Ji Chang-wook headlined the evening, while Mediacorp Artistes Rebecca Lim, Rui En, Sheila Sim lent further stardust.
It’s a feeling that Rui En can empathise with. “I tend to be kind of chor lor [rough around the edges], unglam, awkward and clumsy in private. When I’m at an event like this, I’ve got to rein that in!” she shared. “I find that I have infinite sides to my personality. I can be a rather complicated person, and the Clash de Cartier collection reflects that.”
Citing Avril Lavigne as a major influence on her teenage sensibilities, Rui En shared about going through a punk phase in her teens. “I fancied myself an emo punk rocker. I [had] all the studs and chains. This jewellery is a grown-up, more expensive version of that!”

RBKD: Rui En & Fann Wong each gets a mention with one paragraph each. Only Rain & the Mediacorp artistes were interviewed.
In CNA’s own words: “Despite Rain’s megawatt presence, the biggest cheers of the night were reserved for Rui En, whose fans had set up camp on both sides of the red carpet. Known as the RBKD, they held banners and chanted loudly upon catching sight of their idol.”
Mediacorp publications 8 DAYS and i-Weekly will move to become digital-only, and will have their last print editions at the end of September this year.
