Chen Liping Met Up With Samsui Women Star Zeng Huifen And Netizens Are Going Crazy

Looking good, ladies!

Today (Mar 8) is International Women’s Day and many celebs took to social media to share their tributes to ladies all over the world, but Chen Liping’s post definitely stood out, especially to fans of classic local dramas.

The 56-year-old actress uploaded several photos from an outing with former Mediacorp — then SBC — star Zeng Huifen, who is still very fondly remembered for her breakout role in 1986’s Samsui Women.

    It’s not clear when exactly their reunion took place since Liping added a hashtag for “tbt”, or “throwback Tuesday”.

    Based on their mugs and the background of the photos, it appears they were dining at Enjoy Eating House & Bar on Jalan Besar, suggesting that Huifen, 60, recently made a trip home to Singapore from the United States, where she relocated to with her family after retiring in 1996.



Liping’s followers were absolutely delighted to see the elusive Huifen, who doesn’t have any public social media accounts of her own.


“OMG!! My goddesses,” gushed fangirl Priscelia Chan with two heart-eyed emojis.

Other excited comments include: “It’s been a long time since we saw Zeng Huifen”, “She is still an elegant beauty”, “So glad to see Zeng Huifen again”, “My childhood memories”, and “The best reward in life is to have friends like this”.

    Also included in Liping’s post was a shot of a handwritten note that says: “A true friend is for life. We are busy, yet we care about each other. We don’t need to think about each other every single day ‘cos we’ll never forget one another.”

    It’s not clear who wrote the note or who it was intended for, but it does nicely sum up Liping and Huifen’s long-time friendship.
