At last, a trophy for Lin Mei Jiao

Tay Ping Hui and Lin Mei Jiao won Best Supporting Actor and Best Supporting Actress at this year’s Star Awards

Meanwhile, Tay Ping Hui basked in the glory of his award, which he won for his role in Unriddle 2 as Zhang Yuze, a police officer with a brain tumour.

“I’ve heard a lot of people tell me that I’m the hot favourite,” he admitted. “Whenever I heard them tell me this, I’d just say, ‘Don’t tell me, don’t tell me!’. So I was half-expecting an award but I’m just as surprised.”

“What I feel pity about this award is that Wenyong da ge is nominated but he cannot be here with us to share this award or honour. It’s a real pity.”

Despite his victory, Ping Hui can’t party late into the night, as he has a morning shift at work today. “[Winning] is not an end to everything, it’s just a pit stop and it simply means that I’m in luck right now as things fell into place for me,” he said. “I’ll go to work tomorrow morning with the same mindset and not focus on my win.”

When we asked if his wife had wished him good luck before the awards, he said no, as she was sleeping when he left the house earlier that day.

“I made breakfast for her,” he said fondly. “I made her a bowl of healthy oats.”

Health food? Could that mean Ping Hui and his wife are preparing for parenthood?

The actor could only smile in response. “A baby? She’s healthy, but not me. Let’s talk about this another time.”

So while Tay Ping Hui brushed off the question, perhaps it’s only a matter of time before he celebrates an entirely different sort of win.
