Tata Young was one of the most prominent pop stars to emerge from Thailand in the mid- to late 2000s but her presence in the regional pop scene has been pretty quiet of late.

But that is only because the 33-year-old has been concentrating on performing on home ground, the singer tells Life! in a telephone interview from Phuket, where she was on holiday.

More importantly, she also took a few years off to recover from an illness.

"I was sick for a little while. I had hypothyroidism and I gained a lot of weight and it was tough to be in front of the camera. Although my confidence was always still there, I was easily tired. So I took a break, got myself together and finally now I'm well and fit. I feel healthy."
