Apple Hong gets hitched

Former Channel 8 actress Apple Hong quietly married her long-time boyfriend on Oct 10, said local reports. In an interview with a website, she announced jokily: "I accidentally got married. I'm already a wife."

The 39-year-old Malaysian, who described her husband as a low-profile Singaporean businessman, said they tied the knot in a "very simple" ceremony.

"We just invited two witnesses and a priest to our home and then signed our names."

The couple also held a banquet in Kuala Lumpur on Sept 30, the same day as former actress Tracy Lee's wedding to businessman Ben Goi. Hong recalled that when Lee invited her to her wedding, "I said, 'Aiyah, sorry ah, I'm also getting married that day'".

Asked about baby plans, she said she would take a "let it be" attitude and not worry about it.
