Ivy Lee gave up fame and relocated to Hong Kong after the Singapore TV actress got married in 1997 and started a family.

In a rare return to Singapore, she has posted a photo of her catching up with former actor colleagues Hong Huifang, Chen Xiuhuan, Huang Biren, Yvonne Lim and Chen Hanwei.

"So happy to be home and a wonderful catch-up with my dear friends," Lee, 46, captioned the photo.

Actress Aileen Tan posted a comment that she could not join the gang because she had a flu and that she did not want to put Lee's children at risk.

Lee, who has four children with producer-director husband Raymond Choy, moved to Hong Kong 10 years ago because of his work commitments in China. She quit her job even though she was a three-time Best Actress winner and was a fan favourite.

The reunion got Chen Hanwei to post his festive-season wish.

He wrote: "I hope I can work with all of you again, the audience misses you.

"It has been a really long time since I acted with the five of you.

"To be able to find wonderful acting partners, that's easier said than done.

"If the six of us can act as a family, how wonderful it will be."

Lee also satisfied her hunger for Singapore food, posting photos with actors Yao Wenlong and Terence Cao.
