Yeap said she felt "liberated" after she paraded in the hijab for a commercial casting a few months ago.
Now, she feels “happy, protected and safe” everytime she dons the hijab.
And when another opportunity arose to model the hijab for Hari Raya recently, she seized it without much thought.
“I realised that I was looking forward to cover up (my body) more. When someone grows up they become wiser,” she told Star Online.
But modelling the hijab has not changed her religion. She denied that she had converted to Islam and remained a free thinker.
In recent weeks, Yeap has posted pictures of herself wearing the hijab in her Facebook fan page that has more than 148,000 likes.
She still does “sexy” fashion shoots but that is because she has to “pay the bills.” And she is more selective now with her assignments.
“I am planning to slow down on those kind of shoots and try my best to avoid them. I only do about 30% of the requests I get,” she said.
