MARRIED singers Rainie Yang and Li Ronghao finally got the chance to enjoy each other’s company after being apart for more than 300 days due to Covid-19 restrictions, reported Sin Chew Daily.
The couple, who were separated just months after registering their marriage in late 2019, were reunited once more on Jan 23.
Yang posted on Instagram that her quarantine period in China was over, quickly followed by a short message saying “we have met” and accompanied by a photo of an unrelated girl hugging a dog, which many take to mean that she has met her husband.
Although Yang did not reveal much about how the meeting went, fans claimed they could feel her joy at meeting her husband again.
“Post a photo after you meet... We can’t wait to see big brother Ronghao, ” a fan commented.
On several occasions, Yang had written online about how she missed Li and longed to see him.
Yang, 36, and Li, 35, got hitched in September 2019 after dating for four years.
Due to Covid-19 travel restrictions, Li was stuck in mainland China and Yang in Taiwan.
> Angry at being fired after taking leave to attend his father’s funeral, a man in China’s Shandong province sought legal recourse against his former employer, the same daily reported.
The dispute arose after the employee, whose surname is Lu, applied for leave to visit his family in January 2020.
On the way home, he was informed that his father had passed away.
However, he also received a call from his superiors that his leave was not approved and that he was required to return to work in Shanghai.
After informing his company of his father’s death, Lu was under the impression that he was given compassionate leave to attend his father’s funeral.
When he returned to work eight days later, he received a letter informing him that he had been let go for “being absent from work without reason for three days”.
The tribunal at the Employment Dispute Arbitration Commission has ruled that Lu did not commit any misconduct and ordered the company to pay him 75,269 yuan (RM47,139) as compensation.

“I don’t feel the need to waste any time on them. I should instead focus my time and effort on my loyal fans who care dearly about me.”
