'Of course, Malaysia should feel proud of Michelle Yeoh', says S'pore PM's wife

PETALING JAYA: Ho Ching, wife of Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsein Loong, said Malaysia has a right to feel proud of Tan Sri Michelle Yeoh's Oscar success as it had recognised her as a Tan Sri well before she won.

Ho Ching - formerly a chief executive officer of Temasek Holdings - was responding to an article on Singapore's online news portal TODAY, which claimed that Malaysia should not have any stake in Yeoh's success.

"Of course, Malaysia should feel proud of Michelle Yeoh as they've recognised her as a Tan Sri well before her Oscar award," she said on Facebook.

Aside from being an actress, Ho Ching said Yeoh had made contributions in many other fields and raised awareness of good causes.

"She is a United Nations Development Programme's Goodwill Ambassador working to raise awareness and mobilise support for the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

"She has been generous in lending her presence and voice to other good causes as well," she said.

Ho Ching then congratulated Yeoh and wished her abundant success for the future as she had given hope and confidence to many through her humility amidst success.

"May she continue to inspire many others to make life as best as they can," she said.
