S’poreans congratulate ex-actress Rebecca Lim on her retirement as her career is really over

Posted on 13 February 2016

Good luck finding a way back after this one, they said.


Singaporeans from all walks of life, who can recognise a botched job when they see one, have come out to heartily congratulate ex-actress Rebecca Lim on her retirement from showbiz as they view her career as effectively over with immediate effect.

This after Lim came out to explain that her first announcement about her retirement from acting was actually not true as it is an advertising campaign for NTUC Income, where she signed up for a retirement plan and urged people to do the same.

This then caused Singaporeans to react positively.

One Singaporean, Pian Lang Eh, said he wished Lim all the best: “Good luck, Rebecca Lim. Your career is officially over in the eyes of ordinary Singaporeans as you have set fire to all the goodwill you’ve cultivated the last few years.”

“We thought that you were the only sensible artiste left in Mediacorp who valued authenticity over a few thousand dollars.”

“Guess everyone in Mediacorp values a few thousand dollars more.”

“There was no way anyone could have survived this, not even Zoe Tay.”

Other Singaporeans said it was a pity Lim had to go so soon given that she is only 29 years old.

Mei Gong Zuo, another local said: “It is tragic an acting career has been snuffed out just like that.”

“She still had about another three good years left in her before she moved on to slapstick skits and local movies.”

“But with her exposure and following, she should be able to sell massage chairs as a second career.”

    When you sell yourself out to such an extent, your career should be over. So happy early retirement.
