With her youthful face, charming smile, and effortlessly chic style, Cheryl Wee is one of the most recognisable faces in Singapore. Despite her fame, the scion of the Jean Yip empire is a down-to-earth individual — the legacy she lives up to is borne on the back of her mother’s fabled work ethic.
Like her mother, Cheryl is not one to rest on her laurels. After dabbling in the entertainment scene – Cheryl made her TV debut in the local police period drama Mata Mata, appeared in several short films and even worked the circuit of the Taiwanese showbiz scene — she recently started her eponymously-named wellness and weight management company, once again proving that she marches to the beat of her own drum.
Besides being an entrepreneur, Cheryl counts motherhood as one of her most important roles in life. In fact, she just cheekily teased her second pregnancy at her son’s recent birthday celebration.
So how does the multi-hyphenate manage her busy schedule so efficiently? “My phone. It is an important tool not just for me, but for every modern urbanite. In between replying emails and phone calls at work, I can also keep an eye on what my son is doing via the baby monitor, and stay in touch with my helper when emergencies arise,” she says.
Despite her busy schedule, Cheryl makes time sure she sets aside time for her husband and her sister.
“Roy comes home at about 7pm, and that’s when Marc goes to bed,” Cheryl divulges. “After putting Marc to bed, we’ll have dinner together, and Roy will play his guitar while I catch up on my reading.”
“Sometimes, if time allows, I’ll even make char siew and wantons for my husband and family.”
Cheryl and Roy have known each other since they were 17, so it’s no wonder they get along like a house on fire.
“Besides my husband, I also spend quite a fair bit of time with my sister Rachel and my cousin,” she reveals. “After all, we’re working in the same company, so it’s inevitable we confide with one another the problems we face at work, and how we can work out a solution for every obstacle that comes our way.”
