Model and actress Ase Wang, 31, has lived overseas for the last seven years, but she does not feel that makes her any less of a Singaporean.She has been based in Bangkok, where she has carved a name for herself as an actress and performer -- but despite this, she insists she is very Singaporean at heart. “My friends call me ‘˜Ang Moh Lian’ and they are astonished that I pepper my sentences with Singlish whenever I talk,‘ said the former international school student. However, her interests clearly are scattered across the globe.Apart from her work in the entertainment field in Thailand, Miss Wang also travels regularly to Hong Kong and Los Angeles for acting and modelling work.Later this year, she will be on local television screens as one of the judges of region-wide model hunt reality series Supermodel Me, which is filmed in Hong Kong.Recently, Miss Wang, whose mother is Swedish and whose father is a Singaporean, embarked on a new career: As a businesswoman.She invested in a barber shop, Never Say Cutz, with Thai pop star Way. She also owns her own clothing line.But Miss Wang says her heart belongs here.And one thing this beauty is certain of is that she will not give up her Singapore citizenship for anything.“I am proud to be Singaporean and I believe that has helped me to be, grounded in whatever I do,‘ said Miss Wang.She tries to return home as much as she can to spend time with her semi-retired father, 59, and her mother, 63, who live in Holland Village.Source: The New Paper
