Carina Lau shares her favourite memories of Singapore

Carina Lau's glowing in pink - and surrounded by waves of camera flashes as she glides up to the Roger Vivier store in Singapore.

With her soft, dewy skin, Lau hardly looks her age; the youthful-looking 47-year-old actress was here last week, for the store opening of the shoe and accessories brand's first Singapore store at Takashimaya Shopping Centre, reports AsiaOne.

And she's more than pleased to be in Singapore, says the star in Mandarin, during a group interview in front of the store. "I really miss Singapore!" exclaimed Lau. "Singapore brings back memories of the days when I had first made my debut. At that time, I was often in Singapore to perform and to visit friends who live here."

Married to actor Tony Leung Chiu Wai, Lau was known for her "girl next door" role when she had first made her acting debut; traces of it quite evident that day in the sweet pink look that she'd picked. With her matching Roger Vivier shoes and clutch bag, Lau looked ever so fresh and radiant.

She has even given in to a girly quip on her look: "The 'in' colour this year is shocking pink. So I just had to find a pair of matching pink shoes to go with it."

As we spoke to her, it seems evident that Lau is in a very good place in her life right now; she's happy, self-fulfilled and busy with work. The actress was most recently seen on screen in Flora Lau's Bends, with critics celebrating her portrayal of a pampered housewife in a downward spiral, after her character is abandoned by her rich husband.

Asked if she has ever considered buying an apartment in Singapore, Lau replied: "I've once bought an apartment in Singapore before. I've sold it since. And each time I'm here, I really have that impulse to buy another apartment in Singapore again. I think that the apartments here have been built so beautifully and the weather is really good. But I don't know what I'll do with it! [laughs]
