Here's why nobody knows how Kym Ng's husband of 5 years looks like

To date, nobody knows what Kym Ng's husband of five years looks like.

The MediaCorp host-actress, sporting bright pink hair, is fiercely private about her personal life, reports The New Paper.

Yet, over lunch at Chinese seafood restaurant Yu Cuisine at Marina Bay Sands, Ng, who's in her 40s, debunked my presumption that she and her spouse, a man known only as Mr Yang, must be perennial hermits given how low-profile she is off-camera.

"Of course we go out to eat," she said. "We'd go to hawker joints as well as places like Dempsey. We don't deliberately avoid crowds. It's just that people aren't really interested in him.

"When they see me, they'd go, 'Who's that man beside you? Aren't you supposed to be with Bryan Wong?'"

Wong, 43, is Ng's long-time hosting partner on TV. They became household names after helming popular variety show City Beat in the late 1990s.

Ng, who has no children, said: "Most of the time, I'd respond jokingly, 'Oh, Bryan is doing my laundry at home!'"

Oh, and don't be fooled by her petite frame. The host of infotainment programme The Best of Love on a Plate - airing every Tuesday at 8pm on Channel 8 - has a hearty appetite.

Ng loves dim sum dishes like mango shrimp roll and Dinosaur cheong fun.

"Everyone raves about dim sum in Hong Kong, but I prefer Singapore's dim sum," she said.

Then there's the barbecued pork. "I love fatty meat, I'd work it off later by running and playing table tennis."

And chilli crab. "If my hubby were here, he'd be the one peeling the shells. I won't have to get my hands dirty."
