After her harrowing robbery in Malaysia, Chris Tong now travels everywhere with two personal bodyguards hired by her film company to protect her.
The 29-year-old former beauty queen, who had acted in several local and Singaporean dramas and movies, had just finished a meeting with a client in Jalan Kuchai Lama late on Monday night on her work in a new movie.
She had gone to get supper when the incident occurred early Tuesday morning.
Tong was walking back to her car after buying some food from a stall when she was suddenly hit from behind by an assailant.
It had been only the barking of her pet poodle saved her from having her RM300,000 Mercedes-Benz SLK car-jacked.
Since the attack, her condition has greatly improved. She head earlier been worried that her "pig head-like" injuries would affect the production, but her recovery has been better than expected so far.
She was able to hide the areas that were still swollen with make-up.
