Hong Kong actress Bernice Liu is head over heels in love with Singapore after filming in the Lion City for three months. She is toying with the idea of buying property here.

"If we (Lion Moms gets) a second season, I'll start looking for one," said the 36-year-old bachelorette, who is best known for her roles in TVB series Virtues Of Harmony (2001) and Into Thin Air (2005).

"I have been able to go around to so many places, from Sembawang to Tiong Bahru," she said.

Tiong Bahru's a nice, hip area where you can buy property, redecorate it such that the exterior looks traditional, yet the interior is modern, she said

In Lion Moms, Liu plays a well-to-do stay-home mum of two, Jennifer, who has to deal with her businessman husband's (Max Loong) philandering ways.

A huge fan of hiking, she visited "many nature reserves and reservoirs" during her stay here.

"Singapore has so many trails and they are all well-looked after," gushed Liu.


She doesn't rule out dating Singaporean men, as "their lifestyles are more relaxed" as opposed to the hectic pace of Hong Kongers. Liu has been single since splitting up with Hong Kong businessman Alastair Lam in 2012 after a brief romance.

Before that, she dated Hong Kong actor Moses Chan for six years before calling it quits in 2010.

Chan, 44, has moved on and started a family with TVB actress-wife Aimee Chan. The pair have two young sons. Although she is not a mum in real life, Liu said she has "lots of children experience".

"My sister has two kids, my brother has three kids, I am surrounded by nieces and nephews. And I am passionate about children's charities," she said.

"My goal was to have seven kids, one for every wonder of the world. Of course I want to have my own kids one day, but I can't rush into it. I need to find the right person first."

With a laugh, she added: "Right now, I have seven dogs."
