Elaine Yiu has taken a one-month break from work after getting bitten on the face by her dog.
According to Jaynestars, netizens were wondering about her whereabouts as Yiu was surprisingly absent from recent Lunar New Year celebrations with good friends Nancy Wu, Mandy Wong, and Selena Li.
It turned out that Elaine has been resting at home after being bit on the face by her dog.
She posted a photo on Weibo showing half of her face covered.
The 35-year-old actress was accidentally bit by her dog, which required stitches.
Since dating Cheng Tsz Bong, the rich heir of a large car company, Elaine was often spotted walking their dogs together.
Taking a one-month break from work in order to recover, Elaine responded calmly:
“I’m not disfigured, nor will I give up my pets over this incident. They are very cute.
"Thank you for everyone’s concern. I don’t want to comment on it too much.”
According to the reports, Elaine was playing with her dog when the incident occurred. While playing, the dog got too excited and unintentionally nipped her cheek with its canines.
However, the wound was not too serious and required only a few stitches. Under the doctor’s recommendation, Elaine will temporarily cease accepting new projects and will focus on her recovery.
