Are You For Her? Rui-dy

RUI EN is back and raring to tickle your funny bone. But first, a latte art workshop is in order.

The media is huddled at the office pantry tucked away in a corner of Mediacorp Campus awaiting the arrival of Rui En and Shaun Chen. The stars are taking a coffee-making class to prep for a scene in their new Ch 8 drama Hello From The Other Side. Shaun arrives promptly at 3pm, while Rui En strolls in with her manager five minutes later.

The agenda for the day: Learning to make latte art. Helming the course are two young, boyish-looking baristas from mobile coffee catering Nineteen95 the Espresso Bar, who kick-start their hour-long class by demonstrating the art of pouring latte to achieve the “very basic” heart shape.

It’s both Rui En and Shaun’s first time trying their hand at pouring latte art. But it’s not all work and no play today. Shaun, ever the joker, pretends to pour the espresso in the same fashion that a Teh Tarik Uncle would pull tea. It’s not just us who’s amused. Rui En, standing next to him, bursts into loud chuckles. It seems that one year away from the limelight has done the actress good — she has never looked happier or more relaxed.
