MediaCorp artiste Yvonne Lim rubbed shoulders with her idol supermodel Cindy Crawford yesterday (June 17) at an OMEGA event at The Peninsula Hong Kong.

“It was a real pleasure for me to have met one of my childhood idols. I’ve always thought that Cindy was a woman of great beauty and strength, and meeting her for the first time, I found that to be true,” said the Singapore actress.  

Cindy is a long-time brand ambassador for the luxury watchmaker, and Yvonne has been a local friend of OMEGA since 2008. The pair were introduced at a private meet-and-greet session hosted by OMEGA before the premiere of the film The Hospital in the Sky, which chronicles the journey that Cindy and her 13-year-old daughter Kaia took aboard Orbis’ Flying Eye Hospital, a fully equipped medical aircraft and mobile teaching hospital. It also showcases the team that treats patients suffering from blindness and visual impairments.

The pair travelled to Trujillo, a city in the north of Peru, in September 2014 where they had the opportunity to witness first-hand the incredible work that Orbis’ team is doing around the world.  

Yvonne, who had relocated to her husband Alex Tien’s hometown in Taiwan just last month, said that even though she is no longer based in Singapore, she is still happy to be involved with dedicated causes in the local scene.

Being a new mother herself, Yvonne felt especially strongly for the plight of the young patients featured in the film and said, “I really hope that I can contribute in some way to bring attention to the cause.”
