Quan Yi Fong turns 45

The actress-host celebrated her 45th birthday with a trip to Bangkok, where she paid a visit to the Erawan Shrine.

"There's so much that I want to say, but I'm afraid that there won't be enough time (for me to say it). I'm truly thankful for all of you, I love all of you," she wrote in her caption.

"Please forgive me, for I shall slowly disappear, from my familiar surroundings that I love deeply," she continued. We can't help but wonder, is her post linked to our recent chat with the 45-year-old, where she revealed that a reunion with her daughter, who's currently based in Beijing, China, is in the works.

And of course, the winner of the highly anticipated Fried Insect versus The Good Fight cast match? Definitely the cast members.
