Learning how to live without a spouse after a divorce can be tough. However once bitten, twice shy and some might even swear off love altogether. But what happens when love comes knocking at your door? 

At least for Taiwan-based Malaysian singer Fish Leong, she’s not closing that door just yet. This is despite facing emotional turmoil following her divorce from wine merchant Tony Chao in December last year.

The pair also have a 6-year-old son named Anderson of whom they share joint custody.

It is said that Leong suffered from depression after her divorce but saw a psychiatrist to aid her recovery. 

Dating After Divorce

In what seems to be more promising news, the 42-year-old is dating again according to China Press. 

During a press conference on her upcoming world tour concert on Tuesday, Leong revealed that she recently visited Lungshan Temple in Taipei and sought advice from the god of matchmaking (yue lao) regarding her love life. 

The singer was said to have also received an amulet in hopes that it would bring her luck.

On whether it produced results, Leong responded that she was seeing someone and everything was going smoothly at present. 

She shares that while they have gone out for a date and coffee, they are not in a committed relationship yet. 

‘World is still beautiful’

“I’m looking forward to a new love life. I hope to find someone who loves sports and leads a healthy lifestyle,” the 42-year-old wrote. 

She is clear as day about her likes, as well as dislikes while stating: “But I will not tolerate someone who is not punctual”.

In a separate interview with the media following her divorce that was finalised last year, Leong shared that her heart is full of warmth.

She says that the ‘world is still beautiful’ and hopes to stay optimistic in spite of her marital setback.

Rumours about her ex-husband’s Chao’s alleged extramarital affairs surfaced in 2019, which left Leong distraught. Although Leong was said to have forgiven his initial wrongdoing, Chao reportedly addressed these rumours on how he had repeatedly cheated on Leong.

Leong and Chao tied the knot in February 2010 at Boracay in the Philippines, and welcomed their only child in April 2014.
