第一次以母親的身份慶祝母親節。一直都知道母親是非常偉大的，永遠為兒女無私的付出，直到我自己真正做了母親，才更加明白，母親是凡事都會先想起自己的兒女，事事都會為兒女操心，是否吃得飽穿得暖⋯ 養兒一百歲 長憂九十九 無論多少歲，在母親的眼中我們永遠是孩子，無論母親多少歲，她都會用她的方式來保護我們為我們付出. 謝謝媽媽從小到大都那麼愛護我。就算我長大結婚了，懷孕及坐月期間媽媽還是對我事事照顧，就連我的孩子（媽媽的外孫）媽媽也一樣疼愛❤️ 謝謝媽媽，我愛你❤️ . 也謝謝御世家有機鮮雞滴雞精，由我計劃生小孩開始， 直到我坐月都為我準備好所有調理身體及產前產後的調養配套❣️ 愛你 @yusaikahk . 祝全天下的媽媽「母親節快樂」☺️🥰 #楊秀惠 #VivienYeo #御世家 #有機鮮雞滴雞精 #滴雞精 #零膽固醇 #零脂肪 #無抗生素 #無生長激素
It is believed that Vivien had been wanting to get out of her contract for quite some time, but TVB reportedly refused. However, due to the new birth of her baby and travel restrictions from the Covid-19 outbreak, her work has been impacted in a big way. As a result, TVB finally relented to terminate her contract ahead of schedule.
In her announcement, the Johor-born actress said:
“Thank you everyone for your support all along. My contract with TVB had already ended. Firstly, I’d like to thank TVB for giving me so many opportunities ever since I came to Hong Kong. I’m very grateful. These past 2 years, the company had arranged plenty of good roles for me to play.
They also gave me opportunities to fly overseas to do travel and hosting shows. Regretfully, I couldn’t coordinate my schedules with these projects and had to drop out. Nevertheless, I’m extremely grateful to TVB and all my colleagues for helping me all these years. Please forgive me for not being able to thank each one of you personally. I will continue to work hard, and take care of my family and business.”
Vivien signed with TVB after joining Miss Chinese International 2004 pageants. Her big breakthrough came during 2018’s “The Learning Curve of a Warlord”. She recently appeared in “Brutally Young”, which is her last TVB project.
Besides her acting career, Vivien has been investing in her beauty spa business.
