Change can either happen gradually or in the blink of an eye. Either way, we usually need time to adjust to our new routine. After all, regardless of whether it’s a big or little change, it’s a disruption to our lives which we need to process. And that is exactly what local singer Gary Chaw (曹格) did.
It’s been over a week since Gary announced that he and his wife, Wu Shuling (吳速玲) were divorcing. At the time, Gary had reassured fans that he was fine, but explained he would be taking a ‘break’. Still, it was a pleasant surprise to know the singer is doing well when he was spotted by a reporter on 2nd November.
Gary and Shuling had previously been together for 14 years. Unfortunately, like many celebrity couples, they have often been plagued with rumours of them separating. Although the couple denied it initially, more cracks started showing after Gary’s drunk scandal. Things came to head in October this year when Gary revealed that he and Shuling were having a cold war. They eventually broke the relationship off on 26th November.
The news left many saddened, but none more so than Gary himself. As such, the singer understandably took a brief hiatus to gather himself. While he isn’t officially back in the spotlight, Gary was spotted earlier this month by a reporter from “Next Apple News (壹苹新闻网)”. Apparently, the local artist had been in the midst of bringing his daughter, Grace, home from school.
At the time, Gary had just pulled up to his 70 million Taiwan dollars (~RM10 million) mansion in Beitou, Taiwan in his supercar. Grace had been in the back. However, Gary had gotten down first and was happily greeted by his dog and a helper. The reporter had supposedly noted that Gary had looked much younger, thanks to his trendy outfit of a white short-sleeved top and an open green vest.
Grace had gotten out of the car shortly after Gary and was spotted with a white backpack. It was assumed that Gary was dropping her off at home. However, that was interrupted when Gary spotted the reporter. He apparently wasn’t happy to see them there.
It’s clear that Gary is still looking after his family. But, media were wondering about his and Shuling’s career as well. “(Gary) is currently preparing for new works and (is) continuing to create and write songs,” Gary’s agent later said. Shuling’s agent added that she is also pretty busy as she has an online program lined up, with plenty of filming and recordings scheduled until after the Lunar New Year next year.
Well, life is still moving on for both Gary and Shuling. But, we are definitely glad to know they are doing well. We wish them all the best as they move forward in life!
