Times flies when you are with someone you love. Together for 14 years, 53-year-old Ekin Cheng (鄭伊健) and 47-year-old Yoyo Mung (蒙嘉慧) dated for seven years before getting married seven years ago. Though they have always maintained a low profile and rarely talk about their marriage, Yoyo made a rare move of sharing a sweet moment of their everyday life on Ekin’s 53th birthday this year.
On October 4, Yoyo posted a photo on Instagram of a bowl of pigs’ feet noodles. She had just finished breakfast, and was considering whether she should give into her guilty pleasures and order a piece of condensed milk toast as well. Thus she asked Ekin, “If I become fat later on….” Before she could even finish her sentence, Ekin immediately replied, “We don’t need to wait until later–you are already fat.” Yoyo helplessly stated, “You’re a formidable opponent–there is one day in the year when you can speak like this. Happy Birthday.” Fans found their interactions very sweet and praised the couple for being cute.
Ekin may have said “fat” in jest, but Yoyo did gain weight when she had previously injured herself while snowboarding, and was not allowed to exercise for two years. At one point, her weight shot up to 130 pounds. Hoping she can become healthier, Ekin became Yoyo’s personal trainer and accompanied her on her weight loss journey. Over two years, she was able to slowly lose 29 pounds.
The couple has a consensus to not have children, and lead a semi-retired life. Though Ekin is currently signed to Media Asia, he does not have to work for a living as he has quietly amassed a fortune of $160 million Hong Kong dollars through smart real estate investments. Slowing down his work to enjoy life, Ekin loves traveling the world with Yoyo and spending time with their families.
