Lee Bee Wah & husband’s wedding anniversary on 18 Dec

In the photo, a younger and more radiant Ms Lee can be seen donning a wedding gown with her hair neatly tuck underneath a matching veil.


Her husband, Mr Soh Chee Hiang, was seated next to her in a neat grey suit.

To commemorate their wedding anniversary, Dr Lee thanked her husband for supporting everything she did and keeping true to his word made decades ago.

Dr Lee, prior to their wedding, apparently made clear certain ‘T&Cs’, stating that she would:

  • Continue sending money back to her family in Malaysia
  • Never dress up or wear makeup
  • Need personal space
  • Stay home to iron and cook.

Disclaimer: Dr Lee eventually wore makeup, but only on one occasion — their wedding.


While the ‘conditions’ might make some turn heads, Mr Soh accepted her for who she is and continued to do so through the years as a married couple.

The pair now has a daughter and a son, both in their 20s.

Netizens go “wahhhh” over wedding photo

The succinct yet heartfelt post received a slew of comments.

Most netizens were in awe of how beautiful she looked despite having no makeup on.


Many also congratulated the pair for maintaining the relationship throughout the years.


One netizen shared that Ms Lee’s story was especially relatable since she too, said “almost the same thing” to her husband prior to their wedding.


Could you recognise the younger Ms Lee at first glance?
