I will wait for him: Terence Cao's former lover

SINGAPORE - Actor Terence Cao's former flame and the mother of his 2-year-old daughter has said "as long as he is not married, I will continue to wait for him".

In a phone interview with Chinese evening daily Lianhe Wanbao, 27-year-old Miss Shi Mei added, "I will wait till I'm 30; when I'm in my 30s I'll wait till i'm 40, and when I'm 40, I'll wait till I'm 50. No matter how long, I will wait."

Her comments come after the 46-year-old actor told the media that he can only be "good friends for life" with Ms Shi. He also said in media reports that he yearns to find someone special to be by his side, "but I'm not thinking about all the complications. A lot of things happen because I handled them with an irresponsible attitude."

To that, Ms Shi says she respects Cao's decision, and is willing to remain as friends if that is what he wants, reported Wanbao.

Ms Shi told the Chinese evening daily that she is currently working as a waitress at a restaurant to make ends meet. She works from 2pm till midnight, and has only one day of rest a week.

Ms Shi deflected the question when asked if the $600 in monthly child support which Cao is paying is insufficient.

She said: "I'm now my daughter's mother as well as father, for her sake, I have to work hard."

Ms Shi, who has regained her pre-pregnancy figure, also admitted that she has had suitors pursuing her, but because she has adopted the mentality that she is "a mother of child", she rejected their advances.

"He (Cao) is still in my heart, and my life revolves around our daughter, I will not consider anyone else," said Ms Shi resolutely.

According to Wanbao, Ms Shi has only positive words to describe Cao as a father. She says Cao will send over things like milk powder and other foodstuff that their daughter likes to eat. When she's sick, Cao will also send medicine and other tonic products.

She added that besides talking to Cao every morning via video calls, their daughter will regularly point to Cao's photo and will proudly ask classmates, "Isn't my father handsome?"

According to a My Paper report, Cao said he has no intention yet of bringing his daughter over to Singapore for her education: "There are actually a lot of good kids and schools in China.

"I don't wish to do something that will split both mother and daughter apart and if I bring her over here, her mother will have to come over as well, which may complicate matters."

Not only that, they normally prefer their man to be younger, handsome and most important, rich and had at least a 2L car.
