Although she’s known for being a bilingual DJ and a sought-after emcee, Lim Peifen has also acted alongside Mediacorp A-listers such as Tay Ping Hui and Christopher Lee. The self-professed shy secondary school student has come a long way since and she is now comfortable enough in her own skin to speak out in front of thousands — what an inspiration to all the shy little ones out there! Did we mention that she’s a mum to an adorable little boy too?
Peifen started her career as a DJ at the age of 18, when she won a part-time DJ contract as part of a contest held by Y.E.S. 93.3FM. She was later offered a full-time contract with the radio station and has stayed there ever since.
Aside from being a radio deejay, Peifen is now one of the most in-demand hosts, as she is effortlessly fluent in both Mandarin and English. She has hosted a wide range of events, including Changi Millionaire with Chua Enlai, Where in Singapore (2005) with Chew Chor Meng and the Sing•浪 Concert with Xie Jia Fa.
As she’s so good at what she does, friends often ask her to help host private celebrations, which she happily does.
520 was filled with love. Hosted a secondary school classmate's 10th wedding anniversary + baby boy's first birthday + husband's birthday celebration, and another friend's wedding dinner banquet. Congratulations to Jaclyn and Kaiwei, Irene and Jonathan. "And now these three remain: Faith, Hope and Love. But the greatest of these is Love." – 1 Corinthians 13:13 I wish you love. ❤
Since then, Luke has been the centre of his mum’s life and she absolutely adores her son, judging from the numerous photos she has of him on her Instagram feed and the fact that his cheeky face is her phone’s wallpaper.
He’s even made appearances on a few magazines with her!
The host is known to be a big cat lover, and has three cats at home: Mr Snuggie, Night and Mono. The family recently moved and the new home includes a ‘cat highway’ where her fur kids can hang out undisturbed, high above the ground.
Peifen may have a girl next door image, but this mama can certainly glam it up when the occasion calls for it.
Whether she is dressed up in glamorous gowns or fun flirty dresses, she looks just as good and comfortable in them.
We look forward to seeing what the multi-talented host gets up to next.
