Sylvia Lim and Quah Kim Song

SINGAPORE - After a series of photos showing former football hero Quah Kim Song embracing an unidentified woman, he and Workers' Party chairman Sylvia Lim have responded to say that 'this is a non-issue to us'.
The joint statement was sent as a text message from Ms Lim's handphone to Chinese evening daily, Shin Min Daily News.
The photos of Mr Quah and the unidentified, Filipino-looking woman began circulating in an online forum thread, with the heading, "please do not show this thread to Sylvia Lim", shortly after their romance was officially announced.
Ms Lim, 48, and Mr Quah, 61, confirmed last Saturday that they have been dating for about six months.
She told The Sunday Times that some mutual friends had coaxed Mr Quah to sing at the WP's variety show, Bricks In Blue, in January.
"We became close after that," she said.
The former football star, 61, is a widower with two children.
Who doesn't have a past?
According to Shin Min, Ms Lim sent the message to the evening daily on Thursday evening, at around 6.25pm. The couple issued the joint statement after discussion. They were uncontactable before that.
