GEORGE TOWN: Penang has appointed Kedah-born actress and singer Lee Sinje as its tourism ambassador.

Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said on his Facebook page: “We believe that Miss Lee is the perfect candidate to become our ambassador because of her massive following in Asian countries, especially in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, many parts of China and of course, Malaysia.”

Sinje, he said, has acted in many award winning movies such as ‘Ice Kacang Puppy Love’, ‘Re-cyle’ and ‘Koma’.

“Her talent in acting has scored her numerous international awards in her career, which includes Best Actress at the Golden Horse Award, Hong Kong Film Festival and Hong Kong Golden Bauhinia Award.
