Peh, who said that she was physically fine, returned to work on Friday (Sept 28) after two days of home rest.
She added: “My neck and back are aching more than they did yesterday, but there are no other superficial injuries. However, I am unable to carry a heavy load or hold my children for now.”

She was also quoted by Mediacorp’s The Celebrity Agency on Instagram as saying: “Thank you, everyone, for your concern.
“Fortunately, it was the car that suffered the worst damage. The airbag wasn’t even deployed, so aside from minor pain in my neck and waist, there are no severe injuries.”

It also probably means she will have to take a break from her favourite parent-child bonding activity, arts and crafts, for now.
“I’ve always loved the combination of books and art, and because there is so much cardboard lying around at home, I decided to create something based on my daughter’s favorite bedtime book (at the moment) The Pout Pout Fish,” she shared in an Instagram post.
