Internet "Celebrity Couple", Gay Chao Hui and Rachelle Ann Beguia

Gay Chao Hui, Joachime, is a Singaporean Civics Tutor at Tampines Junior College. Rachelle Ann Beguia is his Filipino wife who works at the National Heart Centre. They live in Punggol and have a three year old child.

There’s nothing extraordinary about their profiles. In fact, the couple is much like the typical happy Singapore household living the Singapore dream with respectable jobs.

That was until Rachelle Ann Beguia posted remarks on MP Penny Low’s Facebook page, calling Singaporeans “moronic” and that NSmen would be the first to run if there’s unrest. The remarks were made in the context of defending MP Penny Low, who has been chastised by Singaporeans online for fiddling with her handphone while the national anthem was being played. Penny Low has since apologised for her action.

Many Singaporeans were obviously peeved with Rachelle’s remarks, especially since it touches on the mandatory NS issue, always sensitive in the context of Singapore-born vs foreign-born Singapore residents.

Some started harassing Rachelle, staging a personal vendetta against her. Complaint letters were written to her employers,National Heart Centre till her employer issued an official notice to investigate the incident and take any necessary disciplinary actions. They also helped Rachelle earned coverage in a few newspapers.

Just when everyone thought the saga is all over, Rachelle’s husband, Gay Chao Hui, jumped onto the bandwagon, claiming he was the one who used his wife’s account to post those offensive remarks:

Obviously, these two have not learn from the MP Tin Pei Ling’s Cooling Off Day Saga.

As a result of Gay Chao Hui‘s adding flame to the fire, more dirt has been dug up about him. The dude is a regular at the Pinoysg.com forum. From his various postings, Gay Chao Hui seems very ashamed to be born a Singaporean and aspires to be a Filipino:
