Born in Malaysia, raised in Singapore, she pursued her career in the entertainment industry in Hong Kong with her sister Rosanne Wong which won her various awards for her singing career as the cantopop group 2R, including Most Promising Newcomer and Most Popular Group Award in the Annual Top 10 Song of the Year Awards (2003), Metro Broadcasting Music awards (2004), TVB Top 10 Songs of the Year (2004) and Hong Kong Commercial Radio Music Awards’ (2003).
Wong became a spotlight when she was chosen to star alongside Stephen Chow in his famous annual San Miguel TV advertisement. Following that, she rose to fame for her leading role in a TVB youth series Hearts of Fencing. Which jumpstarted both her singing and acting career.
Wong hoped to focus her acting on roles beyond her youthful and sweet appearance. Her outstanding performance in her first leading role in movie Abnormal Beauty Abnormal Beauty won her a nomination for the Best New Actor in the 24th Annual Hong Kong Film Awards (2005) and the 42nd Golden Horse Film Awards' (2005) in Taiwan. Wong continued to experiment with different roles both on-screen and off-screen. In 2006, together with her sister Rosanne Wong, they took on groundbreaking leading roles in a musical adaption of The Smiling Proud Wanderer stage performance by the Hong Kong Dance Company (2006) where Rosanne famously shaved bald for the role. The musical enjoyed a success which brought them to perform in Shanghai the following year.
Later in 2008, Wong's starring role as a pregnant new immigrant from China was a break away from her usual youthful image in the movie True Women for Sale which earned her a nomination for Best Supporting Actress in the 28th Hong Kong Film Awards in 2009.
Over the years as 2R, Wong has been a product spokesperson for various products such as Modern Beauty, Microworks Technology, Citicall, Biotherm, SAFA Mp3, 2R Online, 花花瘦身茶 (Fruity Flower Tea) and Polaroid & Cool-iCam.
In 2010, Wong took a Masters of Business course and graduated with a Masters of Business majoring in Marketing from the University of Newcastle (Australia) in 2013. Concurrently in 2011, she made an unexpected career change into finance, taking on the role of Marketing Manager at Maybank Kim Eng Securities (Hong Kong). She was licensed with the Securities and Futures Commission to conduct equities trading.
The year she turned 30, Wong relocated back to Singapore where her family is based. Together with her younger sister, Rhonda, she set up Anthill Realtors Pte. Ltd in 2013. She then co-founded Ohmyhome Pte Ltd in 2016, a tech company focused on connecting buyers to sellers, landlords to tenants in real estate. When asked about her career move, Wong said that she wanted to focus her attention on something that will provide more value to people, something on the opposite spectrum of her celebrity lifestyle.
Wong had a daughter, Cara Loh, born in 2017. She birthed her second child, Damon in 2021.
