Hong Kong actor Shawn Yue is facing the same thing as many other celebrities who have started travelling for work, spending his fair share of time staying in a hotel room while counting down the days to the end of the mandatory 14-day quarantine many countries have imposed on travellers. The 39-year-old may had to spend his birthday, November 13 alone due to the quarantine.

Shawn’s hotel room in Taiwan is located on the ground floor with a nice view of the street. This means that the actor is fortunate enough to see his wife, Taiwanese model Sarah Wang and their two-year-old son Cody in person during his isolation even though they a separated by a glass window. On the day of Shawn’s actual birthday, he was surprised by Sarah and her friends who showed up outside his window with a cake to mark the occasion.

“Thank you all. Although it feels a little weird, [‘cos] I’ve never tried celebrating my birthday this way,” Shawn wrote in his caption, attaching a picture of his unorthodox birthday celebration.
