Looking at the production credits, it does not appear as though Cindy was part of the team, but was a family member of one of the cast members.

She loved Chanel and regularly got spa massages, ate macarons, and taught her daughter to be kind and to work smart – as seen on her Instagram.

Why was episode 6 in memory of Cindy?

  • Cindy was Cherie’s mum

Cherie reflects on the loss of her mum, who died in 2019, during the episode, and believes her second child is the reincarnation of her parents.

Although Cherie does not disclose her name, she says she feels like she is around her, adding that a part of her wants to be with her mum every day.

Episode 6 ends with Cherie, her boyfriend Jessey Lee and her daughter hugging, just before the credits pay tribute to Cindy Tran.
