When she was a little girl, Hoi Siong often accompanied her grandmother to watch Chinese wayangs. As time passed, she became fascinated with chinese operas, mesmerized by the scenes before her and the beautiful artistes with their painted faces and glittering costumes. One of her favourite artistes was But Suet Seen.
At the age of 15, she started learning cantonese opera under Joanna Wong.
In 1997 she became a full-time artiste with the Chinese Theatre Circle. In 2000, she was one of the two recipients of the Outstanding Young Person Award given once every two years by the Orchid Jayceettes of Singapore.

Over the years she has put on considerable weight which doesn't look good with a hua dan. Hopefully she will slim down.
