Cecilia Cheung's long wait is finally over. Her estranged hubby Nicholas Tse boarded the first flight out to Hong Kong from KLIA on Friday morning.
The Hong Kong action star, who spent two months filming Against War in Kuala Lumpur amid his much-publicised marital breakdown, flew MAS business class, flight no. MH 072 which departed at 9.15am.
Well, he was fashionably late. The actor arrived at the airport around 8.30am - with a horde of female fans in tow.
When approached by The Daily Chilli, a seemingly calm Nicholas said he would miss Malaysia very much. "But I hope to come back," he said with a smile.
He declined to talk about his private life, but judging from his body language, it's all over between him and his actress wife of five years.
His only concern now is his two sons - Lucas, 4 and Quintus, 1.
Nicholas and Cecilia are tipped to meet back home on Friday evening to discuss the future of their two kids, and the power couple's separation.
As her personal assistant told sina.com, "Cecilia wants the best for her kids. That includes having their dad (Nicholas) around them."
