The remains were discovered in black bin bags when a man who bought the apartment at a bank auction went to clean the unit, which had been vacant for more than three months, the Star newspaper said.
A strong stench led the owner and security guard to the refrigerator, which had been sealed with masking tape.
Newspapers in neighboring Singapore said the victim was believed to be a Singaporean who had been married to the woman and who had been out of touch with his family for nearly two years.
The Straits Times carried a photograph of the woman, described as an air stewardess from Sarawak, being led away by police, a scarf hiding her handcuffed hands.
It quoted unnamed sources as saying police were hunting for the woman's lover.
Police said they had probably solved the case with the arrest of the woman, The Star newspaper said.
