Late Hong Kong actor Liu Kai Chi cried on deathbed, but not because he was afraid to die
The Hong Kong showbiz industry lost another stellar but underrated actor when Liu Kai Chi died on March 28 at the age of 66 after a battle with stomach cancer. His memorial service was held on April 20 and his two sons performed on the harmonica to send him off.
His widow, former television actress Barbara Chan, said in her eulogy: “As an actor, he did his best to meet expectations. As a father, he sent his children to school, taught them, and spent time with them in their growing years.
“He once told me, ‘I’m very worried about you, I can’t rest easy, because I feel I haven’t completed my responsibilities as a husband. As a patient, he was what doctors consider an A+ patient. As your wife, I’m very proud of you, Liu Kai Chi.”
Madam Chan said Kai Chi cried when he was receiving treatment in the hospital. He was at the threshold of life and death, but he wasn’t afraid of dying. He cried because he couldn’t bear to be separated from his family.
Xiang Yun says daughter Chen Yixin fell for online fraud, had 3 unauthorised bank transactions
Local starlet Chen Yixin recently became a victim of online fraud, her mother, veteran actress Xiang Yun, said in an Instagram post. The 20-year-old has been filming at Batam for a period of time, and her parents occasionally send her parcels containing daily necessities.
But something went amiss. Xiang Yun, 57, wrote: “She called me and told me that while she was making payment to DHL, the website suddenly disappeared. We suddenly realised that we were victims of online fraud, and there were three unauthorised fund transfers in American dollars.”
She added that poor Yixin — who was in the midst of filming — was frantic and wondered how she could contact the bank and also make a police report. Thankfully, Xiang Yun had some time before her work started, and she was able to make a police report and also send a request to the bank to halt the transactions.
She ended her post with a reminder to her supporters to be careful and a grateful thank-you to the policeman for his help.
