R.I.P. Lydia Shum, Jolly Mama of Hong Kong Movies

R.I.P.
沈殿霞
(1947-2008)


What a bummer. The day started out so nicely, and then I found out about this:

Hong Kong Veteran Actress Lydia Shum Dies

And what's even more depressing, I now have to write an obituary for her... sigh...

I've always like Lydia Shum. Her roly-poly image and jolly personality always made any movie with her in it a lot funnier and more entertaining.

Somehow, the thought that she is no longer around to jazz up a movie with her jolly presence just seems to make the everything in the world a little less bright.

Sigh... Rest in peace, Fei Fei. May you light up heaven with your jolliness.
