obituary: lydia shum 沈殿霞 (1947 - 2008)

Hong Kong entertainment industry has just lost an iconic figure in Lydia Shum (沈殿霞), as she passed away at 08:38 a.m. (HK Time) this morning.

Lydia Shum (沈殿霞), 21 July 1947 - 19 February 2008

I remembered watching her comedies and movies when I was young. It was sad to learn about her departure.

She has been struggling with chronic ailments throughout the years, and only had the illness worsened in recent years. That was when her health development became main concern in the local media.

So she was dead a year ago? But I did see her appearing in newspaper and tv just a few months ago.

Could it be her ghost? :(
