Last phone call with Weng Meiling!
Interview with Yawng
On Tuesday 14 May, I went back to work as usual. I went back to work and continued with my unfinished work. Suddenly, my colleague said to me with a half-laugh and half-anxiety, "Weng Meiling has died! Since my colleagues love to laugh and have nothing better to do, my first reaction was, "What are you playing at ......?". They replied "It's not a game, it's something that came out from the news. It was reported on the radio."
"......" I just thought to myself. "No, I don't believe it. How could a nice person die for no reason?"
And then a colleague said, "I heard that she died by gas inhalation."
"I just spoke to Weng Meiling on the phone yesterday."
My colleague walked away, so I grabbed a radio and waited to hear the news. "The TV star was found dead in the living room of her Broadcast Drive home this morning. The room smelled of gas and she was taken to hospital where she was confirmed dead. ......"
After hearing the first news report in person, I still found it hard to accept the truth. I sat by the radio for more than two hours and listened to the report four times before I could believe it was the hard truth. In the meantime, I had hoped that the news report would be corrected to say that the news of the death of Ms. Weng Meiling was wrong. But I could not wait. It's just that I spoke to her on the phone yesterday.
"Hello, is that Weng Meiling?"
"Yes, I am."
I can't believe it went so well. I'd always called her house and couldn't find her, but this was the first and last time.
"I'd like to invite you out for tea, are you free today?"
"No, I have to work today."
"How about tomorrow?"
"I can't either, I've got another job."
"Can I talk to you now?"
"I'm reading a script at ...... what do you want to ask me?"
"We were at the Miss Hong Kong film in Repulse Bay on Sunday and we happened to meet Miu Kiu Wai, Chi Mei Chun, kent Tong Chun Yip and Ng Kwan Yu when they went swimming together.
"No, I haven't read the newspaper. What is it?"
"The four of them went swimming, why weren't you there?"
"Well, it's as simple as that, no particular reason, because I had to work that day, and even if I didn't work, I wouldn't have gone because I don't like swimming at all, but if there was a another activity, I would have gone.
"But Chi and Miu are already a couple, so naturally, people will drag Kent Tong and Ng Kwan-yu together.
"So what? People are dragging me and Miao together. It's not like we have anything, so let them talk."
Weng Meiling said just now that she was about to start working and was reading the script.
"So I said, "I won't stop you, why don't I come back to you later?"
"Sure, you can call me at 12 o'clock, or you can call the dressing room in Clearwater Bay and find me there."
Okay! I'll talk to you later, bye bye."
After saying goodbye, I never had the chance to talk to Weng Meiling again!
I had to wait until after 12 o'clock to call Weng Meiling's house, but after more than 10 calls until 1.30 pm, no one answered the phone.
So I changed it to tomorrow. Now I don't have a chance to talk. I really can't talk anymore!
