Yung Mei Ling before and after death

Not long ago, I went to Yung Mei Ling's apartment for a home visit, and I did not expect that great changes were to occur. These photos became her last series of home life.

Since Yung Mei Ling returned to Hong Kong from England in 1982, she had been living in the home of her godmother at Tin Kwong Road in Kau Pui Lung.

A few years ago,  her nominal father Zhang Chong sold her for a cheap price an apartment at Welcome gardens. Yung Melling moved out of her godmothers house and started to live an independent life.

I still remember the chat the day I visited. her. Kent Tong was there as well,

Yung Mei Ling, : "This long kitchen is just for 'decoration', I don't cook at home at all, and I don't know how to cook. There are all kinds of instant noodles that can be boiled, and I will cook them”. She also praised Kent Tong's willingness for cooking her food, and that he was very attentive to her.

Yung Mei Ling has a large double bed on the ground, and she explained: this home is just a sleeping place for me, and my greatest enjoyment in this room is sleeping. Unintentionally she pushed open a wooden door in the wall, it appeared to be a cupboard and it showed several sets of men's suits; when I went to to her bathroom, I also found some men items such as shaved equipment, but for the sake of knowledge, I didn't ask her about the owner of these things.

These rooms are full of dolls and photo frames. There are dozens of frames! The photos are showing herself or her and Kent Tong. Yung Mei Ling said that the dolls and photos are gifts from fans. They love to give her a color picture in a frame. Feelings of pleasure and happiness fills the room. Looking at these pictures, I can't help but feel sad. Who would have thought that there was a lot of distress hidden behind her smile? .....
