When talked about last year falling from the horse accident, he talked about when he took a private jet back to Hong Kong, “The makeup artist gave me 4 face masks as I was told that I look ugly, worried that I was photographed, reminded me to wear face mask. When I’m hospitalize, coincidentally it’s Chinese New Year, many people will come for greetings, thus two days before the new year, a group of nurses rushed into my ward suggest to me to wash my hair, clean my body. Thus the senior wash my hair and junior wipe my body, but junior is already 60 years old.”
