Hong Kong actress Charmaine Sheh celebrated her 49th birthday in style on Tuesday (May 29), with friends and various brands showering her with gifts.

Fans also purchased digital billboard slots for Sheh in various cities worldwide, including in New York's Times Square.

On Wednesday, the award-winning actress shared on Instagram a heartfelt photo of herself hugging her mother from behind.

In her post, Sheh reflected on growing a year older and expressed her love for her mum, who's reportedly in her 70s.

“Every year on my birthday, I’ll be reminded to thank my mum and dad for bringing me into this world.

“This year marks my 49th, and while I’ve accomplished a lot, there’s still so much left to do and learn,” she said, adding that she has learned a lot about ageing, sickness and death.

Sheh said she had grown stronger over the past year and a half, during which her mother had been ill.

It’s reported that Sheh’s mum had a health problem two years ago and suffered hair loss due to medical treatments.

“While health is crucial, happiness is top priority. Seeing my mum’s smile each day melts my heart.

“My birthday wish this year is for everyone to join me in wishing Mama Sheh good health!” she added.

Sheh was five years old when her father passed away, leaving behind her mother to raise the actress and her two siblings.

According to reports, Sheh understood her mother’s sacrifice from a young age and would always spend time with her.

In 2005, while attending an awards ceremony in China, Sheh received a call that her mother’s heart stopped beating for 20 seconds during surgery in the United States.

This incident prompted Sheh to relocate her mother back to Hong Kong for medical treatment.

She also promised to spend more time with her mother and work harder for the family.

In 2018, Sheh bought a HK$25mil (RM15mil) house and a new car for her mother. She also gifted her HK$1mil (RM602,145) in cash.
