MOVIE star Chow Yun Fat (pic), who is known for his frugal lifestyle, spends only HK$800 (RM424) a month, Oriental Daily reported.

His wife Jasmine Tan revealed that Chow enjoys eating street food and has been using her old handphone for 17 years.

She said he only changed to a new smartphone after the old phone stopped working.

Despite being an international star worth HK$5.6bil (RM2.97bil), Chow still sees himself as an average man, who finds joy in living the simple life.

Often seen commuting on public transport dressed in old clothes, Chow said that “clothing was not something to show off and anything is good as long as he feels comfortable in it”.


>An elderly woman who was on a trip with her son and daughter-in-law in Zhejiang, China, ended up walking 3km after she was told off for closing the car door too hard.

She was found walking alone along a highway in Chongqing by the police, reported Nanyang Siang Pau.

During questioning, the woman said that she had a fight with her daughter-in-law while they took a break at a rest station on their way back from their family holiday in conjunction with China’s national day.

“She told me to do it well or get off and walk instead. So I did,” said the woman about her daughter-in-law.

The police managed to contact her son and she was reunited with her family at a nearby toll plaza.

Her son told the police that his mother went missing at the rest station and did not pick up his calls.
