HONG Kong’s Queen of Cantopop Sammi Cheng alluded to her troubled marriage in her newest song, We Grew Up in the Same Way, Sin Chew Daily reported.

A snippet of the song was posted on Instagram, along with a posting on her career.

“In 30 years, I’ve gone through so much. Walked out of depression and have had successes and failures in my career.

“I’ve also encountered some of the lowest points in life and deep waters in my marriage.“There were happy times and there were painful times and because of this, it forced us to grow and mature,” Cheng, 46, wrote.

Cheng is married to singer Andy Hui, 51, who rocked Hong Kong showbusiness in April when a video emerged showing him canoodling with TVB actress Jacqueline Wong at the back of a taxi.

Both Hui and Wong have since taken a hiatus from their work.

Cheng put up several social media postings, saying that she had forgiven her husband and requested fans to respect her decision.

 

> A scene depicting a “lion” escaping from a zoo elicited smiles from visitors to a park in western Japan, China Press reported.

The “lion” was a zoo staff dressed in a furry costume for a safety drill at Tobe Zoological Park in Ehime Prefecture on Saturday.

Zoos around the country regularly conduct drills where staff pursue and capture these “animals” such as zebras, bears and rhinos.

Footage of the drill from Mainichi News Group was spread online due to the comical “questionable acting skill” of the “lion”.

The “lion” was seen charging at zoo staff, but its charge ended when one of the staff “shot” the “lion” with a tranquilliser gun, causing it to fall limp to the ground.
