MALAYSIAN singer-songwriter Penny Tai celebrated her 20th anniversary in showbiz, reported China Press.

In a Facebook posting, she wrote: “Feb 25 is a date that you all help me to remember. Thanks for accompanying me for the past 20 years.”

She also expressed hope that “everything will be fine”, in what is believed to be a reference to the Covid-19 outbreak.

A fan, in a comment, asked her to release a new album and hold a concert, to which Tai replied: “This is a year to rest!”

Another fan said Tai, who will turn 42 in April, looks ageless.

“You still look 28,” said the fan, to which Tai joked: “Were your eyes closed when you said this?”

> The daily also reported that Hong Kong starlet Jennifer Tse Ting Ting wished her one-year-old daughter happy birthday on Tuesday.

The single mother said her daughter Sarah meant the world to her, adding that Feb 21 is her birth date.

She posted picture of a birthday cake on her social media account with the caption: “I love you more than you’ll ever know. Happy 1st birthday Hunny Bug.”

The elaborate cake featured a unicorn.

Tse, who is the younger sister of Nicholas Tse, has not revealed who her daughter’s father is.

> Sin Chew Daily reported that Malaysian singer Michael Wong will organise his concert with the theme “Tonight I am not lonely” at Taipei Arena, Taiwan, on March 14.

He will also release his new album on that day.

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, fans from China, Hong Kong, Macau, Japan and South Korea will not be able to make the trip.

In an interview, Wong said he was nervous and worried over current developments.

“The organiser told me the concert will proceed. What I can do now is to rehearse and memorise the lyrics in preparation for the concert.

“I have been exercising to enhance my immune system and reduce stress at the same time. I’ll make sure I’m in tip-top condition during the concert,” Wong said.
