A WOMAN in Wuhan City, China, vomited blood after she ate too many mooncakes in the run-up to the Mid-Autumn Festival, reported China Press.

The 27-year-old did not eat any food apart from mooncakes for three days before throwing up.

Due to the overconsumption of the annual delicacy, she suffered severe abdominal pain and even vomited substances containing blood.

A doctor diagnosed her with erosion on the wall of her stomach, saying that if she had not acted earlier, she would have suffered massive bleeding.

The doctor also explained to the woman that since mooncakes were made of starchy flour and that the skin contained excessive sugar, eating too much could cause adverse effects.



> Kwong Wah Yit Poh reported that the Taipei City health department would be issuing a 10,000 New Taiwan dollar (RM1,509) compound against Mandopop singer Wang Leehom for breaching a seven-day self health management order upon his return from the United States.

The Covid-19 prevention regulation is required in Taiwan after the observation of a 14-day quarantine period upon entering the country.

The 45-year-old singer, who was supposed to avoid public places and gatherings, recently had a meal with Taiwanese singer-actress Vivian Hsu, Taiwan TV host Blackie Chen and his wife, singer Christine Fan.



> Oriental Daily reported Hong Kong singer Hacken Lee as saying that he was now all right with people asking him to sing his iconic Cantonese song Blazing Sun.

He said at one time, he felt so fed up of singing the song that he wanted people to know he had evolved into a more versatile artiste.

The song, released in 1992, propelled Lee’s career and won him numerous awards.

“Of course, now, I do not mind. Whenever I’m invited to sing the song, I know I can sing it differently with a new music arrangement,” said the singer.

Lee said he hoped to produce an evergreen Mandarin song so that the audiences would not only remember him for Blazing Sun.
