Daring Love 00:21:47 2016-07-07
Former TVB news anchor Akina Fong has a rational and tough image. When Akina talks about her husband, the sweet smile of a young girl’s first love always appears on her face. She is the kind of woman who will be faithful till the end after making her decision – just like her mother.

Mrs. Fong is a Macanese, and she came to Hong Kong when she was 10 odd years old. She worked in a plastic advertising sign shop in Causeway Bay, while Mr. Fong worked as a driver of a rice store. As the shop and the store are facing each other, Mrs. Fong has drawn Mr. Fong’s attention. Mrs. Fong was 14 and Mr. Fong was 19 at that time. One day, Mr. Fong plucked up his courage to invite Mrs. Fong to go to a movie, and she gladly accepted the invitation. In fact, she also has her eyes on this handsome young man for some time.

They live together after dating for several years. (Very “Avantgarde” indeed!) Their daughter even found out that her parents might have got married because her mother was pregnant. And this was once an “unmentionable secret” in the family.

After they had got married, Mr. Fong worked even harder than before, hoping to bring a happy life for his wife and daughters. He took an opportunity to purchase a car air-conditioning repair shop with his friend. Although he was the boss, he did have to work hands-on. Mrs. Fong also helped out and worked in the oily and smelly environment, but she never complained. In addition, the garage shop was once on the verge of going into bankruptcy, Mrs. Fong offered her dowry to support her husband with no hesitation, and today Mr. Fong still appreciates her kindness.

Mr. and Mrs. Fong decided to retire this year, and Akina finds that her parents have switched their roles. Before, Mr. Fong was the boss of the household, and after his retirement, he follows Mrs. Fong’s decisions. They have started a new way to live with each other.
