Lady with a Hat

If you are talking about a lady with a whip, you'd probably think of Ann-Margret, the star of the 1964 movie, Kitten with a whip, or even Argentina's political leader, Eva Perón who was featured in the 1952 book, Woman with the whip or even Lady Gaga who presented Beyonce a diamond-studded whip on her birthday; but this is lady with a hat or rather hats - Fong Fei Fei, the Taiwanese singer who always appear on stage with a variety of hats. The lady has been in the entertainment business for 40 years and her hats which exceeded 600, are systematically numbered in a computer database. I remember having seen a tear-jerker which Fong Fei Fei starred in, Chu Lien in which former Asian movie king, Ker Chung Hsiung played a bad guy. Then, of course, I also remember reading about her being robbed at home and having stripped naked and had her photo taken. Fong Fei Fei was most popular as a singer and a variety show host in Taiwan during the 1970s and 80s and some of her evergreen songs had been performed by Jam Hsiao, Fish Leong and Chyi Chin. Not bad for the lady with a hat!

Enjoy some of Fong Fei Fei's songs now, won't you?

And than all these hats have infinite prices in the auctions. So, a hat is surely a treasure.
