A Tale of Two Stars

Stars, I suppose make news till their very last breath. Just last week, the world was shocked by the death of Whitney Houston who starred with Kevin Costner in The Bodyguard. The Chinese world, probably was rocked by the death of Taiwan's singing legend, Fong Fei Fei (inset). In Houston where Whitney's funeral was held, there were tales of faith, courage and love of the star who was said to have been a child of  God with a voice of an angel and who at 48, was found dead, slumped in a bathtub of a hotel suite, the cause of which was unknown. Between 2001 and 2005, Whitney had at one time been very thin and stressed and there were rumours of her taking drugs. A close family friend had said that she had not been involved in hard drugs for several years now. Fong Fei Fei passed away at 60 after a battle with cancer. Her death had been weeks earlier but at her request, had been kept secret until after the recent Chinese New Year celebration. There was a rumour that she had died alone with just her four pet dogs for company but her son had since refuted the rumour. In her website, Fong Fei Fei had posthumously written: I have lived a happy and wonderful life. Thank you for being be with me, my brothers and sisters. For the songs that I have not sung, I would sing them in my next life. You'd think that with her songs, Fong Fei Fei would never ever be alone!

Here's a song from Fong Fei Fei from this life..
