RIP. Truly a great loss. She was one of my favorites and she always made me laugh.

“Hong Kong comedian and actress Lydia Sum has died, according to Hong Kong media reports.
Shanghai-born Sum was 60.

The star, who was known for her size, had been suffering from diabetes and high blood pressure. She was admitted into hospital in August last year for an operation.

Regularly sporting her signature dark rimmed glasses, she was affectionately known to peers and fans as Fei-fei.

She made her film debut in 1960, joining Shaw Brothers as a child actress. Her stardom began with the widely televised TVB variety show Enjoy Yourself Tonight, first singing with the Four Golden Flowers in the 1970s.” (story)
