5 August 2013 / 3 years 2 months ago

92-year-old Chan Lai Fong is a hale and hearty old lady who still gets up at 4.30am to go swimming with her son -- none other than Chow Yun Fat.

According to a report on HKtopten, Chow Yun Fat's mother Chan Lai Fong attended a charity banquet by Kwan Tak Hing's grandson Kwan Chiu Yeung two nights ago.

She said that lately she has been feeling great. "Seeing the achievements of Kwan Tak Hing's grandson, I am very happy. So even a 92 year old like me has to come. Everyday I would swim at the South China Club, every morning I leave at 4:30AM. If I don't swim I would be crippled. Now I can walk and jump. My son at first would swim with me, he taught me to swim. However no one can help you, you have to help yourself. Seniors have to work hard on exercises."

She admits that she no longer plays mahjong however. She joked, "All my mahjong buddies went to Heaven, and I am no match for the younger folks. They are fast with their limbs, my slow eye sight would lose everything! At home I would ride the stationery bicycle, which cost HK$30,000. Fat Gor bought it for me."

Did she ask Fat Gor to buy several homes for her? Fat Ma said, "Having food and shelter are already enough, for those who are content with what they have even poverty is joy. Those who are not would worry even when wealthy."
