Taiwanese actress Barbie Hsu's mother-daughter photos posted online has gotten netizens commenting that she is a 'huang lian po', or a plain old housewife.

On May 20 (Tue), a day of love confessions because 520 sounds like 'I love you' in Mandarin, Barbie posted a photo of herself and her daughter, Wang Xiyue lying in bed with the caption: 'A mother's love is strong, and is made of sugared glass. 520, Mum, I love you.'

Barbie was dressed in pajamas with a bare face and appeared dreamy-eyed in the photo, while Xiyue was dressed in yellow and was still fast asleep.

According to a post on, people then commented: 'What a blessing to have a Mummy who so openly declares her love for her girl!'

But some sharp-eyed people noticed her pale face and said jokingly: 'Look, your face is now yellow (a play on the Chinese term 'Huang Lian Po' which means plain old housewife). Take care and just focus on your confinement!'
