Myolie Wu Goes Through Traditional Hakka Wedding Ceremony

Myolie Wu (胡杏兒) and her husband Philip Lee (李乘德) traveled to Philip’s Hakka ancestral village in Sha Tau Kok, Hong Kong, where they held a wedding ritual for Philip’s ancestors. Myolie married Philip in a lavish wedding ceremony last month on December 28 at the Ritz Carlton Hotel.

On the morning of January 2, Philip and Myolie paid an official visit to Philip’s Hakka ancestral village of Sheung Wo Hang, where they worshiped the Lee family’s ancestral shrine, as per Hakka tradition for newlywed couples. Myolie was dressed in a long red dress, while Philip had on a red pullover.

The Lee family’s ancestral home was in Fujian. After settling in Hong Kong many years ago, quite a few members of the village left for England. Philip himself followed his family to England, but he later returned to Hong Kong for his business careers.

In the ceremony, Myolie and Philip went through traditional wedding rites, officially inducting Myolie into the Lee family. The former TVB actress shared, “Philip’s family likes traditional ceremonies. He is also the oldest, so this is a process that we must go through.”

According to Myolie, their wedding ceremony was the first big event since the shrine’s renovation. The wedding’s officiator spoke in Hakka throughout the ritual, adding more authenticity to the ceremony. Myolie also did a self-introduction in Hakka, impressing the onlookers. The villagers also performed a unicorn dance, a folk art exclusive to the Hakka people.

It is said that Myolie and Philip will not use contraceptives after their marriage, in hoes to carry the Lee family line in the future. “Three babies in a year? Let’s hope so!” joked Myolie.

    Honestly, do we need to know if she takes contraceptives?

      @janet72 Perhaps the reporters should ask her how many times they “do” per week to get pregnant!!!

    “It is said that Myolie and Philip will not use contraceptives after their marriage, in hoes to carry the Lee family line in the future. “Three babies in a year? Let’s hope so!” said Myolie with a smile.”

    I’m not sure who edits the articles here but shouldn’t it be “…in hope to carry…” instead of “…in hoes to carry.”

    It sounds wrong to me…

    it is only possible to have triplets in a year. even if she gives birth to one in january and another one in december, that’s only 2.

    That’s baffling! How to have 3 babies in a year? Not even prolific breeders like moses and aimee can pull off this feat.

      @isay
      I think it’s a cantonese metaphor, meaning they will have 2 babies w/i the 3 years range? Not that they will have 3 babies but 2 babies, they usually say that to all newlyweds I think. lol…

        @kiki probably a translation error. Yes 2 babies in 3 years, I’ve heard of that. Some people do better popping out one baby per year.

        @isay well if they want it they can always do IVF. Just in the States, IVF are not covered by insurance unless it show you are really having issue conceiving naturally (usually by not being able to conceive by yourself after 6 months of trying for people over 35). But if they are willing to pay for it, they can always have that procedure done.

        @happybi of cos i know there’s the ivf option especially if money isn’t a problem but I don’t think that’s on their minds right now. Conceiving the natural way is much more enjoyable and meaningful lol!

        @happybi haha thx. ivf is many many times worse. It’s not only painful on the wallet but also very painful for the woman who needs regular hormone jabs to stimulate the ovaries as well as harvesting of the eggs. Believe me, most people do it only as last resort.

        @isay sigh.. that is very true.. very painful but for those as last resort, it’s really worth it when there are results.
