Angelica Lee Celebrates 39th Birthday with Husband
It has been half a year since director Oxide Pang‘s (彭順) cheating scandal in his marriage with Angelica Lee (李心潔) was exposed. Deciding to forgive him and give their marriage another chance, Angelica has let go of the incident in her heart. “It’s time to move on and look forward,” Angelica said, appearing to be in good spirits at her 39th birthday party.
Celebrating her birthday with Oxide and good friends Gigi Leung (梁詠琪) and Karena Lam (林嘉欣), Angelica shared photos of the lively gathering.
“Thank heaven for surrounding me with many people who love me, and allowing me to live a life full of love. Birthdays aren’t the most important. What’s more important is spending a lovely evening with a bunch of good friends. That’s what’s most precious! I have the birthday wish that I’ve always had: I hope there will be peace in our hearts, and peace in the world,” wrote Angelica.
Angelica Lee’s Forgiveness
Following the exposure of Oxide’s affair with model Liddy Li (李悅彤) in May, Angelica was criticized as being foolish for condoning her husband’s infidelity and betrayal. Deeply loyal to her husband, Angelica was tolerant of her husband’s mistakes and chose forgiveness.
In an earlier interview, Angelica disclosed her views on love and how she was able to tolerate Oxide’s infidelity, “The basic foundation of marriage is a true heart and to never give up. Marriage involves two people. It is difficult to be your best self, so being with someone is even more difficult. It is very difficult to have to be intimate with someone else for so many years. I won’t let these obstacles scare me. In the end, we learn from these lessons and grow. The most important thing is to understand yourself. To meet someone in this life and become husband and wife is a very precious thing! Everyone has their low tides and becomes adrift. Isn’t the ability to support each other better? So the ending doesn’t matter. The most important thing is the process and whether we truly love each other.”
During the most difficult days of the scandal, Angelica turned towards meditation to resolve the negative energy and think clearly. “After this incident, I believe that we are a family. I am willing to stand by him and continue my life’s path with him and I hope it will be good. I am not a saint. This is my choice and our choice.”
Angelica has put her career on hold and devoted herself to taking care of Oxide’s daughter with his ex-wife. Many believe that Angelica has sacrificed a lot for Oxide, only to have Oxide return her love with betrayal.
“No matter how successful a woman is in her career, she must make a choice when she has a family and children. After you choose, then you shouldn’t regret it or consider it as a sacrifice, because you will learn to grow in the process.” Angelica cherishes her family and loves her stepdaughter has her own flesh. She has decided that forgiveness is the best path for everyone.
