Elaine Ng’s (吳綺莉) tumultuous relationship with daughter Etta Ng (吳卓林) has resulted in much drama, with Etta running away to Canada and becoming homeless last year. Now that Etta is back in Hong Kong but struggling financially, Elaine has always felt on edge over her 19-year-old daughter’s escapades.
Attending a promotional event with Lai Yin San (黎燕珊), Pinky Cheung (張文慈), Michelle Yim (米雪) and Louise Lee (李司棋) yesterday, Elaine expressed that she is trying to let go of Etta’s matters and let her handle them herself. Elaine has been busy planning a new business, and using her spare time to draw. She hopes to complete enough artworks to open an art exhibition.
When asked if she has seen Etta recently, Elaine said, “I’ve learned something after each experience. People need to grow and improve. The whole matter to me is like an experience and I’ve learned something from it.”
As for whether she has been communicating with Etta, Elaine said, “I’ve done my best in everything. She has seen my text messages, so I’m thankful.”
Even when Etta doesn’t respond, Elaine tries to be more understanding, “I’ve already said that I need to learn. At first, I was disappointed but I realized I need to see it from her perspective. For example, she may be too busy to reply.” In the past, she would feel very anxious and wonder why Etta didn’t respond to her calls right away.
When asked about Etta’s alleged marital problems, Elaine said she is not clear. She barely asks about these matters since her daughter is old enough to take care of herself.
