Elaine Ng Learns to Let Go Over Etta Ng’s Problems

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.

  1. I don’t know who’s more at fault here w/this family.
    *JC for impregnating a younger/might be golddigging relatively unknown actress or
    *Elaine Ng who knowingly had an affair w/a dude that she might be hitting the jackpot or
    *The unfortunate offspring who openly knows who her father is but never wanted to acknowledge their relationship or
    *This so called older woman/wife who are both some sort of losers as they are obviously old enough to support themselves w/o crying for help.

  2. it’s the only way to not drive yourself crazy. one can only embrace themselves and say, it’s time for the kids to handle things on her own hoping that she wouldn’t screw up to a point of no return.

  3. Well, even the best parents can still have bad kids! Kids need to learn on their own, you can’t pamper them for life, there is at one point where you as a parents know it’s enough, and you have to let them go and learn it themselves. No kid can walk by themselves while being hand held!

  4. If you dont let your kids find out for themselves, it just digs deeper into the problems. Its obvious to see that Etta has a lot of deep issues, as growing up in the spotlight and knowing that your actual father wants nothing to do with you can put anyone in a bad mental state. She obviously thought that by walking away from all that and starting her own life on her terms was what she needed and its not turned out that way. Think Elaine has to be just be open and there for her when Etta needs her. However Elaine has to bear some of the blame for her past actions as a adult, as a parent and I think she has come to terms with her faults but to let Etta come to her rather than the other way round and to give her space. However as for JC, he is the biggest offender of it all. Openly saying he wanted nothing to do with the child and trying to justify what most men do. I think his son said more on the matter and how he wanted to protect his mother from his fathers fault was more accepting than anything that JC has commented on in this matter. As many people in his industry has said he is a monster and the worse kind of man you can come across.
