After 40 years of marriage, Felix Wong’s (黃日華) wife Leung Kit Wah (梁潔華) passed away after a seven-year battle with leukemia. Though he knew this day would come, Felix still found it very hard to cope with his wife’s passing and would often dwell in his sorrows, even locking himself in the bathroom and “waiting to die”. Fortunately, Felix’s close friends such as Michael Miu (苗僑偉) helped him adjust to his loss and find a healthier way to mourn his wife’s passing.
In the latest episode of TVB talk show Bong, Bong, Amigo! <諸朋好友>, Felix expressed exactly how grateful he is to have Michael in his life. Friends for 40 years after meeting in TVB’s 9th Artiste Training Class, Felix and Michael were both quickly promoted to leading actors and experienced many highs and lows over the years.
They reminisced that they once pretended to be penguins at a TVB awards ceremony and practiced together for two months before a variety show with the rest of the Five Tigers. Michael said, “I remember that one time during training, I accidentally fell on Andy Lau (劉德華) and he nearly bit off his tongue! His tongue was bit through halfway, but it was because of this he became a singer.”
Michael’s humor and positivity have always been valued by Felix, who is grateful Michael helped him through the initial dark days after Leung Kit Wah’s death. Felix said gratefully, “Michael supported me during a time when I was most lost and helpless. When he heard that my wife had passed, he immediately asked if I was okay. Over the next few months, he would often call in the morning to ask if I wanted to have breakfast or go eat dim sum together. He spent time with me, trying to release me from my sorrow.
“During my wife’s funeral, Michael came and took care of many tasks. He also helped find a final resting spot for my wife, so I am very thankful for him. You don’t need to say much, a brother will always support you. I feel that you can’t buy these things even if you have money.”
Men often do not like to get too emotional over friendship, but Michael reassured Felix that he would always be by his side.
