Felix Wong Refuses to Visit Estranged Father in Hospital

Felix Wong (黃日華) reportedly has a poor relationship with his 84-year old father and current stepmother, 50-year old Lau Wun Chan (劉煥珍). A caller claiming to be Felix’s uncle from his mother’s side earlier informed the press that Mr. Wong has fallen extremely ill and asked them to pass the message to Felix, hoping he would visit his father in the hospital. However, there is currently no response from Felix although he is aware of the situation.

Felix’s mother passed away in 2000. Seven years later, his father remarried Mrs. Lau, who has two daughters and one son of her own. When reporters earlier visited Felix’s father in the hospital, he was in poor health. Mr. Wong was only half conscious with bloated red fingers and a large scar on his abdomen. Busily taking care of him, Mrs. Lau revealed he had undergone surgery for ileus, an intestinal obstruction, and was later diagnosed with pneumonia. Mr. Wong had been repeatedly sent to the hospital since the end of November and was readmitted a few days ago due to a high fever.

Mrs. Lau exclaimed through tears that Mr. Wong was not able to not recognize anyone at the time, including herself. Currently, she is the one taking care of all her husband’s daily necessities. Her son had also helped out for nine months and had specifically quit his job to do so.

Meanwhile, Felix did not even bother asking about his father’s conditions. Apparently, Mr. Wong refused to be sent to a nursing home and had objected loudly in the past.

Speaking of the family, Mrs. Lau revealed Felix was never on good terms with her. In fact, she had only met him four times since she became his stepmother. After 2009, Felix reportedly never paid them any visits. Mrs. Lau admitted she hopes he will lend a hand financially and expressed, “It is fine if Felix is angry at me, but it would be great if he can hire someone to help out. He should be taking responsibility.”

The man who claimed to be Felix’s uncle spilled Felix is probably on bad terms with Mrs. Lau due to property issues. Mr. Wong had purchased a flat over $300,000 HKD years ago, and it is likely to be left for his current wife if he passes away. Allegedly, Felix believes Mrs. Lau is greedy and wants to take over his father’s property.

    It’s one thing to be upset at your stepmother, but it’s another thing to not visit your father if he’s seriously ill.

    If this is true, it’s quite disappointing to hear.

    Although Felix may have had disagreements with his family, he should push that aside and care for his father if he is extremely ill. Now is not the time to bear family grudges.

      For some grudges persists despite illness or death. I am not sure what led to this drastic decision but unless Felix says it himself, let’s take everything like a grain of salt for now.

      I agree and regardless of anything, it is still his father. It will not be good if he does not visit him. He may regret it if his father passes away and then he cannot see him for one last time.

    To inform the press to pass on a message to Felix. That is just awful. The uncle or whatever should have pick up the phone or find a better way to let Felix know because it’s a personal matter. Adding salt and pepper to the situation or what.

    I doubt d stepmother & her bro are good people..taking this opportunity to “darken” Felix reputation..aso using d media & public to treathen Felix to financially & be responsible for HER duty! when problems arise she start to TaiChi to Felix. If it wealth do u think she will share with Felix? Such a scheming & sly woman!!. I oni agree Felix to visit his father..as for d rest is up to his own will.

        From the source video, sounds like they’re in a financial mess. Who knows how much debts were racked up by the father, stepmother & her kids and for how long? Does Felix need to provide for the stepmother & her kids too?

      Mr Wong’s stepson even quit his job to help him for 9 months. If this was true, it was a very big sacrifice by a son even more so a stepson and yet you doubt they were good people

        You see the photos in the original article? The step-mom looks older than 50, her hair already mix with gray hair. Anyways, maybe bad gene? Since the news say she 50, we should just believe it, LOL!
        And I agree with you, even the step-son can sacrifice, then Felix the biological son should help out his dad.
        I am waiting to hear Felix side of the story, I doubt this news is completely true.

    the stepmom is 2 years younger than felix. itll be awkward if he has to call her mom. even aunty is a bit awkward. its understandable why he hates his father for marrying someone so young. but its his father who give him life. his mother has already passed away and his brothers or sisters already have families of their own. so his father would want someone by his side.
    and the “uncle” is really awful. family matters should stay in family. why told the world about it. i think its him who dont like felix.

      i dont think felix hates his father because of the age of his stepmother,there must be a deep grudge that makes a son doesnt want to see his heavily sick father.i dont know whats going on between them but i hope he can put away their grudge and do what a son should do.

      even if that’s his stepmom, felix doesn’t need to call her mom cos she’s younger than him, he can always call her by her maiden name, btw, who’s this uncle who doesn’t like felix?

    I’m sorry but all the stupid people that posts and rank about Felix. Family itself has a lot of politics and conflicts. Unless you’ve been through it or you know EXACTLY what Felix ‘s reasons are , I don’t think it’s fair to judge. I know at the end of the day its his father but the story might have been fabricated to portray the actor in a negative light.

    A great example is Ada Choi. She spent her youth helping her mom repay her gambling debts which eventually forced her to be “kept and paid” by a much older man. I’m sorry but if you haven’t realized the entertainment industry isn’t very forgiving. She literally sacrificed her own happiness for the sake of one word- family.

    Hence is why she missed her chance of marrying into “red door” .

    It wasn’t too long ago that Ada Choi announced her official separation from her mother. I mean that woman went to gamble during Ada Choi’s grandmother’s death.

    So if she fell ill, I honestly think at the end of the day it is fair to say that Ada Choi doesn’t HAVE to visit that woman.

      Yum,
      Despite Ada’s anger and sacrifices towards her mother, Ada eventually forgave her is back on talking terms after her mother became a Christian. A family can overcome as long as both parties agree to meet each other halfway out of love.

        I didn’t realize Ada did that “kept and paid” by another man.

        However, I find it’s interesting when people claim they find themselves in “christianity”. I don’t have anything against that religion or any, but it’s a shame that alot of people that have practiced chinese folk religion (basically it’s customs related to festivals) abandon them in favor of popular religions.

        I’m not saying anything bad about christianity. it’s just interesting that alot of people are abandoning the traditional ways in favor of new ones is all I mean.

    well who knows what happens behind closed doors. There is always both sides of the story. But its not about forgiving, he should see his father even if its just for the last time. If his step mother was that bothered about it, then she should just give father and son the space they need to be alone and stop talking to the press and letting the press disturb her ill husband.

    I highly doubted an uncle from his mother side would call the media, he’s on bad terms with his dad, so his mom side would probably have no problem reaching him. I don’t agree with Felix’s decision to cut off relations with his dad, personally, my feelings are simple as this, you don’t deny family no matter what they did … you may not have a close relationship, but you can’t cut the off. But then again, i saw a lot of family turmoil due to finances. I don’t know all the details, so i am not judging. Just my personal feelings.

    Whether the relatives are just calling Felix for financial aid or not, I think Felix should visit his father and forgive the past as this is his own father. We don’t want to regret things after certain persons pass away. The news is also giving a negative impact on Felix’s image.

      We honestly do not know the whole story so should not judge. Something really bad may have happened to cause Felix and his father’s relation to become estranged. It us also hard when you have a step mom and step siblings that you do not get along with. I can imagine his complicated it can get.

  16. LeilaFan says:

    Let just ASSUME this whole report is true, which I doubt. But.. Felix, you dissapointed me in 2 things:
    1. Felix’s mother passed away in 2000. Seven years later, his father remarried Mrs. Lau, ==== Felix, your birth-mother died. Your father did NOT cheat on your birth-mom with Mrs. Lau. In fact, he did not remarried until SEVEN years later. This is morally fine, you should also accept it.
    2. Mr. Wong had purchased a flat over $300,000 HKD years ago, and it is likely to be left for his current wife if he passes away. === Come on Felix, you can’t be this cheap. The flat yoru father and your stepmother share is ONLY $300,000 HKD. I am sure during your prime time & thirty years in the entertainment industry, you make MILLIONS of HKD, way way more than your father’s flat. Let him have the flat.
    Anyways, this news probably over-exaggerated!

    • MW replied:

      From the source video, sounds like they are still making mortgage payments. So, maybe the $300,000 HKD was only down payment?

        And, who has been making mortgage payments and for how long? The father’s own source of income may have ended twenty (20) years ago.

      • LeilaFan replied:

        I wondering too, how many siblings do Felix have? Aare there any source show that Felix pay for it?
        Like you said, the father is old, main source of income end 20 years ago.
        Then I wonder how big is flat is, so big that it took $300,000 HKD for 20 years to pay off the flat.
        I doubt if his father flat is that big nor that expensive.

      haha, but who paid the downpatment of hkd $300,000? my guess is, felix?

    • ease replied:

      if felix did not pay for the downpayment, then i agree with leilafan, fleix should let go, he made his millions, let the stepmom have the property/money, but she has to take care of his dad cos she got the property/money, she can’t keep both of her property.. mainland and hongkong, she has to sell one of them to foot the hospital bills etc

      • LeilaFan replied:

        Eventhough Felix pay the down payment, he should also let it go. It is only $300,000 HKD. The 84 year olds sick man is his biological father, who work to raise him when he was a baby. Even if Felix got his first job at age 18, it is still his father help raise him till then.
        So even if he pay the $300,000 HKD down payment, just let it go please. No money in this world is worth more than your father.
        And it just $300,000 HKD, I repeat Felix during his prime time & thirty years in the entertainment industry, he make MILLIONS of HKD, way way more than what ever that down payment of your father’s flat.

      • Mydatewithspring replied:

        That’s what I want to express too. No matter how bad his stepmom is, Felix only has one father. He should take the high road and let go of his ego because this is the only father he has. If it is just because of the 300,000 HKD house, does it mean the father and son bond is worth less than that? Felix is disappointing as a son if he can’t take the high road and visit his old man. It reminds me of Gordon Liu who were victimized by his own children.
