Hong Kong actor Mat Yeung (楊明) hopes to turn a new page after being sentenced to jail for driving under influence. While Mat continues to work on himself, he also reportedly finds solace in the bible and converts his religion from Buddhism to Christianity.
Prior to the sentencing, Mat and girlfriend Lisa Chong (莊思明) were Buddhists and were often seen visiting temples to ask for God’s blessing to overcome his challenges. Mat was even seen kneeling down praying with incense and burning large bags of gold and silver paper. To show his sincerity at the time, Mat also volunteered to sweep the temple’s floor and collect the burnt incense.
Once Mat was released from jail, Mat was reportedly introduced to Christianity by TVB executive Virginia Lok (乐易玲) and he gradually welcomed the new faith. Having been converted, Mat is often seen visiting the church.
