While Miriam Yeung (杨千嬅) maintains her fierce and glamorous looks on stage as a singer, she was spotted shockingly haggard without makeup at a recent shopping trip. Did caring for one-year-old son, Torres Ting (丁進諾), add to Miriam’s stress?

Lately, Miriam is busy researching information about schools in preparation for her son’s kindergarten entrance. Last week, she was spotted wearing a regular t-shirt and leggings with heavy bags under her eyes at a local supermarket.

Besides going barefaced, it was noticeable that Miriam has had sleepless nights worrying over her son’s future when dark circles were visible on her face. Miriam paid no attention to what reporters had to say about her new image and instead, expressed that her son’s future is more important. Because of the pressure, she fell ill and had to pass on the duties to her husband, Real Ting (丁子高).

An insider revealed that besides practicing entrance interviews with Torres, all of Miriam’s dinner outings with friends consist of talks about education. As well, all toys bought for Torres were related to learning.

Besides Miriam, Real also stressed the importance of playgroups and said, “I don’t want my son to enter school without knowing anything. I went to St. Joseph’s, and while I want my son to go there, I’ll have to see which playgroup matches his personality first.”

      That’s how ordinary people look without make up, assistants and having had a busy schedule.

        Same thought here. Instead of spending hours upon hours upon protecting her vanity, she’s spending the time bringing up her son. Good choice. I can remember many sleepless nights in the first year 🙂

        I think Miriam looks below average for her location as I have found ordinary HK people are really pretty and even the ordinary income people have pampered looking skin vs. Beijingers who no matter their social and educational status have wrinkles from the coal dust and dry weather.

      If her husband went to St. Joseph’s College (if that is the one on Garden Road) which is an excellent school in Hong Kong, his son will have a good chance to get in. Most schools will give priority to their alumni’s children.

      It seems that people (especially artistes) in Hong Kong are very concerned about sending their children to 1st class schools. Perhaps it has to do with status a lot, Lots of rich people start worrying and planning for their babies (under 1 years old) to enter top notch playgroups, nurseries, etc. Many have to spend HK$10,000 or more a month to send their toddlers to join some good English playgroups 2 to 3 times a week.

      In other words, if you are not rich, you will not be able to start your toddlers on the good tracks. Sad!

        I don’t think is always the case. My cousin started kindergarten in a private school ($2500 Canadian dollars per month)..she ended up in the same university, same program as her friend who went to a public school. I think it really depends on the kid.

          You are right because Canadian universities do not seem to care too much about graduates coming from good private schools. However, it is not the same in Hong Kong or the States. Those good universities, such as Ivy League colleges, put a lot of “focus” on the names of the high schools. It is always easier to get in if you are a graduate of a top-notch private high school.

          Therefore, if high school graduates in Hong Kong want to get into good American colleges, it matters then. Also there is a big difference in English language, as well as academic standards if you go to a “so-so” high school. The standards and quality of teachers vary a lot in Hong Kong. If you graduate from a good English school, your English proficiency will be 10+ times (especially verbal) better than someone who graduates from an okay high school.

          This isn’t entirely true. I think with ivies, like other private schools in the states, income is the #1 factor that decides a students’ fate. These schools aren’t cheap, they provide the best education or whatever, they do need applicants who can afford. Whats more, they also need them to come back as an alumni to keep the schools running. So yeah, everything is like business business business. Its amazing how everything is related to business.

          You have a good point, but it is very true that Ivy schools accept lots of students from private schools. It was reiterated by one of our relatives living in the States. He said that he was so glad that he sent his kids to private schools all the way from Grade 1 to 12. Otherwise his kids would have difficulty to enter Harvard University.

        • Crystal replied:

          And private high schools in the states means money, no? Lol. So there you have it, money is what attracts these colleges. Because I do think you have to pay to go to these private high schools, at least the ones my friends went to.

          I remember way back when I was doing college applications, many of my peers with good grades but with a poor to so-so financial family, did not get into these schools. However, when you got a mediocre student + filthy rich, BAM. It is very unfair.

          I don’t understand the hype with these universities. It is good for a student to set high goals and the rewards after you achieve it is that satisfying. However, I strongly believe someone’s intelligence should be based on themselves and not a school. The school should not be representing you. Its like with clothes. You wear the clothes, not the other way around. But that is just me.

          I hope the younger generations take it easy and understand that their lives belongs to them. Education is important but you have to live as well. I’ve seen it all, border line suicide because they failed their family’s expectations, depression, broken hearts, tears, sobbing, weeping, everything because they feel they’re failures for not getting into these so called prestigious schools. SPECIFICALLY IN THE ASIAN COMMUNITY.

          Heard it’s very competitive to get into the prestigious schools in HK. Aside from money, some schools require interviews with the kid and family to make sure they are the right fit. Or inside connections.

        that feels like such a slippery slope like you are embarking on a road of hell by spending more time researching and finagling a spot in a good kindergarten when you won’t spend that much personal attention making sure your baby understands their homework – I think it’s hard to trust others to really take care of your child and miracle teachers are rare. But I get that going to certain schools means you get exposure to different family backgrounds – since criminals have the money and greediness to shoot as high as possible, you could be paying top dollar to go to school with the descendants of serial killers (3 is the magic number and many organized criminals have exceeded that number early in their careers). Congratulations, you will help to embolden cold criminals by socially accepting them and then they can scope out your home knowing that they will never be home invaded but you might be if you aren’t nice to them, you invite their envy or they need the money or just because they are sadistic and that never goes away.

      The media should give her a break, she has been in the spotlight for a very long period of time. The stresses/work she gone through, of course it will take a toll on her physical image. She is a mother now, and I give her thumbs up for not needing to put make up on or in other words, “all dolled up” to appear in the public. You are a great mother Miriam!

        yeah, I don’t think it matters what people look like when they are off the job. Tilda Swinton seems to intentionally save on lipstick when not in a film simply because she is not offering her beauty for free on the red carpet. She probably doesn’t pay for any of her public appearance outfits hence they are so crazy but they succeed in getting her photographed.

        However, I really hope it’s just because she’s undergoing some stressful period right now because looking like that on a long-term basis may be signs of depression or disorder.

I wonder if she will even dare to have another one since it seems like even one is already stressing her out.

      1) yes I think she looks in pretty bad shape for someone 39. and that’s only mother of 1

      2) it’s too wannabe and sheep-like to stress out over a 1 yr old and interviews.

      half of these ‘uneducated’ stars are also pretentiously also trying to rub shoulders in private schools with the real wealthy old rich.

      3)i don’t think Mariam is that ‘sacrificial’ of a mother, to put herself and all her needs on a back burner.

      i recall her post-natal entourage of TEN people when she delivered – so many to look after her, look after her baby. that seemed so diva.

      wonder how moms back in the good old days took care of all their kids themselve, and still managed to run their households sole-handedly.

      and the way these ‘stars’ acted (so precious, so princessy) … you’d think they were all born with 5 maids themselves to help out.

        She does look under the weather for a 39-year old considering that she’s only a mother of 1. Some women do look more weathered and aged, after just having one child. You can even see the same with Flora Chan when she had her daughter, just not as bad looking as these.

        Boys are usually more difficult to work with than girls, the reverse is true once they strike puberty.

        I see a lot of real-life women who had 3 children and still look and feel great. Miriam doesn’t even have any real idea what stress really means, unless she lived the life of Kenny Bee, Prudence Liew, Gigi Lai, Angie Chiu or Loletta Chu; all of those have at least 3 children of their own.

        Above all of that, there will be trade-offs when women have to take on motherhood, whether an everyday kind of woman or member of the glitterati. They include but not limited to: place career aside for childcare. Yes, Miriam’s stardom career has taken a major turn since she had her son, like many star parents. The only one defying that curse is Kay Tse and Louis Cheung, as their popularity has risen after the wedding and the birth of their son, James.

        Good points Nomad as always. I almost forgot that she had like 10 maids helping her out and she is stressed like this?? What about others that have way more kids and have no help at all.

          Hi Nomad,
          Nice to see you here. I have not been on AF because I forgot my password and do not know where I placed it since I have it written down due to my bad memory. I also get lazy to sign in as well. I do not go using different usernames because I feel fake doing so. I only go here because I do not need to sign in. Really miss you and everyone at AF though.

          Now everytime we see a beautiful face with big eyes we can start wondering is he/she a male/female.
          Anyone knows foolproof methods to identify natural beauty vs plastic surgery beauty and male/female beauty just from looking at the person???? Scary world out there – I see fake people, sometimes they don’t know they’re fake….

          WOW,thanks for the link TVBFanatic. Make up truly can transform a person but doesn’t it take a lot of work if you had to do that on a day to day basis?? Goodness, I would be way too lazy to. Thank goodness I don’t wear make up or am dependent on it or else I would scare myself before I scare others.

        there’s no way this is a publicity stunt, right? like maybe for some ad she will do in the future about rejuvenating beauty.

          LOL … that would be a good marketing ploy.

          Use product X and stop look like Mariam pre-makeup packaging, with all the ravages of motherhood (of only ONE + with hired help).

          Makeup can enhance, but yet block and strip the face of color longterm … and kinda of ‘dye’ the face to another shade (esp eyelid area).

          She will probably look better if she went au naturel for a month, and get exposed to some healthy doses of Vit D

          My parents have always told me about the long term negative effects of make up on skin so are highly against wearing it on a day to day basis. Once you are dependent on it, you can’t look decent without it. It is no wonder those that wear it a lot look all pale and sick without… Did the make up truly strip your face/skin of its natural color???

          I think it is really hard for a celebrity not to wear any makeup. Also heavy makeup during filming would make a person’s skin worse. That is the reason why they need to do facials all the time.

          True that they have no choice when filming, but when they are not filming it’s not like they have to. But a lot of them choose to since they have become dependent on it. They can wear light make up instead of the really thick and dark make up that is required during filming.

      I noticed some asians are really too kiasu (Singaporean words of scared to lose). I mean the son is only 1 year old & isn’t it fanatic to start worrying into going a famous school? Yes, maybe a reputable school is important but that doesn’t guarantee your child will really excel. It has to do with the child himself/herself. Parents these days or I should rather say Asian parents are way too crazy over school issues.

      Coming to her looking haggard, I think most people (including celebrities) look like that without make-up. That’s why having make-up on is so important to them.

        my parents are the opposite of that but I can see that medically, we would have been better served if they had been more ambitious and competitive – underneath it all, both of them were still babies who needed to be cared for instead of parents taking charge of someone more vulnerable

      Okay, I don’t think there’s anything that bad about Miriam because it’s a combo of no makeup plus being caught with that expression on her face, but this picture is freaking me out anytime I open the home page. lol

      I would like to think that was also just a bad picture.

      I recalled the first year. I think I looked haggard and old.

      I breast fed my son for more than a year. He would continue to still wake up for night feeds all the way till 2+.

      I remembered having feed every 2-3hrs everyday.

      It meant I never had a even a full 4 hr sleep at anytime of the day/night as I need to feed him 7~8 times per day.

      How to look great with such irregular and bad quality of sleep/rest.

          Right from the start, I thought Torres was a rather pretentious name for a Chinese. (along with other made-up names in general, or deliberate weird spellings = reeks ESL, or illiterate parents)

          Reeks wannabe outstanding high profile (in not a good way), especially if the kid turns out to be someone shy and low key.

          As far as names go – imo, simpler is always classier.

          People in Hong Kong all like very unusual, weird, and funny names. I have a friend’s son named “Heman”. I met him when he was 11 years old. He was only a short, tiny, and small-built boy, and I hope he will grow up to a real “Heman”.

          I agree with you, “As far as names go – simpler is always classier.”
