Yang Mi is a Dictating and Arrogant Daughter-in-Law?

Since marrying Hawick Lau (劉愷威) and giving birth to their baby daughter, several reports suggested that Yang Mi (楊冪) posed as a difficult daughter-in-law. Having spent the first month of her postpartum recovery under the same roof as Hawick’s parents, Yang Mi was allegedly dictating and arrogant, resulting in numerous conflicts.

When Yang Mi had her wedding with Hawick in Bali, Indonesia, there were already rumors that she did not get along with her in-laws. After one month of living with them in the Shatin district, she reportedly wanted to move out. Soon enough, the couple later relocated to a flat in Kowloon City, which is approximated to be worth $60 million HKD.

Although Hawick denied the family conflicts, it was said that Yang Mi’s differences with her in-laws became unbearable. According to tabloids, she always needed to have things her way. Hawick’s parents reportedly endured her behavior only because of their son and granddaughter.

Hawick’s Mother Acts as Nanny?

Last Monday, reporters spotted Yang Mi and Hawick in Kowloon City, ordering a cake for their baby daughter in time to celebrate her two-month arrival. In a white dress, Yang Mi browsed through a bakery with her husband by her side. Meanwhile, Hawick’s mother was spotted shopping for groceries and diapers. Carrying two bags all by herself, she seemed like a nanny instead.

    I’ve heard a lot of mainlanders are very spoilt from a male friend of mine from china. He says times have changed, if the above report is true, I wont be surprised esp when she thinks she is above average woman just because she’s an actress.

      Agreed. Especially if she’s the only child and from a well to do family…the so called over pampered child would be a nightmare for her in laws and pity her hub too to be stuck in the middle.

      Years ago when HK’ers were invading Vancouver Canada, they same was said about HongKongers : Rude and pushy.

        I don’t think any of the above comments said that mainlanders are rude and pushy. Maybe you took it the wrong way? But I can see how many native Canadians would see HKers, Asians, or even immigrants for that matter, as rude and pushy. The last time I checked, China is part of Asia, so I am pretty sure the complaints were not directed to HKers specifically. We are all Chinese, and are viewed the same by those who are not culturally-apt. But in my own experience, I have been culturally shocked when I was in China because of how people there don’t follow rules, case in point- I was in line, but a lady just come and cut in front of me. If you think mainland Chinese are not rude and pushy, you must not have been to China. HK, whether it is historically or currently, is still seen as a place where people can get good education, healthy food consumption, and live in a more civilized society. Why do you think there are still so many people who want to go to HK from mainland? There outta be a reason, right?

        @Jen,

        Local Canadians gave Vancouver the nickname “Hongcouver” and not in a positive way. I just think it’s ironic that rude and loud HKer’s look down on rude and loud mainlanders.
        Decades ago in the mid-70s, a big campaign was launched to educate HK’ers to stop tossing refuse on the ground, which resembled a litter storm when the wind picked up. Today, there are still some HKers who throw furniture away by tossing them out of high-rise windows.
        If HK is so great as you imply, why do so many HKers want a foreign education in the west?

        I agree with both of you guys, Hker’s can be rude but people in China are much worst. From past experiences in China to Hong Kong & now in Australia they are just plain rude, loud & impatient not polite people. I had similar experiences when I was waiting in line for something in HK these mainlanders decided to cut the line and when I had a go at them the just put their ear phones on and pretend I’m not there. Hong Kong people are rude but I wouldn’t describe them as pushy more arrogant& judgemental.

        _________________________________________

        Well, my thought is that because HK has been invaded by many of such mainlanders, and a majority of them immigrated in 1997.

        @ Jen C.

        I don’t think msxie’s question is on emigration. His/her question is why Hong’ers continue to pursue their education in the West if HK were so great and had everything as purported. Many of those who had pursued western education do not necessarily emigrate and settle there.

    • Jen C replied:

      Got it, Terminator. Thanks for explaining. I think most Asians have the perception that a Western education is more “valuable,” despite even high standards such as the case in Singapore. I think Singapore has one of the better educational systems in Southeast Asia, but every year, there are still a number of students coming to the U.S. to pursue what seems to them, a “better” education. In some ways, I can agree, as the research and resources may at times be richer in the Western countries.

        Not sure if its true but I heard education is a lot tougher over there than say in England, along with the non ranking system its probably a less stressful environment to study in

      Only changes for the parents. If the son turns out to be listening to the wife only, then they lost their son. My circle of friends, 9 out of 10 listen to the wives/gfs. If the wives/gfs are considerate, they are fortunately. However, most of the time they will want things their way and the husband/bfs will follow. The guy’s parents will have to endure because they love the son and do not want to cause any problem to their relationship. If only more women and more men are considerate when in a relationship. For those dictator wives/gfs, please remember while u have parents, your other half has it too. What if ur bro’s gf/wife does that to your parents? Will you be happy?

        Seems more like the Laus gained a DIL (and grandchild) but the Yangs lost a daughter.

        Men who pursue a successful independent woman shouldn’t expect her to automatically take the back seat.

    Go away Yang Mi, you are a spoilt brat. Zhang Ziyi is more down to earth, and she is an international star! Hate people who was arrogant and demanding particularly to the older folks!

    • ZZY is more down to earth? We don’t know for sure. Many years ago she was sitting next to my MIL in a train leading them from one terminal to another in Changi and while gesturing to her assistant, she accidentally poked my MIL’s face. She then looked at my MIL and looked away without saying sorry. Even if she wasn’t in a good mood that day, she’s a public figure and it wont hurt to just apologize to uphold her image.

      Linda Chung on the other hand, is a very polite and likeable girl. Again at Changi, she accidentally lightly bumped my MIL while she was rushing with another TVB star and she turned around and say in Cantonese ‘So sorry!’. This was last year.

        Just because she is paying the bills does not mean that she can be bossy. We are talking about mannerism here. Pretty sure she is only “helping” because Lau Dan, his wife, and Hawick are not poor. Hawick should have known about her personality since they dated for awhile, but hey, he’s into that fake plastic beauty so he and his family are stuck with it. Feel bad for Lau Dan and his wife. Have watched many TVB series with Lau Dan in it and I don’t think he’s a bad in-law or else TVB stops hiring him. Yang Mi is not that hot and famous but she is already showing her diva attitude.

        not to defend arrogant obnoxious mainlanders, but HKers always had the air of being high and mighty toward the mainlanders, who are now behaving the same way in a role reversal of sorts. While the Brits treated HKers as second and third class citizens back in the early colonial days, HKers were obsequious and deferential to their British overlords, but snobby toward mainland Chinese and dark-skinned SE Asians.
        Abuse toward Filipino and Indonesian maids by HKers is still common these days.

        Well, a lot of Chinese actresses/actors are rich. Most of the things in this world now are made in China, mostly raw mat from China. They are dominating the market. Perhaps one of the reason why these ppl think they are superior? Especially now with their single child policy, parents tend to spoil their one and only child and giving them all the luxury lifestyle they want. 2 incomes to feed 1 child. It is more than enough. But by the time for the child to feed 2 mouths, there’s when prob arises. Parents no longer instil good values like our folks did. Its more to “educate” with money and materialistic. Which is why, manners, respects are fading among them now… So pathetic.

      True, however, most of us brush up against some mainlanders one way or another, and got the attitude overview from their behavior, then the paps come and said a mainlander actress act like how we experienced dealing with commoner mainlanders, so not because of the mag that we think mainlanders that way. It’s how they acted normally, and we read the mags and confirm that if this is true, it’s normal lol.

      Saw that show too and agree with you. William Feng was rumoured to like her a lot but I bet he’s happy nothing eventuate. She was only good in ‘Gong’, everything after that is nothing much.

      I don’t think Hawick had a serious girlfriend for a long time and when she picked him, goodbye to bachelorhood. Love is blind and everyone can tell he gives in too much and he should put his foot down. Haven’t he learned from all the series that he has filmed?

      If Hawick and YM are using the mom as a maid then why don’t they just let the mom buy the stuff on her own time. When we go to grocery store with my mom, we (siblings and my husband) just go to other stores and meet my mom somewhere later. Big deal!

    i’m beginning to think that people are hating on her because she’s a mainlander, not because of what she’s doing to her in-laws(which at this point is totally based on rumors).

    am i the only one that sees the irony when hkers are calling them rude, arrogant, and annoying (note, the “ching cong ling long” stereotypes are based on hker’s canto)?
    hkers feel that mainlanders are “above” them, yet they call mainlanders “locusts”?

    just face it. hkers dislike the mainlanders when they were dirty, rural, country-bumpkin poorer and closed from the world (of which hk was the only gateway to it, and thus, prospered from it), now they hate them because they’re richer and more open (something that hk historically have “campaigned” for). this is what happens when you let british aristocracy rule you.

      And, to put Yang Mi in her place. You know, make sure she’s an obedient DIL (despite her success).

      @Pbot – Disagree.

      I think HK was a lot better until Mainlanders started immigrating there in droves. They were a lot cleaner, genteel and courteous.

      Many Mainlanders never got the education that HKers received on etiquette. Of course, the Mainlanders that usually immigrate there were poor to begin with. But that’s only for some mainland areas. Other cities like Shanghai, Guangzhou, Beijing, etc. have evolved to become like HK. I wouldn’t say HK thinks Mainlanders are superior to them – i don’t think they’ll ever admit to that, even if it becomes the case someday. They’re too prideful. But they don’t hate on Mainlanders because of it.

      I think HK hates mainlanders more for the fact that they hate them but need them financially than just because of manners, education, etc.

      I hate to say this but there is some basis for the hatred or rather sick of them sort of behaviour. In HK I can hear the announcer repeatedly repeating the same statement in Mandarin; “The guest in the ferris wheel please sit down”.

      Then in Taipei Taiwan I kept hearing tourist guides saying in Mandarin “Our mainlender friends please respect our rules and regulations and please step off the grass!!”

      That sort. I get the frustration. It’s just that whatever they say no one is listening. Why? Arrogance or ignorance?

      Can’t stand when people (bikers/mainlanders/HKers/purple people/green people/whoever) show utter disregard for rules. No argument there.

      But, it seems a bit unfair and irresponsible for the media to make up fake rubbish about a young mother (Yang Mi), who could easily fall into post-partum depression, simply because they think she belongs to such a nonchalant/callous group. If the media “must” make Yang Mi walk on eggshells, then she better not take any favors from her in-laws. Better to hire help than to let her in-laws help.

        And, why is Yang Mi getting all the blame? How about Hawick? Women get no respect.

    Hate to say this but this marriage will not last. It will go the way of Nicholas Tse and Cecilia Cheung. From the diva attitude of Yang Mi, I can understand the difficults of the in-laws. I am surprised that Yang-Mi’s parents did not intervene and try to lam the situation down with words to their daughter. Poor Hawick is caught in the middle but on second thought, he chose to marry this trophy wife thus he had to expect the worse and hope for the best. Just hope their child is not embroiled with this nasty situation.

    Highly doubt the Laus will let Yang Mi escape. The Laus know her worth.

    I was a tourist in HK and though this may not be representative of all mainlanders, but every time someone cut the line, publicly poo’ed, ate on the subway, talked loudly, that person was a mainlander. This made our trip a bit more chaotic and less enjoyable compared to our previous pre-97 trips. Pity!

      I agree with you. As a frequent visitor to HK, I’ve experienced this first hand myself many times.

    Questionable validity of the report. Who wants to live with their In-Laws in this days and age? I don’t even expect my husband to live with my parents or vice versa. As for HK vs Mainlanders. Well, many Asians are inconsiderate spoiled brats, and it is seen as justified as long as you have money. I’ve experienced Racism and terrible attitude in HK (even from the cops), and I’m sure I will experience in Mainland as well (based on my ABC friend’s feedback). The privileged kids are rude and stuck-up in both places. Even the upper middle class FOBs we have to deal with here in the US are rude and snooty (and that don’t just include HK/Mainlanders). If you must moan and complain, go teach your kids better manners so they don’t turn up that way.

      There are rude and inconsiderate folks from all walks of life and ethnicities. These folks just think about themselves and themselves only before others. Good manners and etiquette are quickly disappearing. Even able bodied “po” or illegal folks are rude and inconsiderate in the United States expecting that they deserve welfare, free medical care and other social services paid for by hard-working taxpayers. Many of these same folks are too lazy to work, too lazy to do well or stay in school or establish a good work ethic and learn decent morals to perpetuate to their offsprings.

      Heck, some people don’t even want to live with their “own” parents (who nag endlessly, demand too much, inconsiderate of their offsprings’s busy schedules, etc.)
