After being the chairman of the Chinese Artists Association of Hong Kong not long ago, Liza received an Honorary Doctor of Letters during the Congregation yesterday at the City University of Hong Kong. A lot of friends of hers (such as DoDo Cheng, TVB top officials Chan Chi Wan, Lok Yik Ling, Tsang Lai Junk, her god-daughter Ting Ting, etc)attended the ceremony to show support. Liza's presence created a little chaos after the Congregation ended. Lots of parents and students rushed to see the famous artist when she was taking pictures with other guests & friends.
With regards to this ceremony, Liza said that this was her first time attending this kind of event. When she walked into the campus, she felt like she was back to her student age. During the time when the professor talking about her biography, she was touched and reminded of what she did in the past. The reporters asked her if this is more important than other awards,she replied,"this is an academic achievement, of course it's more important." Liza said she would focus her energy on her front-stage performance as well as her work on chinese opera. In addition, she would continue participating in various charitable activities.
At yesterdsay's event, Mr.LKY said he would buy a bowl of Wonton Noodle for Liza to celebrate this occasion and later Liza would pay for their upcoming trip to Japan. "Why didn't u buy a present?" He said the tilted-heart-shaped pendant on the necklace that she was wearing was a gift from him for her birthday. He claimed that he spent 5 digit HKD on it.
Some newspaper also mentioned a bit about the inauguration of her office (Chairman of CAA of HK)at a restaurant in Hom Hum the night before yesterday. There were 110 plus tables sitting with lot of guests. That night, they set up an aution on "treasure" of Wah Kwong(god that ppl worship in chinese opera industry) and raised about 1.64 million HKD.
