In Memoriam- Yang Lina

It is with sadness that I post this news..that Yang Lina a former MediaCorp actress died of uterine cancer two days ago at age 47. She was one of the early pioneers when the then Singapore Broadcasting Corporation(SBC) created the Chinese Drama Division and started to produce very good dramas for local television and regional distriubtion. Her last TV appearance is in last syear's Pedrfect Cut 2 on Ch U.. I do not know her except to have seen her in the studios on occasions when I was engineer-in-charge of television in the 80s. She was very pretty and had a sweet smile.
Artistes and newbies show up at her wake to support her make-up artist hubby Chau Kim Wa and show respect. The artistes include
Chen Liping, Rayson Tan, Chen Shucheng, Belinda Lee, Shaun Chen, Chris lee, Fann Wong, Gurmit Singh, Pierce Png, Andrea Dcruz and many more. MediaCorp Management executives and staff also turned up to pay respects. They know they lost a good actress and friend.
