Lady Anita Mui: I'm not the one who speaks with a foreign passport.
In 1989, Anita Mui was awarded the Best actress of Hong Kong Film Awards by Rouge Buckle, and in the same year, 64 events erupted in China. Anita MUI is actively involved in the activism initiative and has contributed to the Canary campaign , inviting the Hong Kong pro-democracy activists to the United States and Canada to raise funds for overseas pro-democracy groups. She also refused to work in China, and even resigned from Stanley Kwan's "Ruan Lingyu", which she had built for her.
More than 10 years in the past, China's reform and opening up, flourishing, many stars began to refuse to comment on the 64 incident, but Anita Mui is still "loyal to the Democratic movement." She was heroic, said such a sentence: "If I support the 64 side of the halfway, will be good to waste all the things I have done, now give up, even chance are not." 」
In front of the trap, she never give up, said is a bet, "I have already taken the Canadian passport (passport), a year or two will go to live." Before 64, I will actively go to apply for residency, but after 64, I think well clearly, I do not go. I'm not the kind of person who dares to stand up and speak with a passport. I tried to 97, during this period, I will still stay in Hong Kong, try my best, so that I can not regret this life. 」
After 64, I thought clearly, I don't want to go to Canada. I'm not the kind of person who dares to stand up and speak with a passport.
2004 Anita Mui's funeral, not only the Hong Kong superstar to mourn, 64 student movement leader Kaixi also attended. Anita Mui, known as the daughter of Hong Kong, always contributes to justice, and many Hong Kong people lament that she has left Hong Kong, but it is still different. She is still in the Hong Kong, do not know what will be?
Once someone asked me, Anita Mui, if you choose, would you rather be a happy ordinary person, or a more shiny star? I would like to choose to be a happy and ordinary honest person. But of course, when I choose this line, I have to go all out to do my best, so this is my own choice. But sometimes it is very contradictory, if one day, I leave this stage, leave this music, leave this entertainment circle, and really how many people will think of me? Do you remember Anita Mui's character? I do not want you to promise, I only hope that in one evening after dinner, open the window, looking up at the stars, when you see one of the stars, you will think of a once well-known name, a once for you to bring less joy friend, her name is Anita Mui.

Take a little MUI heroism on the road!
About love, she said ...
I still have a vision for love, perhaps it is silly, but also endless. But I have experienced, fell and stood up, repeatedly defeated, only hope that the future better. Otherwise, what else can be! If it's hard and unhappy and living, then I hope to wake up every day hopeful.
The media asked her to be afraid of the old, she said:
Many people ask me, Anita Mui, are you afraid of old age? As long as I am old, in my memory still have a lot of rich things to my aftertaste, then I am not afraid of, if asked me afraid of the appearance of aging, I think all women are afraid, but it will not be too difficult to get through, the days are sad and too much.
I am not afraid of the old, I hope I will have their own ability to take care of themselves, live to sixty or seventy years old, but not after 70 years of age, because then may need to take care of others, I do not want to trouble people.
In the face of uncomfortable times, she has confessed to humor:
The chance of crying is much more than laughter, and sometimes crying is emotional fluctuations, I will feel a little helpless. I seldom cry in front of others, more time to cry at home. Sometimes I can be sentimental, a play has made me cry seven times. The most recent cry is the most powerful is: I do not know if you have seen the "Ghost eye", I am afraid to cry in the theater is too ugly like, so I rent a dish home to see, "Ghost eye" This set of play makes me cry to woo ...
If you ask me that period of time the most sad? I want to tell you, I really do not know, really do not understand, the past things I will not remember so clear, whether good or bad, do not remember, life is very short, happy process is the most important.
Facing death, she said:
What can I bring into a coffin if I ask for the day when I am old? I can be sure that only the same, is the truth.
I feel that life has come once just fine, wonderful live once is enough, next time don't come, really not fun. I think that the next life of people should be a small angel, or birds, you can fly freely fly!
