Reflections of April and December: Anita Mui and Leslie Cheung’s Passing (Excerpt 3)
I noticed a lot of women in their late 20s and early 30s. Many of them could be construed as plain, a few had an extreme sense of style, any many of a certain economic background.
It made a lot of sense to me, as Anita Mui was the extremely poor girl, who started to work at four at an amusement park to help make ends meet and because she was blessed with a voice and an ability to steal hearts. She climbed a hard ladder and made her a star.
She often referred to herself as “unbeautiful,” and that her regret was she was, “uneducated,” and “did not have much schooling.” I wish she didn’t. We loved her regardless, Anita was a reflection and heroine for the underclass and the plain over looked, weird girls and boys everywhere. I for one is of the later.
