Shanghai woman to donate $1.5 million apartment to the government after getting inspired by Chow Yun-fat
A Shanghai woman and her daughter were inspired by beloved Hong Kong actor Chow Yun-fat’s decision to donate his entire fortune to charity.

Some celebrities like to go all out on their birthday parties, but Hong Kong actor Chow Yun-Fat, who just celebrated his on Saturday, May 18, opted to go hiking with some of his friends.
The recently-turned 64-year-old actor was joined by more than 20 people, according to The Straits Times. This includes Hong Kong actors Julian Cheung, Anita Yuen, Nina Paw, and artists like Liu Kai Chi, Kenny Wong, and Catherine Chau.
Hong Kong superstar Chow Yun-Fat had a terrible accident while filming his scene for “Sunny Days” that resulted in the actor receiving five stitches for the wound.

Many Chinese internet users were probably shocked when the rumor of Chow Yun-Fat’s demise began circulating on Chinese internet on Monday. Thankfully, the news has been officially debunked. As it turns out, this is nothing more than an internet celebrity death hoax.

As workers rushed to clean up the aftermath, a passerby noticed a familiar figure picking up branches and clearing them from the roads. The passerby pulled over to confirm the man’s identity, and his quick stop yielded a selfie with one of the most famous actors in the world.
