On 9th October, there was an amber rainstorm warning as Tropical Storm Lionrock edges closer to city in Hong Kong and many activities were cancelled as a result.
Sammi Cheng (鄭秀文) and Rabeea Yeung (楊洛婷) were supposed to attend an activity at Hysan Place in Causeway Bay but it was cancelled because of the typhoon. Sammi posted an online message at 2.30pm: “Life is indeed unpredictable. Let’s focus on doing our parts well and be on standby. #cannot blame on the weather #do my part well #understand the organisers’ difficulties #safety is the most important #life is full of uncertainties”
Subsequently, Sammi made another update on Instagram: “It is a good timing. I was informed of the cancellation after applying makeup. It does not matter. It is time to wash my hair and remove the makeup. #remain positive #I do not need to eat but must complete the lipstick. #remove makeup after applying it #sorry for the cancellation #sorry for disappointing my fans #safety is the top priority”
In addition, MIRROR group member, Ian Chan (陳卓賢), Anson Kong (江𤒹生) and Alton Wong (王智德) planned to turn up at an event in Mong Kok but it was cancelled because of the typhoon.
They urged their fans to be extra cautious and Anson’s fans said: “Yes, the activity is cancelled today. Please be careful and stay in safe places.”
