As famous Taiwanese host Chang Fei and singer Fei Yu-ching are, there are still people who aren’t aware that the brothers have an older sister, Jenny Fei, who bowed out of showbiz over 30 years ago. She was then ordained as a Buddhist monk and became known as Venerable Heng Shu, although she recently started dabbling in the diamond trade as a means to earn money.
Earlier this week, Taiwanese media went to town with shocking reports that the 70-year-old owes over 20 loansharks a total of NT$30mil (S$1.4 mil). On March 16, Heng Shu updated her Facebook to say, “I’m on the way to the United States to meet the boss of my Israeli diamond dealer, who has expressed his interest to support me to become the biggest diamond dealer in Asia. [With his help], I will soon get over the current hardships.”
