Even though former Hongkong actress Gigi Lai retired from showbiz 12 years ago, she still has a strong online following, particularly on Facebook, where she frequently posts updates about her personal life.
Can you believe Gigi's turning 49 this year?
On February 23, the 48-year-old posted a series of photos, sharing that she had gone out for some fresh air.
“Took the opportunity to remove my make-up, to let my skin breathe. Taking a deep breath to replenish the Vitamin D in my body through the sun’s rays. Another day filled with energy,” she wrote.
In the pictures, Gigi, who’s dressed casually, poses for a few pictures near what appears to be a lake. Her glowing skin and youthful appearance led a number of netizens to rave about her beauty, with one writing, “You look so fresh even without make-up!”

Then there were those who couldn’t help but notice Gigi’s resemblance to other actresses.
“You look so much like Tavia Yeung," wrote one netizen, while another commented, “I thought this was Michelle Reis at first."
Gigi is best known for her appearances in the Young and Dangerous film series, as well as her roles in hit TVB dramas like The Heaven Sword and Dragon Saber, War and Beauty and Gem of Life. She tied the knot with businessman Patrick Ma in 2008, and retired the same year to take over her brother’s aesthetic clinic business after he was seriously injured in a car accident the year prior.
Is it just us or does Gigi look better now than she did in 2000?
