After spending two weeks holidaying in Europe, Sammi Cheng is finally back in Hongkong. And last night, she attended a breast cancer awareness event where she also met the press.
While her recent holiday was a much-needed break for the singer — especially after her 13-night concert at the Hongkong Coliseumand the Andy Hui cheating scandal that shook Asia — Sammi says that she’s still not feeling all that well-rested yet. “My body still feels very tired because we were out walking all day during the holiday. But my mind does feel more relaxed. It was a very happy trip. I am not young anymore. After turning 47, I realise that I get tired for no reason. I don’t feel like working yet for the next two months, a person should take a rest when it’s the right time. You can’t earn all the money in the world!”
She also added that she already has work scheduled in December and that she hopes to enroll in theology courses before that.

She was then asked about getting snapped by fans who had bumped into her and Andy when they were on holiday and how everyone had commented that they looked very sweet together. “It’s hard to avoid getting photographed,” she laughed. “Apart from the photos that were taken secretly, most people mean no harm. They will usually ask if they can take a photo with me. But if I look ugly that day or if I didn’t draw my eyebrows, I will politely reject them.”
But what about her and Andy looking lovey-dovey in all the pics? “We’re the same with each other! Nothing special, very ordinary,” she said. As for whether her relationship with Andy has deepened after the trip, Sammi said: “No! It’s the same as before lah! We’re neither extra sweet to each other nor less sweet to each other. I believe that it should be natural, everything has a process.”
After the scandal broke in April, it was announced that Andy would be taking an indefinite break from work. When reporters asked Sammi if her husband would be returning to work any time soon, she said: “Let him answer it himself! Everything has a process. I believe he needs to first reorganise himself, and reflect on himself. I personally am in no hurry to see him go back to work. Instead [he should] slowly work on himself, think about what he did. It’s more important that he reorganise himself, work can wait.”
