The mother of the late Hong Kong singer-actress Anita Mui was granted HK$250,000 (S$43,000) for her 95th birthday party, China Press reported. Mui, the Cantopop diva, passed away in 2003 at the age of 40 due to cervical cancer. She had set up a trust fund that prevented her mother and elder brother from misusing her inheritance by providing them monthly funds. Every month, her mother is given HK$70,000 but she and her eldest son (Mui’s brother) were dissatisfied with the amount and had tried to request for the monthly funds to be increased to HK$200,000, and even tried to get the entire inheritance of HK$71million at one go. Her mother had been declared bankrupt twice. She applied for more than HK$200,000 for her 95th birthday bash and was granted HK$250,000 by the judge. There were 20 tables at the party. She came dressed in cheongsam and adorned with jewellery such as a jade ring, earrings and a necklace. She received gifts such as a golden statue of the Goddess of Mercy and a golden peach. She, however, refused to reveal how much she had spent for the lavish event.
