The link in Wubing’s message (4.19.11) above is to a story by Cheong Poh Kwan, “Vicki Zhao and Faye Wong’s favourite pastime,” which appeared in Singapore’s Straits Times on 18 April 2011. Here are some excerpts:
CHINA’S top actress Vicki Zhao Wei has been photographed dining and shopping with her pop diva friend Faye Wong on many occasions, but dining and shopping are apparently not their favourite pastimes. Instead, Zhao revealed that they almost always gather to ‘fang sheng’ these days as both are devout Buddhists. ‘Fang sheng’ is the release of animals like birds and tortoises back to their natural environment. It is a Buddhist way to show compassion for animals and all other sentient beings. . . . The 35-year-old star, now a Singapore permanent resident, said she will catch Faye Wong’s upcoming concert here if her schedule allows. Zhao had also reportedly played host to Wong during her previous visit here.
The story also includes a video interview of Vicki! Here are stills from the video:
