At Christmas 2009 I was surfing on the internet, looking what was published about me. It surprised how much there was. I wondered how much there is about someone from before the internet period. Obviously Barbara was the first person I thought off. I knew already in 1985 that Barbara had died, I didn't know what caused her death and I didn't know what she had done after 1981.
Wow! I couldn't believe what I saw. When I read the article in Wikipedia I knew, this was Barbara! I started reading the articles and the websites of the fans. I noticed there was nothing at all about our relation. I wrote a few mails to a few websites saying that I still have some memories and pictures. There came no reaction. I noticed that recently very few new items were published about Barbara and some websites didn't even exist anymore. I guessed after so many years Barbara was forgotten.
On New Year's Day I went to visit my parents, my brothers were there as well. Together we came with the idea to make a YouTube video and then see what happens. We had a great time that day recalling memories. My father found loads of pictures (he even kept the negatives). We called the video "a love story nobody knew" as it seems that nobody was interested in our relation. Later I found out that Barbara did talk about our relation in HK but the reporters were more interested in her life in HK and her relation with Kent.
After I published the YouTube video, the fan club I had mailed contacted me. The problem was that my mail was in English, they first had to find someone to translate that into Chinese, and therefore it took so long.
(thanks to Natalie for the translation)
