There are kind elders around my father who lost my childhood
I can paint well under the guidance of my uncle

Weng Meiling’s death is initially believed to have no suspicious cause. However, due to the complexity of Weng’s family situation and an unidentified identity, the police have been unable to classify the case for a long time. Everything has to be formally classified after her relatives arrive to confirm the corpse and confirm the identity. At present, it is tentatively scheduled to be handled as a "suicide case".

Weng Meiling spent her childhood in Hong Kong, and her biological father died in an accident. Her mother decided to take Weng Meiling to settle in the UK with her to avoid touching the scene. It was 1970, and Weng Meiling was still the only one. Eleven year old girl.

Highly noticed

Weng’s mother is named Zhang Mingru, and Weng Meiling’s stepfather is named Liao Jintang, and the family lives in London. Liao Jintang runs a roast meat shop in London's Chinatown. Because of his famous name, local overseas Chinese call him "Youjitang". Later, Liao Jintang left London because he wanted to open a restaurant in Edinburgh, Scotland. Later, Weng Mu and Weng Meiling went to a small town in Histon, Cambridgeshire to run a takeaway food store, specializing in fish and French fries.

Weng Meiling completed secondary school in Cambridgeshire, and then studied textile design at the Central College of Art in the UK. On February 18, 1980, Weng Meiling felt that "natural beauty is hard to give up", so she participated in the third Miss Chinatown election hosted by the British Chinese Chamber of Commerce and was elected runner-up. When she finished her studies, she was in London. After working in a company for two years, Weng Meiling was invited to be the emcee of the Miss Chinatown election in 1981. Her eloquence and appearance attracted the attention of local overseas Chinese. After that, she returned to Hong Kong and participated in the Miss Hong Kong election in 1982. She was once a "dark horse", but due to her body shape, she could not make it into the top three, but this also became her entry into the entertainment circle. Stepping stones. At first, she was assigned as the host of "Women's New Attitude", but after her acting potential was discovered, she was transferred to the drama team. Her first TV series is "Thirteen Girls".

The mystery of life experience

Weng Meiling is a talkative girl, but she rarely mentions family affairs even if she is a close friend. I still remember that when she first debuted, every time we asked her questions, a middle-aged man was always answering for her. When we asked her if he was her precious relative, she just said that he was the surrogate father and stopped talking. In fact, she had doubted her special background. Finally, it was reported that Weng Meiling was really an orphan. Her mother was only her surrogate mother, but she regarded her as her own. Therefore, Weng Meiling has never doubted her life experience, but she recently learned of her appearance, which caused depression. It doesn't matter if she has world-weariness. Weng Meiling's closest relative in Hong Kong can be said to be her Qi Niang, Ms. Chen. When Weng Meiling was three years old, she was given a deed to her, and Ms. Chen also loved Weng. When Weng Meiling was alone in Hong Kong, she was fortunate to live in Ms. Chen’s home. After Weng Meiling’s accident, Ms. Chen wanted to go through the formalities for Weng Meiling’s body recognition. But because there is no direct relationship, so to no avail. Later, we got the authorization letter from Weng’s mother to accept her claim. Ms. Chen's husband is a civil servant and lives in Tin Kwong Road, Kowloon.

Weng Meiling's uncle also loved her very much. In her childhood, he often taught her to paint, which gradually made Weng Meiling interested in painting, and every painting that Weng Meiling painted has a certain level.

In fact, there are so many people around Weng Meiling who love her, why do they think of committing suicide?

幼年喪父身邊盡是慈祥長者
在舅父教導下畫得一手好畫

翁美玲之死,初步相信死因無可疑,但因翁之家境複雜以致身份未明,令到警方遲遲仍未能將案分類,一切有待其親人趕抵認屍,確定身份後,才正式分類,但現時暫定爲「自殺案」處理。

翁美玲的幼年在香港渡過,而她的生父在一次意外中去世,她的母親爲免觸景傷情,遂決定携同翁美玲到英國定居,當時是一九七〇年,而翁美玲還是一個只有十一歲的小女孩。

備受注目

翁母名張明如,翁美玲的後父名廖錦棠,一家人在倫敦生活。廖錦棠在倫敦唐人街主持燒臘店,因他的字號頗負盛名,故當地華僑均稱他爲「油鷄棠」。後來廖錦棠因要前往蘇格蘭愛丁堡開飯店,便離開倫敦。及後,翁母則帶同翁美玲往劍橋郡希斯頓的一個小鎮經營外賣食品店,專門出售炸魚和炸薯條。

翁美玲在劍橋郡完成中學課程,接着便在英國中央藝術學院修讀紡織設計。一九八〇年二月十八日,翁美玲深感「天生麗質難自棄」,便参加由英國華商會主辦的第三屆華埠小姐選舉,當選爲亞軍,當她學成後,曾在倫敦一間公司工作了兩年,一九八一年的華埠小姐選舉,翁美玲被邀請擔任司儀,她的口才及儀表卽受當地華僑的注目。之後她隨即返港,並参加八二年的香港小姐選擧,她曾被喩爲「黑馬」,但礙於身型關係,未能進身三甲之內,但這也成了她加入娛樂圈的踏脚石。最初被派任「婦女新姿」主持,但後期她的演戲潛質被發現後,隨即調往話劇組。她的第一套電視劇爲「十三妹」。

身世之謎

翁美玲是一個健談的女孩子,但對家事則即使是頗熟絡的朋友,也很少提及。還記得她初出道時,每次致電給她,總是由一名中年男士接聽,問及他是她的貴親,她都只說是代父便不再說下去。其實當時已懷疑她的身世特殊。最後,傳出翁美玲實爲孤女,她的母親只爲她的代母,但視她則如己出,所以翁美玲一直也沒懷疑自己的身世,但最近得知眞相,引致情緒低落,跟她有厭世之想也不無關係。翁美玲在香港的至親可說是她的契娘陳女士了。翁美玲三歲便上契給她,而陳女士對翁亦愛錫有加,翁美玲孤身在港初時,幸得寄居於陳女士家中,翁美玲出事後,陳女士本欲辦理翁美玲的認屍手續,但因沒有直屬關係,所以不得要領。後來得到翁母之授權書,才能接納她的認領。陳女士的丈夫爲公務員,家居九龍天光道。

翁美玲的舅父亦非常之愛錫她,在她的童年時代,常常教她繪畫,逐使翁美玲對繪畫培養出興趣,而翁美玲所畫的每一幅畫,都有一定的水準。

其實,在翁美玲身邊有這麼多人愛護她,爲什麼會有輕生之念呢?
