The slow-loading of the page is because there is music preparing to play. The background song is Fong Fei Fei singing Applause. It is 320 kbps which is the highest mp3 quality.  To stop this music, please go to the foot of this page, and click 'pause' on the small player.  To lower the volume, click and 'drag' the player's speaker icon down the scale. The player is set in high volume as default, which I find too high.
Fong Fei Fei was born Lin Qiu Luan on August 20th, 1953 in  Dasi Township, Taoyuan County, Taiwan. She started her career by acting and hosting a Taiwanese television series back in 1971. Her first single was released the same year, and album deals and more television appearances followed, making her a household name. She was further propelled to superstardom in the late 1970s when she started singing movie theme songs for the adaptations of romance novels by Chiung Yao

She was nicknamed "The Hat Diva" because she always wore different kind of stylish hats while on the stage. Fong was also cast in several movies and TV dramas in the 1970s and 1980s and hosted a number of entertainment shows. In 1980, she married Hong Kong businessman Zhao Hongqi (趙宏琦), who died of lung cancer in 2009 at the age of 70. Fong spent the last ten years of her life in Hong Kong. She recorded 81 albums in all, and continued performing even as her health deteriorated. She cancelled a concert in June 2011 after finding something wrong with her vocal cords. She was diagnosed with lung cancer. Fong apologized to her fans, and said that the doctors had recommended she rest for a year to recuperate.

On January 3, 2012, Fong Fei Fei died at the age of 58, but the news was only reported on February 13, by her attorney per her request to keep her illness and death out of the press until all of her funeral arrangements were settled. She had wanted to keep everything low-key, as well as not interrupt people's Lunar New Year preparations. Her web site said that Fong Fei Fei had insisted on personally signing birthday and New Year cards for fans, even during the last month of her life. She thanked her fans for supporting her throughout her career. "I have lived a happy and wonderful life," she said. "Thank you for being by my side all this time, my brothers and sisters. As for the songs I never got to sing in this life, I will sing them to you in my next life." A very special lady indeed.
