[CHI] Josephine Siao Fong Fong 蕭芳芳
« on: May 09, 2010, 06:27:12 AM »
Happy Mother's day. My Mom's favorite actress/singer back in the 60s, Josephine Siao Fong Fong 蕭芳芳



As a child star, Josephine Siao 萧芳芳 sang the memorable tear- jerking 妈妈好 Mama Hao in her movie “Nobody’s Child” (1960) which left an indelible impression on an audience of Chinese Cinema and music lovers in the Far East and the world at large. Much like “Hush, little baby”, the song  has become a standard for Chinese lullaby. Many singers have since recorded it in different Asian languages and have had revived it for each generation of new mothers and children at homes, in schools and orphanages around the world.

Josephine Siao’s acting career spanned five decades. She has been a spirited campaigner against child abuse, and founded the End Child Sexual Abuse Foundation (ECSAF). She was made a member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE) in 1996.

She was one of the  Seven Princesses of of the Cantonese teen movie royalty of the 60′s:  Fung So Po, Sum Ziwa, Connie Chan Po Chu, Josephine Siao Fong-Fong,  Nancy Sit Kar Yin, Wong Oi Ming and Petrina Fung Bo Bo.

You may have seen her in "Fong Sai Yuk" back in the day.


Moms just loved her singing and dancing, plus the humantarian side. Went back to school and got a degree, really respected that.



妈妈好                                               Mama Hao (Chinese pinyin)

世上只有妈妈好                                Shi shang zhi you ma ma hao
有妈的孩子像块宝                              You ma de hai zi xiang ge bao
投进妈妈的怀抱                                   Tou jin ma ma de huai bao
幸福享不了                                           Xing fu xiang bu liao
没有妈妈最苦恼                                   Mei you ma ma zui ku nao
没妈的孩子像根草                              Mei ma de hai zi xiang ke cao
离开妈妈的怀抱                                    Li kai ma ma de huai bao
幸福哪里找                                            Xing fu na li zhao?
世上只有妈妈好                                   Shi shang zhi you ma ma hao
有妈的孩子不知道                              You ma de hai zi bu zhi dao
要是他知道 梦里也会笑                   Yao shi ta zhi dao, meng li ye hui xiao

(English translation)
Mom is the best in all the world
A child with a mom is so precious
In a mom’s bosom
Is everlasting happiness
Without mom is most sorrowful
A child without a mom is like a weed
Without a mom’s bosom
Where is happiness?
Mom is the best in all the world
A child with a mom is oblivious
And if a child only knew
E’en smiles while asleep

The thing that my Mom idolizes about Josephine Siao is that not only is she a veteran actress but she does charity work, as she is the founder of the End Child Sexual Abuse Foundation:




one of her ground breaking movies. 40 Year Old Woman 《女人四十》won her actress of the year! where most are past their prime or getting plastic surgery.


WATCH HER GET DOWN!

Josephine Siao confirmed that Benny Chan has made a contribution to the End Child Sex Abuse Foundation. Out of respect, she said she would not reveal the amount.

I've started to develop a major Fong Fong obsession over the past couple of years (hey, she's just about age-appropriate for me XD)  --  and what that got me hooked on her was this utterly awesome clip...
