Hong Kong singer Sammi Cheng receives a cake topped with figures of her pets on her 48th birthday

It looks like August is the birthday month of several Hong Kong celebrities.

Two singers turned 48 this week, Leo Ku on Tuesday (Aug 18), and Cantopop diva Sammi Cheng, a day later on Wednesday.

To mark the occasion, Cheng, who is married to fellow singer Andy Hui, posted on social media a composite image of four cakes she received for her birthday.

One of the cakes was decorated with the figures of her pet dog Lucky and cat Mike. It was also topped with three packets of potato chips and cheese sticks, her favourite titbits.

Famous for songs such as Beautiful Life and Worth It, Cheng thanked her friends for their love and blessings by sharing a photo of her with Lucy and Mike, and another one surrounded by bouquets of flowers.

She wrote in Chinese: “I did not plan any celebrations today. Just like this, I have entered the 48th year of my life, as we ‘grew this way’,” referring to the name of the single she released in 2019.

She added that while the cakes were full of calories, she would “eat harder” as birthdays come around but once a year.

満滿好朋友們的愛, 吃下高高的卡路里。 一年一次. Eat harder!!! #友誼萬歲 😁😁😁

The fitness buff updated her post later in the day, writing: “Back to normal tomorrow. Say no to junk food (and snacks). Train harder at 48.”

Her views echoed those of veteran singer Alan Tam, who was concerned about gaining weight earlier this week after he received his first cake for his 70th birthday on Sunday. He went jogging on Wednesday.
