Those in their 50s like me would remember this popular singer.
Who is she?
The 62-year old Hong-Kong-born songtress has career that spans 4 decades, 80 albums to her name and loyal fans all over the year.
2010 marks the 14th year she is cancer-free. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1996.
The cancer was detected in the early stage.
Next steps taken: removed the lump, went for six weeks of radiotherapy.
Food: Frances Yip became very careful with her food, eating only organic produce and very little, if any processed food.
“I am a vegetarian but I don’t eat a lot of red meat. I eat a lot of tofu and vegetables and I very rarely eat ready-made stuff,” she says.
She now lives in Australia for the last 5 years.

You must be wondering how she becomes a vegetarian, giving up all the nice and tasty food.
I guess the motivational force is that she likes to keep on singing on stage. She just enjoys doing so. That is why she will be becoming to perform in Malaysia in the next few months.
