Sometimes, unexpected kindness from a near stranger can mean the world to someone.
Mainland Chinese actress Hu Jing (胡静) did not hesitate to help her fellow actress Cheng Lisha (程莉莎) when she and her husband were facing trouble while in Malaysia. The two at the time were mere acquaintances but it didn’t matter to Hu.
Cheng took the opportunity to share what Hu did and thanked her while they were on the show “Sister Riding the Wind and Waves 2”. According to Cheng, she had accompanied her husband Guo Xiadong (郭晓东) to Penang, Malaysia to film a movie. While there, her husband developed a fever. They didn’t know what to do or where to go as “Penang is a small town“. They also didn’t have any friends in Malaysia and Hu was the only acquaintance they knew in the country.
Cheng took a chance and reached out to Hu. She got her contact from some friends and added her on the WeChat account. However, she was uneasy about the idea as she wasn’t sure if Hu would add her back, let alone help her. To her surprise, Hu went a step further. Hu was not in the country when Cheng reached out to her for help, the actress was in fact filming in Beijing. But when she heard that Cheng needed help, she told Cheng not to worry and promised she would take care of everything. Cheng was very grateful to her and still is!
Hu Jing married Datuk Zhu Zhaoxiang in 2008 and has a son with him. Being a Datin meant she could reach out for help easily despite not being physically in Malaysia. Hu added that Guo was suffering from bone fever at the time. She stated she did not mind helping out her friends, saying “I like my friends to trouble me because it feels good to be needed.” She added that she has also troubled her friends for help in the past. “This is a trivial matter,” Hu reassured.
Netizens were amazed with Hu Jing and very impressed. They praised her “high EQ” and stated she was worthy of the title ‘Datin’. Although Hu married into a wealthy family, she did not give up her acting career. Instead, she chose her roles carefully, picking those that interested her. Hu joined “Sister Riding the Wind and Waves 2” to challenge herself and show off her amazing dance skills.
It’s heartwarming to see actresses caring for one another and a reminder that sometimes, all we need to do is reach out for help. People will reach back.
