Vera is a senior civil servant. As a child, she loved singing Cantonese opera and often had fun assuming the male role when singing with her sister Angela in imitation of their idols Yam Kim- Fai and Pak Suet-Sin. After becoming a wife and mother, she put aside her hobby so as to devote to her family and career.
As her children grew up, Vera was encouraged by her sister to pick up singing again. In 2015 she formally became a student of Master Lau Wing-Chuen and learned to sing in the traditional method. In doing so, she has rediscovered her own beautiful female singing voice.
