Abby Choi Realtionship with Alex Kwong
Cai Tianfeng was born into a wealthy family in China, and her parents were successful businessmen. Growing up, she enjoyed a luxurious lifestyle. At 18 years old, she married Alex Kwong and gave birth to two children, now 10 and 8. Seeking comfort and privacy, she purchased a mansion in Kadoorie Hill and used Kwong’s father’s name to avoid paying high stamp duty.
However, the verbal promise made by Kwong’s father to return her contribution after selling the property in the future was not kept. Eventually, Cai and Alex divorced, but her ex-husband’s family continued to reside on the same property. Alex’s brother worked as a driver and frequently visited the family and children at the mansion.
