Barbara Yung passed away 27 years ago, but her Hollander ex-boyfriend (Rob) had her on his mind ever since and has never forgotten her. On the 25th anniversary of her death, Rob spent 3 years creating and designing a website in memory of Barbara (www.barbarayung.nl). The site was completed and launched on April 2012. The site consists of nearly 100 personal photos of the young couple back when they were still dating in England.
Back then, the 23 year old Barbara left England and returned to Hong Kong during the Easter holiday because her mother wanted her to break up with medical student Rob. That year, Barbara participated in the 1982 Miss Hong Kong contest and entered the industry. Not long after, her role as Yung Yung in the 1983 version The Legend of the Condor Heroes brought her to fame. She then started dating actor Kent Tong. The reason for Barbara's death had always been controversial. At the time, fingers were all pointed towards her boyfriend Kent Tong. Back then, while the two were on a cold war, Kent was spotted with Sandra Ng playing at the beach and rumors started between them. Troubled by the relationship, Barbara started up the gas and committed suicide in 1985.
Rob had a complete set of information about him and Barbara and already have over 270,000 visitors. Aside from their photos, there is also a timeline of stories between of him and Barbara. Those stories include how they met, how they spent their time together and how they lived.
In 1976, Rob met Barbara at the Cambridge College of Art and Technology (CCAT) and saw her sitting alone at the canteen. He was attracted to her and took the initiative to get to know her. Thereafter they became a couple. Ron exposed a secret, one year because her period didn't come, they thought she was pregnant and feared her mother would find out, so they never went to see the doctor. However, she stated clearly if she was pregnant, she would definitely want the child. In the end, it was just a false alarm, which disappointed Barbara. Finally, Rob noted he has already told the story he wanted to tell, although there are still a lot of personal memories he had with Barbara, he will not be sharing any more on the website.
Today, Rob is already married with two daughters. He reveals his 15 year old eldest daughter thought the website and Youtube videos her father made had a bitter feeling. Also, his two daughters, both thought it was very annoying that their father kept hogging the computer to make this site.
