千百年來日本人用以護膚護髮及食用的椿花油(茶花籽油)即Tusbaki Oil，因Ling Ling在專欄內大力推介，使之得以廣為人知。是以，一提起椿花油就自然想到Ling Ling，因此為她贏來Queen of Tusbaki Oil的美譽。
Lee Wai Ling, Maria
Lee Wai Ling’s passion for natural beauty and traditional health wisdom was inspired by her mother. She was the editor in chief at the Hong Kong edition of Cosmopolitan from mid-80s to early 90s. In early 90s, she was offered a scholarship to study Japanese in Tokyo and polished her editorial acumen at Ryuko Tsushin (流行通信), the top fashion magazine in Japan, followed by launching the Chinese edition of RyukoTsushin (流行通信) after her return to Hong Kong. In 1998, TVB launched Channel 8 (八頻道), a Putonghua channel, and Lee became the host and research writer for its lifestyle programme 「潮流追風」 till 2001. She began to pen her columns on fashion for Hong Kong Economic Times and Hong Kong Economic Journal in 1994, and her interest turned to natural beauty in 2000. Her prolific features have been turned into more than 23 books of rich resources on natural beauty and traditional health practices.
Lee is also a novelist and her works such as 《我要結婚》(collection of novellas)、《哭泣在巴黎鐵塔下》(collection of novellas)、《那一年的雨季》(collection of novellas) and 《流行一派》(collection of proses) have been published by 明窗出版社.
Lee bas been hailed as the “Queen of tsubaki oil”, thanks to her enthusiastic promotion of the century-old Japanese secrets of health and beauty of tsubaki oil (Camellia seed oil) in her columns.
Now, Lee is a columnist for Hong Kong Economic Times and Headline Daily.
