Beloved for her optimistic disposition, Happy Mama and her helpful granddaughter attracted a large following by teaching different old-style recipes for 90-days and sharing bits of the grandmother’s daily life which instilled a deep filling of nostalgia for many.

「阿弟、阿妹啊」是快樂嬤在影片中最熟悉的呼喚,不過卻再也聽不到了!快樂嬤劉張秀晚年喪夫,加上身體需洗腎等,常受病痛之苦,孫女劉瑩惟於是帶著她做料理、出遊分享生活點滴等,樸實不造作的影片風格在YouTube上有20萬人訂閱,「6YingWei快樂姐」臉書粉絲專頁也有27萬追蹤,快樂嬤親切的呼喚與開朗笑顏是不少人的精神糧食。

The widow with 200,000 Youtube followers needed dialysis and was often in pain, so her granddaughter of 270,000 followers, Liu Ying-wei (or ‘6YingWei’), helped her build an online presence and teach about her life. 

近一個月未再上傳做菜影片,因為快樂嬤受疾病影響,積極休養身體準備進行髖關節手術,不料仍被醫生依心臟衰弱原因退貨,令她難過表示「死了算了」。

Because of Happy Mama’s ailing health and in preparation for a hip joint operation, the previously planned cooking video was postponed. However, the doctor unexpectedly canceled the procedure due to her heart’s weakened state, to which she replied, “Forget it, I’m ready to go.”

社頭鄉長劉錦昌今(25)日前往弔唁後表示,快樂嬤是住社頭鄉湳雅村,阿嬤與丈夫感情很好,但丈夫過世後一直悶悶不樂,孫女發現就帶阿嬤來拍影片,教大家古早味料理,才讓她逐漸拾回快樂,這對嬤孫的表現是這個社會最需要的一股力量,也希望快樂姐能早日走出快樂嬤過世的陰霾,繼續當一位快樂女孩。

Shetou township leader, Liu Jin-chang, expressed his condolences yesterday (Aug.25), pointing out that Happy Mama and her husband were a jovial couple, but after her husband died, she became depressed. Mr. Liu then thanked the granddaughter for lifting up Happy Mama’s spirits and hoped she could continue life with the same optimism that her grandmother showed the world.
