* ExecutiveMeddling: The strip was cancelled after Feign trod on the sensibilities of the PRC's leadership too much. The owners of the newspapers it ran in had extensive interests in the mainland, and apparently had been pressured.
** Then the strip {{Channel Hop}}ped to The Independent, Hong Kong Standard (called Hong Kong [[IProduct iMail]] at the time) and finally to their official website.

The title character is a HongKong woman married to an American expatriate. The comic focuses on Lily's daily family and professional life, among her live-at-home parents, her ne'er-do-well brother, her henpecked husband and her ethnically mixed baby daughter. The name of the comic is a parodic ShoutOut to the classic movie ''The World of Suzie Wong''.
