Shirley disclosed she was an animal lover and had been filming program related to animals recently: "I will interview my friends in entertainment industry, share about the memory with their pets and its sickness so as to increase the audiences' understanding. (Did you keep a pet as well?) Nope currently and I used to have around 7 or 8 pets, but it was no longer by my side now."
When mentioned about her 3 years old daughter, Krystal Yeung (楊卓穎), Shirley replied she was hyperactive and getting talkative which increased their interaction. Shirley laughed and said: "She knows I need to work and said to me: 'Mummy, I need to resume work again!', I do not mind bringing her along if any suitable work arrangement. But filming variety show is impossible and I told her that she was too small and should go to school first. (Allow her to film?) Have not try it before and let's see if there is any opportunity later. (Film advertisement together as mother and daughter?) Can consider and I can bring her out so as to increase her horizon."
