As an actress, Yeung has appeared in over 30 films with a total box office of around US$50 million worldwide, and had voice roles in three Korean and Thai movies. She won the Most Popular Artiste Award at Italy's Udine Far East Film Festival in 2002.
In 2011, Yeung won her first Best Actress award for Perfect Wedding at the 17th Hong Kong Film Critics Society Award. In 2013 she won another Best Actress award for Love in the Buff at the 32nd Hong Kong Film Awards.
Yeung is set to appear in TVB series Wonder Women, slated to air in 2018. It will be her first small screen appearance in 8 years.
Yeung is also involved in literature and drawing. She published “Miriam experience of school entry” in 1998, which encompasses short passages about her reflections on life, travel journals, and sharing with friends. In 1997, she made her first attempt to write her own lyrics to a song named “The Writing is on the Wall” ("字跡").
In 2007, Yeung began dating ex-VRF member Real Ting Chi-ko. The couple married on 11 August 2009 in Las Vegas. After returning to Hong Kong, the couple held two wedding banquets in the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Wan Chai on 20 December 2010 and in L'hotel Island South in Aberdeen on 24 December 2010, inviting over 500 guests. She gave birth to their first child, a son named Torres "RMB" Ting, on 5 June 2012.
In early 2013, Yeung was admitted to hospital for emergency surgery after an asthma attack.
