The movie Sex and Zen is also the highest grossing Category III movie in the history of Hong Kong box office. Her efforts to avoid fully exposing her breasts in adult movies through clever use of camera angles became known as the "Yip tease". Yip first came to notice by appearing in various television series' in the mid-1980s.

She further disclosed that she had food and beverage businesses set up in Hong Kong and Macau which kept her busy and occupied. When asked whether she would consider making a comeback in the showbiz, Yip rejected the idea flatly by saying that she was very happy with her current carefree lifestyle, and had no desire of going back to the old days of filming long hours and travelling intensively for movies and record publicity.
