In 1977, she was the contestant of the Miss Hong Kong Pageant but did not win the title. She made albums for primarily Crown Records (娛樂唱片) and Cinepoly Records. Some of her songs are heard in Cantonese-language series and films. In 1983, Mak recorded "Rhine River Romance" (萊茵河之戀), lyricized by Cheng Kwok-kong (鄭國江) and composed by Joseph Koo. Hong Kong University professor, Stephen Chu (朱耀偉), called the song a fairy tale feeling. In 1989, she sang "Years of Silence" (歲月無聲), lyricized by Lau Zeuk Fai (劉卓輝) and composed by the Beyond band member Wong Ka Kui, before the rock band Beyond re-recorded it in a rockier style.
