I'm shocked by this news. Anita Mui was my favorite actress in Hong Kong films. She was beautiful and extremely talented. She came to fame as a singer and became one of Asia's biggest stars. As an actress, not only was she tremendous in her action and martial arts scenes, but she was a gifted comedic actress. Her work Jackie Chan and Ti Lung in Drunken Master 2 was first class.

Most americans known her as the lady in Rumble in the Bronx that buys Jacky's uncles Market at the beginning of the movie, and she has to deal with the gang trashing it every 15 mins, and then tries to nick some diamonds, as payment to all the damage to her market.
In the Maritimes it's definitely called swamp water. It was also ordered fairly frequently when I lived there up until 1995. By frequently I mean at least once per shift. I have never heard it ordered in Quebec, or Ontario sadly.
