In 2006, Sit raised some controversy with her video clip for "Tong But Lut" as it hold great resemblance to the video clip of "ourselves" by Japanese superstar Ayumi Hamasaki. Her song "Dear Fiona" is a Cantonese version of the song Tomorrow's Way by Yui.
Sit's official fan club, Club F was established on 11 August 2006 in conjunction with her 25th birthday. Her 4th album "Electric Angel" was released on the same day as well. 200 fans attended the first gathering, which was held in a Chinese restaurant in Wan Chai.
After Electric Angel, Sit went over to Taiwan in order to improve her Mandarin skills. In order to keep her fanbase (Hong Kong artists usually release 1 to 2 albums per year to keep up their popularity), Warner released her first compilation, "F" Best, on 12 June 2007. This album includes 3 new songs with 15 selected songs from her previous albums. The album also includes a DVD containing a short film and some MVs of her songs.
After training in Taiwan in one year, Sit mastered the Mandarin language, and made her debut Mandarin album It's My Day which was released on 18 April 2008. The album is recorded in Taiwan and also in Singapore. It features songs such as I don't need Tiffany, which refers to the jewelry company and a duet with Khalil Fong, Overcoming Memories.
In 2005 Sit went on to film her first Hong Kong TVB series The Academy as a female police trainee. To match the character's circumstances, Fiona cut her hair short. In contrast to her past success, fans responded negatively towards this change in her image, and were wary of her future career decisions. She followed with a cameo performance on On The First Beat. Sit also featured in a weight loss product TV commercial, in which she performed a dance routine. These two events were mocked in the Hong Kong media, and cut into her fanbase.
On 23 February 2008, a 27 year-old male fan named Lin threw a bottle of herbal tea at Sit as she was on stage during a charity event in Mong Kok, resulting in an injury to her forehead. The man was detained by security guards and later arrested. The bottle also caused minor injury to a staff member of the event. Sit, fearing her eye had been injured, reportedly broke into tears before being taken to Kwong Wah Hospital.
