In 2002, at age 15, Ng was one of the nine members and also youngest of the girl band Cookies, signed under record giant Gold Label of EMI Hong Kong. That same year, she became the youngest recipient to have ever earned a CRHK music award when Cookies were awarded "Best Group Newcomer - Bronze Award"; she was 16 at the time and currently still holds this record. Her male counterpart of this record is Nicholas Tse, who was 17 when he received "Best Male Newcomer - Silver Award" in 1999.
In 2003, Cookies were downsized from the original nine members to only four members. Ng was one of the four members who successfully remained with the group, along with Stephy Tang, Theresa Fu, and Miki Yeung.
In 2004, she joined another rock band - Ping Pung and released the album "Love & Hate". During this time, she continued to retain her membership in Cookies.
In 2006, Ng released her solo debut album "With A Boy like You". Her song 「愛你變成恨你」won her her first Commercial Radio Hong Kong Top Ten Gold Songs award.

In 2007, her second solo album, "In Control", earned her the "Media Award - Album" from the Four Station Joint Music Awards, which presents its awards based on charting results from all four of the music stations in Hong Kong. Ng was the second female singer to have ever received this award, with Miriam Yeung being the first in 2004. She is currently the youngest female recipient of this award, as she was only 21 at the time; her male counterpart is, again, Nicholas Tse, who received the same award in 1999 for his album "Believe", when he was 19.
In January 2008, Ng held three shows for her first concert "Kary Lady K Live 08". On 30 May 2008, she also appeared as the special guest for Leo Ku's North American The Magic Moments Concert in Toronto, Canada in front of a crowd of 10,000 people.
In April 2008, Ng had won the award for "Best Original Film Song" for「逼得太緊」at the 27th Hong Kong Film Awards, with the track being the theme song of the film, Love Is Not All Around. The film had been nominated in only two categories, with the other being Linda Chung nominated for Best New Performer; "Best Original Film Song" was the only award the film took home that night. 「逼得太緊」proved to be her most successful song at music awards shows, as it had won a Top Ten Songs of the Year award from each of the four radio stations in Hong Kong.
In July 2008, her third album "Lady K: Transformation" was released. Ng began experimenting with various styles of pop while keeping her trademark rock sound, as there are notable synthpop, R&B, contemporary R&B and dance-pop undertones on several tracks of the album. In December, her first Best Selection album "Kary 18 CUTS" was released, along with three new songs.
