One possible solution:
Mrs. Hudson's hand meets the minimum requirement of 8 points with:
a) 3 chows combining for 2 1-point fans (e.g. 2 Mixed Double Chows; Mixed Double Chow and Pure Double Chow; Pure Double Chow and Short Straight etc.);
b) 1 Melded Kong of a Terminal (i.e. 1 or 9), giving 2 points;
c) hand contains only 2 Suits (i.e. One Voided Suit) and No Honours, giving 2 points;
d) and she self-drew on a unique wait (i.e. Single Wait, Closed Wait, or Edge Wait), giving 2 points.
Additionally, Mrs. Hudson managed to get all 8 bonus tiles, so her hand is worth 16 points in total.
