Charmaine Sheh praises Kevin Cheng & Annie Lau are a great match 

Charmaine Sheh, Myolie Wu, Bosco Wong, Moses Chan and Tavia Yeung attended a [Next] magazine awards ceremony yesterday. Since Charmaine is currently busy shooting for Mainland drama Legend of the Yuan Empire Founder, she rushed back to HK in order to take part in the awards ceremony. When speaking of rumored boyfriend Kevin Cheng's new rumors with Annie Lau? Charmaine laughed: "Congrats!" Asked if she lost Kevin because she's too busy shooting series? Charmaine admitted: "I really have no time, have to film. Kevin left Hengdian earlier than me, so I don't know where he went to shoot." Charmaine said she and Kevin are friends, and did call him up to ask about his new rumors. She believed Kevin and Annie are both considered a handsome guy and beautiful girl, and are very matching on-screen couple. Does she believe she and Kevin are the most matching? She asked back: "Ask the audience!" 

Myolie Wu was away from HK for several months shooting a new Mainland series. She expressed she misses her HK colleagues, when asked if she's implying she misses boyfriend Bosco Wong? She laughed and did not answer, but she said since Triumph in the Skies II hasn't begun yet, she took the opportunity to accept another Mainland drama. She said she will be back in HK to promote for new TVB series House of Harmony and Vengeance. Asked if she's earning a lot of the Chinese yuan lately? Myolie laughed: "Not that much, but I'm not used to the Mainland weather, so I fell ill. I hope to get better soon." Bosco praised Myolie for having the capability to earn money, and said he too will work hard for money. 

Regarding girlfriend Aimee Chan currently shooting in Mainland for the first time and was forced to take group photos by the colleagues there? Moses believed they just had the mentality of fans. First time shooting out in Mainland, Aimee has been well-taken care of by many people, and is not worried of safety. Moses said: "We chat on the phone every day, she got used to it too. She had so much time, she was able to go walk around everywhere and take pictures too." He hopes to finished shooting his series by April, so he can visit his girlfriend in Hengdian for a surprise.

Bosco Wong confirms Myolie Wu is part of his family 

Yesterday Bosco Wong attended the Mazda CX-5 new car show with Sharon Chan. Bosco has great interest for cars, but when asked if he will buy a few cars for girlfriend Myolie Wu? He did Tai Chi with his hands and shook his head. He said he already has a lot of cars. Sharon praised Bosco on how great he is, and asked when he'll be giving a car to his 'little sister' (referring to herself), Bosco immediately said: "Family gets priority on getting new cars!" Is Myolie considered family? He expressed: "OK la, but not formally." When asked when he'll buy a home for Myolie? Bosco was frightened and immediately started wiping away his sweat: "Later! Buying a home is such a big decision, I'm sweating!" 

Myolie asked him for a new car on that very day? Bosco denied, he said that day he just heard Myolie praised how beautiful the car is, so she went to get one herself. He also praised Myolie as a good girlfriend because she never been fully fiancially reliant on him. Bosco stressed he needs to take it a step at a time when giving gifts. Now is the next step to give his girlfriend a child? He embarrassingly avoided the question, and expressed he will first ask Myolie what she wants and said he personally has no plans for marriage yet. Does Myolie want him to create some surprise on their wedding day? Bosco laughed: "Perhaps she'll give me a book on cars, with a marriage certificate hidden inside!" 

Sharon said with a smile that she also hopes her boyfriend can give her a car too. Bosco quickly gave her advice, telling her to ask her boyfriend and she'll get one. When speaking of Shirley Yeung just returning to HK with her newborn, as her good friend, Sharon expressed she already asked to visit her. Bosco also hopes that we all give some support to Shirley, this single mother that is raising her child alone.

Liza Wang & Gigi Wong collaborates again in new series after 36 years

Liza Wang, Gigi Wong, Mandy Wong, Him Law and Candy Chang were at the costume fitting for TVB new series A Chip off the Old Block II (巴不得媽媽…). It has been 36 years since Liza and Gigi last collaborated in The Legend of the Book and the Sword in 1976. Gigi denied that the two are on bad terms, but expressed they are only on bad terms in the series. Gigi is also not worried about the arise of gossips when working with Liza: "We didn't have any gossips before, very peaceful. Gossips are made up by others." She stressed she has never been jealous of Liza nor has she competed with her on anything. Gigi has always took her salary and put in her greatest effort into the work, just as long as she has a salary, she will be happy. Also, this time it's a rare opportunity to work with Liza again. 

Liza reveals she and Gigi will have a lot of scenes opposite of each other and will be mutually picking on each other. Liza expressed she didn't keep in touch with Gigi in private because Gigi started developing in Taiwan and then moved to Canada. When asked about Shirley Yeung, whom she had once worked with, is now a single mother and back in HK? Liza said: "I don't know, I came back to TVB to do my costume fitting, didn't read the papers nor have I kept in touch with her. So I wouldn't know, just ask about the new series!"


Linda Chung's 3 hour shower, earn enough to buy a new home

Linda Chung's 3 hour shower, earn enough to buy a new home

Linda Chung is known as a frugal and hardworking artist. Lately, since she has finally paid off all her 'series debt' (break from filming), she quickly goes out to earn some extra income. Within these two months, she had four endorsements and has pocketed over HK$1 million. The other day, under the some 10 degree C temperatures, Linda was shooting a shower gel commercial for 6 figures. She just had a thin and short white dress on for the shoot and had to run away in the open field with a little girl. She conveyed a natural and healthy message. 

Since it was Linda's first time meeting the little girl, she brought her candy and toys. Although Linda had to withstand the cold and please the little girl, she did not once ask for a break. However, the company arranged a personal makeup car for her to use. Then Linda was shooting a showering scene, where she showed off her shoulders and legs for 3 hours! 

Linda claimed she's a fan of this brand, and this is the sexiest commercial that she has done since she debuted. Earlier, she especially looked after her body to display the most beautiful skin for the shoot. She said: "Recently, I've been doing a lot of aerobics. I went for several classes in the last two months and now I'm better spirited and feel healthier. I pay particular attention to showering, and the shower gel must let out a fresh scent. I rehearse my lines and sing in the shower!" 

As she has been rapidly earning extra income and becoming a little queen of endorsements, Linda didn't deny: "I will shoot any commercial! Most important is to earn money! Although I already have a home, I hope to buy another one this year! (Buy a 'Gu Por' Home?) Haha! Of course a 'brick' is a stronger safeguard. I hope to earn enough to buy another home by the end of this year!"


Moses Chan: Give a Status to Aimee Chan within 2 Years

Moses Chan: Give a Status to Aimee Chan within 2 Years 

Within Aimee Chan's love dictionary, Moses Chan is defined as her exclusive 'best deal' (seun poon). Likewise, in Moses' dictionary, he equally hopes to be with Aimee forever. Moses claims he's a traditional man, and understands how wonderful it is when fate comes. He promises to give Aimee a status within 2 years. 

(Moses speaks ...) 

I won't compare the differences between my romances from the past and present. After all, a relationship must not be distinguished from right or wrong just by a few words. I will just look into the future and move forward. Whatever happened in the past, whether if its my career or love life, I really believe to just let it be since it's the past. However, I am honestly happier than before. I am very happy to be with Aimee. People say I'm the 'best deal', but in reality you all are just thinking too highly of me. I'm just like any other traditional man. I believe a man should be responsible for everything he does and should really take good care of his other half, giving his girlfriend someone to rely on and sense of security. These qualities are very important. I have my weaknesses too and I am still learning on how to be a good boyfriend because every individual will have a time where they make mistakes. It's just a matter of how much tolerance we have for each other. 

Two Minds Interlinked 

In my heart, Aimee is a very sweet girl. My first impression on her was very good, and also we have common interests. For example, I enjoy studying coffee and Aimee does too. Coffee is often a topic we talk about. Most important is our thoughts are the same, sometimes we don't have to explain and it seems like we already understand what the other is thinking. It's been less than a year since we started dating, but many people are even more rushed than we are, telling us to get marry soon. Aimee and I do indeed have consensus, we hope to take it slow with no pressure, and allow our relationship to get even better first. I know status is very important to a woman, but I will add oil! Actually I will give her status because the coffee shop that I opened with a friend in Malaysia closed, and I currently have plans to open another one in HK within 2 years. If I really can open a coffee shop in HK, I hope to make her the female boss and let her handle all the finances. This is currently my promise to her. As for myself, of course I will personally put more research into the coffee. Hopefully my dream comes true! 

Relationship is 'brewing' 

Many people know I like to drink coffee, and before when I traveled to different parts of the world to shoot the second season of my coffee program Coffee Confidential, I actually started to love the coffee that I brew even more. I learned a lot of the manufacturing processes. Whether a cup of coffee is good or bad, it is all made by me, even if it doesn't taste good, I suffer it myself. If I had to describe my relationship with Aimee through this process, the first image that comes to mind is "brewing", haha! Actually, I won't use coffee to describe her, I will never keep coffee that I brewed for more than two weeks because it will spoil, but my love will not change! 

Refuses being an on-screen couple 

There is another thing we both agreed that we don't want to do, that is to shoot a series as a couple. I talked to her about this, we both don't really want to see this happen. Honestly speaking, in the eyes of viewers, I don't think they want to see a real life couple be in a series. If we had to get intimate on screen, I would refuse because I want to keep work and personal life separate. If we mix work and personal life together, it's going to be hard to focus. I would have no confidence in my performance. 

(Interview ends...)

As Moses' girlfriend, how does Aimee think of her 'showbiz's best deal' boyfriend? Aimee attended an event earlier and sweetly smiled: "He's a gentleman and very attentive. I feel very comfortable being with him!" 

Since Aimee's parents both live in Canada, they have not had the chance to interview this future son-in-law, but a month ago, Aimee's brother came to Hong Kong and met with Moses. When asked of her brother's impression on his future brother-in-law? Aimee laughed: "My brother had dinner with Moses and toured HK. However, I have no details of his impression!" When speaking of Moses wanting to open a coffee shop in HK and make her his female boss, Aimee just smiled sweetly and did not comment.

Linda Chung & Steven Ma praise Shirley Yeung's courage as a single mother 

Yesterday Linda Chung, Steven Ma, Evergreen Mak, Cilla Kung, Ha Yu and producer Miu Siu Ching appeared at the Tseung Kwan O school to promote for new series Daddy Good Deeds. As Shirley Yeung's good friend, Linda expressed she has not seen Shirley for several months, but they have kept in touch on Whatsapp. Yesterday Shirley came back to HK, has Linda seen her yet? Linda said: "Find an opportunity to. As a single mother, it is really mighty to be able to raise a child on your own. I will wish them good health and live happily!" Steven expressed he hasn't had many collaborations with Shirley, but as an outsider, one woman having to raise a child herself requires a lot of courage, she is very brave. 

Earlier it was rumored Mona Fong personally asked Steven to stay with TVB. Today, Mona has already resigned from her position, so does this mean it will be difficult for Steven to serve for TVB again? Steven said: "I already said TVB has discussed with me. Mona Fong asking me to stay is a rumor, I never personally heard her say that she wants me to stay. She gave me a very good impression, she's a good person. Currently there are many different TV stations that have approached me. In Hong Kong, as long as its reasonable and fair, my first choice is 'maternal home' TVB." Steven knows Mona switched from her Vice-Chairman position to Managing Director. It should be a good thing, and won't be too difficult for her. The cast also bid farewell to producer Miu Siu Ching, who is leaving TVB at the end of this month.

Timmy Hung and Janet Chow gets married! 

Timmy Hung and 2006 Miss Hong Kong first runner-up Janet Chow's tied the knot today! Timmy had '10 Brothers' serve as his groomsmen, while the bride Janet had 28 bridesmaids. Timmy's groomsmen included Chin Kar Lok, Michael Tong, Frankie Lam, and Carlos Ng. Janet's bridesmaids included Angela tong, Toby Leung, Elaine Yiu, Margaret Chung, Vivien Yeo and many many more. 

The day before, Janet had her bridal shower party and her bridesmaids all went on stage to share their experiences they had with Janet and how they felt about her. The bride got very emotional and cried the whole time. Janet said: "I slowly established this group of friends in the 6 years since I've been in HK. We talk about everything and are about loyalty. We take care of each other, so I really want to share my happiness with them." Timmy's sister was also one of the bridesmaid, Janet laughed: "They said Timmy is lucky to marry me. Even his sister said the same thing. I really don't feel what's so great about me, but I really thank them." 

The couple also hosted a star-studded wedding reception at W Hotel. The bride left alone early in the morning to pickup her friends and took them to the hotel. Timmy waited for his bride at the hotel, and then the couple entered together. 

As the father-in-law, Sammo Hung arrived at the hotel at 12pm, and personally gave out red envelopes later in the afternoon. He laughed that Timmy knows what to do and does not need to be taught, so he doesn't have to worry. Asked if the newly weds are planning to have Dragon babies? Sammo said its possible. Later, Sammo's wife joined them and happily allowed the media to snap a few pictures. 

Wong Jing, Jacky Cheung, Jackie Chan and EEG CEO Albert Yeung were the earliest guests that arrived. Jacky expressed he gave money gift to the newly weds because he has to go up to Shanghai for a performance, so he can only stay for 15 minutes. When Jacky learned Kelly gave birth, he congratulated her.

TOGETHER, a new film with many young idols, yesterday began production in a restaurant in Deep Water Bay. Three leads Ko Chen-Tung, Bosco Wong Chung Chak and Angelababy dressed up for the occasion. Ko Chen-Tung praised Baby as the type that he liked and did not mind that she was older than him. Unfortunately Baby said that he was younger than her and she would only treat him like a little brother.

Angelababy yesterday wore a coat and said that she did not expect Hong Kong to be so cold in March. Baby said, "I haven't made a movie in Hong Kong for years, the last time was SHORT OF LOVE (NGAI JAI DOR CHING) several years ago. This time we will shoot in Hong Kong for a month!" Speaking of being between Ko Chen-Tung and Wong Chung Chak, Baby said that she will have scenes with both. In the film Ko Chen-Tung is her boyfriend and Bosco her boss. She only knew that she will not have too many intimate scenes. Did she notify her boyfriend? Baby generously said, I constantly work with handsome guys! Almost every movie's co-star is handsome, but Ko Chen-Tung is younger than me. I will only treat him like a little brother!" In addition, Baby was prepared to answer last week's magazine report that she and boyfriend Huang Xiaoming went for a pre wedding check up and insisted that she only went for a flu shot. Xiaoming also had the flu. She said, "I had the flu last year so I went for the shot, Xiaoming happened to be in Hong Kong. We went together because he had the flu too! He just happened to be in Hong Kong and didn't feel well so I took him for a shot. No one should make too much of this, the magazine is exaggerating too much!" As for a wedding date, Baby reiterated that now she is still focused on her work first.

Coming to Hong Kong for the first time after rising to fame, Ko Chen-Tung said that he will stay in Hong Kong for ten days for the production. He said, "This is day one at work, then after working in Taiwan I will rush back for the movie!" As for not winning the Asian Film award Best Newcomer, he replied, "I won't be disappointed, I will congratulate the winner Ni Ni. Her performance is great! Every award show's jury is different, the nomination alone is already a recognition!" He and Angelababy will have emotional scenes but no intimate scene in the film, not even kissing or hugging. Their love in the film will be pure. Was he afraid of rumors? He said, "I am not! Why do you always ask this question? (She already has a boyfriend Huang Xiaoming?) I don't know, but I like her this type too." Speaking of Baby being older than him, Ko Chen-Tung said, "I am only a little younger than her, it doesn't matter!" He again stressed that he did not have a girlfriend.

Kenneth Ma passes the 'Frontline Siu Sang' test; THC to shoot a sequel 

TVB's Frontline Siu Sangs are all busy working and earning money in Mainland. The second line artists now have the opportunity to catch up and 'pass the test'. Kenneth Ma takes the lead as he successfully passed the test with his doctor role 'Cheung Yat Kin' in the recent TVB series The Hippocratic Crush. Last Friday, the series finale averaged at 37 points and peaked at 39 points, approximately 2.47 million viewers watched the ending. Aside from the great success and becoming the top rated 2012 TVB series so far, TVB quickly announces that there will be a sequel with the original cast. 

'The Hippocratic Crush' to shoot a sequel

Yesterday at the FILMART 2012 (TVB 2012隆重鉅獻) press conference, TVB announces last week's ratings. The Hippocratic Crush finale peaked at 39 points and the entire 25 episode series averaged at 31 points (~1.9 million viewers). Becoming this year's top rated series so far, TVB Chairman Norman Leung will be hosting a celebration banquet next Wednesday at TVB City for the cast and crew. As for Kenneth, who had just passed the test and takes a seat as the one of the new Frontline TVB Siu Sang, he is very pleased to hear that his series is the top rated so far. As for the sequel with the original cast, although he does not know when it will start or how his character continues to develop, but the background setting will still remain in the hospital. 

Hopes to continue as a couple with Tavia Yeung

Kenneth was asked if he had confidence to be a 'housewife killer' like Lawrence Ng's Dr. Paul Ching Chi Mei in Healing Hands or even shoot a few more seasons? He said: "I am Cheung Yat Kin, different from Dr. Paul Ching. I hope my girlfriend will still be Yue Jai (Tavia). If we continue to go for another 25 episodes as a couple, I believe it will be a good watch, no need to be like Dr. Paul's girlfriends, all of them dies." As for Kenneth's co-star Tavia, she expressed her hopes to be like the Healing Hands francise, keep it coming. 

Yat Kin Tau's marriage proposal hits 200,000 clicks 
Spoiler
 

Episode 24 of The Hippocratic Crush, where Yat Kin (Kenneth) pulls Yue Jai (Tavia) up on stage during their friends' wedding, and made a romantic and passionate proposal to Yue Jai has gotten over 200,000 views on Youtube.

Yat Kin expressed to Yue Jai that the marriage vows must be put in practice and not just said. He said: "When she is young, beautiful and healthy, of course there is love, but when she ages, grows old and gets wrinkles, getting sicker and sicker, or even have to watch her die, does that mean there is no longer love? Since we won't give up on each other in the future, then it should be the same now. If we don't love because our other half is sick, then that is not true love. Doctors cannot guarantee to live a long life, so it isn't written on the marriage vow that we should be together until death, but must promise no matter if healthy or ill, still must be together..."

Some Netizens praised Kenneth's sincere and natural acting, even after re-watching several times, the scene is still very touching and still makes them tear up.


TV King Kevin Cheng was also present at the press conference, but expressed he does not know whether Ghetto Justice 2 will be this year's TVB Anniversary Series. Asked if he has confidence to becoming the next TV King again? He laughed and said this year Kenneth Ma's momentum is extremely good. Although it's only March, he already feels that Kenneth has a strong chance to become TV King this year. Does he believe he can be like Wayne Lai, become TV King for two consecutive years? Kevin said: "Public opinion always comes first for me. If its not for the public opinions, then it will eventually harm you." 

Single Kevin: Won't Avoid Women

Kevin is currently busy shooting for Mainland drama Red Dust (滾滾紅塵), so he will only have time to come back to HK in July. Asked if he's getting familiar with Mainland women? He smiled and said he believes the only difference between Mainland and HK women is one speaks Mandarin and the other speaks Cantonese. Even if its body figure, height or body size, there are all kinds. While working in Mainland, he will be careful. Will he be like Joe Ma and avoid women? He said: "Well no because Joe's already married, I'm not married. For some things that I should do, I will do it. There will be formal social interactions no matter what. If there is stable development, I will let you all know."

Kate Tsui likes ABCs, gives a lemon to Shanghai Boy 

Artists Kate Tsui, Sharon Chan, Bosco Wong, Ron Ng, famous model Lynn Hung and Wyman Wong attended the PINK Century Sakura Fashion Show in Shenzhen. Kate appeared in a low-cut dress, but denied she stole Sharon's limelight. As for Kate's ex-rumored boyfriend Ron Ng, this time he's partnered up with Sharon for the catwalk. Asked if her outfit would attract the Mainland wealthy men? She laughed and denied, and took initiative in bringing up the 'Shanghai Boy' Kwok Wing Hung's love confession for her, she said: "The recent news is so strange. I really don't know this 'Shanghai Boy' nor have I ever seen him. (What if he's strongly pursuing you?) I like Westerners! (Why?) After all, I like guys who are ABC. (If he meets you through a friend?) It's hard to answer IF questions. Thank him for his admiration." Kate didn't want any relation with the Shanghai Boy, but she is grateful of Cutie Mui's comments, that there are many other 'guys' from different regions liking her.
