Ron Ng & Tavia Yeung celebrates birthday together with over 100 fans

Ron Ng and Tavia Yeung celebrated their 33rd birthday together at a hotel with over 100 fans yesterday. They had a 20 table birthday banquet. To boost the atmosphere, Ron pointed to his cheek signaling Tavia to give him a birthday kiss. However, when speaking of people not accepting ex-girlfriend Viann and her new boyfriend Chen Li? Ron refused to respond: "I"m not commenting on other people! (Feel bad for her?) No. (Call and comfort her?) Not responding." 

Ron said he will not respond to any questions relating to Viann anymore and will not comment on whether he will draw a line with her. He stressed he is currently just focused on work and won't think too much about relationships. Ron reveals on the day of his birthday, September 2nd, he will have to spend it through work. Asked if he'll feel lonely on his birthday? Ron calmly said: "It's about the same every year." He also said he hasn't played with Weibo in a long time: "I got a new phone and stopped going on Weibo." He also said he changed all of his personal passwords. 

Tavia appeared very excited at the birthday party. When asked how rumored boyfriend Him Law will celebrate with her? She said: "I'm going to celebrate with my mom first. From what I know, Him has to shoot the pilot series [TITS2], he's very busy. (Do you want to get a ring from him?) I can't just accept that, but Ron gave me a ring before. (But you just said you can't just accept rings?) I think of Ron as a girl. (Tell Him he doesn't have to give you a ring?) When it's a suitable time." He's not suitable yet? Tavia immediately changed the subject: "Not sure if it's a good day today?" Also, asked if she'll comfort Ron? She said he's looking good and he gained weight too, no need to comfort him.

*Note: Tavia's birthday is on August 30th. Ron is on September 2nd.

Niki Chow's 33rd birthday, still an 18 year old inside 

Yesterday Niki Chow, Mandy Wong and Vincent Wong started their first day of filming for TVB new series A Good Heart Goes Haywire. Tomorrow is Niki's 33rd birthday (August 30th), so Mandy and Vincent prepared a birthday cake to celebrate with her. The child star (Lam Wing Yu), who played the young Niki in Bottled Passion, brought a birthday gift for her as well. 

Niki reveals her birthday is coincidentally on the same day as the Chinese Ghost Festival (July 14th, Lunar Calendar). She decided to celebrate with her family early and comforted herself: "Nothing is taboo for young people. Can't do anything about coincidences. As I get older, I don't want any big celebrations, but I still maintain a mental age of 18 years old! (Do you have to work on your birthday?) Yes! I didn't take a day off or anything, it would be best if the crew automatically gives me the day off. Actually the majority of my time is shooting with Bosco Wong, wait until he comes back to HK first, not sure when that is though. (Any pursuers that asked you out?) Nope, just friends and family taking up all my time. Also, I have a lot of jobs and I got a pimple today on my forehead as a gift!" 

The single Niki reveals its not her first birthday without a boyfriend, so she's used to it. When speaking of her birthday wish, Niki smiled: "Don't ask me when I'm going to start dating, so stressful! But, if I'm really am dating and the relationship is stable, I would admit it. (Any one-night stands during your trip to Europe?) No! They are all people I know." Asked if she conveniently brought a wedding gift for her sister Kathy Chow, who is getting married next month? Niki expressed she didn't and avoided to respond to questions related to her sister's marriage. "I didn't schedule anything, just let her marry peacefully and happily! If she wants to say it, then she'll say it. I'm following orders, I cannot answer questions on her behalf."

Anne Heung to make a comeback in TV series 

Anne Heung left showbiz four years ago to work for the company owned by Loretta Chu's husband in Shanghai. There is news that Anne resigned from her position in the company. [Apple Daily] contacted Anne in Shanghai yesterday and chatted about her next steps. 

Anne said she learned a lot in the last several years, and really want to thank her two bosses. However, she really hopes to have her own career, therefore she and a friend from HK are planning to start a company, specializing in helping Mainland clients plan their weddings overseas. She will invest 6 figures into this company. She also said she signed with a new management and will make a comeback in TV series. Her boss, Loretta Chu, greatly supports her decision. 

In fact, Anne's two TVB series The Legend of Lady Yang and Love is Beautiful were quite a hit in Mainland, and in the last two years many people have been asking her to shoot TV series or stage plays. Since acting is still one of her interests, she decided to work simultaneously on her business and go back into acting. She said her manager is discussing her future jobs in showbiz; it is estimated that she'll make her comeback at the end of the year, but she's focusing in Mainland. When asked if she'll come back and shoot TV series in Hong Kong? Anne said she enjoyed working with Marianne Chan, Gigi Lai, Wayne Lai and everyone else back then, and really does hope to have the opportunity to work with them again.

Joe Ma: Regret Didn't Get A Single TVB Award in 18 Years

Joe Ma: Regret Didn't Get A Single TVB Award in 18 Years 

Prior to Joe Ma's entry into showbiz, he was a police officer and has been in G4 (VIP Protection Unit) before. He protected several political figures including former governor, Chinese high official, and even Prince Charles and Princess Diana. This year is Queen Elizabeth's 60th anniversary on the throne and since Hong Kong used to be under British rule, the people of HK have a special feeling for royal family of England. Joe feels honored to have protected the Prince and Princess before! Joe had been with TVB for 18 years and gain recognition from Triumph in the Skies. He said it was all based on luck, even if it he's promoted to a Siu Sang, he still got no awards! 

JOE: I was a police officer before I entered showbiz. At the time, I wanted to help my family out and thought police was a stabled job. Also, I was very passionate back then and wanted to contribute to society. After spending two years at the police training school, I graduated and became an uniform officer. I remember my first time on beat with a colleague and wrote the ticket wrong. That time, I thought being in the police was like what you see in those cop and robber movies, but I didn't encounter any big cases, it was quite peaceful. 

The most frightening time was when I was chasing after a thief. Actually I'm considered athletic, but when you have to run in an uniform and carry a police duty belt, it is a different story. I really think the police uniform is set up all wrong, and we had to run in leather shoes while holding onto our cap too. The entire uniform is like over 10 pounds, it's basically impossible to catch the thief, so stupid! A year later, I switched to being an officer responsible for handling disturbances and demonstrations, but then after another year, I switched to being a police without the uniform. I still had to carry a gun, but never used it. People say it's a good thing. I used handcuffs before to detain the criminal though, but then I didn't feel it was challenging enough, so I applied into G4. At the time I was only 20 years old. 

Protected Prince Charles and Princess Diana 

G4 is primarily responsible for protecting political figures. I've protected Prince Charles and Princess Diana before, as well as former Singapore prime minister (Lee Kuan Yew), former Chinese high official and the former governor. I really think I'm lucky, since I could be on the same elevator as the royal family. Prince Charles is a gentleman, who gave me a strong feeling of nobility. Princess Diana is very nice and friendly. One time she was shopping in Central and asked me to carry her bags, but I said I cannot do that. She was very understanding and carried her own bags. 

After 3 or 4 years in G4, I changed jobs and became a model. I was in the police force before, so I had and ideal body figure for a model. Then I encountered a TVB person and they told me its a good company. At the time, my salary as a police was HK$12,000, and at TVB it was only HK$9000, but there will be other income when your an artist, so I decided to sign a contract with them. 

When I first entered TVB, they were preparing to shoot a Wynners' series The Chord to Victory and said I was going to be Kenny Bee or Anthony Chan, but that never happened. Wallace Chung took the role. My first official series was Heroes From Shaolin, I was a really annoying villain. Actually I never learned acting before, but what I remember most was one time we were shooting at a Buddhist monastery, I didn't know anything. Luckily Eddie Cheung and the other artists led me into character! The first few years at TVB, all of my roles were villains. I asked the producer why I'm the only one playing these roles? He said I'm tall and good as the antagonist. 

18 Years with TVB, Didn't Get a Single TVB Award 

I was in the industry for 7 years before I finally got to participate in 2000's The Threshold of an Era. Although I was still a villain, at least I got a supporting role. I was no longer in the third or fifth line. At least when I go out, there were reporters who wanted to interview me. That time, I still remember I had scenes opposite of Liza Wang, she is a very serious and a prepared person. She's always advising me and said that artists should always be aware of surroundings, even if I'm not working. I thought Ah Jeh (Liza) was very professional. She's definitely my idol and mentor! 

Then I was given a role in Triumph in the Skies. It was my first time I got a taste of being popular. Later, when I was helping Flora Chan shoot an MV in Stanley, there were suddenly 30-40 students chasing after me. It turns out they just wanted to take pictures and get my autograph. TITS was such a success, but I didn't even get one My Favorite Character award at TVB. At the time of the anniversary awards, only 10 episodes aired and my scenes didn't come until after 20 something episodes. The next anniversary was already too far, so sometimes it's about luck. Actually Revolving Doors of Vengeance was a pretty popular hit too, but I still didn't get any awards. I've been with TVB for 18 years and didn't get a single award, even I think that is one of my regrets!


Joe Ma's thoughts on his female co-stars: Ada Choi, Charmaine Sheh, Flora Chan & Sonija Kwok

Joe Ma's thoughts on his female co-stars: Ada Choi, Charmaine Sheh, Flora Chan & Sonija Kwok 

Joe Ma has been said to have vigorous peach blossoms (girls), indeed he has had countless rumors since his debut. Almost all of the female artists he had worked with gets a rumor with him. Of course, time proves everything, many of his so-called rumored girlfriends are in fact his good friends. 

JOE: Many people call me a "FaDan Killer". Actually Moses Chan has that title too! Haha! Honestly, there are just two types of rumors in this industry, two artists are dating or two artists are on bad terms. Well, I rarely have any bad term rumors, it's usually just dating rumors! 

I've worked with many actresses, such as Maggie Cheung, Jessica Hsuan, Ada Choi, Charmaine Sheh, Sonija Kwok, Flora Chan, and many more. Let's talk a little bit about Ada Choi. She's a very good artist to learn from because she treats people very well. She makes the people around her feel comfortable and because I'm a Cancer and I've been a police officer before, I'm very defensive. That's why I don't have many friends, she is the one who opened me up. 

I still remember one time we had to shoot early in the morning in the studio. That time I lived in Yuen Long, and couldn't awake up. At the time, I was shooting the series with her, so I called her right away. I told her I overslept and I'm flying over there. Ada heard this and immediately said: "Whatever you do, don't speed! I'll put on my makeup slowly and try to stall a little." Before she hangs up, she asked me if I had breakfast yet. She's really that good of a person! 

As for Charmaine, I collaborated with her in several series. The first one should be in 2001 Country Spirit. People say she's always letting out her 'electricity', but I only feel one thing about her, she's just amazing. She is the only person I've seen that could withstand working overnight. We could get our days and nights confused, but she still manages to maintain the same good looks, nothing changes. She's an actress that never gets overworked! Sometimes we shoot continuously through the nights, she says she's very tired, but she still looks so awake and high spirited. I think she's just a natural beauty, haha! Also, Charmaine's EQ is extremely high. She has a very good temper and sometimes when she hears negative comments, she'll just laugh it off. You will never see her upset. This is the deepest impression Charmaine left on me. 

Sonija Kwok is a person that can really eat. That time we were shooting for several months in Mainland. The environment in Mainland is pretty hard, but she didn't complained at all. She has a straightforward personality. 

My wife in Triumph in the Skies, Flora Chan, she's actually technically my senior. That time, she was already very popular. She taught me a lot. I remember when we were shooting the first scene in TITS, it was pretty intimate. She said I don't have to mind at all, just put my hands on her. In fact, sometimes in kiss scenes, the actor is actually not unnatural than the actress. After all, men can easily get misunderstood. If the actress is as open as Flora, then you feel a lot more comfortable to do the scene.

Jason Chan makes a public love confession to Linda Chung 

Yesterday Linda Chung and Jason Chan were on the busy street in Mong Kok shooting for TVB new series Ferris Wheel Happiness. The scene was about Jason on the street looking for Linda, but since he had no luck, he climbed up on the rails and publicly confessed his love for Linda. When Linda heard the touching confession, the two ended the scene with a hug. 

Jason and Linda were shooting the same scene over and over again, from the beginning to the end of the street. There were over 10 extras serving as their 'bodyguards' and over a hundred 'volunteer extras' (bystanders) madly taking pictures on the side. At one point, there was a confusion with everyone surrounding their idols. When Jason jumped on the rail to confess his love, he accidentally bumped his head on the street light, but he continued shooting as if nothing happened. As for Linda, despite many people surrounding her for pictures, she was still able to get her emotions out for the shoot. Very professional! 

Since the street was crowded, Linda joked she turned into 'Kiu Chi Lam' (her Witness Insecurity role), she said: "There are many staff protecting me, so I'm not afraid." To prevent disturbance, Linda hid herself behind the people to study the script, and rehearsed the scene with Jason. When asked if there was ever a guy who made a love confession to her in public? Linda said: "My first boyfriend, gave me flowers on the street once. I was very touched because we are both shy people!"

Niki Chow helpless, denies fighting with Christine Kuo for Kevin Cheng 

Yesterday Niki Chow, Michael Miu, Joey Meng, Mandy Wong and Vincent Wong attended the costume fitting of new series A Good Heart Goes Haywire. Bosco Wong is also part of the cast, but he was absent from the event. Niki reveals she'll be romantically involved with Bosco, Michael and Vincent. She joked perhaps the producer can see her love life been too dry, so he gave her more guys. When speaking of her in reality, it was rumored she's fighting with Christine Kuo for Kevin Cheng. Niki expressed she's currently focused on her career and declined to comment: "Ask the persons involved. (You are the person involved!) I still don't have any comments, concentrated on my work and I can't even keep up with all those rumors." When asked if she knows about Christine and Kevin's relationship? She said: "I'm not sure, actually I don't know why your asking me. (What is your impression on Christine?) I don't know her, we never collaborated before, but of course I do know who she is. I think we're all just focused on work, these things, like our love lives, I know everyone wants to know...but I really don't have anything to say. (Will there be awkwardness when you two meet?) I don't think so, this industry is small, I'm sure we'll have a chance to meet and collaborate, it doesn't really matter." Niki denied she had secret meetings with Kevin while they were working in Mainland and she refused to comment on whether if she thinks Christine and Kevin matches. She said helplessly: "There is always so many speculations. Perhaps everyone knows I'm single and no one else has appeared yet, so there are news like this. I cannot control it, so it's best not to care about it! (Maybe because everyone really wants to see you two reconcile?) Well.... I don't know what to say! Of course, I hope the media focuses more on our work, relationships...aiya.. I don't have anything else to say. (Have you kept in touch with Kevin?) Aiya...we're colleagues. (Are there any chances between you two?) Ahh..I don't know, I don't know how to answer. (Already good friends, any chance to develop further?) I really don't know, collaborating in series yes, but in personal life, I really don't know, let the Heaven decide." 

Ex-rumored couple JJ Jia and Sammy Shum appeared together at the costume fitting yesterday. At first, despite standing besides one another, they still had zero interaction, but they later took pictures and accepted an interview together. They both expressed they are not embarrassed to work together. When asked if they may get back together in this series? Sammy said he had always been good friends with JJ, but his career is his current priority.

First time collaborating with Michael Miu, Joey Meng looks forward to work with him. When asked what type of impression Joey has on Michael? She said: "I've been watching his TV shows since I was young... oh no, I mean I was already pretty old. (Michael said it's fine, everyone says that.) In high school, my mom always scolded me for watching too much of Michael on TV and didn't do my homework." Joey gets to play Michael's wife on her first collaboration with her. She expressed she's been waiting for this opportunity for a long time. When asked if they have to report to their other half? Michael said it's not necessary, they are all professional artists. Asked if there are any kiss scenes? Michael said: "Any kiss scenes? Still in the making..."

Yesterday Joe Ma and Jessica Hsuan organized a celebration for the success of TVB series Tiger Cubs. The two leads met up with the cast and crew for dinner and enjoyed the finale together. The producer excitedly tried to boost the atmosphere and told the male artists to lift the female artists up in order to help keep the ratings up.

The night of the finale was also the night of the Olympics basketball game finale, Joe hoped the ratings could beat the Olympics. "It's hard to predict. Tiger Cubs got pretty good ratings and feedback, but the Olympics is a huge event, viewers have a choice. (Will you go topless if the ratings surpass 40 points?) When the ratings hit a certain point, I can do something for the series." He joked, last time at the cruise party several of the cast couldn't make it, so this time he hopes to take a 'Tigers Cubs' A&F' photo with Oscar Leung and Him Law and win honor for the people of Hong Kong.

Netizens disappointed of Three Kingdoms RPG's tragic ending

Netizens disappointed of Three Kingdoms RPG's tragic ending

TVB series Three Kingdoms RPG ended on Friday. Kenneth Ma's role SzeMa Shun successfully returns to the future, but he failed to bring his lover Song Yau (Tavia Yeung) back with him. He waited 30 years for another strong typhoon to hit, but as he runs towards the portal to the past, he suddenly gets a heart attack and dies. Not long after Song Yau, who didn't get any older, descends from the sky. The series ends when Song Yau sobs as she looks at SzeMa Shun.

Netizens were extremely dissatisfied with the ending and scolds that the ending was terrible. They believed it was very heartless to not let SzeMa Shun see Song Yau one last time before he dies. Also, its strange that a comedy series had a tragic ending.

Netizens criticized that the ending was very disappointing, the scriptwriters tried too hard to appeal to our emotions, but it wasn't touching enough. SzeMa Shun waited 30 years to see Song Yau again, but Song Yau just had to appear after he dies. It was too tragic that Song Yau had to see SzeMa Shun die, while SzeMa Shun never got to see Song Yau before he died.

Three Kingdoms RPG had a tragic ending just like the previous Witness Insecurity, and both series were produced by Lau Kar Ho, Netizens were displeased by this. There were also Raymond Lam fans, displeased by the little screen time Raymond had. He never appeared after the Battle of Redwall.

Tavia Yeung responded to the complaints, she said: "Perhaps if it was a happy ending, then people will think the endings are always like that. Audience have different demands and different taste. I thought the ending was pretty good and meaningful. Kenneth and I already had a happy ending in The Hippocratic Crush. (Netizens are asking for an alternative ending?) Lau Kar Ho already left TVB, it probably won't happen!" 


Kenneth Ma (SzeMa Shun): "I will bring all the people from the Three Kingdoms to the future. Lau Bei can be the chief executive and Cheung Fei can be the head of the police force, but the most important is that I can marry Song Yau. In the finale, there must be a kiss scene for us too, that's a perfect ending."

Raymond Lam (ChuGot Leung): "SzeMa Shun wanted to bring Song Yau back to the future, but unexpectedly he brings ChuGot Leung instead. Since ChuGot Leung is well educated and talented, SzeMa Shun decides to open a school and let him do all the teaching there and educate more people. SzeMa Shun will be the principal at the school. As for Song Yau, she was left behind in the Three Kingdoms and wasn't able to go to the future with her lover, she sits every day at the location where the portal to the future opens in hope for a miracle to happen. She hopes one day SzeMa Shun can return to the Three Kingdoms, but unfortunately her dream never comes true."

Tavia Yeung (Song Yau): "I get to the future with SzeMa Shun, and teach modern day HK females the good qualities of ancient women and Chinese traditional cooking techniques. In fact, I believe HK females are so busy in the city that they have forgotten Chinese culture, so I will help spread it around. Since I'm back in modern day, I have the freedom to love, just like how it was said in the series, 'good, ugly or bad, its still your choice'. I don't think I'll choose SzeMa Shun! He will instead have to spend more time thinking of how to pursue me again."

Leung Ka Kei (Wong Yuet Ying): "Because ancient women are very pure and gentle, I think men in the future will like them. I'll go to the future with SzeMa Shun and let the modern men know that women aren't just about the looks, but the inner beauty is also very important."

Sharon Chan (Siu Kiu): "SzeMa Shun is too naughty! He should be stuck in the Three Kingdoms as his punishment, so he can crack more jokes and entertain the people in ancient times. Also, it would best for him and Song Yau to get married in the end."

Ruco Chan (Chow Yu): "Don't let Chow Yu die. He has to have a 'relationship' with SzeMa Shun. The two will start out as friends, then turn into close friends."

Cheung Wing Hong (Fan Kan): "SzeMa Shun brings me to the future, so I can continue to serve him. Also, I can keep on being the 'lightbulb' in between him and Song Yau and witness their relationship blossom."

Rachel Kan (Mrs. Kum): "SzeMa Shun successfully brings Song Yau to the future. Song Yau has to get accustomed to life in the future, and they finally have a happy ending. Perhaps the ending can leave room for a sequel!"

Ram Chiang (Man Yuek): "SzeMa Shun brings Song Yau to Mars and the couple opens a KTV and sings 'Always On My Mind' every day, so the aliens can enjoy it!"

Joseph Lee (Lau Bei): "All of us in the Three Kingdoms goes to the future. We go around causing trouble and mess up society. That would be good for a sequel."

Moses Chan's coffee dreams never dies

Yesterday afternoon, Moses Chan appeared in Causeway Bay to attend a coffee function. A few years ago, he opened a coffee shop in Malaysia, but unfortunately it went out of business. As a loyal fan of coffee, Moses is fearless as his dream will not die, he said: "Last time, I loss money, but I just think of that as gaining experience. If I open another coffee shop, it should be in Hong Kong because its convenient for me to manage." Recently there has been a secret photographer in TVB, which has worried many artists. Moses said: "I'm a little worried, but I'm an artist that has nothing to hide, so there is no fear of getting photographed. What I fear most is confidential material may get leaked. There are a lot of things internally that cannot be reveal to the public. If the secret photographer gets a hold of it and leaks its out to the public, then that's unfair to TVB." Moses frankly expressed security at TVB is very good, so he believes this incident is just one exception.

The night before, TVB series "Triumph in the Skies II" filmed a street scene in Lan Kwai Fong, Central.

Fala Chen will be caught between Francis Ng and Julian Cheung, entangled in a triangle relationship in the series.

The night before, it was filming Francis and Fala chatting on the street. Francis showed his energetic side by changing railing into a horizontal bar...both legs off the ground and stretching the bones and muscles. Julian arrived in a white car to pick Fala up; when the two saw each other, they affectionately hugged.

This scene was completed after an hour of filming. During filming, Francis took much initiative...saw him directing the sequence of filming, and also making suggestions to the camera crew on different filming angles. Once Francis ordered 'Can now!', everyone then accommodated to the filming...completely demonstrating the air of a big brother.

Jessica Hsuan to beg Louis Koo to guest star in 'Tiger Cubs' sequel 

Joe Ma, Jessica Hsuan and the rest of the Tiger Cubs cast had a party on the cruise to celebrate the high ratings and also to promote for Sunday's 2 hour finale. Him Law and Vincent Wong were absent from the promotion, but the rest of the male artists showed off their muscles and played in the water. Joe claimed he'll be willing to 'strip' if the ratings goes over 40 points. At the event, Jessica said she was feeling unwell and it wasn't convenient for her to into the water. 

Tiger Cubs aired in a new time slot, getting good ratings and positive feedback. TVB executive chairman Norman Leung expressed there will be a celebration on August 21st; Jessica and Joe expressed they'll make a special trip back to HK to attend the event and will also take the opportunity to ask if there will be a sequel. They hope to shoot a sequel with the original cast and if it does happen, they don't mind asking their friends to guest star. Jessica joked: "It's not difficult to guest star in one episode. I will definitely ask Bobby Au-Yeung, and maybe try Louis Koo. I'll try to kneel down and beg him, maybe he'll come back then. He still has a contract with TVB anyway!" But as for herself, Jessica said she's still discussing a contract with TVB: "We're still discussing, it's going to be a per-series contract and the sequel is one of the attractions." 

Also, Joe attended The Bourne Legacy film premiere with his wife and son. He expressed because of Tiger Cubs, he may have the opportunity to go on the big screen, he said: "I'm currently discussing 2-3 films. It's police roles again, but still interesting." Joe will also be signing a per-series contract with TVB soon, but he'll still concentrate on working in Mainland. "For now, I'm doing one series per year with TVB, will check out the scripts before I decide." He expressed it is still not confirm whether Tiger Cubs will shoot a sequel or film version, but there are already companies willing to invest into producing the film and asked him to participated in the production side of it.
