Previously when she had an opening in her schedule, she celebrated her birthday in advance with over 200 Hong Kong and overseas fans. Charlene has always wanted to be able to do more good deeds and help vulnerable families. As a result, for her birthday gathering this year, fans answered Charlene's appeal and decided not to give flowers and presents. Instead, they used this money to buy rice and gave it to charities in need. At the beginning of the birthday gathering, the charity organization representative accepted the rice voucher from Charlene and expressed their great appreciation.   In order to give their idol a birthday surprise, fans specially asked EEG staff about the food Charlene likes and prepared a "Braised pork with bean curd rice + Chinese vegetable" design cake. Upon seeing the cake, Charlene who was so astonished that she could not bear to cut the cake. After singing the birthday song, 14 lucky fans who were chosen from a draw played games with Charlene.   Soon after, Charlene brought out her own personal items to sell for charity, with all proceeds going to the rice donation. With everyone's combined effort, they together donated over 45 000 meals. Charlene expressed, "Thank you to all the "Little Silly Sa's" who came today and helped celebrate this "Big Silly Sa's" birthday in advance. I never thought that my birthday was this significant. Thank you to everyone for putting my words into action! Today, we together donated 2000 kg of rice, which will be ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Ram Chiang and Rita Carpio attended a Christmas event, which was a small concert, attracting over a hundred passersby. Ram and Rita sang 《相逢何必曾相識》 at a mall for the first time; the passersby there sang along.

Ram frankly said that, singing this song again, the feeling is very profound, and it also made Rita recall many things in the past. When asked whether they would hold a concert, they both said that they were slightly afraid to. Rita laughingly said that she held a small concert before; back then, she felt very nervous. If she were to collaborate with Ram, it would be held at the Coliseum, and the pressure would be even greater. Ram said that holding a show in Hong Kong is a lot of pressure, laughingly saying that he would consider again after completing stage performances in the US and Canada, and also said that he has been frequently practicing singing recently. When asked whether there were any singers who have requested songs from him, he said, "I will take the initiative to write for the singers whom I would like to give songs to. In my heart, there are a few candidates, but it hasn't come to fruition, so will not say, or else it would be very awkward".

Ram revealed that there are many money-making shows inviting the two of them to attend, but had to reject a lot because he has to go to Mainland at the end of the month to film a series. Everything cannot be about making money...must have principles.
