Charlene Choi Cheuk Yin has worked with the skincare product brand Neutrogena for five years. Lately she worked on another "proactive" themed television commercial. Ah Sa said that she was a proactive person since she was little, joking that her "skin was several feet thick". At work she was also an opportunist. She admitted that in love she would also take the initiative to fight for the person she liked. "Of course I wouldn't be as dumb as making my feelings known on my own. I have to sense that he is interested in me before I take the initiative."

Ah Sa lately also took the initiative to accept the challenge of her new film CHOR GEI (CHILD PROSTITUTE), as she played the character from her teens to her thirties. She said, "This character had many tragedies in her life, so I had to study and play this character well. To me it was a very huge challenge."

This was Ekin and Sister Na's first collaboration. How did they add to their chemistry? Ekin admitted that they communicate with their eyes. At the same time they first shot their home scenes and happy scenes for them to be more familiar. He also said, "After working together we realize the all of our chemistry was great, had a lot of spark, and felt very real."

As for their intimate scene, Sister Na joked, "We had many intimate scenes, and we had to shot them on the first day at work. I felt I got the better end of the deal. (Were you drooling?) I drooled all over myself, because the second night was a ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

I have spent the 2013 and 2014 here with everyone, unknowingly we have arrived in the middle of summer. How is everyone's 2014 so far? I heard from the editor that everyone wanted me to continue to share my life here, so I am back. The chapter is new, the name remains the same as I continue to train here.

This year I have started a new chapter in my career. As my work schedule is relaxed, giving me more time to read scripts, experience the characters and enjoy acting. In this chapter I have run into a very important person, he is this film's director Lawrence Cheng Tan Shui. When I saw him the first time, he told me that this script was tailored for me. Honestly, after hearing his story I disagreed. Then I started filming and after I truly got into character, I was very surprised. I have only worked with him two or three times, I could actually imagine what I looked like as a girlfriend. The character was full of shades of me. Although they were of my dating past, the feeling was so similar. During the shoot, I unknowingly turned myself into the female lead Siu Lan. During the production period of more than two months, I seemed to have been in a relationship, truly experienced the sweetness and the tears of this romance. I did not know this love story's ending. The director did not tell me. Thus I especially look forward to watching this film ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Mary Jean Reimer (Yung Jing Jing) yesterday attended a Book Fair event for her book DANGEROUS PEOPLE. Her daughter Lau Man Yi, Master Liu Yat and council member Leung Yiu Chung accompanied her to show their support. 12 books have already been published in this series, with over 30 in the entire series. She revealed that she would try to write about a different subject, but her publishing friend has already retired. Would she ask her daughters to help? She said, "My daughters' Chinese isn't good enough, it's very hard to find someone with good Chinese abilities. Perhaps I may have to find a Mainland friend to help."

As for her late husband Lau Ka Leung, Yung Jing Jing said that she has written about his film productions before. However she wanted to write a biographical film for Master Lau, LAU CHAM JUEN. She said, "When Master Lau was alive he asked me to help him fulfill this wish. As for casting, I actually already have someone in mind. The male lead is a young person with a film background. He once wanted to become Master Lau's mentor, but at the time Master's health was poor so he turned him down. Instead of writing a book, I might as well first this script first." Reportedly, the lead actor choice that she referred to was Jacky Heung Jor.

One of the three Golden Harvest giants Choi Wing Cheong (originally named Choi Duk Sun) passed away last month at the age of 77. Yesterday his funeral took place at the Universal Funeral Parlor in Hung Hom, then his remains were transported to the Wo Hop Shek Crematorium for cremation.

His family followed Choi Wing Cheong's low key manner. The hall was primarily white. Although the screen that was used during earlier ceremonies was removed, the crew still kept the hall door half closed. Family and friends arrived at the hall early to pay their respects and bid this film industry quiet giant farewell.

The ceremony began at 11AM with a Buddhist ceremony. Around a dozen or so monks first chanted in the hall. After the ceremony, the family carried Choi Wing Cheong's photo out of the hall sorrowfully. After getting into the hearse they covered their faces with the photo. Other family and friends was transported on a bus to the crematorium.

'Hot Property' Kenneth Ma only has eyes for 'To Fa'. His eyes light up once he sees Selena Li, who plays 'To Fa' in "Ghost Dragon of Cold Mountain". Selena teased Kenneth for still not being able to pull out of character after completing the series, always wanting to see 'To Fa'. Unfortunately, in real life, 'To Fa', this type of girl, is already extinct!

Kenneth and Selena play a married couple in "Ghost". Kenneth describes 'To Fa' as a perfect wife, a village girl who is pure and cute, has a tough personality, is loyal to her husband, and knows how to cook...also hopes to encounter 'To Fa' in real life. Selena agrees with 'To Fa' being very great, and is an extinct dinosaur. It seems that Kenneth has to lower his conditions for an ideal partner, but Kenneth asked in reply: "Is it considered high expectations to want a village girl?"

Last year, Kenneth and Selena set a 'single in five years' promise, such that if they were both still single in five years, Kenneth would take Selena as his wife. When asked whether this 'single' promise was still effective, Kenneth said, " think that four and a half years has passed. I think that it should be effective". Selena laughingly said that she was was scared, and did not know how to answer. Kenneth said that Selena's qualifications are good, so normal to have expectations for an ideal partner. Selena denied, "I don't have any particular expectations. The feeling is very important. If a person has ambitions, it would naturally make me adore him. Obviously, must be faithful to .....

Hong Kong actor Kevin Cheng was infuriated with the recent rumour of an affair with his cousin, Wang Xian Yong, Oriental Daily reported.

 

Previously, it was rumoured that Wang, who serves as his personal assistant and photographer, has been having marital problems due to her affair with the actor.

 

Allegedly, Kevin and Wang have been spending most of their time together and even had a secret trip to Singapore earlier this year.

 

However, when asked to respond to the rumours, Kevin, who was filming an action scene for his upcoming series "Eye in the Sky" recently, expressed his anger and said that he may sue the magazine that published the report.

 

"I understand that as an artiste, there is bound to be some gossips about you. Though I have put up with various slanderous reports, there is a limit to my tolerance," said Kevin.

 

He added, "This time, my family's reputation has been damaged. I won't keep quiet anymore."

The finale of The Ultimate Addiction received moderate ratings at 24 points last week. The 30-episode series garnered mediocre reviews and unimpressive viewership ratings in Hong Kong during its run. Despite the results, Bosco Wong expressed that he is still satisfied with the series. Bosco, Sharon Chan, and Michael Tse attended a function to promote for an upcoming friendship concert that will take place in Manila, Philippines on August 16. When asked why the cast of The Ultimate Addiction did not gather to watch the finale together, Bosco explained it had nothing to do with the series’ ratings; several artistes were not in Hong Kong at the time. Kate Tsui and Nancy Wu are both abroad, and even Bosco just returned home a few days ago.

Regarding the series’ mediocre ratings, Bosco tried his best in his performance and viewers’ reception is beyond his control. Although Hong Kong viewership ratings were quite low, Bosco pointed out that the series attracted an impressive number of online viewers from Mainland China.

When asked if she is afraid it will affect her marriage plans, Sharon replied, “It won’t matter, because these things can occur at the same time.”

Model, Jacquelin Chong, released a new book, self-exposing her six relationships. Yesterday, she appeared at the book fair, and admitted that ex-boyfriend, Deep Ng, is one of the "leads" of the book, and even described him as her first "boy"friend. Because of his words, "I don't want you to not even try", they entered a relationship. Other than talking about her friends' sexual tendencies, she also exposed that someone in the entertainment industry once used sex to get jobs, just like "legal rape".

Jacquelin Chong appeared at the book fair yesterday to promote her new book "大情大性講情講性" (Openly Talking about Love and Sex). Although she was dressed a bit conservatively, but she laughed saying she was scared it would affect other's appetite, and also exposed her new book's secrets - exposing her past six relationships, including her relationship with Deep Ng, friends' sexual experiences and the dark secrets of the entertainment industry! She was very daring to expose secrets related to others; after a lot of thinking, she believed that there is nothing to hide, and decided to expose her own love history. She revealed that she wrote about how she and ex-boyfriend Deep Ng got along: "I wrote about six past love relationships, Deep Ng is included. Although I didn't use any names, but once you read the section, you can tell it's him. (Gift a book to him?) Good idea, but I'm scared he won't dare read it, because I didn't notify him beforehand." 

Not scared Sherman Chung will be mad

In other words, this means that Deep Ng unknowingly became one of the "leads" in her book. Jacquelin, who has never had anything to be scared of, expressed that she is not scared that Deep's current ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
