Taiwanese model-actress Lin Chi-ling attended an event in Dongguan, China last Friday and got 'ambushed' by a male fan on stage. Fans had requested her to pose for 10 photos on stage when the man suddenly rushed to her and opened his arms in an act to hug her.
To everyone's surprise, the high EQ model did not appear shocked by his advances but smiled back at him gracefully instead. She even took a photo with him on stage.
In other related news, Chi-ling was spotted holding hands with a man on the streets but she maintained they were only good friends. She is still single at the moment but will start working hard, and even promised to get attached by next year.
Chi-ling's relationship status has been in the limelight for years and the 39-year-old even froze her eggs this April for fertility preservation, seemingly preparing for children.

The Hong Kong actress's contract with TVB will expire in seven months and she may explore the Chinese market next
Hong Kong actress Myolie Wu is believed to have plans to enter the Chinese market after her contract with Television Broadcasts Limited (TVB) ends seven months later. TVB has slackened its control over their artistes after seeing names such as Raymond Lam and Shirley Yeung leave, allowing them to venture overseas.
Myolie has filmed up to seven dramas in China and garnered much support there. Insiders revealed she could be paid up to RMB$150,000 (approximately S$30,000) an episode in China compared to HK$20,000 (approximately S$3,000) in TVB.
The schedule for filming in China is also regular with more time for celebrities to rest. The 34-year-old has been mingling with Chinese producers and even sought opinions from her Chinese friends on whether she should further her career there.
Most have expressed support towards that option and entertainment companies from Beijing have even offered her a place.
However, Myolie is still weighing her options and said, 'Both TVB and some Chinese companies have talked to me but it is too early to think of this. Furthermore, I still have some time in TVB and I have a good work relationship with the company.'

The Nicholas Tse Ting Fung and Gao Yuanyuan starred romance BUT ALWAYS (YUT SUN YUT SAI) will open Thursday in Hong Kong. Yesterday they promoted their new film in Kowloon Bay. The event arranged for two couples to their multiple poster poses on the stage. Seeing the sweet couples, Ting Fung joked that he has not watched a film in that shopping center in a long time.
Ting Fung said thinking back he watched a movie at that shopping center with Wilfred Lau Ho Lung, but he stated that he would not watch movies on his dates. Then what would he do? He declined to say more about it. Speaking of the decent response to his food program, Ting Fung revealed that he was already in negotiation for a second installment and stressed that it will be very different from the first. In particular the production format will be different. He said, "I already spent ten months on post production of the first installment. This time I am considering shooting in a restaurant to search for different food culture."

The film TRIUMPH IN THE SKIES (CHUNG SEUNG WON SIU) not only had the television series' "Sam Gor" Francis Ng Chun Yu and "Cool Demon" Julian Cheung Chi Lam but also added hunk Louis Koo Tin Lok, hotties Sammi Cheng Sau Man and Charmaine Sheh Si Man. The cast already made the film rather attractive. From just a glimpse of this team, Sammi and Goo Jai's old rumor and another ancient rumor couple Cheung Chi Lam and Ah Sheh, the gossip topics already won out. Unexpectedly the story came with mismatches of Sammi with Sam Gor and Goo Jai and Amber Kuo......
On the day of the production start, although Sammi and Chilam both denied that their other halves (Andy Hui Chi On and Anita Yuen Wing Yi) have objected to pairing with past rumored partners Goo Jai and Ah Sheh and that day they graciously posed for photos together, actually the two rumored couples truly ahd no scene together. Ah Sheh and Chi Lam would be unable to continue their RETURN OF THE CUCKOO romance from 14 years ago. Chilam pointed out that the rumor dragged in his family, as his wife Yuen Wing Yi was helplessly blamed. How could an outside influence the story arrangement?

The star-studded event was graced by A-list celebrities including Jay Chou, JJ Lin, Jam Hsiao, Lee Hom and wife Lee Jinglei, who made her first public appearance since she gave birth in July.
Although Lee Hom and Jinglei did not accept interviews at the wedding, the couple happily posed for photos. Dressed in a black suit, JJ Lin said that he has never met the bride previously. 'Congratulations, David! I wish the newlyweds eternal love and I hope he will continue to contribute the music industry after getting married!' he quipped.
As Jay was in Shenzhen, China for a concert on Saturday, he rushed to the hotel from the airport after his flight back to Taipei was delayed. While speaking to reporters, the multi-hyphenate revealed that he had sent a text message to David, in case he could not make it in time for the wedding. 'I wrote: 'If your kids think that you are too strict [in teaching music] in future, they can come and learn from me!'' he laughed.
Jam, who was seated at the same table as his seniors, shared that he became good friends with David after Beijing TV's reality singing contest China Best Voice. Not only did the 30-year-old agreed to be the wedding singer, he presented the couple with a teacup set from luxury brand HermÃ¨s.

The Taiwanese actor, who was detained for 14 days for using marijuana, expressed deeply regret over his actions
Taiwanese actor Kai Ko, who was arrested in China last month for using marijuana, held a public apology in Beijing last Friday following his release. He returned to Taiwan on Saturday and held a similar public apology.
During the press conference, Kai apologised repeatedly for disappointing those who supported him and promised to 'change for the better'. He also admitted to feeling lost and said that he had entertained thoughts of quitting showbiz during his two-week detention.
His manager, Angie Chai, told the media she was heartbroken when the first thing she heard from him after his release was, 'What do I do now? I cannot work for the company anymore.'
When asked about his detention, the 23-year-old confessed to not being able to sleep in peace. He had to get up at six in the morning for lessons and shared a room with eight other people. The actor did not receive any special treatment and said, 'Those who shared the room with me do not know who I am.'
The star, who shot to fame for his role in romance flick You're The Apple Of My Eye, was accused of putting on a show when he cried profusely at an earlier press conference in Beijing. But Kai said it was not for show and no scripts were written.
As for previous news on China's media industry banning him for two years, both Kai and Angie clarified they have not received any ruling to date. Although there have been several pull-outs from advertisers, the actor has garnered support from many others too.
Kai has not finalised plans for a comeback and will lie low for ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The singer fought hard for the bouquet toss at Kenny Bee's wedding and revealed his wish to get married underwater
Asia's dancing king Show Luo attended Hong Kong actor Kenny Bee's wedding last Monday and jumped above those who were lining up for the bouquet toss to 'claim the grand prize'.
When asked if he planned on getting married, the singer-actor laughed, 'The bouquet toss is like a competition to me, so I cannot lose. There were so many children who are just a little over 10 years old, it is too early for them (to get married), so I grabbed the bouquet.'
But Show has already started dreaming about his wedding. 'I hope it'd be as grand as a Hollywood wedding. I used to think about holding it at the Taipei Arena, but now, I think an underwater wedding will be pretty cool with my guests all in oxygen masks.'
His manager immediately rebutted, 'How can you say 'I do' when nothing can be heard underwater? You still have to use hand gestures.'
Last Saturday, the 35-year-old held an autograph session-cum-sale event for his new DVD, Over The Limit Puzzle Live Tour DVD and his new book, Dream Puzzle, which was released last month.
Over The Limit Puzzle Live Tour DVD sold more than 50,000 copies in less than a month, and Dream Puzzle was the best seller of blogshops and Kingstone bookstores.
He said, 'Without you, I will not be able to complete my dream puzzle. This event was postponed after the Kaohsiung gas leak explosions. Although there are fewer reports of the incident now, we should still show our care to those in Kaohsiung.'
To express his appreciation for his fans, Show has reportedly forked out NT$100,000 (approximately S$4,100) for 11 mist fans and 1000 bottles of ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
