 "I don't want to be a 'bridezilla'!" says Cantopop singer Ella Koon, in regard to her wedding preparations.

 

According to Mingpao News, while speaking to the media at Metro Radio on 24 November, the recently engaged singer disclosed that she has yet to finalise anything in relation to her wedding day.

 

"A lot of brides turn crazy when they are in the preparatory process. I don't want to be like that," said Ella.

 

The singer also planned to hold a low-key wedding ceremony in Hong Kong, and therefore, will have no need to focus much on preparation.

 

"I don't want it to be complicated. So before the wedding, I will have no problem to focus on my work," she said.

 

Asked when her wedding will be, Ella said that it may only be held in the middle or end of next year.

Hong Kong actress Jennifer Tse denies rumours saying that she has a princess syndrome, which led to her breakup with boyfriend, Sean Dai.

 

As reported on Mingpao News, the actress, who attended a jewellery event on 25 November, said, "Every time a couple breaks up, this kind of rumours will emerge. I have always been independent, thus, it would be impossible for me to have these so-called princess attitude."

 

In regard to rumours saying that she disregarded Sean's mother, socialite Li Guilan, Jennifer said that her relationship with the socialite has been very good.

 

"Why would I be rude to her? My brother and I have always been taught to respect our elders," said Jennifer.

 

In a separate interview with Li Guilan, the socialite also defended the actress, saying, "She has always been nice to me. She is friendly and sweet, a thoughtful person indeed."

Complaints:
- The Telecommunications Bureau received 10 complaints regarding the TVB Anniversary Gala. People complained that personal matters have nothing to do with the audience (such as the proposal and winning prizes), the clothes are too revealing, the show is boring and pointless, frivolous intentions, makes people uncomfortable. 

- There were speculations that the card Chris Lai picked out is actually '9889' turned around and not 6886. When he entered 6886, the password still worked. Tsang Sing Ming denied the accusations of fake results as there are accountants there to supervise.

---
Personal Comment: IMO, the 9889 vs 6886 thing is really just the font type issue..... If the other card numbers were observed, the 6's look the same as the one on his card. Plus 6 and 9 often look the same in certain fonts when turned around anyways =.=

Bosco said that the audience could strongly relate to each character in the film. The film's social influence and value were worthy for young people to be concerned with and to learn from.

Nick Cheung Ka Fai yesterday attended a Christmas lighting ceremony. Ka Fai is busy with a new horror film preparation. Speaking of directing the same genre again, he said, "This time I am taking more risks in hopes of doing better. I will perform as well. Because horror films can't pass Mainland inspection, I hope to find a local actress for the lead. (How about your wife Esther Kwan Wing Ho?) We are too close so that's not too good, it's too early to say." He revealed that he will spend Christmas on a family vacation.

After losing the Golden Horse Best Actress, Gong Li blasted the Golden Horse Award for being unfair and announced that she will no longer participate in the Golden Horse Award. Former Golden Horse Best Actor Ka Fai said, "I have no comment on whether it is fair or not, but I feel Gong Li is pretty cool because she has already made several foreign films. She is an actress with depth and creativity, a point that everyone agrees with. An award would be added bonus, she in everyone's heart is already an actress of certain caliber." He has not seen Gong Li's nominated film COMING HOME, but he has seen her other films. "With Gong Li's sincerity, experience and skills, she is already an international quality actress. Whether she wins or not it is unimportant, I hope she will continue to make films that people appreciate."

Annie Liu (Lau Sum Yau), Shawn Yue Man Lok yesterday attended a Starbucks Christmas event in Tsim Sha Tsui. Annie said that this Christmas she will have to work, but perhaps before or after Christmas she and her co-workers will hold a Christmas party and exchange gifts. She said that last year some co-workers only brought sponsored gifts so this year a limit was set for gifts to be between HK$ 300 to 500. She hoped that everyone would put some sincerity and thought into them. Annie revealed that she will work on a Carrie Ng Ka Lai directed horror film. Earlier Annie has already performed in the Nick Cheung Ka Fai directed horror film. She said that this time she would also play a ghost. She said, "Actually I don't have to imagine the horror too badly, this time I will work with BabyJohn." Annie said that she learned that the film will shoot on location in a funeral parlor. Would she be scared? She said, "I would be, but I won't let myself think too much. When I go to the bathroom I would get a co-worker to go with me." She said that this time she would have rather grotesque looks,which she too looked forward to. The more grotesque she would be the more she liked it.

Yue Man Lok said that he will work on a new film that a ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Wong Cho Nam, Max Zhang Jin, Alex Lam Tak Shun and Stephen Shiu Jr. two nights ago attended the film RISE OF THE LEGEND (WONG FEI HUNG ji YING HUNG YAU MUNG) premiere. Director Roy Chow Hin Yeung did not attend because his wife TO Chi Long was in the delivery room about to give birth. Cho Nam said that in this action film he only had ten seconds of fight scene. He said that his appearance was to relax everyone. In the film he hit 24 Herbs member Phat, but he had no fight scene with Eddie Peng Yu-Yen. He only molested him and rub his chest, much to the envy of many female viewers. Speaking of his TVB series' COME ON, COUSIN rating drop and his marriage proposal at the TVB Anniversary show also did not help the rating, Cho Nam said that he was not certain about the series rating, but the online hit rate was very high. Did he feel Hong Kong Television's launch has affected the ratings. He said, "Knowing your enemy's and your own strength (is the surest way to be invincible), I don't know about their air time, if they broadcast with boxes I believe they won't directly affect rating. Television is another matter." He said that sometimes he would watch HKTV series. He revealed ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The John Woo (Ng Yu Sum) directed romance THE CROSSING I (TAI PING LUN) two days ago held its press conference in Shanghai. He explained how he chose the more compatible coupling for the three kings and the three queens. With Song Hye-Kyo for example, he put other actors' photos next to hers to see which one was the most suitable, the best looking. However Ng Yu Sum admitted that often casting was based on inspiration.

Song Hye-Kyo was asked in real life would she choose Takeshi Kaneshiro (Gum Sing Mo) or Huang Xiaoming for a boyfriend? She said that both were extraordinarily charming. She was greedy too and hoped to choose both. Gum Sing Mo was asked about his mysterious whereabouts in the past 3 years, he explained that it was only because he made less movies lately. As long as he ran into a good chance he would try it, he never planned on how many movies to make. Thus everyone felt he was more mysterious.
