TVB artiste Sisley Choi (蔡思貝) is always surrounded by endless rumours and describes as 'electric factory' but she is pointed to dating with dancing instructor, Shing MCS (麥秋成). Although both do not admit their romance until now, but she accidentally revealed it during BBQ gathering with her colleagues earlier. Virginia Lau (劉溫馨), Vivien Yeo (楊秀惠), Ou Yang Hau Ying (歐陽巧瑩) shared their group photo and Sisley and Shing MCS touched each other waists in the photo. Look like they are really 'good friends'!

Dared not greet Stephen Chow

Karena disclosed she met Stephen Chow when having dinner with her boyfriend, Raymond Lam (林峯) and Stephen came up to them and offered to pay the bill: "I did not greet him as afraid of disturbing him. (Did you introduce yourself?) Nope and I feel very happy though. (Did Raymond talk to him?) Only say hi and bye."

When mentioned about the public viewed Stephen as stingy man, Karena defended her idol by saying he was very nice. Asking if she wished to film movie with him, Karena said: "Yes but unsure if he will film movie again. (Raymond and you are injured when skiing in Japan earlier?) My neck is injured and we are injured at different area. (Celebrate New Year together after that?) He needs to prepare for his concert. (Return to Xiamen with him?) Nope, will be staying in Hong Kong but hope to go to his house for Lunar New Year greetings and give them presents. (Give to children?) Has to get married first and let's do it step by step first.

The Communications Authority is not in the position to find TVB in breach of the Broadcasting Ordinance, neither in its capacity as a policy adviser nor as an enforcement body, the High Court ruled on Friday.

 

In 2013, the watchdog found Television Broadcasts Ltd violated the ordinance, in that the station had prevented, distorted and substantially restricted competition in the local TV market by adopting certain contracts with their artists and singers.

 

But the station, which was ordered to end the practices and was fined HK$900,000, lodged a judicial review against the watchdog’s decision.

 

Giving his reasons for upholding the review, Court of First Instance Judge Mr Justice Godfrey Lam Wan-ho noted the multiple hats donned by the head of the authority during adjudication.

 

“This process has been said to be administrative and inquisitorial, with the Authority acting successively as the investigator, the prosecutor and the judge,” Lam wrote, before ordering the authority’s decision to be quashed.

 

He ruled the decision to penalise TVB affect its rights and obligations and therefore should be dealt with by an impartial tribunal according to the Bill of Rights.

 

Lam was aware that the authority was a policy-making body with an advisory role, apart from carrying out investigation and deciding on allegations.

 

For example, the authority advised the Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development on legislation and policy relating to telecommunications and broadcasting. It also had close ties to the Chief Executive In Council, advising him on licence applications.

 

But when giving a ruling on whether TVB had breached law, one must looked into the television market, such as what difficulties existed and the effect of TVB’s conduct on competition, he said.

 

“It seems to me plain that there is significant potential overlap between these questions and the considerations that the authority had constantly to take account ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The Stephen Chow Sing Chi produced, directed, and written film MERMAID (MEI YUN YU) will open in February. The film's two leads Show Lo (Law Chi Cheung) and Jelly Lin Yun appeared on the Cable high definition entertainment station program Film Montage with Sing Yeh. Speaking of Sing Yeh choosing Lin Yun out of 120,000 candidates to play the mermaid, she admitted that she had pressure because Sing Yeh was a very serious director. He would personally demonstrate the scene. The first time working with him she had a lot of pressure, but she believed that pressure was motivation.

Why would Sing Yeh choose Lin Yun? He felt that she was an unique girl, with an innocent quality that completely unlike human. She was like a wild animal and was very suitable for this character. Sing Yeh pointed out that now it is very hard to make a movie, the hardest is to come up with a good script. Each time he hoped to add in different creativity, to give the audience something fresh. However the audience was very highly demanding. They have seen even better films, to please them had certain difficulty. When would Sing Yeh return to the screen? He said, "I don't know! It's possible, with the right role I would consider it."

Playing the octopus in the film, Piggy was accused of taking Sing Yeh's favorite character. He joked that only he knew the pain. Everyday he had to get up early for make up. ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Singer Hins Cheung (張敬軒) was hospitalised for pneumonia a few days ago and the company announced his concert, Live in Passion was re-scheduled from 30 January to 27 February as a result. Yesterday morning, his good friends such as Joey Yung (容祖兒) and Raymond Lam (林峯) agreed to help him to attend events and sing on his behalf. Hins said emotionally: "I join EEG almost 4 years and everyone treats me very nice and we resemble a family. Hence, I called Joey immediately when she was setting her hairdo and she agreed to help me without asking much questions." However, I have another event to attend but it was cancelled due to my condition today but Raymond agreed to attend it on my behalf immediately. Where to find such good 'brother' and 'sister'?"

Fever had disappeared

Yesterday morning on the Internet, Hins updated his condition that his fever had disappeared and in a stable condition now: "The nurse who gives me an injection today wishes me Happy Birthday and I feel very touched. Anyway, thank you to her! I am in a stable condition today and my fever had disappeared."

The Year of the Monkey Luanr New Year epic THE MONKEY KING 2 (SAI YAU GEI ji SUEN NG HUNG SAM DA BAK GWUT JING) in order to bring about the fantasy world of JOURNEY TO THE WEST had 98% of its shots undergone the special effect treatment. The total number of special effect shots reached 2,300. No wonder the film's realistic effects could rival Hollywood's.

Sing Sing in the film fought from a small village to an ancient city to a snowy land, repeatedly going after Gong Li who wanted to harm the Tang Monk (Feng Shaofeng). Under action director Sammo Hung Kam Bo's thoughtful designs and a lot of computer special effect shots, the action scenes were extremely entertaining. The White Bone Spirit transformed into half a giant skeleton to battle Wukong left many breathless.

Gong Li in the film's black and white White Bone Spirit costume with her red eyes and black and white scales that were barely visible added to her mystery. In order to gain the Tang Monk's trust, She turned into an old lady. Not only were the make up and costume so convincing that no one recognized Gong Li, but also her sorrowful eyes as she spoke of her bitter life as one of the unlucky ones made her acting convincing as well!

Sing Sing held his own. Under the team's special design half human, half monkey special effect ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

National Art Entertainment Culture Group chief Checkley Sin Kwok Lam yesterday attended a micro film event. He denied recent report that he gave full support to Rachel Chau Ka Lei and neglected Rose Chan Ka Wun and explained the reason that Ka Lei will star in five micro films. "Because she has little performance experience. Ka Wun already has seven years of film experience, she has more training than Chau Ka Lei. I don't sign a lot of poeple like other companies, I just sign a few. I hope everyone can be honed." He also said that Ka Wun will give guidance to Ka Lei on the set.

Gordon Lam Ka Tung said that his film TRIVISA (SHU DAI JIU FUNG) was selected for the Berlin Film Festival. Due to work he might not be able to attend. He hoped to be able to perform even more on camera in the upcoming year.

She not only taught Chow Yun Fat the Sichuan dialect to greet viewers but even prepared the local Lunar New Year "Lai Tang Yuan" to give him a taste of Chengdu.

The "Lai Tang Yuan" that Lee Yuchun prepared had dice designs on them, which made Chow Yun Fat rather happy. After he tried some he had nothing but praise. Director Lau Wai Keung even joked, "This is the best Tang Yuan that I have ever had!" The always friendly Chow Yun Fat even fed the female host and the fans went into an uproar, which filled the venue with Spring Festival atmosphere.
