Working on a movie in the hot summer heat has severely dampened Karena Ng's mood, as the actress recently admitted.

 

As reported on Singtao Daily, the young star, who was in Central to shoot a scene for her new movie, "Where Are You?" with co-star Wong You Nam and Wan Kwong stated that the temperature was so high at the location that she even had trouble breathing right.

 

"It really felt like the biggest challenge in my film career right now," said Karena. "The temperature is too high, I have lost my appetite and I am currently dehydrated."

 

Karena also revealed that she has recently been offered to star in a period film, but with the current weather, the actress said that she would think twice before making any decision.

 

However, the actress gleefully revealed that she will be taking a short break after the filming concludes later this month.

Francis Ng shed tears when his son, Feynman Ng, injured himself when he fell into a pond

Hong Kong actor Francis Ng shed tears over his son, Feynman Ngâs injury, proving that heâs a doting dad after all.
The 52-year-old and Feynman, 5, are currently the hottest father-son pairing in Dad, Where Are We Going 2, the second season of the popular Chinese reality show. Francisâ parenting style has drawn exceptional attention, for he prefers to give his son tough love instead of pampering him like other parents do to their children.

According to Chinese media reports, the playful Feynman recently fell into a pond while fooling around. After he was saved by staff from the production team, Feynman remained behind and was afraid to go home for fear of his father finding out about the consequences of his mischief.

Francis eventually came looking for his son. After learning about the incident from the staff, he gathered Feynman into his arms and chided, 'Why didn't [you] go home if you're hurt, think about it yourself.

After they got home, the actor carefully applied medication onto Feynmanâs wound. Although he continued to scold the latter for misbehaving, it was evident that his heart hurt for his son.

He told Feynman, 'Next time if you're hurt, you must let me know, okay?â Father and son even made a pinky promise.

Francis then hugged Feynman tightly and shed tears as he reminisced about how his own mother had scolded him on the way home when he got hurt while playing many years ago: 'You must remember this forever ' [your] mother crying while beating you, reasoning with you, you must remember those teachings forever.'

Nick Cheung Ka Fai's directing debut HUNGRY GHOST RITUALS (YU LAN SUN GUNG) had a good opening. After two days in release it already made 3.71 million. Because Ka Fai was working on FROM VEGAS TO MACAU 2 (DOH SING FUNG WON 2) in Thailand, he sent two lead actresses Annie Liu (Lau Sum Yau) and Carrie Ng Ka Lai to the cinemas for audience appreciation. Sum Yau said that the film's good box office performance surprised everyone very much. This was Ka Fai's first "BB", he was very happy that everyone supported him. Unfortunately Ka Fai due to work could not celebrate together with them. Will she ask Ka Fai to take them to a feast? She said that earlier she asked Ka Fai to take everyone to the Maldives for a holiday in hopes of him displaying his six pack abdominal muscles again. However she knew that this was impossible. Speaking of Ka Fai's abdominal muscles already returning to one piece, she said that he could very quickly train them back. This was sacrifice for box office. She said that she was working hard on her vest line, but the coach pointed out that she would not see any result until half a year and without diet coordination. Would she display her successful training results in a bikini? She said that she would not need to wear a bikini. She felt that beauty only came from not being deliberate. Would she consider publishing a photo book? She said that would depend on the results, but if she ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Even if his film did not perform well at the box office he still remained by him. Luckily after the lawsuit was exposed, he received legal world elders' advice and understood that if he would continue on his mistake would only worsen. He immediately halted and corrected himself. He was willing to make compensation to his master. He also apologized to everyone at his management company National Arts. The statement content was similar an earlier report of "seven sins".

Hong Kong actor Roy Cheung Yiu-yeung is under administrative detention after being allegedly found with marijuana in a Beijing hotel. Cheung, 50, was staying at the Ritz-Carlton at the time, Beijing Youth Daily and Xinhua News Agency reported.

Officers from the Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau Narcotics Control Commission also seized 1.15 grams of marijuana in his luggage and his urine sample tested positive for the drug. Cheung, who is reported to have admitted the offenses, was said to be on his way to Hebei to attend the wedding of a friend. Some reports also allege Cheung, who is expected to be detained for at least 20 days, was also involved in prostitution. Some Hong Kong actors said they are shocked and fear for the safety of Cheung.

Singer Remus Choy Yat-kit said: "As a friend I am worried about him. "I could not contact him and I will pay attention to news reports. But it is improper if he has really taken up such a bad habit." Cheung joined the entertainment industry as a model and made his first movie appearance in 1986. Renowned for his charismatic portrayals of gangsters and triad members, Cheung appeared in more than 90 movies including the popular Young and Dangerous series and Infernal Affairs. 

Cheung was named best supporting actor for his role in The Mission, which was directed by Johnny To Kei- fung in 1999. He was recently diagnosed to be suffering from a slipped disc, forcing him to reduce his screen appearances.
