Intercontinental Group Holdings honorary president Terry Lai (Lady Lai) is the earlier female film distributor who imported many popular Hollywood films into Hong Kong and contributed a lot to the Hong Kong film industry. She also received the Hong Kong Film Award Lifetime Achievement Award. In recent years she has been working hard to promote care for Hong Kong elderly's physical and mental health. A year ago she organized the Community Care Age Foundation, establishing health clinics to provide free assistance to seniors in the areas with dense aging population like Po Tat Estate in Kwun Tong. With professional medical care personnel providing appropriate assistance, seniors would not have to worry about minor illness or pain or even hospitalization.

As the Intercontinental Group Holding celebrates its 45th anniversary, Lady Lai on the 18th (Saturday) will hold a charity fund raising walk at the Peak in the morning to support the Community Care Age Foundation. As even more health clinics would hopefully be set up in more areas. The next target would be Sham Shui Po. At the same time the event hoped to draw everyone's attention to have health clinic assistance area in all 98 districts of Hong Kong for elders in need.

Lady Lai said, "Hong Kong made the jump from a small fishing harbor to the Pearl of the Orient completely due to our parents and grandparents' hard work. Today it is our time to repay them. Regrettably lately our environment has become very noisy and disturbing. I hope this 'walk for senior' event would be able to bring out everyone's charitable hearts so seniors can peacefully rest at home. Everyone loves home, loves their community with harmony."

Candy Yuen Ka Man yesterday promoted her new film with Sharon Hsu Wei-En in Tsuen Wan. Two actors who played zombies accompanied them. Yuen Ka Man admitted that later she will perform in the buff in Wong Jing's new film but denied that she took the initiative to stick to Louis Koo Tin Lok. She was not familiar with him at all. She only loved the toy models that Goo Jai collected.

Yuen Ka Man in the new film played a female warden. In one scene she wore a tailored leather costume and whipped Andy Tien (On Chi Kit). She said that the film performed well at the box office she would not mind wearing it for Halloween again. She also said that the scene left red marks all over On Chi Kit's body. Thus after the beating she hug him and said sorry. Luckily he did not mind, but she worried that she might suffer retribution. Speaking of her fully nude performance in the upcoming Wong Jing film, she at first only said, "During the shoot I will be naked, but how it will turn out I don't know. I haven't worked with this director before, I don't know how it will be edited." Later she finally confirmed that it will be an all nude performance.

In addition, she was rumored to have taken the initiative to stick to Goo Jai. She said that she did not understand why such a rumor would appear. Although Goo Jai produced NAKED AMBITION 3D (3D HO CHING), they did not have ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

As the "Occupy Central" movement continues in Hong Kong, a rumor spread online that the propaganda ministry that was responsible for public opinion in the Mainland has ordered its tens of thousands of the so-called "five cents" "internet commentators" to start a "public opinion" attack online against Hong Kong artists who supported "Occupy central". The authority has already issued model essay that were similar to "guidance" for "five cent" to follow the related logic and wording to discredit those people as "traitor artists". The so-called "five cents" actually was the most basic structure of the stability maintenance force that numbered in millions, it was also its vanguard. However they spent more than the military, in the over 8 billion yuan RMB annual stability maintenance budget they got only a minuscule portion, thus they were ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

 Cecilia Cheung's manager, Yu Yu Xing, has recently denied allegations made by Haisong Group that the actress has breached her contract.


As reported on China News, previously, the company's president Gong Tinghai accused the actress of breaching her contract by not attending a recording session of a programme, "Goddess New Clothes" (also known as "Muse Dress"), after signing the agreement and being paid RMB 2 million (approximately USD 326,155).


Gong stated that he has already reported the incident to the police and will take legal action against the actress and her management agency.

However, according to Yu, it was Haisong Group who broke their terms first.


Yu stated that the company changed the channel where the show was supposed to air, from Hunan TV to Dragon TV without informing them.


Yu also revealed that Haisong Group has even changed other part of the agreement, including the structure of the show, its content and guests.


"Cecilia has the right not to attend as she follows the terms of the contract that she signed," Yu said.

Promoting his upcoming new series "Inbound Troubles II", Roger Kwok admitted that he is not confident about winning TV King at this year's TVB Anniversary Awards.


According to On CC News, the actor, who accepted an interview with Metro Radio recently, stated, "I may be nominated, but I am not that confident about winning. I just hope the new series will get good reviews. I know "Line Walker" was well-received."


Asked if he was worried about the voting system, Roger said that he will not pay much attention to it, as long as he is well-liked by the audience.


"A lot of people liked my performance in "Black Heart, White Soul" and it has been quite a while since I received such a positive feedback," he said.


The actor expressed his hopes that his performance in the second season of "Inbound Troubles" will get the same feedback as well and that the series will get good viewership like its predecessor last year.


"I will be playing a role of an environmentalist with a long hair. The image is similar to a beggar!" he joked.

They not only folded offering but also performed other paper offering in the shape of brand name handbag, shoes, clothing and pet kittens. In front of her tablet was Sister Mui's favorite food like cake, beef chow fun, Hainan chicken and rice, curry, instant noodle cups, cola with the word "vermicelli" and other offerings. The fresh flower and fruit baskets had "Happy Birthday" in both Chinese and English. Fans obviously missed Sister Mui.

The Anita Mui International Fan Club president Ms. So wore the necklace and watch that Sister Mui has worn before from the auction and presented incense quietly. Later Sister Mui's manager Marianne Wong Man Wai came with orchid. She and Ms. So chatted a little then left. Ms. So said that every year on Sister Mui's birthday and passing anniversary memorial events would be held. She would attend as usual. Two nights ago she and her friends met, listened to Sister Mui's songs and recalled some of Sister Mui's past. Thus she did not sleep too well. She lamented, "In the brink of an eye it has already been 11 years, time truly has passed very ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Singer Kay Tse appeared in TVB City to record a programme. When being interviewed, Kay revealed that she would be filming a TVB series for the first time next year, even becoming a hot vampire: "Matched a half year of time in order to make it happen. (Filming a series for the first time?) Yes. I really like to act as a vampire...also pretty and has supernatural powers. I always use telekinesis to turn off the light at home; in the end, Louis Cheung would go turn it off". When asked whether she would feel nervous, she immediately revealed having trauma toward being on wires: "Nervous because it would hurt a lot when being on wires. When filming an ad, the wires were strapped on too tightly, causing me to throw up...very afraid!" She said that she will begin kung fu practice in November, and will begin filming the series in February.

Son Wants to Body Swap

When asked whether she would learn from husband Louis, who has been filming series, she immediately praised her husband: "He said he would consider [teaching me]. I really admire his wit when he is acting...really captivates me to watch!" When asked whether acting as a vampire would frighten her son, Kay said, "When I was pregnant, I kept watching vampire films, so my son also likes [them]. If I portray a vampire, he would really worship me. He is very funny...always hopes to have the ability to body swap".
