 Though their noodle shop in Causeway Bay had a recent drop in sales due to the Occupy Central protests, Hacken Lee and Alan Tam's business continues to soar with the opening of their fourth Starz Kitchen shop.


As reported on Oriental Daily, while speaking to the media at the grand opening of their new eatery on 28 October, located inside The City of Dreams along the Cotai Strip, Hacken said that he is delighted to finally be able to open his own shop in his hometown.


Hacken and Alan also revealed that they are planning to open at least another 20 branches of Starz Kitchen around the world and want to be listed on the stock exchange.


"I want to target Japan next," said Alan. "Japan's ramen is popular around Asia. Now it's the time for wonton as well!"


Starz Kitchen was first opened in Whampoa, in 2012. Its success led to another branch in Causeway Bay in January this year, while the third branch was opened in Shanghai.

Thursday October 30, 2014 Hong Kong







While his wife Aimee Chan would want to wait before getting pregnant again after giving birth to their second son next year, Moses Chan hopes to have his own Chan's football team instead!


According to Mingpao News, the actor, who attended the premiere of his new movie "Dot 2 Dot" recently, stated that there is a likelihood that they will get a baby girl next time around.


"There's a great chance that the next child will be a girl. At this age, the more children the better, as it is a blessing from God. Having a football team would be the best!" Moses enthused.


Asked if his wife would share his enthusiasm, Moses laughed and said, "She is okay with it. It has always been part of the plan. But it's not like we're deliberately trying for a daughter. We just love children very much."

TVB's Calendar theme for 2015 this time are the hit "main" series of each month. TVB's Deputy Director, Tsang Sing Ming, denied that the theme this year is due to the company reducing expenses: "It is not saving money. Every artiste took out the time to take these photos just for the calendar, and we even hired an external source for the design. We spent approximately a 7-figure sum for these photos." When the dramas come to air, they will still be making another official poster for the dramas. 26 fa dans and siu sangs head the cover of the calendar. 
Tsang Sing Ming responds: "The calendar can only print 12 dramas, but we have 20+ dramas every year. Like, Myolie's drama "Lady Sour", it will be airing in December, so we did not print it. So we placed her in the cover to make up for it. (Liza Wang, Dodo Cheng are not on the cover?) We have a few hundred people in the company, it is impossible to include everyone."

Joo Won shared his thoughts on physical contact on JTBC’s Witch Hunt.

While filming the 64th episode of Witch Hunt, Joo Won held a discussion with the MCs on ‘My Girl’s Skinship.’ During the show, a citizen shared his concern about his girlfriend, who was innocent in the beginning but has turned too aggressive about wanting skinship.

Joo Won said, “I also prefer it when my girlfriend is shy about having skinship in the beginning instead of being enthusiastic,” adding, “But she probably can’t continue being shy even after being in the relationship for a long time. It’s natural to become more honest.”

Moreover, when Joo Won appeared during the show, Sung Shi Kyung said, “He is a dongseng with lots of aegyo and naturally has skinship with his hyungs.” Joo Won agreed with him and explained why he does that, bringing out empathy.

Then Shin Dong Yeop said, “Actually, Joo Won is really smart when it comes to that. He purposely has skinship with hyungs in front of people so that he can naturally do the same with nunas,” causing a round of laughter.

Witch Hunt featuring Joo Won is set to air on October 31.

More detailed information for rapper MC Mong’s comeback album has been released by his agency before he returns to the music scene.

The album “Miss Me or Diss Me” has 13 tracks, many of which are focused on the theme of longing, MC Mong’s agency Well Made Yedang Entertainment said yesterday. The title track “Did You Miss Me” also contains sentiments of longing.

The 35-year-old’s agency said all of the songs were written by the rapper and they deal with MC Mong’s personal life over the five years since he left the music scene.

The full lineup of singers who collaborated with MC Mong on his sixth album was also revealed.

The singers include Ailee, Hyolyn of Sistar, Minah of Girl’s Day, Bumkey and Baek Ji-young.

Although “Did You Miss Me?” is the title track, the agency said music videos have been recorded for some of the other tracks that have the potential to become hits.

MC Mong, who was beloved for his humor and down-to-earth personality, has led a prolific career both in music and on variety TV shows. But his career was abruptly cut short five years ago after he was involved in a legal battle because he allegedly tried to evade his military duty by having some of his teeth removed.

MC Mong was later cleared of the accusations, but it took him five years to return because of the sensitivity of trying to dodge military duties. Some celebrities who have tried to avoid the military never returned to their previous fame because of sour public opinion, such as singer Steve Yoo, or Yoo Seung-jun.

MC Mong’s new album will go on sale at midnight on Nov. 3.

Good news for fans of the “snail couple”: actor Jang Hyuk and actress Jang Na-ra will reunite for a single-episode MBC drama on Nov. 9.

The special short drama, “Old Good-bye,” is about a boxer named Su-hyuk whose wife has died. But he travels into the past and re-encounters his wife. In the drama, Na-ra is expected to broaden her acting scope as she plays a character from when she is a teenager to when she reaches her 30s.

The drama was produced by Kim Hee-won, who also co-produced the actors’ previous drama “Fated to Love You,” which ended in September.

The Jang couple earned the nickname “snail couple” in that drama because Na-ra’s character was called a snail in the series for her slow but determined spirit.

“Old Good-bye” will air at 12:15 a.m. on Nov. 9.

Actress Han Ji-min will reunite with actor Hyun Bin in the upcoming romantic comedy-drama series “Hyde, Jekyll and Me,” which will start airing in January.

The two paired up in the period film “The Fatal Encounter” earlier this year.

In the rom-com drama, Han will play Jang Ha-na, the team leader of a circus group working for a theme park called “Wonder Land.”

She opposes Ku Seo-jin (played by Hyun), the owner of the theme park, as he tries to scrap the circus show. Ku has everything from fame to fortune but distances himself from society after dealing with a tragic accident.

Jang eventually falls in love with Ku, who has two drastically different sides to his personality, just like Jekyll and Hyde.

The drama series is an adaptation of a popular webtoon of the same name.

It will be the 32-year-old actress’s first drama series in two and a half years after she filmed “Rooftop Prince” (2012).

The new drama series will be directed by Cho Young-kwang from “Queen of Ambition” (2013) and written by Kim Ji-wun from “Cheongdam-dong Alice” (2013).

Moses Chan Ho two nights ago with Susan Shaw Yam Yam and director Amos Why (Wong Ho Yin) attended the film DOT 2 DOT (DIM DUI DIM) premiere. Chan Ho said that in the film he had zero intimate scene with the lead actress. Although this was a romance, only he after the shoot felt like he did not even dating. It was rather suitable for him.

Speaking of Aimee Chan Yan Mei revealing that their next child will still be a boy, Chan Ho who stated that he wanted a daughter said, "Next one will probably be a girl, the chances are great! Now at this age the more children the better, it is a blessing from the Lord. Having a soccer team would be the best!" he continued to say that they would have as many children as Heaven would bless them with, because this joy was the happiest in the world. Was Aimee willing to have an entire soccer team? Chan Ho laughed. "She is OK, this has always been our plan. We aren't deliberately trying for a daughter, we both really like children." He said that after a few more children they would have to move to a bigger home. Chan Ho agreed that he definitely would, but he was certain that his son Aiden would be even happier after having a young brother since he would have company in sports.

Director Dante Lam Chiu Yin's film TO THE FORE (POR FUNG) went to the western Inner Mongolia and one of the four great deserts of China, the Tengger Desert. Four leads Eddie Peng Yu-Yen, Shawn Dou Xiao, Choi Si-Won and Carlos Chan Ka Lok were excited about being able to ride their bicycles on the desert highway; yet the almost daily temperature difference between zero to 30 degrees Celsius made them suffer a lot. Thus as soon as they returned to Shanghai they celebrated!

Peng Yu-Yen two years ago worked on a costume series on the Tengger Desert, thus he was very familiar with the location. The experience however was different. He said, "Before I was in a battle in heavy armor in the summer heat, this time I had flimsy bicycle uniform on the highway in the cold autumn. The longer I rode the colder I got, the contrast truly was too strong." Dou Xiao last year almost spent a year in Inner Mongolia for work, so he understood the horror of the northern desert very well. Choi Si-Won arrived two days later than the rest of the cast due to his concert, as soon as he arrived he complained to the director and other actors, "I really miss Kaohsiung and Kenting! The sunshine of Tainan was very comfortable!"

The strong ultra violet ray of the desert left many on the ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
