image.jpg image.jpg     Tavia Yeung, Chin Siu Ho, Jason Chan, Carat Cheung, etc. attended a promotional function for TVB's upcoming drama "Wudang Rules" in Taipo. When Tavia was interviewed, she expressed that she was quite worried filming this drama due to her old hip injury: "In the beginning, I was worried that doing Taichi would affect my hip, but the producer said Taichi can help strengthen the body, plus there aren't a lot of action scenes. Thank goodness I had no injuries in the end." Asked if she taught Him Law some Taichi? She replied: "I don't dare teach anyway. I just know the poses, not really how to do it. Before, I wanted to show my mom a clip and teach her how to do Taichi, but scared that the poses are inaccurate and would make her get hurt!" 

Jason Chan revealed that he has a love triangle with Tavia Yeung and Carat Cheung in the drama. Thinking back to his bed scene with Tavia, it was embarrassing and rushed: "Originally, we were to roll around the bed together, but because I had to rush to another job, we couldn't plan the actions. In the end, we just hugged on the bed, topless, but didn't have any kiss scenes." He exposed that he did report to his girlfriend, Sarah Song before and after filming. In fact, he is more scared that Tavia's boyfriend, Him Law will be jealous. He laughed: "A little scared. He's so big, but should be okay. It was the director's request!"

The actual date and details are still unrevealed. 

Angelababy, who is 26 years old this year, and 37 year old Huang Xiao Ming have been dating for 5 years. There have been many rumours that the two would get married this year. Yesterday, there was finally some news about Baby's "wedding date". On Facebook, someone labeled "Angelababy楊穎" uploaded a photo of Baby and Huang Xiao Ming in front of flowers, and wrote the caption "From now onwards, I belong to you. As long as you are here, no matter what words and gossip, I don't care." 

Netizen impersonated Baby 

The post attracted a lot of attention from fans, asking Baby whether she already got married in low-profile and became "Mrs. Huang". When MingPao contacted Baby's management company, the representative clarified that Baby's official Facebook did not post anything of the sort.

Hong Kong government challenges ruling on 'unlawful' rejection of HKTV licensing

hktv-nt-net.jpg?itok=Bo50I42J

 

The Executive Council launched an appeal yesterday against a High Court decision that ruled it was unlawful of Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying and his cabinet to deny a free-to-air licence to maverick investor Ricky Wong Wai-kay's Hong Kong Television Network in 2013.

 

That court order, handed down last month, sent HKTV's application back to Exco for reconsideration.

 

If the government did not want to proceed with the review yet, it should apply separately for a deferment as the appeal itself was not an excuse for delaying the execution of a court order, lawmaker and barrister Ronny Tong Ka-wah SC said.

 

"If [Exco] respects the court ruling, it should make an application to the High Court, asking for respite in execution," Tong said.

 

The council decided on its move after considering legal advice and served a notice of appeal to the broadcaster yesterday, the Commerce and Economic Development Bureau said. The listed HKTV acknowledged receipt of the notice and said it was seeking legal advice, according to a document filed with the stock exchange.

 

On April 24, Mr Justice Thomas Au Hing-cheung wrote in his judgment that when the government rejected HKTV's application, it failed to follow a 1998 pro-competition policy stipulating the number of free-television licences should not be limited.

 

Au noted Exco opened up the market by adopting a "gradual and orderly approach", awarding licences to only PCCW's Hong Kong Television Entertainment and iCable's Fantastic Television in October 2013.

 

Based on that premise, he said, the government had ranked the three applicants instead of assessing their individual merits.

 

The official explanation then was that the city might not be able to sustain three new players alongside TVB and ATV.

 

The judge wrote: "I agree that HKTV had a legitimate expectation that its licence ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg     Ali Lee (李佳芯) and Tony Hung (洪永城) were filming location shooting for new series, Good Morning, Boss (波士早晨) in Sai Kung (西貢) Town. In the series, Ali acted as a secretary and frequently tortured by her boss, Tony who complained he was bullied in the reality. Ali then exposed he was a narcissist: "At most, I said he followed the camera all day and always showed his chok look at the camera."

Ali expressed that Tony had many ideas about kissing scenes but it was not realistic: "There was a scene we needed to answer after the intimate action and some things were unnecessary. It was annoying when he had many funny ideas, while Ben Wong (黃智賢) was more realistic." Tony laughed and said: "Before the filming, I had many filming ideas such as the bed overturned when in the yacht but the director rejected it eventually." He also praised Ali was obedient and will made fun of her at times.

When asked if their flirting will incurred the jealousy of his rumoured girlfriend, Natalie Tong (唐詩詠), Tony replied he was not worried, while Ali supported him: "I assume that is his way of communication and he is very friendly. (Creating rumours?) In fact, there is rumours when filming the series as he had his ways with women."
