The film HOSUE OF WOLVES (NGOK YUN GUK) yesterday held its production start ceremony. Attending actors included Francis Ng Chun Yu, Ronald Cheng Chung Kei, Chrissie Chau Sau Na, Ella Koon Yun Na and Babyjohn Choi Hong Yik. Cheng Chung Kei and Ella yesterday appeared in costumes as the outdated village chief and the stained teeth village woman.

Ronald had to play the village chief so he got a darker tan. He even added pads to his shirt and added a high waist belt to look outdated. He admitted that high waist pants and shoulder pads were rather gross. This time he worked with Candy Yu On On for the first time, he did not expect her to be willing to play a village woman. She in the film often called him a jerk and he never expected her to be so funny. In addition Ronald's wife is expectant in February. He said that he will work until the end of November. Because he could not return to Hong Kong in time for the birth of his first daughter and he regretted it, this time he would stop working in advance. He has already prepared to go to the delivery room with his wife, cut the umbilical cord and shoot videos. He even bought a new ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Its actors Josie Ho Chiu Yi, Law Chung Him, Alex Lam Tak Shun and Philip Keung Ho Man attended. Other guests included Wylie Chiu Shek Chi, Melvin Wong Kam Sun and Chiu Nga Chi.

Him Jai was asked about his role. He joked, "Miscellaneous, like a driver, a murderer, a part time boyfriend and others. (Did you have to show off your muscles?) I had a back tattoo, but it was fake. I didn't dare to get a real one." In the film he was sloppy. He joked that the new director was looking for a breakthrough. He himself was vain but this time he was happy that he did not have to perform with makeup or shave. Everyday he could save two hours to sleep in. As for intimate scenes, he admitted that he had a kiss scene with Taiwan actress Peggy Tseng Pei-Yu. The bed scene was briefly glanced over. Did he have to give his girlfriend Tavia Yeung Yi any advanced warning? He said, "I never need to, actors always have this type of scenes. We have to be mentally prepared."

Karena Ng had her 21st birthday the day before yesterday. Boyfriend, Raymond Lam spent approximately 60,000 HKD to hold a birthday party for her at a 5 star hotel restaurant, The Krug Room (Another article quotes 100,000 HKD spent). The tables were filled with desserts made to look like Karena's favourite jewelry and high heels, and there was even a huge birthday cake in the theme of "Princess' castle". On top of the cake stood a "Princess Karena", with a pig and a dog by the mini castle. 

Earlier, Raymond Lam had exposed that he had put a lot of thought into his girlfriend's 21st birthday. Because she is too smart, he did not know how to create an unforgettable birthday for her. In the end, he found a restaurant in the five star hotel Mandarin Oriental, and booked the whole restaurant for the party. The restaurant's privacy level is very high, the head chef is a French chef and only serves 12 guests. So Raymond secretly contacted a group of Karena's good friends to attend. 

Yesterday, Karena uploaded a group photo with Raymond Lam and 10 other friends from the party, and 3 short clips. In the group photo, Raymond Lam held tightly onto Karena's hand, incredibly sweet. Karena BB was also very touched by the "Princess' Castle" cake. Although there was only a "princess" on the centre of the cake with no "Prince Chok" Raymond Lam, but he was still creative and instead, transformed into "Prince Pig" on the cake (Raymond's nickname is L.Pig), protecting Princess Karena with her dog, Oreo.

She happily announced: "Yes, it's a boy. I have two boys. The two brothers will be best friends, because their ages are so close, just by one year and two months." She expressed that her elder son is quite independent, has a personality of a big brother, so she is not really scared that he will be jealous. She will help the little brother prepare a present to give to his older brother.

Asked if they have plans to have a girl? Aimee laughed: "Take it slowly, I want to work a bit first. I want to be a working mum, balance family and work and see if we can handle two kids. (Currently working hard to earn milk powder money?) Modern day mothers are like this, don't have to stay home even if we're pregnant. I still have a lot of passion and fire for work." She also expressed that she can now start to think of a name for the baby. She and her husband will think of an English name first.

Regarding the rumours of his marriage with 29 year old wife, Shi Yang Zi, Lawrence Ng, who is 50 years old this year, recently admitted through Weibo that there are indeed some problems between the couple, they are currently working to solve it. The family of three even went to a vacation on Malaysia after that, in attempt to have a deeper talk. Yesterday night, Lawrence revealed on a phone interview that he and his wife had actually been living separate for 3-4 years already. As for what the problem is between the couple?

The problem arose between the two of us, cannot blame it on one side only." He honestly stated that recent reports on his wife always in contact with the opposite sex is very unfair to her: "The photos of her with the men, are all taken from her Weibo.
