Hong Kong actress Ada Choi recently announced her withdrawal from her children apparel brand, Motion Picture Kidswear.

 

According to Mingpao News, the actress shared the news on her Weibo, saying, "A year ago, I invested in the company with much delight, but now I have decided to withdraw my investment."

 

Though she did not reveal the reason behind her withdrawal, Ada said that she is still thankful for the opportunity to learn a thing or two about business.

 

"I will continue to work hard and prepare for the future. Thank you to all supporters!" she added.

 

The news was a surprise to many, as Ada had worked hard promoting the store, and had once stated that she would like to make the business a listed company in the future.

 "I want a filial and selfless wife," said Bosco Wong, when asked about the woman of his dream in an interview with Oriental Daily News recently.

 

The actor, whose eight-year romance with Myolie Wu ended two years ago, and new relationship with model Vanessa Yeung ended after only a short while, stated that his ideal wife would be Nancy Wu's character in "The Ultimate Addiction".

 

"She has no need to cook since I cook all the time anyway, but every successful man would want someone who can help him take care of the business as well as the household, a selfless person who is not afraid to make sacrifices in order to resolve one's issues," said Bosco.

 

The actor admitted that such a wife is hard to find, though added that he has not set any time frame on when he should get married.

 

"I will always put my family and friends first, and right now, my career is the most important, as I have to provide for my family. Thus, romance has always been the lowest priority in my book," Bosco admitted.

 

However, Bosco assured that he will find a way to balance his career and love once he has found the right woman.

 Rumour has it that the recently engaged TVB couple, Wong Cho Lam and Leanne Li, will be holding their wedding in Disneyland in Lantau Island.

 

According to Oriental Daily News, following Eric Tsang's disclosure that the couple may get married on Valentine's Day, a new rumour has emerged saying that they will be holding a 100-table banquet at the Hong Kong Disneyland.

 

The venue is said to be especially memorable to the couple, as it was the location of their very first date.

 

Sources also claimed that both Wong and Leanne love the Disney characters so much that the comedy actor even held his birthday party last year and filmed several scenes for "Come On, Cousin!" at the theme park.

 

When asked to confirm the rumours, the happy soon-to-be wed star only replied, "I will announce the details myself later."

 

The couple, who has been dating for five years, recently got engaged when Wong popped the question in front of the audience and viewers at the TVB Anniversary Gala.

 

Meanwhile, Leanne recently denied rumours that she knew about the proposal before it was made, saying that she had no clue whatsoever.

Hong Kong singer GEM Tang has addressed the recent controversy regarding her supposed diva behaviour while dealing with the media.

 

As reported on Sina News, the singer was previously slammed for being an arrogant diva, after her manager Cheung Tan refused to entertain the print media's wishes of interviewing the singer in a separate meeting from the digital media outlets.

 

Cheung stressed that GEM will only conduct one round of interviews and even threatened to cancel the press conference if the members of the media refused to abide by the rules.

 

However, the manager started singing in a different tune when reporters began to leave the venue, saying that GEM has eventually decided to do a separate interview.

 

The manager's attitude reflected badly on the singer, with many saying that Cheung Tan's behaviour mirrored GEM's own arrogance.

 

However, while speaking to the media recently, the singer apologised for the incident, saying that she was unaware of the issue.

 

"I am only a performing artiste, and have no clue about administrative matters. But I hope that there is a mutual understanding among everybody," said GEM.

 

She also clarified that the team had just recently added some new members and that they will ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Actually Wai Jai was particularly in love with Indian food, especially curry and Indian cuisine filled with spices. This time was not his first time in India, only earlier he visited India privately. As for Goa, he described it as India's sunny beach that was very relaxing.

As for guests of the focus nation, Wai Jai and Zhang Ziyi were invited to attend the film festival opening ceremony on the 20th and participated in a special lighting ceremony.

Ram Chiang and Rita Carpio attended a Christmas event, which was a small concert, attracting over a hundred passersby. Ram and Rita sang 《相逢何必曾相識》 at a mall for the first time; the passersby there sang along.

Ram frankly said that, singing this song again, the feeling is very profound, and it also made Rita recall many things in the past. When asked whether they would hold a concert, they both said that they were slightly afraid to. Rita laughingly said that she held a small concert before; back then, she felt very nervous. If she were to collaborate with Ram, it would be held at the Coliseum, and the pressure would be even greater. Ram said that holding a show in Hong Kong is a lot of pressure, laughingly saying that he would consider again after completing stage performances in the US and Canada, and also said that he has been frequently practicing singing recently. When asked whether there were any singers who have requested songs from him, he said, "I will take the initiative to write for the singers whom I would like to give songs to. In my heart, there are a few candidates, but it hasn't come to fruition, so will not say, or else it would be very awkward".

Ram revealed that there are many money-making shows inviting the two of them to attend, but had to reject a lot because he has to go to Mainland at the end of the month to film a series. Everything cannot be about making money...must have principles.
