Dior Cheng Yi Kin and Chrissie Chau Sau Na appeared on Cable's Film Montage program and talked about the joy and pain of their new film BREAK UP 100 (FUN SAU 100 CHI). Playing a couple already in their first collaboration, they agreed that they were very nervous before. They even said that before the shoot they already admired each other very much. Ekin called Sister Na "sexy goddess" while Sister Na praised Ekin was her "god". She even pointed out that Ekin radiated a heroic aura from the back. "Ekin in A MAN CALLED HERO (JUNG WA YING HUNG) and YOUNG AND DANGEROUS (GOO WAT JAI) truly was too memorable. Every time I only had to look at his back and my mind would be filled with pictures of him fighting bad guys."

This time their new pairing was very fresh. Ekin said that it was completely due to director Lawrence Cheng Tan Shui's daring attempt. Sister Na also admitted that Brother Tan during negotiation talked her into the film. "Brother Tan said that this time he didn't want me to be sexy but to act, so as soon as I heard I was already very tempted. Coincidentally at the time I was already single, he said that he wanted to find a handsome guy to be with me. I happily nodded. He asked me if Cheng Yi Kin would work. I immediately said, 'Yes! Yes! Yes!'" In the film Ekin and Sister Na played a couple that maintained their relationship by breaking up. The story made them think about love.

Actress-singer Vivian Hsu and husband will start working hard for a baby after their wedding celebrations




Taiwanese actress-singer Vivian Hsu and her husband Sean Lee returned to Taiwan to hold a second wedding banquet after a romantic poolside wedding in Bali last month.


The 39-year-old wowed the crowd in a Vera Wang gown, TASAKI Balance pearl necklace and a diamond ring worth approximately S$8,200, S$14,600 and S$47,500 respectively.


Vivian lovingly held her husband’s hands during the interview, which also marked the Singapore-based businessman’s first ever media appearance. Sean appeared nervous as he smiled and complimented his bride, “She is caring, beautiful and sincere.”


Not leaving Sean out, Vivian also showed her appreciation for her husband. “He fills the bathtub for me to bathe, and blows my hair when he’s free!” she said.


She even revealed how they would massage each other, “unlike how they do it in spas.”


“I will kneel on his waist and he will use his elbow on me,” she shared.


The radiant lady also sheepishly admitted to gaining 7kg since February which caused her mother-in-law to suspect that she’s expecting. “She said I was skinny and told me to eat more. My husband loves food so he took me on a food tour around Singapore,” explained Vivian, who had registered her marriage in the city-state in February this year.


Following the ceremony, the couple intend to work hard for a baby. Vivian hopes to bear him a son as Sean already has two daughters from his previous marriage.

The filial daughter-in-law will also live with her in-laws in Singapore, whom she said treat her like their own. Vivian has been ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Filming his TV comeback with TVB's "Lord of Shanghai", movie actor Anthony Wong admits to ad-libbing his lines as he sees fit.


According to Mingpao News, speaking to the media at the promotional event of child psychologist Ho Nim Chee's new book, "Ten Month Relationship", Anthony justified his improvisations by saying that the original dialogues sometimes lack the pizzazz it needed.


"I altered my dialogue so it is more in tune with my character," he said. "While reading it, I can tell that the writers are really young with not much life experiences."


The actor said that though the general idea is there, the writers seemed unable to express it in words.


"It's not a big issue. But actors have to pick up on their own," said the actor.


He denied that it was a bold move for an actor to alter the original script, saying that what he did was only expressing the same points with better presentation.


Anthony also admitted that he is currently enjoying the filming process and working with three-time TV King, Wayne Lai.


"We are working happily," the actor enthused.

"That sexy dance clip, and the baring photos leaked on the internet were not taken by me, nor did I send them to anyone else. That video is self-written, self-directed and self-acted by that person (Sire Ma). It was filmed by her own camera set on a stand! As for why I had this video, is because at that time, I was secretly with that person behind Laura's back. Everytime she came to Shanghai, no matter how late, I still had to go home. Plus, in the daytime, I had to go to work. One time, she said to me, when you're off from work today and come find me at the hotel, can you not go home? I want to give you a surprise. When I got to the hotel, she was already wearing ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
