He said he took the chance to lose weight and reduce the portion by 40% due to the filming of the new series, Trendsetter (潮流教主). When asked if Aimee Chan felt heart pain that he lost weight, Moses said: "She told me to lose weight for a long time and no time due to taking care of my sons earlier."

Actor and TV host Bob Lam (林盛斌), is always working hard to earn money and from time to time, he would upload photos on the internet of himself looking exhausted. On 04 July, Bob went for a sleep apnea checkup and uploaded a photo of himself with a lot tape on his face, indeed being overly exaggerated! Bob left a message saying: "Doctor, what do you want? Only a sleep apnea checkup, why so serious? In fact, do you have something hiding from me. Just tell me, I'm mentally prepared!" Once the post was uploaded, good friend Raymond Cho (曹永廉), jokingly said he looks like he is being researched more than getting treated: "Finally someone is doing a research on you. In fact, in this world, there is no one who is handsome, intelligent and eloquent. Besides me, there is also you".

When asked if she intended to invite Xia Wei into 'Hu Shuo Ba Dao 胡說八道' group, Nancy said: "People said we will get to know guys!" But Xia Wei replied she had Nancy and they will upload photo of themselves on the Internet at times.

Will take the opportunity to enjoy sunshine

When mentioned that Nancy, Joel Chan (陳山聰) and other hunks enjoyed sunshine together earlier, Nancy explained she was busy with filming Ghost of Relatively (鬼同你OT) series followed by Eunuchs leave the Palace series and it was a rare opportunity for relaxation. However, she will be busy with promotion campaign of Ghost of Relatively series and hopes to have some time for vacation and personal time.

The Emperor Motion Picture TO THE FORE (POR RUNG)'s director Dante Lam Chiu Yin and the film's new comer Kevin Chu Kam Yin yesterday put on cycling gears and rode in Sham Tseng. Director Lam said, "This film received good reviews from the Mainland film authority. They said that the film had their blood boiling. They felt that it started a sports film trend. With such a good film, the promotional strategy had to be done better so it wouldn't be wasted. I too want to make more sports movies. The next one may be about swimming."

Chu Kam Yin was a swimmer before getting into the business. He said, "I would gladly participate in the director's new film. (Aren't you afraid of him being a demon director?) When I was an athlete it was much worse, I trained for three to four hours. When I make movies it's for just three to four minutes!"

The Wong Jing produced new film GIRL OF THE BIG HOUSE (BO BUI DONG GA) yesterday held a production start ceremony in Yuen Long. Attending actors included Francis Ng Chun Yu, Miriam Yeung Chin Wa, Angela Wang Shiling, Yuen Qiu, Lo Fun and Jim Chim Shui Man. Although Angela's parents Wang Yuelun and Li Xiang were present, they declined to pose for photos with their daughter. Instead Angela's onscreen father Chun Yu not only sang to her but also bent down to accommodate to her height. He even could not help but bite her chubby arm!

Chun Yu, Chin Wa and Angela were described as "mischievous children", which Chun Yu could not deny fast enough. He said that when he was little he often performed charity like visiting seniors at nursing home. Playing Angela's mother, Chin Wa has a son of her own. This time was perfect for her to experience communicating with a daughter. They were just like friends and she could dress her up like a princess.

** Translator's Note: In my translation, I tried to keep the writer's sarcastic tone as much as possible, since the sarcasm is really what makes this article an interesting, witty read.  However, if possible, I recommend reading this article as it was originally written (in Cantonese) to get the full effect.**

In the past few decades, Hong Kong’s biggest (and only) TV station has come out with its fair share of investigative series (推理劇). [TN: for the purposes of this article, I will use the word ‘investigative series’ to describe 推理劇  however those who prefer ‘detective series’ or ‘mystery series’, feel free to use those terms instead].   These types of series generally have an abundant, complicated storyline and are almost guaranteed to pull in good ratings – indeed, these series had their glory days for a period of time.  However, as we all know, the traditional path for HK’s scriptwriters is to get ‘inspiration’ for their stories from American, Japanese, and Korean investigative series as well as novels.  This is why, in many of HK’s TV series, we often see familiar story concepts such as those found in the works of [Japanese novelist] Jiro Akagawa (赤川次郎), manga series Case Closed (aka Detective Conan), American series such as NYPD Blue and CSI, etc.  Now of course, the scriptwriters can’t copy those works verbatim, so they will always mix in some of their own ‘ideas’ to the story so as to make it their own – and with that, the ‘essential characteristics’ of HK television series was born.
