The day before, Malaysia Airlines MH17 crashed into Ukraine, somewhere close to the frontier of Russia. Although there were two accidents in four months with Malaysia Airlines, loving couple, Edwin Siu and Priscilla Wong were not afraid at all. A few days before, the two secretly flew to Malaysia for a sweet trip together. Yesterday, they were spotted taking Malaysia Airlines returning to Hong Kong; they did not choose to take other airlines because of the aviation accident. Last night, reporters asked whether they were scared of the safety taking Malaysia Airlines, Edwin responded through WhatsApp: "Being with her, there is nothing to be scared of..."

Edwin Siu, 37 years old this year, was revealed to have broken up with Gigi Ho and fallen in love with 32 year-old "otaku goddess", Priscilla Wong. Last month, the media spotted the two holding hands on the beach, admiring the sunset at Clearwater Bay, very romantic indeed. Actually, Edwin's romancing tactics did not end there. The other day, the two took the chance after finishing all their jobs on hand, and took a vacation to Malaysia. This time is also the first time the couple went travelling together. 

Overcame obstacles; finally went on vacation

Previously, there were reports saying that Priscilla wanted to go to Okinawa, but Edwin wanted to go to Bali. Although in the end, Priscilla was willing to listen to Edwin (and go to Bali), but after their vacation plans were exposed, the executives of their company did not want the two's news to be hyped up, so they demanded the two to cancel their plans.

To honour her life's success and her contribution to society, a statue of Anita Mui, was finally established on the Avenue of Stars by Victoria Harbour. Although the Typhoon No.3 signal was up yesterday, during the unveiling of the statue, the sky finally stopped raining. When the song "Hug the Ones you Have Tightly" started playing during the unveiling, Mother Mui cried emotional tears. 

Yesterday, Anita Mui's statue was officially unveiled on the Avenue of Stars. Although the Typhoon No.3 signal was up at the time, but this day, 32 years ago was also the day that Anita won the first place of "New Talent Singing Awards" so no wind or rain could stop the standing of "Hong Kong's daughter - Anita Mui" statue on such a special day. Those who attended the unveiling ceremony included, Anita Mui's mother, Tam Mei Kam, her twin brother, Mui Kai Ming, her students, Remus Choi, Edmond So, Ng See Yuen, William Hu, etc. At the moment of the unveiling, even God created a beautiful moment and let the rain stop. 

Ah Mui's statue was planned by Mui Nation for three years. They were able to invite renowned sculptor, Cho Chung Yun to create the statue. Ah Mui's statue was hidden with a red cloth, with iron horses surrounding it. The venue was filled with 200 fans, with tourists spectating. However, because this caused passageways to be blocked, the scene was very messy and crowded. The police had to arrive to keep everything in order. There was a small incident in the middle of the function, as someone lifted the red cloth before the moment of ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Barely a day after Zhou Xun had a public wedding with American actor Archie Kao, the actress' 'ex-lover' has stepped up to challenge her husband.

The actress wedded Archie the night before at the 'One Night' charity gala in Hangzhou, much to the envy of everyone who was present.

Yesterday, a Chinese newspaper printed an advertisement with the headline: 'Archie Kao, do you dare to love Zhou Xun like I do!' Speculations immediately arose that the author, a man named 'Yuan Xiao Ou', was Zhou Xun's ex-lover.

The body copy read: 'Don't let her go on a diet; she has to gain another 2kg before she can be healthy. Don't let her get drunk; if she's drunk, then hug her and don't let go'¦'

'[I will] turn my ten years of love into blessings. If she's fine, I will be her spare tyre for life,' the author continued, and signed off as 'Her prematurely menopausal boyfriend, Yuan Xiao Ou'.

Thankfully, it was quickly revealed that 'Yuan Xiao Ou' is actually the name of the male lead in Zhou Xun's new movie, Wo De Zao Geng Nan You, which will be airing in October, and the notice is just an advertising gimmick .

Taiwanese singer David Tao, 45 and girlfriend Penny will tie the knot this year. The singer's mother was spotted at a fabric market and is rumoured to be making David's outfit for the marriage.

Reporters paid a visit to Dongshun Hardware store that 28-year-old Penny's father owns, where he initially denied their father-daughter relationship in a bid to protect her privacy. However, he eventually relented when asked about the marriage and said, 'I don't know, I have to go for a meeting.'

Penny's father remained mysterious when probed if his daughter was pregnant, but indicated the couple was already engaged. He also revealed their honeymoon plans in an island resort.

The soon-to-be father-in-law was full of praises for David and gave him 'full marks' after he found out the 45-year-old is a well-known celebrity. He was quick to defend the singer when rumours of David's past marriages were mentioned.

As to whether the two who have been dating for over two years were living together, he responded, 'They go to each other's' houses,' unintentionally revealing their partial-cohabitation.

Rumour has it that Taiwanese actress Ariel Lin and her businessman boyfriend Charles Lin are planning to tie the knot on Christmas Eve this year. According to media reports, the lovebirds are in the midst of planning their wedding, which will allegedly be held at The Ambassador Hotel in Taipei.

It is also reported that the couple intends to throw a 50-table banquet that costs over NT$1 million (approximately S$40,000).

Although Ariel and Charles have been acquainted for more than 10 years, they only developed feelings for each other in 2011, when they were the bridesmaid and groomsman at the actress' cousin's wedding.

After Ariel relocated to London for further studies last September, Charles reportedly flew over to visit his girlfriend on numerous occasions. Sources also revealed that he successfully proposed to the It Started with a Kiss star during her birthday vacation in France last October.

When asked on the couple's marriage plans, Ariel's manager claimed that 'it is impossible until the actress completes her course'.

Tony Leung Chiu Wai supported his wife Carina Lau Ka Ling as he went to the Academy of Performing Arts for his wife, Tony Leung Ka Fai and Tse Kwan Ho starred play TONNOCHY. Did Wai Jai want to perform on the stage? He said that he has performed in the play PLAYBOY before so he had a little experience. However he felt that he had to save up enough courage to be able to be on the stage. Thus although it was a lot of fun he would need a lot of time to prepare. Would he attend every show? He said, "As many as she wants me to attend." Wai Jai said that two nights ago Ka Ling performed the premiere and he told her to "enjoy the show". He knew that his wife was working hard. After ten shows she would have to fly to Thailand for a dozen or so days for the movie FROM VEGAS TO MACAU 2 (DOH SING FUNGWON 2). Wai Jai admitted, "We are both actors, I understand that hard work can bring a great sense of success in return." Then she would return to continue the run. Perhaps after the play he would relax with her.

Director Wong Kar Wai and writer Jin Yucheng yesterday attended a Book Fair forum and revealed collaboration plans. "Mr. Jin's writing is great, his subjects are rare. The content is about 60s to 90s Shanghai. I have already bought the rights but I won't make it this year. (Will you make another film in September?) The company will, I will produce. The production isn't set yet." He entered the venue without revealing whether Tony Leung Chiu Wai will star in the new film in September.

Director Ann Hui On Wa said, "My new film THE GOLDEN ERA will participate in the Venice Film Festival in September, lead actress Tang Wei will go. I have congratulated her on her wedding.
