Artiste Maggie Cheung (張可頤) taught culinary lessons at a Secondary School and showed how to make sponge cake to the parents and students. She expressed she had no movies to film currently and busy with managing her work: "It is similar to communication between parents and students. The parents feel it is hard to teach their children while the kids dislike talking about their problems. I will be busy with writing script and filming shows later and get my old colleagues to help."

When asked if she wished to date, Maggie said: "Yes. It is cold lately and I wish to communicate with friends. But I need to show my heart at this age but it is difficult and I guess we will behave like good friends when I manage to find boyfriend later."

Artiste Christine Kuo (苟芸慧) accepted the interview from radio station and when mentioned about she suffered from hypothyroidism which caused her to gain weight but managed to reduce weight lately, she said: "I have been drawing blood and eating medicine all along but the recovery is slow and accidents happened during car racing earlier. I am very worried that I might lose my life and this accident changes my thinking thereafter. I feel we need to let go of many things and live our life to the fullest. I have a list to say thank you to the people during this 2 years and thank you to everybody who remembers me and I need to do something immediately if required. Hence, I used 2 weeks to treat everybody to meal immediately after the accident but forgot to draw blood and eat medicine as a result. The doctor was very scared but said the number was very nice after drawing blood. Earlier, I was scared to eat as everyone said I was fat but start to recover after eating continuously for 2 weeks. It is close to normal now but have to monitor for 6 months."

Afraid of gaining weight even when drinking water

Christine disclosed she did not eat for 10 days in order to reduce weight: "I am afraid of gaining weight when drinking water and felt very unhappy at that time. It does not help even when I do not eat and people will comment whenever outside. I wish to have complete rest at that point and communication is also another problem but still have to meet people. I am learning to speak directly and my feelings now."

The Communications Authority is not in the position to find TVB in breach of the Broadcasting Ordinance, neither in its capacity as a policy adviser nor as an enforcement body, the High Court ruled on Friday.

 

In 2013, the watchdog found Television Broadcasts Ltd violated the ordinance, in that the station had prevented, distorted and substantially restricted competition in the local TV market by adopting certain contracts with their artists and singers.

 

But the station, which was ordered to end the practices and was fined HK$900,000, lodged a judicial review against the watchdog’s decision.

 

Giving his reasons for upholding the review, Court of First Instance Judge Mr Justice Godfrey Lam Wan-ho noted the multiple hats donned by the head of the authority during adjudication.

 

“This process has been said to be administrative and inquisitorial, with the Authority acting successively as the investigator, the prosecutor and the judge,” Lam wrote, before ordering the authority’s decision to be quashed.

 

He ruled the decision to penalise TVB affect its rights and obligations and therefore should be dealt with by an impartial tribunal according to the Bill of Rights.

 

Lam was aware that the authority was a policy-making body with an advisory role, apart from carrying out investigation and deciding on allegations.

 

For example, the authority advised the Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development on legislation and policy relating to telecommunications and broadcasting. It also had close ties to the Chief Executive In Council, advising him on licence applications.

 

But when giving a ruling on whether TVB had breached law, one must looked into the television market, such as what difficulties existed and the effect of TVB’s conduct on competition, he said.

 

“It seems to me plain that there is significant potential overlap between these questions and the considerations that the authority had constantly to take account ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The Stephen Chow Sing Chi produced, directed, and written film MERMAID (MEI YUN YU) will open in February. The film's two leads Show Lo (Law Chi Cheung) and Jelly Lin Yun appeared on the Cable high definition entertainment station program Film Montage with Sing Yeh. Speaking of Sing Yeh choosing Lin Yun out of 120,000 candidates to play the mermaid, she admitted that she had pressure because Sing Yeh was a very serious director. He would personally demonstrate the scene. The first time working with him she had a lot of pressure, but she believed that pressure was motivation.

Why would Sing Yeh choose Lin Yun? He felt that she was an unique girl, with an innocent quality that completely unlike human. She was like a wild animal and was very suitable for this character. Sing Yeh pointed out that now it is very hard to make a movie, the hardest is to come up with a good script. Each time he hoped to add in different creativity, to give the audience something fresh. However the audience was very highly demanding. They have seen even better films, to please them had certain difficulty. When would Sing Yeh return to the screen? He said, "I don't know! It's possible, with the right role I would consider it."

Playing the octopus in the film, Piggy was accused of taking Sing Yeh's favorite character. He joked that only he knew the pain. Everyday he had to get up early for make up. ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Singer Hins Cheung (張敬軒) was hospitalised for pneumonia a few days ago and the company announced his concert, Live in Passion was re-scheduled from 30 January to 27 February as a result. Yesterday morning, his good friends such as Joey Yung (容祖兒) and Raymond Lam (林峯) agreed to help him to attend events and sing on his behalf. Hins said emotionally: "I join EEG almost 4 years and everyone treats me very nice and we resemble a family. Hence, I called Joey immediately when she was setting her hairdo and she agreed to help me without asking much questions." However, I have another event to attend but it was cancelled due to my condition today but Raymond agreed to attend it on my behalf immediately. Where to find such good 'brother' and 'sister'?"

Fever had disappeared

Yesterday morning on the Internet, Hins updated his condition that his fever had disappeared and in a stable condition now: "The nurse who gives me an injection today wishes me Happy Birthday and I feel very touched. Anyway, thank you to her! I am in a stable condition today and my fever had disappeared."
