Earlier working with Keung Ho Man and Lau Ho Lung on Tai Mo Shan, Babyjohn also received a surprise. He said, "As I was at make up, the director really scared me. He walked over to me with a cool look on his face and told me to go over. I thought I did something wrong. As soon as I walked out of the tent, Si Hing began singing the birthday song. I was very surprised! Everyone were very thoughtful. This was the first time I spent my birthday at work in my career, I was very happy. I was even at the peak of Tai Mo Shan, it was more than special."

Kwan Yu that day was impersonated G-Dragon with his usual hat and medical mask look to celebrate with the birthday boy. She wished that Babyjohn would have more female suitors. Being married he said, "No way."

Earlier last month, G.E.M. Tang had revealed that her wax figure would be added into the Madame Tussauds Hong Kong Museum, and finally, her wax figure has been revealed. G.E.M. appeared at the Madame Tussauds Hong Kong Museum to host the unveiling ceremony for her wax figure. G.E.M. wore the same outfit as her wax figure, which was a silver dancing outfit that revealed her back, that she wore during her first world tour. The wax figure is a very good imitation of her, even G.E.M. laughed saying it looks like her long-lost twin sister. Facing her own wax figure, she expressed her disbelief: "I haven't seen myself before. When I look in the mirror, the reflection is reversed." She revealed she got hurt in a relationship three years ago, and went to New York to get some distraction. At the time, she went to the wax museum there, and all the visitors there were either in pairs or in groups, but she had to take selfies with the figures by herself. Who knew that she would have her own wax figure now?

There were criticisms, saying that G.E.M. is not at the level to have her wax figure in the museum yet. G.E.M. expressed that she is not unhappy because of this, instead, she is very honoured to be able to join this big family. Although there were many voices this year, no matter if they were support or criticism, she is very thankful and gained a lot. As for many rude photos of people touching the wax figure inappropriately surfacing online, G.E.M. appeared to be quite surprised: "Really that savage? ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The Rose Chan Ka Wun two nights ago booked a screening of her film I SELL LOVE (FAN MAI OI) for her clients. The team presented her with an "actress with the most future award". Ka Wun said, although the award was not official, to her it was particularly meaningful. She said, "The film has been in release for a week, the box office has been decent so I have attended audience appreciation events everywhere. Many people said that my performance was daring in the film. Th audience also were very tolerant of people with past experience. Everyone also understood that the value that the film talked about."

Ka Wun pointed out, the film was a domestic production, a Hong Kong independent film. She hoped that more Hong Kong viewers would support it. As for longing for a film award, she said, "This film of ours has participated in different film festivals, but I haven't had the chance to participate in each one. I hope the film will have a chance to participate in the Hong Kong Film award. I will be happy with a nomination."

Playing an unwed mother in the film, Adrian Wong Chi Ching said that she and Ka Wun were quite close. She gave her a present on her birthday. Chi Ching said, "We want to set up a picnic date. Ka Wun is two years younger than me, but I won't treat her like a little sister because she got into the business before I did. I have a lot that I could ask her about."

Chi Ching said that they often ran into each ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Cecilia Cheung's camp has recently dismissed rumours pertaining to her case against Haisong Group that accused her of breaching her contract.


Previously, the company has filed a lawsuit against Cecilia and her agency AEG on the basis of contract fraud, saying that they failed to fulfil their side of the contract, which calls for Cecilia's participation on the reality programme, "Muse Dress".


The actress reportedly has already been paid RMB2 million (approximately USD326,155) for her participation before refusing to do so.


However, Cecilia has recently denied allegations that she has received the payment from the company, and that the reports of such doing was misleading and affecting her personal reputation.


Cecilia Cheung's camp stated that they will maintain their stance and will defend their legitimate rights and interests through legal means.


Previously, AEG's president Yu Yuk Hing denied the allegation made by Haisong Group, and said that it was the latter that breached the contract first, which led to their withdrawal.
