The Taiwanese artiste who was diagnosed with leukemia was spotted at the cinema with his two children yesterday
Frankie Gao Ling Feng appeared in public for the first time after he stopped receiving chemotherapy at the hospital last month.
The Taiwanese veteran artiste was diagnosed with leukemia last year and had been hospitalised to undergo chemotherapy until Feb 1 this year, when he decided to discharge from the hospital.
He had been staying out of the public eye since then, until he was spotted at the cinema with his children yesterday afternoon.
After alighting from their car, Frankie's daughter helped him to adjust his clothes while his son leaned on his shoulder. They then proceeded to the cinema to watch a movie, and Frankie looked energetic that day, showing no signs of illness.
When asked if he was worried that there are a lot of germs outside that could affect his condition, Frankie jokingly replied, 'That's why I'm covering my mouth with two masks!'
Frankie further revealed that he has been relying on anit-oxidant food to strengthen his immune system. He also felt that he has been recovering faster ever since he moved back to his home from the hospital to recuperate. However, he has not returned to the hospital for his medical checkup yet.
'My daughter would accompany me to watch a movie every week, and I feel very happy and staying happy helps me to recover better. Life is like a gamble, it's either you choose to stay at home or stay in the hospital for chemotherapy sessions. But I chose to stay at home.'
Recalling the painful experiences of chemotherapy, Frankie said that almost all of his hair has dropped ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
The Singaporean singer clarified that she does not invest in stock markets and properties
Stefanie Sun dismissed rumours of her high earnings from the stock market and property investments in Singapore and overseas.
According to the Taiwan media, the local singer reportedly earned up to NT$30 billion (approximately S$125 million) from property and stock market investments.
It was said that Stefanie started buying shares of big companies like Apple and Facebook and investing in properties in America five year ago, after seeking advice from her sister and her husband Nadim Van Der Ros.
However, Stefanie clarified through her manager yesterday, 'That's too exaggerated! I don't take on much work now, so I'm not as rich as what others imagine'.
Dismissing claims from reports that said she invested in overseas properties, Stefanie said that she only owns three properties in Singapore currently.
In other related news, netizens claimed that Stefanie currently weights 60kg after a photo which showed a less slender Stefanie dining in a restaurant in Singapore surfaced recently.
Responding to claims of her weight gain, Stefanie laughed and said, 'Everyone likes to think that I am enjoying good fortune. I don't think I look [like I weigh] 60kg in that photo!'

Taiwanese artiste Ming Dao's driving license was misused as a loan guarantor by his brother, with debts of up to NT$6.5 million (approximately S$270000) chalked up now.
According to the Taiwan media, the debtor of Ming Dao's brother revealed that the latter took his brother's driving license and the whole family's resident cards and cited them as his guarantors for a NT$4 million (about S$160,000) loan, without his family's knowledge.
He also promised the debtor that his brother Ming Dao would definitely help him clear the debts as soon as he is discharged from the army, if he cannot settle the debt himself.
However, Ming Dao's brother started to avoid the debtor, and even called the police when the debtor went to his house to look for him. An arcade owner also claimed that Ming Dao's brother borrowed money from him a few times and has yet to return him the money.

The Taiwanese artiste claimed to have lost contact with Tiffany Tang, hinting at the end of their two-year relationship
A new wave of rumours recently hinted at the end of Roy Qiu and Tiffany Tang's two-year-long romance after photos of the Taiwanese artiste with his new love interest Lee Yu Fen was made public. Yu Fen was seen visiting Roy at his Shenzhen film set, sparking off dating speculations between the pair.
Roy later denied the rumours and claimed that he has not been keeping contact with his girlfriend Tiffany for seven months, implying that they have called it quits. Problems started surfacing in the couple's relationship three months ago due to their busy work schedule that keeps them apart.
The blame game continues as a person claiming to be Tiffany's assistant revealed on her microblog, a photo of the couple in October last year, scolding Roy for hurting Tiffany.
She said: 'You are lying! Haven't seen her (Tiffany) for seven months? Then who was the one who specially flew to Taiwan to pick a birthday cake for you and celebrate your birthday?'
'Who's the one who's afraid of admitting the relationship because he is afraid of losing fans? To what extent are you intending to hurt her? You don't dare to take responsibility for what you have done, you are not a man!' She added angrily. The photo shows the couple celebrating Roy's 31st birthday at home last year.
Roy responded to her comments on his microblog yesterday afternoon and wrote: 'Love is not a performance. Forgive me for not being able to openly declare the relationship. Even if you have forgotten those wonderful memories, I still believe that they existed. I did ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

KEELUNG CITY: Taiwan singer Show Luo has a rather odd, porky problem.
The popular singer has recently come under fire from his neighbours over the pet pig he houses on the rooftop of his apartment building in Keelung City, reported Taiwan media.
They said that the pig, which reportedly weighs some 100kg, has damaged the roof due to its weight, and made it leak.
His neighbours also complained about the stench created by the pig's dung and questioned why Luo should be allowed to monopolise the rooftop area.
Responding to the complaints, Luo's manager expressed that Luo does his best to keep the area clean.
Luo's manager added that the star would move the pig to an animal shelter he has commissioned, once it is completed later this year.

The Chinese actress reportedly reduced her current workload to try for a son and spend more time with family
After spending close to a year working behind-the-scenes for her directorial debut, Vicki Zhao recently promised to spend more time with her loved ones.
Besides acting in the Chinese romantic comedy film, Love, Vicki spent most of the time preparing for her directorial debut movie, Our Eventually Lost Youth since March 2012.
Although Vicki and her family of three were photographed enjoying carefree moments in France last year-end, You Long was allegedly unhappy with his wife for prioritising her career over family, and they even had a heated argument over this matter.
Vicki's directorial debut film is now in its post-production stage and near completion. An insider revealed that Vicki has "finally understood the importance of family after being a director herself" and has promised to "spend more time with her two-year-old daughter".
The actress-director has reportedly reduced her current job assignments, only taking up photo shoots and modelling projects, which was seen as an attempt to mend the relationship with her husband. Vicki is also rumoured to be maintaining her health condition in order to try for a second child, preferably a son.
The 36-year-old gradually stayed out of the limelight since her marriage to Chinese property mogul, Huang You Long in 2008 and only made a comeback after the birth of their daughter in April 2010.

Taiwanese actor Yao Yuan Hao revealed that his relationship with girlfriend Cyndi Wang is stable and he does not mind acting with ex-girlfriend Sonia Sui in the future.
Following his high-profiled separation from ex-girlfriend Sonia in May last year, Yuan Hao and Taiwanese singer-actor Cyndi Wang's rekindled romance made headlines in November. As Cyndi was believed to be the third party in Sonia and Yuan Hao's relationship, the pair has been criticised for failing to spare a thought for Sonia's feelings, and showing off their bliss and dating openly.
Attending the private screening for his upcoming drama The Red Riding Hood and The Small Wolf yesterday, Yuan Hao told reporters that he had insomnia the night before because he was too nervous.
After a long break from the acting scene, Yuan Hao confessed that he was worried the audience would have forgot about him.
As Yuan Hao's character in his new show is said to be a coward, the actor admitted yesterday that he thinks he is also a 'coward' in reality.
When asked if his remark was made with reference to his actions towards Sonia, Yuan Hao claimed that he was joking and revealed that his relationship with Cyndi is at a stable stage.
He also said that he would not restrict Cyndi from visiting him during filming and does not mind co-acting with her if there is a chance in the future.
When reporters asked if this applies to his ex-girlfriend Sonia, an awkward Yuan Hao replied that he is open to the idea of working with her in the future ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
