Adam Cheng: Need to Wait Before Taking Leave; Unknown About Attending Lydia Shum’s Funeral
Lydia Shum passed away and ex-husband Adam Cheng has been filming a TV series. He appeared extremely low-profiled since Lydia’s death. He would avoid questions by reporters. Even though Joyce Cheng has been surrounded by caring people, they are unsatisfied with the thought that a young teenage girl needs to bear the lost of her mother without her father. The support of a father is very important. Yesterday, Florence Su-Fen Chan publicly expressed that she hopes Adam would at least call Joyce and comfort her. Adam has been criticized for not accompanying his daughter’s side. People could not understand why he is caring about Lydia’s death and Joyce. Many netizens are asking: “Adam Cheng, where are you?”
Adam finally appeared at a hotel. Yesterday, “Scoop” broadcasted their hosts chasing Adam for an interview. Adam changed his attitude and somewhat slowed down to accept the interview. Did you call Joyce? Adam expressed that he called his daughter to console her. The reporter mentioned that Joyce would be returning to Canada for Lydia’s funeral and asked if he would be going to Canada to see Lydia for the last time. He said that he needed to see if he could take those days off. He needs to wait for Joyce’s notice about it but he hasn’t heard back yet. Would you be returning to Hong Kong? He said he needed to wait for Joyce’s response. Were you mentioned in Lydia’s obituary? Adam only said: “Oh.” But he didn’t respond to the question.
Adam’s assistant told the reporters that Adam called Joyce immediately when he found out. He needed Joyce to give him a notice about the funeral before he can take asks for those days off.
Yesterday, there were debates about Adam on different forums. Some people believed that Adam was afraid of his current wife (官晶華) so he didn’t appear supportive or care for Joyce. Some people dug into the past and mentioned that he left Lydia and their infant daughter for another woman. But Adam has supporters who understand his situation. They feel that if he returned to Hong Kong, he would be the target of Lydia’s friends. Netizens follow closely of any information about Lydia. Yesterday, the two hosts of “Scoop”, Zac Kao and Derek Lee, made mistakes which was caught and scolded by netizens. Zac accidentally said “Dead Jie” instead of “Fei Jie”. Derek mistakenly said Lydia’s mother name instead when he was talking about Lydia’s funeral arrangement. Netizens went to online to talk about it on forums.
Lydia’s body would return to Vancouver and be buried at Forest Lawn Memorial Park. Hong Kong audience would be able to see Lydia’s funeral and burial. According to sources, TVB’s executive 何麗全 have arrived in Vancouver. He would lead the team to videotape the funeral and burial in Vancouver. The local memorial functions would be taped as well. After editing, it would be broadcasted on March 2, at the Hong Kong Coliseum which would host the memorial services. Lydia’s funeral arrangement and date were not publicly announced. There are rumors that her body would arrive on February 24. But it is unknown if Adam would be there.

Since the death of Lydia Shum Din Ha earlier this week, ex-husband, Adam Cheng Siu Chau's reaction has been publicly scrutinized. Through Adam's assistant, it was revealed that he intended to attend Lydia's funeral in Vancouver, Canada. However, due to daughter, Joyce Cheng Yan Yee's wishes, Adam will not appear at Lydia's funeral after all.
Currently filming 《書劍恩仇錄》in Hengdian, China, Adam will instead attend Lydia's memorial service in Hong Kong at a later date.
While married to Lydia, Adam had an affair, Koon Ching Wah, who is his current wife. Adam and Lydia divorced on bad terms in 1987. Realizing that Adam may be criticized by Lydia's family and relatives at the funeral in Canada, Joyce advised him not to attend the service. Joyce knew that Adam will likely face an emotionally awkward situation if he attended.
Allegedly, Joyce told Adam that too many people wanted to attend Lydia's funeral in Vancouver. The attendee list was already full and the security guards will not allow anyone who was not on the list to enter the ceremony. As Lydia's ex-husband, Adam should have been placed on the attendee list. However, it was Joyce's ploy to prevent potential awkwardness for her father.
Between the time that Lydia's illness took a sharp nose-dive and her death, Adam did not express [any concern]. This angered Lydia's relatives. Chan Suk Fan also indicated that Joyce did not receive any calls from Adam during Lydia's last days. Thus, Lydia's relatives decided to exclude Adam from the funeral attendee list.
Since Lydia's death on February 19th, Adam avidly avoided the press. Adam's assistant explained that he was truly busy filming in China. He had a long filming schedule as each scene required his presence and the dialogue was long. Thus he did not have any time to return press calls. Adam's assistant asked for forgiveness.
The production crew of 《書劍恩仇錄》indicated that Adam requested vacation time during two periods. He requested 4 days off this week and another 4 days in early March. Apparently, Adam intends to appear at Lydia's memorial service in Hong Kong, which will be held in March.
The funeral site for Lydia was changed last minute to accommodate the attendance of over 400 guests. In attendance will be the 30 people that worked with Lydia while she filmed in Singapore, as well as her friends from Taiwan and Canada.
Since Lydia immigrated to Vancouver for several years, she established good connections with government officials, who praised Lydia for her contribution. The Mayor of Vancouver, Sam Sullivan, indicated that he was very good friends with Lydia and admired her performance talents. Thus he will issue a public statement on Tuesday as a tribute to Lydia.
According to a reliable source, Lydia's funeral will be held on Wednesday, February 27th at 10 AM. On Friday, February 29th a Chinese community association will hold a memorial service for her in Vancouver as well.

Truthfully I never watched any of Adam Cheng's movies or dramas, save for Chor Lau Heung. It was shown in my country sometime in the 90s when I was still in elementary. I remember coming home from school, had my compulsory nap, and tuned in front of TV at exactly 5pm, lol. This was a long time ago, but until now, I would still remember that drama. Granted, I can't remember the storyline anymore, but I still remember Adam Cheng's smooth and charismatic character. The way he smiles is not easily forgotten. God, I need to find a copy of that drama!
You can purchase this series from yesasia!

Yesterday Niki Chow, Adam Cheng, Patrick Tang were practicing playing pool for the new series "King of Billiards" 《桌球天王》. Of the cast members, Niki Chow exposed that her sacrum (a bone in the back) on her back was disjointed. She went to a therapist (Teet Da) to get it treated with some medication, so she can practice playing for this series. She said: "actually its an old injury, I had it since filming 'The Gentle Crackdown'. The doctor said that it will take 10 days for it to get better, right now I'm a bit hunchbacked. After it is treated my chest will straighten up. (So that means your breast be bigger?) Not will be bigger, it means I can straighten up my chest for life." As for when she was practicing, although Niki's skills are only average, but she ends up taking the lead in shooting balls in. It was a really funny scene.
As for Adam Cheng he claimed that he had been practicing everyday at the snooker club for filming the series. Asked whether he would need to inform his wife when he goes to the snooker club? He replies "Now I have to ask for permission wherever I go, that will be prove I'm a good. " (Aren't you good?) "I have always been good. (Did you meet girls while you were at the snooker club?) "No, I won't dare to." (Do you have to ask for permission this from your wife to play snooker with Niki Chow?) "No I don't need to, Niki Chow is my good girl." ( Referring to the series character).
In addition, at another event, Niki Chow admitted that she could only drink a low unit of alcohol, therefore she will only attempt to try when she is with close friends. When mentioned whether drinking alcohol with rumored boyfriend Kevin Cheng would be the most safest time to drink? She shakes her head and says she doesn't know.

he was so good in acting in his time, but i wonder what hes planning to do now since he hasnt really made anything lately besides holding some concerts in sydney
He's still very active. He had finished filming a China production series in March and a TVB production in October. This year he held several concerts in Singapore, Macao and will be going to USA in the end of this month for another 3 shows. He was invited to a charity event in Singapore and presented awards for the winners at The Golden Bell Award Ceremony in Taiwan. TVB recently invited Adam to present the "Best Actress Award" at their 41st Anniversary.

I think he is one of those actors who is able to do any role! My Dad loves his songs! Does he write any of his own songs?
Cantonese is such a lovely language. I hope HK people continue to speak it and especially to their children and not only speak Manderin and English!
Stephen Chow Sing Chi is another one whom I think has created a unique Hong Kong Cantonese language culture.
These stars are our role models and they assist in keeping the Cantonese Hong Kong culture alive - especially with the old TV episodes TVB use to have in he '80's!

Wild photos of Adam Cheng's daughter exposed
Scandalous photos of Adam Cheng's daughter, Winnie Cheng, had been exposed by netizens. 19-year-old Winnie posted photos of her partying and kissing 19 different men on her blog, one of which was taken in bikini. After the photos were exposed, Adam merely replied, "It's not a big deal to be in bikini."
Photos of Winnie kissing two different men on Christmas night last year in Hong Kong were splashed on tabloids. According to sources, Adam was furious over photos of her daughter's frivolous behavior and sent her off to college in England immediately, hoping she will mend her moral integrity. Being out of sight of her parents, her life took for a more exciting, amorous turn.
The photos were mostly self-taken on the streets, beach, night clubs, public toilets, buses and even on the bed. Occasions varied from Halloween parties to private theme parties. Among them include a set of beach photos, part of them believed to be taken in the public bathroom at the beach. Winnie, dressed in bikini, was seen in the arms of a topless tattooed man, kissing.
"What's the big deal about being in bikini? She's almost 20 years old and do not need us to meddle in her life. More importantly, she's pretty. I will remind her to be careful; don't post photos online," Adam replied.
Winnie is the elder daughter of Adam and his current wife Koon Ching-wah; they have a younger daughter, Cecily. Joyce Cheng is his daughter with late ex-wife, Lydia Sum.

Because TVB and the four record companies haven't resolve their copyright tax incident, many singers cannot appear to "Jade Solid Gold," causing the show's rating to drop. "JSG" will make changes to regain its lost grounds. It would approach to veteran singers that don't belong to the four record companies like Adam Cheng and Liza Wang. Next month they would hold a a "Golden Songs Entertainment is Really Classic Concert" to save the show.
Yesterday Adam replied to reporters and said: "Don't dare to say I'm saving the show, 'JSG' is a music program, without that many singers it really isn't that good, but I heard 'the four' and TVB would resolve their matter soon. We don't know how many episodes we would do, but want to do something new, like rapping with MC Jin, I can do it. (Impersonating?) It would take too long to prepare!"
