Dior Cheng Yi Kin will perform concerts at the Hong Kong Coliseum in February next year. Tickets went on sale this morning at 11AM. As soon as the news came, a city all ticket grab immediately began. Friends also replied, as Sammi Cheng Sau Man, Eric Kot Man Fai, Jordan Chan Siu Chun, and Charlene Choi Cheuk Yin offered themselves to be interviewed with Ekin on the radio. After 10 years in retirement, "Forever Smartie" Gigi Lai Chi would also support Ekin in person.

Yesterday Sammi and Ah Kot started off the program. Sammi, Ekin and Ah Kot 22 years ago worked together for the first time on the film FEEL 100% (BAK FUN BAK GUM GOK). Looking back at the poster, their memories flooded back. Sammi said, "I remember we shot the poster in Stanley. The photographer told us to casually pose, we were done very quickly, so fast that we didn't know it was already shot. At the time I just started in film, I didn't think to much. I was young and green. I was half at play and half at work, selling youth." Ekin suddenly pointed at Sammi and revealed, "Once we were shooting on the roof, she was in a school uniform. Suddenly she said, 'I want to sunbath'. Then she lay down and sunbathed. At the time I thought, 'You have a lot of freckles, you still want to sunbath?' ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Gillian Chung Yun Tung will hold her wedding banquet this month, Ah Sa said that she and Joey Yung Cho Yee would present an almost HK$ 100,000 wedding cake to their friend.

Wai Ying Hung said that this would be a continuation of the previous film 77 HEARTBREAKS (YUEN LOI TA 77 CHI). She would again play Choi Cheuk Yin's mother, but her character would not be as tragic as last time. Instead she would have a wedding ceremony in the film, for now she still has no idea who would the Prince Charming be. Later Sister Hung would have to attend a wedding gown tailoring. She said, "I haven't had much luck with wedding gowns, I only had one wedding gown photo shoot in film!" She pointed out that she did not know whether she would be able to dress up a little. "In the film I play a woman in her 50s, I won't be all that pretty. I only hope that the wedding gown won't be too low cut. My cleavage isn't that great." Reporters praised her for having a career line. Sister Hung joked, "Mine is a change jar!" Reporters then ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Monday December 10, 2018 Hong Kong

Bob Cheung's first concert was held at the KITEC last night. Pinky Cheung, Akina Hong, Corinna Chamberlain and her husband, et al. went to watch the show. After singing the songs 《堅持》, 《自由》, etc. while playing the guitar to open the show, Bob and Jade Kwan sang a gospel song together. Jade expressed that she saw him grow up; when Bob was still a member of Akago, already felt that he had passion. Steven Cheung, who was another guest, expressed that he has known Bob for ten-plus years; at his most helpless time, he took him in for five years. He said, "He greatly values friendship. Knew that I had no money...stealthily put a few hundred bucks on my pillow".

Moon Lau, who appeared sexily, played a piano accompaniment for Bob. She said that she and Bob have vastly different personalities, but they both believe in God. Then Bob sang 《流星雨》 and 《情非得已》 with 'Life on the Line F4' Joey Law, Arnold Kwok, and Matthew Ho. Arnold even used a comb to comb the three's long wigs, which roused laughter. Afterward, Joe Ma and Moon appeared, and they sang 《無畏的肩膊》, the theme of "Life on the Line" together, and took the opportunity to rally for votes. Jeannie Chan, who went to watch the show said on stage, "I came today to rally for votes!" Joe humourously said, "You sign TVB first!"

Bob ended the concert with the song 《圓缺》. He even said teary-eyed, "I know that it is very difficult to walk this path. Once I knew that could have a show, felt very shocked...shouted for a few nights in the bathroom. I will ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The 17th Huabiao Awards took place in Beijing two nights ago. WU Jing with WOLF WARRIOR 2 received excellent actor award. Excellent actress went to Chen Kun. Dante Lam Chiu Yin received the excellant director award.

OPERATION RED SEA's director Lam Chiu Yin was somewhat nervous on the stage. "Now I am still shaking, thank you Huabiao awards, thank you Bona, Emperor Motion Pictures for trusting me. We filmmakers would say, let them have their own lives. OPERATION MEKONG and OPERATION RED SEA gave me a lot of challenges, during which I experienced a lot of hopelessness and pleasant surprises, a lot of heart pounding thrills. I never had the chance to thank all the films that I have made in the past and their workers. Thank you."

The film MASTER Z: THE IP MAN LEGACY (IP MAN OI JUEN: CHEUNG TIN CHI) took to the red carpet as the recommended film. Aside from Yuen Woo Ping and Max Zhang Jin, Ada Liu Yan also attended. Yuen Woo Ping said that this film was different from the IP MAN film series. In it Zhang Jin used a variety of kung fu except Wing Chun in order to give more impact to the action choreography. Zhang Jin said, "In order to keep the audience's attention, many fight scenes would not be too gimmicky with the styles. Instead they would be more solid or have even faster pace." Zhang .....

The film DEAREST ANITA was about the late music diva Anita Mui Yim Fong. Myolie Wu Hung Yi and Sonija Kwok Sin Nei took part. Hung Yi played a childhood friend of Sister Mui, since she was still alive Hung Yi was able to talk with her. She had to play from age 18 to 40s and even motherhood, each scene would explain what happened between her and Sister Mui. Thus it was very memorable.

Kwok Sin Nei in the film played Mui Yim Fong's loyal fan. She said that the most memorable scene was when she went to the dump to look for Sister Mui's fan letters. Yet after a few takes she was afraid that the police would come. When she climbed onto a box truck she hit her knee right on it, everyone there heard the "bang". "However I had to keep performing like nothing happened. When I got home the bump the size of an egg was already swollen on my knee. My daughter watched it and asked me what happened. She even rub medicine on it for me, which was very sweet!" Wu Hung Yi was envious and Kwok Sin Nei said to her, "You will have the same feeling later!" Hung Yi said, "Mine is a boy, I hope so!"

Did they have even more understanding about Sister Mui after the film? Kwok Sin Nei said that the story was what really happened between Sister Mui and fans, from ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Wants Money Not Awards! Kenneth Ma Denies Being an 'Accompanying Runner King'

Tuesday December 4, 2018 Hong Kong

Artiste Kenneth Ma attended a mall event. Regarding TVB's awards presentation in the middle of the month, he frankly said that he had never guessed that he would win an award: "For TV king, I want Lai Lok Yi to get it. His 'Who Wants a Baby?' is very good. I also want Edwin Siu to get it because he and I filmed 'Deep in the Realm of Conscience' together, but winning awards is about luck. I think that Ruco Chan is the luckiest. He took a wife and also has a child, but Benjamin [Yuen] also has a chance...also happy for him to have won 'TV King' for Singapore and Malaysia. As for myself, it doesn't matter if I win an award or not. I want money. Leaving awards to fate. I am very poor; hope to have more events this year". As for TV queen, Kenneth is optimistic about Alice Chan and Mandy Wong. When asked whether he would support his girlfriend, Jacqueline Wong, he laughingly said, "I will vote for whatever she is nominated in. I am definitely supporting her. She seems to be nominated for 'Supporting Actress'.

Regarding being referred to as an 'Accompanying Runner King', he said that he was not unhappy because of this; he also laughingly said that he is not an accompanying runner but a guide runner instead: "I guide the blind while running. Guide runners run even faster but do not get an award when they win; rather, it is the one beside them who gets it. Actually, I am happy for whomever wins an award. We are all friends who have known one another for many years. I have ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

In Hong Kong, would attend functions if there is time. (A couple partnership with Jacqueline?) Hope there is". As for gifts, he revealed that he has not bought one yet; a reporter suggested that he buy a ring. He laughingly said, "Seems too serious. Have not discussed this issue yet, so have to make money. Kevin Cheng's was very expensive. (How much money do you have to make?) It's a timing issue. You ask her next time".

Regarding him laughingly referring to himself as a 'guide runner' yesterday sparking a heated discussion, Kenneth expressed that his original intention was somewhat distorted, and he clarified, "I am saying that my mentality toward taking part in awards presentations is like that of a guide runner.
