TVB Encourages Employees to Write Stories, Kenneth Ma Recommends Himself to Be a Pole

Artistes Kenneth Ma, Mandy Wong, Hugo Wong, Hubert Wu, etc. were in Tseung Kwan O TVB City attending a blessing ceremony and an award presentation for the series "Demon-Conquering Taxi". "Taxi" is the original storyline provided spontaneously by an employee that was accepted by TVB and filmed into a series. TVB Deputy General Manager (Programme and Production) Felix To gave the colleague a $10,000 reward to encourage creativity.

Kenneth and Mandy were interviewed together at the event. Kenneth was asked whether he had any story concepts to give to the company. He said, "Back then, also thought of a grandmother-grandchild story, but I cannot be the grandchild. Perhaps a grandfather-grandchild story with me being the grandfather". Mandy said that she likes to dance, so she suggests that the company film a series with a dance theme, and also hopes to see Kenneth pole dance. Regarding this, Kenneth laughingly said, "Good! I'll be the pole, and you dance. This theme is good, but afraid of it not being able to release". Kenneth said that the series' content touches upon supernatural themes, so it may have been because of this that a blessing ceremony was held earlier so that everyone can film at ease. Mandy plays two characters in the series: one is a doctor, while the other is a mysterious character.

Artiste Yoyo Mung (蒙嘉慧), Wong He (王喜), director, Adam Wong (黃修平) and others participated in directors exchange meeting session. Apparently, Yoyo gained substantial weight during an event in May but lost some weight on 14 September. When asked if she tried to keep fit by exercising, Yoyo said: "Trying hard to buy many black tops and exercising but not enough though." She added she needed to wear jacket to hide her fats during summer.

Yoyo disclosed she will be filming an artistic film and acting as a dance instructor later and could take the chance to keep fit: "Will be attending basic dance lessons and practising for 3 hours daily. I must slim down. (Any dancing background?) Nope. The dance instructor has confidence to teach me although I am more than 40 years old now. (Your husband, Ekin Cheng (鄭伊健) feels you are too skinny in the past?) Nope. He will say I am fat when at home." She added they had insufficient to play badminton together.

Yoyo filmed a 30 seconds video clip about Hong Kong as director this time and revealed it was difficult due to many themes about Hong Kong. She eventually chose food and environment as the themes: "I love to eat egg waffle and shoot an uncle making it in Tai O. I get to eat liquid nitrogen ice-cream there too and it is very interesting. (Seek any advice from Ekin?) Nope, as filming should be based on objective views. I share it with him and he supports me. He helps me to ask Chan Kwong Wing (陳光榮) to compose music and I am full of gratitude towards him."

Actress Myolie Wu (胡杏兒) and her husband, Philip Lee (李乘德) were married last year and it is pointed that she wishes to have baby quickly due to the pressure from the elderlies. She is supposed to rehearse stage play in Shanghai but requests to rehearse in Hong Kong as to have additional time to make baby with her husband.

When ON.CC (東網) asked if she moved house in order to have baby, Myolie said: "Moving house only and nothing to do with having baby. The elderlies do not pressure me and I give stress to myself. Have to wait until finishing my work first. (Shift the rehearsal from Shanghai to Hong Kong?) We always rehearse in Hong Kong and it is arranged by the organisation committee, and not request by me."
