Nancy Wu Ting Yan, Ava Liu (Yu Kiu), Bianca Wu Lam, Cindy Chan Sin Yeung yesterday attended a skin care product event. Yu Kiu would soon have a chance to work with Dayo Wong Tze Wah on a movie. She was very excited, "Earlier I saw Tze Wah at an event. At the time he was taking a photo with (Charmaine) Sheh Sze Man, (Shiga) Lin Sze Nga, I edited the photo so it was only my and his heads and posted it online. It's incredible to be able to work with him on a movie. Then we would have even more photo opportunities. I am his number one fan. (Would you be so nervous that you would have frequent bad takes?) I definitely would blush, I am the most afraid of not being able to hold back my laughter. Usually when he told jokes he would not laugh. However when I worked with (Ronald) Cheng Chung Kei I practiced a method and learned to bite my tongue. I would bite myself as soon as I laugh as a reminder. (Would you not be afraid of the huge pressure?) Earlier I was able to overcome it and worked with Lau Ching Wan and (Nicholas) Tse Ting Fung. That was my most nervous time, so I probably wouldn't have any problem with Wong Tze Wah."

Chi Wai only found out from the news. He said, "I am already very sadden, I haven't dared to call Ng Yuen Fong yet!" Speaking of his relationship with Woo Ka Wah, Chi Wai said that he has known him for over 30 years and felt that he was a super nice guy. He recalled that Woo Ka Wah although was not an artist still took part in founding the star soccer team, as he went overseas to play with Ng Yuen Fong and Anita Mui Yim Fong. "I am considered half a matchmaker for them. For awhile we were very close, almost going out every day and night, night and day.

Her niece said that Lo Fun was optimistic and often taught them to never do anything halfway and never give up. Her motto was a happy life. Thus the memorial program also used her motto as the theme. Her niece said, "When she was ill she was always very optimistic, she instead comforted us!"

Lo Fun's altar was decorated in elegant white. Her family chose her life photo for the final photo, and white lilies surrounded it. In ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

courtesy of on.cc
Artist Venus Wong Man Yik, Edward Ma Chi Wai and others two nights ago attended their new film TO LOVE OR NOT TO LOVE (CHOR LUEN YUT GEI: JIK NAM MUK YAU)'s premiere. Venus admitted that she did not need to ask her boyfriend Derek Tsang Kwok Cheung's opinion about being sexy. "He isn't in Hong Kong, he hasn't even sent a message of encouragement to me. I am too busy to mind! (Did you look over what you are wearing?) I don't have this habit. I always tell him, if LUST, CAUTION asks me to play Tang Wei's role, do I or not? He says, 'You do!' (There is nudity!) He says with a good script he won't make a sound. He will understand! I have to see if I get over myself and have to talk with the company. (Does your boyfriend want to play Tony Leung Chiu Wai's role?) If he gets to be Leung Chiu Wai, he won't even care who will play Tang Wei!"

Ma Chi Wai said, "In the film I have a lot of intimate scenes with Venus. I thank her for her trust. (Do you thank Tsang Kwok Cheung for his trust in you as well?) Sorry, I didn't pay him any attention."

Recently the Hong Kong Seven Police case came to a verdict and immediately became a hot topic on the internet. Former Miss Hong Kong Louisa Mak (麥明詩) who is always concerned about Hong Kong's current situation, last night she wrote a long post on Facebook mentioning about the law. An online netizen later replied with a disappointment on what Louisa has said. Louisa wrote a one thousand word post supporting the rule of law. She said: "The law has the right to sentence someone to death and you may think the Kowloon Emperor is suitable to decide the law, but I still believe in the rule of law and defend the rule of law".

In her long post she explains the judicial system in Hong Kong, as well as the process of pursuing procedural justice. She also mentioned that humans are subjective and impulsive animals and cannot solve problems by force: "We want to be tall animals and not want to live in a bad environment. It is important to establish rules and laws to protect society". At the same time, people are not saints however, the mood is not is not an excuse to express the cause of the establishment of the penalty and again to remind the meaning of punishment. Louisa also said that we all need to comply with the law and the judge themselves follows the precedent.

Yvonne Ho (何綺雲) who is named 'Queen secretary' by online netizens, is recently starring in the drama Destination Nowhere (迷). In the drama she plays a smart policewoman named Natgo. She is also Kevin Cheng's (鄭嘉穎) superior and gets along well with her subordinates. However in reality, her personality is the opposite, isn't good at communicating. She attended Destination Nowhere promotion event and accepted an interview with hk01.com. During the interview, she said: "I am very different to my character. I don't know how to social, a very quiet person, not very good at communicating. I don't usually greet people....I know there isn't a lot of these opportunities for these type of characters. You have to know certain types of people in the industry to get this role, but I am a fighter. If I didn't stay in the industry, I wouldn't know how to fight for something. I said to myself, if I had the chance I would work hard for it. I would not let down the person who gave me this chance.

Not good at communicating, but am grateful for Amy Wong's encouragement

I am not the type of person who can play cool characters and since little I was never a good communicator, she said: "If I run into my family members on the street, I would go the opposite way. It's not that I don't like them, I just don't know what to do". (Is there social barriers?) I think so, but it has improved a lot now. I am someone who leaves straight away after filming because I don't know how to socialise. When there is a lunch break during filming, colleagues would ask me to join them. If not I would eat by myself. Everyone would say I ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Artistes Tavia Yeung and Ron Ng attended a star entrepreneurship press conference as guests. Tavia expressed being interested in going into business with Ron: "We both have many ideas. See whose idea is more innovative. Have to have time to discuss it". Ron expressed that the most important is that the product is suitable for oneself, the public, and has a purpose before launching it. Tavia continued by expressing that one must give everyone confidence when doing business: "Not necessarily usable. Can be a type of pretty thing or knowledge gained to share as a business experience. (Confirmed to invest this year?) Have to give some time to think about it. If there is an unconventional business, hope to come out with a different identity. Although it is a star entrepreneurship, also want it to reflect the public. Want to create a business with fans, and to not have a distance".

Ron Ng Following Tavia Yeung's Lead When Putting Money In

Regarding the investment amount, Tavia said, "Firstly, do not talk about money. Star entrepreneurship is a gimmick". Ron expressed being a beginner in doing business: "I have never gone into business. Do not know about it. I will invest half of what she (Tavia) invests. Scared of losing money!" Tavia added that an entrepreneur must have the attitude of not necessarily making money...able to learn from experience.

Tavia Yeung Has an Acting Craving, Wants to Film Series

There is a saying: 'If you go out to eat, don't worry about how the food is made' because sometimes there will be dark secrets inside the kitchen that will be revealed. It is better not to know than to know. Recently there was a short 20 second video clip circulating the internet, showing a restaurant chef wearing a pair of black rain boots and on the floor was a tub of chicken feet. Afterwards, the chef started treading onto the tub of chicken feet and during the process, a few pieces of the chicken feet fell onto the floor. After watching the clip, it is not known why the chef did this. Maybe this would make the chicken feet more tasty? Some people have said if you drop food onto the floor, you must eat it within 3 seconds and you won't get sick, but those chicken feet seems like it has been on floor for more than 3 seconds.

Reporters then phoned TVB's Steve Lee (Ding Ye 李家鼎) who is well known from his cooking program and asked about his thoughts of the clip. Ding Ye said, although his father used to open a restaurant, but he did not work there. So therefore he cannot comment on this type of approach. Since Ding Ye is very experienced in cooking, so how does he manage chicken feet? He said: "I would first wash it with water. To remove the bones, I would give a cut on the centre of the feet and then slowly take the bones out. It's just that simple!" In common sense, we would use our hands to handle chicken feet and it would be easier to use hands if they need to ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Mainland variety show The Negotiator (王牌對王牌), was successful with its first season and is currently airing the second season. The latest episode was aired on February 10th, the guests: Nicholas Tse (謝霆鋒), Charlene Choi (蔡卓妍), Gillian Chung (鍾欣潼), Jolin Tsai (蔡依林) and more were invited to play a variety of games. Among the guests, Charlene Choi (Ah Sa) was the most funniest when imitating Nicholas Tse with a CHOK look. She tried to expand the nostrils to imitate him, which caused a lot of laughter on the night.

Ah Sa laughed and loudly said: "Every time when Nicholas gets nervous, his nostrils becomes big". After the broadcast, there were numerous photos and video clips magnifying Nicholas's nostrils. Nicholas who always has a calm look, gave his best during the games showing a different side of him.

Besides laughter there was also an emotional story. When the guests were taste testing foods, Cho Lam (王祖藍) had an emotional story in relation to curry fish balls. He shared a story about his father, who was suffering from digestive system problems and before his death, he said he wanted to eat curry fish balls. However, at that time he could only eat liquid food. If he consumed other foods, it will cause him discomfort and vomiting. So Cho Lam and sister prohibited their father from eating his favourite foods, but Cho Lam now regrets: "Now I have a little regret because if you love someone, you don't have to protect them from everything. If you love someone, you have to let them do their favourite things and not decide for them. This story moved the audience and guests of the night.
