The Andrew Lam Man Chung directed and starred Lunar New Year film MY TREASURE (YU JU YU BO) two nights ago held its production wrap banquet. Actors Tian Niu, Ivana Wong Yuen Chi, Richard Ng Yiu Hon, Carl Ng Ka Lung and Susan Shaw Yam Yam attended. Playing a nursing home attendant, Wong Yuen Chi had the most scenes with resident Tian Niu. Wong Yuen Chi joked that she fell under Tian Niu's spell and forgot how to act. "I was very dizzy, staring at her I didn't know how to act. She is pretty, humorous and cute, working with her has been very pleasant." Tian Niu said that Wong Yuen Chi's praises embarrassed her. She also had nothing but praise for Wong Yuen Chi. "I am sincere, it's an ageless friendship, a late destiny. Wong Yuen Chi warms up slowly, as long as you get past her defense, she would talk about anything and everything. She is very sincere. Also don't underestimate her, her acting is great. Her breakthrough performance caught me off guard. I want to work with her again. I would be willing to work on movies with her for half price."

Ng Yiu Hon will turn 79 on the 27th. The film company prepared a cake to celebrate with him in advance. Ng Yiu Hon joked that his birthday wish was not to die too soon. His son Ng Ka Lung followed, "On the actual day I would take him to dinner and celebrate with a group of friends who haven't died yet. (Would you give a grandson to Papa for a present?) Let me try, I have to work harder at it."

Gillian Chung Yun Tung yesterday conducted a marriage certificate signing ceremony in Tsim Sha Tsui with Michael Lai and officially become a couple! They will hold a wedding banquet in Hong Kong tomorrow.

Emperor Group chief Dr. Albert Yeung Sau Sing, gold label manager Mani Fok and friends like Joey Yung Cho Yee, Leo Ku Kui Ke, Charlene Choi Cheuk Yin, Kenny Kwan Chi Bun, Yumiko Cheng Hei Yi and her husband yesterday attended.

The ceremony began around 5PM yesterday. After their vows they exchanged wedding rings then kissed. Joey screamed, "That's great! One more kiss, it's not enough." After that they began the signing. Yeung Sau Sing and Michael Lai's father were witnesses for the couple; after the signing they posed for photos. Mani said, "Mr. Yeung, get closer for the picture." Mr. Yeung joked, "I am afraid Michael would be mad." Later Emperor artists all said to Ah Gil, "We would miss you after you get married!" Ah Gil struck back, "I really want you to get married!" Joey said, "Married water is thrown out daughter." Ah Sa immediately said, "Did you get that right? I think it's married daughter is thrown out water." After the ceremony ended, the newlyweds posed for a group photo with family and friends.

Then everyone went indoors for elder tea ceremony. They first knelt to present tea to boss Yeung Sau Sing, with Joey guest starring as the "matchmaker". After tea, the boss "disciplined" Michael Lai. "You have to treat her well, if not don't come to Hong Kong."

[2018.12.19] CHARLENE CHOI GLADLY ACCEPTS DARING SCENE

The film THE LADY IMPROPER (FEI FUN SHOOK NUI) is seen as another breakthrough film for Charlene Choi Cheuk Yin to challenge herself after SARA (CHOR GEI). The first trailer immediately led to passionate discussion after its release.

THE LADY IMPROPER's first trailer was very shocking, a naked Ah Sa was in the bathroom with her back to the camera. Her wet body was moving with Ah Sa's monologue. "I am married. Other than that, I have nothing to describe myself. I don't know who I am, perhaps, I would turn myself into someone that even I wouldn't recognize......" In the end the most explosive lines were added, "4 years in marriage, I am still a virgin!" In the short 1 minute trailer, Ah Sa has brought her character Siu Man's suppressed emotions to life and naked to the audience!

As a professional actor, Ah Sa stated that before taking THE LADY IMPROPER she already clearly understood the character and the story. As long as the story required it and it would be able to express Siu Man's inner struggle, she would gladly accept this daring bathing scene. "Since I took this role, I naturally knew what the character would be like. Siu Man has a little problem in this area. She isn't frigid sexually, she just has some obstacles."

Dennis To Yuhang, Vincent Zhao Wenzhou, Chan Kwok Kwan and Andy Tien (On Chi Kit) became friends after working together on the Jeff Lau Chun Wai film KUNG FU LEAGUE (GUNG FU LUEN MUN), playing four grandmasters Ip Man, Wong Fei Hung, Chen Zhen and Huo Yuanqi. To Yuhang said that they became close while working together. "After the shoot we went for hot pot together, now we have become the hot pot league."

To Yuhang also said that this time he played an unusual Ip Man, because of time travel in the film he had to fight and be funny. "Director Lau has made many classic films. I learned a lot from him. He taught me a lot about the pace of comedy, which created a lot of chemical reaction." The most memorable to him was sparring with Zhao Wenzhou and Chan Kwok Kwan during the shoot. Due to the heat, Chan Kwok Kwan also collapsed!

Max Zhang Jin, Kevin Cheng Ka Wing, Chrissie Chau Sau Na and director Yuen Woo Ping two nights ago attended their film MASTER Z: IP MAN LEGACY (IP MAN OI JUEN: CHEUNG TIN CHI)'s premiere. Yuen Woo Ping received Michelle Yeoh (Yeung Chi King)'s calligraphy from the event. Zhang Jin earlier joked that he was the most afraid of his wife Ada Choi Siu Fun's Putonghua, his wife replied online, "You won't live long". Zhang Jin said, "I didn't expect it to become such a big deal. My Cantonese is decent. Sometimes I would mess up but my wife would laugh at me for years. Yet I can't laugh at her. Sigh, I have to be careful with what I say from now on."

Was Cheng Ka Wing afraid of his wife like Zhang Jin? Ka Wing joked that it was not fear but respect. Zhang Jin said, "I really am afraid, my wife has violent tendencies! I can only try to be more masculine in my roles so I don't need to be afraid of my wife." Ka Wing cracked up and stated that sometimes he would accidentally step onto a land mine and upset his wife Grace Chan Hoi Lam. "My wife is pregnant now, I don't dare to upset her casually. After hearing what Zhang Jin says, please don't get me into trouble!"

Chau Sau Na just founded her own office and became a boss. She said, "I have been in the business for ten years, it's time to grow up, try to develop on my own, do what I want to do and focus on playing each character well. With my previous company early on, we had a very uniform direction. 10 years later we have different ideas so I try to be independent, I just happened to turn 29+1!"

Congratulations! Congratulations! Show business at the end of the year seriously has a lot of good news as one follows another! Gillian Chung Yun Tung would register her marriage today, Edwin Siu Ching Nam two nights ago at the TVB Awards 2018 during his Most Popular Television Partners acceptance speech announced that he and Priscilla Wong Chui Yu were already married and the 39 year old Niki Chow Lai Kei yesterday through her management company Emperor Entertainment happily announced that she has wed the 45 year old Mainland artist Fu Hongming! Chow Lai Kei said that everything was the best arrangement. Niki's old flame Kevin Cheng Ka Wing congratulated her on the good news.

Chow Lai Kei yesterday posted online, "We are married, entering another stage in life. Everything is the best arrangement, which I want to share with everyone here." In the photo the newlyweds were dressed casually, holding hands and looking back in a simple yet sweet fashion.

Chow Lai Kei's manager Mani Fok Man Hei revealed online that her other half was actually Mainland artist Fu Hongming. "Thank you everyone for your love and support for Chow Lai Kei all along. Today Chow Lai Kei officially announced to friends everywhere that she is already married. She and her husband Fu Hongming under the witness of family and according to their own wishes conducted a simple wedding ceremony and began a new chapter in life. This company hereby wishes the new couple a sweet romance and happily ever after, and at the same time sincerely thank everyone for their concern and blessing on behalf of Chow Lai Kei."

Chow Lai Kei's friend Charlene Choi Cheuk Yin responded, "Congratulations to them, I am happy for them. The worst part was I messed up the time and couldn't attend their wedding. I wanted to personally congratulate them. Later I would take them to dinner." Born on October 29th 1973, Fu Hongming was originally named Fu Chengpeng. Fu Hongming has been married before and has an eight year old son. In 2014, Fu Hongming and Chow Lai Kei were linked in rumors after working on a Mainland series together.

Mani yesterday at the Radio Hong Kong awards joked, "If any artist wants to get married he or she can try signing with Emperor." Mani said that Niki's wedding took place overseas. She wanted to attend but she was too busy with work to. Their wedding was simple, mainly their parents, family and friends attended. Mani said that she was informed for awhile. Niki wanted to handle it in a low key manner, wanted a simple and very warm party. She returned two days ago and yesterday she announced the wedding news. Mani said that she has met Fu Hongming, her impression of him was a polite and mild mannered man.

Was Niki ready to become a mother? Mani said, "They have clearly thought about this before reaching the marriage stage, only when they are ready would they make this decision. (How did you meet?) On a shoot, they have known each other for awhile. When they met again they dated, when the time was right they got married. (Would Niki be with child already?) Absolutely not, they would not have a wedding banquet in Hong Kong either. (What gift did you give them?) A gold pig. When Mrs. Ku (Leo Ku Kui Ke's wife) got married it was a gold pig as well. It presents good fortune."

Niki got married after just signing with Emperor, would her work be affected? Mani said, "I am not worried, her jobs have already been scheduled until next year. Like Ah Gil after marriage she would work even harder, she would act like she is a complete grown up." Mani even revealed that Niki would attend Ah Gil's wedding banquet.

The 38th year old Cecilia Cheung Pak Chi was rumored to have secretly given birth to a third child in early December, but Pak Chi has never admitted it or made any public appearance. Yesterday Cheung Pak Chi through her office social media announced the good news. Cheung Pak Chi revealed that her third son was born in November. "Dear fans and friends, media friends, colleagues, the office is very happy to share good news on behalf of Pak Chi: Ms. Cheung Pak Chi already gave birth to a third son in November and both mother and son are fine. Children and family have always been the most important people Pak Chi has always protected. In the upcoming days, Pak Chi would fully create even more excellent condition for her three children to grow up in. At the same time she would work hard to bring even better work. Little Prince is a month old, thank you everyone for your concern and blessing!"

Cheung Pak Chi also presented gift sets to the Mainland media to announce her motherhood, but the online statement did not mention who the child's father is.

Alfred Hui Ting Hung earlier invited Cheung Pak Chi to promote his new song. Alfred said, "I had no idea, I just found out from the news. That day I happened to run into her and I didn't notice anything different about her. In addition my family always taught me not to casually ask women about their pregnancy, which would be impolite. Should I have said you got fat? So I wouldn't ask, but I know that she really listened to my new song ANT."

When did he see Pak Chi? He said about a week ago but he didn't notice any sign of her having given birth. She still was very pretty and very hot.

Once linked to Cheung Pak Chi, Andy Leung Chiu Fung revealed, "I just heard from the news. She has always liked children, I am very happy for her but I really get nosy and ask. I would check in with her after the promotion. Lately we had less contact, so I don't know how she is doing. However Pak Chi knows us through music. Today happens to be my record release, I would send my new born baby to her as a gift. (Would you like to see the baby?) I would congratulate her, but I wouldn't be particularly curious about the baby."

Radio and Television Hong Kong yesterday held the 41st Chinese Gold Song Awards at the Hong Kong Design Institute and handed out this year's first music report card. On January 3rd a concert will be held at the Kowloon city International Trade and Exhibition Center. Yesterday eight awards were presented, among them Hins Cheung King Hin and the absent Eason Chan Yik Shun won three awards and led for now. Other attending singers included Pakho Chau, Kay Tse On Kay, Gin Lee Hung Ngai, AGA (Agatha Kong Hoi Ka), Jason Chan Pak Yu all won two awards, the absent Joey Yung Cho Yee also had one. The Top Ten Gold Song became twelve, while Hana Kuk Chi Kiu went home empty handed despite staying for the two full hours. Three more awards the Global Chinese Ultimate Gold Song, the Most Excellent Popular Singer and the Golden Needle Award will be presented on January 3rd.

Tse On Kay appeared at an award show after two years years. This year she would try to make time to attend all of them. Would she drag Louis Koo Tin Lok with her? She said, "I wouldn't take the initiative to drag him here, it would depend on what his wishes are. Everything is up to him, but he said that he would try to make it if needed. Although we don't know how it will turn out, I thank him anyway. He has several movies on hand and is busy with promoting, scheduling would be rather difficult. (Are you confident about his live performance?) I have confidence in him about everything."

Hin Jai led with three awards and became one of the big winners. "I am very happy, at least I can already answer to the company at the first award show this year. (Are you confident about winning the Grand Slam?) I would have expectations. If I do I would be happy, if not then so be it because each media judging system is different."
