  3. To Noah: I'll try to a little harder to post something you never knew before. Ha ha... :)

    To mare: Flora does that to a lot of her male co-stars. For example, Gallen, Moses, Bowie, Nick, Jacky Lui, etc. :D For me, I love Moses and Flora as a couple. Flora would have to be my favourite of all time Moses pair up. :D

    Most of the Did You Know's I didn't know at all.. But I knew about:
    - Amy Kwok named Wayne Lai's son.
    - Nancy Wu took Selena Li's spot at "Strictly Come Dancing II" and Grace Wong took Bernice Liu's spot
    Myolie Wu's English name is derived from her Japanese name, Miyori, which was given to by her stepmother.

  13. Added the Myolie and He one on July 12th. She is probably going to start mentioning it in interviews soon because BF3 is airing. ;)

  14. After doing some research, I've changed the Stephen Chan one. His stage name was Wai Ka Ching when he was a DJ. :)

  15. @hyn5: Finally had time to read your special posts.

    Haha.... Did not know that the crew of HHII thought that Moses and Yoyo were a real couple. Really love their chemistry. Wish that Moses would pair up with actresses closer in age.

  16. To Guru:

    Also like Moses and Yoyo together. Also, have always wanted Moses to collaborate with Jessica (she even expressed it before), but doubt it's ever going to happen, since they film for opposite sides.

  17. wow the HH2 cast thing is hilarious! haha but I have to agree that Yoyo and Moses' chemistry was really great in that drama! They really gave off a couple feel!
