Artistes Yoyo Mung and Alex Fong were working for the series "A Great Way to Care II". When Alex saw Yoyo, he immediately congratulated her and also called her 'Mrs. Cheng'. He laughingly said to Yoyo, "You can finally get married! I am also happy for you! Next year, must inform everyone earlier...everyone will arrive earlier". Yoyo unexpectedly pointed out that he didn't inform in advance when he got married back then, and also wanted Alex to sponsor some banquet tables for her. Alex said, "It's because I don't have enough money! Didn't bother with just having those two tables! You must make it big! Able to get married at this age is also quite happy". Yoyo revealed that she would be getting married next year...also hoping for everything to be simple. As for the details of the proposal, she said, "He proposed to me before my birthday...more alarming than happy. As for the details, it's okay for me and him to remember. You guys don't have to know".

Yoyo Mung Reveals That Marriage Matters Will Be Simple

Yoyo Mung and Alex Fong went to a small church in TVB City to film the series "A Great Way to Care II". The scene was about them going to the church to investigate to prove that Matthew Ko was the founder of an evil cult. Yoyo, who will be getting married soon, was asked about the progress of her marriage. Have the in-laws communicated? She said, "No. Absolutely none. Everything will be simple. (Holding a banquet?) If able to not hold one, then not holding one. Will not be wearing a wedding dress. (Not taking wedding photos?) The pictures taken on the wedding day have the most mood".

Personal Note: A lot of joyous news this year! Congratulations to Yoyo! :)

So funny when Alex and Yoyo 'inch' each other...have always liked their chemistry!

Joey Meng Laughs About Encountering 'Mean Person': Has Not Been Isolated

CREDIT IF REPOSTED

0102

Joey Meng has been filming "Cousin, You Are Good", her first series for TVB, with Wong Cho Lam, Ivana Wong, Louis Cheung, etc. Joey expressed being happy and not being isolated as rumoured: "I am very accustomed to this new TVB environment in the whole month that I have been filming. Next month, will be going to Dongguan to do location filming!"

The new series has 'Big Mean Person' Wong Kwong Leung taking part. The other day, the scene was about Louis, who plays a designer, designing an evening gown for Joey. That night, during a charity fashion show, Wong Kwong Leung, who plays a wealthy man, won with a one million bid. Ivana was also on site. Joey said that Wong Kwong Leung's so-called 'mean' is actually just his voice: "When he's scaring people, everyone on set cannot hold back laughter. We have been filming happily!"

Ivana, who is also filming series for the first time, also does not want to part because filming is completing soon: "From originally being really scared to not wanting to part now. In the series, Cho Lam and I are a pair. He and the producer are very good...saw me in a stage drama before....praise me for improving more and more!"

Personal Note: There's still location filming in Dongguan?!

Nice to see TVB investing in on-site location filming for many series!

The day before, Francis Ng, Fala Chen, and Ron Ng were at the airport filming "Triumph in the Skies II" late into the night, attracting many tourists surrounding them to take pictures.

Ron revealed about going to Sanya and England to do location filming afterward. He especially anticipates going to England, where he hasn't gone before. He revealed about originally also going to Spain to do location filming (due to being influenced by the soccer in the local area, he extremely likes this place), but was changed to England afterward.

Personal Note: Ha ha.... Ron accidentally poked Fala in the face when he was hugging Nancy! :P

No Sleep for Roger Kwok and Joey Meng Due to the Rush of Filming

01
Joey laughingly said that, having Roger as a partner, extremely happy even if filming series is labourious.

02
Roger hasn't slept for 48 hours...looks weary.

03
Joey, who hasn't filmed series for a long time, enjoys working.

TVB artistes Roger Kwok and Joey Meng went to Disneyland Park to do location filming for the series "Cousin, You Are Good", attracting a large group of tourists surrounding them to take pictures. The storyline was talking about Roger and Joey bringing a group of children to the park to play. It could be seen that Roger and Joey looked weary when working, as they haven't slept for many days due to the rush to film the series. After finishing all-night filming, would then immediately follow with location filming...considerably labourious.

Not Enough Sleep for Joey Meng: Playing Drifting

Yesterday, after finishing all-night filming in the early morning, Roger Kwok and Joey Meng immediately went to Disneyland Park to continue filming for the series "Cousin, You Are Good". Roger and Joey looked weary. Roger actually hasn't slept for 48 hours; he frankly said that, in the past ten years, hasn't experienced such tight filming. When asked whether he has complained to the producer, he said, "Yes. Actually, the producer is already very considerate! These few days, couldn't even make it in time to return home...couldn't see my son. Recently, he would ask when seeing me, 'You're going to work again tomorrow?' The weather is hot, and there are many action scenes...really very tiring and labourious. This morning, after seeing the sun, almost fainted! Do not dare to tell my son that I'm going to Disneyland to film...afraid that he would make a fuss about wanting to come!"

As for Joey, she has only slept for 45 minutes in the past three days. She laughingly said that, when walking, legs are also unstable...as if they are drifting: "Now, have been trained to sleep wherever [I] go. Rushing to film this week, so more labourious. Before, it was okay. Filming is like this. Can handle it...also happier having Roger as a partner!"

Personal Note: This series should be wrapping up soon, as Joey has to film "A Good Heart Goes Haywire".

Roger does looks tired in the pictures, but he still looks young.

Lau Ching Wan and Louis Koo Playing Brothers: Entering Inferno

CREDIT IF REPOSTED


01

The day before, Lau Ching Wan, Louis Koo, and Angelica Lee started filming the movie "Inferno" in Bangkok, Thailand. The movie is directed by the Pang brothers, and it is Mainland's first fire disaster 3D movie, with an investment exceeding 150 million dollars. In the movie, Ching Wan and Louis play firefighters, rescuing Angelica out of the inferno in the first scene, causing the two to sweat on their backs...extremely labourious. Louis laughingly said, "First time playing brothers with Ching Wan in a movie, but heard that we're brothers of the same father but a different mother because our skin colour is also dark!" Ching Wan frankly said that there are many explosive scenes in the movie; there is a definite danger when filming, so will protect himself.

Angelica laughingly pointed out that it is not the first time collaborating with Louis, having previously taken part in his music special, but Louis did not want to bring up the past, immediately playing dumb and pretending to have amnesia: "Really? How come I don't remember it?"

Personal Note: Ching Wan and Louis have been in many movies together, but this is their first time playing brothers.

Ha ha.... Guess Louis doesn't want to remember his singer days! :P

外面十號大風 亦要撐住天空 接你放工
空想於心中 眉目傳送 開口即中
換著十樣面孔 直到與你坐家中 才算放鬆
委屈於心中 誰若流過一滴血雙份痛
情懷若未凍 就抱擁

如角色不同 也不准內訌 你值得嬌縱
各種包容 各種哭或笑 暖著過冬
如理想不同 鬥心一樣勇 愛在我心中
不講 馬上行動

Can see why this series has been placed in the later time slot, as there are many adult jokes. :P

Julian Cheung portrays a pilot in the TVB series "Triumph in the Skies II", and also personally invited Calvin Choi to guest-star as an airplane mechanic.

Yesterday was Julian Cheung's 41st birthday. He chose to celebrate it quietly, and went to set captive animals free to sea with his wife, Anita Yuen, to pray for luck for his good friends around him. When asked about his birthday wish, Julian said, "Most want to be healthy...had insomnia recently, so hope to be able to sleep until the morning". As for the evening, he will stay home and have dinner with his family to enjoy a simple meal.

Tavia Yeung and Ron Ng celebrated their birthdays together with a hundred plus fans. They cut the cake and ate birthday buns on stage. Tavia even pretended to kiss Ron. Ron, who does not have a girlfriend, is rather lonely? He said, "Every year, [I] have to work on set...have fans to celebrate with me. (Ex-girlfriend, Viann Zhang, being scolded at?) I haven't played Weibo for a long time. Have also changed the password...won't respond to it that much".

Rachel Kan: Simple Love @ 《Sudden Weekly》 Issue 891



簡愛 簡慕華

某些角度的簡慕華,很像王菲。
「我哋都係 cool cool哋嗰類,唔出聲,唔埋堆,唔笑個樣仲好惡㖭。」簡慕華說。
一個是半退隱江湖的樂壇天后,一個是常伴你左右的電視台綠葉。論名氣,是無可能比較的。但論今時今日的人氣,後者又未必輸蝕太多。
單計今年,簡慕華已先後參演八套劇集,出鏡率絕對高過胡杏兒與鍾嘉欣。
「我好明白自己嘅位置,我知自己只係二線,所以唔介意做甘草。」
甘草言之尚早,黎耀祥也是四十五歲後才爆紅,簡慕華今年不過三十五。
況且,她是戚其義愛將,發圍不是天方夜譚。
「我哋係好朋友咋!」
她笑得很甜,一點不 cool。
簡單地愛慕才華,夠生存的了。

01

毒死曾志偉

02

一年容易又港姐,差點忘記了簡慕華也是選港姐入行。她是千禧年那屆,冠亞季軍分別是劉慧蘊、簡佩堅和劉嘉慧, sorry,真係無乜印象。
「那年評判喜歡乖的類型,我則是最曳那個。」
那年的主題是玩盡曾志偉,簡慕華被問到贊不贊成香港小姐設「一條龍」服務,她答:「贊成,可以由細開始學儀態……」志偉再問:「你唔驚我做主持咩?」她也氣定神閒:「唔驚,有 Do姐喺度睇住,佢會幫我哋毒死你!」結果,贏得全場掌聲。
「選港姐純粹因為貪玩,我的確又由頭玩到尾。我不怯場,也不怕志偉,每次出場總會很有娛樂性,但名次就輪不到我了。」
她在上水長大,鳳溪中學畢業,數理化與體育成績超好。考進科大物理系,原本可以教書或在實驗室做研究,但她嫌不夠好玩。
「有同學話可以去天文台做,指着個電腦芒講颱風那種,但我怕悶呀!」
試想想假如現在打風有簡慕華這樣的人物出來預測颱風走勢,會是多麼的眼前一亮。她沒去成天文台,反而去了考空姐。國泰航空與泰國航空都考,結果後者先取錄,她就去了泰航。做了一年地勤,又貪玩走去選港姐。
「那年入圍可以去澳洲,宣傳片好吸引,我未去過嘛!」
父母從事酒店管理,家裏還有一弟,小康之家簡簡單單。沒有甚麼經濟負擔,因此容許她繼續任性。
「選美當然希望有名次,日後的路可能會易行一點。但沒有名次亦無辦法,慢慢行囉,拍劇一樣可以很好玩。」

03
《造王者》飾最無鬥爭能力的儀妃,只好捱打呀陰功!

04
《護花危情》做秦沛老婆,兩人相差 32歲,又不覺太離譜。

生命中最重要的人

她性格頗單純,既然做了藝員,又好像「幾好玩」,於是一心一意呆了下來。官方資料記載,她 2001年開始拍劇,第一次演出是《尋秦記》,飾博士,只出現過兩集。資料沒記載的,是在這之前她客串過一部電視電影,叫《鐵翼驚情》,飾空姐。
「最後講飛機遇氣流失事,其中一個空姐要吊威吔由機頭飛去機尾,導演問:『邊個做?』我爭着要做,無人舉手夠我快!」
那個鏡頭只得一秒,根本看不到樣貌。簡慕華怎會不知?但她覺得好玩,不介意。導演和監製看在眼裏,立刻對這個肯搏肯捱的新人另眼相看。忘記告訴大家,《鐵翼驚情》的導演和監製,都是戚其義。
「阿戚後來告訴我,見我經常一個人背個背囊上班下班,像個學生一樣,傻下傻下咁。」她報以甜笑。
緣份原來早在十一年前已開始了。眾所周知簡慕華是戚其羲的愛將,從 04年的《金枝慾孽》開始,之後《火舞黃沙》、《珠光寶氣》、《飛女正傳》、《天與地》、《4 in Love》、《心戰》和未播出的《金枝慾孽(貳)》,只要是戚其義的戲,簡慕華必定有份。坊間更盛傳她是他的女朋友,她亦從來沒有否認。
「但我也從來沒有承認呀!我們是很好的朋友,但現階段真的不是拍拖,未發展到那地步。(是否正在發展中?)大家都忙,暫時沒打算發展。我承認男女朋友是應該由朋友開始,我也不敢講將來會點,但這一刻真的不是。我一直沒有否認,是因為這些新聞又沒有造成甚麼傷害,用不着刻意澄清。」
說句公道話,這些年記者只管自己寫,從來無人正式面對面問過簡慕華。
「無論如何阿戚是我生命中一個很重要的人物,沒有他給我的機會,一定不會有今天的簡慕華。其他監製用我,會因應我的外形給我類似的角色;阿戚剛好相反,總要我演我未演過的角色,像考試一樣,每次給我新的功課。我認識他的時候,他已收了火,很易相處,沒有傳聞那般惡。」
姑勿論戀情孰真孰假,簡慕華泊到個好碼頭,也算十分幸運。
「我很知道自己的位置。電視台裏最靚那個一定不是我,我樣貌和性格都沒有攻擊性,因此也不會是被攻擊的對象。」

05
《回到三國》做劉備夫人,今次年齡只差 23年,算好少了。

06
《心戰》裏的幾個心魔,簡慕華的色慾心魔,造型最搶。

有戲做原來好開心

她沒有機心,遊戲人間也心滿意足,因此也不介意做綠葉。
「入行頭幾年,真的覺得做演員唸完對白就可以收工。後來跟黃德斌、黎耀祥他們熟了,你知啦,他們都愛礸研劇本,漸漸我也受到影響,開始認真對待工作。 06年的《同事三分親》是轉捩點,終於覺得自己開竅。」
處境劇像個高速煲,日日磨練,加速演員成長。
「原本我只是個行行企企的秘書,有次『hum』住薯片寸歐錦棠,監製覺得好過癮,於是為我寫多了很多戲份,最後甚至寫了條感情線給我。有戲做的感覺,原來是這麼開心!」
她的感情對手是黎耀祥,當年仍未有柴九,兩個同是天涯等運人日日在研究劇情。
「他跟我分析角色:『嗱,你係個大秘書,呢個男人地位雖然唔及你,但佢全心全意愛你,係好難得嘅事……』祥仔每天都幫我入戲。因為《同事三分親》收得,我也很入屋,之後無論做甚麼角色,觀眾都鍾意。即使做壞女人,觀眾都 buy,真的好難得。」

07
2000年選港姐,連曾志偉都夠膽寸,貪玩不怕死。

Personal Note: Have liked Rachel since Miss HK (also remember Kelly Chen praising her during the competition), and have always enjoyed her acting, as she is able to play a variety of roles convincingly. :)

Interesting how Doris in "Best Selling Secrets" was given more screen time because the producer saw her 'inch-ing' Stephen Au with chips in her mouth! Ha ha.... :P

"Young Ignorance" - Paul Wong


年少無知 - 黃貫中

作曲/編曲/監製: 黃貫中
填詞: 林若寧

*如果 命運能選擇 十字街口 你我踏出的每步更瀟灑
如果 活著能坦白 舊日所相信價值 不必接受時代的糟蹋

年少多好 頑劣多好
不甘安於封建製度裡 迷信上街真理會達到
旗幟高舉 群眾聲討
不惜犧牲一切去上訴 權貴的想法太俗套
只可惜生活是一堆挫折 只可惜生命是必須妥協

年少多好 窮困多好
一蚊積蓄足以快樂到 廉價結他抒發我暴躁
財富得到 年歲不保
捐輸不必講究有回報 人世間總會有異數
只可惜生活是一聲發泄 只可惜生命是一聲抱歉 怕追到

Repeat *

年少多好 朋友多好
一番爭執不會有被告 游戲競爭不會記入腦
年歲增長 無法修補
青春的詩總會老 時間多恐怖

如果 命運能選擇 十字街口 你我踏出的每步無用困惑
如果 活著能坦白 舊日所相信價值今天發現還未老
如果 命運能演習 現實中不致接納一生每步殘酷抉擇
留守 過去的想法 我會否好像這樣 生於世上 無目的鞭撻

FYI: This is Paul Wong's newly arranged solo version of "Young Ignorance", the sub song of "When Heaven Burns".

Lee Tim Sing Denies Filming "Rosy Business III"

CREDIT IF REPOSTED

Yesterday, producer Lee Tim Sing denied filming a third installment over the phone: "Made up! I am indeed producing a series in February of next year...have included Wayne Lai, but no Sheren Tang! If choosing female characters, I will use newcomers...considering JJ Jia and Christine Kuo! (Retiring?) Am retiring this year. Only orally promised TVB, starting next year, to film one series per year; however, the company said that I must film a series in February...really playing me!"

Personal Note: Guess this means that there are no hopes of Sheren taking part in Lee Tim Sing's upcoming series, so there's no point in calling it "Rosy III". It'll just be a non-modern series produced by Tim Gor and starring Wayne Lai.

JJ and Christine are definitely the 'it' girls right now! Even if they're not going to be in the series, they are still mentioned as potential candidates! :P

Last night, Jessica Hsuan went to TVB City to attend a celebration dinner for "Tiger Cubs". As for whether it was confirmed that a sequel would be filmed, she said, "Don't know. Mentioned it before, but heard that series have already been arranged for the next half-year. If it were to happen, believe that it would be a half-year later. I think that, since the series is so memorable, should do it while it's hot, but very passive as actors. Initially thought it would only have ten-some ratings points, but unexpectedly had prime time slot ratings. It is a work before leaving TVB in which I am very satisfied with...a very good justification for myself".

FYI: The entire series averaged 28 points, and had a peak rating of 36 points.

Personal Note: Would definitely want a sequel and a movie version, especially the latter, since this genre is very suitable in film.

Ha ha.... Ma Ming already wore that 'tiger' shirt when he went to New Zealand with Sonija Kwok and Ron Ng in 2006! :P The shirt is still in good condition! :P

Lawrence Ng Filming "The Hippocratic Crush" Sequel to Help Save TVB

TVB has been suffering from a lack of siu sangs and fa dans. Recently, successfuly persuaded Lawrence Ng to return to film series to save TVB. Yesterday, Lawrence revealed having just signed a per series contract with TVB, filming the sequel of "The Hippocratic Crush" with Kenneth Ma. In order to make this happen, TVB was willing to accommodate Lawrence's money-making schedule at the end of the year, postponing the start of the filming to the beginning of February 2013...no wonder Lawrence kept saying that the conditions that TVB offered were very good.

Yesterday, Lawrence, Ada Choi, etc. did a recording for "Let's Play with Our Food", demonstrating their cooking skills in pairs. When asked whether he would be playing the role of Dr. Ching Chi Mei in the sequel of "Hippocratic", he said, "Don't know yet. TVB has also asked for opinions. I want to play an entirely new character...would be quite special to have Black Jack's one-eyed look. (Which female lead do you want to work with?) Asked Ada early on. She is very busy...doesn't have time". He asked in reply whether there were any good suggestions. Reporters suggested for him to look for Christine Kuo, who is recently being heavily promoted by TVB. He said that he never saw her before and also do not know her, but also gasped upon hearing that she is a pretty girl.

On the other hand, because the two had to demonstrate their cooking skills in the programme, Ada revealed that Lawrence was very nervous about the dishes...reminded her over ten times. She laughingly said that Lawrence is good at eating. Reporters hinted that Lawrence likes to eat dishes from different countries; Ada laughingly said, "A pampered son of an influential family must have standards; however, I haven't cooked for a few years. Now, best at making baby formula. Have sponsors for milk powder, diapers, and baby products. Hope that someone looks for our family of three to film a commercial...make money and also have memories". She also highly praised Lawrence's daughter as being a very pretty girl, saying that she doesn't look like Lawrence at all. Recently, there have been many joyous occasions in the industry. She told everyone to be at ease, as she would definitely have more kids.

Personal Note: Definitely wouldn't make sense for Ching Chi Mei to be in a Tommy series.... Also, Paul is nothing without Jackie!

Lawrence's red frames look like the ones he wore in "At Home with Love".

Ada, Lawrence, Michelle, and KK look so young! :)

The media surely loves Christine Kuo...hope that she's not in "Hippocratic II"!

Yesterday, Kate Tsui tried on her costume for the television series "A Great Way to Care II". Because of a schedule clash with a movie, she can only make a guest appearance. The producer will arrange for a sad storyline to explain her withdrawal. "Very unfortunate to not be able to collaborate with Alex Fong too much. The first installment talked about me overcoming my mental illness, resuming my post as a cop, and then dating him. This installment will talk about me dying when we were getting ready to get married. The producer said that, if a third installment were to be filmed, would give me a different character".

In September, Kate may be filming a series in Mainland. She hopes to be able to make arrangements in her schedule to promote the TVB series "Highs and Lows". "This year, I only have one series. Hope to get nominated in the anniversary awards...then able to think about winning an award".

作曲: 鄧智偉
填詞: 張美賢

我沒有 放不低的散聚
捍衛我 要堅守的壯舉
我沒有 過不到的畏懼
無視那 誣蔑我的判罪

*紛擾的世界總會有唏噓
誰亦有維護理想的血淚
消失的證據 未曾磨滅著過去
和我面對 雨打風吹

仍執著一個信念無論結果撐下去
血脈未靜似水 怎會絕望疲累
一些過去 一些面具
放下埋進土裏
自尊教我面對 劫難亦是無懼

仍想像總會有日能讓你知我是對
趁著陣陣雨水 准我靜靜流淚
得失進退 千秋萬代
那管天崩山粉碎
曾歷劫未怕艱辛 日後再聚*

Repeat *

回望最壞那一天 伴著有誰

Personal Note: The full version doesn't sound as choppy, but still think that the song is bad.

Personal Note: Another rigged awards show.... Also, even more pork awards were distributed this year! o_O

Surprised that Michael Tse was left out...would have expected to see Laughing Gor as a favourite character instead of Sunny's emperor role. However, Sunny just signed a per series contract with TVB, so his win may be related to his loyalty.

Ruco, who has been in the industry for 18 years, is still considered a 'newcomer'?!

Surprised that Moses and Linda won the 'Couple' award for "Sir", as their pairing was probably one of the least liked ones of the nominations.

Like Selena's dress the most! :)
