anita yuen

Just finished filming "Born Rich", Anita Yuen was seen ditching her son Morton to go out with her husband Chilam Cheung to Central to sweep the stores. Not sure if its because of the work pressures, but Anita appeared to have some fat.

At 3:30pm, Anita, husband Chilam and a friend showed up on On Lan Street, where Reporters spotted them and took pictures. Chilam immediately waved at Reporters. Afterwards they went into a "Superman" fashion store and split up. Anita constantly selected clothing for her husband, when Chilam tried on the shirt and looked in the mirror, Anita also gave him advice. After 30 minutes, Chilam finally picked out the shirt and a pair of sneakers, Anita then paid for the items on the counter. After, the three of them left the store and left in their 7 person van.

Chai Gau still has to die in the end, Wayne feels that this is the most perfect ending. "Chai Gau's personality has always been upright climbing up from the hunger, he deserves to die. His life is quite fascinating. Also TVB is sponsoring an event for everyone to watch him leave the world at a shopping center, just like everyone going to Chai Gau's funeral! It's an honor. Of course, I will be part of the group who sends Chai Gau off, if the TV ratings could break records, then it would be even more perfect."

Unfortunately, he is always busy, therefore he still hasn't been able to go. He told reporters "I have a "Live show" concert in July. In October, I will be working on a new film by Wong Cheng-Foo. After that, the company wants me to be the spokesperson for fashion brand "Undercover". I have to get ready for the fashion show in Florence, Italy. I don't think I can go to Africa this year, maybe next year."

Speaking about the new film, Juno said they haven't chosen the female lead yet. Reporter asked if he would recommend his girlfriend Gillian for that role? Juno said "No, I didn't recommended her. I think different artist for that role will be more refreshing. (There is a rumor that mainland China has relaxed about Ah Gill working there, she is now free to work.) This is good news, I hope she does well for herself. I am a friend of hers, I am happy for her too. I didn't contact her though but will support her in my heart."

Wu Chun call me the Finance king


The new generation of idol superstar, Wu Chun has a very handsome appearance. He can sing and act and has been out for 3 yrs. Rapidly becoming famous in 3 countries including Japan and Korea. Fans only know that he's from Brunei, comes from a privileged family background and is in every sense of the term " the knight in shining armour". However, not known he is also at the same time a skilled and experienced business man

Not yet 30yrs old, Wu Chun in his home town in Brunei has opened 2 luxurious gyms, also takes on the responsibility of managing a worlds famous watch company, has 2 nutrient shops and also numerous gym equipments representative.

Although Wu Chun is very modest, indicating that his income compared to the Brunei Royal Family is simply a drop in a bucket, but he will not hesitate to speak about earning money. For him in terms of earning money seemingly is not difficult. As early on as 15 yrs old, he planned and held a Brunei worldwide national inter-school university basketball competition, earning his 1st income in his youth of 1000 Brunei dollar (BND) (U.S. dollar equivalent of about $700 )

Wu Chun said "To attract University groups to compete wasn't hard, I learnt the NBA 3 point game, gaining the highest scores, learning methods of the rebound king. Faxing, handing out leaflets to all the big schools, asking them to form a team of 5 to come register. Because I organised so that the game would be more fun than a normal competition, 30 groups came. Each group paid a registration fee of $80 BND, so the total came to $2400 ; The drinks at the venue and the trophy cup I had one by one searched for companies to sponsor us for free. Taking away the $50 fee for the referee, the rent of $500 and miscellaneous expenses, I made a clean profit of $1000".

Who said a 15yr old boy "with no hair on his upper lip, can't work fast" ? Wu Chun said maybe it was because he was very young, hot blooded and sincere so the company and the competing university students particularly trusted him. 2 Years after when he was 17 yrs old, he opened a fashionable pool (snooker) shop that was a sensation in Brunei. Thinking about the 1st time being a boss, Wu Chun very pleased of himself said “ I went to Australia to go to high school, not even reaching 3 months I wanted to run back home to Brunei. I went with friends to play pool to relieve the boredom, seeing how a pool shop with just a few pool tables could earn money, so I thought why don't I just open one".

Wu Chun said that for the 3months he was in Australia, he learnt every style and technique to blend alcohol and drinks. Thinking of Brunei's pool shops they didn't have a bar, " If I put in a nice bar stand and become the bartender myself, the cost of one cup only costs $1 BND, selling it at $5 BND, the profit return would be 80%!".

10 pool tables, interior decoration, 12 staff members salary and the addition of every months rent of 540 BND, Him and his friend together took out $15 000 BND to open the store. Never thought that once the store opened it would immediately become extremely busy, With every cup of his special blend of different styled beverage, within a few months he recuperated the revenue.

" A business earning money there will defiantly be people that will copy, close by like a swarm of wasps have opened a lot of pool shops". Wu Chun said taking advantage of the shop's popularity at it's highest, he persuaded his partner to let go of the shop, both earning $15 000 BND and also the shop's TV, stereo, pool tables etc..."the aftermath of war".

Wu Chun spoke frankly, his father is engaged with real estate business, the enterprise spreads across China, Singapore and Brunei. From his memory in his childhood home's garage, there were 2 branded cars worth $1 million. Since childhood he never had to worry about food and clothes. Every month he would get $150 BND pocket money to spend, during the new year the red pocket would hold a lucky amount of money, every year he would receive $1688 BND (meaning continue to be wealthy). His father would also take the whole family abroad for a big spending spree, everyone each year would get $30 000 NT to spend on famous brand clothes and accessories.

It is reasonable to say that Wu Chun can be at ease and be a "rich man's son", but he said, because he's always want to make money to buy a Subaru sports car that belongs to him, so from childhood the pocket money his parents gave him he wouldn't waste it. His father knew that him opening up a pool shop would never be able to earn the money to buy the car, so while he sent him off to Australia for University he bought him a car. Wu Chun said " I really do regret that I was so fascinated in modifying cars I almost wasted all my savings".

The today's Wu Chun doesn't like famous brands, doesn't play with modified cars, but determined to open up 10 multinational gym chain stores. Wu Chun deeply expressed that a lot of people see him release albums, act in films, do adverts, so busy running round in circles, only sleeping 5-6hrs in a day and when he has a few minutes to spare he will open up his computer and use email while overseas to manage the trivial matters of the 2 gyms in Brunei.

Will he be too fierce over earning money? "Actually I don't care about the money. Money can't buy you health, I knew this when I was 25yrs old when my mother passed away from pancreas cancer". He said, that year was his university graduation and he had planned to return to Brunei, his father suddenly wanted him to 1st fly to Singapore to meet with his mother, in high spirits he arrived at the hotel , however to see his mother's sallow face. Apparently his mum had hidden the fact for 7 yrs. The fact that the cancer relapse had already worsen had completely driven me crazy.

He said, choking back tears "I accompanied my mum running through Russia, America, China, Singapore, Seeing her receive chemotherapy, nutritional therapy, using up all of the possible treatments, but in the end the cancer continued to spread to the liver, lymph, the whole stomach becoming bloated. Even through the doctor used all his efforts to drain the ascites (fluid in the stomach) it would not drain completely..... My heart broke"

After his mother past away, Wu Chun decided he wanted to become for the rest of his life a child that would not let down his mother. He said" My father will one day get old, I want to become the "mountain" for the rest of my father's life!"

He emphasised towards in terms of comparing the opening up of a gym and pool shop it's only on a scale a few times bigger, the importance is that you need to save on all the unnecessary expenses. At the same time buying gym equipment, fitness nutritious foods. Other people directly order from overseas, he will go on the internet and will compare prices; he discovered if you become the representative of the company 1st he can half the expenses and he can sell the imported goods to other gyms again earning money from the access fee.

"For everything, you have to personally put in effort and do yourself, using all your strength. Like me applying to become Brunei's gym equipment company representative, I really did put in a lot of money because there's only one place within the government, running slowly and making long distance telephone calls to foreign countries to explain that even though Brunei's demand isn't that big, I will still defiantly use all my strength to develop it, so when the customer ordered one, I could only order one. The head office believed in me becoming their representative and that for the future there would be space to expand, so they also accepted".

Asking Wu Chun what kind of rich person does he want to be? he replied " When my mother was still here , she'd regularly took me to the nursing home and the children's home to donate money and other necessities. She adopted 2 poor children from Africa, After my work I also adopted 2 ; so after my mother passed away it had changed to 4. I want to have money, to have power to do more charity, and still be able to rely on my own efforts to take my father to travel the whole world, would it not be very happy?" He said he doesn't do risky investments, he doesn't waste money, as time goes by he will become the person in charge of a multinational fitness group.

Ethan Ruan fighting for love

ethan ruan

Be it a supporting actor who is defeated by his love rival in Taiwan drama Green Forest My Home, or the popular and successful lead actor in Fated to Love You and Queen of No Marriage, love never comes easy for Taiwanese pop idol Ethan Ruan in his reel life. In an exclusive interview with Xin.sg, Ruan reveals all. Caution. Spoilers ahead.

In My Queen, Ruan plays 25-year-old Lucas who falls in love with a 33-year-old female reporter who's already engaged. Being the rational man he is, Lucas can only withdraw from the love triangle.

"I think it is rare for someone to be as graceful and gentlemanly as Lucas or Song Yunhao (the fiancé, later knowing that his fiancée no longer loves him, sets her free). Most people tend to hang on to their love with all their might. It goes the same for me. If someone I love is standing right in front of me, I don't see any reason to withdraw."

Previously in Singapore as guest presenter for the Star Awards 2009 in April, Ruan revealed to us that the reporter Shan Wushuang (Cheryl Yang) and Lucas would soon be in an open relationship.

"Subsequently, the drama will focus on how Shan Wushuang faces up to her true feelings and the difficulties she faces in dating a younger man."

Portraying the agitation of the characters drained the energy of the two artistes. Followers of Ruan's previous dramas and movie would probably have observed that shouting is often his character's way of expressing angst and oppression.

Ruan said, "I hate to shout and I think shouting scenes are really tiring. There are definitely better ways of expressing emotions but such scenes in Queen of No Marriage and Fated to Love You were pre-planned. Basically I will not amend the script too much."

A Scorpio, 28-year-old Ruan claims to be less mysterious than his horoscope describes him to be. "I am a forthright person. People can tell that I'm unhappy just by looking at my face and usually I will voice my displeasure directly. I think that is the best way of getting over unhappiness.

"I think I am more reserved when it comes to relationship, so when I meet the girl I like, I will probably hide my feelings and take a few years to confess my love."

Queen of No Marriage is now broadcasting on E City, Channel 56 on Starhub Cable Vision, every Saturday.

Shu Qi jaded to sex and violence


At the Cannes Film Festival for the first time as part of a jury on the red carpet, Taiwanese actress Shu Qi thoroughly displayed her spellbinding appeal.

In an interview with the media after the award ceremony, Shu expressed that while she learnt a lot from the experience of being part of the festival jury, she has became jaded to sex and violence after watching the competing films.

As a judge, Shu had to watch films and discuss them with the rest of the panel. As a result, she had only managed to catch two hours of sleep over two days, and had to decline the invitation to the post festival celebration. Having been to too many events lately, Shu said her cheek muscles had cramps from smiling.

Being a Chinese among the Westerners, Shu had to depend on a translator to express her views about the films and facilitate discussion.

Of the competing films, Shu said she was initially disgusted and intimidated by some gory scenes, but later became jaded to the sex and violence after watching the artistic films that mainly portray such scenes.

Shu said though she managed to learn a lot on the job, it was too tiring and she will think twice about being on the jury again.

The 62nd Cannes Film Festival drew its curtains on Monday.

A very public display of affection from Nicholas Tse to Cecilia Chung

nicholas tse

A year ago, the infamous Edison Chen's photo scandal threatened to wreck their marriage.

Fast-forwarding a year later, it appears the incident only served to strengthen their marriage when Hong Kong actor-singer Nicholas Tse expressed his love for his wife Cecilia Chung at his Shanghai concert.

Midway through the concert, Tse suddenly stopped singing and announced to the audience: "It's a special day today because it's my wife's birthday."

He then made a call to Chung, and had his fans wish the 29-year-old actress a Happy Birthday.

The cheery atmosphere then took a turn when Tse confirmed he had thoughts about leaving the entertainment industry.

"If I stop releasing any more albums in the future, I would like to thank all the people who have been supporting me all these while," he said.

Nicholas' early retirement might still be some distance away, as the doting husband has promised he will look into Chung's request for a mansion and jewellery as her birthday presents.

Judging from her request, Tse could still be in the industry for a period of time. - CNA/fa

A*mei plays envoy in India


Before Taiwanese singer A*mei visited India recently as a World Vision ambassador, there were rumours that she would not shake hands with the locals there because she was afraid of falling ill. Apparently, she had heard that some parts of the country had poor sanitation.

Of course the rumour proved false.

She did more than shake hands with the locals. She hugged and played with children, sang to them and gave them sweets and tidbits.

But she was careful with them, since she had been sick just before the trip.

'I don't want to put them at risk by passing my germs around, especially since HIV-infected people's immune systems are weak. I do not want to be the cause of further health complications for them,' she said.

A*mei, 36, also visited several self-help and women groups, a school, three villages and the slums to better understand the crippling conditions the poor face on a daily basis.

'Hopefully, I can put whatever influence I have to good use,' she said. 'I hope I can move people to act on these problems as best as they can.'

She was in New Delhi last week from Monday to Thursday as part of this year's 30 Hour Famine event organised by World Vision, a Christian relief and development organisation.

The annual event, held on June 5 and 6 this year, sees almost a million people around the world participate in a 30-hour fast to raise funds and increase awareness about global poverty and injustice happening among the poor.

A*mei was in a group of about 15 people, including members of the media and World Vision workers and volunteers. She travelled with her manager and an assistant, but carried her own bag throughout the trip.

This is her second time as an ambassador for World Vision. Her first involvement with the charity was in 2005, when she visited Sudan.

How were the two trips different?

'Every trip is a learning experience for me,' she said. 'We all know about India and how it is overpopulated and full of problems. I am very happy and privileged to be here, and I just want to find out what more can be done.'

Tearing up, she recounted her meeting with an HIV-infected boy who was no older than 10, adding that she was most affected by the plight of young children.

'Children suffer the most. They cannot control their lives and their future, yet they are the happiest to be around. Their innocence and optimistic outlook towards life is something we all can learn from.'

She loved being with the children so much that she even played cricket with some of them at the school she visited.

The kids cheered her on even though she missed the ball the first few times she swung her bat. But she succeeded in striking the ball eventually.

'Seeing them laugh along with me was a powerful reminder that there's a mixture of both happiness and sadness in these places we visit,' she said.

'I've learnt that life is precious and I really hope that we can bring all this research back to come up with solutions to improve their living conditions.

'Too often we talk extensively about what we can do. We must act upon our thoughts and realise these plans.'

Joe Chen, Blue Lan undergoes "Love Research"; Two months of filming has made them good friends

blue lanblue lanblue lan

TTV and SETTV idol drama "Easy Fortune Happy Life" held a "Easy Fortune Happy Life" love research press conference yesterday (May 27). The survey result showed that Blue Lan is actually more like the optimistic "Xie Fu An" than Joe Chen! Blue started exclaiming that "It's quite accurate". Joe also said that "In the drama, I'm the herb girl while he's the carnivore male. It's the opposite outside the drama though." Blue also praised her saying "Your acting is good. Your actual character is very different from the drama character."

Accepted "Love Research"

"Easy Fortune Happy Life" had a 20, 000 netizen love research in Taiwan and mainland. Yesterday, during the specially held press conference, they had Blue and Joe taking the survey too. For example, a question of "If you wake up to find yourself suddenly having 80 billion worth of property, what will you do?" had Joe Chen choosing "Will not tell anyone. Silently, secretly be a rich person." She laughed and said "The best would be to find a reason to withdraw from the entertainment industry and hide overseas to live." And for question "When you find that your partner is one who does things only for his personal gain, what will you do?" Blue chose "Feel that myself is extremely unlucky, let nature take its course but will have a love that cannot be broken." He said that "Because I've fallen in love already. Most importantly is that I'm being myself." Joe however chose "Immediately break up." which is the same as many mainland netizens. Howeven, Taiwan netizens had 50% choosing "Will try hard to help him, believe in him and let him start over again." Additionally for "What will you do for the sake of marrying into the rich?" Joe chose "Let fate take its course and not force things. The important thing is not in whether you're rich." She explained that "I can earn money by myself. I don't want to rely on others to live." Blue on the otherhand chose "Will use some techniques but will not change his own character." As to what techniques? Blue laughingly said "Let the other party have some surprises in her life. Giving her gifts every so often!"
The end result of this test showed that Blue is more similar to the character "Xie Fu An" then Joe. Blue told her that "Your acting is good. Your actual character is very different from the drama character."

Filming for two months has made them good friends

Filming has taken place for nearly two months already and the two of them are having "close interactions". Blue said that "Before filming, I will often silently think and move into the drama character. So when Joe arrives, I will try to move to a corner and not let my eyes catch hers because chatting will take up some time." Joe laughed that "I feel that there should be no stress when filming so when I arrive at the scene, I'll start searching for Blue to chat to him and make him laugh."

So "blissfulness" to them is what? Blue answered "Traveling probably. I want to go Tibet to daydream." Joe at the side started to criticise "You're often daydreaming here too! Why go Tibet?" Blue then seriously replied "Its different. The feeling is very different." Joe then cheekily concluded "I'll give you my blessing in being able to go Tibet to daydream soon!"

I've never seen someone so into something." That's the confidence and hard work Jay Chou has towards music, it deeply influenced and touched Alan Kuo.

Eddie Peng responsible for his own dip in popularity

eddie peng

Contractual issues between Taiwanese pop idol Eddie Peng and his manager brought the duo to court. Despite being in court twice, they were unable to reach any consensus.

His manager said, "I will stop, at all costs, anyone who tries to ignore the rules and regulations of showbiz."

According to reports, Peng's contract was supposed to end only in July 2010 but he has not received any assignments for a long time. His manager had plans to extend Peng's contract, but the latter has been delaying his reply by saying that it is still a long way to end of the contract. The duo later found themselves amidst disagreements in terms of both assignments and income.

It was rumoured that Peng is disgruntled that the company has not been able to achieve the amount of income he has been promised, sparking off this court case.

The manager said, "He claimed to be a movie actor and declined to take on 'low-class' jobs. Can he blame me? Eddie, I've never done you wrong. You need to understand that you need luck to get famous."

The TV drama Wayward Kenting raised his popularity which was also fanned by rumours of his relationship with Taiwanese pop diva Jolin Tsai.

mark zhao

"Ying Xiong" Mark Zhao, his 1st time shooting a drama [Black and White] suffers the full hardship. For the first time he provides his voice for the soundtrack of the drama again suffering the full torment. After recording for 7 days and 7 nights he successfully completed it, almost turning the hero into a coward. He only dares give himself 60 points " I feel I can sing a lot better, being a singer really isn't easy".

[Black and White] director Cai Yue Xun has Mark Zhao famous with one push, allowing him also to develop his excellent singing. To take on the main theme song " 無賴正義", is the song writer Ian Chen's brother music group Color, which was specifically tailored for him. To break away from the drama's righteous image, Mark changes his clothes to leather pants and black boots, changing him to a rocker, more Man with sex appeal!

Before recording, Mark especially invited his dad Zhao Shu Hai to help him correct his pronunciations, and the previous 2 weeks he refrained from eating spicy and fried foods. Originally he likes to go to KTV to sing and revealed, normally he likes to sing Jay Chou and Wang Lee Hom songs.

Mark Zhao both acts and sings, is the treasure on Cai Yue Xun hands. On the contrary having brought out his own album "Zai Zai" Vic Zhou is “absent” from the soundtrack. The production team expressed that they gave all the songs to Zai Zai to listen, asking him to pick a song he wanted to sing, but in the end he wished to put all his concentration into his acting in the drama, so he did not participate in the soundtrack.

Cai Yue Xun personally took on the responsibility of becoming the soundtracks director, so busy he did not sleep for 3 days. He even found the movie "Secrets" (Starring Jay Chou) Thailand's gold award winner composer TJ to intervene, hoping that the soundtrack can bring to the drama the same high quality.

"No, it's just another headline for me." Have you heard of the incident? "If I know I won't say it out, but usually I really don't know.
