sherming yiusherming yiusherming yiusherming yiu

Sherming Yiu has been receiving numerous sexual harassment phone calls from a 17 years old Lin Chun Sing since Jan 25th this year. Some of the calls had a lot of moaning sound made by him, and sometimes, he asked if he could have sex with her. She tolerated the phone calls till Feb 24th before contacting the police. The police traced the call, and found that 11 calls were made from his mother's phone. Lin was arrested in April. He told the police that he was bored and wanted to have a bit of fun, that is why he did it.

Judge Ma Hon told him "You have an 18 year old sister, if someone does that to her, would you be angry? I don't understand your mentality, why did you call someone who is so much older than you?" Lin was nodding his head to show he understood . The lawyer pleaded on his behalf, stating that Lin knows his mistakes and he is willing to apologizes to Sherming. Even though Sherming had forgiven him through the media, the judge was not happy. He continued "You made those phone calls in the middle of the night and early mornings, your victim can't pretend nothing has happened. Although you are willing to apologize in court, have you thought about how she was feeling when you made those phone calls?"

Lin was sentenced to 100 hours community service. Sherming said she doesn't know whether it's a heavy sentence or not, but she respects the judge's decision. She reckoned if he really knows that he has done wrong and not to make the same mistakes again, she hope people will give him a chance since he is still very young.

Lin works as a delivery boy and in 2007 he was highly commented by the police department for handing in something he picked up on the road. He said Sherming has never done anything to him. He was just being playful and he regretted what he had done. At the moment, he is working and studying and hope he will be able to study abroad like his sister. Lin's parents promised they will look after him and go to church with him too.

S.H.E All Three are Crazy about Getting Married


It took a long time to schedule an interview with S.H.E. These three ladies were simply too popular right now. New songs, endorsements, commercial performances, their work was already scheduled all the way to the end of next year. Not long ago, they released their newest album [FM S.H.E]. This was the 11th album from S.H.E in the last 8 years. During the interview, each person was amazingly energetic even though the average age of the group was over 27 years old. There was not a single moment when they were not joking around noisily and their exuberance simply made one’s head spin. They said that S.H.E would not restrict themselves from flying solo however they would not disband. The greatest wish for each of them was to be married by the time they reached 30 years old.

The secret of “Keeping Fresh” was Freedom

A girl group in the Chinese music scene that was able to maintain its popularity for eight years. That in itself was already a legend in the making. And with their current level of popularity, their position was still as solid as ever. With regards to the secret of how S.H.E kept fresh, they who were both noisily boastful and at the same time a bit bewildered, all demonstrated the invincible “spirit of Ah-Q”.

Ella with her boyish personality expressed: [Actually speaking of keeping fresh, we did not pay any special thoughts of this matter. Because there is already three of us and our personalities are all very noisy very excitable. To us, no matter of what types of work, it is more like playing. When we sing, we are playing while we are singing. When we are performing or endorsing, we are so noisy that even our staff couldn’t stand it. Perhaps it is because we are always very happy so when people see us, they would be happy too.]

Hebe who was regarded as the “calm” one of the three, totally did not agree with what Ella said: [Hey, we are not comedians. We are popular is because we had never looked upon ourselves as celebrities. We are never pretentious. We just wanted to do our best to showcase ourselves.] And Selina who always pretended to be a lady beside them could not pretend any longer and exclaimed loudly: [You guys are so noisy. We are popular is because we are both talented and beautiful.]

When chatting with them, it took a long time to get to the main topics because it was hard to figure out which sentence out of them was serious. Interviewing them was happy but anxiety-ridden.

They, whose average age was 27 years old, were always so adorable, which unavoidably would make people feel that they were pretending to be youthful. They did not mind this type of thought at all. Selina shared: [We did not pretend to be adorable. Being adorable is not the direction that we are aiming for. Hey, we had always been constantly changing. Sometimes we are sexy and sometimes we are adorable. Our music also was never restricted to a particular style. We are very free, willing to attempt anything and also not afraid of failures. Fortunately, we have also been very lucky. The fans had always accepted our boldness. Our new song {Long Live Adorableness} is to promote to everyone to pretend to be adorable because pretending to be adorable is actually a very aerobic activity. Regardless of soul or body, one can be adorable forever.]

Encourages Flying Solo but Determined Not to Disband

As one of the most active groups in the Chinese music scene, S.H.E appeared in various territories within the entertainment circle. Most times the three of them were together like a set of triplets. However they were not restricted to only group activities like other groups. When they do things individually, each was just as fascinating. Particularly in hosting and in acting, all three had fairly good results. Therefore, the rumor of them disbanding also had never stopped.

When the reporters asked them if there was any possibility of them really disbanding, they laughed that the three of them was always in the situation of flying solo. Ella expressed: [We have already said that S.H.E has lots of freedom. We don’t want to give ourselves any type of restrictions or refuse any possibilities. All three of us had some work in dramas. Sometimes, we cannot ask the production company to include all three of us so when we each have our own work, we would become separate entities. I already flew solo when I acted in {The Rose}. Furthermore, we had always flown very hard and fast. Now Selina also has her own hosting jobs. Only Hebe remained loyal to music. She is in the midst of preparing for a new album of her own. However, flying solo does not represent that we are disbanding. There are some things that required S.H.E to be together. Our hearts are always together no matter what. We are happiest when the three of us are together. We have always advocated the model of flying solo without disbanding. This is one of our secrets of working in the entertainment circle.]

All Wanted to be Married by 30 Year Old

If one did not know that the age of all three was not young, it was hard to connect S.H.E with the idea of marriage, even though their luck with the opposite sex was very good and each of them had been rumored with super handsome guys. Many fans also felt that even without marriage, the three of them could still be together happily to old age.

When the reporters kept asking them the one thing they most wanted to accomplish, as if previously agreed, all three said that they wanted to get marry within the next two years. Hebe expressed: [We have never been super women nor do we think that we could even become that type of a person. Now we do what we like to do and hoped that we could continue to respect our current desires. Before I reach 30, I hope to meet a very good man and have a happy family. I think this is every girl’s dream. Even if we were married and have children, at that time, if everyone is still willing to accept S.H.E, we would still continue to work and still be working happily just like right now.]

Selina shared that S.H.E had a common requirement for their future other half: [We all hoped that each other’s “that person” could play along with us, could understand the cold jokes between us and could let us to do whatever we want to do at any given time.]

Jerry Yan suffering from insomnia; consults Zai Zai & Ella for help

jerry yan

Jerry Yan has filming drama and releasing album burning at both ends. With the immense amount of pressure, he started getting insomnia half a year ago. And he even consulted good friends Vic Zhou (Zai Zai) and Ella for remedies: “The scariest thing about insomnia is that your eyes are open till morning, and then you think about all the work you have to do, without getting any sleep.”

Yesterday, Jerry held an international fan meet at Yang Ming Shan. And 2000 seats were completely filled by fans from Japan, Hong Kong, Thailand, Korea etc. Each person had to pay 1000 yuan entrance fee, and the whole event earned over $2million. In order to avoid being suspected of ‘sucking gold’, JVR publicity manager Zhang Lan Yun expressed: “Minus the rent, hardware and software costs, and the company also has to make up the difference. If there’s any money left over, we will donate it to charity.”

At the event, Jerry told many cold jokes. When the host asked him about the character he plays in his new drama ‘Down With Love’, he replied: “In the drama, I play doraemon.” (translator note: drama and doraemon sounds similar when you pronounce it XD) And everyone exclaimed: “Oh so cold!” Jerry had anticipated this fan meet, but when he gets nervous, he tends to get insomnia. Zai Zai told him to take sleeping pills, and Ella recommended he take melatonin, but he feels that taking sleeping pills isn’t good for his health, so he tries to avoid it if he can.

When Jerry gets insomnia, his mood is also affected. There was once when he didn’t get enough sleep, he kept NG-ing and he was so angry he hammered the table. Director Ke reminded him: “When you don’t smile, everyone feels pressure.” And Jerry took this good advice, saying: “If my laughter can make everyone else happy, then I should change my work methods.”

But Jerry has also being infected by Ella’s bubbly personality. Yesterday, his attitude was very relaxed, and he did not reject taking photos and hugging fans. This made everyone cry out in happiness, initially he wasn’t going to sing his new songs, because it clashed with his just released album, but while Japanese fans dedicated the song ‘Meteor Rain’ to him, he sung along with them, and even encourage everyone to sing along, and the atmosphere was very warm and passionate.

Xiao S Taking Advantage of Jerry Yan During KangXi Special in Shanghai

jerry yan

Celebrity host of “Kang Xi Lai Le,” Xiao S, has been known for taking “advantages” (cough cough) of popular male stars on the show. The so-to-speak victims include Mark Zhao, who has recently shot to fame due to his more-than-outstanding performance in TV Drama “Black & White.” While all that is part of Xiao S’ unique MC style, it has nonetheless brought complaints from netizens.

At the Kang Xi Special stage in Shanghai two nights ago, Xiao S repeated her usual behaviors as she got a little touchy feely towards guests such as Jerry Yan, Show Lo, and Stanley Huang… with her husband Mike Xu looking from the audience. Jerry Yan agreed to hold Xiao S and spin around as a present for her 31st birthday; contrary to his usually cool attitude, Jerry held on for ten circles before letting go.

The day after the Kang Xi Special turned out to be Xiao S’ 31st birthday. Therefore, during the previous night’s show, Cai Kang Yong kept using “giving Xiao S a birthday present” as an excuse to allow opportunities for Xiao S to enjoy the physical contact with several guests. Even though her husband was sitting in the audience, Xiao S did not shy away from enjoying the time with them. When Jerry stepped on stage, she requested that he hold her and spin around three times.

Jerry took off his jacket right away and started turning in frenzy, causing Xiao S to scream. After 5 or 6 circles, he still did not stop. This is when Xiao S yelled: “Put me down! Put me down! I am about to throw up!” After being spinned around for 10 circles, Xiao S finally escaped. As she stumbled around, still dizzy, she complained to Jerry.

Getting a little “physical” with male guests has apparently become one of her “to-kill” tactics. She said “This is for the mainland audience to see the original KangXi flavor. The sponsor company even told me to feel free to be myself on stage.”

With her husband enjoying Xiao S having “fun” on stage, Xiao S yelled to him, “Sorry, Hubby. I am just doing this to earn the money.” After the show, Xiao S revealed that “of course he knew beforehand and appreciates the style of my hosting.” After the show was over, Xiao S, accompanied by her husband, spent her 31st birthday in Shanghai. Thirty or more friends, including Pace Wu, Makiyo, celebrated with her at the popular nightclub, Muse (owned by Hong Kong star, Carina Lau). She was reportedly already tipsy when she left.

Da S neglects Huang Xiao Ming, boat of love hits iceberg

da s

Peter Ho's first self produced and self directed drama series "Summer of Bubbles" boasts of a strong cast, comprising Da S, Huang Xiao Ming, Coco Chiang and Patina Lin. Huang Xiao Ming was rumoured to have special feelings towards Da S. However, on the evening of June 14, we spotted the team filming and there was a lack of interaction between the two of them. Both of them were polite to each other and it appears that it'll take some time for them to develop a romance.

Making up for lack of chemistry through rehearsing

"Summer of Bubbles" has been facing obstacle after obstacle since it started filming. First, there was the change of male lead from Peter Ho to Huang Xiao Ming. then Huang Xiao Ming delayed his arrival in Taiwan for filming, causing the production team to be rather tensed. On 14th, Huang Xiao Ming and Da S were rehearsing their lines on a street. He was dressed lavishly while she was plainly clothed. It appeared that they were not very well rehearsed and occasionally needed the director to step in to instruct them aboout their positions. There was also a scene where an extra would rush in and Huang Xiao Ming was to pull Da S along with him as he ran. They had to rehearse this quite a few times to get this perfect.

Lack of interaction makes it difficult to produce sparks of love

After filming, both of them went to chat with their own acquaintances. Da S was at on side stretching her back and even placed both of hands behind her neck as she rested her eyes. On the other hand, Huang Xiao Ming was standing behind a lamp post talking to someone else. The personal interaction between them is rare and few in between. It seems that there is still a long way to go if they wanted to develop a romance.

The director of "Summer of Bubbles" said, "Why would you say that things between Da S and Huang Xiao Ming are not going good? Didn't Huang Xiao Ming invite Da S along when he gave a treat of roasted meat the last time?" He said that artistes always go about doing their own things after filming, so one cannot say that their interaction is little based on this. However, we understand that it was because Hei Ren was there during the treat that they called Da S along.

Not sure if she really got electrified by Raymond, but when Ah Sa performed her new song "Two Missing One", when she was walking around the stage, she almost tripped and fell into the pool area, fortunately she had fast reaction and saved herself. After having deep feeling, Raymond did not forget to take Ah Sa's rumors to joke around with, he implied that she should go on "Beautiful Cooking", Ah Sa immediately fought back: "There were rumors that 'someone' was too busy to be a guest, so they looked for me! The friend's surname is Chung! (implying Linda Chung)" Raymond laughed and said that the person's surname is Cheng!

What about the reports saying that Yoyo plans for marriage? Yoyo frankly said that she has not talked about this topic yet.

anita yuen

Anita Yuen and Cecilia Yip were at TVB City yesterday shooting for "Club Sparkle". The contestants of this year's Miss Hong Kong Pageant have been criticized as the worst batch to date. As a former Miss Hong Kong winner Anita said "I haven't been paying attention to the Miss Hong Kong Pageant since 10 years ago. I was crowned the title in 1990. Speaking of next year it will be 20 years ago. But I feel TVB can give the girls a good makeover and make them look prettier. I didn't stand out from the other girls in the year I participated but the most important thing is to have self confidence on the night of the finals".

Currently it is not clear who will be crowning this year's Miss Hong Kong winner as Edelweiss Cheung is still frozen by TVB. Anita said "Being crowned the winner Edelweiss should respect the history of Miss Hong Kong. She should have thought clearly about it when she was participating in the pageant. Loretta Chu Ling Ling should crown the new winner". Anita revealed that she is more interested in the Mr Hong Kong contest and hopes to be a judge with Christine Ng.

Isabella Leong a few obstacles away from becoming a Li

isabella leong

Macau-born actress Isabella Leong may have borne Hong Kong tycoon Richard Li his first son, but that doesn’t give her a passport into the prestigious Li family.

Instead, Leong, 21, has some obstacles to overcome before she can marry into the family, Hong Kong media reported.

Leong’s modest background and her academic qualifications are her biggest downfall. She dropped out of secondary school to help support her family. She was talent spotted and started modelling at the age of 12 before entering showbiz at 15.

This has created a disparity in educational level between her and the Lis, and they hope Leong will further her studies. Fortunately, the actress has already made plans to do so. Since taking a break from showbiz last year, she has travelled to the United States to learn English as well as to further her education.

The Lis are also hoping that both Leong and two-month-old Ethan will return to Hong Kong and stay at the family’s mansion. Not only will they be able to spend more time with their grandson, it will also give them the opportunity to get to know Leong and allow her to assimilate into their lifestyle.

Leong, who is now in San Francisco, has indicated that she will be returning to Hong Kong with Ethan to meet with the Lis. Richard Li, the chairman of Hong Kong telecom giant PCCW, added that he will be bringing the pair back at the end of the month, quashing rumours that Leong could settle in Singapore.

While the final obstacle may be out of Leong’s control - her compatibility with the Li family - the signs are positive.

According to a geomancer, Leong has nothing to worry about as her features indicate signs of prosperity and wealth, and this can only be good news for both her and the Lis.

Since giving birth to Ethan in April, Leong has been ‘rewarded’ with two mansions in San Francisco and HK$50 million in cash, totalling more than HK$200 million. The Lis have also thrown in an entourage of care-givers for the latest addition to the family. Ethan will have five bodyguards, four full-time nannies and a personal attendant assigned to him.

There has been speculation that a 10-digit pre-nuptial agreement is in place to take care of Leong’s future needs and also to prevent any “potential problems” that could arise in the future.

Raymond Lam's Female Partner with the Best "Feel"... Tavia Yeung

raymond lam

I have been working with many actresses before, and most with Tavia. Our friendship start developing from the same acting class, we were classmate, she is straightforward, so she gets along with male classmates, everyone treated her like brother. I have the best feeling when filming with her. We have that 'mo qi' (chemistry) which I don't have with other people, we just look at each other eyesight, we know how to act. Most times when we are filming together, no matter how long our lines are, we can done in one take. Remember when we were filming GF, we have a scene where we had an argument, the lines were very long but when we were actually filming it, it was very smooth, and we were so in to it, we even had tears (yan shi shi), it is not often to have such a good feel in one take. Can feel that the whole body was shaking, so it is very memorable.

Caption 1: The most scene with Tavia was TOB, I think our appearances do match to act as a couple!

Caption 2: In MR, we were sibling, not much scene together. But behind the scene, when we having a break, we always chat and play games!

HK hunk envies S'pore actor's wedded bliss

kevin cheng

HE is widely considered to be one of Hong Kong television's most handsome hunks.

But Kevin Cheng feels that his good pal, Singaporean actor and host Ben Yeo is so much luckier.

That is, when it comes to love.

'I believe in fate and Ben's really lucky to be able to find someone who can be his love for life,' the 39-year old actor told The New Paper.

Ben became a first-time father in May this year, and his son Javier's godfather is none other than Kevin. Does witnessing his buddy's bliss make him feel like settling down?

'I'd love to, but you can't rush things like that,' he said with a chuckle, adding that some people are fortunate enough to find the right one, while 'others spend their whole lives searching'. He said he preferred to just let nature take its course.

The bachelor had been previously linked to TVB actresses Niki Chow, 29, and recently, Charmaine Sheh, 34, his co-star in detective series Forensic Heroes II.

Kevin has never admitted to either relationship outright.

While it took a lighthearted drama, Under The Canopy Of Love, to propel him to stardom (he won Best Actor at the 2006 TVB Anniversary Awards for his role in that series), he said he always relishes new challenges.

'I've done several intense, dramatic roles, like in The Ultimate Crime Fighter (where he plays a disturbed, bisexual murderer) and Last One Standing (where he plays an ex-convict) and loved them.

'But after doing a string of such characters, I hope for a change and to do something different, like a swordfighting drama or a laugh-out-loud comedy.'

Kevin is currently filming the period drama Iron Horse Seeking Bridge, which also stars rumoured couple Kenneth Ma and Nancy Wu.

Nancy Wu 'likes', 'clicks with' stars but won't reveal whom she really loves

nancy wu

SLENDER Nancy Wu might not have the liver capacity to gulp down a half-yard of beer in a single sitting.

But there's one thing she definitely doesn't lack in her life - men.

The 27-year-old Hong Kong actress was in town last weekend, along with fellow TVB stars Kevin Cheng and Myolie Wu, to attend the finals of Beds Beer Battle 2009.

Held at Beds KTV Pub, the event was a competition to discover the fastest beer drinker in Singapore.

She watched in amazement as contestants effortlessly washed down beer at breakneck speed.

After the event, as the doe-eyed beauty sipped gracefully on champagne - clearly her preferred drink - with her colleagues, The New Paper took the chance to quiz her about recent rumours surrounding two male celebrities.

Yes, we're talking about not one, but two men.

The first is boyish South Korean singer-actor Nathan Lee, 25, member of boyband TAKE and part of the cast of A Starry Night, the new subway drama slated to be screened at train stations in Singapore and China later this year.


Nathan and Nancy were dance partners in the second season of reality talent show Strictly Come Dancing, the Asian version of Hollywood's Dancing With The Stars.

Their chemistry was undeniable as the pair waltzed, tango-ed and rhumba-ed their way to third prize in the competition, even scoring full marks on two occasions.

Nancy had no qualms about heaping praise on him.

'I must say Nathan is indeed the best partner I've had at work so far,' said Nancy with a grin.

'It must be fate's arrangement that we got to dance together on the show.

'Somehow, we just clicked very well and were able to communicate with ease.

'I give him a full 100 marks for his dedication and commitment.'

As for Nathan's confession of love for her during an interview, she laughed and admitted that she initially found his affection 'odd', but eventually didn't think too much about what he said.

'He grew up in America and therefore is more Westernised and direct in his behaviour,' she said.

'We spent two months on the show and saw each other literally every day, so it's inevitable that we became close as friends.

'He's now pursuing his career in mainland China, I do hope he comes back to Hong Kong some time though!'

Another of her rumoured beaus is goofy-looking 35-year-old fellow TVB actor Kenneth Ma

The Hong Kong media is rife with reports that the two got to know each other on Strictly Come Dancing.

According to reports, 'sparks flew despite them being on different teams' and they have 'already been secretly dating for nearly a year'.

'Ahh, it's pure gossip, we are just very good friends,' was Nancy's calm reply.

She said, however, that Kenneth's 'down-to-earth disposition' was one of his most attractive traits.

'Who doesn't like a man who is grounded and practical?'

Then, with a sigh, she added: 'These days, good guys are really hard to come by.'


Local fans with placards sporting her name were seen stationed outside Beds KTV as they patiently waited for her arrival at the Beer Battle event, which was by invitation only.

Last December, she bagged the Most Improved Actress award at TVB's 41st Anniversary Awards, a sign that she had finally hit the big time after eight years in the television industry.

'It's great that my efforts have been recognised,' said Nancy.

'I've been very lucky too, to get the challenging part in (period drama) The Silver Chamber Of Sorrows where I got to play the fourth wife of veteran actor Paul Chun.

'The character I portrayed in it was a vivacious hostess who spent much of her rough life in seedy nightclubs. It was definitely a refreshing change for me, as well as for my fans who have followed my career all this while.'

Single eyelids Mark Zhao; Suspects himself of being Korean birth

mark zhao

Mark Zhao had once suspected that he was a Korean birth. He said, "Because both of my parents have double eyelids, only I don't!" Yesterday, he went on and performed quite well by answering six questions correctly in a row, proving that he doesn't have just the look. He also helped redeem his father's pride as his father Zhao Shu Hai only answered one question right last time.

Mark Zhao graduated from University of Victoria in Canada. His Chinese is superb and he reveals that he must thank his father Zhao Shu Hai for that, "My father has always forced me to copy the lyrics of the national anthem to practice Chinese. I even had to fax it back to Taiwan for him to see." The show's production crew purposely asked Mark Zhao the same question that his father Zhao Shu Hai failed on, "Which mountain can you see the farthest when you're at the top?" The choices were: Taishan, Fuji Mountain, and Yushan. He successfully guessed the right answer, which was Yushan. Host Hu Gua couldn't help and complement, "You're smarter than your father!"

Speaking about 'Swine flu", Natalis said he was not worried about the spreading of H1N1 in Hong Kong. He told reporters "Not to worry, 'Swine flu" is different from SARS, nobody will died from that. As long as you pay attention to personal hygiene and wash your hands frequently, you will be alright." Natalis is working on a script with a few young guys, hoping to produce a film. Charmaine arrived at the concert with Virginia, she expressed that she was lucky to get a ticket as TVB was allocated 6 tickets only. Charmaine denied she accompanied Virginia for the concert. In fact, she just finished filming "Beyond The Realm of Conscience". She originally planned to visit her mother in Hawaii but instead, her mom is coming to see her in Hong Kong due to the outbreak of 'Swine flu'.

Marco Ngai and wife arrived at the concert together and said that this is his first time to see "Air Supply" in concert. He went on to say that he has been busy filming an ancient TV series in the mainland and came back to Hong Kong specially to watch "Air Supply" in concert. He will be going back to continue his work after the show. Talking about his ex girl friend Joyce Tang who is rumored to be dating Derek Kok, Marco said he hasn't had any contact with her for while, but he knows Derek for a long time and they suited each other very well.

Claire's daughter is 6 weeks old already. She showed her lovely baby's picture on her phone to the reporters. Claire has been busy looking after her daughter and it is very rare that she can spare the time to watch a concert with her husband. Claire told reporters that she needs slim down 10 pounds in weight as she is hoping to be the spokesperson for a slimming company.
