Andy Lau reveals himself: Carol Chu is pregnant

Andy Lau

Andy Lau & Carol Chu’s 24-year relationship was exposed after they were seen holding hands in public. Now, there are further rumours suggesting that they had already registered for marriage last year on the 23rd of June. Yesterday, Andy posted on his ‘Andy’s World’ blog site, first posting up an entry titled ‘I’m sorry’, expressing his apologies. Later, he indirectly confirmed the marriage rumour; at 9:27pm, he posted another entry titled ‘A belated confession’, and threw another bombshell: Carol Chu is pregnant.

Yesterday noon, while Andy was in Zhe Jiang, he took some time out to post on his ‘Andy’s World’ blog site. He expressed: “I am ashamed that I did not keep my promise in telling everyone first, embarrassing my family, friends, and media friends who trusted me, I’m sorry.. I’m currently busy with work, and can’t make a statement, but I will explain everything soon - Andy.”

A belated confession; confirming marriage & pregnancy rumours

Later that night, Andy posted another entry titled ‘A belated confession’, and he revealed: “… I thought that I could wait until everything goes smoothly, and the fetal is stable, before telling everyone, but now I have made things even more complicated…” It seems he is hinting at the truth, which is; in order to accommodate Carol’s old-age pregnancy, which was in accordance to the Fertility Act in Hong Kong, they decided to register for marriage in America.

Andy’s boss Peter Lam also confirmed the marriage rumours; Andy is currently working in China, the night before yesterday, he did a show recording in Hang Zhou, and he danced and sung on the stage. Yesterday, he filmed a MV outdoors, and was completely invested in the role of an artist, and did not affected by his private life being prominently reported.

Leon Lai and Gaile Lok secretly married a year and a half ago

Leon Lai

March of last year, Oriental Daily discovered that Leon Lai and Gaile Lok officially registered for marriage in Maldives. At the time the couple denied to such thing, but paper cannot cover fire (secrets cannot be covered), yesterday it was finally exposed that they were married on March 9th of last year in Las Vegas, United States. This proves that the exclusive was accurate. As for Andy Lau who had always been denying that he's marriage and Miriam Yeung was discovered to have secretly gotten married in Las Vegas, but the three of them kept their mouths shut yesterday.

As the saying goes: "paper cannot cover fire", the truth will eventually be exposed! Last year in March, Oriental Daily exclusively reported that Leon Lai and Gaile have already gotten married, but at the time they did not have enough evidence to prove it accurate. It was also revealed that Leon and Gaile were to hold their million dollar wedding in Maldives. Leon's father responded to the rumor and could not help but to express his sweet smile. Just based on these findings, the couple denied to such thing, while Gaile was in Taiwan for public events, she expressed: "I am not married." This year Leon held a concert and had weddings as the theme, he continued to insist his previous respond: "No, No, No."

Although Leon refused to reveal if he's married Gaile, but yesterday Reporters in the United States found something surprising at the Clark County, Nevada website. It stated that the couple arrived in Las Vegas on March 7, 2008 and registered for marriage on March 9th under the English names LEON, LAI MING and LAI GIA, proving the news discovered by Oriental Daily true. It is understood that she is a Sino-Vietnamese half-cast, that was born in Macau and, at one point, she revealed that her chinese surname was Lai, but as for why Gaile's surname was originally Lai Oriental Daily re-investigated records to find out. They found that during a period of time last year, Leon was doing public promotions for a movie, it is clear that they were in love and rushed to get married.

Early yesterday morning reporters were waiting outside the front door of Leon and Gaile's detached house in Sheung Shui, but unfortunately the involved people did not emerge. Calls to Leon's mobile phone were diverted to voice mail and, due to his inbox quickly becoming full, we were unable to leave a message. At about 6pm in the afternoon, we suddenly saw Leon driving his babysitter back home but not long after Leon drove back out with an empty car. However, he said to the reporters waiting outside, "She won't come out, you can all finish work now."

Associated artists sworn to secrecy

As we know Leon, yesterday, left very early to go filming, yet he did not let the disclosure of his marriage affect his mood, which shows just how professional he is. While the East Asian entertainment industry were responding to Andy Lau and Miriam Yeung's respective marriages, Leon decided to expose his own. He points out that apart from Andy and Miriam, there is another married artist that has yet to be made public. He also said that the reporters may as well investigate it, which totally made it obvious that he was referring to himself and Gaile.

Yesterday reporters contacted Ms.Sam, a spokesperson of Leon's record company, however, she did not reply. It seems that even associated artists Janice Wei and Charles Ying have received an "order" - that is to keep it on the down low. As for the modelling company Gaile is with, they said that, "Today we have not seen any related reports, really? We're not sure. (Not letting other models getting married?) Of course not, however, we have not heard her talk about it before. Getting married is a joyous matter, we're sure that she would say.

Hacken Lee looks for white pants for carrying the "Torch"

Hacken Lee

Hacken Lee and Gigi Fu attended Prevention of Cruelty to Animals "Animal Welfare Parade,"opening ceremony yesterday. Hacken has got a Golden Retriever, he admitted that ever since his son was born, he has spent less time with his dog. He also stressed that he wouldn't give him away although the dog is isolated from his son who has sensitive skin. Hacken heard he has a part in carrying the torch, but the weather is hot and the child is too small to be under the sun, therefore he won't be seeing him carrying the torch. It is a pity because when his son grows up, he may not have a chance to see it. Hacken went on to say the organization is very strict with dress code, he will have to wear a plain white pants underneath his short because he doesn't want people to see he is wearing a "Teddy bear" pants, even worse if he is wearing "Spiderman" or "Superman" pants.

Talking about David Tsui who had passed away the other day, Hacken said he heard that he has been very ill from Alan Tam, he felt really sad. Now he heard David has died, he felt even worse. Hacken said David was a lovely guy, but he often pretended to be a wicked man. His death maybe a blessing in disguise for him because he had suffered so much for so long.

Khalil Fong's "Timeless Live in Hong Kong 2009" concert first show

Khalil Fong

Khalil Fong held his "Timeless Live in Hong Kong 2009" in three consecutive days in Wan Chai. Last night, it was his first show, implementing less talk and more songs to the audience. His parents and several friends came to show their support including rumored girlfriend Fiona Sit. Fiona attended with her other rumored boyfriend Jaycee Chan.

But Fiona sat with Stephanie Cheng and Pakho Chau, while Jaycee sat with another friend. Later when Reporters requested that the two take pictures together, Jaycee embarrassingly denied, but Fiona was generous and stood up for the picture. Seeing this Jaycee also went along and took the picture with Fiona, but afterwards he quickly left. Seems like Jaycee wanted to greet his other friend. When the show started, the two did not avoid to sit with each other, but Jaycee left during the encore.

At Khalil's concert, he brought several different musical instruments with him including a piano, electric guitar and a guitar. Also he did not change his outfit at all during the concert except in the encore. Khalil sang many of the golden songs by his idol Michael Jackson, using "Bad" for the opening. In addition, he sang a few Cantonese songs and many other Mandarin and English songs. Khalil frankly said on stage that he's very nervous because its the first time he's singing them in public. Although the concert did not have much fancy designs, but the atmosphere was still very lively. Female fans shouted loudly praising that he was handsome, Khalil heard this and smiled: "I always hear someone say I'm handsome, what do you mean? It is wrong!" During the encore, he ran off the stage and towards the audience to shake hands with them, leading to a mob of fans running up towards the front.

David Tsui died of cancer aged 54

David Tsui

David Tsui (大傻) aged 54, passed away at 11:45pm last night at Hong Kong Baptist Hospital following nose cancer, which has spread to his liver. His friends and family were at his bedside.

At 11pm last night, his friends included Eric Tsang, Nick Cheung, Fat mom (Maria Cordero) etc were all at the hospital. It was planned a press conference would be held at midnight, but the media waited till 2am before they were told David had died.

David came from a poorfamily background, he is the forth among five brothers. He left school at the age of 13, found a job as an "extra" for Shaw's Brother when he was 15. Afterwards, he moved over to work for Golden Harvest for a few years. In 1978, he was discovered by Danny Lee who gave him a part in the movie "Final Justice". playing the role called (大傻), hence his nick name. As David was tall and look fierce, he always acted as villain, he did over few hundreds movies in his life time, included "Prison On fire", "God Of Gamblers" and in 2007 he acted in "C+Detective" which was his last film. Among his TV series, he acted in "The Vigilante In The Mask" and "A Taste Of Love".

David and his family live in Sai Kung. He was elected as the representative of Nam Wai village in 2003 and was re-elected 5 times till 2007. In 2004, he was diagnosed as having terminal nose cancer, and it has spread to his lungs. After chemotherapy, he was stable for a while, but he had lost his taste bud and could not secrete saliva and his right ear only had 2% hearing. David 's illness has deteriorated since last year and his cancer cells had spread to his livers. He died weighing only 100 pounds.

Eric was by his bedside the other night. He told reporter he went to the hospital straight after he attended an event. David was already unconscious; friends at the hospital all said that they couldn't belive David had gone downhill so quickly. They were hoping he could last till the morning. Two nights ago, Alan Tam went to see David at 8 pm, straigt from the airport. David was able to talk, the doctor gave his a morphine injection and said he might not regain consciousness again.

Eric said David didn't want to sleep for 24 hours before he died. Maybe he didn't want to go. The doctor didn't want him to suffer, therefore he gave him the injection to release his pain and suffering. David couldn't talk afterwards, Eric said to him to let go. Reporter asked if David was very thin? Eric said, not too bad and the whole process was quick. Eric reckoned sometime it is better to go quickly and peacefully instead of suffering for months. He revealed that last time he saw David, he was full of beans, saying "Electrocute that guy (cancer), he can't compete with me." Eric said David died very peacefully and he was still a big guy. Eric has asked a Buddhist monk to performed a Buddhist death ritual by hie bed side.

In fact the doctor had stopped giving him any chemotherapy since last week because he knew about his prognoses. David felt he had nothing else to do in hospital, insisted to discharge home to visit his friends and family. Two days ago, he developed a fever, and was re-admitted to the hospital. David was most worried about leaving his 10 years old son. Talking about his funeral, Eric expressed that all his friends would help out if his family agreed. Michael Mui was in America when he heard the news, he also said he would help with the funeral arrangement when he comes back.

Eric and David have known each other for a long time. Following the movie "Greatest Lover", they were even closer friends. David was a member in the star football team, Eric said he was a loyal friend; although he looked fierce, he was caring and had a very kind heart. A lot of people in the entertainment circle always went to him for help if they had any problem, such as losing a car. If the car was still around in Hong Kong, David would find it. Eric disclosed that David liked eating and drinking in the mainland the past few years as he was busy working there. It may well be the among of alcohol he consumed that had affected his health. Eric said a meeting will be held tomorrow to decide if Hong Kong Performing Artistes Guild will organize his funeral. It will be a Buddhist ceremony.

Charmaine Sheh feels hopeless sometimes

Charmaine Sheh

Many Hong Kong Movie award winners have said when they become actors they become passionate. When their acting reaches an established level they recieve recognition. But when the market is bad, they can only wait for luck. Charmaine Sheh is a Miss Hong Kong 2nd Runner up and also an actress. In TVB's 2006 Anniversary Award Ceremony she was awarded a double and recieved the TV Queen title. Reaching the top of her career, she was still shooting TV series one after the other. The results are not disappointing either. When someone gets famous they also become a topic of discussion whether its about rumors, personality and not getting along with others.

She said "If you achieve alot you will also lose many things. There are advantages and disadvantages. The first thing is that you can maintain your popularity. But the disadvantage is that many of the things being said are untrue. It is quite confusing. You either love it or hate it. I have no control over it, so let it be. If I haven't been in the news lately then thats okay, If you're discussing about me then say what you like. I cannot do anything about it".

Charmaine has been in the industry for 12 years. Society and technology has also improved. She expressed that she has recently injured her lower back. As a reporter, I was afraid that extreme discussions may increase her movement and affect her back pain.

Miss Hong Kong 1997 Charmaine Sheh has become a popular TVB Fa Dan to date. Currently TVB series "You're Hired has peaked ratings of 33 points. She has also completed the shooting for TVB Grand production "Beyond the Realm of Conscience" and taken a 1 month holiday. While taking time off she would be able to do things she didn't have time to do such as spending 3 hours for a magazine shoot, have dinner with friends she hasn't seen for a year, stay at home to watch TV and take a flight to Hawaii to visit her Mom etc. "I cannot totally rest because I have too many social gatherings with friends. Hong Kong is a small place, yet the Paparazzi's are too much. Especially during this century, don't you think there aren't any celebrities? Because of the way they are treated by the paparazzi's. How can there be any left?

The First step in becoming an actress

Charmaine made the first step to becoming an actress. "When they first asked me if I was interested in auditioning to become an actress, I didn't think about it and said [Of Course I will try]. Why did I want try? Actually I wanted to try a lot of new things. The Miss Hong Kong Pageant was over, yet I recieved an award. Would I need do charity work everyday? Even if I do, it would just be for 1 year. I was just feeling very curious and playful when I filmed my first few TV series. People said that my acting was poor but I had already given my best. I had limited knowledge of acting and no acting experience. That's why it was average, I needed to have more experience to gain the acting skills. I felt that maybe this industry wasn't right for me and that maybe I should change industries. I had these thoughts even though I already signed a 3 year artist contract with TVB. One year I would shoot 100 episodes of TV series. How would I have time to think about these things? I would just go home and sleep. When I hadn't yet finished shooting a series, I would need to shoot another one after. It was continuous. The company did not give up on me. They offered me many opportunties to play different roles, so that I was able to discover which type of role could make me shine".

My personality is not suitable for this industry. In the past I was very quiet. I never had the ability to perform. When I was studying they asked me to perform in a school play. I said No, will people laugh at me? Perhaps it was because I studied in a girls school, the best thing would be not to approach or look at me".

Do My Best

In "Flying Fox of Snowy Mountain" she played the role of Miu Yeuk Lan. She stated that she only had to act weak. But in "Return of the Cuckoo" Kwan Hou was just like being herself. While shooting "Country Spirit" she realised she was able to get into character as Sun Fung. "I am very lucky that all the series I had accepted to fim had good storylines. Especially [War and Beauty], I had a lot of fun. The scenes consisted mainly of inner emotions". She did her best to act in those scenes. While the paparazzi's were reporting which cast members didn't get along. "[War and Beauty] I don't remember much about that now. Do you have anything else to talk about? Why would you not get along with so many people? These things I have no control over and I will not care. I am already controlling things I have control over which is to portray my roles well. Also how to enjoy my time when I am filming and making others around me feel comfortable. I will not handle anything regarding TV ratings or any news reports".

High Definition

TVB have already entered the High Definition TV century. Charmaine says "Yes it's quite scary. There are advantages and disadvantages. The whole picture looks 3D and more clearer. It looks more beautiful but the lighting technician has a very important role in this. If you have pimples they will appear clearly on the screen. I don't really take care of that, but I will do facials. It's very important to have enough rest. But you will not have enough time to rest while filming. Sometimes when I take off my makeup, I will put on a face mask.

fahreneheit taiwan band

The passing of Typhoon Morakot is inarguably one of the worst disasters to hit Taiwan in the past 50 years. Celebrities from all over Asia including Taiwan, Hong Kong, and China are actively rallying the public for more donations to aid the suffering victims.

Taiwanese pop idol group, Fahrenheit, earnestly appealed to their fans for help and donations when they got wind of the devastating news. Inspired by their appeals, their appeals for help were met with an overwhelming response from their fans. Their generous donations were enough to fill three large lorries, with as much as 3.5tonnes of relief items donated over a course of just five days.

In response to the active donations made by their fans, band member Aaron Yan expressed, "There are many overseas fans who are unable to donate relief-items. They have been leaving messages on discussion boards in hopes that the company can help them with it. Actually, everyone can make donations to the Red Cross foundation or the World Vision organization."

Apart from taking time off to participate in the televised fundraiser event, the four-member group each bought 50 boxes of daily necessities for the affected Taiwanese citizens. The group also decided to donate the profits made from their Taipei concert to the relief fund.

"This fundraising activity has really touched me. I hope everyone can continue to make donations and help successfully rebuild the lives of these victims," said Jiro Wang. In appreciation for their fan's unyielding support, Fahrenheit promised to present fans with an exciting and spectacular concert for their Nanjing concert in the Olympic stadium on September 5.

Fala Chen - Has Never Concealed Herself

fala chen hong kong girl

Fala Chen is first runner-up for Miss Chinese International 2005. After entering the entertainment business to become an artiste, she has had many rumours, and she was once labeled as "hau jing" by the media. It wasn't until last year's "Moonlight Resonance" that she played the mute role of Ah Hing that the audience have started to accept her, and her "goon jung yuen" have increased. "There are many things that require you to slowly to understand.

There are many of these things in life that are like this. In the beginning, there are many things and many people that can easily be deceived by, but people can be deceived for a long time. As time grows, other people will see the clear picture. I am the same person in front and behind the camera, I will not conceal it. I cannot stop the media from writing about me. In order for the audience to change their views about me, they can listen to my interviews, go to my blog, or meet me in person". The entertainment circle is a game, and although Fala understands the rules, she still reminances her past lifestyle. "I frequently reminance the past because before entering the business, it was very happy going to school. All I thought about was getting enrolled in a good school, and later I would think about working for a big company, and earning a lot of money those sorts of dreams. It was simple and happy. I have never imagined the lifestyle that I have now. I am still processing it. There are new things everyday, and that includes success and pressure. However, [being an artiste] does not have the full of dream kind of feeling when I was in school where I would fascinate about future".

Happy about Love Life

After entering the business for five years, Fala has had many opportunites, and she has filmed over ten TV series. Recently, she had taken on the role of "Laughing So" in "Turning Point". She laughs, "When I was discussing about this character with the company, and meeting with the director, I didn't know that there was so many competitors [for the role], and I wasn't thinking about competing for the role. It wasn't until I was confirmed to play the role that I knew that so many people wanted it. I felt very sudden and shocked. I will cherish this opportunity, and do my best. I will do the same for filming series and filming movies, I will try my best to work at the crew's pace because movie film are expensive, so it does not allow much time for me to think about my wrongs. After filming this movie, I would like to have more opportunities to continue and film movies because one [movie] is not enough to fulfill the feeling of acting".

Other than work, Fala's love life is stable. Although she has never admitted her relationship with Sit Sai Hang (Neway karaoke owner's son), but when asked about her love life, she smiled sweetly, and said, "I'm happy about my love life. Actually, I am very fortunate because the people I have encountered are very good guys, and I've never been deceived before. The filming of sad, painful, and bothered love life in series, have never happened to me in reality. They are all happy. To be loved is a very fortunate and happy thing". Earlier, Fala went scuba diving in Hawaii for a week and got a tan after the filming of "Legend of Pu Song Ling". "I haven't seen my parents for a long. I had holidays, so I went back to the states and visited them. I also went scuba diving to get charged up".

Bosco Wong will save money to get married

bosco wong tvb actor

Bosco Wong entered the entertainment industry in the year 2000 and it's already 9 years. He has mainly focused on acting. Since debuing in TVB series "At the Threshold of An Era" and "The Awakening Story" . He played minor roles such as a body guard and male gigolo, leading to become one of TVB's popular Siu Sangs of today. In 2005 he was awarded "Most Improved Actor Award" for his performance in "War of In-Laws".

Recently his role in "Burning Flame III" is quite major. You cannot under estimate his willpower and he has certainly established good results in his career to date. Last year he entered the music industry and released an album. (Will he use Raymond Lam as his target?) He said "I do not dare to think that I will have my own concert because I am not ready for it. I remember when Ms Lok asked me to audition for singing and I thought she was just joking. To be able to become a professional singer and release my own album, I thought I was dreaming all along. I wouldn't dare to think about having my own concert yet. I will work hard on my next album".

Hopes to develop his movie career

As for his future direction, Bosco hopes to have a breakthrough in the movie industry. He said "Although I have filmed movies before, I have rarely been involved. I would like to see if I have more opportunties. I don't mind playing any type of roles. No matter if it's evil or ugly I really don't mind. As long as it can make me shine". When discussing about being a singer and movies, Bosco appeared to be trembling with fear. However when talking about his main talent, acting he talked on and on. "I put a lot of effort in my performance in "Burning Flame III". It was really hard work. The weather was hot and humid. I performed many dangerous stunts myself. Although it was tiring I hope people noticed my efforts".

You can say that Bosco has targets in his working career and is very hard working. But when discussing his love life, he immediately appeared like a soft skinned snake. His answers would always be "leave it to fate", "Deal with it later", "I haven't thought about it that much" etc. When mentioning his mysterious relationship with Myolie Wu that seemed real, he said "We have never dated before. I don't understand why they would say we have broken up. But this is written by the media. I am used to it now and I won't have a big reaction. I won't feel unhappy. Yet I cannot control it". (Has he thought about when he will get married?) "I really haven't thought about this. When I was young I have considered whether I will marry the girl I was dating. But as I got older I started to not think about marriage, I think communication is most important. I have yet to find a suitable partner. I will deal with that later. I have to save money for a while. I have to earn a 7 digit amount before I even consider to get married".

Bosco has been in the industry for many years and although he has given specific answers related to his love life. There are still cracks in his responses. When the reporter asked him how many times he has dated while in the industry, he originally wanted to answer but had to rethink. He replied "hmmm....after entering the industry...hmmm..this's really hard to answer". His answer clearly shows that there is something more to it.

Talks of Stephen Chow's retirement dispelled

stephen chow

Following the resignation of many close partners and friends from his company, the exclusive spokesperson for Stephen Chow, Wei Dasen, announced his coming resignation a few days ago. As Chow recently rejected the opportunity to direct and act in the Hollywood production of The Green Hornet, talk is that the famous comedian might be retiring soon to concentrate on his property business.

As Chow's spokesperson, Wei made an official press announcement a few days ago that his resignation will take effect from 15 August onwards. Wei also stated that he will concentrate on building up his new career. The recent departure of his many close partners sparked off rumours of Chow's retirement plans.

As he is still Chow's spokesperson, Wei stepped forth and dispelled the rumours, "Everyone please do not worry. Stephen will not change careers and is currently discussing about an animated film for CJ7 with other companies. This can also be considered as one of his future work plans. Stephen is also currently in America discussing about some movies. How can he be retiring or changing professions?"

Wei continued to reveal that the Chinese star has been busy with his booming property business. Apart from retirement speculations, the media also reported that Chow's partners have left the company due to various disputes at work. However, these partners have started to step out and defend Chow. They explained that Chow have been continuously encouraging them to take up and try out for other good projects.

Tian Qiwen, one of Chow's ex-working partner said that it is not Chow's style to film a movie just because he wanted to produce one. Chow is said to produce his work based on his own inspirations and will not make do with anything lesser. Apart from Tian, Danny Chan also spoke up, "Everyone is merely leaving Chow's company. There are no dispute or unhappiness. I have been brainstorming with Chow for some new movie ideas. If there is a good script, I will definitely want to work together with him again."

Vic Zhou hopes Da S will find true love

vic chou

According to Hong Kong media reports, Vic Zhou (Zai Zai) has recently been appointed as the Hong Kong ambassador for the United Nations’ Children’s Fund (UNICEF). Earlier when he attended an event in Hong Kong, he revealed that he hopes his old love Da S will find true love as soon as possible, at the same time he also denied rumours of Fan Bing Bing ‘electrifying’ him.

Zai Zai will give his full support for the upcoming charity event, organised by UNICEF to help fund-raise for the victims from the Si Chuan earthquake. He expressed that if he has the opportunity in the future, he will personally go and visit the local children.

Zai Zai, who loves children, previously pledged that he would get married and have children at 25. Now he’s realized that that’s unrealistic. He, who is already 28 still remains single, and he sighed saying that this is all up to fate. He said: “My family isn’t rushing me, because my older brother already has a child. At the moment, I wish to concentrate on my work, everything else depends on fate.” Does he have an ideal girlfriend in mind? “My other half cannot rely on her appearance alone, the interactions between us is what’s most important.”

Since he broke up with Da S, both their love lives have often been the media’s focus. He said: “Rumours will affect my work, if because of rumours we have to maintain our distance from each other, then that’s a shame.” Regarding the rumours of Fan Bing Bing ‘electrifying’ him during filming, Zai Zai said: “No, her eyes are so big, she electrifies anything she looks at! Actually, I quite admire her, she’s still so young but has already achieved so much.”

Other than this, he also sparked rumours with his co-star Ivy Chen in ‘Black & White’, but he stressed that they are only friends.

Although his own love life hasn’t landed, Zai Zai is still concerned about his old love Da S’s situation. Ever since the 2 broke up, Da S has sparked rumours with Peter Ho & Louis Koo. Zai Zai revealed that he hopes she will find her other half soon, and will definitely be happy for her: “She’s already an adult, knows how to choose, as long as she feels that that person is good for her, then that’s fine.”

jet li

CHISHAN—Chinese action star Jet Li unloaded relief supplies and comforted typhoon survivors Saturday as Taiwan struggled to cope with floods and landslides that may have left up to 500 dead.

Wearing a Red Cross baseball cap, the film hero helped unload boxes of food from trucks. He appealed for patience with government relief efforts, which have faced criticism for being slow and inadequate.

"It will get better. Everybody is working very hard. We should have more understanding and give more encouragement," Li told reporters in a shelter in hard-hit southern Kaohsiung county.

Li, a World Health Organization goodwill ambassador, clapped in time as as survivors sang traditional aboriginal songs.

Li and Hong Kong star Andy Lau joined other celebrities in answering phones on Friday night as two televised fundraisers brought in more than 1.1 billion Taiwan dollars (33 million US dollars) to aid typhoon victims.

Anger has been mounting over the government's apparent bungled response to the disaster, with critics saying it was late in seeing the magnitude of the emergency.

The powerful typhoon lashed the island for three days, triggering what the government says were its worst ever floods.

President Ma Ying-jeou warned the island-wide death toll of more than 120 would likely rise to more than 500 as fears mounted for those missing.

Koni Lui dumps boyfriend Dickson Wong

Koni Lui

Koni Lui and Dickson Wong have dated for many years. Although they have previously been rumored breaking up the real reason behind it was because they didn't want to upset TVB and affect their careers. Therefore the couple continued their relationship underground. It is said that they struggled with their 7 year relationship and have recently broken up in a peaceful way. Dickson hopes to marry Koni but she is not willing to give up her career and is getting more famous. Comparing to Dicksons entertainment career their is a huge difference between them.

Koni Lui who was awarded Miss Hong Kong 2006 2nd Runner Up, worked as a model before she entered the industry. She met Dickson during her modeling career. They have been dating for 7 years and often encouraged each other to get into the entertainment field. Since entering the Miss Hong Kong Pageant Koni's career has been very successful and often been given many opportunties. The series "Catch Me Now" where she played the role "Long Leg Crab" grabbed a lot of attention. Earlier she had the chance to get on the big screen and filmed the movie "Laughing Gor之變節》" with Anthony Wong.

The distance became bigger

In comparison, Dickson's career has been less successful. While he competed in Mr Hong Kong he was a hot favorite to win. After encouragement from Koni he decided to sign an artist contract with TVB, hoping his entertainment career would be successful. But since joining he hasn't been given any work to shine. Koni and Dickson's career difference is becoming bigger and this has given them a lot of pressure.

Another reason why they had relationship problems was because they seldom see each other due to work. Koni was seen having dinner with a member from the boyband Square. Dickson has also been seen shopping in a pet store with a mid aged woman.

Their 7 year relationship officially ended not because of a third party, but because Dickson tried to save this relationship. He proposed to her and wanted to get married but Koni wouldn't give up her successful career. In the end the marriage proposal ended as a breakup.

No Longer Good Friends

While filming the movie "Laughing Gor之變節》" Koni and Dickson were both present but did not speak to each other. Earlier Koni was involved in a car accident but Dickson didn't comfort her either. During the premiere, both of them refused to take pictures together.

Koni is currently filming TVB sitcom "The Queen of the Office" and accepted a phone interview with the reporters. When being asked if she had broken up with Dickson, she said "In the past we were good friends, now we are just friends, Thats all". (Did she break up because of marriage?) "My career is currently very successful, the company has given many opportunties. I am not planning to get married within the next few years". The reporter was unable to get hold of Dickson for a response.
