Ruby Lin in romantic Dior and Burberry gown

Ruby Lin

Earlier, reports surfaced of Ruby Lin having dated Patty Hou's fiance Huang Bo Jun. At an interview with "China Times", she said that she isn't regretful. "I truly and fully wish them the most happiness." She wore Dior and Burberry's new line at the photoshoot, which featured many items of clothing that were nude coloured and silver, showing off her light heartedness and clarity.

Wearing a romantic Dior gown, Ruby couldn't resist pairing the dress with short socks and high heels. Laughing, she said "Oh my goodness, no one wore socks with heels like this in my school days, because they'll be laughed at as the village maiden. I can't believe it's so popular now!" She feels that the nude and silver colours this season are full of modern appeal.

The magazine points out that Ruby and Bo Jun's parents are all rotary club members, and met after an introduction by the parents. Bo Jun expressed lots of interest upon meeting her, and initiated contact with the intent to date her. However, because his foremost reason for dating was marriage, added with Ruby's recent breakup with long time rumoured boyfriend Stanley Tong, she wasn't in the mood to see anyone new, and they didn't pursue any relationships.

To be tied in with being matchmade and having dated Bo Jun, Ruby simply says, "I am not the old flame." She continues to say that the allegations are being really stretched, since they have only seen each other twice, and it was at a gathering with many elders, so they are not familiar with each other. As for rumours that Bo Jun's family background is alarming, (apparently his dad is Ti Hua Street's landlord), she laughs. "This one rumour I've never heard my own parents mention, I also only found out after reading it in news reports."

Lin Chi Ling problem with health insurance

Lin Chi Ling

TAIPEI, Taiwan -- Taiwan's Bureau of National Health Insurance (BNHI) released a statement yesterday (Wednesday) clarifying that top model Lin Chih-ling has already made up her health insurance premium with no payment owed to the bureau.

The statement was issued following a media report saying that Lin, rated as a top model with an enviable high income, had failed to make her premium payment for three years.

The report has drawn criticisms about the financial loopholes in the NHI system and the negligence of the BNHI.

Officials at the BNHI under the Department of Health (DOH) said Lin revised her status as an employer to join the NHI program starting in March 2007, liable to a premium payment of S$265 per month.

But the existing regulations allow people who have to make frequent trips abroad due to work or other factors to apply for a suspension of payment when they stay overseas of more than six months. They may apply for resumption of the insurance coverage after returning to Taiwan, said the officials.

Concerning Lin's case, she has already made up the payment because none of her overstays exceeded six months in recent years, they added.

The officials said there are presently between 10,000 and 20,000 people who apply for suspension or resumption of the NHI coverage each month and it is impossible for the bureau to keep monitoring every single case.

But they conceded that under the current regulations, there is such a possible loophole for alleged evasion or delay of payment in case policyholders fail to make timely payment by neglect or elaborate effort.

However, the problem should be able to be solved after the Cabinet and lawmakers ratify the new set of rules governing the new generation of NHI program.

President Ma Ying-jeou and Premier Wu Den-yih have made a decision to introduce the second-generation health insurance plan, which would calculate premiums based on total household incomes with additional and enhanced rules to plug loopholes, within two years to improve the long-term financial viability of the NHI program, said the officials.

S.H.E. high heels in Shero Album


Yesterday S.H.E was doing a photoshoot to publicize for their latest album. The trio has a breakthrough and wore heels between 7cm to 20cm, depending on their costume changes. Selina exudes the femininity of a matured young woman; Hebe attempts to use her eyes to electrify, while Ella strikes many alluring and challenging poses.

Before the camera, S.H.E appeared ever perfect. But off-screen, they had to bear with a fair amount of hardships and difficulties. Amongst the trio, only Selina wear heels frequently and is attracted to the pretty stiletto heels. Hebe belonged to the intermediate group of heels-wearers and only started to wear them more often in recent years. On the other hand, Ella is amongst the group of beginner heels-wearers and rarely wears heels to walk or dance. Thus, when Ella finished changing into her designated outfit and the super stiletto heels to walk out of the dressing room, she accidentally slipped on the slippery door mat and fell forward. She even hit her forehead against the wall with a loud “thup”. The loud sound gave all members of the crew a fright.

Selina said, “This album will showcase our transformation from girls to young women. And one of the most significant changes would be the wearing of heels. Just like when we were young and wanted to grow up quickly, we would secretly put on our mothers’ heels. In a girl’s heart, putting on a pair of heels would symbolize the transformation into young women.” Hebe added, “In the past, I do not enjoy wearing heels as much. But I’ve grown accustomed to it through work, and now I feel that my proportions looked better when I wear heels.”

On the other hand, Ella shared, “I would probably wear heels only if need be during work. Thus being in heels is a big challenge for me. Especially during the concert whereby I have to dance in heels, it is really very tough. I remembered during last year’s [Love as One] concert, I wore heels to rehearse for a dance. After that my feet was in so bad pain and the company has to custom-made another pair of footwear for me.” Having been in heels for a full day of work, the trio ended up with soreness in their upper and lower backs and chorused, “This is the price to pay for looking trendy.”

Janine Chan love rejected by Mark Chao

Janine Zhang

After Janine Chang was supposedly rejected by Mark Chao, the entire issue has turned around. Both artists have not interacted with each other directly. Rather, it was both of their management companies that released statements. Janine Chang could only continue on promoting her new movie [Fountain of Joys]. She even said: “This is just like my movie. There is only one truth. Everyone sees something differently and their interpretations of the truth are different.”

From Janine’s side, she was asked during a charity event whether or not she would accept a younger man – older woman relationship. She replied: “I don’t want to reply these ‘what-if’ questions.” But then Janine also commented: “If Mark Chao wants to pursue me, I will accept it.”

However, the misunderstandings are no matter since she will not feel awkward when the two will work together for [Ruffian Hero] in the future.

When reporters pointed out that Mark Chao coughed out loud after he heard of Janice’s confession, Janice asked: “He probably had a cold, didn’t he?”

The press, who attended Mark Chao’s conference that day, then agreed that he was coughing throughout the entire event. Janice then said: “You see, I was right!”

The reporters argued: “Maybe he felt conflicted so he used his cough to stall time.” Janine replied: “Then it’s just as confusing as my movie’s plot.”

The box office sales for Mark Chao’s [Monga] are almost nearing 300,000,000 TWD. On the other hand, Janine Chang does not worry about these comparisons to her movie’s sales. She stated: “The movie genres are different and each individual movie has its own fate.” In [Fountain of Joys], Janine acts as a photographer who likes to peep on things. To prepare for filming the movie, Janine specially took up photography – she traveled to France, England and China to take pics. She took photos of her family and friends. But up to this day, she still has not taken a picture of Mark Chao.

Chrissie Chau modelling in Tokyo GIrls Collection

Chrissie Chau

Hong Kong models Angelababy, Chrissie Chau and Marie Zhuge have tread a beaten path towards Japan to model in the Tokyo Girls Collection (TGC) fashion show. Baby had no pressure, having already gained fame in Japan, and dressed up impishly with an intent to proceed up in the model ranks. On the flip side, Chrissie Chau was "sharpening her knives", appearing to take advantage of Baby's absence in Hong Kong to become the 2nd generation "Hong Kong Goddess".

Starting today, Angelababy, Chrissie and Marie will be modelling for two days at the TGC fashion show, competing to be the most stylish. Labelled "Hong Kong's Goddess", Baby had arrived in Yokohama to prepare for the show days ago, and should be modelling four sets of clothes and one yukata.

Baby's successful switch into another "style" of modelling (in Japan) had led to her moving her home base to Japan, no wonder she was carefree and relaxed. Yesterday Baby stole the spotlight and headed off the show, wearing D&G trousers and carrying a Chanel bag. Baby said she would not be shopping at Shibuya 109, and would be targetting the couture shops instead. Stepping up from being a "leng mou" into being a professional model, Baby says, "I won't go to 109, because it's just like Mong Kok, after wearing it for one season it can't be worn anymore." Baby has also turned into a Japanese map fanatic, searching for loopholes and hidden deals around food tax in her mission to try all the succulent local foods.

Heads to Okinawa in April for her next move

Although Baby clearly wasn't nervous, after shopping at the couture shops and filling her belly, she immediately headed towards an aromatheropy beauty spa to massage her legs, and she had a personal attendant massage her feet. Also, Baby will be heading to Okinawa for a show in April to stabilize her status in the Japanese modeling world.

Fiona realized it was hard to earn a living. She said "It was an experience working 9-5." Fiona went on to say although she worked very hard at that time, she had the freedom. Now she can earn a lot of money, but she has lost that freedom. She added "If I can't sing one day, I would want my freedom back. I know I can still act, but I want to be a normal person."
