    Taiwanese actress Ariel Lin celebrates engagement with star-studded party

    Taiwanese actress-singer Ariel Lin held an engagement party for the media, close friends and relatives in Taipei on Oct 29, which also happened to be her 32nd birthday.

    The 50-table dinner event was held at the Ambassador Hotel, reported Apple Daily.

    It was the first time the public had a look at the TV sweetheart's fiance, Charles Lin, who admitted during a press conference in the afternoon that he was 'very nervous'. But the Taiwanese-American businessman managed to express his happiness in marrying 'such a beautiful bride'.

    The star-studded guest list included Taiwanese celebrities like Kai Ko, Christine Fan and husband "Blackie", Matilda Tao and Bowie Tsang.

    Guests also goaded the couple into kissing for the cameras, to which the pair shyly obliged by giving each other an innocent peck on the cheek.

    According to Apple Daily, Ariel wore a bright red dress during the engagement ceremony with her parents earlier in the day, where Charles put a gold ring on her finger. Ariel later clarified that the ring is a wedding ring and not an engagement band, as "I will wear it for a long time and it can match any outfit".

    It was reported that the pair have been dating for more than two years, with rumours that Charles proposed to Ariel last year. But the actress refused to acknowledge the reports then.

    However, invitation cards for the engagement party were leaked online in early Oct, revealing the engagement date as well as the wedding date, which is set on Christmas eve this year.

    The usually private actress finally confirmed reports of the engagement to the media on Oct 17, at the same time releasing photos from her wedding photoshoot.

    During the press conference, Charles gamely revealed he had proposed to the actress in New York last year, when the actress was in the city for a university admission interview.

    As for where the couple will be staying after marriage, Ariel will reportedly shuttle between Taiwan and US, where Charles is based for work at his family's diving equipment business.

    Sharon Chan wants to be "Queen of Cookies"; Hopes "Blesscuit" can become one of Hong Kong's souvenirs

    Sharon Chan wants to be "Queen of Cookies"; Hopes "Blesscuit" can become one of Hong Kong's renowned souvenirs

    "Queen of Beauty Legs", Sharon Chan, after her marriage, she also quickly became a boss. She invested money in her own cookie bakery in Tin Hau. This afternoon, when she held her grand opening, many good friends in the industry came to support, including Stephen Chan, Christine Ng, Roger Kwok and his wife, Cindy Au, Jazz Lam, Janet Chow, etc.; also attracting around 50 passerbys and fans. In addition to the 10+ media on site for interviews, the whole street was filled with people. Even Sammy Sum Mei, who was the host of the grand opening, was pushed to one corner. Standing and hosting in a crowd full of people made the scene incredibly funny.

    Sharon revealed that she and a few other shareholders invested a total of a seven figure sum. From taste testing till the opening of the store, they used one year to plan. Her husband was a "behind the scenes" helper by giving suggestions. She said: "Because I like to eat cookies, I mainly want to spread positive energy to the world, so we are called "Blesscuit", with the meaning of "giving blessings". When you buy cookies from us, we will also gift a blessing card; we hope the people who receive our cookies can feel our love. (Don't need to work on having a real BB?) No time, not yet, because this is my first time being a boss, I put a lot of effort into it. I want to focus on this, and put more work into it. (Your husband has no complaints?) No, he also really likes these cookies. He tried it and also said it's very delicious. (Personally learned to make them?) Yes, because I have to learn in order to know what the chef put in it. Baking is quite fun!"

    She also expressed that the "gem of the store" are Black Truffle Cookies, the only store in Hong Kong to have this, which is an idea she thought of: "Because usually when I eat, I like to add black truffles to everything, so I asked the chef to try and add this element in. Right now, it is the bestseller of the store. Although the costs are quite high, I don't dare price it too expensive, hope to make it affordable for everyone." As for the road being crowded due to her grand opening, Sharon said she said "sorry" to the neighbours, and also got a lot of support from the nearby stores. She also exposed that her plan is to open a branch store in the Kowloon area early next year. She said: "I have confidence that we can do well, because before the opening, we already received a lot of orders. My friends crazily order by hundreds and hundreds, I hope we can become one of Hong Kong's famous souvenirs in the future. (Compete with the bakery that Eric Tsang endorses?) No, no one can compete with Eric's status. The pastries they sell are different; best that we all do does well together! I can represent the "cookie" industry and be the "Queen of Cookies"."

    TVB's Calendar theme for 2015 this time are the hit "main" series of each month. TVB's Deputy Director, Tsang Sing Ming, denied that the theme this year is due to the company reducing expenses: "It is not saving money. Every artiste took out the time to take these photos just for the calendar, and we even hired an external source for the design. We spent approximately a 7-figure sum for these photos." When the dramas come to air, they will still be making another official poster for the dramas. 26 fa dans and siu sangs head the cover of the calendar.
    Tsang Sing Ming responds: "The calendar can only print 12 dramas, but we have 20+ dramas every year. Like, Myolie's drama "Lady Sour", it will be airing in December, so we did not print it. So we placed her in the cover to make up for it. (Liza Wang, Dodo Cheng are not on the cover?) We have a few hundred people in the company, it is impossible to include everyone."

    Lawrence Ng announces divorce; Has been living separately from wife for 3-4 years

    Regarding the rumours of his marriage with 29 year old wife, Shi Yang Zi, Lawrence Ng, who is 50 years old this year, recently admitted through Weibo that there are indeed some problems between the couple, they are currently working to solve it. The family of three even went to a vacation on Malaysia after that, in attempt to have a deeper talk. Yesterday night, Lawrence revealed on a phone interview that he and his wife had actually been living separate for 3-4 years already. As for what the problem is between the couple? He said: "The main thing is the cultural difference. We cannot communicate or have a talk. These two years, we've been trying hard, but it isn't something we can solve in a moment's time! The problem arose between the two of us, cannot blame it on one side only." He honestly stated that recent reports on his wife always in contact with the opposite sex is very unfair to her: "The photos of her with the men, are all taken from her Weibo. One of the photos were even with the groomsman from our wedding! I don't want everyone to attack my wife!" He also expressed that his daughter is currently studying primary school, and wants to bring her to Hong Kong to study.

    Shi Yang Zi also spoke out for the first time after the marriage trouble rumours on Weibo: "Before marriage, Lawrence and I had an agreement, hoping that I won't film anymore, and comfortably be a full time wife, and take care of the "logistics" at home well.... Loving is easy, maintaining it is hard. I hope we can guard this love we had in the beginning." She also expressed that she wants to return to the industry, because her daughter asked her why she's always at home. She does not want to depend all on Lawrence, and hopes to have an income that can raise herself, her daughter and the family.

    Just when it seemed like the two's marriage had a chance of being saved, this morning, at 9:20am, Lawrence announced on Weibo that the two have decied to get a divorce: "As a man, not being able to manage my marriage well, this responsibility, I am incredibly guilty. For my daughter, we really did not want to go to to this last step, but reality is always against our wishes, it seems like divorce is what is best for us. For this, I feel deeply regretful and pained. I can only use the future days to raise my daughter with all my effort, give her the love she needs, and hope to diminish her pain to the minimum. Lastly, I want to thank all the friends who have shown their care to us once again."
