    Longtime opponent, Joey Yung, appears as a special guest for Miriam Yeung's concert for the first time

    The night before was Miriam Yeung's second show for her HK Coliseum Concert "Let's Begin World Tour 2015", and she had invited her "deadly opponent", Joey Yung as her guest. The two queens showed respect for each other, Miriam praised Joey for being an outstanding opponent, and even revealed that she gets over breakups with Joey's songs! Miriam praised her concerts for being full of luck, and "predicted" that a wedding may be near for Joey.

    The second night of Miriam's concert gained a lot of support; other than husband, Real Ting, good friend Wilfred Lau, Remus Choy and Eric Kwok and his wife were also at the concert to support her. The most surprising was that Joey Yung, seen as Miriam's longtime opponent, was the guest for Miriam's concert for the first time. The two sang Joey's "Used to Break Up 習慣失戀 " together. Talking about the reason she chose this song of Joey's, Miriam revealed that when she experienced a break up back in the past, many of Joey's love songs were a must-sing at karaoke for her!

    Miriam heavily praised Joey for being a singer that she very much admires in her career and in life: "In the awards ceremony, we are opponents. In that minute, it's either you win, or I lose. Of course at those moments, it feels bad. But afterwards, I felt that the entertainment industry needs different singers, like me and you!" Joey also agreed and laughed saying: "Every market will have different products, impossible to have only one product. Like with smartphones, there is the iPhone, but there also needs to be Samsung!", making the audience laugh.

    Smiled sweetly talking about having a baby

    With the rare sighting of the 2 Cantopop queens chatting on stage, Miriam said that Eason says that he has a secret formula for dieting. Joey immediately reminded Miriam not to fall for it! She also stated that she's very envious of Miriam being able to step into the other stage of life. Miriam immediately replied: "It's close for you too! Quite soon!" and immediately pointed towards where Wilfred Lau was sitting. Miriam laughed: "My concerts are full of luck! My assistant also met her current husband at my concert! That time, my concert was called "Open Big", afterwards she even had a baby!", making Joey smile sweetly.

    Kary Ng is officially Mrs. Hung; Engaged in Italy, then married in America

    Yesterday, Kary Ng announced her marriage with her first love "Prince of Tennis", Brian Hung online. In order to create a surprise, Brian first went to Italy with Kary and were engaged there, then he invited both their parents to America to witness the important moment. In addition to a 1 million HKD diamond ring, the two were successfully wedded!

    After breaking up with Shawn Yue, 28 year old singer, Kary Ng, got back together with 29 year old, "Prince of Tennis", Brian Hung last June. Just after their engagement news a few weeks ago, who knew that Kary would already become Mrs. Hung so quickly!

    Showed off happiness with quote from the Bible

    Yesterday, Kary announced her marriage on a social media website, and expressed that she has finally become a wife. She also uploaded three sweet pictures of her and her husband. Other than the usual sweet cheek kiss and forehead pictures, there was also a picture of the two holding hands. Successfully become Mrs. Hung, Kary wrote a caption using a "golden quote" from the Bible: "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. (Corinthians 13:4-8) Marriage is an important lesson in life. From this day onwards, we will support each other, love each other, respect each other. Thank you all for your blessings! We are very happy!" Compared to the other "Cookie Crumbs" still active in the industry, like Stephy Tang, Miki Yeung, etc., Kary, who is the youngest of them all, is the one to get married the fastest!

    Their wedding was extremely low-profile, but very romantic and full of surprises. To create a surprise, Brian got permission from their parents beforehand, and "plotted" together to first get engaged in Italy. When the "couple-to-be" flew to America, Brian suddenly took out a 4-carat diamond ring and proposed to Kary on one knee, giving her the promise of a lifetime. He even invited both their parents to fly over and witness this "important moment", touching Kary to tears and accepted his proposal.

    Will make up for the wedding banquet in Hong Kong this August

    Because the wedding was a surprise, Kary did not even prepare a wedding dress. She simply wore a simple white dress, along with her 1 million HKD diamond ring and a diamond bracelet for their wedding. Kary's record label revealed yesterday, that Kary is very touched. A representative said: "They first got engaged in Italy, then registered for marriage in America. They will make up for their wedding banquet in Hong Kong in August." The two will directly have their honeymoon in America, and Kary will return to Hong Kong to attend the ceremony for her contract renewal next month.

    Ex-boyfriend Shawn Yue congratulated Kary through his company with 6 words: "Hope she is blissful and happy!" Kary's ex-Cookie co-members, Stephy Tang, Miki Yeung and Angela Au are also very happy for her. Yesterday, Stephy expressed through her record company: "I knew she was getting married for a while already! Waiting for her to return to Hong Kong now, so we can eat and chat."

    HKTV ratings dropping; "The Election 2" production pushed back

    HKTV ratings dropping; "The Election 2" production pushed back

    The TV station monopoly in Hong Kong seems to be hard to change. Tomorrow is the deadline for the bidding of part of ATV's shares. If there is still no "white knight" to save them, they may have to face the fate of liquidation. On the other side, HKTV's situation is also not very optimistic. Last November, the online platform was finally launched, and Ricky Wong had expressed that HKTV will start producing new shows this February. However, unfortunately the recent airing drama "Once Upon a Song" was not able to continue the results of "To Be or Not to Be". Ratings fell tremendously; the daily average of clicks by accounts dropped from last last week's 127,000 to last week's 105,000, a drop of 17.3%.

    Sources say that Ricky Wong is worried about "only expenses going out and nothing coming in", so they have pushed the plan (for new show production) to May. However, the internal staff is not very optimistic about that. Rumoured to be the first drama to film after starting production again, "The Election II"'s director Wong Kwok Keung admitted through phone that ratings were not ideal, he said: "There's definitely some disappointment, but I understand. This platform is not that convenient to watch, still really far from the ideal platform." After his contract with HKTV is over, he will be starting his new job in February. He said: "I don't think we will be able to start filming in February or March, nor can Uncle Chi fit it into his schedule. But I told Mr. Wong, if they really do film it later on, I will try my best to fit it into my schedule."

    Angelica Lee, who was in "The Election" attended an event in Tsim Sha Tsui today. She expressed that she hasn't decided whether she will agree to film the second installment: "Need to see the script first."

    As for Mizz Eva, who sang the insert song "I'll Be There" for "The Election", also finished her contract with HKTV last month. Thankfully, she was spotted by a company and signed on 3 years to become Chilam Cheung's junior.

    Champion No. 15 Mandy Choi

    Hot Favourite Leah Lee

    Second Runner-Up Catherine Hui

    Miss Sydney, Mandy Choi, crowned Miss Chinese International Pageant 2015 Champion

    The 2015 Miss Chinese International Pageant was held last night. Before the race, No.13 Leah Lee was a hot favourite. However, during the finale, she was fouled out early and did not even make it to the Top 10! In the end, No. 15, Mandy Choi from Sydney was crowned the champion, while the runner-up and second runner-up were taken by No. 6 Veronica Shiu and No. 11 Catherine Hui.

    Last night's "Miss Chinese International Pageant 2015" was held at TVB City in Tseung Kwan O. The 18 contestants fought it out, and in the end, the Top 3 winners were No. 15 Mandy Choi, No. 6 Veronica Shiu and No. 11 Catherine Hui. When Mandy Choi was crowned the champion, the other contestants rushed up to congratulate her, and she immediately burst out crying!

    The pageant's judges included Monica Chan, Roger Kwok, Ada Choi, etc., while the star judge panel included TVB "goddesses", Priscilla Wong, Eliza Sam, Samantha Ko, Rebecca Zhu, etc., in addition to 100 professionals from different industries. The first round had the contestants dress in evening gowns and introduce themselves; some contestants wore low-cut outfits. Most of the contestants did not have fluent Cantonese, which made their speeches sound quite funny. The three hosts announced the Top 3 of the internal voting among the contestants, which were Hong Kong representative Veronica Shiu, and hot favourites No.13 Leah Lee and No. 3 Erica Chen. Afterwards, the contestants did a dance performance. No. 4 Jennifer Chen's 35 inch bust caught a lot of attention, while No.8 Katrina Lee, Tammy Wong and Erica Chen appeared quite stiff.

    Hot favourite Leah Lee did not enter Top 10

    Next was the question-answer round, in which the contestants were tasked to use 'negative' connotations to describe each other; however the contestants largely praised each other, no 'flames' at all! After the round, the 100 professionals were asked to vote for their favourite contestants, which were No. 3 Isabella Wu, Veronica Shiu and Catherine Hui. The contestants that appeared in swimsuits, and the hosts announced the Top 10. Hot favourite, Leah Lee, from Seattle was fouled out early on! During the swimsuit question-answer period, No. 7 Anjoe Koh chose to ask the judges "whether the size of the bust would affect being the champion or not", but was asked back by the judge panel. She intelligently answered: "I asked this question is because, number 1, for entertainment effect, number 2, helping the audience ask. As for me, although my body is quite small, but I have everything, very equal!" For local representative, Veronica Shiu, other than showing off a "career" line during this round, she also expressed that Chow Yun Fat works very hard with no complaints, so he represents the "Hong Kong spirit" the best. However, she was immediately retorted by host, Dodo Cheng, saying: "So we don't have that spirit?", making her quickly clarify. However, Dodo still didn't let her go, making her very embarrassed. The other host, Lawrence Cheng, cut in and said: "You can't save it already!", making the audience simmer with laughter. In the end, she shot into the Top 5. During the Top 5 1 minute talent performance, she imitated Michael Jackson's moonwalk in a waist-revealing look, looking very cool!

    Second Runner-Up Catherine Hui feels sad

    After the pageant, champion Mandy Choi was still very agitated after winning, expressing that she never though that she would win: "I already felt really lucky getting into the Top 5! (The black horse?) I never thought I would get the champion!" She also expressed that she doesn't know which round she performed the best in, and laughed saying she needs to ask the judges. She also revealed that she only learned the samba dance she did in her talent performance before the pageant. Asked if she will develop her career in Hong Kong? She expressed she will seriously consider it and discuss it with her family. As for Veronica Shiu getting the runner-up, she laughed saying she isn't disappointed: "I am very happy with my performance tonight, I think I did very well. The champion deserves her title, she performed very well, very humorous. Perhaps she won by this factor. (Which part do you think you lost at?) Not much, I am satisfied with my performance, especially the dance performance." Second runner-up Catherine Hui honestly expressed that she's satisfied with the results, and that this time was the most touching contest she's participated in: "Because I got to know 17 good friends from all over the world. Really sad right now, because I will miss them." Although she was seen as a hot favourite before the pageant, she said: "When people said I was a favourite, I didn't think much about it. Winning the award this time, I have to thank my parents for it."
