Softhard (Jan Lamb and Eric Kot) have completed their ten-show concert run and took part earlier in an interview for Stephen Chan's chat show "Be My Guest". Stephen expressed thanks to the duo for their commitment to the interview, even though it was after the concert, as most of the promotional activity usually takes place beforehand. Jan laughed that this was because he is not someone who is ungrateful to those who have helped him in the past. Stephen indicates that he has worked with CRHK in the past, but he didn't really speak much with Jan and Eric. He will be asking them about some gossip on Anthony Wong (Yiu Ming), who their mentors are, the stories of them falling out and which of them was closer to CRHK's former executive Winnie Yu.

Stephen presented Jan and Eric with a red and yellow Softhard model, whilst they returned the gift with a copy of their album. During the concert, they complained that TVB had not released their series 'Peculiar DJ Show' on VCD, but before the end of the concerts, the products were already out on the shelves. Stephen indicates that this is one of the best selling VCD titles of all time and 8000 copies have sold already. Eric immediately laughed: "Do we get a cut?", to which Stephen replied: "Yes, you should. I should also claim a cut from the 'Be My Guest' VCD's."

Asked whether they needed to act more seriously because they were being interviewed by an executive, Jan cracked a joke about pinching Stephen and even tried to change the name of the show. When they were asked if they would answer all of the questions, Jan continued the cheek as he asked in return whether all the guests have to cry on this show because he has seen the other guests do this in the past.

Cherrie Ying, Ron Ng and Jade Kwan took part in a skincare product promotion yesterday and shared their skincare tips. Ron have a female fan a facial and he says that this is the first time he has been to the 'service' of a lady. Ron was earlier mocked for his mistake around his idol Johnny Depp's name when he was talking about the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie and he was a little embarrased by this as he admitted he needed to have a crash course in English and watch more episodes of "English in One Minute".

Jade has successfully lost 8 lbs lately and has tanned her skin because she has been swimming a lot. Originally she had wanted to go wakeboarding with Calvin Choi (Grasshoppers) but because he has to rehears for his concert, she has taken lessons from another teacher. Cherrie is very busy lately filming on the mainland as well as in movies. Asked if this was because Cecilia Cheung had been dropped from her company, Cherrie says that this is just because she has found some suitable work. She adds that Cecilia has done well and has won awards, so she will turn her sights onto other things like dating. She is only 23 years old, so she will wait a few more years before she starts thinking about dating, marriage and starting a family. Asked about Jordan Chan's recent car accident, Cherrie says that when she saw his car had overturned, she was very shocked, but when she found out he was able to walk out of the hospital himself, then she was relieved. She will send him a text to wish him well.

Myolie Wu and Andy Hui have been busy filming for "Lush Fields Happy Times" recently and earlier they filmed a couple of scenes in the swimming pool. The first was with Myolie and Andy at the pool together, where Andy who had toned himself from swimming easily did 20 lengths, but Myolie didn't even make one length. The second scene tells of Myolie going back to the pool the next day, where she tells the lifeguard she plans to swim 20 lengths to show Andy what she can do. However, she sees her dream man Matthew Ko and nearly drowns because she is so happy. Fortunately Matthew is on hand to rescue her.
