Bobby's Mouth is Sealed by Yoyo at "Trouble Daddy" Costume Fitting

Bobby Au Yeung, Yoyo Mung, Tavia Yeung and Wong He joined together for the costume fitting of new series "Trouble Daddy" yesterday. During the event, Bobby was joking around endlessly with Yoyo, talking about her relationship with Ekin Cheng and in the end, she used the promotional stickers to seal up his mouth.

Asked if Bobby was worried about making Yoyo unhappy, he says that he has worked together with Yoyo on numerous occasions and they know each other quite well, so he can joke boldly without fear.

Yoyo reveals that in the new series, she will be playing an executive for a supermarketand has to work with a group of children. She says: "This is the first time working with so many children in a series and there are many scenes where there are more than ten of them with me. I don't really know how to handle kids because I end up playing tricks on them. (Would you go to a supermarket to buy bargain products?) Very rarely, but I do look for discounts when I buy clothes and have been when they have had end of season clearouts for cheap clothes. A pair of $1900 jeans was reduced to just $190, so I bought a few different sizes so I can wear them whatever my body size."

Tavia will also have many scenes with the children and she says that she is not too worried about handling them because she is used to spending time with her younger brother and sister and is quite experienced. Asked what her methods are of keeping mischievous children at bay, she smiles: "I will prepare some snacks to tempt them. If that doesn't work, then I will have to resort to the sedatives!"

Moses Uses Codes for other Artistes Names in Phone

Moses Chan, Yoyo Mung, Andrew Lau and jewellery designer Karen Lee were invited to a mobile phone event, where they were each presented with a new phone.

Yoyo says that she has only learned recently how to send emails via her mobile phone as sh was taught by a good friend. She feels that always taking her laptop with her wherever she goes is a pain, so to be able to do this on her phone is very convenient. Ekin Cheng likes to keep up with his new technology, will she be introducing this new phone to him? She says that a lot of her friends like their gadgets and are smarter than her, so she does not need to show him. She will be heading out to Europe to do some promotions for TVBI, visiting the Netherlands, Spain and Italy. She will be singing Miriam Yeung's "Ga Yu Yeung Ngo Suet Ha Hui" (If you let me speak on).

When Moses arrived in Hong Kong, the PDA phone had not yet become popular, but he already used one because he can put all the details of his schedule into the phone. Asked if he was worried about losing it, he says that he will always back up the information onto his computer at home, so even if he loses it, then he is not worried, especially as the security settings in phones nowadays are so complex, then he is not worried about the information being revealed.

Also, Moses indicates that he has codes to indicate other artistes' names, so he does not use their real names in his phone. Asked what the code for Bernice Liu is, he smiles he will not talk about these things. When the reporters asked him if it was 'Baby' or 'Girlfriend', he just laughed and did not respond. Has he sent SMS to his girlfriend? He syas that he is just a normal person and quite boring really. Later, he will be heading out to Europe to take part in the Miss Chinatown Europe Pageant activity before returning to film for the new 80-episode series and preparing to release his book. It turns out that he has always enjoyed writing, so this book will be sharing his thoughts on food and travel and will give a feeling of comfort and relaxation.

Spokesperson for the company Andrew says that choosing the right network is very important and when he was filming earlier in Hunan, the reception there was very good. He smiles that whenever he works away, he will call home and say the same thing four times to each of his four children.

Claire and Thomas on Cheap and Cheerful Honeymoon

Newlyweds Thomas Lam and Claire Yiu joined together with some friends and family to form a honeymoon tour group to a Malaysian island enjoying five days and four nights of sun, sea and sand, with everyone paying their own way.

Claire says that the expenses there were very inexpensive and a 4-catty garoupa came to just over HK$100 and hiring a boat to go out to sea was only around $1000. Whilst they were out at sea, Thomas and his friends caught a conch and some swordfish and the conch was worth about $300. Thomas says: "The sunshine there was lovely, but after coming home to the cloudy, rainy skies in Hong Kong, there was no comparison." As for when they would be going on a honeymoon by themselves, he says that his wife will soon be filming and he will be working on a background planning project for East Asia Satellite Television, so there are no plans to go away just yet. He says that things are not very different after marriage because they lived together before they were married anyway, but the change is in their identities now and he has to work much harder now for his wife.
