[Ming Pao 14/12/06]
Myolie Wu, Stephanie Cheng, Don Li, Mandy Chiang and Bianca Wu joined 100 senior citizens on the annual RTHK "Love on the Move" event, where they took a special MTR train from Tsing Yi to the Ngong Ping Cable Car station and then took a tour of Lantau Island on the cable cars. The artistes were very excited about the ride on the new tourist attraction and 'Safety Captain' Myolie warmly helped the elderly people on their way. The only downer for the day was the weather as the mist clouded the view of the scenery. Myolie smiles: "It was like going to the heavens, but the cable car was very steady and next time I will take my parents."
Having successfully lost her weight now, Myolie will be shooting an ad for her slimming company soon and she will be wearing a bikini. If the photography is creative enough, she does not mind being photographed with her hands over her breasts as she says proudly: "It is very strange, after my bust grew, it did not go back down after I lost weight again. I have definitely gained from this experience and it was all thanks to my slimming company."

Sammul Chan Busy Making Money at Christmas
Rumoured to be considering terminating his contract with TVB, Sammul Chan attended the premiere of new film "Eragon" with his junior Lulu Ng and revealed that he actually still has a year's contract with TVB: "The company have approached me with a view of extending this recently and they are very sincere, but whether I sign or not depends on the terms of the contract."
He also reveals that he has taken three months leave from TVB and had originally planned to go to Beijing to improve his Mandarin, but because his departure was delayed, the class has already started, so he has had to cancel his trip. However, he has gained from this: "A company wants to invite me to film a martial arts series in the mainland, so if it goes through, it will take two months to film and I can still practice my Mandarin whilst I am there." As for Christmas, he reveals he will be making stage appearances and making money for a prosperous new year.

Sonija Kwok Falls for Chen Kun All Over Again
TVB's new historical drama "Warlords" will be airing in Hong Kong from next Monday and the leading cast members from the show including Sonija Kwok, Joe Ma, mainland actor Chen Kun and Power Chan took part in a press conference to promote the show yesterday. As well as the cast sharing their memories from filming, a special preview of the first episode was also shown. During the event, Sonija and Chen seemed to be very friendly and even hugged each other in public. On the other hand, there was a marked lack of communication between Sonija and rumoured boyfriend Joe Ma. After the event, she rushed off and did not join Joe and the others for the meal.
In response to being asked about the hug with Chen, Sonija explained that they have not seen each other for a while and smiled: "Our characters are lovers and we were in each others company for three months during filming, so it was good fun. (How do you feel after seeing him again?) He is still as handsome and we do look quite alike, especially with our long hair loose, we do look very much the same. (Is there a chance of developing [a relationship]?) I don't know! (Will you show him around and take him shopping?) He will be leaving today (Wednesday). (Is that a shame?) We will see if we can work together again in the future. He is very handsome though. (Is he your type?) It is hard to say, he is a good actor." Asked why she did not speak to Joe very much, she smiled: "Yes, I did. You just didn't see me. I did not avoid him and I hope you will not exaggerate this and focus on the series promotion." As for why she seemed a little tired, she says that she has been filming for "Curious Detective" which has been hard work, so when she left her home yesterday morning, her mother said she would have soup ready when she gets home.
Chen Kun is on a whistle-stop tour of Hong Kong before flying back to the mainland and talking of Sonija's comments about them looking alike, he agrees and says that she is very lovable when she smiles. He also adds that during filming, because the area was quite rural, then all they did in their spare time was chat and eat junk food. Does he have the chance to develop a relationship with Sonija? He says: "No chance. (Why so definite?) Because the series is over! When I am filming and I love Xishi, then I will love her 100%, but after filming, I know that a beautiful girl like her will have a lot of people in pursuit." Asked of his expectations for this series, he says that the show has been aired for two months now in the mainland at the 8pm slot and as the show progressed, there were more and more commercials, so it proves that a lot of people were watching and so he hopes it will have the same effect in Hong Kong.
Joe was asked why he did not chat to Sonija and he immediately denied this saying: "What? We did." He also says that he has not seen Chen for a while, so he was especially happy. As for what his hopes are for the show, he says that the series means a lot to him because he was working with a lot of mainland actors in the production and this was a big challenge for his own acting. He hopes that this will give a fresh impression of him to the viewers.
