TVB Lets the Girls Go Wild for the New Years Eve Party
TVB's young female artistes led the New Years Eve celebrations in sexy costumes and alluring dances. Angela Tong stole the show again with her rendition of Jolin Tang's suspension dance.
TVB held a special event at Olympian City, attracting several thousand people to come and watch as the shopping mall was totally packed out. Stars taking part included Linda Chung, Vivien Yeo, Angela Tong, Nancy Wu, Sharon Chan, Leanne Li, Elaine Yiu, Suki Chui and Sharon Luk, who all took part in various dances, letting their hair down for the new year celebrations. However, not to be outdone by the girls, four male artistes, including Chan Shan Chung, Martin Lau and Vin Choi dressed up as the assistants from "Beautiful Cooking" to give their own sexy dance routine.
Reprising her impersonation of Jolin for this show, Angela took a lot of the press attention and she also showed off her trademark splits and strappy dress, showing off her great figure and receiving wows from the crowds. Afterwards, she said: "With so many people in the audience, I was very nervous, but I had put down a lot of tape beforehand and followed all the safety precautions, so I was not worried about revealing myself. (Did you feel embarrassed?) No, but the happiest thing for me was after taking Yoga lessons from Margaret Chung, I could do the splits tonight. (What wishes do you have for the new year?) I hope that I can learn to speak Mandarin better so I can respond in interviews."
Wearing a sexy dress, Linda Chung did a dance routine with Vincent Wong, giving him a nice New Year gift. Asked what her wish for the new year, she says she would like to find her other half: "Aside from wanting to try new things in the new year, I would like to find my true love. (What is your criteria?) They have to love me and the family, be ambitious and preferably not someone from the industry."
Lui Fong was also present at the show and he said it was a great feeling to share the countdown with the public like this. His most memorable New Year was spent on his own one year promoting his album in Taiwan and only able to speak to girlfriend Carol Cheng on the telephone. He says he felt very lonely at the time. In the coming year, he will be busy preparing for his concert and he has no plans to get married yet.

Bosco Helps Tavia Out in Tai Po New Year Performance
Tavia Yeung, Tiffany Lee and Bosco Wong took part in the new year celebrations at Tai Po's Mega Mall and they appeared supporting their roles in "Dicey Business", holding hands and singing together, winning the affections of the audience. However, when Tavia was singing, she stuttered on some of the lyrics and Bosco had to help her out, singing along with a copy of the words and making the fans call out in support.
Bosco and Tavia both wish for new cars and new homes in the new year. Asked if she would like a boyfriend, she smiles that if she did then that would be a good thing. She says that pretty girls will naturally have men after her, so she will have to make an open appeal for a boyfriend.
Bosco hopes that everything will go well in 2007, he will make more money, film some movies and release an album. He would also like to move to a 1000 sq ft home to live with his mother and his two dogs, but he does not even have enough for the deposit at the moment. Will he be celebrating the new year with rumoured girlfriend Myolie Wu? He says he will not. Asked if he will be sending a New Year SMS to her, Bosco says: "I will send them to a lot of people all around the world."
