Dubbed as Malaysia's Aaron Kwok, Auguste Kwan has gained some notoriety from "Gam Pai Bing Yan" (Better Halves) and he was filming a telecoms advertisement yesterday. When asked how much his salary was for his first ad since moving to Hong Kong, he laughed and replied: "It is a six-figure sum, for a newcomer it is very satisfying." Will he be buying a present for Cerina de Graca? He asks in return: "Why should I buy her anything? If I should buy anyone a present it should be Mui Siu Ching and Tsang Lai Chun because they gave me the opportunity to make this show, but during the sensitive times the present had better be less than $500."

When it was mentioned that he and Cerina are using matching mobile phones, he explains that the phones were sponsored by a friend and he suggested to the friend to sponsor Cerina, Ada Choi and Maggie Cheung as well. When he was mocked by a reporter saying he is especially looking after Cerina, he says: "On a personal note we are good friends, I treat her like a brother and she treats me like a sister [Em: not a mistake - this is what he said!!], she is very tomboyish and very straight. Like when the rumours started about us dating, she says she is used to it and not to take it to heart, if she did have a boyfriend, I would find it quite hard to explain."
