The Annual Food Expo arrives at Hong Kong's Convention and Exhibition Centre again and with the recent recovery in the economy, the sellers are all eager to show their goods. Many stars appeared to show their support and attract more visitor numbers, those appearing yesterday included Eric Tsang, Nancy Sit and Bernice Liu, causing quite a stir.
Spokesperson for a mooncake bakery, Eric Tsang appeared to sell cakes along with Priscilla Ku, Cheung Kwok Keung and Wallis Pang to raise funds for charity. Eric came straight from filming on his new movie "Dai Jeung Fu" and signed every box he sold to make it special. Despite the enthusiasm from the visitors, they kept order and it is estimated that around $100,000 dollars was raised for charity.
On the other hand, Nancy Sit was also going strong as her autographed posters ran out in no time [Em's poor pun: you could say they sold like hot cakes....] and as spokesperson, Nancy promoted: "As well as Ka Yin Ma Ma mooncakes, there will also be another line of Ka Yin Ma Ma products such as Char Siu Buns and cookies that can be bought from supermarkets. (So are you making a packet?) Yes it should be a seven figure sum."
Gaining in popularity after TVB's "Lut Ching San Yan Wong" (Survivor's Law), Bernice Liu created a huge crowd at her stand and at one point ther was some trouble as people fought to get her signed posters. Bernice appeared on the stage to perform some great dance moves and gained rapturous applause from the audience.
Bernice Liu appeared at the Food Expo together with child star Jenny Shing yesterday to promote their sponsor's vitamin pills. Because the venue was full with the crowds, there was some chaos as Bernice entered and when asked whether anyone took advantage of her, she laughed: "Of course not, because Jenny was in front of me and she protected my bottom half so I only needed to worry about my top half."
Later the organisers arranged for Bernice to do some dancing and with her dance background, Bernice performed a cartwheel and a high kick split, earning great applause from the audience and although she has only practiced this for a few days, the result was quite good.
When asked about her show "Lut Ching San Yan Wong" (Survivor's Law) that has just finished airing, Bernice says that this is her first main lead in a series and she was very excited about it, she says: "I feel that I could have done better, but I am now starting to be recognised in the street."
