Angela Tong has recently become spokesperson for a VDU company and yesterday she opened a new store for them in Sham Shui Po. When she was asked about her views on the break up between Lawrence Ng and Iva Lo, Angela said: "Really? The thing is about dating, is that a third party will never know what really happened, but I think it is a shame." Angela tells of how she lost her handbag a few days ago and not only did she lose about $10,000 but also all her ID, so she has to go and reclaim it.
Myolie Wu's loving young girl character in the recent series "Triumph in the Skies" has been well received and she has taken on four new advertising jobs as a result and was filming recently for a Mainland DVD ad in exchange for a six-figure fee. With the money rolling in, she no longer has to worry about the price of her clothes!
Myolie was filming an ad for the DVD company wearing a mini skirt that revealed her legs and also a black backless dress that gave a look of mature sophistication, that even impressed the image stylist Hau Wing Choi. It appears that Myolie has received offers for a string of ads thanks to her healthy image in "Triumph" and she says: "This DVD company's mainland spokesperson is Andy Lau and I know that they were looking for artistes with a healthy image to advertise for them in Hong Kong so when I recieved this call, I was happy that I have gained this status in the viewers minds."
With her income on the rise, Myolie says happily: "Although my income has risen, I haven't really bought anything to reward myself, just that when I was clothes shopping earlier, I could browse them all without having to worry too much about the price, not like in the past when I would have to think hard and check all the prices. Will I change my car or house? I haven't thought about it at all because I am the stable type who will place all the money into the bank and not invest wildly. I have had some bad experiences in the past when I invested $20,000 after following some advice from a friend and bought some shares. Then they fell very sharply and although I am not sure how much they are worth now, I daren't buy shares any more!"
Also, when she was rehearsing for her musical 'Hon Kong Diu Suet', there was a rule that you would be fined for being late and Myolie was late because she was filming. She said: "The rule was $1 per minute of lateness, so I was fined a few tens of dollars!"
