[Ta Kung Pao]

To celebrate the sixth anniversary of TVB's Mandarin channel TVB8, a music festival was held outside the Cultural Centre, featuring singers such as Hacken Lee, Christopher Wong, Shawn Yue, Emme Wong and 2R, with a blessing ceremony in the afternoon. However, even in the hot sunshine, Hacken had a bandage around his head and he explained that this was due to a head injury caused by his dog!

Hacken says he likes to play golf and he often practices on the first floor of his home. On that day, he put his club down on the stairs, but his dog knocked it over and it fell and hit him on the left hand side of his skull, leaving him bleeding and needing five stitches from the hospital. He could easily have escaped this incident because his girlfriend Emily Lo saw the club falling down and yelled out "The golf..." but her reaction was not as fast as the speed of the falling club and this freak accident could not be avoided.

Hacken says the stitches will be removed on Friday and the doctors have already been good to him as they know he is an artiste and have allowed him to receive treatment without having to shave his hair away from the affected area, but needing additional assistant from the nurses. However, Hacken is not allowed to wash his hair for a few days and he says he has not washed his hair now for three days already and he feels very uncomfortable. He would be wearing a hat for yesterday's performance. Hacken laughs that usually the dog poops everywhere and he would reprimand it, but he never thought that the pooch would reap its revenge!

Ron Ng has recently been signed to make a set of ads for a photo processing company and after filming for "Police Cadet Brave Hearts" yesterday, he and Chan Hoi Yee headed to a press conference that also attracted a crowd of over a hundred fans who waited to see him, leading to some chaos outside.

During the event, Ron and Hoi Yee were asked by the hosts to recreate their pose from the advertisement, where Ron had to bend over and carry Hoi Yee on his back in a funny position and hold the pose for ten seconds, but he seemed a little awkward and became very flushed. When asked if he rarely carries girls on his back, thus leaving him embarrassed, he says: "No, it is just the blood rushing to my head. In the past, when I was a dancer, I could pick a girl up with one arm, but I can't do it any more." When asked what kind of photography he likes, Ron says: "I rarely photograph pretty girls, usually I will not take pictures of people's pretty sides, but more of their weird expressions."

Also, Ron's good friend Bosco Wong was attacked earlier in China and he says that he did not know that Bosco had returned to Hong Kong, but he will call him later. Ron feels that it is better for artistes not to frequent the late venues. He says: "I don't like going to those places, I feel more comfortable at home, so I don't bother going out and being accused of pulling girls. If I am dating, I will tell everyone."
