Bobby Au Yeung’s Next Target: Eliza Sam

By on October 8, 2012

Bobby Au Yeung’s Next Target: Eliza Sam thumbnail

Goodbye, Garfield the Cat! Bobby Au-Yeung (歐陽震華) was recently hired by a friend to endorse a non-surgical eye bags removal treatment, and Bobby was more than happy to help him out. Along with Bobby’s bald hairstyle, his puffy eyes had always been one of his signature looks. His friends exclaimed that his eyes made him look like Garfield the Cat, and the nickname stuck.

Bobby never really minded his puffy eyes. He always thought that his eyes gave him a more comedic look, and it had aided him in becoming a popular casting choice for comedy by many television and film producers. However, in recent years, his puffy eyes just gave him more stress than anything else. “Because of my eye bags, I would still look tired even if I had over ten hours of sleep. It makes me look tired all the time!”

Many viewers also said they were distracted by Bobby’s heavy eye bags, exclaiming that they were as big as cashew nuts. Bobby’s heavy eye bags were especially noticeable during the broadcast of 2012’s House of Harmony and Vengeance <耀舞長安>.

Bobby joked, “I’ve worked hard to earn these eye bags! It took me about seven to eight years! I never knew that I could one day compare the growth of my eye bags to the amount I earned in RMB!”

Bobby continued, “My eye bags have gotten worse in the last two to three years. I have wanted to get them removed, and I also have friends that took trips to Korea and Japan just to get them surgically removed. I went to a doctor for some advice, and he said that because I have two layers of eye bags, he would have to cut a larger area around my eye. I don’t care how it’s done, but just the thought of having him to cut deep into my eyes gives me goose bumps! This is a surgery on my eyes! It’s serious business, and regardless of how the surgery is done, it still sounds dangerous.

“Later, a friend who told me that there is a way to get them removed without surgery. I was considering it. When the company told me that they will use me as their endorser, I’ve decided that I should face my fears and have them removed.”

Bobby Looks 10 Years Younger

On the day of the ad filming, the crew on set joked that Bobby has returned to his youthful vigor, praising him that he looks at least ten years younger! Bobby smugly said, “Now it’s hard to find someone around my age to partner up with me. I guess that after Myolie Wu (胡杏兒) and Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣), the next should be “Princess Heung Heung,” Eliza Sam (岑麗香)! I also sent in a request to TVB executives, telling them that they can get Florence Kwok (郭少芸) to play my mom. If she is able to play Lai Lok Yi’s (黎諾懿) mom, surely she can play mine! Yoyo Mung (蒙嘉慧) can play my stepmom!”

When Bobby’s wife saw his “new eyes,” she immediately said she wanted to get her own eye bags done too. However, Bobby told her that she should not. “She doesn’t need to. She sleeps regularly and maintains a healthy lifestyle. She sleeps around the same hour every night, and gets up to exercise around the same time every morning. She doesn’t even have eye bags!  I am different. My sleeping schedule is messy. I’ll rather spend an extra hour sleeping than exercising!”

Asked if Bobby has finally found more confidence in himself, he laughed, “Of course! I can say that I am perfect now. In the past, I am only a threat to Kwok Fung (郭鋒). Now I think I can finally challenge Lam Fung (Raymond Lam 林峯)!”

In November, Bobby will team up with old-time partner and friend, Esther Kwan (關詠荷), to film TVB tragic drama, Love Reverses Three Lifetimes of Fate <情逆三世緣>. Bobby and Esther’s last collaboration together was in 2000’s The Legendary Four Aces <金裝四大才子>, and their last collaboration as a couple was for Armed Reaction II <陀槍師姐II> in 1999. Bobby is ecstatic to work with Esther again, and joked, “I’ve removed my eye bags for her! Esther aged really well, and if I don’t look younger, how would I be able to pair up with her? It’s a rare chance that we are able to collaborate again, so I cannot lose this opportunity!”

    1. Jayne says:

      Bobby’s comments cracked me up. It’s outrageous that he wants Florence Kwok to play his mother. His eyebags never bothered me though.

      • advo says:

        I think it was a subtle dig at TVB though, for making Florence Kwok Lai Lok Yi’s mom?

        • Cherry says:

          I never understood that. They both were great at their roles, but it wasn’t believable at all.

        • Funn Lim says:

          Just imagine, she was 13 when she gave birth. He was supposed to be young, so imagine 25 years old. 13 plus 25 and she would be 38. Is that Florence’s real age? It may not be believable in today’s context but back then, it is believable. I find Kingdom Yuen as an empress more unbelievable.

        • Funn Lim says:

          My god! She is 44! She looks good! And so it is believable in that sense.

        • skinnymocha says:

          God, I love Florence! She seems like such a bright personality outside of dramas as well. I wish she’d do more comedy though (like her role in Old Time Buddies).

        • Hannahh says:

          I like her in Come, Home Love. She is a good actress

      • anoninhk says:

        i burst out laughing at that bit about florence.

      • sure-lee says:

        Wow, I never really noticed his eyebags! I want to see what he looks like now..

    2. advo says:

      Bobby is so hilarious, lol. But I’m wary about this non-surgical procedure for removing eyebags. If it really worked, women would be all over it. It seems to me like it’s a genetic issue for Bobby, in which case surgeries is the only thing I know really works.

    3. Funn Lim says:

      She’s too young for you Bobby!

    4. TVBFanatic says:

      Bobby’s a great actor. His eyes were more a trademark than anything. I love his series and early await anything he does :)

    5. AC says:

      His eye bags never bothered me, but he does look good after removing them. It makes him look more refreshed. Bobby, Esther, and Ben Wong were filming scenes for the sales presentation today. I can’t wait to see it. :)

    6. Lucia says:

      I’ve never notice his eye bags. Bobby’s comments are so funny. I had good laugh reading this article. Florence looks great for her age. I think Bobby is just kidding or exaggerating because Florence is young to be his mom in the serie.

    7. Joanne says:

      Haahaaaahaa!!! Omg!! Bobby is so funny!!! :D
      I cant stop laughing!!

    8. Joanne says:

      Oh well his eye bags does distract me when watching House of Harmony and Vengeance. Gotta check out his recent photos to see if its true that his eye bags are gone. I wonder if the treatment is expensive..I want to try it too~

    9. exoidus says:

      Garfield the cat, haha that would make Ron the fat wolf :)

      Bobby perhaps you can the grandpa of the goddess making you the jade emperor, LOL

      • Veejay says:

        i’m waiting for Bobby to make fun of pervert Ron, flirty Toby, players Bosco & LF.

        • Fox says:

          So sad but Bobby is their best frd so he wont do it :p. Your wish dun come true, dear.

        • Veejay says:

          R u saying he made fun of Esther Kwan, florence kwok and etc because they are not their best friends? :P

          Dear, Bobby is a hillarious guy and whenever he make jokes, he meant it no harm.. even IF he make jokes on Ron, LF, Bosco and Toby, I bet he will make them less hostile but in a funny way. Therefore, I’m very anticipate to read his jokes about them.. bet they gonna be funny.

        • Fox says:

          Make fun and harmful joke is slightly different. Harmful joke wont make frds mad but intended joke with double meaning might lead to unfriendly moment.

          So your word choice was not correct?

          However I did like Bobby’s harmful jokes. Well, at least he dun tries to make himself bitter when he jokes. I guess thats why he is frd of many not like someone who always have double jokes and bitter.

        • Nicole says:

          Harmful or harmless? I think bobby’s jokes about esther and your and jessica are pretty harmless. And when he made fun of Raymond being late it was harmless too. He doesn’t seem to be one to have hidden meaning behind his jokes so I don’t think it will be bad if he jokes about Ron or Bosco.

        • Fox says:

          Harmless, sorry. My bad.

        • Veejay says:

          R u saying that if Bobby ever jokes on Ron, LF, Bosco and etc, it will be an intended jokes which will hurt these 3? as I aldy said “bobby is known as a hillarious man so whatever jokes he made, it will only be funny never hostile”.

          Like the chinese saying goes..”if you did nothing wrong, there is nothing to be afraid of even if the ghost knocks on your door” :P

        • Veejay says:

          Maybe you’ve misunderstood my sentence?

        • exoidus says:

          LOL Veejay,

          problem is that they know they did something wrong hence can’t withstand the fire as they are not made of pure gold :)

        • Nicole says:

          Some fans just are too sensitive. Like when Bobby made the joke about Raymond being late, it was actually saying that Raymond was late as he was so busy as his schedule was packed, but some fans took it wrong as well, and got upset that bobby was talking bad about Raymond.
          Like when we joke here about some idols, some fans go crazy as well. HEHE but it’s funny to make them go crazy, as the smallest thing will set them off.

        • Veejay says:

          I actually wanted to say the word “sensitive” and “overprotective” but nah.. it will only create more chaos lol.

        • Nicole says:

          Just say it :P No need to sugarcoat. Hehe

        • Funn Lim says:

          Nicole, it is a human condition call “read half never read all” syndrome.

        • Fox says:

          No, I’m saying that the word you used “make fun” was never existed in Bobby towards his friends. He did make some harmless jokes to them, but didn’t make fun of them with intentions or double meaning.

          It’s not about LF or Bosco or Ron or Toby but Bobby :). He has never done such thing, so why you put it to him :P? Dear, you also know that Bobby is a hilarious guy and friend of many. I said that Bobby is different to some ppl that like to step on others but act innocent and say double meaning jokes.

          Now dun know who is oversensitive, overprotect and also read the half :P.

        • Veejay says:


          Foremost, which of my word mentioned Bobby make intented jokes which will harm the 3, hmm? I think even Nicole understands my sentence that Bobby never has any ill intention making jokes about ppl which will caused discomfort etc.

          I think you’ve misinterpret my meaning. I think you still dont understand =/

        • Oktoberfest says:

          Fox, after reading all the comments above, i find that you’re indeed confused and sensitive is the best word to describe you :D

        • Fox says:

          I agree with you that Bobby never has intentional and harmful jokes or at least I have never seen, but in your first quote, you make him like someone who like to have double meaning jokes towards other ppl. The word “make fun” you said, rite? However, if you still don’t understand, Veejay, I have nothing to say :P. You and me, we are just too stubborn, so end the convo in here.

          Watever, Bobby is still friendly, dun like the fake innocent artists, lolz.

        • Veejay says:

          Whatever float your boat, dear. If that what make you happy :P :)

    10. Nicole says:

      i loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeee bobby. He’s always so humorous in his interviews.

    11. Anna says:

      Bobby is so funny. I just love him and cant wait to watch his next series.

    12. Erica says:

    13. Hannahh says:

    15. Larry 3 says:

      Ugh, he needs to grow his hair back too! http://i47.tinypic.com/b6zkpj.jpg

    16. Larry 3 says:

      I think Bobby’s eye bags worst TVB scene was in Dicey Business at last episode in the beach with Jessica at the end. His weird face makes his both eyes popped out. Wish, they put that in the theme video.

    17. Grace says:

      He is so cute!!!! Bobby & Eliza?? Match made in heaven hhahha…..

    18. Bridget says:

      Bwahahahaha. Bobby is hysterical!
