• @bubbles23 I think it has a lot to do with popularity at the time. She was just one of the actresses no one really cared about. I dont think her acting is that great, and her high pitched voice still grates at me. Right now most the previous Fadans have left TVB so naturally she is left to fill that space.
  • @coralie I felt the same about everything you said here.
  • @wm2017 Exactly, I would expect most in showbiz have low education anyway. Not shocking in the slightest.
  • I liked her in Terrace House with her kind of awkward persona. Didnt think she'd stay on the screens after this. Looks like she may even beat the Guilty Samarai to Hollywood.
  • @megamiaow actually, it isnt that bad. I saw it as volunteer work lol. As for the pay, it was low. Everytime i brought this up, my parents would say who is paying for the house and household things blablabla. Couldnt argue with that. However, I'm thankful that I still get to stay at home at 26 cause im finishing my college and dont have work now and my parents also stopped with their shop. My parents didnt ask a penny from me for rent etc.
  • @dreamer Ive seen many examples of this growing up in the typical chinese takeaway scene too and its unfortunate foe the children of these families. It doesnt sound like they paid you anywhere enough.
  • @megamiaow I agree and I saw some women who tried to bleach their skin to the point of permanently damaging it. There was this woman who did that on the show the Price of Beauty. Her skin was permanently damaged to the point that she could not go into the sun without her skin burning. Her husband even left her because of it. It was very tragic. People even get dangerous injections to get lighter skin which is bad for your health. I would not be shocked if Fan Bing Bing did those things. She looks sickly pale now that it no longer looks natural. Yes she was not that pale in a Princess Pearl.
  • @jimmyszeto The whole asian markets skin products is marketed towards getting a whiter face, I wouldnt be surprised if she has tried to bleach it. Its just one of Chinas misconceptions about what makes you beautiful. Being skinny is another. Her face wasnt that pale in Princess Pearl.
  • Hes got the right idea, health is more important than some pecs.
  • @potatochip Chilam has a baby face so am not surprised he still look like a kid. There are a couple male stars/singers around his time the same way. I can't remember their names atm. @megamiaow I wonder if tanning beds has studies or proven that it has addictive "properties." Like how people are addicted to risky things bc of the adrenaline rush.
  • @potatochip I think people who tan actually get addicted. Its a shame., Chilam is only one year younger than hin.
  • @megamiaow I know, no kids and yes supporting parents but I am sure you can be better to yourself. We work hard and deserve to splurge once a while and esp if you are able to. As the saying goes, you can't take it w/you when it's time to go.
  • Probably get more for your money buying outside HK with the over inflated house prices there.
  • @jimmyszeto Well tbh if I made his kind of money, Id at least pay business to get a bit more legroom.
  • So he's frugal because he's eating cup noodle....did they expect him to be chowing down on caviar instead
  • @megamiaow They don’t really enforce it but even if they do, there is a threshold that renders the rule not applicable to most Americans. That rule is meant to prevent millionaires (like the Rupert Murdochs and Donald Trumps of the world) from trying to evade taxes by putting their money into foreign bank accounts...majority of Americans (like close to 99%)are never going to make the amount of money needed for that rule to apply to them (and the millionaires will always find other exemptions that will make that rule either not apply or insignificant)....
  • @megamiaow This is what I found and I'm wondering how effective are they enforcing it though? Every year we all required to file our income tax returns (federal) with this agency in USA. It depends where we live, we also file state's tax also. We, the taxpayers know how painful it is to pay for the freeloaders - NO MATTER WHERE they came from. “If you are a U.S. citizen or resident alien, the rules for filing income, estate, and gift tax returns and paying estimated tax are generally the same whether you are in the United States or abroad. Your worldwide income is subject to U.S. income tax, regardless of where you reside.” https://www.irs.gov/individuals/international-taxpayers/taxpayers-living-abroad
  • @megamiaow I heard about that but I truly wonder if they enforce that, especially if a person is just born in the US but never really lived there. For example, Peter Ho was born in the US in 1975 but I wonder if he ever truly lived in the US. Therefore, you truly wonder if he pays any taxes at all. However, if he wanted immigrate to America, he would get priority as he is a citizen that was born here.
  • @dramas4me On Wiki, it says the US is one of only 2 countries in the world to tax citizens who live in other countries (including babies born and don't return). So doesnt that resolve the issue of what members claim about them not paying their share of taxes? Im not from US so not familiar with the systems. Please do enlighten me if this isnt the case.
  • @megamiaow Never mind ... you are debating about something that has nothing to do with the original post where many in the mainland are using a loop hole for their children to be born in a country other than china in order to get citizenship by paying into the country of their choice, US or Canada. I agree with you that the NHS or our "US" fund foreign travellers who abuse the use of the NHS system and run off and do not pay. This is NHS issue and the Government need to give the NHS better powers on how they administer this whilst ensuring they do not delay care to anyone especially those that are critical. I know first hand from a friend that works in the UK temporarily and is not British Passport holders have been asked to produce their passports before they have been treated at the A&E and paid after being treated for appendicitis so the system isnt totally free to abuse, its just each NHS trust seem to not have a uniform way of administering foreign travellers that seek the help through the NHS. In the US and Canada the first thing they ask is do you have medical insurance and so does some European countries.
