Ali Lee on When is a Good Time to Get Married

Though Ali Lee (李佳芯) has dated ViuTv host Danny Chan (陳炳銓) for six years and they are currently living together, the couple is not yet ready for marriage. Sharing thoughts on when she thinks is a good time to get married, Ali said, “Love can sometimes be fragile, but it also takes time to know if a person is right for you. In the end, dating and getting married are two different things. Both of which require time and fate.”

Thoughts on Dating and Marriage

With news that the couple bought a property together, many thought that they are looking to settle down. Responding to the rumors, Ali said, “Buying a property is something I’ve always wanted to do, but property prices are still not falling.  It will depend on fate. In my heart, it takes fate to buy property and get married. Buying a property depends on money and work. Love depends on the accumulation of hard work.”

When asked when she will get married, Ali responded, “Marriage is actually an impulse. During dating, there can still be two separate individuals as they walk together to help each other grow and appreciate each other. The idea of a marriage is whether two people are willing to lose some of their habits. It’s no longer two separate people, but two people who have to put aside a part of themselves and become one. That’s the difference to dating.”

Ali added, “It is not easy in this era. Everyone will have their own ideas, requirements, and vision. Two people will have to let go of themselves. Other than fate, I can’t think what else is needed. Maybe it’s a blessing.”

While Ali wants to keep her relationship private, her status as a public figure makes it difficult, so she has found a new way to handle the attention on her personal life. “When I was young, I also wanted to know about celebrities’ lives. When there are gossips, I would want to know too. I can put myself in that position and understand it. The media would write juicy gossip. They are curious and want to pry into your personal life. I try to understand this while finding a balance.”

    Ali is TVB’s best actress. She sounds intelligent based on her views on marriage

    I honestly was never a big fan of Ali and felt that she had a lot of room for improvement in her acting, but reading this article made me appreciate her more.

      @rayne She has charisma, an abundance of it which other actresses lack. To be honest, I wasn’t that engaged or impressed with Who Wants A Baby?, but she has definitely improved consistently. In DBZ, she is more natural, playing a completely different character, and has immersed herself, whether through her facial expressions or body language.

      I also like that she is mature and outspoken, even though she, unfortunately, has been punished for that. These recent uptick in articles hopefully mean that she is being allowed to make a full comeback.

        @potatochip I agree! Ali is one of those artists whom I’ve felt neutral toward since her debut – meaning that I’m not particularly impressed by her acting, but I’m not turned off by it either. Basically, I’m comfortable watching her onscreen, but I wouldn’t tune in to a series / program just because she is in it. As a person, she does seem intelligent and well-spoken and definitely has high EQ (which is obvious from the gracious way she has handled the whole unfortunate debacle over her technically non-controversial comments – overall, I felt that whole situation was stupid and silly and blown out of proportion by a few oversensitive dimwits with too much time on their hands…). I also appreciate her personality – low key, genuine, not afraid to speak her mind even if it gets her in trouble – which, more and more is exceedingly rare in the HK entertainment industry….in this day and age where the trend is for artists to either give lip service and tell people what they want to hear or suppress their thoughts in order to protect their careers, an artist like Ali who has substance, personality, and good attitude is definitely refreshing! I’m actually looking forward to reading her book and seeing what other insights she brings to the table.

        @llwy12 do let me know if it’s worth reading, I’m always skeptical about artiste’s writing skills

        @conan2209 Sure, will do! Still waiting for the book to arrive via snail mail (hopefully in a few weeks).

        I totally understand about being skeptical of artists’ writing skills, though I’ve found that it really depends on the artists and what it is they are writing about. The 2 books that Sunny Chan wrote about his experiences raising his autistic son were really good. Wayne Lai wrote a book about his craft (acting) that was also quite good. On the other hand, I’ve read some really bad ones too (mostly autobiographies where the celebrities spend too much time glorifying their accomplishments, lol). Let’s see which side Ali’s book will fall in…

        @llwy12 I am interested too. I unfortunately can’t read Chinese, so will have to make do with a summary. That’s really neat about the books by Sunny and Wayne.

        @llwy12 oh, didn’t know Wayne has a book! May I have the title? I’ll try to get it online! Based on interviews with Ali, it’s all about her growing up and her personal experiences, nothing glorifying. She mentioned she didn’t even want photos of herself in it but was dissuaded from the idea

        @conan2209 Wayne’s book is called 戲劇浮生:黎耀祥論演技與人生. It came out back in 2010. I bought mine on yesasia.com back when it came out, but when I checked recently, doesn’t look like it’s available anymore. Here’s the wiki page that has more details…hopefully this will help you search for it online: https://zh.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/戲劇浮生:黎耀祥論演技與人生

        @llwy12 I too also want to read Ali’s book she seems very down to earth and mature with good insight on life. Is the book only available in HK and in Asia? Its not available internationally right? Just cuz I’m based in UK. I too cannot read Chinese well only a few basic words here and there but I have friends that can translate for me hopefully lololol

        @oligodendrocytes Officially, it’s only being released in HK (and possibly other parts of Asia), so you won’t be able to buy it in bookstores overseas of course, but you should be able to order it online from another country if it’s available. I’m in the United States and I usually order from yesasia.com…they are based in HK so the shipping will be a bit more expensive though. You can also try to see if other websites have it (though there aren’t too many reputable ones for Chinese books unfortunately). If you have relatives in HK, the other option to consider is ask them to buy it from the local bookstore and mail it to you.

        @llwy12 it was available to ship internationally as pre-order, but now in the official link there’s only shipping for HK.

        @bubbles23 At Yesasia? Hmm…odd. I actually ordered mine a few days after it came out (didn’t pre-order it) but I didn’t have any problems with it shipping internationally. In fact, I order from them all the time and except for a few instances where they couldn’t get the book from the supplier in time, I rarely have any issues with the books getting here (well, except for the amount of time it takes…sometimes I have to wait a month but it will still get here).

        You might want to check to see if your preferences are properly updated. Mine automatically shows shipping preference United States when I log in and even when I change the language to show everything in Chinese, it still shows that I’m viewing the U.S. version. I created my account a long time ago so I don’t remember exactly but I think there is something that needs to be set up during account creation where you have to choose the specific country/region you’re in and it affects what products you have access to….

        @llwy12 not yesasia, the preorder is through the publisher I believe. It’s the link in her fanclub instagram.

        @bubbles23 Ah, ok. Yea, that pre-order thing was a special event that was limited only to HK. I think originally she was going to officially debut the book at the HK Book Fair (since the release date for the book coincided with that), but since HKBF got cancelled due to COVID, those plans all got scrapped. Hopefully her fans are still able to get the book via other means! 🙂

        @bubbles23 Yup, it’s available on Yesasia right now. Here’s the link in case you need it (note that this links to the U.S. site): https://www.yesasia.com/us/where-the-heart-is/1094092191-0-0-0-en/info.html
