Bosco Wong to Open Malaysia’s Largest Restaurant!

The “Seven Year Itch” appeared to curse couples across the world. Due to filming War of In-Laws <我的野蠻奶奶>, Bosco Wong (黃宗澤) and Myolie Wu (胡杏兒) have been dating for seven years. This “older woman, younger man” relationship was severely criticized by the public initially, even postulating that the couple would split quickly. In fact, their relationship continued to grow steady throughout the years. Lucky in love and his career, Bosco admitted that he did not possess wedding plans yet. Entering the “stable” stage, Bosco did not possess the itch [to cheat] in the relationship. Over the next five days, Bosco Wong will share the stories of his love life, family, and friendships with the Oriental Daily newspaper.

Bosco noted, “I always wished to handle relationship issues in a low-key manner. Maintaining the current status is pretty good. Since it involves two people, I do not wish to state things too explicitly.

“I never worried about the ‘Seven Year Itch.’ I have never possessed this way of thinking. To be honest, if a person were to feel itchy [and wished to cheat], it can happen anytime, without the need to wait for seven years. When faced with rumors, my head will itch instead! Ha ha! There is no avoidance in the spreading of rumors. I will normally laugh off the rumors after reading about them. I am used to the circulation of rumors with the release of a new series, such as Lives of Omission <潛行狙擊>, upon which I was linked to my costar, Kate Tsui (徐子珊). Fortunately, our personalities are open-minded and we will not place too much importance upon these rumors. As long as you do not regard the rumors with importance, then they will not be able to bother you. I am only concerned about my work.”

Marriage Prompted By a Moment’s Notice

“Some people say that when a relationship approaches a certain stage, it is necessary to get married in order to sustain it. If two people are happy together, there is no need to deliberately maintain it. For example, Tony Leung (梁朝偉) and Carina Lau (劉嘉玲) dated for many years before they got married recently.  Timing is very important in marriage; perhaps the urge to get married may be prompted by a moment’s notice. Currently, we are able to give space to each other. I do not know how to explain it, but anyhow, it feels comfortable. Perhaps you can say that right now, both of us do not have any expectations towards the other person.

“At this moment, I do not have plans to get married. When I was younger, I wished to get married at 30-years-old. However, after turning 30-years-old, I do not feel that urge. There are too many things I wish to do. Getting married and having children require good planning, since I have high standards for my dream house, in which I wish to live in a penthouse. It’s very expensive! I am also a bit of a ‘neat freak’ and wish that my home looks very beautiful!” 

Set Michael Miu As Target

“I have a blueprint for my future family life and hope it will be similar to Michael Miu (苗僑偉): married with a son and daughter, upon which I will own a business and be able to act occasionally to satisfy my interests, so that I can continue to play in life. If I were to have children, then it’s necessary to have at least several months off to take care of them. In the industry for so long, I firmly believe that the timing of encounters are very important in this field. You can not compensate for this timing of opportunities; if no one wished to cast me in a production, then it will not matter how much I put in my efforts or how much I try.

“As people say, by 30-years-old, a person should be established in life. All along, I have diversified my investments, such as buying gold, properties, and blue-chip stocks, since they are steady investments that do not need frequent management. My mother will be retiring soon, so I gave her money to open an optical store to keep her busy in her retirement years.”

Opening Malaysia’s Largest Restaurant

”For a long time, I possessed a desire to open a restaurant in Hong Kong. Since the rental amounts in Hong Kong were astronomical, I decided to invest in a restaurant business in Malaysia with a friend instead. This business is also a gift for my mother, as I will only visit the restaurant once in awhile. The restaurant will feature a live band. I invested a seven figure sum in the restaurant, which is currently undergoing renovation. At 8,000 square feet, I believe that the restaurant will be the largest restaurant in Malaysia! The rent was cheap, ha ha; if you were to use the money in Hong Kong, you cannot even rent a 300 square feet apartment!”

Shopping With Myolie Wu

Bosco Wong and Myolie Wu started dating after portraying an onscreen couple in War of In-Laws at the end of 2004. Allegedly, Bosco successfully pursued Myolie through the heavy use of text messages. Although the pair did not public admit that they were dating, they were recognized as a couple. Bosco and Myolie did not mind appearing at promotional events together or partnering in 2007’s War of In-Laws 2. Last year, Bosco and Myolie film mainland drama, Racecourse <跑马场> together. In February 2011, the press photographed the pair shopping together in the Causeway Bay district. Earlier, Bosco revealed that he had lost his diamond earrings, upon which Myolie admitted that she gave the earrings to Bosco as a gift.

Kate Tsui Hopes to See Bosco Wong and Myolie Wu Get Married

Due to their intimate scenes in Lives of Omission, Boso Wong and Kate Tsui shared romantic rumors earlier. However, it turned out that Kate and Bosco’s “official girlfriend,” Myolie Wu, were good friends and aside from not bearing a grudge,  they joked about the rumors when they met. Regarding Bosco and Myolie 7-year relationship, Kate laughed, “I am very happy for them! Although they seem to alternate between admitting and not admitting their dating status at times, they have gotten along very well together over the past few years. I am very happy for them and really wish to see them get married!”

Jayne: I hope Bosco doesn’t make Myolie wait into her 40s until he fulfills all the things he wishes to accomplish in life!

Since Bosco is good friends with Michael Miu and they share similiar personalities, I did sense Bosco has more of a business rather than an artistic streak in him. Bosco seems to have high aspirations and good planning to acquire increased wealth, by investing his filming earnings into diversified business operations. Currently, he plans to open an optical store and restaurant in Malaysia; that’s a lot going on. I can see that his decision to open a restaurant in Malaysia may have been influenced by Eric Tsang, whom I believe also owns a restaurant business there. Hope Bosco’s mother possesses good business acumen as well.

Does anyone else have the inside scoop about the largest restaurant soon to open in Malaysia?

    ROFL Myolie also don’t look like she’s ready to settle down and get married. What’s with her big sister status in TVB just get starting. Getting married and have kids will slow an actress down. It’s true 😛

        Feel that Moylie and Bosco have a very easygoing relationship, as in they feel comfortable with each other, and they fit each other in terms of personality and ambitions, etc.

        7 years is a long time to get a good understanding of your partner. I am optimistic that they treasure this relationship.

        Yah nowadays, this generation do not want to get married early. Thirty is still too young for women, and men do not want to settle down until nearing 40.

        I guess it’s because young people feel that they have so many things to do, nowadays, 30 years old is not enough for them to accomplish all we want. And women at 30 still look beautiful, e.g. Kate and others.

        But you know, I secretly always envy those twenty nine or something females who already have 2 children, and they are still gorgeous and they can still do what they want in their lives.

        Like alot of female stars, e.g. Gigi, Michelle Reis, etc, they were nearing 40 when they gave birth. If they had given birth when they were younger, they could have maybe more children. And since they are so beautiful, their children would be gorgeous too. They can be a young, beautiful mom, with cutesy kids.

        I envy Heidi Klum, she was a top Victoria Secret’s model. She now has 4 children, over the years, and she looks gorgeous, and she still has a good career in media and her Project Runway franchise.

      Kidd,
      With the restaurant at 8,000 square feet, it shouldn’t be hard to find out the name and location once it opens due to its claim as the largest in Malaysia. 🙂

    • jayne replied:

      Btw, how much would a 8,0000 square feet restaurant space in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia cost? Bosco said that he invested a 7 figure sum and if he applied the same amount of money, he would not be able to rent a 300 sq ft space in Hong Kong.

      On the other hand, Stephen Huynh mentioned that he saved $500,000 HKD to open his French restaurant at North Point Terrace, which is a prime lunch area for people who work in the busy Central district. Stephen’s restaurant is located in prime rental area; his rent must be astronomical.

        It sounds like a good location for Stephen which means a good start. I’m curious about Bosco’s location too. If he open that big restaurant in smaller cities where rent is cheap, won’t the consumer power be smaller too?

        I lived in Malaysia. If I not mistaken, saw a newspaper saying that Bosco’s restaurant is in Ipoh, Malaysia. I honestly advice for Bosco is ..doing business in Malaysia need to follow-up and must often check the business and it is better to open it in Kuala Lumpur(Capital) because the population in town is huge.

        Sheesh. If everyone just open their restaurants in KL, other states will only have kopitiams. Other cities are not ghost towns. They also have people living there. Other cities also need restaurants. Other cities also have rich people that want to dine in nice restaurants.

        And yes, you are not mistaken. Bosco’s restaurant is in Ipoh. Maybe you should go there for a visit and see how the place is doing before giving this doom conclusion.

    I never heard of this before and I research that she is only older than Bosco 1 year. What’s up with some of the Hong Kong people? I think they are really cute as a couple. I agreed that both seems like they are not in a rush to get married since both their careers are at their prime.

    By the way, I saw Bosco as one of the international celebrity models for UNIQLO.

    Malaysia “ringgit” has higher value than HongKong “dollar” and Bosco claimed the rent in Msia is cheap, he must be super rich for renting a 8,000 square ft shop…

    Login or Register before you can reply to Veejay
    • Fox replied:

      1 Ringgit = 2-2.5 HKD but the rental fee in HK is more expensive than HK. Such as in Msia, rent a 8000 square ft shop costs you 1 million ringgits (example, not real fee), equal to 2.5 million HKD, but in HK the rental fee of 8000 square ft shop is 10 million HKD (example), mean it’s still more expensive.

      • Veejay replied:

        Yeah, Hk’s shops or apartments or houses have always known as “expensive” or too costly to rent. And HK is famous with many tourism spots etc which escalated the renting price there if compare to Msia which is still “developing” not like in HK.

        But in Msia here, some ppl are still poor/struggling to cope with the high cost of living with everything went up esp in price. So when Bosco said it’s cheap renting in msia made me think he’s super rich lol because only those really rich can hire such a huge place..

        I wonder where Bosco will open his restaurant in Msia.. must be KL since everything is centralised here.

      • Veejay replied:

        Ipoh has more chinese population but consumer power at Ipoh is just so-so. It would be wiser if Bosco opens his restaurant in KL since more young ppl would visit it as KL is centralised with shops/malls/cinemas etc. Bosco can also sell his food in a better price in KL since ppl here are used with heavy spending lifestyle… but I heard Penang is another 2nd major developed city which many new shops has opened there like the “snoopy restaurant” where you can find all Snoopy mechandise and foods there..the only one Snoopy restaurant in Penang.

    Just went to Eric Tsang’s “restaurant” here at BTS “berjaya times square” last week, the shop sells bubble teas at very low price, hence attracted many customers during the opening. I’m not sure if Eric opens other “restaurants” in Msia but the one I went wasn’t really a restaurant but a shop that sell bubble teas.

        I heard that it’s called Coffee Concept. Not sure if it has opened yet coz I can’t find in online directory.

        Eric Tsang bubble tea stall is not doing badly, but competition is very stiff, like from Chatime. More strategic locations, marketing ploy and also drinks are nice and affordable.

        Very unusual way of thinking for business. This also shows his seriousness about coffee. He wants people to come to his shop because they enjoy the coffee provided, not because the shop belongs to him.

      The ‘Ice Ice Baby’ franchise is owned by Paul Chun I read. The food there is quite nice. The Ipoh branch was doing well until they change the cook or something. My mom said after the taste of its food change, business became less good and the shop finally closed down. But, the Penang branch is still standing.

      ‘The Flame’ franchise owned by Cheng Ho Nam fair less well. Many of ‘The Flame’ outlet has closed down liao.

        If I’m correct, among TVB stars Tavia Yeung used to have a business too that she opened for her mum in a HK mall but it flopped and closed down too.

        @Masaharu,

        The stop that Tavia open, is it the boutique shop that was opened quite some time ago? She invited Sharon Chan, Christine Ng etc to cut ribbon rite?

        Masaharu,
        Didn’t Tavia open a craft store in the mall? Personally, I find the craft market to be very difficult, as people don’t necessarily need the goods and may chose to spend dollars on other stuff.

        Restaurant businesses need heavy cash flow to operate due to high rents and payroll. The failure rate of restaurants closing down in NYC is very high due to cash flow problems. However, if the food and other components are good, they are obviously huge money makers.

        Bosco’s restaurant strategy was likely to open a place that would make a lot of noise upon its opening, due to its 8,000 square feet size and claim as the largest restaurant in Malaysia. Maybe he didn’t want to open a little bubble tea or dessert shop because he was willing to take that risk and hope for bigger profits. I do sense a lot of business ambition in him. He’s quite diversified in his wealth and investments for being only 30. The investment sum of 7 figures is reasonable, I think worth the chance, even if it means a learning process for him. I don’t think this will be the last restaurant he opens given his former interest in being a chef and interest in culinary arts.

        My personal opinion is that among the recent celebrities, Selena Li’s makeup school may have the most sound business plan. I think bridal studios would be a nice operation to run for a female celebrity as well.

        A celebrity’s own clothing line, such as Edison Chen’s CLOT, is also a good idea. A lot of American celebrities, such as Jessica Simpson, lend their name to clothing lines, shoes, perfumes etc. I wonder why not more Chinese celebrities do the same. Surely, Andy Lau launching his own mens suit collection would attract some customers?

        Another interesting note is that in NYC’s Chinatown, the main triad leaders are also savvy businessmen who prefer to invest in restaurant operations in Chinatown, usually huge seafood banquet halls able to accomodate up to 1,000 wedding guests. They have the deep pockets to make the cash flow operations work and hire the best chefs. Restaurants are a great cash-based business to avoid the tax authorities.

        Veejay and Jayne, I forgot what shop Tavia opened but I remember that she invited some friends for the opening, and later I heard the shop didn’t do well and out of business.

        swtlav3ndar, no not this one. There is another store that she opened for her mum a few years earlier than this.

        I found a news after the store closed, it was a wool/craft store.

        Tavia Yeung wants to make her mom a boss again

        Last night, Patrick Tang, Angela Tong, and Tavia Yeung attended the countdown event at Tseung Kwan O. In the new year, Angela hopes that the stock market will rise to help her new series that involves the stock market to have high ratings. Tavia’s new year’s resolution is to reopen her wool/crafts store (???) that she had to close not that long ago. Seeing her mother unwilling to let this settle, Tavia plans to find a new location to reopen the store for her mother in 3-4 months

        Tavia opened a craft shop no wonder it’s not thriving. Or maybe the store has a bad location or management.

    eh? I thought Bosco already had a restaurant chain in Malaysia, Kim Gary? His face is always on the menu and stuff. I’m confused..

    But it would be cool if he opened his restaurant in Penang or even KL, I’m a bit worried about opening such a big restaurant in Ipoh. Hope things turn out well.

      Bosco has been the spokesperson for Kim Gary for many years, but I’m not sure if he will still be one after this since he’s opening his own restaurant.

      From Bosco’s optical event news(in PENANG), he’s co-opening the new IPOH restaurant with the owner of the optical business he’s currently being spokesperson of. Somehow through years of cooperation they’ve become business-friends.

      Haha yeah I’m worried about the prospects too since IPOH sounds like a market with small purchasing power.

        Masaharu,
        Thanks on the additional details behind Bosco’s restaurant. I knew I could count on you! 🙂

        Bosco does seem to network very well with people. Aside from being able to make friends easily, he appears to be the type to call people up and maintain contact (such as meeting Michael Tse every week after the filming of “Lives of Omission.”)

        I’m glad to hear that a local Malaysian is leading the effort in the new Ipoh restaurant, perhaps it will give better understanding of local people’s taste in food. For this venture, althoughs Bosco is an investor, he is probably the minor investor such that he is lending his name to help market the restaurant more. If he and his mother do not anticipate to be involved on a daily basis, then his business partner likely has the larger ownership and running the helm of the operations. Anyhow, sure beats just endorsing someone else’s restaurant.

        Thanks for the image! Haha Myolie sent such a big message congratulating the store opening.

        The optical store looks quite spacious from the photos, probably 1,000 square feet including back examination area.

        Again, I find it amazing how much Bosco has accomplished business wise. Earlier, I was surprised when he said he made a lot of money stocking up on red wine and reselling it for good profits, therefore rewarding himself with a red hot Audi.

        Good for him that he is not splurging on his dream house with his newfound income, but chose to invest in new business opportunities instead.

    “For a long time, I possessed a desire to open a restaurant in Hong Kong. Since the rental amounts in Hong Kong were astronomical, I decided to invest in a restaurant business in Malaysia with a friend instead.”

    Why does every HK-ers love to come to Malaysia (I assume KL) to open coffee shops, restaurants? Our food is better than in HK, to bring into our shores HK food (I assume) at the price of high end HK price is not gonna make good business. If it is reasonable, food is good, it will do well. If it is expensive, food is good, I am sorry to say Bosco, you will sink. We Malaysians eat good food, not brand name. But brand name and good food is a good combination.

        We also can’t guarantee that high end expesnive restaurants are clean..my friend said she visited a high end restaurant in the heart of city KL and was shocked to see the kitchen at the back of the restaurant filled with stinky with rubbish, smelly unwashed plates etc, flies all over those raw meat.

        Haha, those places have the best eats but it’s better not to know what goes on in the kitchens’ there 😛 And because those place are just regular hawker places with no fancy deco and stuff, many youngsters now prefer to go to the more ‘high class’ areas to eat even if the food is not as good. Sad but true.

      Ah yes, but the young Malaysians nowadays go more for brand name foods (and all other branded goods) than for the roadside hawkers. But I would say it’s not just in Malaysia, it’s happening everywhere. Decadence is becoming a lifestyle choice now.. haih.

        Iced Lemon Tea. They make the best. And what is with their meat? So tender. A lot of tenderizer? But I do like the fact their portion is much much much much bigger than ours.

        Was in Beijing, can’t really find an identifiable Beijing food (peking duck is so expensive!!!!) except for how to say, those fruit covered in sweets? Ping Tang Hu Lu issit? The best. Unbeatable. Again meat so tender. And yes yes beef noodle at those small shops are great. Price is great also. Portion is little meat, loads of noodle. I was very happy, since so darn cold, everything tasted good if they’re hot.

        Never try meat at HK before but i certainly love beef noodle in Msia.

        Starbucks serve different kind of coffee from the kopitiam shop type. Kopitiam doesn’t have espresso which I like. But, I seldom go starbucks either. Only once in a while.

        One thing I don’t like about restaurants like Kim Gary is, their food is always big size. Too much for me. When I finish the whole thing, I often become too full. Sometimes, I couldn’t finish the food. That’s why I like Ice Ice Baby. Their food portion is not too big. Just the right size for me.

        CY, Ping tang hu lu is awesome! Not too sweet at all. Just right and I was hoping to buy the sweet itself but can’t find. I am not sure what’s the fruit they always use but grape ones are refreshing. Kinda obsessed and can be selling from RMB2 to RMB8, depending on location.

        But the best Ping tang hu lu was in Japan. Why? I was in Kamakura at the main temple, huge festival and the huge fuji crunchy apple covered in the same sweet (what is it called?!) selling for 300 yen which is expensive BUT darn it, so delicious because the apple itself is top quality.

        Interestingly my friend first thing asked was did I eat street food and did I fall ill? I ate only those hu lu and the smoked potato? Smoked “fan shu”? and I did not rush to the toilet. Clean.
