[Celebrity Homes] A Glance Inside Lai Lok Yi’s Ocean View Home
Given that many children are stuck indoors during the COVID-19 pandemic, parents are racking their brains to keep their kids occupied at home. Now that actor Lai Lok Yi (黎諾懿) has more time on his hands, he has planned a lot of fun activities and homeschool lessons for his son. To keep fans updated, Lok Yi and his wife Nicole Lee (李潔瑩) would often share videos of their family life on social media and expose their luxurious residence in the process.
Netizens who have been enjoying the home videos noticed the apartment has an ocean view facing the Victoria Harbour. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows behind a large, round dining table lead to an open patio overlooking the ocean. In addition to the patio, there is a rooftop complete with a vegetable garden for growing tomatoes, hot peppers, lemons, and more.
Curious netizens launched into detective mode after seeing the lavish residence. They discovered that Lok Yi and Nicole rented out a 700-square-foot property in Sai Kung after marriage. However, the married couple decided to move back to the city for commute purposes. Hence, they are currently renting a duplex unit in a luxurious housing estate in Ho Man Tin.
Lok Yi’s Financial Situation
After Lok Yi married Miss Hong Kong finalist Nicole in 2014, he earned the nickname of “$500 Million Crown Prince” due to her wealthy background. Rumors also arose that his in-laws were worried about his financial situation, so they purchased a mansion for $40 million Hong Kong dollars as Lok Yi and Nicole’s wedding gift.
Although Lok Yi came from a poor background, as his family used to receive Comprehensive Social Security Assistance and lived in a subdivided room, he managed to go from rags to riches. His efforts at TVB finally paid off when he received recognition for his role as John Ma in the long-running sitcom Come Home Love <愛．回家>, allowing him to support his family of three today.
