Yesterday, Chilam Cheung (張智霖) held an autograph signing session for his new album Time of the Moment, a limited edition CD single that comes with a 24-page photobook. The CD single, which consists of Chilam’s rendition of Triumph in the Skies <衝上雲霄> theme “Songs of Years Gone By <歲月如歌> and an instrumental of “Fly Me to the Moon”, only had 3,900 copies printed.
Due to a schedule clash, Chilam expressed his regret for not being able to attend the TVB Anniversary Gala, which will be held on November 19. “I know that there will be a lot of prizes handed out that night. I really want to win one myself, but I guess I’ll just have to leave these opportunities for my colleagues.”
Chilam is a popular favorite to win Best Actor at the TVB Awards, as his drama Triumph in the Skies 2 still ranks as the number-one highest-rated drama of the year. Despite the series ratings success, the pilot drama was criticized for being unrealistic. Chilam said, “As actors there is only so much we can do. We work on our appearances and portrayals. It’s hard for us to handle the research or creative aspects of the script too. We’re not producers. However, I’m sure that there were some situations in the series that real-life pilots and air hostesses could relate to.”

The TVB Anniversary Gala is often a star studded event, where TVB artists get a chance to shine in the various performances.. Oceane Zhu (朱璇) was signed on to appear in a dance segment for TVB’s Gala Anniversary, but she pulled herself out of the performance last minute, citing health reasons. “I was just released from the hospital. I was vomiting, fainting and had to be admitted to the hospital. The doctor told me that I have gastritis and family history of heart problems. I’m not suitable to do any intense exercise.”
