The biggest surprise at the 2018 TVB Anniversary Awards may not be who the awards winners were, but instead Edwin Siu‘s (蕭正楠) revelation that he and Priscilla Wong (黃翠如) were already married since April.
Edwin’s variety show, Two Men in a Kitchen <兄弟大茶飯> helped him and Raymond Cho (曹永廉) clinch the Most Popular Partnership award. In his acceptance speech, Edwin said, “I want to thank my wife, Priscilla Wong! All along, I was thinking of all the romantic things to say to thank my wife. I really thought of many things and was nervous all night. I don’t even remember what to thank you for…. But you made me learn how to take care of others better, and for me to be a man. [Making this announcement tonight] is a big commitment because I’m saying it in front of the entire Hong Kong.” Edwin sweetly kissed Priscilla on stage after receiving the award.
Speaking with the press after the awards ceremony, Edwin revealed that he and Priscilla got married while on vacation in New Zealand in April. Sharing a humorous story about his first proposal attempt, Edwin said, “I proposed to her on a roller coaster, and even found Europe’s fastest roller coaster. But Priscilla got very scared when we reached the top. I took out the ring and told her to look, but she was too scared to look. I was afraid the ring would drop, so I stopped the proposal and my first attempt failed.” Edwin declined to reveal the details of his second proposal, saying his wife is too shy.
After registering their marriage, Edwin has been trying to find the perfect opportunity to announce the news. “But too many happy occasions happened afterward. Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎) got married, then Ruco Chan (陳展鵬) got married. Grace Chan (陳凱琳) became pregnant after, so I never had a chance to talk. Finally, I felt today is the perfect time to say it out!”
As to why he chose to announce his marriage at the TVB Anniversary, Edwin said, “I did the right thing tonight. We’ll have a good memory. Priscilla didn’t know about it in advance, but I had a hard time keeping it from her.”
Asked if he will hold a wedding banquet, Edwin said, “We’ll think about it! We decided to get married while on vacation, so we prefer to keep it low profile!” Priscilla chose to go to New Zealand, and the couple found a marriage witness spontaneously since their parents didn’t accompany them on the trip.
