After Florinda Ho (何超雲) publicly announced that she was dating Joel Chan, the couple’s romance has been raging hot. Last night, Florinda even accompanied Joel to meet TVB high-ranking executive Virginia Lok (樂易玲) at a restaurant in Causeway Bay and the trio then socialized over an Italian dinner.

Ever since receiving Florinda’s fondness, Joel Chan obviously become more carefree and content, even growing fatter as a result. While leaving the restaurant, Florinda even opened her mouth to defend Joel, “I am here for a job interview!” When asked whether the both of them would pair up as an onscreen couple too, Virginia responded, “I’m trying my best to persuade her.”

Ever since Florinda confirmed Joel’s position as her boyfriend, Joel’s prominence went up ten fold. Earlier on, Joel was revealed to have been allegedly “frozen” for fleeing to Europe to court Florinda without addressing things properly with TVB. However, last night, Joel was spotted with Virginia at a celebrity hot-spotting restaurant in Causeway Bay, “Da Domenico,” indulging in white wine, seafood and dining over Italian food. It can be seen that Joel was still highly valued by TVB. During the meeting, Florinda appeared to support her boyfriend Joel and even arrived to the restaurant beforehand with friend Vincent Choi to make the necessary arrangements. However, Virginia only arrived in a rush at approximately 9 PM at night.

Dined and Wined for Three Whole Hours

During their meeting, the reporters looked in from outside the restaurant and saw Florinda and company sitting at a table near the entrance. Throughout their meeting, Joel continuously kicked up the atmosphere and when Florinda saw reporters taking photographs, she casually flashed a “V” hand sign whereas Joel who was donned in a deep V-neck shirt politely waved to the media. In the end, Florinda’s version of Be My Guest took three hours of dining before they settled the bill and left the restaurant. In the meantime, they also ordered ice cream for the reporters outside to quench their thirst and relieve the heat.

When leaving, Joel took the lead and held the door for the two ladies (Florinda and Virginia). The trio also graciously stood together for a group photo by the paparazzi. Asked whether there were discussions about work, Florinda quickly opened her mouth and spoke, “Job interview, I came here for a job interview!” Upon hearing Florinda say this, reporters immediately asked whether she would pair up with Joel as an onscreen couple and film together too. In reply to this, Florinda immediately replied, “Just saying this for fun!” whereas Virginia who was standing at the side, smiled broadly until her eyes disappeared for a brief moment and responded, “I’m trying my best to persuade her.” (Reporter: Then if she’s willing to, you would also be willing to?)  “But she (Florinda) is not willing to!” However, when asked what role does she want to act the most, Florinda delightfully said, “The Great Empress Dowager lor! I would want to be Empress Dowager.” Obviously in reference to her father, Macau Casino King Stanley Ho’s (何鴻燊) previous huge compliment of Joel’s past role as an emperor.

No Intentions to Enter the Entertainment Circle

Joel then stood at the entrance of the restaurant with Florinda to send Virginia off first. Joel who was donned in a Japanese fashion outfit, matched Florinda’s outfit perfectly. Although Joel looked fatter than usual under the nourishment of love, his abs was still extremely prominent and pressed against his shirt. After which, the couple went back to Joel’s residency in Hong Kong Parkview.

Following up, reporters clarified with Florinda whether she was intending to enter the entertainment circle and develop her career from there. In reply to this, Florinda denied and said, “No way! I was only joking!”

      Joel disappeared without notice from TVB, but when he come back along with relationship news he’s welcomed with opening arms and big smiles instead of warnings. I think his career will rise higher

    I don’t think Florinda wants to enter the circle through TVB since she will not earn much and have to work hard. Since her family is already so rich, does she need to work so hard??? Even if she did want to enter the circle, I don’t think she would want to do it through TVB.

      Larry,
      “BTW, I still have power and its already flooded my backyard; wild weather ”

      Once again, we survived another disaster in NYC! *Hugs* It was kind of wild watching the trees sway in an animated dance due to the strong hurricane winds. The reporting of the hurricane snagged international headlines and my aunt in Hong Kong called in a panic. Overall, satisfied with the City’s emergency response level; we took the right precautions and everyone stayed home over the weekend, stocked up on food and prepared for the worst, which did not occur.

      I still don’t feel anything for this couple, but they are the rare couple that announce their relationship.

      I’ll be annoyed at couples that purposely flaunt their loving sweet flirts but the next time you see them they denied being a couple. That double Chan couple 😛
