Gigi Lai Hosts New Year’s Eve Party

Former actress, Gigi Lai (黎姿), has managed to slimmed down in time for the New Year. After giving birth to her third daughter, Pegella, in October 2012, the 41-year-old avoided the headlines and stayed at home to nurture her daughters.

On December 31, a much svelter Gigi and her family hosted a glamorous New Year’s Eve party at Sevva, a large restaurant located inside the Prince’s Building in Central. Gigi’s evening gown, including her jewelry accessories, cost over $1 million HKD. When asked whether or not she would try for a son in the coming year, Gigi just smiled and kept her head down.

Gigi’s New Year’s Eve party began around 7 PM. Her husband, Patrick Ma (馬廷強) was the first to arrive. Gigi’s parents arrived quickly afterwards. Gigi’s handicapped younger brother, Stephen Lai (黎嬰), arrived at the restaurant in a wheelchair with his girlfriend. When the reporters wished him a Happy New Year, Stephen smiled and clutched his girlfriend’s hand tightly.

In May 2007, Stephen became seriously wounded in a near-fatal traffic accident when a taxi he was riding on collided with another. Stephen was thrown out of his taxi and suffered severe blows on his head and back. Gigi took a break from her acting career from 2007 to 2008 to focus on caring her brother and his beauty clinic.

Gigi forked out almost her entire savings to pay for Stephen’s medical bills. His condition improved immensely after going through three major brain surgeries.

Christine Ng (伍詠薇) and her husband, Kasey Lin (練海棠), were also invited to the party. Christine revealed that Gigi was her matchmaker and said, “It was Gigi who introduced my husband to me. She plays a very important role in our lives. We haven’t had the chance to spend time with each other much after we started our own families. We only have time to gather together on these special occasions.”

For her New Year’s wish, Christine expressed that she hopes to be able to spend less time filming and more time working on her beauty company. “But most importantly, I wish for everyone to be happy and have good health.”

When asked if she hopes her good friend, Sharon Chan (陳敏之), would be able to marry soon, Christine laughed, “She already has a stable boyfriend. He is a great man. I’m not worried for her!”

        Or perhaps they’re not really in love and Gigi happens to have found someone who is able to care and provide for her which in return she is able to reciprocate it as well.

        Love is not always present in relationships or even marriage in many cases. That is why sometimes your husband may not be your soulmate.

        I have seen married couples who are happy for decades and even they have admitted to one another that they don’t have that kind of love for each other. But why do they work even without that main source of love? Honesty, trust, respect, more than anything acceptance for one another and many other factors contribute to happy and successful marriages and family makings.

          I agree with you Raina. It’s those inexperienced and ignorant who think all relationships are all that simple with just love.

          LOVE is so overrated. people marry for love and get divorce, so in the end, you get a few years of good life and then a very stressful period. And then you’re back to being lonely.

          A union between two people doesn’t necessarily have to stem from love because love dies.

          Of course love is NOT the one and only thing in a marriage or relationship, however, I feel that it is one of the most important things to a happy marriage. It is true that many couples last and look happy even though they don’t love each other,however, to truly have a happy marriage inside out, I feel love needs to be one of the elements…

        We think that Gigi Married her husband because he had the wealth to provide the care needed for her brother.

        She is a very good sister, giving up show business to help him and his clinic.

        I heard TVB doesn’t pay actors very well, I don’t think Gigi could have helped her brother get the best care if she had stayed an actress.

        I wonder how her brother is doing though, is his gf with him because she has been through it all with him or is it because of his connection to gigi?

        • HeTieShou replied:

          I wonder the same about her brother’s girlfriend and if she is staying with him due to his connection to Gigi and her husband. If her brother is disabled for life, I really wonder if she would stay with him?? However, if he gets taken care of well by Gigi and her husband then maybe she will since she will not have to do much.

      • Funn Lim replied:

        I think she loved him, even if he looks old enough to be her father. I think sometimes love isn’t defined by passion or compatibility in looks but perhaps in her case love is his ability to give her the security, the protection and a nurturing nature that she yearns. In the end maybe she just wants a father figure and yes he is rich. I am sure rich is the predominant factor since she wants to be taken care of but I won’t dismiss her as a gold digger. I think deep down there is mutual love and respect even if we may often ask why a troll like him ends up with a beauty like her.

      • HeTieShou replied:

        I think Gigi does love her husband, but it is probably not the typical passionate type of love that we always imagine with 2 people falling romantically in love with each other. However, it is probably the companionship type of love… But hey, only she would know if she truly loves him or not…

      Well come on. Besides being rich, I believe this man must have showered Gigi with lotsa love & respect. She had provided the support for her brother & I’m sure her husband was behind her all these while. Not many man can allow your wife to go to an extreme extend to help your siblings. You may deny but that’s the fact no matter how perfect man your hubby is. This man must have a lot to provide for Gigi, it’s not about money only. Why are ppl so subjective nowadays & judging someone based on the appearance? Funny how ppl think!

      I bet you Gigi was very lost, scared and worried when the tragedy happened to her brother. She admitted in one of her interview that Patrick Ma was there for her the entire time to lean her a shoulder and to help her in every way possible. She was very touch by it…maybe she find him attractive due to his success and how he shower her with love, kindness and respect and of course lots of presents. Love only grows from there on…Gigi looks happy, she have a family of her own, it’s something to be proud of plus her parents and brother are all being taken care of no worries. Isn’t thats what it matters?

        agree. there is more to a person aside appearance (though even i do look at appearance first).

        but this guy must have something extra. perhaps very attentive, understanding. and to be a succesful rich guy, i assume he is witty and knows when to catch opportunities.

        with her package, she could have married to other better looking or younger wealthy guy.

        i hope she will have a healthy baby boy soon. even if the husband adores her, she may feel pressure in general.

        a women who sacrifice her love life for her family is very touching.her husband really knows when to take the chance huh. but isnt it is a little bit low to pursue someone on this way? i think if the tragedy with her brother didnt take place,she had never marry to him.

          So, what is not low?

          Is it better for the guy who has the ability to help and support stand around and let the woman he loves face her difficult problem herself and only start courting her when she’s through with her difficulties? That should be more genuine and honorable and not low?

          I bet if a handsome and young guy did what Patrick Ma did for Gigi, you will exclaim ‘How sweet, how much he loves her!’.

          I guess in your mind, love can only exist between people of equal age and equal beauty.

          From what I heard, he dated her for like 7 years beforehand too so it’s not like she agreed to marry him due to her brother’s accident only.. But honestly, no one knows for sure if she loves him or not, she is the only one that would know that…

        I heard that he once said “stop working, I will take care of you for life”. Heard that Gigi was soooo touched by that and many of the things that he did for her and her family so she agreed to marry him. She even mentioned how he not only loves her but her family as well(which shows since he helped to pay for her brother’s medical bills) and that is really rare for any girl or guy to find someone that no only loves them but their family as well. I think he has many great traits that attracted her as well besides just money.

          probably, since when she was younger i think she has been dating ugly n older men too so at that stage of her life, she probably needs $$$ more than anything. i mean, shes NOT exactly that rich acting for TVB right? this rich dude came along, i guess they dont really care just go for it for the security. but isnt the guy handicapped as well? n he looks so old too…
