Gigi Lai Receives Award for Beauty Company

Since announcing her retirement from the entertainment industry in 2008, Gigi Lai (黎姿) has stayed out of the limelight and is instead focusing on raising her children and managing her brother Stephen Lai‘s (黎嬰) beauty company. The former TVB actress made a rare public appearance at the ERB Manpower Developer Award Scheme Presentation Ceremony recently. Attending the event as an owner of the beauty company, Gigi received an award on behalf of Stephen.

Gigi accepted an interview afterwards and was noticeably glowing with happiness. Due to the company’s success and attendance of many government organizations and large companies at the award ceremony, Gigi expressed that, after much discussion with her husband, Patrick Ma (馬廷強), the couple decided it would be beneficial to have Gigi attend and receive the award.

She reflected thoughtfully, “My brother started the company at the beginning, and I took over later. It has already been ten years since the change in operations. We [the company] are continuously recruiting talents. Capable people are very important for our company. I hope that our company can retain our staff. We continue to focus on cultivating our current talent and invest in training programs. To me, it is definitely a major challenge with many changes!”

On how the 44-year-old beauty maintains her youthful appearance, Gigi shared, “The most important things are your mentality and getting adequate rest. Attitude and health are very important. There is nothing more important than health. Actually, people with healthy moods and happy hearts are already beautiful. When you’re confident, you will be happy when you socialize. When people see that you are happy, then they will think you are beautiful!”

Although Gigi often rejected the idea of returning onscreen, she seemed hesitant when asked this time about a possible comeback. “I haven’t thought about it! But there are many people within the [entertainment] industry who have continued to contact me. Even companies in Mainland China would email my company because they don’t have my personal contact information. Right now, I will not seek out TVB, but I cannot say so for the future. But at this point in time, I will not!”
