Grace Chan Blasted for Vacationing in Africa

Due to tie the knot in December, Roxanne Tong (湯洛雯) and Kenneth Ma’s (馬國明) wedding is speculated to be held in Bali with approximately 60 guests attending. Although good friends after filming A Fistful of Stances <鐵馬尋橋>, Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎) recently made comments about not going to Kenneth’s wedding or attending the Fistful Family meetups since he is too busy after having children. However, Kevin’s wife Grace Chan (陳凱琳) recently vacationed in South Africa with her friend.

In the last 13 years, the Fistful Family were close friends and would often gather for dinner parties, birthdays, and holidays. When each member got married and had children, their spouses and children would also be invited. Things seemed to change two years ago. Since Kenneth and Kevin filmed 2021’s Kids’ Lives Matter <星空下的仁醫>, they were never seen photographed together again. Some speculated the actors may have had a rift during filming.

When Kevin was asked why he was absent from Fistful Family dinner parties for two years, he said these events were a “waste of time” as he wanted to spend more time with his wife and three sons instead. Besides COVID-19, Kevin said he was not a fan of crowds and wanted to choose his gatherings carefully due to lack of free time.  He said he would not be able to attend Kenneth’s wedding in Bali.

In contrast to Kevin’s social preferences, Grace often went out with her friends for the holidays. During Halloween, Grace and several friends dressed up in costumes and had a great time. She recently shared photos of her on a trip in South Africa with her friends. In her caption, Grace mentioned it has been a while since she went on vacation with friends, especially after becoming a mother of three.

Since Grace had free time to go on vacations while Kevin had “no time,” netizens believed the real reason for Kevin not wanting to attend Kenneth’s wedding was most likely Grace’s opposition. Many people left comments on Grace’s Instagram and said, “So you have time to go on vacation, but Kevin can’t go to Kenneth’s wedding?”

Appearing at an event, Grace responded to the controversy. She said Kevin was not upset over the recent news. Their friends know that he is a blunt person and Kenneth has already responded to the incident. As they have to take care of their children, Grace and Kevin may not be able to attend Kenneth’s wedding in Bali and will invite them to dinner afterward. Grace said Kenneth and Roxanne understand their situation.

  1. What? This is silly. He is his own man and the decision on whether or not to attend an event is on him.

    She can also go on vacation whenever she wants. She needs her “me” time too.

    1. It is silly. They don’t need to report how they spend their time or who they wish to set spend personal time with. The truth is probably that the friendships have faded with time but that is their own business.
