Hong Kong Artistes Raise Funds Through TVB Charity Show
Leon Lai, Andy Lau and others join in the televised program.
Held on June 6, Community Chest Charity Show <萬眾同心公益金> featured TVB artistes and Heavenly Kings Leon Lai (黎明) and Andy Lau (劉德華) participating in fundraising efforts to encourage Hong Kongers and aid the needy members of society amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Artistes Took Part Through Pre-recorded Singing
Celebrities including Andy Lau, Leon Lai, Paula Tsui (徐小鳳), and Joey Yung (容祖兒) pre-recorded songs for the program. Describing how Hong Kong as a city had weathered many storms, Paula called on Hong Kongers to support one another and show their perseverance in the face of challenges.
As an honorary member of the Community Chest, Leon also appeared at the event for the souvenir presentation ceremony and personally packed COVID-19 care packages for the needy.
His appearance roused the excitement of several actresses on set including Snow Suen (孫慧雪), Virginia Lau (劉溫馨) and Eunice Chan (陳詩欣). Eunice even tried many camera angles on her phone before successfully capturing a far-off “selfie” with Leon, which caused the latter to throw an odd glance in her direction.
Crystal Denied Returning Home Drunk
Appearing as special guests at the event were TVB artistes Owen Cheung (張振朗) and Sisley Choi (蔡思貝). Owen, who mistakenly thought Andy would show up in person, especially dressed up for the event but was disappointed to know he would not have a chance to see his idol. As for Sisley, she revealed that she would most look forward to work with Stephen Chow (周星馳) and Maggie Cheung (張曼玉).
Sharing that she had caught the last episode of The Exorcist’s 2nd Meter <降魔的2.0> while having dinner with her family, Sisley was touched to tears by the climactic scene of Kenneth Ma’s (馬國明) character Siu Ma shooting Hubert Wu’s (胡鴻鈞) character, praising Kenneth for expressing his emotions perfectly. When asked if she had screamed in opposition when rumored boyfriend Hubert was “shot”, Sisley cheekily replied, “Doesn’t matter if he is killed!”
Crystal Fung (馮盈盈) also did a live culinary demo on the charity show’s online page, with host Sammy Leung (森美) and Nancy Sit (薛家燕) complimenting her dish for tasting just as good as it looks. As for recent reports which mentioned she went home drunk after a party, Crystal denied the news and clarified she was merely feeling unwell and had required the security guard’s help. “I admit I was a bad example–my extreme fasting methods made me enervated and unwell.” Her parents were worried and advised her to move back home after the news reports surfaced, but Crystal rejected the suggestion as she wanted to learn to be independent and moreover her apartment lease period was not yet up.
