Lai Lok Yi: “Tavia Yeung And I Are Not Lovers Yet”
Hong Kong tabloids claimed that Tavia Yeung (楊怡)and Lai Lok Yi (黎諾懿) turned from friends to lovers. Allegedly, Lai Lok Yi frequently had dinner at Tavia’s house and knew her mother very well. Tabloids claimed that Lok Yi possessed a resident card at Tavia’s apartment building and was free to come and go as he pleased. In addition, he and Tavia shared the same parking space.
While filming ATF Counter Terrorism Unit < ATF反恐>, reporters asked Lai Lok Yi about his romantic rumors with Tavia. Lok Yi noted that he knew Tavia’s family very well and often had dinner with them. “I am only good friends with Tavia. I often have dinner at her house. I know her mother very well. It is possible for a man and woman to [have friendship] other than a dating relationship!”
Regarding claims that Lai Lok Yi was eating breakfast at Tavia’s house, he said, “Are there photos? That’s not the truth. I did eat dinner there. I do not possess a resident card. Tavia asked someone to open the door for me.” Regarding the use of Tavia’s parking space, Lok Yi explained that Tavia’s car broke down and he temporarily borrowed the space.
Asked whether there was any room for additional development with Tavia, Lok Yi said, “It difficult to answer. However, work will come first. Also, destiny is not here yet.” He stressed that he was currently not dating Tavia, but possessed very good feelings towards her. Since the future was unpredictable, he did not eliminate the possibility that they may become lovers in the future.
Regarding allegations that she was paying for Lok Yi’s living expenses, Tavia said, “What the heck are they saying that I’m paying for his living expenses? How do I have the qualifications? We are good friends and our relationship is not as you think.” Asked whether there was possibility to develop further with Lok Yi, Tavia said, “We’ll deal with things in the future later. I’ll tell you then!”

Jayne: Lai Lok Yi did not deny frequenting Tavia’s home. He said he has good feelings towards her and did not eliminate possibility that they may develop further. Sounds like he is dating her!
Lok Yi’s answer seems to leave a lot more room for imagination instead of Tavia’s earlier answer that she had no “electrical connection” with Lok Yi. If he has good feelings about her, eats at her home frequently, spends time with her mother as a good “son-in-law,” sounds like they are dating!
