Lai Lok Yi Cannot Give Girlfriend a Luxurious Life

After meeting former Miss Hong Kong contestant, Nicole Lee (李潔瑩) three years ago, Lai Lok Yi (黎諾懿)  settled down. He even professed that he will marry Nicole after he completes his work obligations for the 500-episode popular sitcom, Come Home Love <愛·回家>.

Nicole comes from a rich background. Born to a millionaire father and mother, Nicole had participated in the 2007 Miss Hong Kong pageant but failed to be placed. She currently works as the general manager of her family’s beauty business, which has now spawned to 18 stores around Hong Kong. The Lee family’s assets are estimated to be worth $100 million HKD. Nicole moved out of her $40 million HKD and 3,395 square feet family home in Ho Man Tin to live with Lok Yi earlier.

Though tabloids praised Lok Yi for “snatching” a millionaire-dollar wife, Lok Yi refuses to rely on his girlfriend and vows to support her with his own money. Lok Yi’s sense of responsibility and diligence has earned the approval of Nicole’s parents.

It has been said that Nicole was willing to leave behind her sophisticated lifestyle to stay with Lok Yi. A tabloid magazine reported that the couple has been eyeing a village house in Sai Kung, and the pair were caught visiting the village two days ago. The went to Silverstrand Mart to meet up with an estate agent, who brought them to a five-acre three-story building at a Sai Kung neighborhood village. The couple plans to purchase the property on the first floor, the magazine reported.

Unfortunately, the neighborhood has a high crime rate, and recently its residents have been victims of theft and burglary. Would Nicole’s parents approve of Lok Yi’s purchase?

  1. I’m so happy for him.
    And it’s definitely good that he got his future in-laws’ approval (:

    1. Same here. I appreciate how he wants to support his rich girlfriend himself instead of trying to get publicity from her. Hats off to a young man with integrity.

  2. Well whatever makes them happy. It’s always about money. sigh

  3. Never been a fan of his until Come Home Love. He’s so natural as John Ma.

    Best wishes to him.

  4. Always been a fan of him so pretty happy he is doing well in both work and love. Keep up the good work!

  5. do celebrities get kickbacks from developers for appearing to be interested in up and coming areas of Hong KOng?

  6. He’s really improved a lot as John Ma in Come Home Love. It’s probably a combination of a funny, charismatic character plus the long filming time which allows him to more fully develop this character, but I finally see some star quality to him.

  7. Should have gone for the second floor flat. Less bugs, less chance of robbery, better view, less noise from above you, etc etc.
    Good on him for vowing to support her and not leech off her money, unlike what most of today’s youth are taught to do when they marry.
    I bet Raymond Lam is a bit jealous of him atm lol.

  8. Wow, he’s one lucky guy since she is not only pretty but rich as well. Great!!! hahaa…

  9. that guy has some mad game, scoring a hot girlfriend that is rich while looking like shrek. props to him,

    edit. after google searching the girl, ehhhh she aint that hot, less props

  10. The in law could buy could a property for them. If Lai does not feel comfortable taking it then he could rent from the in law. I’m sure the in law wouldn’t mind offering rent below the market price. A win-win situation for both of them.

  11. Personally, I think they should probably look for a safer place to live if it’s real serious.
    OooOooh im so happy for Lok Yi!
