Lai Lok Yi Refuses to Rely on Rich Girlfriend
Like his character John Ma in the popular sitcom Come Home Love <愛·回家>, Chris Lai Lok Yi (黎諾懿) is a filial son who is devoted to his loved ones and works hard to achieve career success. After his father passed away from cancer, Lok Yi and his two brothers were raised single-handedly by their mother who kept the family afloat by working as a janitor. Growing up in a deprived environment taught Lok Yi the importance of financial security and molded him into a responsible adult. Despite having a millionaire girlfriend, Lok Yi vows to provide for her with his own money and promises to give her a comfortable life.
Lok Yi and girlfriend Nicole Lee (李潔瑩) publicly admitted to their relationship last year. Nicole, a 2007 Miss Hong Kong pageant contestant, is set to inherit her family’s beauty business worth $500 million HKD. Some speculated that Lok Yi had eyes on Nicole’s multi-millionaire fortune, and accused him of living off of his girlfriend. Lok Yi ignored the criticisms and the two showed off their rock-solid relationship, making frequent public appearances together.
Recently, Come Home Love was extended to 500 episodes, guaranteeing work and a steady stream of income for 32-year-old Lok Yi. He announced that he plans to marry Nicole after filming ends and is working hard to save up for the wedding. Even though their future together is guaranteed, Lok Yi continues to treat Nicole with utmost respect and kindness, earning praises from Nicole and acceptance from her parents.
Earlier this year, Lok Yi brought Nicole home to meet his family and spent time together with his young nephew, hoping to win Nicole over with his love for children. On Mother’s Day, Lok Yi paid a visit to Nicole’s parents and personally cooked a meal for them, winning points from his future in-laws.
Last week, Nicole attended an event organized by Wai Yin Association, the charity organization established and managed by former Miss Hong Kong pageant contestants. When asked to evaluate Lok Yi, Nicole said sweetly that he is worth 99 points. Reporters also asked if Nicole would financially assist Lok Yi in purchasing a new home, Nicole stated, “I won’t have to because he is a really smart guy. He also likes to be manly and hates relying on others!”
