Known as the most highly educated Miss Hong Kong winner, Louisa Mak (麥明詩) downgraded her contract with TVB from a full-time artiste to a per-series contract. Capitalizing on her law degree, she now works as a business consultant with McKinsey & Company. Louisa’s everyday work schedule is now drastically different, and her income has been reduced significantly.
In the 500th episode of Young and Restless <#後生仔傾吓偈>, Louisa made an appearance through a video chat session. Although her work base is in Hong Kong, she often has to fly to different locations for her consulting work. Currently working on a consulting project in Taiwan, Louisa said that her new job allows her to have weekends off and time to socialize with friends. While she has a pursuer, their relationship hasn’t advanced because she is working in Taiwan.
Asked when she will be returning to treat the Young and Restless cast for dinner, Louisa said, “I need to be honest, my income has really dropped. I now realize what it means to work based on your interests and passions. I finally understand the hardships that workers go through, as I have to wake up at 7 a.m. every day to go to work. Although we had to wake up early sometimes for filming, but now I have to work from morning until night.” Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Louisa has been working remotely inside her hotel.
Good friend, Crystal Fung (馮盈盈), teased Louisa and asked when she will come back to work at TVB, perhaps in a management position at the station. Louisa laughed good-naturedly, “Maybe there will be a possibility.”
