Natalie Tong’s New Boyfriend is a Flirt?

The actress’ refusal to make the relationship public might be antagonizing her boyfriend.

Thirty-seven-year-old actress Natalie Tong (唐詩詠) has been hurt deeply by her past relationships. Perhaps due to her previous relationships breaking down after going public, Natalie has yet to confirm dating rumors with educational entrepreneur, Samuel Chan (陳思銘). In February, the two traveled to Europe, signifying a smooth relationship. But once returning to Hong Kong, they saw each other less.

Went to Europe Together

Dating for a year, it is understood that Natalie and Samuel have already met each others’ parents and family members. Last year, Natalie was also seen at a restaurant in Kwan Tung operated by Samuel’s sister.

According to an insider, “They went to France and Italy in January this year, but Natalie did not dare to put the photos up. Samuel only posted single shots of the trip. Two months later Natalie started uploading photos. Though the two are pretending to go at different timings, but anyone can tell! As he is in the business of opening education centers, and needs to close deals, publicity is beneficial and dating Natalie has helped a lot. But Natalie has not publicly acknowledged the (relationship); she wants both of them to have marriage as a common goal before taking it public.”

Samuel Spotted with Another Woman

With Natalie unwilling to go public with the relationship, Samuel has the chance to continue pretending he is single. With his business achievements and ideal qualities, he is a good catch.

With Natalie busy filming TVB drama Chinatown <唐人街>recently, Samuel is spotted driving his Tesla from his Tuen Men residence to South Horizons East, where he picked up an attractive woman with full lips who resembles Eliza Sam (岑麗香). They headed to his education center at Causeway Bay, and Samuel dropped her off later at her residence. The woman was spotted smoking along with Samuel and holding his mobile phone for him to speak, even though Samuel’s hands were free.

With him making a big detour to fetch her from her home and send her back, and the two’s intimate gestures, it is likely that the two are not simply friends.

Founder of Education Center

Thirty-two-year-old Samuel Chan is the founder and operating manager of a higher education consultation center in Hong Kong. Since nine years old, he went to study in England and scored eight distinctions in the GCSE examinations at a local secondary school, graduating later from the University of Warwick and the University of Nottingham. He is also the author of a book on pursuing higher education in England. Now that his education consultation business is well on track, his annual income is rumored to be over $10 million HKD, along with his $300 million family fortune, he is one of the most eligible bachelors in town.

The businessman has once revealed that he shares a long friendship with Wong Cho Lam (王祖藍), and was also spotted at the latter’s daughter’s recent 100-day-old bash held at Hong Kong Disneyland. Popular with his company’s female employees, Samuel exudes a down-to-earth aura and is fond of telling jokes. Dating a girl from a wealthy family background while studying at university in England, the two founded a business together after they returned to Hong Kong, but broke up over two years ago.

When approached at the television station, Natalie refused to comment about Samuel’s photos with the mysterious woman.

  1. Hmm….ever since the college admissions scandal that has been making big waves over here in the U.S., I can’t help but view people who claim to be “education consultants” as suspicious – especially those who make tons of money like this guy does (and like the mastermind behind that scandal did). Of course not saying this guy is a fraud since I don’t know him (and don’t really care to be honest), but just looking at it from the frame of reference of what’s been happening lately.

    Anyway….I feel for Natalie, as she seems to have bad luck when it comes to relationships. Hope she does end up finding Mr. Right some day!

    1. @llwy12 Off-topic, but I find it really hypocritical for people to be in an uproar about the college admissions’ scandal NOW. It’s always been the case that richer people had an upper hand in college admissions’ process – whether it’s in the form of hefty donations or legacy admissions or broad connections or even pure deceit. Even when I was a kid, I never felt like it was fair. But I suppose for every injustice, there has to be the right time & movement to remove those inequities. Casting couch/MeToo occurences, religious s3xual abuse scandals and now college admissions. It’s been a long time coming, but at least it’s here now.

      1. @coralie Completely agree with you! That was the exact reaction I had as well when the college admissions scandal first erupted. Having grown up here (in Southern California especially, with USC, UCLA, and many of our “top” universities implicated in the scandal), I remember my own experience having to go through the college admissions process like every other non-rich kid here and even back then (many moons ago), the process was already extremely biased toward the more privileged lot. Case in point — I was a nerd from a lower-middle class family who got straight A’s all through high school with a 4.8 GPA (our school went off 5.0 scale), was class valedictorian, slew of extra-curricular activities, high SAT scores, etc., yet I didn’t get into majority of the universities I had applied to (one university that shall remain nameless actually accepted me but when I found out it was because they needed to balance out their Asian student admissions due to affirmative action, I politely declined). It’s sad, but the admissions process here has never been based on merit and it never will be either — even after this scandal fades, nothing much is going to change because all the universities rely on the whole donation / legacy admission / athletic recruitment process in order to exist…if they had to get rid of that, they would all have to close their doors!

      2. @llwy12 Omg don’t get me started on the affirmative action piece. There are still a lot of Asians in the U.S. that are poor and don’t have access to educational resources that other races are afforded. Just because we’re more academically-driven, means we no longer deserve a fair chance just like those in the affirmative action group? There are so many Asian kids I know who are driven to study harder and inclined to succeed BECAUSE of their background. We work hard to get where we want/need to be because we don’t want to be stuck in poverty and because of that effort, we get punished? That doesn’t make sense to me at all.

        Meanwhile, the rich keeps finding loopholes to get their dearest children into top Ivy Leagues even though they already have tons of advantages & resources at their disposal. Don’t understand a subject? Hire a tutor. Don’t understand geography? Travel worldwide. Need a job? Connections up the wazoo. And yet they still try to cheat. I console myself that it’s a trade-off. In exchange for getting their kids into said school, they donate money to benefit those who are less privileged. But this isn’t new! This is still not fair. And the rich cheating isn’t novel at all. The hypocrisy pisses me off.

        Sigh. But it’s still better late than never that we’re scrutinizing these loopholes. Maybe someday it’ll be regulated better.

      3. @coralie I totally hear ya! You know what pisses me off the most about this whole thing though? The rich parents buying their kids’ way into the school is one thing, but when those same kids arrogantly flaunt how they are just at that school to party and drink and don’t intend on putting in any effort academically whatsoever (reference the comments made by Lori Loughlin’s daughter Olivia Jade), totally makes my blood boil! I had to work my butt off with a full-time job to scrap together enough money to pay my own way through college while still keeping up my grades academically so I would continue to qualify for a scholarship that I had that was based on merit (had to take out student loan too but thankfully between the job and the scholarship, only had to take out minimal amount so I wouldn’t have to spend the rest of my life paying it off)….so when I hear these rich kids who already are getting a free ride through college (and taking a spot away from someone less privileged and more deserving in the process) bragging about taking what they got for granted, makes me pissed as hell! But yea, better late than never with the reforms I guess…still doesn’t make it less frustrating though!

      4. @llwy12 See, I can somewhat pity Olivia Jade because she probably had no say over her parent’s decision. Her parents wanted her to go to college. She doesn’t understand her ticket to college is a zero-sum game: she got the chance to go to that college, while another student lost the opportunity. Even still, it’s not like she wanted that chance; it was pushed on her. And to make matters worse, she felt she earned a spot at that university since she didn’t know her mom pulled strings. So now not only is she entitled to a position in USC because she thinks she earned it, but she is also forced to be there. I can see her resentment and subsequent choices on how she decides to spend time in college.
