Yesterday, while flying back to Hong Kong from an event at Shanghai, Niki Chow’s (周麗淇) photo suddenly got snapped by a strange passenger from a foreign nationality while fast asleep. This made Niki so startled that she went pale in the face and was even worried that the unsightly photo of her being sound asleep would be exposed through the web. Helpless, Niki could only rely on her colleague’s help to be like a “scanning detector” to search for that photo on the web.
Niki Chow and Hanjin Tan (陳奐仁) appeared at an event last night. Niki self-exposed that while en-route from Shanghai to Hong Kong, she met a strange passenger while on the flight, “As soon as I boarded the plane, the foreign nationality passenger who was sitting across me asked me in both English and Chinese whether I was Niki Chow and even asked me whether I played the shares market. Afterwhich, I fell soundly asleep but all of a sudden, I heard this clicking sound and woke up to find that he had bent down and was standing in front of me. It was really maddening and startling for me at that point in time.”
Airline Company Kept A Record of Incident
Niki expressed that she did not know the intention of the other party and was afraid that the unsightly photo of her sleeping soundly would be exposed. After that incident, Niki had no choice but to complain to the air stewardess and to rely on her colleague to keep a closer eye on the Internet to prevent the photo from spreading all over the web.
Niki explained, “The air stewardess said that she saw that man taking photos of me throughout the flight but because she saw us talking to each other earlier on, she assumed that we already knew each other and hence she did not stop him from doing so.” Niki expressed, “The airline company promised that they will keep a record of the details involved so that it will facilitate me, should I decide to lodge a police report in the future.”
Niki honestly said that she understands that there isn’t any law which prevents others from snapping photos in a public area however she felt that the other party was seriously lacking respect for her, “There was no chance that I could prevent it, unless I even bought the seat across or sit a private jet.”
Hanjin Tan Will Be Collaborating With Joyce Tang
In other news, to commemorate his 10 years into the industry, Hanjin will be releasing a brand new album this month, “Next February will mark my tenth year into the industry. The upcoming album’s song will emote about my joy, anger, sorrow and happiness (喜怒哀樂) and how they come together or alternate between one another.”
Hanjin will even be making his way into TVBNOW and taking on a new TVB drama. Hanjin revealed that he will be acting as a couple with Joyce Tang (滕麗名) and laughed that he was afraid he would be beaten up if there were any intimate scenes required in the drama. Hanjin’s co-stars for that drama would also include Kiki Sheung (商天娥) and Eddie Cheung (張兆輝).

Ah K: Understand where Niki Chow is coming from as although I’m obviously not a celebrity, I will feel as angry too if some stranger took photos of me drooling away happily, especially without my knowledge!
