Raymond Cho (曹永廉) turned 50 years old on October 16. The TVB star originally wanted to only invite a few friends for a private dinner, but Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎) and Timmy Hung (洪天明) insisted to make the party a night to remember. Kevin and Timmy sent out invites to over 30 celebrity friends and close TVB staff to attend Raymond’s birthday banquet, which was held at a hot pot restaurant in Cheung Sha Wan.

Other celebrity friends who attended the party included Roger Kwok (郭晉安), Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼), Raymond Wong (黃浩然), Ben Wong (黃賢智),Evergreen Mak (麥長青), Stefan Wong (黃長興) and his wife Peggy, Derek Kok (郭政鴻), and Jazz Lam (林子善). Stefan brought liquor as a gift for Raymond, while Roger revealed that he would be giving Raymond a new shirt, which represents luck in food and clothing.

Kevin and Jazz arrived together. Expressing that he was the one who planned the dinner, Kevin said, “It’s his 50th birthday! We have to make it huge!” What about Raymond’s gift? “I’m going to give him a big red envelope! It is practical and represents good luck!”

Charmaine arrived with her natural, no make-up face. Asked if she has prepared a gift for Raymond, she smiled and patted her bag. Although Charmaine and Kevin were rumored to have broken up in 2009, they remained as good friends and had a good time together chatting last night. As both are currently single, their friends hope that Charmaine and Kevin can re-ignite their romance.

Raymond said his birthday wish is to stay healthy. He joked that although he has the youthful face of a boy, his body functions like a 50-year-old. “I have already celebrated [my birthday] with my family. My kids gave me a birthday cake and a birthday card.”

He expressed that he expects himself to get a little tipsy at his hot pot banquet, but added that he cannot get too drunk as he has to pick up his children from school the next day.

    Raymond is 50? Wow, he looks like he’s in his mid-30s. Also, he seem like a well-liked person, a lot of his colleagues from TVB showed up to celebrate with him.

    I’m also hoping that Charmaine and Kevin would get together again. They really make a cute couple.

    Raymond Cho looks like he is in his mid 30s. Good to see Raymond Wong again, he looks good too. Kevin also looks great for his age. Wonder what elixir of youth these celebrities take to preserve their looks.

    Nice to see their close friendships and hanging out. Who said there’s no true friendships in the entertainment industry? LOL

    Wow, they must have had a very lovely evening together, close friends who care for one another and who perhaps rarely have this kind of opportunity to have a get together party. Looks like Kevin has proved to be a thoughtful and generous friend seeing what he did for Raymond, a very old friend. He also invited Charmaine as one of the guests. It perhaps shows that all hope for them to be together again is not lost!

    On Johnson Lee’s prank show, it pranked Raymond Cho pretending that one of his friends needed money but could not tell him reason why.. Raymond C willingly wanted to help had agreed to it. Shows what kind of guy he is and it isn’t surprising he has a large number of friends.

    Good people have good karma.

    Wow… Could not believe he is 50… I thought he was in his early or mid 30s only. Watched some of the drama he is in, and he looked so energetic and much younger than his actual age!

      Yeah Power looks really worn out and older with that haircut.
      Hope that means he’s working on a new series and not what he looks like normally.
      Wish TVB would give him a starring role soon. He deserves it.

    Never would have believed he’s 50. He takes good care of himself!
    He also must be one of the most liked TVB artists among his peers. Can’t remember the last time so many of the top ones got together for someone’s Bday.
    Wish him many more happy years.

    I thought Roger looks younger than his age, now Raymond Cho looks even much younger for his age. Raymond Cho must have good genes and/or he knows how to take good care of himself.

    Roger, Raymond Cho, and Sunny or Frankie are good friends and hang out together with their family. I wonder did Sunny and/or Frankie show up at Raymond Cho’s birthday party?

    Were Raymond Cho and Kevin in the same serie before?

    Happy Birthday Raymond Cho!

    The plot sounds interesting.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Sorghum_%28novel%29

    I wonder how this series will do. It seems that nowadays, the popular dramas are idol dramas, love drama and palace drama.

    ” As both are currently single, their friends hope that Charmaine and Kevin can re-ignite their romance.”

    I hope so too. 🙂

    Saw Mok Kar Yiu in the photos. He used to film for ATV and TVB, but, didn’t see him onscreen anymore. What is he doing now?
