Raymond Cho Celebrates 50th Birthday
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.
