Raymond Lam and Karena Ng Return from Milan Trip

Raymond Lam (林峯) and girlfriend, Karena Ng (吳千語), have been on an extended “honeyoon”, taking 3 vacations in one month! The added privacy allowed the couple’s relationship to grow by leaps and bounds, as signified by a “commitment” ring found on Karena’s finger.

After Lunar New Year, Raymond cleared his work calendar, even turning down some film offers and promotional events, to spend time with Karena. After Tokyo and Okinawa, the couple recently traveled to Milan, Italy to escape the intrusive Hong Kong paparazzi and soak in the international sights.

On the morning of February 28, Raymond and Karena arrived at the Hong Kong International Airport after their Milan trip. The couple appeared at the arrival hall separately. Raymond was seen pushing 3 large suitcases. He smiled at the press, but declined to accept interviews. “I’m on vacation now; there’s no need to give you a daily schedule of activities!” Raymond said before he stepped away.

Ten minutes later, Karena emerged. Karena was asked if she and Raymond had slept in separate rooms in Milan. Although she refused to respond, it was observed that Karena wore a ring on her finger; was it a token of Raymond’s love commitment?

Karena Refuses to Comment on Sleeping Arrangements

At an evening film celebratory event, Karena was once again asked about her sleeping arrangements while traveling in Milan. “Let’s not talk about such private matters,” Karena said and clarified that the ring she was wearing was purchased by herself.

Karena further explained why she and Raymond went on multiple trips. “We went on 3 trips within one month because there were work assignments interspersed throughout. The trips earlier were too short. I had filmed a drama for 3 months and wished to take a long vacation. There were friends accompanying us.”

Spending an extended period of time together, Raymond and Karena’s relationship only improved. “He’s very attentive. I understood a lot more about him after the trip. He normally has a habit of being late, so I reminded him.”

Karena also said that she will not become pregnant before marriage, a milestone in life which requires careful planning.

Since Raymond has been on vacation, he has been unable to join the cast of Saving General Yang <忠烈楊家將> in its Taiwan promotional tour this week. Producer Raymond Wong (黃百鳴), who had signed Karena under his management company, did not seem to mind the couple taking a long break, as long as they knew when to prioritize work, while dating in their leisure time.

Following Love is…Pyjamas <男人如衣服>, in which they met and fell in love, Raymond and Karena will once again appear together in new horror film Baby Blues 3D <詭眼3D>, which is scheduled to open summer 2013.

    This morning, I commented that Raymond Lam and Karena Ng must be vacationing at an international location where few Asians are, since they have not been spotted on dates in the last few days.

    Then I come across today’s news which revealed that my guess was indeed correct. They chose Milan likely because of the low Asian population, as opposed to Japan where Hong Kongers frequently vacation there.

    Italy is very romantic…. There should still be several days before Raymond and Karena start working again in mid-March.

    Where do you think they will vacation next? They’ve gone north already, maybe a private resort in Thailand would add a nice mix.

      Raymond sure doesn’t skimp on the costs when going on the date, which involves airplane tickets and world class destinations. 🙂

      No wonder Raymond was not at the Yang’s promotional event. I had a feeling that he was still on vacation. I guess he has reached a point in his life that he is starting to prioritize his love life and starting a family rather than just his showbiz career since he will eventually leave…. Also, I think he is tired of working non stop which has affected his health too. He deserves a long break…

      Michaelscotfield,
      Raymond seems to be head-over-heels in love. Or rather he’s reached the point in his career where he is tired of working relentlessly over the years and wishes to simply enjoy some snuggling and being in love.

      When you’re Raymond Lam, work offers will always be there.

        Raymond might not have easy access to his dad’s wealth, also his brother and his sister factors in. Plus there is less freedom if he uses his father’s money (doubt papa will approve overzealous mindless spending on his credit.) Its better if he works, then daddy wont have a say if he is paying for his gf’s material expenses or not.

        Raymond does not have access to his dad’s wealth? You’re funny. He is the eldest child/son of a Chinese family. That money he definintely has access to. Not to mention, the father may not lend him all the cash he wants, but I guarantee you that he will give Raymond assets. That alone is enough.

    They’re definitely cherishing every free moment to be with each other and I’m sure their love has grown even stronger after these vacations. Hope she is the one for him and is not riding on his wealth and fame.

    • michaelscotfield replied:

      Well, you never know if she is riding on his wealth and fame since i don’t watch asian movies, only tv series so i don’t really know who she is. She is young, not as popular so who knows for sure if she is riding on his wealth. But then we shouldn’t be surprised if she is. I mean, look at some of the celebs who married rich and most of them are old and ugly too. At least Raymond Lam is not ugly n he is older compares to her but he is certainly not in the OLD OLD stage yet so what’s not to like at this point in her life….

    I also guessed that Raymond probably were on vacation with Karena since he was absent in the promotion for Saving General Yang in Taiwan.

    That is a lot of vacation in one month, but Raymond can afford it. The above picture is the best picture that I’ve seen for Karena.

    Of course they are going to grow together. Just think about it…if i put you and a girl/guy together in a very relaxed, care-free. and romantic environment, chances are you are going to develop a romantic interest towards one another. In my opinion though let’s wait and see if this girl can ride out some of the waves and hard times that the relationship will bring. Now that’s the true love test.

    • ehh replied:

      I doubt she can ride the hard times with him. Or else she wouldn’t cut loose her ex for bigger fish.

      At this rate, Raymond will spend his fortune into the ground on these high profiled “dates”. Already in one month, they are taking many consecutive frivolous vacations. Like the Tokyo trip didn’t satisfy and wasn’t decadent enough. I now believe he probably is foolishly forking over for her and her parent’s luxury pads. To be honest, if a girl really liked you, she wouldn’t mind being at home watching a movie with you and not always out and about in a million luxury places. Over indulgence will drive him fast to bankruptcy and a bad rep if he is skipping promos and work related commitments. At least do your part before having personal time. Most actors sign on to do all the promotional activities for their films as part of their agreement.

      I doubt he will have any mind to return to work nor will he be focused. Love is a crazy thing. He’ll probably turn into a Mavis Pan himself giving all for love and end up with nothing.

        Raymond is probably a millionaire himself. His father is a billionaire. So, put that together, no matter how many expensive dates hes willing to give his girlfriend, it’s similar to throwing a couple of pennies.

        LOL. You can’t put low socioeconomic status people with the high socioeconomic status. Their mentalities are completely separate.

        As for his work, who are you to say what he should do? Most people hate this guy because he is rich and popular. Now, we got the ‘he’s so dumb for spending money like that’. Get a grip girl, boy, it, he is rich. What don’t you understand? He’s not the kind of rich you see in the states or Canada where a couple 100 grand is considered ‘rich’. He’s in the millionaire/billionaire category. Royalty. Duh.

        Funny that you consider watching a movie a low socioeconomic activity, what bg did Karena’s family start out with? Low to middle class. Also when did a leisure activity like that start to be confined to class, don’t be a sneering idiot esp if you are not rich yourself, you talk so boastfully about your idol and wonder why he and his fans are disliked all over. Don’t talk about money as if you know anything. Their net worth is definitely not a billion, it is a gross exageration on your part to make sneering comments from.

        Millionaires can go bankrupt despite their fortune because they were over decadent and made bad decisions, its amusing that you think he doesn’t need to care since he has “alot”. There is no logic in what you say. As if being rich means they don’t have to manage their money. Financial advisors will tell you that being rich IS about managing your money. That is advice that is given in the real world.

        I’m the sneering idiot? You’re the one who spoke as if you knew his financial background in depth. Let me repeat what you said “Raymond will spend his fortune into the ground on these high profiled ‘dates’…” His fortune? That just tells me you know the guy is rich but you don’t know to what extent. Well if you hate on the guy enough, you’ll know the revenues he’s been making off of his concerts, his movie incomes etc etc. It is in the millions put together. His father IS ON FORBES. PLEASE GO LOOK AT IT YOURSELF. He is a multi-billionaire. LOL. So therefore your opinion on his wealth is invalid. You’re basically saying ‘he’s gonna go broke on these less than half a million dollar vacation’. Whos the idiot? Me? Nah. You. Yup.

        Don’t speak of the real world, like you’re actually in it. Physically maybe, mentally you’re stuck in some wonderland. It shows in your premature judgmental skills. Failure to understand other people’s opinions is what causes people to fail in their lives.

        Of course millionaires can go bankrupt but you have once again failed to understand that GOING ON VACATIONS DOES NOT MAKE A MILLIONAIRE BANKRUPT. To add, his family is rich. Bankrupt how? Unless the family’s real estate monopoly crumbles. Highly doubt it.

        Its just normal everyday advice anyone would give your idol, I’m not sure why you are jumping up and down about it. HK dollars < US dollars. HK billionaire doesn't not equate to US billionaire. Why don't you post the article since you love bragging about him. Why should I have to look for it when I'm not his superfan?

        When I suggested he doesn't need to spend alot of money to woo her, someone replied and sneered "You can’t put low socioeconomic status people with the high socioeconomic status. Their mentalities are completely separate." Implying poor ppl like myself and others would enjoy poor leisure activities while rich ppl like your idol are of high socioeconomic status shouldn't be subject to "low socioeconomic" activities.

        You make equally if not more personally offensive comments that are off topic, at least I am talking about the idols, not following one poster each time. Do yourself a favor and stop the stalker act.

        1) I never clarified in what currency when I said billionaire.

        2) I never pinpointed you as low socioeconomic status, but you just came out and admit it yourself?

        I’m going to say one last thing to you. Millionaires who went bankrupt are generally in the pool of low/middle socioeconomic statuses shot up to high due to external factors i.e. winning the lottery, stock market and the sorts. People who were born in a well established type of business and are extremely wealthy , do not go bankrupt easily. They might in the future because of how the market develops or doesn’t develop, but I’m telling you, RARELY, is it because of their awful financial decisions. Unless its gambling ALL their assets away which I highly doubt a couple hundred million dollar setting family would do. It is also true that the rich, who are not that rich, as in those who are a couple of million dollars in all assets, who does the gambling. Why? Because in terms of the even more wealthy, they are seen as scrubs.

        I thought we came to the conclusion, we part ways. Well, good day now.

    I feel it’s kinda funny that ppl has the tendency to think that these trips can make a big hole on his budget. Come on, it only took him 1 eps of series for the whole 3 trips, in 20 days, with everything from flight, hotel, expenses, etc. I assume that last year he earned at least 20 mil HKD (after reduce tax, payment to Txb, payment to manager, other expenses), so 500k is only 1/40 of the saving for last year. Too cheap for him to think much. Imagine that you only have to spend the money earned from few working days to have 20 days vacation, is it that much or it can create any trouble to your saving? Probably no. He worked with only max 3 days vacations in years, so with that price for 20 days vacation, no need to think a second. Too worthy.
