Shirley Yeung’s Newfound Lover Hints Their Relationship Across Weibo

Dating fellow TVB colleague, Gregory Lee (李泳豪), for 9 years, past Miss Hong Kong winner, Shirley Yeung (楊思琦), abruptly announced to the media that she broke up with Gregory for a few months. This was a great contrast from her usual low-profile mannerism of handling romance and personal matters. The Hong Kong media revealed that Shirley has been discretely dating Beijing tycoon, Andy Ng, and possibly two months pregnant. Since “paper cannot cover fire” [her alleged baby bump would gradually show someday], Shirley reportedly used this tactic of disclosing the break-up news before others can do so.

To-date, Shirley refused to state the cause of the break-up whereas pitiful Gregory, who has been made a “green hat cuckold,”  has been trying his best to salvage this relationship which has gone awry, while defending and protecting speculations against Shirley. Netizens in online forums sarcastically labeled Shirley as a classic model for “The Best Breakup Ever.”

Andy, the suspected  new lover of Shirley, tweeted his messages of love across popular Chinese microblogging site, Weibo, very early on. Andy even went as far as to mention that Shirley has a “much bigger mission” at stake, seemingly hinting that Shirley may be pregnant with “a bun in the oven.”

Heart-broken Gregory Lee Confessed that He’s Not Famous

Ever since Shirley Yeung ruthlessly dumped Gregory Lee, he buried himself in car racing to numb his heartbreak and  resolved to work harder. Last weekend, Gregory asked two of his good friends along to test-drive cars, in preparation for the upcoming car racing/drifting competition in August. After test-driving the cars earlier, Gregory’s friends took him pancake snacking. Throughout the entire journey, he was seen furrowing his eyebrows and in deep thought.

In the interview, Gregory appeared troubled. When mentioned about his 9 years relationship with Shirley, he heaved a sigh and seemed protective of Shirley, “Whatever happens, I will give her my blessings. She is also suffering under the intense scrutiny of the media.” (But will it be awkward if you meet her again?) Gregory said, “No, we are still friends.”

Earlier, Gregory and Shirley’s relationship had progressed to the stage where wedding plans were in discussion.  Suddenly, the relationship was pronounced “dead” by one party. Gregory had a hard time absorbing and accepting it, professing that he could not sleep or have the appetite to eat. “Just one month ago, there were talks of marrying, choosing an auspicious date, and plans of holding our wedding abroad. Now, there is no need for all these procedures anymore.”

Speaking of his agony, Gregory clenched his fist and withheld his tears, he professed that he did not know suspected third party, Andy. The dedicated lovelorn Gregory was still hung up on hopes of a reconciliation with Shirley, “To tell the truth, I haven’t been able to put down my feelings to-date. Regarding future matters, I would leave them to God to arrange.”

The abrupt ending of a 9-year romance within one night is of course, hard to bear hence friends of Gregory were afraid that he might do something rash and thus has been taking turns to accompany him and lend a listening ear. Gregory said, “Everyone was afraid that I would think too much so they have been accompanying me, stuffing my schedule until it was full, even to the extent of confiscating my car keys, refusing to let me drive for fear of any accidents. Sometimes when I reach home late, my family would call me.” (Your parents were very agitated?) Gregory said, “I did ask them to calm down.”

Friends consoled 31-year-old Gregory that he still has a long future in front of him and hoped he would recover in due time. Gregory said, “I will definitely work harder! Actually, I have been actively working hard in the past too but people only saw the fruit of the labor and not the hard work involved. My lack of fame has caused a lot of matters. The pressure had always been there but I do not wish to be weighed down by others’ perception of who I am anymore.”

The Winner, Andy, Shows Off His Victory on Weibo

Gregory’s part-time occupation as a racing coach raked in a monthly earning of $5,000 (HKD). Due to additional income from teaching horseback riding and acting in TVB roles, his total monthly salary was $30,000 (HKD). Compared to a normal worker, this salary was without a doubt, considered optimistic. However, to support a wife, Gregory would really have to work a little harder.

In his thirties, Andy was a rich tycoon in mainland in comparison. Allegedly, Andy was Shirley’s secondary school mate, who had studied in Beijing in the past. In 2008, Shirley attended the Beijing Olympics and bumped into Andy again. Andy immediately asked Shirley for her phone number and started his pursuit.

An insider disclosed, “Andy knew that Shirley already had a boyfriend but he still continued to woo her. His methods were brilliant. He specialized in adopting one’s likes. Furthermore, he knew how to use the mother-in-law tactic, often fawning over Shirley’s mother with gifts.  He was even smart enough to ‘follow/lock in’ on Gregory in Weibo, grasping the every action of his rival in love. In the beginning, Shirley only considered him as a friend but gradually began to overstep the boundary.”

In fact, in January 2011, Andy and Shirley have been exchanging love messages across Weibo. Although Andy has been leaving messages on Weibo, assuming an identity as Shirley’s fan, there were minor hints here and there, showing that there was more that meets the eye in their relationship.

On the day that Shirley announced her break-up with Gregory in a high-profile manner, Andy wrote on his Weibo page, “This has been a remarkably memorable month. Eleven years of feelings finally bore fruit; I will do my very best to protect her and love her. I believe that I can give her happiness. This promise will be forever.”

In the midst of flying rumors, Shirley’s newfound lover, Andy, asked her not to eat instant noodles, for fear that it will spoil her health. In a Weibo message, Andy wrote, “You still have a very important mission at stake!” Perhaps there was “no smoke without fire” [Chinese proverb that there must be some truth to these rumors].

Shirley and Andy’s Exchange of Love Across Weibo

Signs of Shirley’s new lover, Andy, (Andy’s Weibo link: http://weibo.cn/dpool/ttt/home.php?uid=1928742860&d=1928742860), disguising himself behind the Weibo ID of @cthk118, showing warmth and concerns of Shirley on her Weibo page, indicating that something was in the air.

June 2, 2011:

Sexy Shirley uploaded a self-photo of her low-cut gown, thereby showing off her “career line” (aka cleavage). Andy, @cthk118,  replied, “The clothes that I detest the most!” indicating signs of jealousy.

June 10 2011:

Shirley praised her mother’s stir-fried oysters with ginger and spring onion as superb. Andy, @cthk118, replied, “Waited for so long but have not had the chance to eat. Will definitely try it on my next trip down to Hong Kong! Not only must I try, I should learn to cook it!” The message proved that he must be someone with close relations to the Yeung family in order to have Shirley’s mother whipping up dishes for him.

June 13, 2011:

Shirley, who was banned from eating instant noodles, discovered a cute “bear shaped food” at a supermarket in the evening. Andy, @cthk118, replied, “Buy it home. Not a bad snack option, I want to try that too!”

June 13, 2011:

At midnight, Shirley ate instant noodles and sausages for supper. Andy, @cthk118, replied, “Buy some stuff to store in the fridge, those type that are microwavable and can be eaten once heated. Last time it’s because you have no choice but to eat cup noodles. Now there is your mom to cook for you! Cup noodles have been found to contain cancer-causing plastic additives; it will affect one’s health! You still have a very important mission! Bear in mind!”

    Wow, this is truly like what we see in the series we watch! If this is true, Andy is probably the main perpetrator in this whole thing because he pursued Shirley even when he knew she has a stable boyfriend. I have a feeling when he heard signs of wedding bells ringing for Shirley, he probably tried even harder to get her to change her mind and stop her from marrying Gregory in his hard pursuit and even got her pregnant so that she can’t turn back. If Shirley was cheating on Gregory for a year, she was probably feeling 15/16, not knowing who to choose. That’s why she was still living with Gregory and celebrated his birthday with him. I believe that she did plan on marrying him but changed her mind because Andy successfully won her heart, her mom’s heart, and got her pregnant.
    I’m pretty sure that this rumor is true, if not Shirley would have come out to clarify that he is not the third party and that she is not pregnant. These are serious allegations for people to not come out and clarify especially if it also affects someone else as well. So the fact that she is neither admitting nor denying pretty much means that it’s true. How hard is it to deny anyway?

    “In his thirties, Andy was a rich tycoon in mainland in comparison.”

    It’s really interesting to see how Andy is getting richer and richer in each subsequent article.

    When the breakup news first came up, Andy was only said to come from a family who does business. It give off the impression that he’s moderately well off, but, not mega rich . In a subsequent article, Andy became a ‘rich second generation’. Now, he has elevated to tycoon level.

        I know the difficulties of a translator since I used to do them as well, so don’t feel bad Ah K. I don’t think that is really a mis-translation since “fu” does mean rich/wealthy… Hm… I can’t really think of a better term to translate “fu shang” besides tycoon, therefore, I don’t think using the term “tycoon” is completely wrong… We can easily know the meaning of something in Chinese but it is really hard to find the best term to translate in English.

    Despite that all Shirley has done, I still don’t hate or dislike her in any way. Some people dislike her for being irresponsible in her break up with Gregory, which is true. Some are saying that her career is officially over.

    I don’t know, and although Shirley has never been a great actress, I did enjoy her performance in The Brink of Law. I won’t miss watching her onscreen if she decides to retire from acting, but even after this incident, I won’t mind watching her. Her acting is different from her real life personality, so are HK citizens and viewers so judging when it comes to accepting this?

    Betrayal is outright wrong, but I still don’t blame Shirley entirely for this. I sympathize with Gregory like most people, but I’m beginning to detest this Andy who is bragging on a public platform for breaking up a couple and snatching someone else’s gf. There really isn’t anything to be proud of and his actions are viewed as immature and stupid. It would be much appreciated if he would just text her instead of flirting on Weibo.

    Also, sometimes Weibo just gives the invasive HK paparazzi more opportunities and ways to dig out info about these celebrities. Even though Weibo is a good way for fans to learn more and interact with their idols, it’s also gives the media an added edge and advantage. I think it was Michelle Reis’s husband who told her not to update her Weibo because it’s equivalent to giving the media news to write about.

      I am on the same wavelength w/ you on this matter. I think Shirley made some bad decisions but I don’t dislike her in anyway. I also wouldn’t mind watching any of her dramas in the future.

      Sometimes, life choices are not in black or white, but shades of gray. I don’t know Shirley’s reasoning behind her choice, but I’m sure it was well-thought out and fits the life that she wants for herself and her mother.

      I don’t dislike Shirley, or like her, or hate her. But I feel what she did or rather the way she did it is wrong therefore the negative comments. I think her career is definitely gone now, and HK public can forgive a lot of things, but to cheat on someone and get pregnant as a result, is not something they can forgive easily. Of course morals should be in the equation but in this scenario, when these 2 have so carelessly broken a man’s heart and then have the new guy brag about it, I find them so despicable that I am glad for all these negative remarks. At least we have out priorities straight; quite simply the one who cheats and brags about that is the villain.

        Some guys are like that and they come off as a jerk or chauvinist. Personally, I can never imagine being happy with someone whose a controller as I desire freedom too much. It’s best when there is a some balance in a relationship where neither party is dominating. I don’t want a pushover, but a jerk won’t do either.

        Greg and Andy seems to be very different in personality and are on opposite sides of the spectrum. Greg, very soft-spoken, low-profile, and yielding, Andy, very controlling, high-profile, and loves bragging.

      Some women liked to be told. That is the ugly truth. Maybe Gregory is the type who lets her decide, maybe he is indecisive, so now she wants someone who is decisive. Joke is some time later she will wish he lets her decide.

    Compared to a normal worker, this salary was without a doubt, considered optimistic. However, to support a wife, Gregory would really have to work a little harder. —————– Here in USA, Western people no need anyone to support. Men and women here in USA both go to work to support the family together. And here in USA, sometimes even the wife make money than the husband. Ask your white Americans neighbors, I sure they all tell you that they all got jobs and not leaning on husband for support.
    $30,000 HKD that is about $3,850 USD a month. Here in USA if you make $3,850 a month, you are considered to have a decent life. Who in here right now make $3,850 a month? I sure not much.
    Even in China, no normal citizens make as much as $30,000 a month.
    The food she eat above is very normal. If Shirley can eat food like this then with Gregory salary and her salary together should not be the “money” issue for them to break up. I really think Shirley should make a short interview telling her side of the story.

I also see many Mexican people taking the public transportation carrying 4-5 kids with them and on welfare, and their husband are cutting grass, and guess what they still married, and even some are see are pregnant with another baby on the way.

        Any woman should NOT rely on a guy financially. Not EVER. What will you do when you used to the certain lifestyle and your husband cheats on you with some other girl and files for divorce? It will be so difficult for you to adapt to a lower single income. It also will be so so hard for you to start working again because you are not use to it. As a woman I really recommended women out there go get an education, have a job, at least that is something for you to fall back on.

        Funn, men and women in USA married actually quite late, if you said women in USA married early, can you please provided statistic of marriage in USA country?
        I am from Xian, and most men and women in Xian are married before even age 26-27.
        Here in USA, women and men here at age 30 they still in college trying to get their master, in fact in USA, is the country of where move in and live with each others first without even married. This is the western culture, it just different from Asian culture.
        I am nobody to tell you anything Funn, I am a ugly woman who married to an ugly husband. I am also a poor woman, who married to a poor man. I don’t married rich because I cannot fit in with the rich style when all my life I grew up in poor family. In marriage there more to just money, it about connecting with your husband and have the same background and values in life.
        Once again, I wish you good luck. This is just a discussion over the internet, no need to take it seriously Funn, smile!

If you married a good man, good for you! Many women will envy you, even if they hug their rubies and what nots! Fact is we all want a decent spouse who we can spend the rest of our lives with.

        As for statistics, I can’t give you any, as you can’t give me any either. But it is a fact from observation, in Asia, Asian women are getting married later and later, for career, for independence.

        Funn, I not put down myself at all. I am really poor and not sexy or beautiful like others women. May I share a little story with you about me, then maybe you can see why I am always content and never ask for more. At little I grow up in poor family, I also work at young age to help out, and even at work I get bully or insult (you know how China labor is). There are harsh time when my family don’t have money to pay house rent and we have to live in the backyard or balcony stair of someone house. Even when we immigrated to USA, no places for us to stay we have to live in a Buddhist temple for a while and we on welfare assistant. Lucky for me I get to be in USA, go to school, and get a job. With the money I make now in USD is so precious to me when I think back of when I was little work like a dog back in my hometown Xian. Think back when I only have white rice to eat, now I have a family, I am very happy. I don’t dream of married rich because I know I have no rich background, I will never understand the rich, I don’t even know how to communicate or get along with them, it just alot of differences.
        Just think of me like a child in North Korea, children in North Korea have to pick up dirty food from the ground to eat. Imagine if they come to USA and actually have a roof and clean food, then I sure that is enough for them to be satisfy.
        Sincerly I wish you luck find your dream man. I sometimes have bad temper too, and my English also not well so sometimes it cause difficulty for a reader, I’m sorry.
        My baby is very young, sometimes still cries and wake up in the middle of the night, so that add to my bad mood, Arg! Arg!!!
        I wish to shake hands with you and be friends. I read many of your comments and I actually like your posting, teach me alot of things.

      I guess the amount he earns shouldn’t be compared with normal citizens since he is cosidered a half-artiste?

      Compared to artistes, some are making at least 6 digits a month and the popular ones probably 7 digits a month.

      Hence.. with $30,000 HKD, its enough and comfortable for a normal family but will not be enough should they have any materialistic wants.

        BINGO!!!! This is what I am trying to say. $30,000 HKD is enough for any normal family. Looks at even graduated college students in USA, not all of them can make $3,850 USD (30,000 HKD) a month. Like I say above, compared to family who are on welfare and those Mexican people who carried 4-5 children on the bus everyday, $30,000 HKD is heaven to them.
        But if you are materialistic and always ask your husband to get you brand name stuff, then with Gregory salary, it’s nothing.

        – buy good healthy food for family

        – buy good quality stuff that can last long
        – medical expenses

        – buy good healthy food for family —— healthy food like vegetables anyone can buy, no need rich to buy, meat here in USA is cheap, this is not China. Even rich people eat lobster on the yatch everyday are not consider healthy, high cholesteral food.
        – sending children to good school and extra classes —– in USA, everyone go to high school finished 12 grades for free. In college there are Financial aids and loans to get to get your degree. I know many children who get Loans and Financial Aid to finish school without beg their parents to pay for them. Here in USA, money cannot buy everything. Try talking to Yale to sale you their degree with your money.
        – buy good quality stuff that can last long —— sure that is brand name stuff, no wonder why Greg don’t have enough money.
        – medical expenses —— there are healthcare, even you end up in the hospital and have major surgery, you can always do monthly payment back.
        – insurance — sure, but car insurance do not cost $30,000 HKD a month.
        – house mortgage and car loans ——- sure, but house and cars can be bought and payment monthly (most American citizens do it this way).

        @LeilaFan: I wonder how much you earn a month. You seem to be a person that dun care for money.

        I don’t know but I feel that: It isn’t bad to love money. Money is the condition to have a good life (as least in material side). Everyone is working more and more to earn more. Then should tell them to stop climbing high because money can’t buy everything in US?

        Maybe in US, money can’t buy everything because everything only can be bought by a lot of money :P.

        As for food, I can tell you that vegetables aren’t cheap at all :P. In some countries like in Europe, vegetable is even more expensive than meat. Good and clean food is expensive. Example, two options: A-type meat and old meat, of course old meat will be cheaper and unhealthier.

        “– insurance — sure, but car insurance do not cost $30,000 HKD a month.”

        Of course insurance don’t need HKD30,000. I’m talking about housing+food+school+insurance+durable stuff. Insurance contribute to the expenses.

        “buy good healthy food for family —— healthy food like vegetables anyone can buy, no need rich to buy, meat here in USA is cheap, this is not China. Even rich people eat lobster on the yatch everyday are not consider healthy, high cholesteral food.”

        The healthy food I mean is
        – food from organic shops (no pesticide and chemical)
        – vitamins, supplements and other health food
        – high grade meat
        Not lobster.

        Fox, money in USA cannot buy everything. Even if you a millionair son, try to get your ways into Yale if you don’t have the grades. Everyone working more and more is because the high standard living rises, they works more to make enough to pay their bills.
        Fox, you right I don’t care about money Throughout the years I in college, I did not have to pay 1 SINGLE PENNY for school. I’m poor, so I get free financial aid to pay for my tuition and my books.
        I make about $30,000 USD a year. I also married a poor man who work 9-5 job, the average employee, but everydays he come home for dinner, play and spend time with our son, and watch TV. Weekends, we would go our together or go BBQ with our family and relatives.
        The money we work is to pay bills, food and care for our son, my husband and I rarely buy anything for ourself.
        As long as I have food and not starve to deaths like those Korean children, then I am content. As long as I have my husband and my son with me, I don’t need anymore money.
        I’m not a dreamer, I don’t sit around and dream of married rich men. I am greatful that I’m not those children in Africa starving to dead right now.

        @leilafan,

        ofcourse you can’t have rubbish marks, but for rich kids they only need average to get accepted because their parents give the university money to build a new library etc. also it makes sense to since the kids will inherit their parents wealth and most likely be successful as well which will contribute to the brand of the university.

        im happy to hear that there are some people out there that value family more than money! The truth is that it’s more meaningful to have a family that you love and loves you back than having alot of money.

        Thans exodious, I agree.
        The way you view money are based on how you raise and your living styles. All my life, I raise in a poor family, but full of laughters. Even grown up, I married a very average man, he don’t have money for me, but he treats me and our son good. He works, go home and he would even cook, he even wash dishes, do laundry and play with our son.
        Rich men don’t need do that, they have money to hire anyone to do it for them.
        Sure, we not rich, but weekends we go out with family and relatives and we talks, laugh. The family understanding each others is precious. Looks at rich family, they fighting and even hurts each others over money.
        Having family together with laughters are mot important. A marriage last because 2 person with the same viewpoints in life, same goals, same personality, and mutual understanding and compromise and patience.
        Remember money can make by your hands, anyone can make money by finding a job, but finding someone who truely loves you is not easy.

        Who says wanting money means I will dump whoever I am with for a millionaire? Before I settle with someone, I will find someone rather ambitious or is successful in the first place. Not just rich husbands will dump wives for younger girls, any man would, rich, poor, young or old. Just because one doesn’t settle for ordinariness and insists on extraordinariness doesn’t make that person materialistic or greedy. Ambition can be good, just don’t go stepping on dead bodies to achieve that. And it is possible to be decent AND rich AND happy. Not that I am saying you’re settling for less, of course not! But I suppose any statement to say “My husband won’t do this and this” or “I am contented, happy” should not be made until you’re at the end of your life. Be careful though; contented wives make for careless wives.

        I don’t have anything else to say to you because we obviously don’t see things the same way.
        Women in USA are indepent. Why do you need boyfriend/husband to provide for you? How about learn how to be independence, and get a job to support yourself. Even if my husband leave me right now, I won’t died, I have a job, I can survive with my own money. You see in life, nobody can give you any guarentee forever, only you supporting yourself can do that.
        And to all the women, instead of sitting around at home and dream of married rich husband. And wait for him to provide for you?! PROVIDE FOR YOURSELF, GET A JOB. THEN WORRY ABOUT CHOOSING A MATE.

        obviously you have already restricted yourself when choosing a potential mate i.e. some either rich or have ambition. Nothing wrong with that really just makes your search alot harder since those guys tend to play around since they have money and power.

        Best of luck finding one.

        I also wish you good luck.
        Like I said above, women should get a job, support themselves first and then find a mate. At least there is something she can fall back on when her husband left her.
        And poor/average men not likely left their wife, 1) They poor, no girls want them. 2) They poor, they do not go to places to have chance to meet other women. All they do is go work and go home with their wife and kids. 3) Again, they poor, they are damn happy that they have a wife willing to married them and stick with them, chances they left their wife, not likely. Like you said, most people loves money so much, then girls will not go after my husband because he poor.

        Did I say I need a husband to provide for me? I just said I want my guy to be successful and ambitious. Doesn’t mean I just sit there and do nothing and be fed with money. Of course women are independent. But to say a sweeping statement that women in USA is independent is an insult to women in other countries. The last I check, women in USA tend to marry much earlier than those in Asia, and have children younger and remain as home maker. Would you like such a sweeping statement generalising a particular gender in a particular country?

        And I am not restricting myself. I am just merely stating my preference. In life of course who you end up with may be different who you think you should end up with. Doesn’t mean I can’t daydream a little. And I am not with anyone. I am not married, I have no kids, I work and I pay my own bills, and I am as Leilafan so love to proclaim, that sort of independent woman that you keep harping on. Doesn’t mean I wished to be married, but can’t a girl daydream? Sometimes I am dead tired from worrying about bills or being alone, can’t I daydream I have some rich prince charming scoop me up and carry me into the sunset? Does it mean I will? I don’t think so. I am those who rather earn my own living, live my own life. Marriage is to be optional, children is in the end probably optional too.

        And I repeat, a man who is dirt poor and useless doesn’t make him someone faithful. Who in the end you choose to be with and that man’s character is dependent on how you see that person and value yourself. Countless of poor stupid idiotic men who married good women also chase after other women. Maybe this phenomenon is rare in USA, but in Asia, it is a reality. Rich poor, smart stupid, professional or blue collar worker, they’re in the end men. So to say only the rich cheats and the poor or ordinary remains faithful is a delusional statement.

        And seriously, maybe you can survive on that sort of money, and good for you, but don’t belittle those who can’t. I applaud those with a bit of ambition, and I detest women who lives on men, like some parasite, as do some men do with their women, but in the end, every situation is different. Being a home maker doesn’t make you a parasite. It depends on the circumstances. Have seen women who took good care of home, never worked, dedicated mom, so are they parasites just because they don’t contribute monetary wise? Contribution can be from other things. Widen your perspective as I shall widen my search.

        But I shall never ever marry beneath me unless there is some compatibility thing. I am looking more for potential than just mere success but at my age, I hardly have any time to wait for my man to be successful (possibly a toyboy!), hence my choice of someone already successful.

        You’re wrong. SOme women go for less successful man or any man because it is a challenge, especially those happily married. Some women are vicious, they like a good challenge and to get that sort of men who are faithful to their wives and good provider, that is to some the ultimate. Any woman would want a good man. Irony is if that good man leaves his wife and children for that other woman, doesn’t that make him NOT a good man?

        Why do you look down on housewives and homemakers? Some women choose to stay at home to provide full time care for her children and manage the home well for her husband. These women are not inferior to women who decide to keep their job and continue working after marriage.

        Well Said Funn! Everyone has different standards of living… one woman should not condemn another just b/c she wants to have a better life for herself and her children.

        @LeilaFan,
        What you list is here is the most basic standards of living…I want my children to have more opportunities than I did growing… w/ music lessons, sports, tutoring, etc, etc. I grew up in a home where we always had to worry about money, and sometimes that is just not healthy for a child to have to worry w/ her parents about how to pay for new glasses or have her cavity fill.

        Besides, I think most of us here are not looking for millionaires, we are just looking for men who are equally as ambitious as ourselves… and there isn’t anything wrong w/ that.

        Besides, marrying a poor man b/c you think he has a lesser chance of cheating on you is just a bad reason to marry someone. I know plenty of educated young men who have high moral standards who would not cheat on their significant others.

        Um .. there’s nothing wrong with making more than your husband. I do not mind carrying the financial burden as long as he compensates my insecurity in other ways.

        There’s no struggle if people spend on what they can afford. Not everyone wants to be rich… I don’t care to be rich but I strive for financial security.

        And to whoever saying s/he wants to do this and that for the kids … My future kids won’t have to take music lessons or do everything I wanted as a kid. I turned out perfectly fine and I came from a very humble family. I’m so sick of people telling me how much they want to give to their kids when they neglect the most basic elements.

        Yes, I don’t mind date a man make less than me.
        And I married my husband because he is a great husband who loves me, cooks for me, even do the housework around the house after a day of coming back from work tiring. Sure, he is poor, but that doesn’t matter, because he can provide me things others men cannot.
        I write a comparision between rich men and poor . Maybe you should re-read this part I wrote: “I was giving an examples of rich men and poor men. Rich men have more money, more option to choose, they go out and meet more people.

      It’s untrue that rich men cheat more than poor men. One of my sister’s friends parents are going through divorce now because the father has been cheating behind the wife’s back for a while. And they come from a lower-class family.

        Chriselle, your case is one case. There are many other case of rich men who cheats.
        I can say to you I know someone who are wealth off and cheat.
        Poor men work their butts off to make ends meet, not likely they will cheats. Again without money, what kind of girl would willing to be with them.
        My question to you is, ARE YOU WILLING TO CHEAT with a Poor Man who barely make ends meet? If your answer is No, then obviously rich men cheats more.
        Rich men having money will have more people interested in having affairs with them.
        They go to places more, know more people, meet more people also, more chances.And if you have money it’s easier to facilitate.

        @LeilaFan,

        Not saying that rich men don’t cheat at all. I’m sure both types cheat, but maybe not equally. I don’t know which type cheats more.

        I think a woman will be likely to cheat with a man (even knowing that he is married) when he wants the sex and when she needs the money. He doesn’t have to be filthy rich, just as long as he makes more than her, is willing to pay a part of her fees, and she would be willing to be with him.

        Haha… I can’t answer your answer about whether I’m willing to cheat with a poor man because I am not willing to cheat AT ALL.

        It’s true that the more places they go to they more likely they are to meet a mate, but it’s all a matter of who they meet. Rich men will probably meet more physically attractive partners while poor men will settle for someone less attractive? It there’s demand, there’s supply though the supply may not be the best, it doesn’t mean its non-existant.

      LeilaFan,
      Even men who are moderate earners can keep mistresses. It really depends on the woman’s situation and if she were in the arrangement for money, how quickly she is willing to barter her body for money. Perhaps all she is looking for is a man to pay her rent and perhaps pay give her a little money on the side. I know of a woman who had her own job and did not have legal resident status. She was the mistress to a man who was a construction worker. His wife was overseas.

      Also cheating does not necessarily entail keeping a mistress. Having an interlude with a prostitute may not be necessarily expensive, especially with women who do not have legal status in the country.

      Even the poorest villages in China have prostitution halls. While the men, both married and unmarried, are not well off, they manage to pool together money for a visit. When a man feels the urge for sex, similar to a gambling addict, he will find money to pay for his interests.

      Regarding money, I share similar values as you. Our family came from a very poor village in China and we did grow up with very little money. Many dinner discussions were about money and making ends meet during my childhood. My parents made very little money, well below the US poverty level. Many immigrants started out with similar experiences in a new country. I worked in a garment factory when I was a little kid. Such experiences only made us stronger, value what we have right now, and be more money-wise.

    Andy and Shirley are perfect for each other…..

    He’s the controlling type and will always be wondering if she’ll cuckold him in the relationship/marriage

    She’ll no doubt stay true, now that she got what she wanted. But his controlling manner will eventually stifle her and she will either be (a) miserable and take it for the rest of her life, and/or (b) start to look for outside meals.

    Either way, they thoroughly deserve one another. A relationship forged in deception is not stable and will not last.

If you flip the other way around, Guy in relationship, cheated and make another girl pregnant probably it won’t make such a big headline. (ie: derek kwok for example).

Derek have a daughter with his ex-wife, so ofcourse his daughter is more important than his girlfriend at the time (Joyce). I feel that Derek get back with his wife for his daughter.

    That Andy, what a jerk! She is single, of course anyone can woo her, but to do so publicly is the act of a jerk. Shirley be careful who you choose to spend the rest of your life with; if he can snatch someone’s girlfriend so thoughtlessly he can certainly dump you for a young girl in future. I have never ever read such jerk comments before. Gregory sounds like a gentleman and I think he lost because he was complacent. But Gregory, it is HER loss. No doubt a good man will have many many prettier girls circling you. When he is out of his denial, I am sure he will be angry and then he will see there are better trees in the forest.

    Jayne, is there any negative comments left for Andy after his selfish thoughtless declaration? Why not translate those to balance out the mushiness? I am sure there are those who posted in his weibo with negative comments.

        No doubt. All successful men are driven, ambitious, a go getter, competetive. Question is what happens after the competition? Will she be as attractive as she was during the competition? Is her attraction is on the fact that she was unavailable? I have no doubt he is successful because of the way he goes about things. But doesn’t make his less of a jerk and more likable.

        Perhaps the source of most of the Shirley articles came from Orientaldaily and Hong Kong tabloid magazines, which did assume an early stance against her. The majority of Chinese articles are bias towards Shirley, so it influences the resulting translated articles on this site as well.

        Do you have links of any articles that sounded more neutral towards Shirley’s side of the story? I don’t think I have come across any articles that were actually neutral in tone. The Scoop was the perfect platform for Shirley to tell her side of the story since it was TVB owned and there would not be any twisting of her words against her. People’s stance on the incident were formed by the statements the viewer wanted to focus on and the resulting interpretation.

    I think Gregory should just let go and let live, it doesn’t seem like Shirley would be stepping up with any explanations to give Gregory closure.

    Furthermore, I doubt Shirley will ever return to TVB, can’t imagine what might happen to her if she accidentally bumped into Gregory’s father back in TVB.

    And whatever happened to the “I still love you” message that Shirley sent to Gregory after the scandal broke out, according to Gregory and his brother?

    Gregory also seemed to be inconsistent since as Jayne has pointed out above, Gregory claimed that he only received text message from Shirley AFTER her public announcement, implying that there no prior conversations regarding the breakup. However, based on earlier reports, Gregory said that Shirley told him she was pregnant and asked to break up BEFORE the announcement. Hmm…wonder why?

    “Last week, Shirley’s new boyfriend, Andy Ng, sent a text message to Gregory, “Thank you for taking care of Shirley for so many years. In the future, I will treat her very well, love and care for her. I hope that you will wish us grow old together in happiness.””

    I don’t really know whether his true intent was purely to get Gregory’s blessings or not but judging from this text, it just gives me a bad impression that this Andy seemed to be a despicable man, sending this to a Gregory when you have already snatched his girlfriend away and through supposedly devious means too?

    It’s sounded like you were flaunting your victory in front of this bloke and then rubbing salt into his wound manx, not cool dude!

    All in all, I think Gregory should just move on manx, there’s more to life than romance! Besides, if a woman is truly in love with you, nothing can keep her away but if a woman is no longer in love with you, nothing can make her stay (:

        My wife and I had 2 bowls of fishball/cuttleball noodles and a vegetable dish in Mongkok back in March. Cost us around HKD90 (roughly translated into RM36 at today’s exchange rate). That’s how expensive HK is.

        It’s still not reasonable by Malaysia standard. Food prices might have increased in Malaysia, but, a bowl of fishball noodle still does not cost RM18 unless you go to some high class restaurant/shop where beside the food you also pay for the air-con, rental and deco.

    Headline: “Shock-mouthed Shirley  enlightens the spilt in an exclusive interview with TVB’s “Scoop””

    After Shirley Yeung’s one-sided announcement on breaking up with her boyfriend of 9 years, Gregory Lee, her image had been burdened by the scandal.

    Accepting an interview with TVB’s “Scoop”, Shirley’s face was drenched with tears, explaining the rumors, Shirley reiterated that since last year, cracks had started appearing in her relationship with Gregory. 

    Asked exactly when did the formal broke up happened, Shirley fumbled that it was during the month of February – March when she formally moved out of the condominium. 

    When questioned why did she still turned up at Gregory’s birthday party last month, even though they had already broke up, Shirley explained, “Our common friends had all turned up. Gregory really wanted me to be there. As a friend, although we have broke up, still hope for happy days to appear.” 

    Regarding the rumors about their initial plan to get married, Shirley said with her shocked mouth that they was no such thing and also denied being pregnant. 

    Not too sure what is “口震震” but I translated it as “shock-mouthed” and translated “唔想佢咁開心的日子唔出現” as “still hope for happy days to appear.”

    one is certainly a sick, sad, and lowly man in my book to deliberately go after a woman he knew was in a deep relationship with another man already. ethics and morals makes me respect a person more than being rich and successful who lacked basic decency. maybe because he is ambitious all his life, therefore he go all out to pursue whoever he wanted, even if that woman was not a free woman. Andy’s past relationships must of failed, that is why he is still available to go after and impregnate Shirley. hope Shirley did not choose the wrong man. only she would know down the road.

        I do not loath him for snatching another man’s gf, all is fair in love and war. But what I loath is him gloating about it, rubbing salt into wound, like some victorious conquests when human emotions are involved. Morals is important, but love isn’t about morals, but what you do when you got what you wants reflects on your personality, attitude and person in general. I wouldn’t say he was immoral. She was and still is unmarried, and even if she is married, again love is love. But to go posting all those stuff in Weibo, declaring to the world what you did and do so proudly without any care for other people’s feelings is to me an act of a very pompous idiotic selfish man. If you care nothing for your reputation, at least have a care for her reputation. Look what Shirley has to do now; interviews, lies, pretending to be sorry, etc and we fans of TVB seems to suspect otherwise. Look at gregory, already he was shocked and in denial, now he had to read the victor’s blow by blow on how he intend to care for his newfound love.

        Have a bit of compassion. if not, a bit of manners. If that you can’t even give, a bit of tact. If no tact at all, what more can I say? He is to be loathed. Some people just deserve all the hate.

      @LeilaFan, Agree completely. This actually reminds me of Michelle Reis when some people here were saying that she had a past of snatching other women’s husband/boyfriend and that what comes around goes around.

      I believe that if Shirley left Gregory for Andy, then Andy also needs to watch out because she is capable of doing the same to him. (However, there’s still a part of me that Shirley left Gregory for a good reason and I do believe that she still loves him. After all, they have been together for 9 years.) It’s horrible to be with a partner who lacks morals and dignity.
