Cheung Wah Biu may be returning to TVB

Wayne Lai supports Cheung Wah Biu to come back
The 'golden script-writer' who once wrote TVB dramas Rosy Business and No Regrets had gone to Taiwan to further develop his career. It was said that the dramas that he had written did not suit the taste of the locals there, so he may be coming back to TVB to work with producer Lee Tim Shing. About working with Lee once more, Cheung Wah Biu did not elaborate further. Wayne Lai, who became a 2-time TV King winner based on Cheung's dramas, gave his full support to Cheung when he heard the news. "Me, Wah Biu and Tim Gor form the 'iron triangle'. If he comes back, it's my birthday wish fulfilled!" Tim Gor also welcomes Cheung Wah Biu to come back as he can help out for his new drama, which is slated to start filming in September.

Comments: Wow, if Cheung Wah Biu is really returning, then it's really good! =D I think Lee Tim Shing should be filming his last drama in September (lol, we all thought that his last drama was No Regrets, but he renewed his contract with TVB). Should there be another Lee-Cheung collaboration, no matter who the actors are, I will definitely be looking forward to it.

To be honest, most TVB dramas this year are very 'mo liu' (though I like watching Only You) and haven't been able to match up to some of last year's dramas (not to mention dramas from years ago). I really hope that this would mark a new beginning for TVB, if not it's back to Korean dramas for me (which I have watched a lot more these few days).

Since when did the online voting start zZz?! -.-''' I think only one NRIC can be used per day, so that prevents people from pumping in votes, which is only fair. For non-Chinese users, just click on the voting page. It will be in Chinese, but you can change the language in the middle right-hand section.

1st prize: 3D2N stay in Hong Kong, with a tour of TVB City (WHAT THE... I WANT!!!) and a pair of tickets to the awards ceremony.

The Starhub-TVB Awards 2011 ceremony will be held on the 16th July 2011 at the Marina Bay Sands Ballroom. So hurry hurry, vote for our dear No Regrets' cast today! =D


Event line-up
5:30pm: Pre-Cocktail
6:00pm: Red Carpet
7:00pm – 10:00pm: Show-time

Venue: Marina Bay Sands – Sands Grand Ballroom

UPDATE: Wayne Lai will be coming to Singapore for the Starhub-TVB awards ceremony! It seems that Fala Chen will be making her way here as well. I'm not sure about Sheren Tang, but I do hope that she makes it. Tickets for the awards ceremony are priced from $68 onwards, which excludes the $3 SISTIC booking fee. It's very expensive to me, so unless more of my favourite TVB artistes are going, I don't think I will pay so much to go and see them. BUT, if Sheren is coming, I may change my mind. xP

祥友一生 of 黎耀祥吧 has also very kindly provided the transcript of the interview here, so if you do not understand Cantonese, you can read what he said here. =)

About Wayne's upcoming No Regrets' concert in USA, you can click here for more information, but I don't really know how reliable this information is, because a concert at 1 am?! You have gotta be kidding me man! O.O''' For Wayne's concert in Vancouver, please look as KamSheung's comment here. Sheren and Wayne will be performing together in Toronto on the 19th June 2011 at Casino Rama. Click here for more details.

Comments: Aww, Wayne still misses the No Regrets' team!! So do I. He did SMS Cheung Wah Biu (Rosy Business' and No Regrets' script-writer) to come back to Hong Kong to eat, but he didn't reply. T_T

Wayne also gave a call to Sheren a few days back to discuss about their upcoming concert in June. ;)

By the way, happy belated birthday, Lau Sing Gor! ^^

Sheren Tang doesn't mind filming Malaysian dramas

| Monday, May 2, 2011 | 0 comments |

Famous Hong Kong TVB actress Sheren Tang will always consider the scripts and roles before she films a drama. As for love, she has left everything to God. Although she is still single, but she is still happy.

As a spokesperson for a drink company, she attended the company's event wearing a black dress, pink stockings, black heels and a black cap.

In order to attend the event, Sheren has personally taken leave from filming her Mainland China drama 倾城雪 (sorry there's no English title LOL!). When asked if she would concentrate on filming in China, she laughed and said that Hong Kong is part of China, and she herself is a Chinese, so she did not think about going to a particular region to expand her career.

Sheren hopes that she will be able to film a drama in China and Hong Kong every year. "Then it's fair." At the same time, she did not rule out the possibility of filming Malaysian dramas. "However, what I really hope for is the quality of the drama. It's not really important as to where the drama is from."
