Strong TVB Presence At Hong Kong Book Fair


23 July 2008

The annual Hong Kong Book Fair opened today at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre in Wanchai.

To promote the DVD release of the third season of TVB's inspirational travelogue series On The Road <向世界出發>, General Manager Stephen Chan (陳志雲) and executive Virginia Lok (樂易玲) led artistes Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼), Tavia Yeung (楊怡), Bowie Lam (林保怡) and Myolie Wu (胡杏兒) in manning the TVB stand.

They were joined by retired veteran Yu Mo Lin (余慕蓮), who stars in one of the travelogue sets, where she shared her memories of her sister and the early days in Hong Kong during a reminiscent tour of China's Guizhou.
Tavia appeared at the event wearing a deep-V dress and asked if she was trying to catch people's attentions with her sexy dress, she laughed that as the weather was so hot, she wanted to look more summery. She spoke of her intentions to write a book with her mother and sister about handicrafts.

Charmaine also turned a few heads, showing off her legs in a mini-dress. She revealed that in the past, she had worn a disguise to visit the book fair and she has a particular interest in buying love stories and cook books. She said that she has just returned from visiting her family in Hawaii and asked if she had met anyone special on her trip, she said that she does not like Western men and neither she nor her 94 year old grandmother is in any rush for her to get married.

Stephen made a quick detour to recent chat show guest Cally Kwong (鄺美雲)'s stall to present her with some gifts. Asked about rumours that TVB intends to present Raymond Lam (林峯) with this year's anniversary award for best actor, Stephen smiled that the company will support all its staff and in a change to the voting procedures this year, the winners of the top awards will be decided by the public.

Additional News Translation from Singtao :

When the reporter pointed out that Charmaine did not dress sexily enough, she asked back: "We have to dress sexy today? Well I did revealed my legs." She revealed that in the past, she would put on disguise to go on a shopping spree at book fair, mostly buying romance novels and cookbooks. Though she is often busy filming series, she believes that the cookbooks will be put to good use eventually. Recently on a holiday break to Hawaii, she revealed that she will be filming a new series in late September. She enjoyed her holiday and indicates that she will be visiting her younger brother in Shanghai soon. When asked if she have met anyone special, she laughed and said: "I will be a pair with my younger brother, but he is getting married next year. Both my elder and younger brother gets married before 30, but I don't have such luck. However I'm not in a rush, I believe everything is fated. I'm happy with my life now and I'm learning to cook, just in case."

Ivy : Charmaine looks fairer after her holidays! Hahaha. Or maybe the white dress made her look fairer. So Charmaine will be leaving for Shanghai soon! No wonder she came back early from Hawaii. Anyway, continue enjoying your holidays and rest, Charmaine! Not fond of Myolie Wu's new hairstyle. I still prefer her in long hair. Looks more feminine. Tavia dyed her hair and the colour suits her and compliments her more tanned complexion. She expressed in her blog that she got tanned after returning from Sabah. LOL. And TVB main awards going to be chosen by voting system?? I think there are advantages and also disadvantages by making it this way. But..haha...TVB will never do something to their disadvantage!
