Liza at a Horseracing Activity in Happy Valley
Dr. Liza Wang and Raymond Lam were invited to kickoff the horse-racing activity for 2009 in Happy Valley. Liza, Raymond along with the Horse-racing club CEO and Hong Kong Feng Shui expert Mak Ling Ling greeted the media at the press conference. Liza and Raymond also posed with the biggest golden horseshoe in Hong Kong.
Responding to Vivian Chow
Liza asked the reporters if they managed to get any news of Vivian Chow's wedding. Smiling, Liza said,
"I think all of you must have spent a lot of time and energy on this coverage. I've seen her wedding pics and she looks very happy.
(But she didn't smile much) No, I don't think so!
(Is it an act?) No, of course not!
(Is it to redeem her fallen reputation?) No, as she is not entirely involved in the entertainment industry.
(Do you think she is not entirely happy with the wedding arrangements?) Everyone has their own arrangements, most importantly is that they feel comfortable at their own wedding. Vivian has never wanted an elaborate wedding.
(But their parents didn't attend the wedding) How do you know?"
Responding to Zhang ZiYi's beach photos
(Have you seen Zhang Ziyi's pictures?) Yes, it's all over the papers. But it was taken during her leisure time, many other celebrities have had similar encounters. However, I feel that the paparazzi should respect the celebrities' privacy, especially during their own time. Most importantly is that Zhang ZiYi's actions did not affect anyone else, but I feel that being a public figure, she should be more wary of her surroundings. Personally, I would not sunbathe in my birthday suit but I do go swimming in indoor swimming pools."
The Hong Kong Chief Executive responded to Sun Gwong cinema matter raised by the Chinese Artist Association of Hong Kong. Liza being the chairman of this association hoped that the association would receive good news of the extension of the contract before the Chinese New Year.
(Would the government buy over the cinema and subsequently lease it over to the association?) "No, as the landlord would then take advantage of the situation and ask for a very high price. We have stopped all correspondence with the landlord as they did not manage to reach any agreement despite several negotiations. Without Sun Gwong Cinema, the Chinese Opera industry would be severely affected as their performance would be cut by half as they do not have any other cinemas nearby. Although there are other cinemas in other areas, but as they are located to far away, surely the audience numbers would be decreased dramatically. If the Sun Gwong cinema were to be closed, there would be a huge number of individuals that would be jobless."
I LOVE the 2nd pic. soooooooooo cute!
Go Liza! I support your work for the Cantonese Opera community.
