Lately, Sharon Chen is working in New York. She would go out onto the streets to do some sightseeing. She is most fascinated by the different styles of advertisements on the street. One of her favorite advertisement was a painting. It was unique because it makes you think you are in an art gallery. The advertisement was a visual feast for Sharon but she also had a food feast! There were different snacks and food eatery below the advertisement. Sharon coincidently found her favorite “butterfly buns” (蝴蝶包). She said: “Usually, these buns are only available in Canada. Since I found these in the US, I need to buy my fill to try it out. When I eat it, it tastes as good as the one in Canada.”

TVB stars joins excited fans in singing contest

Posted by scnetwork on March 22, 2008

13 March 2008

Yesterday is the second day of TVB stars promo tour in Changsha. After filming promotional clips for HunanTV, the 3 stars Bowie Lam, Charmaine Sheh and Joe Ma rushed to the mass fans gathering scheduled at noon. On the other hand Myolie Wu, Sharon Chan and Selena Li arrived at Changsha airport at 1:45pm and rushed over as well without taking a break.

This mass fans gathering have attracted many passionate fans. Excited fans started to wait at the venue as early as 9am. When the 6 stars made their appearance, all the fans started shouting excitedly, displaying their passionate feelings. After signing their names on the promotional board, the 6 stars went up onstage and started to interact with fans.

The TVB stars are here in Changsha to promote recently and upcoming TVB series aired on HunanTV such as [Glittering Days], [Land of Wealth], [Dance of Passion] and [To Grow With Love]. At the same time the 2nd season of [Strictly Come Dancing] will be held in April. Before the stars appeared, the organizers broadcast some of their series and event clips, making the fans feel excited. When the stars finally appeared, the fans loudly cheers to welcome their idols.

The 6 stars said hello to fans in Hunan dialect and the fans gathering officially begins. The first segment “Let’s sing together” is to promote [Glittering Days]. [GD] is filled with songs and dances from 1960’s and took the first spot in Mainland nationwide ratings. Fans are surprised that Charmaine, who portrayed ‘wild fowl transformed into phoenix’ farmer girl sang all the songs by herself in the series. In this segment, the host picked a few lucky fans play singing games with idols. The rule is that each song must have the word ‘spring’ and ‘star’ in them. After a fierce battle, Charmaine is indeed the super singer in the series with their team A (along with Bowie & Joe) winning against team B in the game.

The next segment is “Let’s exercise together”. Each stars have their own favorite sports for example jogging, swimming, high jump etc. For Myolie who gained nearly 40 pounds for her role as Ho Mei Tin in [TGWL], shared her secret on how to regain her slim figure quickly after filming. Afterwards the stars mimicked some dance moves under dance teacher’s guidance and showed off beautiful poses. Joe pretended to be jealous and started to make jokes, mimicking a stiff mannequin and making the crowd laugh. [TGWL] will be aired after [GD] finished its run on HunanTV and fans will be able to appreciate Myolie’s fine acting in the series.

As for the last segment “Let’s perform together”, the host invited some fans onstage to perform with Bowie. Even though Bowie doesn’t have much on-screen scene with Charmaine in [DOP], the arduous filming process left a deep impression in both of them. Bowie’s role Yim Man Hei is a very aggressive clan leader but his romance and fate is extremely volatile and filled with obstacles. Bowie personally loves this role, even more than his Sun Bak Yeung role in [War & Beauty]. The lucky fans also have the opportunity to mimic Yim Man Hei’s arrogant look alongside Bowie. He also kept making ‘cool’ expression to tease fans, showing his friendly side.

After the fans gathering ended, the group will divide into two team and rushed to two different station to attend TV shows. They will be sharing their experience and feelings on the show, therefore fans should not be missing these shows. Charmaine and Joe will be returning to Hong Kong the next day while Bowie, Sharon and Selina will be attending the live telecast of “Happy 2008” on 14th of March.

Sharon Chan Supports World Glaucoma Day

Sharon Chan (陳敏之), Sharon Luk (陸詩韻) and Lai Lok Yi (黎諾懿) attended the press conference for World Glaucoma Day <世界青光眼日> this afternoon at Olympian City.

Sharon Chan revealed that she has −10.00 near-sightedness and considered laser eye surgery three or four years ago but, after her optometrist warned her of the possible side effects, she rejected the idea in hope that, with time, advancements in technology would remove the risks. She said that she had spoken to many artists who had undergone laser eye surgery, and, though the vast majority had been quite successful, Patrick Dunn (鄧梓峰) suffered from a few side effects.

Sharon Chan revealed that, when she needs to film for a period of over 12 hours or film crying scenes, she removes her contact lenses. However, she said that she only does this occasionally, because she finds it hard to interact with her co-stars when she can’t see properly. She admitted that she only has herself to blame for her poor vision, because, as a child, she thought it would be stylish to wear glasses so would glue herself close to the television screen.

Sharon Luk is also near-sighted, at −4.00 and −6.00 in her left and right eye respectively. She revealed that she, too, considered laser eye surgery. She said that during her time as a flight attendant, she would succumb to vanity, and wear her contacts for the entire duration of her lengthy flights. But now, she said, she knows better than to risk her vision and is sure to get an eye check-up annually. She added that her grandmother suffers from cataracts, so she has made it a habit to frequently buy eye-care food products for both her grandmother and herself.

Speaking of Sir Run Run Shaw (邵逸夫爵士) being admitted into hospital this week, Sharon Luk said that Sir Run Run was simply going for an annual check-up, and there was no particular concern for his health.

Sharon Chan (陳敏之), Jacqueline Chong (莊思敏) and Maggie Lee (李曼筠) took part in an event today at Tai Po’s Super Plaza to welcome the year of the rat and also to wish for success at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. The three beauties wore some colourful swimsuit dresses had a quick lesson in a traditional cello from the guest performers at the event.

Jacqueline said that she was not worried about her boyfriend Deep Ng (吳浩康) complaining about her appearing in a sexy outfit for the event because he is a very open-minded person. She added that does not mind wearing fashionable mini-dresses because she can still look beautiful without it being overly provocative.

Sharon said frankly that she did not feel she was dressing sexily and when asked if she was prepared to reveal more for a higher fee, she said that she has already put her fee up and is happy with it at the moment.

Today also happened to be Sharon’s birthday and she said that she will be going for a meal with her family, but she had a party with her friends yesterday and received many presents. As for what her boyfriend bought her, she evaded the question and said that her boyfriends and girlfriends bought her a lot of things, but she wished for the most important thing, which is good health.

After her transition from the modelling world into movies, Maggie has had a busy year and has received a lot of offers of work over the new year period. However, she said she would most like to go on holiday with her parents, but she will see what they would like to do.

Sharon Chan Man Chi and Johnson Lee filmed a scene for “Thieves Have Principles” 《盜亦有道》in Tsim Tsa Tsui. Unafraid of the contaminated water, Sharon extends her hand into a dirty canal to retrieve a ring for an elderly lady. Sharon’s gesture wins Johnson’s admiration.

In “Thieves Have Principles,” Johnson will act as a thief who steals from the rich to assist the poor. Johnson and Sharon will portray a couple in the series.

Sharon laughed and said that kind-hearted women are extremely popular with men. Since Sharon was raised by her grandfather, she highly respects and loves elderly people. “Many people complain that the elderly are troublesome. But who is more troublesome than I am? My grandfather spoiled me when I was a child.”

Sharon said that Johnson often likes to sit quietly in a corner to think. “However, if I ask him to imitate the Four Heavenly Kings, he will do so and make everyone laugh.”

Sharon Chan (陳敏之) and Eunis Chan (陳嘉容) were among the guest models invited to present the creations at the awards ceremony for the Tahitian Pearl Jewellery Design Competition (大溪地珠寶首飾設計比賽) yesterday.

Dressed in a beautiful silver gown, Sharon modelled a stunning black pearl necklace set and she said that she liked the pearls a lot, but has never bought any for herself because she does not know how to tell the difference between natural and simulated pearls. However, she has bought a 2 carat diamond as a reward for herself in the past, costing HK$100,000.

Eunis revealed that when she was 18 year old, she received a pair of pearl earrings from her mother as a birthday gift and they are of great sentimental value so she does not wear them very often. With Christmas approaching, she said that she has not had any invitations to parties yet, but if she has nothing arranged, then she will spend the time with her family and her girlfriends. She added that for the festive occasion, then she has to dress up and join in some parties.

William So: My Glasses Are Like My Skin

William So (蘇永康), Miki Yeung (楊愛瑾), Tracy Ip (葉翠翠), Sharon Chan (陳敏之), Mandy Cho (曹敏莉) and Alvina Kong (江欣燕) were among the guests at the opening of a designer eyewear store in Kowloon Station’s Elements Mall.

Well known for his bespectacled look, William smiled that his glasses are as important to him as his skin and he remembered on one occasion when he went running without his glasses on, no-one recognised him at all. He realised how important they were to his image after he put them back on and everyone instantly recognised him again.

William revealed that he has over 300 pairs of glasses at home and recently spent a five-figure sum on a pair that he fell in love with. He is also planning to buy a pair of glasses that were once worn by late singing sensation Danny Chan (陳百強).

Miki revealed that she will be spending Christmas working on her new movie in a character that is quite difficult to portray. With the news that her former Cookies colleagues Stephy Tang (鄧麗欣), Kary Ng (吳雨霏) and Theresa Fu (傅穎) are all holding their own concerts, Miki was asked if she was envious of them. She said that they have released more albums than her, but she is not in a hurry and will be concentrating more on her film career.

Tracy will be appearing in numerous promotional events during the busy Christmas period and she said that she will take advantage of this to make some more money. She said that when the stock market falls, then she will be investing in some shares. As well as her fee, Tracy was also presented with a pair of sunglasses from the sponsor and she said that they were ideal because the lenses were large enough to cover bags under her eyes when she goes out without wearing make-up. Tracy admitted that although an artiste’s salary is quite high, she has a lot of outgoings because she has to care for her retired father and pay for rent as well as her mother’s medical fees, maid and housekeeping.

Sharon Chan Wears 40lb of Chocolate

Posted by scnetwork on December 31, 2007

26 December 2007

Last night, Sharon Chan and Maggie (動漫) attended 黃埔新天地’s Chocolate Christmas Fashion Show to show off outfits made out of chocolate. Sharon’s spaghetti strap dress is made of 40 pounds of chocolate, so as a result, walking has been difficult. And Maggie has on a chocolate bikini top with a matching short skirt that showed off her body. Not only did it steal the light from Sharon, it attracted many men to the event to take pictures.

Barbecue on Christmas Eve

Personally, Sharon loves to eat chocolate. She can finish a whole box of Hawaiian Nuts Chocolate. With regards to Maggie stealing her light, Sharon smiling says: “Don’t stress, we frequently bump into each other when attending events.” The reporter asks: “Would you dare wear Maggie’s outfit?” Sharon says: “I can’t because I don’t have the body. Maggie’s body is very suitable for this outfit.” Sharon spent Christmas Eve with her old classmates barbecuing and exchanging gifts. Earlier on, she had purchased three massage machines at one time to give to her family (including one for her mom). Last night, Sharon was looking forward to receiving Christmas gifts because she has been receiving gifts from her friends every year.

Maggie Put on Weight

Maggie reached the event location half an hour early to put on her outfit. However, because the outfit was too sexy, to prevent exposure, they brought out pins, needles and thread, and a stapler. As a result, the event was delayed for 2 hours. Asked if she felt awkward with her outfit, she says, “It’s not awkward, I just hope that the chocolate wouldn’t melt so fast.” Asked if she purposefully dieted to keep fit, she says: “No, instead I have gained a little weight because I just went to Taiwan for 3 days and 2 nights and I was constantly eating hotpot so I’ve gained almost 10 pounds.”
