TVB Generation Closing Out 2006: 2006 TVB Calendar Final Report
To view the 2005 Final Report: CLICK HERE. This was back when I was fairly new at blogging with only about 2 months of experience on my hand so you might see a slight change in my blogging. Can't believe its almost 2007 already. I wont actually start the Final Report until tomorrow with January-February but today I round up the Cover Page with notable artistes on the front.
The 2006 TVB Calendar Cover Page: Note that I will only highlight the notable artistes on the cover page, if I highlight all of them I'll still be here on this post until 2007.
Back Row: Eric Lee-Had a very significant role in Vagabond Vilgilante, sad to say it was ware house. He mostly played villainess roles this year, overall no big jumps in his career. Nancy Wu-Gained alot of publicity because of her relationship with Deep Ng (Broken up now). Her career is progressing at a faster paste now with a couple of series where she had significant roles airing soon in 2007.
Second Row: Devily Leung-Her career is moving so slow, the only series she had this year was Maiden's Vow which she had small role in the 70's era. Yoyo Chan-She was nowhere this year, out of the three sisters from Sunshine Heartbeat (Her, Charmaine Li, & Vivien Yeo) she has the least sucess. Heidi Chu did some acting here and there, but she mostly worked on Radio Show. Angel Sung is a very successful reporter for TVB for the Ent. Scoop Show. Ngo Kanin got started getting bigger roles this year & had alot of hosting jobs so he is progressing at a good paste. Charmaine Li showed alot of improvements in her acting so she is starting to become more well recieved among TVB fans.
MHK 2005: Sharon Luk-Mostly hosting jobs if not all, if you only watch TVB series and not variety report shows you most likely won't know her that well. Tracy Ip was linked romanticly this year with Don Li, she signed a one year contract TVB, but she also express that would like to finish her education or pursue her modeling career soon. Carrie Lam stood high and mighty on her acting career, despite many thinking she would not act but rather model because of height she still pursued acting with a role in Heart of Greed as one of the "four beauties" in the series.

>> TVB-G Showdown: Michelle Reis Vs. Sonjia Kwok <<
Why Michelle Reis Vs. Sonjia Kwok?: Wondering why I put Michelle Reis (Lei Ka Yan) and Sonjia Kwok (Kwok Sin Ley) in a head to head battle? Well, if you're pageant fan then you have would catched it right away. These ladies were the only former Miss Hong Kong who were able to win the Miss Chinese International pageant.
Hong Kong has only won twice, and its been about six years since Hong Kong won the last title. Every year now, I'm wondering "Is this year's MHK is pretty enough to take the title again?". I kinda think Aimee Chan wont be able to, because of her age and many other factors but we'll wait and see. Right now, Michelle Reis still holds the title of the Most Beautiful Miss Hong Kong, will Sonjia fill her shoes? Or will a younger MHK take over it in the future?
The Body: Michelle Reis stands at 5'7 with a body of supermodel, many fashion designers like Christian Dior sponsor her to represent them. Sonjia Kwok is about 168 which is about 5'6, she is quite fit but her body isn't quite celebrated as Michelle so Round 1 goes to Michelle.
The Education: Michelle went to Maryknoll Convent College which is good and small college. But Sonjia graduated from Vancouver University majoring in Physicology & Economics. Vancouver University is bigger is more well known, and I'm sure its alot more accredited. Round 2 goes to Sonjia.
The Love History: Well, lets just say both Michelle and Sonjia had their share of rumours with Billionaires in Hong Kong. Sonjia was rumoured earlier this year to be dating Chan Kwok Keung. Michelle as a matter of fact is currently dating a Billionaire. Both of them were linked with leading males in TVB's "the Breaking Point. Michelle was linked with Leon Lai, while Sonjia dated Deric Wan for two years which actually brought her career down. Round 3 goes to Michelle for scandalous love life.
The Age: Michelle turned 36 this year, while Sonjia turned 32. For reason in live pictures outside of the studios, Sonjia looks older than she really is. But the fact is Sonjia is younger so Round 4 goes to Sonjia.
The Beauty: This one is totally based on my opinion, if you guys feel different about it then consider who ever you picked the winner. I think honestly, Michelle Reis is prettier, she looks amazing for age, like she is a decade younger than she really is. Both ladies are mixed, Michelle is half Portuguese, and Sonjia is a quarter British. Michelle looks so much more exotic with very unique look. Plus, she still holds the title of the Most Beautiful Miss Hong Kong almost 18 years after she won MHK. So I picked Michelle to win Round 5.
In This Battle Michelle wins 3-2. Once again its a matter of opinions.

You guys dont have to worry, I know there are alot more of these artistes who speak english like Flora, Moses, Bernice, Linda, Selena,... but these were the only ones I have videos of so far. If you other videos would like to share with everyone just leave a message.
Angela Tong, Kate Tsui, & Sonjia Kwok Speaking English: This clip is from Ent Scoop last month when The Village People were visiting Hong Kong. They were interviewed by Angela, Kate, & Sonjia.
Angela Tong's English is excellent. I read she grew up overseas, and Cantonese is actually her weaker language. She is definitely fluent.
Kate's English is a little weird. It's a bit choppy, and thick at times like when she pronounce fascinating. I think she isnt fluent, because grammaticly she kinda speaks broken English.
Sonjia's English is quite good actually, if I'm not mistaken she is from overseas also. Her English
is grammaticly correct and I have to say alot better than Kate even though Kate is the one known for English speaking skills.
Kevin Cheng Speaking English: This clip was uploaded by Kate6002. Its from his movie Boys in 1996 where he was lead along with Edmond Leung & Fennie Yeun, yes he's not a acting newcomer like everyone thinks. Kevin was born in California and has a Bachelor in Civil Engineering. He was born before the time of the Civil Rights Movement so I wonder how his life experiences living in the USA at that time were.

Things I Miss
|Nothing special, just a little & short piece that I wrote really quickly with random stuff in my head. It might or might not keep you guys entertain regarding about what I miss. If you're bored feel free to read.|
I Miss... Pictures of Kevin or Niki alone. Seriously, they have been at almost every event together. When I see a picture of Niki alone, I start asking myself "Where's Kevin? Something must be seriously wrong.", vicesa versa. I saw a picture of Kevin with Amanda S. & Ankie Bui, and I just thought to myself its strange to see him without Niki and with other girls...
I Miss... Series Where Gigi Lai & Bowie Lam Aren't In It Together. They have been in so many series together, paired up and not paired up. Lets see there's WAB, HH3, DOP, ... And now its been announce they work together again in Jewel's Splendor. I could understand if they had awsome chemistry like LJ, but they're just lacking that "it" factor. I can think of like 5 actors Gigi would have better onscreen chemistry with, I hope they're not paired up again in JS.
I Miss... Series Without Stretch Marks. Some TVB series these days have the skin texture of 8 month pregnant belly. Why cant they keep a good series in the 20 episodes range when it is fitting. Don't stretch it out to make a pretty boring 30-40 episode series. *COUGH*LWOLAP*UNCOUGH*. Hopefully the 60 & 80 episodes series will not have that effect.
I Miss... Wuxia Series. There have been a lack of them in the past few years. Considerably less than the 90's. Face To Fate was a really good series I thought shouldn't have been warehoused. I think its all because LWOLAP got really bad ratings so TVB got the impression that people don't like Wuxia type series anymore so they haven't aired any in a while. They mostly only air Romantic Comedies now.
I Miss... The Days When I Thought TVB Artistes Were Poor. There was a time when I thought some of the artistes were so dead broke. Now all of them seem extremely rich. Ron, Bosco, Sonjia, Charmaine, all talking about how they have to pay for 6-7 figure income tax. Bernice talking about buying real estate to invest in. Charmaine shopping for a Porsche. Raymond driving around in a Benz. Kenix & Frankie investing in luxury homes. I love the articles where they casually slip in they made 5-6 figure sum for attending a 2-3 promotional event. My gosh, how much money do they make a year.

: : : TVB-G Superhero Satire Parody PART II: : :
Magneto ==> Charmaine Sheh: Magneto the Magnet from the X-Men series is known for his power to attract. Magneto is able to attract metal and maneuver it to his control. Charmaine Sheh also has the power to attract. She is attracting so many fans to her fan base at such an alarming rate. Her fan base is one the fastest growing and one of the biggest when it comes to TVB artistes. Jessica Hsaun has the biggest fan base when it comes to fan dans but Charmaine is now stiff competition. She has attracted a huge fan base as big as Jessica's in a shorter time span, with countless websites, forums, BBS, blogs, and clubs dedicated to her giving her lifts when it comes time to vote.
Jean Grey/Phoenix ==> Kevin Cheng: Jean Grey is the famous mind controller and reader who is linked with Cyclops & Wolverine. As the story tells she is embodied and transformed into Phoenix. Kevin Cheng is a mind reader is his own rights. He is almost infamous now for being able to know what is on the TVB executives mind, and becoming their favorite and "TVB's Son". Some might say the once Underated actor is now Overated because of good ratings, somewhat like Jean becoming Phoenix.
Mystique ==> Sheren Tang: Mystique, another character from the X-Men saga. Mystique has the mystic power to transform into anyone. Sheren also has the mystic power to transform into anyone, acting wise that is. I'm just blown away by her acting. Its so superior and truly shows that she has so much experience that she can drown me in it. She always perfects the character that she sets out to potray and embodies the character. The poster of La femme Desperado has Melissa in the center of the focal point, but it doesn't mean Sheren isn't lead, because as we all saw she stole the show with her potrayal of Hilda. And there's no need for me to mention Yu Fei.
Storm ==> Virginia Lok: Storm is my favorite character from the X-Men series, she is often refered to as the Weather Witch because of her abilities to control the weather. Virginia Lok A.K.A. Lok Yi Ling is a TVB executive who basicly controls the weather at TVB. If she wants wind she'll get wind, if she want rain she'll get rain. For a person who has never appeared in any TVB series she has become as almost as famous the artistes themself.

Happy Birthday Leila Tong !!!

So much gossips flying around the last couple couple of days. Particularly the list of gay celebrities that was release on Walter hau's blog. Apparently it wasn't him because someone hacked into his blog but there's still alot specualtion flying around. Another is the Sammul Chan being betrayed by one of the Olympic Six. There have alot of discussion about, and when I read at Em's Blog how juicy its getting so I had to do a post about it.
The Walter Hau Blog Scandal:
Cinple has a very informative dicussion going on about about it. Click Here: http://forums.cinple.net/newtvb/index.cgi?read=258920. Go through all the posts for full details. YY, has provided us alot information on the scandal.
Here Are The Names I'm Familiar With That YY Mention that were allegedly reported:
* Bowie Lam (introduced by mutual friend, Gigi Lai)
* Sammul Chan (had one-month relationship with)
* Derek Lee Ho Lam (open secret)
* Carlo Ng (I've always suspected that, despite his married status)
* Chun Wong (Chow Bat Tung in LOCH); Fei Tin's father in TGWL (new to me)
* King Sir (rumoured before)
* Kwong Wah - Bi-sexual (new to me)
* Mark Kwok (open secret)
*The captions in parentheses are of YY not me.
My Commentary: Of the allegedly gay on the list. I don't think Bowie Lam is, but what do I know. Sammul Chan has always been rumored to be gay, I don't know why though, Lai Lok Yi is alot more feminine than him. Derek Lee, I'm not sure about. Carlo Ng is married, but I thought he was gay before because of the way he dress. I don't even want to think about Chun Wong & King Sir, that's so weird. Kwong-Wah, never though he was bi-sexual or gay. Mark Kwok, didn't think he was gay either. Ricky Chan (From Central Affairs II), he didn't seem gay at all to me.
Besides those, recently Steven ma have been rumored to be gay. Manila @ Cinple also mention in the post that Wong Hei was caught having a guy in his house couple months ago. But lets turn our attention to Walter Hau. For those who don't know, he is male model in Hong Kong. I actually knew who he was, I saw news about him a long time ago about him & Carmen Choi. I thought he was the ugliest male model in Hong Kong. Here are pictures of him:
The Sammul Chan Betrayal Scandal:
Basicly Sammul came out and said of the Olympic Six betrayed him by bad mouthing to producers and crew members but he didn't say who. Lai Lok Yi, Bosco Wong, Ron Ng, Raymond Lam, and Kenneth Ma were questioned about it. The Apple Daily basicly hinted it was Kenneth by saying "Ma Yi Gwok" (Kenneth's chinese name is Ma Gwok Ming). CLICK HERE to read all about what happen.
My Commentary: Something about this smells fishy. Ron, Raymond, and Bosco had bigger success than Sammul from the gecko, so I don't see why they would attack Sammul. So that's just leaves Lai Lok Yi and Kenneth in my opinion. I still don't believe any of them did it really. The fingers are being pointed Kenneth, but the guy seems so ginuwine. Its like War & Beauty of the Olympic Stars.
I kinda think Sammul is making all of this up for attention. There's alot of gay rumors flying around about him, so I think he might of just made this up as a distraction to draw the attention away from the gay rumors. But only Sammul really knows so I can't say much about it really. After this, I dont see him ever coming back for TVB ever again.
