Congrats to Kenix, Frankie, & Sunny for making it to the top ten list! From the list, I have only finished watching Ten Brothers & the Green Grass of Home. I started on Heart of Greed and War & Destiny but did not have time to finish. I watched WAD solely because of Sunny but i really dislike his mustache. Despites of the fact that Sunny is the lead, Ron Ng has way much more screen time so I gave up on the series. I like Ron as a new actor, but him appearing more often than Sunny, no way! I was attracted to the star-studded cast so I gave the Drive of Life a chance but it's so boring even at the first episode. Michael Miu was really charming and funny; Jessica had a different role instead of her usual strong character; Damian gave a strong performance as always. However, that's not enough to save the whole boring & draggy plot. I watched here and there and then totally gave up on the series.
I know everybody has been saying this for countless times, but I still want to say it again: TVB is going downhill. As of right now, I only look forward to Catch Me Now and Forensic Heroes II for the sake of Idy Chan and Frankie Lam.
Mr. Leung Chiu Wai won another Golden Horse - Best Actor for his superb acting ability. I might be wrong but it looks like he did not attend the award ceremony since I couldn't find any picture of him. I guess he has won so many Best Actor awards that he gets tired of coming to the ceremony ^__^. I don't think I'll watch this movie because of "the scene." I get really uncomfortable watching my favorite artists performing such acts, so I rather avoid them. It was bad enough for me to watch him in a love scene with Leslie Cheung from Happy Together. By the way, both actors were amazing in this movie. No wonder Tony had won a Best Actor award for this role.
Kenix wins 7th place among the Top Ten TVB Actresses conducted by the I Weekly Magazine in Singapore. i'm happy, & kinda surprised, that she still wins a place in this poll after a year hiatus. Anyway, congrats to our beloved Kenix for she's still loved by many.
It's refreshing to see Ada here, because it seems like she rarely wins any popular votes. Jessica tops the chart as usual. Here is the list of the female winners:

Kenix Kwok wore an elegant black dress to take part in the press conference for her sponsors Vagheggi slimming, showing off her shoulder and beautiful figure for the media.
To mark the brand's eighth anniversary, a cake was presented for Kenix and company executives to blow out the candles. She was so excited and happy, it seemed like it was actually her birthday. Kenix has been relaxing recently as she takes her time in selecting her next project.

Kenix's birthday is coming up, actually. She does look pretty, but not as gorgeous as the event from yesterday (below). She wore 2 black dresses 2 days in a row. They're elegant & classy though.
The 5th South-East Music Chart Awards at Fuzhou's Fujian was held in grandeur on the night of 10th November 2007. Angela Zhang, Fish (Jasmine) Leung, Jeff Chang, Ah Du, Victor Wong, Penny Tai, Mayday, 183 Club, 5566, Peter Ho, Evan Yo and several more singers were present at this event.
Every celebrity in their glamorous attire strolled down the red carpet to enter the venue of the event, each with their unique makeover. Every celebrity autographed on the lucky charm (a soft toy) and also penned down their wishes.
The awards ceremony began at 7:30pm sharp, the event was segmented into five parts: the beginning, the maturing, the transformation, the gains, the touching. At each segment, after revealing the results for each award, popular singers will perform a song: Jeff Chang, Angela Zhang, Fish Leung, Penny Tai all entertained the crowd with their respective song. Mayday, 5566, 183 Club, Korean artist Lee Jung Hyun, Nam Hyun Joon, also performed dance and sang for the crowd. TVB fa dans Nadia Chan, Kenix Kwok, Sheren Tang, Michelle Ye, Monica Chan were also present to give away awards.
Ray Ma and Li Na both won Mainland's most popular male / female singers award respectively while best male / female singer awards went to Pang Lung and Jing Sha. Wu Ke Qun and Angela Zhang became Hong Kong's most popular male / female singers, while Jeff Chang and Fish Leung were the most explosive male / female singers. Vision was the year's most voted singer. The event will be re-played on 11th November at 19:35pm.
Kenix looks absolutely stunning in the pictures. i wonder if she has met up with old friend Monica Chan for a chat? it's been a long time since i last saw her with a friend.

Kenix Kwok was a guest at the Sisters Pictorial Beauty Pro awards 2007 on 15 October 2007. Other guests included Tracy Ip and Niki Chow.
Tracy received the award for the female artiste with the most perfect skin and she wore a low cut dress and about HK$600,000 worth of diamonds to receive her award. Asked how she keeps her skin looking so good, Tracy replied that she will drink a glass of warm water every morning and watch her diet. She will be taking on a spokesmodel job for a health food brand shortly, which she tried out for herself. She found that it reduced the size of her pores, so she is recommending it to her friends. Niki was one of the judges for the event and she said that she has been busy putting on weight recently, but has not been very successful and has had to resort to waking up at night to eat cup noodles.
Kenix was asked about the problems that she and husband Frankie Lam were having with their builders. She said that they have already issued a solicitor's letter to the company. She pointed out that they had wanted to handle the situation peacefully, but it was not possible in the end and their lawyer had pointed out that there had been too many mistakes. However, she added that they were not bad people and she was simply looking for fair treatment after paying for an incomplete job.
Asked if she felt that the builders were being difficult because they were celebrities, Kenix said she did not think this was the case and it was just down to their inability to complete the work. She complained about the inconvenience of living in a hotel: "We were not desperate to move out of the old house, but we never thought the work would take this long." She refuted rumours that they had to sell up to raise money for the new house, saying that the reason they did not rent out their old house was because they got a good price and did not want the hassle of dealing with tenants.
Asked about her work, Kenix said that she has a few scripts that she is reading, but has not accepted yet because she is still resting. She is enjoying the leisurely lifestyle, so she is in no rush and can wait for the right script to come along. She said that TVB have not sent her any scripts and she has not confirmed anything with ATV yet.

Some day, everyone in the United States--particularly the members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences--will recognize China's Tony Leung as one of the greatest dramatic actors of our times. He was amazing in Wong Kar-Wai's In the Mood for Love and 2046, originated Leonardo DiCaprio's role in Martin Scorsese's The Departed in the original Hong Kong movie Infernal Affairs, and who can forget his romantic role opposite Maggie Cheung in Zhang Yimou's masterful epic Hero?
It was thrilling that ComingSoon.net finally had a chance to meet and interview this amazing actor, especially to learn that he was such a pleasant and gracious person to talk to, and also that he spoke perfect English, which isn't always the case with Chinese filmmakers and actors we interview.
Leung: Mmm. Ang gave me the book when we first met, so I read the book first before I read the script. I found the story very interesting, and I was very curious how and why she spent ten years writing the short story like this, only because it has a lot of space that you can create your own stories. What really attracted me was the character.
Leung: Yeah, they wrote a lot more.
Leung: I think it's much easier to work with someone who is not experienced, because she doesn't have a specific style or way of acting, so it's much easier to work with and more interesting, because they're very unpredictable. (laughs) You never know how she'll react, so it's more interactive and it's more fun. I think what I can help her out with is to just make her relax, and make her feel more comfortable, and she's very talented. I think it'll just come out subconsciously, but you have to make her really comfortable.
Leung: But somehow you know.
CS: You are somewhat of a chameleon in your roles, in that it's not always easy to tell it's you. You definitely look very different in your role in this movie, so do you deliberately try to look different in your movies?
CS: Did you see "The Departed," Martin Scorsese's remake of "Infernal Affairs"?
Leung: Right, not much so…
there are only pictures and no news, apparently. i wonder what her upcoming plans are...

The movie, an adaptation of the book by author Edward Irving Wortis (better known by his pen name Avi), centers on the adventures of a 19th Century 13-year-old girl, who must forswear her ladylike upbringing when confronted by intrigue and danger on the high seas.
“[Dakota] is a very proper girl who is thrust into a situation where she has to take this ship and there’s a mutinous crew on board — all sorts of intricate loyalties, and storms, and gunfights,” DeVito excitedly revealed about the set-up for the upcoming flick, for which he is currently “working on storyboards,” he said. “It’s really cool stuff.”
Many daring escapades follow (which we wouldn’t dream of ruining for those not familiar with the book). DeVito says he plans on including all of them. “I’ll be pushing the envelope as usual,” he declared. “It’s a movie I’d love to take a kid to [but] it’s not just for a kid. It will probably be a PG movie - edge of your seat PG.”
Joining Dakota in her journey across the Atlantic will be an Oscar winner and a super-spy, DeVito revealed. “Morgan [Freeman] is the captain, captain Jaggery [and] Pierce Brosnan is Zachariah, the ship’s cook, surgeon, and carpeneter,” he said.
