Yesterday Joey's new album autograph signing function was held in Shatin which is said to be a high-risk SARS area. Her hair that day was very special she commented that she is very happy with it :"I really like it,feels like a newborn's hair ,took one hour to set."

Although Shatin is a known high risk SARS area, the function still attracted more than 1000 fans. EEG and the organiser California Red has been taking safety measures,their employees had disinfectants ready and sprays it on the hands of the fans.Each fans must wear face mask.Joey wore face mask and sprayed disinfectant on her mic,hands and didnt shake hands,except for fans who requested for a hand shake.Manager Mani Fok said that they wanted to change the venue but seeing reports saying that the disease is under control lately so they cancelled the notion.

About news reports saying that Joey is replacing Cecilia Cheung and secretly shot a commercial for Coke.In the commercial,she showed her quite full figure.Joey said : "I know,the reports says that my figure is 'Although not a washing board,it's a microwave.' Am I mad at it?Still means that i have the real stuffs!" Will she go and correct it?Joey strongly stresses : "I will not go and make my chest look bigger nor will i eat any breast enlargement pills.I'm satisfied with my chest area.Really scared of big ones,very troublesome even when walking.I will not even do a breast enlargement commercial no matter how much money they give."

About replacing Cecilia : "Actually we are not supposed to reveal it yet,later there will be an announcement.Coca Cola is a big family,there are lot of people in it,I'm just one of the members."

Other than that,there were also reports stating that Yoyo Mung's management company is dissatisfied that in the new series Soccer Kung Fu ,the promotion is only focused on Joey alone.Joey replied that she does not feel that the promotion was on her alone : "Yoyo and I are good friends,there shouldnt be any problems."

Joey shot a lot of commercials recently and even kicked out Cecilia Cheung from the Coca Cola family by shooting a commercial for them.Earlier,Joey secretly went up to Shanghai to have photo shooting on a boat.Joey who usually covers up everything,wore a low cut singlet (?) showing off her figure.

This year,Joey is really earning a lot of money,there is the Nissin commercial, a clothing brand,Nikon cameras,Siemens mobiles,miscellanous food brands,beauty products and for a body slimming centre.In late April,Joey was discovered going to SARS affected Shanghai to shoot a Coca Cola commercial.She was on a boat with several young people,happily rowing.Reporters finds that she has quite a full figure especially when water was splashed onto her.

As the weather in Shanghai is cold,after finishing a scene,she will immediately put on a thick jacket to prevent from getting sick and get infected by SARS;before a particular scene is getting set up,she will be reading books by the side;other than that ,Coca Cola cans were seen everywhere on the filming location and exposed Joey's identiy as Coke's spokesperson.

About Joey taking over Cecilia's position as Coke's spokesperson,Coke's representative said :"We have signed Joey,that's real.But it's not to replace Cecilia as she still has an ongoing contract with us.It's just that we do not have any new commercials for her to do,Joey havent even shoot one yet!(Reporters then showed proof,showing pictures.)Hah?ohh...it's just test screening,just test screening."

 

Although Joey's song 'My Pride' is very popular,but still there are reports pointing that her popularity has dropped and that Twins and Yumiko are taking over her place.But yesterday when Joey attended a car giveaway ceremony,she says that she knows her own results and that the reports are not of the believeable sorts.She will also not give any reply to this reports.

About the rumours saying that ~H20+ didnt want Joey anymore and that she agreed to shoot another beauty centre's commercial for a very low price,she said that the truth will be revealed soon.As for how much does she gets paid,she says that as the money goes into her pocket,so she should be the one who knows the best.She is cofident that her manager will look for the best price for her.She also said that she is still the spokesperson for the Taiwan and China markets.

After the ceremony,reporters asked if she was given a free car,Joey then turned to the boss of the car company and said : "Boss,they asked if you're going to give me a car!" Who knows that the boss said yes on the spot,Joey on the other hand,says that she is already having a hard time finding parking places for her two other cars. Asked Joey if she will consider buying an new home since Twins' Charlene Choi bought one and that Gillian Chung is on the look for one,she replied: "My dream house is still my current home,it's big and there is a hill scenery,so i'm not thinking of buying one yet."

Joey accepted CRHK's interview and said that her mother is most beautiful when : "Seeing her claening and making sure that our home is in place,and being very gentle to my cats.But when it's caring for me,it's the worst times,because she had to wake me up every morning,and I would get annoyed."Joey sent a watch worth a few thousand dollars to her mother as Mother's Day gift : "She is a very thrifty woman,whatever gifts i give her,she would say that she doesnt like it and a waste fo money.But this time,she didnt complain and immediately wore it."

Wedding Bells for Eason?

Eason laughed and pretended to be a budda priest when asked by jourbalists about Wedding matters. He intends to marry his long term girlfriend this July but it could be delayed until November due to work commitments.When asked why marry this year he said why not, marriage is a happy thing.

Eason also said that when he really marrys he wouldn't say when to avoid attention so all the above was him mucking about with the reporters or journalists. He also said it wouldn't be this year that he marries and if he does it would be somewhere else like the USA, France and whatever. Basically he ain't gonna let slip to the media when he intends to marry for real.

Joey renews Nissin Contract

Yesterday (May 6)Joey had photo shooting for a new brand new commercial from Nissin.Although Nic Tse,Twins and Boy'z worked with Nissin before,but it only lasted for a year.However for Joey who has ended her 1 year contract with them recently,has now renewed her contract and became the spokesperson for the second year in a row.This proves that she is a favourite with them.Joey's manager,Mani Fok commented : "Although the market now is at an all-time low,but her pay has increased 20%." This time she is the spokesperson for the whole Asia region and will have promotion gigs in Canada.

She used 3 hours to curl her hair and said that she discovered something : "I wanted to match this hairstyle with ancient imperial costumes at first,but because this time,the commercial will have my whole head being photographed,so i thought that comtemporary clothes are much more suitable. (Wearing imperial costume,you will have to tuck in your tummy to show your chest,you know?)Because the commercial only wants my head to be photographed,so wearing it would be a waste."

Joey,this month has been earning a lot,she has 4 commercials under her belt and each one pays her a 7-digit pay,she says : "I will save up all the money for my later years. (Didnt you say that you wanted to buy a house?)I've been looking,but i havent find one that i like." Next month,Joey will start going to China to shoot the new TV series ' Soccer Kung Fu' (aka Kung Fu Soccer),Mani : "After she is done with the series and comes back to HK,she will be quarantined for 10 days.We wont let her return to the company yet.It's because we do not want SARS to spread in the company,we have even told our staffs to wear face masks in the company whenever they have went to any high-risk SARS places.The best is not to go out with colleagues to eat."

Joey is infected by her mother,her mother's thriftness,that is.Mani revealed that she was invited by Joey's mother to have dinner at Joey's home during some festival before. Mani : "Her mom invited me to celebrate a festival,when i got up there,there was only luncheon meat,roasted meat and tomato sauce beans being served.Later I found out that Joey was trying to lose weight and her mom was doing the same as well.There is nothing to eat at her home!" This week,Joey will be having her album autograph signing function in Sha Tin.California Red has specially prepared SARS prevention bags for the fans that will be queuing on that day.The content of the bag includes face mask,disinfectant tissue among others.

Chinese Sex & the City

Carina Lau Ka Ling earlier secretly began work on 2046 and
will soon start on INFERNAL AFFAIRS 3. Recently she has accepted a role in a Wong Jing film that will be similar to the American television series SEX AND THE CITY and will work with Athena Chu Yun, Shu Qi and Cecilia Cheung Pak Chi for the first time.

Although the subject will be similar to SEX AND THE CITY, Wong Jing's film will not focus on the subject of sex. The foci instead will be on the four sex symbols in this romantic comedy. Because all four are film stars of certain caliber, choosing lead actor have been an extremely cautious process. At the very least they have to have recognition. The film company is working hard on that and the film can
begin production around July.

Producer Wong Jing says the union of the four great sex symbols will be quite a gimmick but stresses that the film will not be about sex. It will be a highly confidential romantic comedy. Since the four beauties getting together will be a rare occasion, he naturally will capture their beautiful sides.

Also, due to the word of mouth that HONESTY has been getting, the film company is interested in a sequel. Wong Jing expressed that he has that idea but everything has to depend on the leads Richie Ren (Yam Yin Chai) and Cecilia Cheung Pak Chi's schedules. At the very least he will use the original cast like Chapman To Man Jat and Raymond Wong Ho Yin
because the support players in the film have created quite a chemical reaction.
