23 June-Bags of clothes for Kelly
Yesterday night, Kelly had set off for Spain to shoot the pictures for her new album. She had expressed that her fans had given her feedback that they liked the pictures that were taken in Greece for one of her old albums. Also to beat piracy, the company has decided to increase the cost in production to have the pictures taken abroad. This time, Kelly has brought 3 baggages containing almost 50 different suits of clothes and 20 pairs of shoes. The clothes are mainly shorts and mini skirts. Kelly said that they are mostly lively looking and not intentionally sexy. Kelly's trip to Spain meets the bull-fighting season and she has hoped that she would be able to take a picture with the bull. As the crime rate in Spain is rather high, she has bought travel insurance for her baggage.
Victor was recently back from Taiwan and Kelly had taken a meal with him. Although Kelly was sad that Victor had lost much weight due to his work in Taiwan, she felt that it would make him look better on screen. Kelly added that Victor would sign a contract with Decca Records in Taiwan. As for HK, it still remains to be decided. Victor will be staying in Taiwan to film a drama serial. Even though Kelly had once acted in a Japanese drama serial, she is not keen to film another in HK. She would rather spent time holding more concerts.

On to reports saying that Faye Wong and Nic Tse are back together again,and that Faye personally bought clothes for Nic,Joey said that she has asked Nic about the authenticity of this matter : "I was being nosy .I want to play with him! (So was he happy when he answered you?) It was very stylish,did he pose?Yes,he did.I only need Nic goh goh (brother) to tell me no,I will believe.Because he is wearing a 5 year old Prada shirt tonight."
Joey stresses that, Nic seldom tell lies and brag about things : "I only know one 'Bragging King'(Eason),and not 'Bragging Fung'.As long as Nic is happy,it's enough." Joey revealed that Nic sent her a necklace for her birthday.She said that she will give the same present to Nic on his birthday.Asked about Cecilia who was reported to have swore while filming in Sheung Wan,Joey : "Those kind of people (reporters) has no morale,we artistes are in the public eye,they are not,so whatever they say,they dont need to take responsibility for it.Therefore there's no need to care about them.I'm lucky that I've never gotten this kind of reports. It's maybe because I seldom go out."
