Moses Chan held a talk session in Hong Kong, where he shared more about his experiences as an entrepreneur. The actor launched his own brand of coffee a few years ago and recently opened a cafe.
According to Moses, business has been good so far, and they are attracting a lot more customers than expected. “Sometimes it gets a little overcrowded, but that’s a happy problem!” he grinned. Encouraged by the outcome, the 48-year-old has plans to turn his brand into a chain, but will take things one step at a time.
Despite his success, Moses was candid about facing setbacks and frustrations quite often as well. “In business, not every idea and concept will work out, there will be trial and error,” he said. “But I never once thought of giving up, whether it comes to my coffee business or acting!”
Moses’s personal life soon became a topic of interest when a reporter remarked that his daughter Camilla is “vain”, referring to a photo that Moses’s wife, actress Aimee Chan, had shared of the three-year-old posing expertly with one of her mum’s designer bags.
Laughing, he said there’s nothing they can do about it because it’s just a part of the little girl’s personality. “Whenever my wife and I dress up a little more stylishly than usual, she will look at us in awe and go, ‘Wow.’ She has also started to choose her own outfits.”
Now that filming for his latest TV series has wrapped up, Moses has been able to dedicate more time to his “many babies” (his business, his wife, and their three children). He shared that he usually teaches his children how to read and write, and often brings them out to exercise. When asked if he plans to teach them how to make coffee, he said, “Wait until they’re older - I don’t want them to break my equipment!”
The doting husband also revealed that he is in the midst of planning his annual “honeymoon” trip with Aimee, but wishes to keep the location a secret.
Chen Bolin believed to be dating after "really good friend" reportedly spends the night at his place
After starring alongside each other in the 2012 movie, Machi Action, Taiwanese actor Chen Bolin seems to have struck up a close friendship with Taiwanese singer Chen Tingxuan, who’s a member of the girl group, Popu Lady.
Bolin and Tingxuan have been spotted spending time together numerous times, with Tingxuan photographed going in and out of Bolin’s apartment over the years. However, the two of them have always denied any dating rumours, claming that they are just “really good friends”.
Earlier this month, Bolin was spotted getting into a taxi with Tingxuan. The taxi dropped them off at Bolin’s apartment in the Songshan District in Taipei. Later in the evening, Bolin and Tingxuan then headed out again, this time with Bolin’s mother and younger sister. The quartet then made their way to a Japanese barbeque restaurant for dinner.
After the meal, Bolin was seen heading over to the cashier alone to settle the bill, before leaving with the group. According to eyewitnesses who had spotted the celebrities, Tingxuan seemed to be very comfortable with Bolin’s mother and younger sister.
While waiting to cross the road at a traffic junction, Bolin also took out his phone for a couple of wefies with his rumoured beau and his family. After finishing up their shopping with Bolin’s family, Tingxuan then headed back to Bolin’s apartment with the actor. As the singer was not seen exiting the apartment in the wee hours of the night, it is suspected that she had spent the night there.
At a recent press event, singer-actor Nicholas Tse surprised everyone when he shared that he has not spoken to his younger sister, actress Jennifer Tse, in a year.
In June this year, Jennifer posted on her social media accounts that her daughter had just celebrated her 100th day since her birth. Jennifer’s post was a shot out of the blue for the public, as the 37-year-old had kept the news of her pregnancy a secret, choosing to step out of the spotlight during her pregnancy. To date, Jennifer has not revealed the identity of her baby daddy.
As it has been reported that Jennifer, who is currently residing in the United States, will be returning to Hong Kong soon, reporters asked Nicholas if he will be whipping up a feast to welcome his sister home.
However, Nicholas replied that he “hasn’t contacted or spoken to" Jennifer in a year, adding that he might not be in Hong Kong when she returns, and that he’s not sure when Jennifer will return either.
The 39-year-old also shared that he has no idea what his baby niece looks like. “I only knew what she looked like after reading the newspapers. When asked if he will congratulate his sister on the birth of her daughter, he replied with a smile, “(I) wish her good fortune. Good luck!”
Later, Nicholas made sure to add that his lack of contact with Jennifer did not mean that they were on bad terms.
“If she needs me, I’ll be sure to be there for her,” he vowed.
Taiwanese rock band Mayday made headlines when they announced seven concerts in Shanghai. Their shows, which will be held at the Hongkou Football Stadium, can accommodate up to 33,000 guests per day.
With shows on October 25, 26, 27, 31, along with November 1, 2 and 3, many were curious to know if they would be inviting some of their famous friends to add even more star power to the gigs.
On October 14, a rumoured guest list was leaked on Weibo, immediately causing much excitement as it includes many of the top names in the industry. Among those mentioned are Jay Chou, Jolin Tsai, Wang Leehom, JJ Lin, Stefanie Sun, Angela Zhang and TFBOYS’ Jackson.
This list saw many netizens remarking that it was unsurprising for Mayday, who have established themselves as one of the biggest names in music, to be able to invite such remarkable guests to their show.
“I’m sure the guests are busy too. For them to make time to attend Mayday’s show is amazing in itself. Now I’m even more excited to attend!” one wrote.
However, this list has not been verified, and with a little under two weeks to go to the first show, fans are waiting with bated breath to see if these artistes will appear at the concerts.
Causing even more excitement was the possibility that Jay Chou’s latest song, ‘Won’t Cry’, which features Mayday’s frontman, Ashin, might be performed at the concert. “If they go on the day that I’m not there, I think I’ll regret it for life,” one netizen lamented, while another added, “You’re lucky, because I don’t have tickets. You have a one in seven chance to hear them perform it live, while my chances are absolutely zero.”
Actress Yang Mi just can’t seem to catch a break. The 33-year-old recently became a celebrity judge for the latest season of the reality show, China’s Got Talent.
Pictures of the celebrity judges during filming for an upcoming episode were also released. However, in the pictures, Yang Mi’s sparkly black mesh earrings caught the eye of netizens, who soon realised that the actress seemed to be continuously removing and re-wearing her earrings.
That simple action incurred the ire of netizens, many of whom criticised her “unseemly and distracting” actions of constantly fidgeting with her earrings. As a result, Yang Mi’s name quickly rose up the rank of Weibo’s trending searches, inviting even more comments. Some also commented that the earrings were ugly and too ostentatious.
However, a number of the actress’s fans who attended the filming session, have since come forward to speak up on her behalf. Replying to comments criticising Yang Mi, they shared that the actress had only removed her earrings because they were too heavy.
They explained that she took them off when they weren’t filming, and put them on once filming resumed. This would explain why Yang Mi wasn’t wearing the earrings in one picture.
A number of fans also mentioned Yang Mi’s work studio in their posts, requesting for the studio to be careful in choosing accessories that are comfortable to wear for extended periods in the future.
Actress-host Barbie Hsu and her businessman husband Wang Xiaofei tied the knot in 2010, barely a month after their first date. Four years later, they welcomed their first child, a girl named Wang Xiyue. In 2016, Barbie gave birth to a son, Wang Xilin.
After tying the knot, Barbie took a step back from her career in the spotlight, choosing to focus on her family instead. In recent years, while she has not filmed any drama series or movies, the actress-host has appeared on a number of variety and reality shows. The most recent show she appeared on, titled, We Are Real Friends, featured the 42-year-old as well as her younger sister, host Dee Hsu, and their good friends, singer Mavis Fan and actress Aya Liu.
However, in a late-night post on October 15, Barbie’s husband, Xiaofei, reposted a post on Weibo of Barbie on the red carpet in 2006. In his caption, Xiaofei wrote, “Why is it that I somehow feel as if I’ve impeded my wife(’s career). If it wasn't for me, she’ll definitely have achieved even better things.”
The businessman’s unexpectedly emotional post caught many fans by surprise, a number of which rushed to comfort him, with a fan writing, “(We should) have different achievements during the various stages of our life, having a loving family is also an achievement.”
Soon after, Xiaofei uploaded a picture of him in his younger days, writing, “I was pretty handsome back then too,” showing that he was feeling much better.
He also uploaded a picture of him together with Barbie, feeding each other. However, his two posts were later deleted, leaving only his repost of Barbie’s pictures. Due to the timing of the posts, as well as his uncharacteristically emotional captions, netizens have speculated that the businessman might have been drunk when he uploaded the posts last night.

On October 14, Korean idol-actress Sulli was found dead in her apartment, in an apparent suicide.
While police investigations are still ongoing, many have speculated that the 25-year-old’s death might have been caused by the intense media scrutiny she was under, along with the constant hate comments that she received from the public.
After her departure from the idol group f(x) in 2015, the idol-actress was the subject of a number of negative reports painting her in a bad light. Under the guise of anonymity, malicious comments were also left on these articles by netizens, criticising her behaviour and social media posts.
Last night, singer-actor Aaron Yan uploaded a lengthy post on his social media accounts, seemingly addressing Sulli’s passing. In his post, he implored the public to pay more heed to their words online, and put an end to cyber-bullying.
“‘What a pity’, ‘Why would she choose this way out’, ‘She was a goddess to me’. Please, can everyone stop addressing this issue so superficially? There’s so much that we should take a closer look at here,” he wrote in his post.
The 33-year-old added that humans are just like any other animal in the world, born with an innate survival instinct.
“The amount of pain, the amount of unbearable stress (that must have accumulated) to drive a person to choose to give up on their survival instinct, this is what we have to investigate. Of date, how many suicides has cyberbullying caused? How many times did we have a change of heart, and sympathise with someone we originally hated or were attacking online, only because we experienced the pain of losing someone dear?” he questioned.
Bringing up popular shows like Black Mirror, 13 Reasons Why and The World Between Us, Aaron noted that all three shows aim to show the public that "these hurtful words left on the internet are no different from the knives, guns, swords and poisons around us. (These shows are) warning us again and again not to belittle the destructive power of internet comments.”
“However, these warnings have all fallen on deaf ears,” Aaron continued. “Instead, people use ‘freedom of speech’ to justify their comments. Freedom of speech has never included defamation, rumour-spreading and lies. Just like how the people of the past went on witch hunts, these people are excited by the thrill of the hunt. If someone doesn’t fit their fancy, they’ll scold and hit their victim mercilessly. They don’t care about what’s right or wrong at all, nor do they stop to consider if they were to be in their victim’s shoes, would they be able to bear such hurt?”
He then ended his post by imploring everyone to think twice before posting comments online.
“Before you post and hurl abuse at others online, please think, if this is what we want our world to be? Or does everyone think that ‘this is the way things are already’, and that they can’t change anything, so it’s better to just let it be? Change is a long and arduous process, but if we aren’t even willing to take the very first step, there’ll be no change at all. Please, let’s give ourselves, and give the world some hope. Don’t think about what other people are doing, change starts from within. If you still think that my words are nonsense, it’s alright. But, I really can’t stand the comments going ‘Why did they choose this way (out)’ whenever someone cannot take (the abuse) any longer, and chooses to end their own life!”
