WOOHOOO~~~!!! Wishing [K for TVB] Happy 8th Birthday!!
I can’t believe how quick the year has come!!
Thank you to all the supporters out there over the years!! ^__^
Yesterday I decided to head out to the city to attend Kristal Tin & Raymond Wong’s autograph session at Sydney Sussex Centre! It has been awhile since I’ve attended one of these ^^ I wasn’t too keen on last years since Moses came (for the 3-4th time?? XD) but I do like both Kristal and Raymond!! I loved Raymond in his role in Bottled Passion and Kristal, especially in her recent series Black Heart White Soul.
It was a gloomy day yesterday but luckily didn’t rain too hard. The autograph session started at 4pm, so to ensure I got an autograph I turned up at around 2.30pm haha. As expected, there was nothing set up so I went to have some food. I came back at around 3pm when they set up the banners and the signing table just outside the centre along Dixon Street. I was first in queue lol….Shortly after, a few others joined me and since we were the first ones there, the management people asked us to take a seat at the front while we waited. They then started handing out the autograph tickets (plenty to go around! I think they were still handing them out around 4pm actually)
At 4pm, Kristal Tin and Raymond Wong came out and I was sitting right in front of them~~ YAYYY! Kristal was so elegant in real life (just like on TV actually haha) and Raymond Wong looked pretty chilled and polite. I waved at Kristal and Raymond several times who waved back ^^ Kristal mentioned a lady in Sydney called out to her “Mrs Ko” (Go- Tai) . Kristal was stunned and didn’t really know how to react to her and replied “I’m Mrs To”. The lady said “You’re Ko Chit Hung’s wife” (Roger’s wife in Black Heart White Soul)..it was then Kristal had realised they called her character’s name out instead haha and then said”oh yes yes, I’m Mrs Ko”. ^__^
Kristal also joked that Raymond is now too popular so has become a snob xD It turns out that Raymond had some kind of throat infection so he couldn’t really talk. Poor thing! Hopefully he’ll get well soon!! He wanted to get well so he could sing at the TVBA Carnival. (Did anyone go to the carnival today by any chance?)
The talk with the stars was quite short, and the autograph session quickly commenced shortly after. I told Raymond I loved watching his acting and he thanked me by slighlty bowing his head. When I went to Kristal I told her I loved her acting and to add oil! XD She thanked me and told me she will!
And..I guess that’s it for this year. Very happy with my photos and autographs!!

Determined to locate the undercover officers’ whereabouts, CHEUK HOI eventually manages to contact one of them, DING SIU-KA (Charmaine Sheh), who is the lady boss of a foot spa. In order to return to her true identity, SIU-KA promises CHEUK HOI to sneak into a gang and deliberately approach SIT KA-KEUNG (Raymond Lam), an active member of an illegal betting syndicate.

Meanwhile, gang leader CHUM FOON-HEI (Benz Hui) is released from jail, and his assistant LIN HO-KAN (Sammy Sum) catches the attention of CHEUK HOI because of the way that he deals with things.

Feeling abashed when remembering his late father’s teaching, minibus driver KEI YAT-SING (Wayne Lai), who has suffered setbacks in love and business, is determined to pull himself together and help raise his girlfriend’s child. His neighbour HUNG CHI-LONG (Ronald Law) has regarded him as his own brother, hoping one day the relationship between his sister HUNG LAI-SA (Amy Fan) and YAT-SING will eventually blossom into romance so as to share each other’s burden. However, YAT-SING seems a bit reluctant. One day due to a traffic accident, YAT-SING encounters the person-in-charge of the YIU Group, YIU NGAI-YAN( Louisa So), who appreciates YAT-SING so much that she hires him as her private chauffeur. In fact, in her company, it’s easy to get entangled when it comes to workplace controversy. Apart from fighting a lone battle there, NGAI-YAN is also under close surveillance. As to her family members, only her cousin YIU CHI-HAU (Tony Hung) seems more reliable. Yet, as an indoors-type of person, he is very indecisive, keeping an ambiguous relationship with his co-worker MUI MAN-KWAN (Natalie Tong). Misconstruing that YAT-SING, out of greed, has already taken bribes, NGAI-YAN demands him to resign within seven days. Nevertheless, during this critical moment, YAT-SING manages to help NGAI-YAN out of trouble, and a subtle feeling gradually develops between them as a result. Unfortunately, both of them come to realise the difference between their social status as if they were in a real-life fairytale, finding themselves at a crossroads in life……

A robbery case subtly interweaves the fate of three strangers, a barrister in a wheelchair KO CHIT-HANG (Roger Kwok), a Hong Kong girl TAM MEI-CHING (Kristal Tin) and District Crime Unit detective CHEUNG LAP-FAN (Ron Ng). Implicated by her gangster boyfriend, MEI-CHING is charged with attempted robbery and is found guilty. Although CHIT-HANG, as the lawyer representing MEI-CHING, fails to exculpate her from the charge, the two fall in love with each other. Gradually, under CHIT-HANG’s guidance, MEI-CHING manages to turn over a new leaf after getting out of the jail. Through his investigation, LAP-FAN learns that, many years ago, he negligently shot and thereby paralyzed a civilian, who turns out to be CHIT-HANG. Instead of bearing a grudge against LAP-FAN, CHIT-HANG turns into his best friend. CHIT-HANG has been abandoned by his family ever since the accident. In order to make a living, it takes him more effort than the others to eventually stand out and become a rising star in the legal profession. Being recruited by wealthy businessmen, MA KAI-YUEN (Louis Cheung) and TO YEE-HANG (Waise Lee), CHIT-HANG often claims victory in lawsuit cases by surprise tactics, helping set his clients free. However, there is evil hiding behind his decency. The more successful CHIT-HANG becomes, the more suspicious LAP-FAN gets. All of them, including MEI-CHING, seem to be trapped in the slowly tightening grip of encirclements one after another, finding themselves on the horns of a dilemma……
