A Pleasant Surprise =)

Today I received an air mail post all the way from Malaysia~ from Summer!! (K for TVB Visitor)

Just a short message to: Summer~ Thank you for your Chinese New Year card , Raymond Lam Calender Poster, and the two pages of an article!! ^^ The calender poster looks awesome on my wall xD I love it! Thank you!! I got really excited when I received it, it lightened up my day =)

I thought I’d share them with you all ^^:

Raymond Lam Calender 2008

There were some sections of the article I felt like translating =) I’m not sure if its already translated somewhere else on the net but here is my own contribution! Please credit back if reposted^^ If I’ve translated something wrong, please correct me.

The article was released for Xmas 2007, thus the article is about Christmas!

Raymond Lam’s Christmas Feel

What Christmas present would you like to receive the most this year?

Actually I’m quite satisfied, especially with this year performance and award wise. There’s nothing particular that I want. My birthday is in December, so every year I would receive a lot of presents in December. This year it falls on the same day as “Foon Lok Moon Dong Wah”, so I’ve told my friends beforehand that, if they want to buy me a present, they might as well donate it to charity, it would be more meaningful.

Every year before Christmas, I’d actually go shopping. Every time I’d buy two big bags, and hand them out to my friends and family at the party, or treat it like drawing out presents. Beforehand, I’ve already given my mum a Christmas present, it’s a handbag. I know she wanted to buy a handbag, but the one I bought her wasn’t the one she wanted, but one that I chose with my own fashion sense. At first she didn’t really accept it, facing the mirror, moving left and right, but after dad complimented that it looked good, and so did her friends, she was very happy with it. As for dad’s present, I haven’t thought about it yet, because I still can’t seem to figure what thing he is missing.

What Christmas wish do you have this year?

Hm….I hope that I can quickly start dating, but its really hard finding the right person. Outsiders might think that it looks easy for us to meet people, but I, myself feel that it’s quite hard.

(Are there any requirements you are looking for?)

I don’t know myself either…hmm..it must a girl! haha! Actually, we must look good together appearance wise, and have compatible personalities. It would be best if she appears to have lots of different personalities, because I’m like that too: sometimes active, sometimes quiet, lots of changing personalities.

Likes hiding at home

To Raymond, earning money is for self certainty, to use for life’s pleasure: “My living standards isn’t high, you should have known from seeing that I haven’t changed my car in six years! I just like to buy toys, watch cartoons, listen to music, play games and read comics. I used to like reading books, but I’ve been reading less, too tired, no concentration, and I’ve got a lot of hobbies, how much money do I use!” Raymond says that he usually wouldn’t buy many clothes, he’ll only buy nice clothes for work: “Usually if there’s nothing to do, I won’t leave the house. After waking up I won’t even comb my hair, I won’ t shave, and I run around the house in my slippers. I feel that  its most relaxing when I’m staying at home ‘healing‘.” Raymond hasn’t changed his car in a long time, but back then when he was a newcomer, he drove a $500,000HK or so SLK racing car. At that time, he expressed that the car is a birthday present from his parents, and it was stable and safe.

Really wants to date

From acting to becoming a singer, releasing his first album, Raymond was only able to see his family once a month. Now that he’s a singer, timing seems to have settled and he is thinking about dating. He said: “Every time I tell people, I really want to be in a relationship, but being in this profession it’s so busy there just isn’t time. It’s really hard to start, but I can’t just casually find anyone. We, in this profession do not have the time to slowly understand someone, even if you do start dating, it’s hard to manage it.” When asked when was the last time he had a day off, he thought and thought, and replied “I can’ t answer you! Really can’t figure it out
