It’s flu season once again, and it looks like our favourite celebrities aren’t spared from it either. Over in Hong Kong, the flu bug has been making its rounds through the entertainment circuit, with actress Kristal Tin falling prey to it.
On Monday (January 21), the actress posted a picture of a medical certificate, as well as an array of medicine from the doctors’, sharing that she was ordered to stop work and rest for a day.
She then shared through a phone interview with the media that the symptoms of her flu had started appearing two days before, when she woke up with a scratchy throat. However, she did not think much of it, and left the house for work after consuming some vitamins. She then started filming for her drama, along with actors Johnson Lee and Iris Lam. But, by the time they started on the second scene, Kristal felt as if her whole body was sore. It was only when she checked her temperature that she realised that she was actually running a high fever.
Thus, she immediately requested to be excused from filming for the day, to rest at home. However, her fever did not subside overnight, even with the help of store-bought medicine. Instead, she spread her illness to her husband, Hong Kong actor Chapman To.
In the morning, the couple headed off to visit the doctor together and they were both officially diagnosed with the flu. After receiving an injection and medicine, their fever soon subsided, although they still have to rest for a day to recover their strength.
Reports that veteran Hong Kong actor Eric Tsang was involved in a car crash in Hokkaido last Christmas first surfaced on December 28 last year. At that time, it was initially reported that he had to undergo a breathalyser test after the crash, leading to speculations that he had been drink-driving.
However, the reports were soon found to be false. The occupants of the other car were Hong Kong police director of crime and security, Li Chi Hang, and his family, with Chi Hang injuring his cervical vertebrae.
Recently, Eric made an appearance at a restaurant opening with his daughter, Hong Kong singer Bowie Tsang, where he shared more about his "brush with death".
Eric revealed that the accident was the “closest" he had come to experiencing death, saying, “When the crash occurred, there was absolutely no time to think. Before I knew it, the whole world turned black. When I opened my eyes, all I could see was snow around me. The car did not look like a car at all: its front tire had exploded, and I had scratches everywhere. The luggage was smashed to pieces, and although the car was mostly intact, (the force of the impact) caused all the boxes inside to burst. All the snacks and sweet treats I bought all flew out.”
At that time, both the on-site paramedics and doctors at the hospital reported that Eric had not suffered any injuries. However, the next day, the 65-year-old received an urgent call from the hospital, informing him that his rib had actually cracked. As there was no treatment available for his cracked rib, all Eric could do was to rest in order for the wound to heal faster.
Even now, Eric’s ribs still hurt when he breathes in deeply or stretches. But, as he’s currently in the midst of filming for a drama, he has no choice but to clench his teeth and continue working. Luckily, the production team of the drama has been very understanding, and changed the script to make it less strenuous for him.
With a laugh, the actor also added that the first thing he said to his friends when he returned to Hong Kong was, “You’re lucky that you’re not meeting me in a funeral hall,” poking fun at the situation.
Eliza Sam and Carlos Chan attended an event celebrating the beginning of the Spring Festival in Hong Kong on January 22.
Part of the event included having them change the diapers of a baby doll, a seemingly simple activity that seemed to confuse them. Carlos admitted that he has absolutely no experience taking care of a baby, while Eliza, who is six months pregnant with her first child, said that this is definitely a new skill she needs to pick up.
"Leanne Li's baby daughter is adorable," she gushed. "If I have the chance to go and help take care of her, then perhaps I will be able to get some practice."
The actress then admitted that she has not thought about whether she wants to give birth in Hong Kong, where she is currently based, or in Canada, where she herself was born. "It's an urgent decision I have to make soon, but the most important thing is to have a safe and smooth-sailing delivery," she said, adding that she has already made up her mind to have a natural birth as she is afraid of knives.
When asked about the reports that he had travelled to Japan with rumoured girlfriend Jeannie Chan in December last year, Carlos declined to answer, and said that he is busy focusing on his career at the moment, and will let nature take its course when it comes to love.

Singapore’s first Purple Tea beverage is here. The Purple Tea not only contains many health benefits but is also low in sugar content. Many of the health properties exceed that of green tea. Let’s find out what is Purple Tea and why drink Purple Tea.
Cultivated in Kenya, Purple Tea is a crossbred variety of the common tea leaf, Camellia Sinensis, from which black, green & white teas are derived. They are not genetically modified plant and is completely natural.
Artiste Lawrence Hiew enjoys drinking the Purple Tea. He explained that the Purple Tea has a pleasant aroma, along with stronger and sweet flavour to provide a quenching element. “It’s very refreshing and definitely very healthy. Just look at the properties it contains- super antioxidants and anthocyanins can help fight cancer and reduce risks of cardiovascular diseases and hypertension.”
This unique cultivar yields beautiful, vibrant purple leaves. The leaves are purple because they contain super anti-oxidants called anthocyanins. These are the same anti-oxidants found in other purple plants like blueberries, Acai & pomegranates.
Purple Tea also contains Polyphenols which are chemicals found in foods that help to prevent the damage of free radicals in the body. All these health benefits exceed that of green tea.
Danielle Gan also shared the beauty benefits from drinking Purple Tea. “Purple Tea is a slimming tea. Drinking Purple Tea can help in weight loss. Most importantly, it has anti-ageing properties as well. It has everything a woman needs to keep in good shape!”
Purple Power, Purple Tea.

Bruneian actor Wu Chun’s short stint on the popular reality show, Where Are We Going, Dad? 5, gained a large number of fans for the actor and his two kids, 7-year-old Neinei and 4-year-old Max. However, after the season ended its run, Wu Chun withdrew his kids from the spotlight.
Last Saturday (January 19), the actor uploaded a few snaps of Max, sharing that the 4-year-old had requested for a new hairstyle. In the pictures, Max is seen showing off his doe eyes and forehead, with his fringe swept to one side. To amp up the cuteness, a number of stickers and roses were added to the pictures as well, with text bubbles asking, “Am I cute?” and “Do you want to kiss me?”
Sharing that Max had specially requested to have the same hairstyle as him, Wu Chun added that Max later declared that he was Wu Chun, to the actor’s amusement.
Delighted to see Max once again, the actor’s fans left comments, asking if the father-of-two would really allow fans to kiss Max, to which Wu Chun replied, “(You can) kiss Max, but not Neinei.”
Fans also pointed out that Max really does resemble Wu Chun, nicknaming Max a “mini Wu Chun”.
Taiwanese actresses Ruby Lin and Kelly Lin, as well as Delia Tseng, wife of Taiwanese tycoon Terry Gou, met for a girls' night out recently, tucking into a sumptuous meal at a restaurant.
Kelly was the first to upload pictures from their gathering, sharing a picture of her with Ruby on her Facebook, with wide smiles on their faces, as well as a number of group shots with Delia. However, what caught the attention of netizens were not the actresses themselves, but the designer handbags that they were carrying. The appearance of the luxury handbags incited much discussion, with netizens speculating about the brands and prices of the bags.
Later, Kelly uploaded a video from the same gathering, sharing that the trio’s husbands were present as well, with Kelly’s Chinese-American businessman husband, Chris Young, appearing first. With a smile on his face, Chris then gestured towards Wallace, who was sitting in a corner. Wallace then turned to the camera and posed for it, looking relaxed.
Netizens then pointed out that both Wallace and Ruby had opted for similar ‘peace signs’ in the video, laughing that the couple is “truly a match made in heaven”.
Julian Cheung and Nancy Sit attended an appreciation awards ceremony at an identity card renewal centre in Hong Kong on January 21. The two actors previously worked together in the film Return of the Cuckoo, and Julian praised Nancy as "the best mother figure".
In order to prepare herself for the shooting of her new film, Julian's wife Anita Yuen spent two months trying to lose weight, and has lost about 15 to 20 pounds (about 6.8 to 9 kilograms) so far.
When asked if this gives him pressure to lose weight as well, Julian laughed and said that it does not. "If I were required to lose weight for a role, I would be able to do it as well," he said.
Julian then revealed plans to travel to Hokkaido, Japan with his family during the Lunar New Year period. "This will be my first time skiing, so I've been doing a lot of research and preparation," he said. "I hope we will all have a lot of fun that week."

Good friends and actors Kai Ko and Jaycee Chan, who were arrested and charged for using marijuana in China back in 2014, were recently spotted living it up in Seoul, South Korea.
The pair were said to have been clubbing at Burning Sun, which is reportedly owned by BIGBANG’s Seungri, and were surrounded by beautiful girls and having a good time. While Jaycee wore a cap, Kai’s face was clearly visible as he made no effort to mask his identity. In another video, Kai was seen smoking while speaking to those around him.
Netizens have been quick to debate on the pair’s nightlife-loving ways, with some pointing out that it’s not a crime for two adults to be hitting up the clubs and drinking at their age. However, there were others that pointed out that it would be easy for the two of them to make a wrong judgement call while intoxicated, or could accidentally be slipped weed while they let their guard down when having a good time.
Jaycee was convicted of drug use and sentenced to six months in prison in Beijing in 2015, while Kai was detained for two weeks and subsequently deported.
