Yesterday, Nancy Wu (胡定欣), Wayne Lai (黎耀祥), Raymond Cho (曹永廉) were promoting the TVB series, Short End of the Stick (公公出宮) on International Women's Day. Wayne Lai went down on one of his knees to give roses to 'Propose Marriage 求婚' to Nancy Wu. Wayne Lai laughed and said: "I hope it is not me next time." Nancy Wu accepted the interview and expressed she was frightened by Wayne's 'Propose Marriage 求婚'. Nancy and her boyfriend did not have wedding plans and her boyfriend did not try to propose marriage. Nancy Wu felt it was unnecessarily for man to kneel down but there must be ring and flowers. She laughed and said: "As long as not chrysanthemum. (How many Carat?) Needs not be big as I might lose it but too small does not look good too."

Nancy Wu and Lin Xia Wei wore revealing dress VS Eunuchs showing their chest

Wayne Lai (黎耀祥), Nancy Wu (胡定欣) and Lin Xia Wei (林夏薇) promoted Short End of the Stick (公公出宮) series at the hotel in Tseung Kwan O TVB City. Wayne wore a suit with bare chest and said: "Nobody will look if wearing swimming costume and we must fulfil the promise as the highest ratings is at 33.4 pts. We might as well wear low-cut evening gown and will tell Raymond Cho to remove it if the ratings reaches 40 pts. I have confidence towards the ratings for the series but afraid Easter holiday might affect the ratings. Plan to arrange a dinner gathering but everyone is busy so will eat it together at later date."

Nancy and Xia Wei wore revealing dress but was less eye-catching when compared to the 4 'eunuchs': "Of course, they are eunuchs and people are used to seeing girls wearing revealing dress. It is my first time to see Wayne wear in this way."
