So much movement in TVB, the seasoned actresses and actors seem to have moved on and the current line up has changed a lot. Don't recognize these peeps. Anyway, looking forward to this drama for its plot theme more than the cast. Hopefully they will not disappoint.

Eliza Sam can't decide where to buy properties

 
eliza_sam.jpg

TVB fadan Eliza Sam (岑麗香) attended the promotional event for upcoming series Brick Slaves (樓奴). She, wearing a short skirt, was extremely into the games and even accidentally revealed her panties! In the series, her role returns from oversea and was shocked to see Hong Kong property prices being surprisingly high. Asked whether this role was tailor-made for her, she smiled and said: "Not exactly, I think many people would also feel this way, at the same price you can purchase many properties oversea, in Hong Kong you can only buy a subdivided flat." Currently renting out a place, Eliza expressed that she is deciding whether to purchase property in Hong Kong or Canada. Since she wasn't born and raised in Hong Kong, she would have to pay more taxes to buy property here, and thus she has to think about it more clearly: "Or maybe I will buy property in Canada and then lease it out to manage the rent in Hong Kong. I've came to Hong Kong to work for four years, I can only get a HK residency card after three more years, so I still have three more years to plan, everyone don't give me too much pressure. (Ask family to help financing?) My parents did suggested it but I want them to enjoy a better life after they retire, moreover, I am really independent, I want to depend on myself. (Marry a wealthy man?) Huh? This is one way! But it wouldn't be my choice. (Have a flash wedding like Lin Xia Wei (夏薇閃)?) Don't have such a plan, I want to do everything one step at a time!"

As for good friend Christine Kuo (苟芸慧) being in a car accident earlier, Eliza expressed that she did send condolences to her via text messaging: "She even said she was OK, we will pray for her health."

Goof in new TVB series Brick Slaves discovered by a netizen

 
selena_li_gaffe_brickslave.jpg

This week, TVB started broadcasting new series Brick Slaves (樓奴), whose topic can easily instigate sympathy from the audience. But an observant netizen discovered a goof: female lead Selena Li (李施嬅) took a cab to Tin Shui Wai (天水圍) but the location where she got off was actually Tseung Kwan O (將軍澳), which shows the crew's lack of professionalism. However, there was a netizen who left a message expressing support and pointed that the role's wardrobe and even script is "already pretty good."

Facebook page "The home of Tseung Kwan O" (將軍澳主場) posted a screenshot of the scene, indicating that Selena took a cab heading to Tin Shui Wai and the location she got off was opposite a long bridge. The moderator pointed out that it is actually across from Tseung Kwan O's Sheung Tak estates (尚德邨) and left a message saying: "Did everyone realized, many series usually take sceneries from Tseung Kwan O, since after all the station is nearby. But, she clearly said she's going to Tin Shui Wai, why did she end up at Sheung Tak in the end? Please be a little more professional in filming, although you've fooled many people but you wouldn't be able to fool us people who live in Tseung Kwan O."

Our reporters looked up Google Maps and confirmed that the location the female lead got off at was Tseung Kwan O's Tong Ming Street (唐明街), the bus stop across from Sheung Tak shopping center.

There was also a netizen that the goofs in TVB series are related to their budget, they wouldn't actually go to Tin Shui Wei for a one-second scene; another also pointed that in the end, it's just a series, no need to be too serious about it.

Vincent Wong first time playing lead role causing great stress

 
vincent_wong.jpg

Artiste Vincent Wong (王浩信) accepted an interview from ON.CC (東網) in the currently broadcasting TVB series, Brick Slaves (樓奴), Vincent plays the male lead for the first time. When asked whether this has brought upon him great stress and thus caused abnormal behaviors, he said : "Acnes would grow, they would grow on my forehead, and I also couldn't sleep, then I would drink a little wine to allow myself to relax."

He also said he would rely on video games to reduce stress: "I would play first-person games, like those RPG, it allows me to quickly get into another character, after a few days, I would only think about how to play the video game and wouldn't think about the series again!"
