TVB celebrities Charmaine Sheh, Bernice Liu, Raymond Lam and Ron Ng were in Malaysia on Wednesday to take part in a products expo and at the press conference, Charmaine wore her own blue dress worth $6000. Asked if she has a decent fee for this job, she smiles: "I am very happy with the fee, it is very good and is six figures." Bernice sang two songs at the event and after work the night before, she risked a storm warning to fly to Malaysia. As she was so tired, she fell asleep as soon as she was on the plane.

Charmaine has been rumoured to have gone for a meal with TVB executives Stephen Chan and Virginia Lok in order to throw favour on her chances to win an award at the anniversary. In response to this, she explains that she just happened to meet Stephen and Virginia on that day and they praised her performance in "Maiden's Vow", so she jokingly asked them for a reward and asked them to join her for a meal. So did they discuss the anniversary that evening? She says: "We absolutely did not speak about the anniversary and it is only September, so it is a bit early? We would have to go again in October if that was the case." As for the suggestions she was paving the way to an award, she retorts: "You don't get awards for meals!"

The size of the dress for the catwalk does not fit Charmaine, so she wore a privately sponsored black dress by Chanel.

Charmaine says that she is currently resting and in October, she will be filming TVB's new 60 episode series opposite Raymond and Ron. She has been very happy with her performance in "Maiden's Vow" because to play four different characters in different times was very challenging and difficult.

Ron's English ability is very poor and he has embarrassed himself on many occasions. At the press event, when they each introduced themselves, only Bernice spoke in English, whilst Raymond and Ron both spoke Cantonese. Afterwards, Ron explained that he was not worried about making a fool of himself, but it had been agreed that they would introduce themselves in their mother tongue. At the event, Raymond met his co-star and rumoured girlfriend from "Yummy Yummy - Food for Life" Michelle Chia and introduced her to Ron and Bernice as 'his girlfriend'. However, he later denied that they had a relationship, saying that they just got on very well.

Ron says he will not put too much thought on awards, saying that he is currently filming for "Cadets on the Beat" with Joey Yung and they are getting on well. He says that Joey is a very direct girl, who is very professional, so they often study their characters together.

Some tidbits translation:

[Sinchew, Nanyang & Chinapress]

- Charmaine and Indonesian singer Kris Dayanti was chatting non-stop, so the reporters asked Charmaine was are they discussing. Charmaine said they're just exchanging shopping tips. They were also seen exchanging phone numbers. Kris mentioned that she will be going to HK soon and look forward to visit Charmaine.

- Ron was asked whether he have confidence in winning Best Actor against Ray at TVB Anniversary this year. Ron said everyone should have confidence and he feels that they both stand equal chance. He also said that though both series are by the same producer (Poon Ka Tak), LFD was serious while MIP was comedic genre.

- Four of them received 6 figure fee for the event. That means each of them received more than HK$100,000 per person.

- Charmaine was critisized by HK press for wearing another's label dress for the catwalk. Charmaine explained that because the original dress prepared by Bonia was too large and luckily Chanel was willing to sponsor her dress. She was relieved that the black dress matched well with Bonia's shoes.

More tidbits and side translation will be added later. Lol... I just love Charmaine sarcastic wit: "We would have to go again in October if that was the case." Kekeke...
