Chinese New Year Greetings from Charmaine and Kevin

[The Sun 18/02/07]

TVB's Best Actor and Best Actress Kevin Cheng and Charmaine Sheh have had a fruitful end to the year of the Dog and made a small fortune and they both hope that their luck will run into the new year. On the romance side though, they will go with the flow, Kevin says: "From the year before last, I started to buy plum blossom and people say that if you start, you have to carry on buying it every year. When I was younger I would pick at the petals and be scolded by my father!" Conversely, Charmaine does not buy blossom. As for romance, she says: "If I meet it, I will date, but I haven't met anyone yet." She also admits that she did think about marriage five or six years ago.

On this New Years Day, Charmaine will do TVB's Greeting Show, then go visiting and receiving lucky packets for some new year fortune. Kevin is in Las Vegas making some new year money in a stage performance. Talking of wishes for the year of the Pig, he says: "The most important thing is for good health and I hope to release a Mandarin Album." Charmaine says: "I am not greedy this year, I wish for good health."

Kevin and Charmaine wish everyone good health and smooth successes!

Charmaine Sheh Misses Out on New Year Money Making

[Ta Kung Pao 17/02/07]

With two days until the new year, Charmaine Sheh was still filming yesterday for "The Drive of Life" and she indicates that she has two days off during the new year, but on one of these days, she will be taking part in a group greeting event for the company. She reveals that she had originally been invited to take part in a New Year Show in America, but she had to turn it down because of her filming and so she will take the time to rest in Hong Kong. Asked if she has lost out on a lot of money by turning this down, she says: "I won't say! You can't earn all the money."

Asked if she has been to the Flower Markets, Charmaine says that she may go. She remembers that one year, she went at midnight and there were a lot of people there. She wore a face mask and a hat, but she could not get through anyway. If she goes this year, she will wait until 3am or 4am. Does she buy Plum Blossom? Charmaine says she does not and there is not much New Year atmosphere in her home. She did visit her grandmother earlier for dinner and was presented with a potted kumquat plant. Did she give a big lucky packet to her grandma? Charmaine says: "Of course I did!" She also says that if she has time, she will go and visit her family and friends and collect some lucky money.

Many people like to gamble over the New Year and Charmaine has already invited a few friends to join her for a small gambling party, playing any games that take their fancy. Does she feel she has gambler's luck? She says: "Sometimes! I have tried betting on random numbers and winning a few thousand dollars."
