Well obviously..if I post about it...I'm INTERESTED!..Lol..I've been spamming Gallen Harbour to squeeze out as much information as possible...and then went around and googled the series. I'm really excited to see this series..because many older generation actors are in it!! There hasn't been much information on what's really happening ...the original title was Gold-Plated Family...then The Crime Inducing Effects of Money...then the Grand Entrepreneurs. Either way though..it's about RICH PEOPLE. I hope its not another Moonlight / Heart of Greed. I think I've had my share of listening to actress screaming...lol. I really hope its more of a "At The Threshold of the Era" type of series. I remember liking the series alot. The titles give me so much imagination on what it is about...so I hope not to be disappointed. It's said that TVB finished filming its sales presentation...and I cant wait to see it!!! I hope some company really does pick it to sponsor. Anyways I just thought I'd share with you my latest anticipation!
P.S ISNT THIS LAYOUT PRETTY?!! HAHAHA IT'S MADE BY JANEAL @ TVB GRAPHICS!!
Ha Yu, Moses Chan, Raymond Lam, Bobby Au Yeung, Frankie Lam
Ha Yu: my ideal choice because I honestly think he deserves best actor since last year. He's always got this powerfulness to his acting. It's really believable when he's beinga jerk and when he's being a dad. I enjoyed his performance and I dont think anybody else could have played Jo Ba. I really hope Ha Yu gets it this year! Chances of him getting it: 90%, he's not under TVB contract. But he did do a splendid performance and everybody watched Moonlight Resonance. Unless he is planning to sign a contract with them..then he has 100% chance.
Bobby Au Yeung: I personally wouldn't nominate Bobby for this specific role, mainly because it wasn't special nor did people even acknowledge it. But if TVB does give him best actor, I dont mind either mainly because Bobby has done a splendid performance in all his other roles and he's really deserved it for a long time. He's a magnificent actor just this specific series he was nomianted under was covered by Moonlight Resonance....no body really cared about Your Class or Mine. Chances of him getting it: 50% chance. He's not under TVB contract and because not many people were paying attention to your class or mine.
Liza Wang, Sonija Kwok, Linda Chung, Nancy Sit, Charmaine Sheh, Kate Tsui, LSK, Susanna Kwan, Michelle Yim, Sheren Tang This is a sensitive topic...lol.. Lee Si Kei: I admit, she's a great actress but I would definetly not support her this year. I find TVB OVERLY milked her character as Hor Ma in Moonlight. I just felt that TVB wanted everyone to really love Lee See Kei --> in which it did end up happening , so they made Hor Ma the most wisest, pitiful and nice person you would ever meet. Which I find is unreasonable. This character doesn't exist in real life. I was extremely disappointed...because its really similar to her past roles in Heart of Greed and A Kindred Spirit...except the character is 100% ideal good person. It's really a waste of Lee Si Kei's acting thus I'm waiting to watch her in The Gem of Life where she seems like she will be a monarch person. Thus I will support LSK at the anniversaries next year.... Chances of Her Winning: 100% because she's under TVB contract --> she signed around TVB Anniversary time last year. And because everyone well like I said TVB milked her character and everyone watched Moonlight Resonance, therefore everyone would pick her.
Susanna Kwan: Ahh..Susanna blows me away again. Although not as powerful as she was in Heart of Greed, but I still enjoy watching her as the instigator in the series and the cute Auntie Sa. I really wished she got more powerful scenes but when she did have them, she did really well :D I think she realy deserved best actress last year. Chances of Her Winning: 90% because she's under TVB contract, everyone watched Moonlight Resonance but is currently overshadowed by Lee Si Kei's Hor Ma and Michelle Yim's Ah Hung.
Michelle Yim: I have to say, Michelle did a terrific job as the villain of this series. She really has that b*tch look or maybe its the hair that pissed me off. Either way, Michelle was wonderful in this series but I still feel she lacks something compared to her in The Brink of Law. But bravo to her because you can tell she used alot of her eyes and measures of voice to portray this character. Chances of Her Winning: 85% because she's not under TVB contract and for some reason, I think TVB never gives best actor or actress to villains. But who knows...Michelle's getting alot of support so maybe TVB will do something right...and give it to her...
Liza Wang: I think she did a splendid performance this year. I like her more in WOIL2 than WOIL...less exaggeration. I actually quite liked watching Liza in this series. Chances of Her Winning: 70% because she is not under TVB contract...but she is #1 jeh at TVB. She has that power to make TVB give it to her...
Nancy Sit: Another splendid performance. Going from comedy to tragedy, it was pretty good. Haven't seen Nancy do such indepth characters iin a long time. Hope to see her in Crime Inducing Effects of Gold , a grand production with Gallen Lo, Kenix Kwok, Ray Lui etc. Chances of Her Winning: 70% because she is not under TVB contract...but she received lots of acknowledgement during Silver Chamber of Sorrows...but probably cause Silver didnt have many young cast..so not everyone watched it. But then she's also a jie who has power...except she doesnt use her power the same way Liza does ...(lol...she wont throw a fit...)
Sheren Tang: like Bobby..i wouldnt nominate Sheren under this role....not many people watched it...but she has been rigged of the award many times...she really does deserve it :D GO SHEREN!! =] Chances of Her WInning: 60% chance...under TVB contract but not many people watched...
Special Note to Voters: I understand many fans out there are not voting for Moonlight Resonance people...but a note to you guys : BE CAREFUL... because there are many more people in favour of Moonlight..and if Moonlight people dont get it...NETIZENS AND VIEWERS WILL attack the one who did get it. So I understand you guys have your thoughts on why non-Moonlighters deserve it....but if you dont want your person to be HATED ..it might be best to just let Moonlight win this year. It's not worth it to have your idol win..but then be hated by everyone....just wanted to tell you guys that...PROTECT YOUR IDOL =]
MY TOP 5, BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR
Derek Kwok, Wayne Lai, Paul Chun, Johnson Li, Chow Chung
Honestly..all 5 of them deserve it....I just chose Chow Chung because he's funny grandpa and well I just chose him. But I'm fine with either of these 5 getting it because they are terrific actors who all deserve it =]
MY TOP 5 Best Supporting Actress
Nancy Wu, Tavia Yeung, Fala Chen, Kate Tsui, Lee Heung Kam
Once again..ALL 5 Deserve it :D All 5 under TVB contract. Nancy Wu may have a disadvantage as Silver Chamber of Sorrows wasnt watched by everyone. BUT I LOVE ALL 5 :D
My TOP 5 Most Favourite Male Character
Ha Yu, Raymond Lam, Roger Kwok, Derek Kok
I just likes Jo Ba's character more :D
My TOP 5 Most Favourite Female Character
Lee Si Kei, Susanna Kwan, Fala Chen, Liza Wang, Myolie Wu, Yuen Siu Yi
I loved all 6 characters!! But my favourite is Auntie Sa...just hilarious and cute!! =] Dont mind if either wins though :D
Derek Kwok: mainly if he doesnt get the other award...he better atleast get this award....but to tell you the truth...from one view it's like a slap in the face because he's been in the idnustry so long...kind of cruel to insult him like that..on the other hand..if he wins this...means we get to see him more :D and because he has improved since whenever...he just gets better and better =]
Nancy Wu, Selena Li and Sharon deserve it...if Tavia gets it..its like a slap in the face...but also means she's constantly improving....and we get to see more of her :D
War of In Laws, Moonlight Resonance, Silver Chamber of Sorrows
Loved these series even though there were some bad parts in all...but in general..these are my favourite series of the year :D
ATLAST.... FINALLY DONE...I originally didnt intend to.....but I realized I had some things I wanted to really say out to people...because I just dont agree with them or something..lol..so I just wrote it :D
Special thanks to TVB Obsessions @ TVB Obsessions // TVB-Graphics for making this moving banner specially for my theme....Anticipating A Bigger Drama....I mentioned before I couldnt make it..so I've been getting people to fulfill my layout idea...=] It's really pretty :D and it's suppose to represent the series I'm rooting for =] So anyways...hope you guys like it!! =]
ROFL...what on earth? LOL..some of them made these funny faces ..AHAHHAA.....anyways you'll have to watch to know what I mean..lol...!! And for those of you who are interested...YES I will be posting my thoughts on who I think will win...
During the final episode of Moonlight Resonance on 21st September, Ms Lok was on the same dinning table as the main actors and actresses. Before dinner actually started, Ms Lok sudddenly raised her glass and said “Ah Yuet(Tavia), for your beautiful crying scenes! Cheers!”This stated two points. 1. Ms Lok doesn’t only favour Kevin Cheng. 2. Tavia stood out from the crowd of Linda, Kate and Fala within the same series.
Only a year ago, same venue, also for HOG’s final episode, Tavia was also amongst the crowd. Yet she seemed so distant from the whole situation. “I actually got quite impatient. I envied others and wished that the light would shine on me too.”
This is an age of criticism. As long as you know how to type Chinese then you can criticize Linda Chung for being dense or Kate Tsui being over the top. Tavia managed to stay away from this. Not just away as in not being commented.
“After HOG, I was disappointed, seeing others being commented on, I wanted to be part of it too, be it positive or negative ones. At the end, no one did.”
This is a reflection of Tavia. Good? Not the best. Bad? Not the worst. Forever standing in the middle of it all. “I totally lacked in sense of threat, thinking that I could survive if I just walked along slowly. Never considered the crowd of people who is rushing forward.”With Linda and Kate’s achievements, Tavia can only envy them.
“How come other can achieve so much in such a short period of time? I have no background or support, what can I do to compete against them? I was impatient but had no way out.”
Public Housing Estate Tavia grew up in a public housing estate in Shatin. Her dad died before she turned two and her mother remarried. Her step dad was a typical Chinese man. Every night after work, he would sit and watch the horse racing and news on ATV. “My sister and I would go down to play in the park, but really, we wanted to watch the drama on TVB”After she grew up, she didn’t enjoy socializing, or more like, she didn’t know how to.
“I didn’t feel inferior, but with my background, there wasn’t much to be talked about. You drink red wine, but I ate on street stalls. I didn’t feel at home when I was amongst a crowd of people.”
Knowing very well that rumours would help her, knowing that some dispute would get her more publicity. Tavia just couldn’t agree to it. Her pace was slow, but there is still a path ahead of her. This is pretty rare for a TVB actress. She is one of the very few successful ones from the TVB training course.
“I agree that if you’re from a beauty pageant, at least you will be known to the public immediately. However having come from the training course, you could be a step behind. I have never seen a journalist coming into TVB to interview the trainees.”
At first, Tavia just saw it was a job. During the training period, there was an allowance of $3000 and $6000 after completion. There weren’t many options for a form 5 graduate anyway. Her first turning point came after she carried out the Best actor award which was rewarded to Gallen Lo. The next morning, she received a call praising her. “All the others hated that job, I was the only one who smiled. People actually noticed! This phone call gave me the driving force I needed.”There, from simply earning a living to getting minor roles, Tavia had set her mind to make her name in the industry. Very soon, she got her chance due to her alikeness to Maggie Cheung Ho Yi in appearance and had to chance to act as Maggie’s younger sister in The Awakening.“Looking like Maggie helped me at the time, but from then on, I had to clear that idea from everyone’s mind.”
The Dress that Cost over $10000
The real Maggie Cheung reached the top but then fell ill. The fake one couldn’t carry it off.
“This industry is pretty realistic. If you don’t corporate, then no one would write about you. No one writes about you then no one would know about you.”
“I was impatient, but there were also a lot of things which I couldn’t accept. To really continue in this business, you really need to convince yourself on many different issues.”
The first step is to wear less. Tavia has never been pretentious. “Everyone likes to see less clothing, then less it is. At least I had to proved that Tavia Yeung had the figure to wear less. It was proved that wearing less did earn a bigger response. At least I was seen on the news and magazines.”Before entering the industry, Tavia didn’t like the idea of girls in swimming costumes being criticized by the public. So is it hard to wear low-cut now? “I did struggle, but it wasn’t hard. The first time I decided to let it go was when I bought a dress for the TVB anniversary. I saw a dress at D-Mop, over $10000, not too much but expensive enough. I went back to see it three days later, looked at myself in the mirror and imagined the effect it might create. I said to myself, this will work.”
Lee Sze Kei said that she sees Tavia as the top pick for the award and since then the paparazzies have been waiting for her 24 hours a day.
“I enjoy the spotlight and I treasure it, cos I know I could be forgotten in 2 months’ time. In this industry, being good enough is not sufficient. You have to keep thinking of ways to keep yourself fresh in people’s memory. I want people to remember me, honestly, I don’t want to turn back…”

I shall openly admit it, because I dont want to seem like a bulls--ter but I haven't really noticed Tavia Yeung until Shades of Truth// Heart of Greed -> which then led on to Fathers and Sons, The Building Blocks of Life etc. So firstly, I wouldn't say that I know what type of person she is, because I wasn't there watching her from the start. I was influenced by the fact that I happen to have many of her series (I dont know why..I just do.) and thus when I watch series over my holidays, I began noticing her. My first impression, descent. I knew she was a newbie but while watching I didn’t sense any “exaggeration”. It was not great but compared to how some of the other fa dans started out, she was … descent. As time went by, of course it got better as she acted more in series. Now, she’s even hot favourite for this year’s anniversary and this is my first time reading her interview.
I was surprised by the amount of truth she revealed. She wasn’t the girl who shot to fame due to her beauty. She wasn’t the girl who participated in the talent shows. Nor was she the girl who happened to be related to any celebrity. She was the girl who took the harder step…by going through TVB Acting Academy. Now you may say…how is that hard? Well if you think about it, back then TVB Acting Academy WAS the ideal choice where all the big celebrities came out of. Yet what happened? I can’t really say but it seems as if talent was also found at pageants. Not only were these celebrities beautiful, but they could act. We have Amy Kwok, Barbara Yung, Anita Yuen, Ada Choi … just to name a few. I guess TVB built this idea that it was much easier to promote these beauties since they’ve already been exposed to the public than the girls who aren’t pretty enough in the acting academy. Of course, this is just my view as to why pageant actresses are more dominant at TVB. Thus, I would say Tavia chose a difficult road because I feel she has less chances of becoming big. She openly admitted that she was impatient. We all dreamed of becoming stars before. We’ve all dreamed of glory. And she was no different. Tavia was made of jealousy. She did wonder why others shot up in fame so fast but she knew it was because she had no background.
“I didn’t feel inferior, but with my background, there wasn’t much to be talked about. You drink red wine, but I ate on street stalls. I didn’t feel at home when I was amongst a crowd of people.”
I remember reading at a forum, someone had posted that they thought Tavia was a god digger. They had posted a video with the Moonlight Resonance cast at JSG and the interviewer asked Tavia what she thought of Moses and Raymond in real life. Tavia had said that she would be interested in Raymond because of how rich he was. She was immediately criticized by that person who posted the video. My thought: Tavia was slightly joking but as well, for someone who had been living in her lifestyle, its normal for them to be a bit more about money. As well, in the entertainment industry you never know how much you are going to make. If you’re lucky, you’ll be casted in a series. If you’re not, you may have no income for weeks. To make it to the series, it’s really true: you do need connections. You need to make friends with big people who can suggest you for jobs. Yet what do big people really talk about? What are they mostly doing? They talk about business, they talk about their charities they are doing etc. How could someone from the lower level of people relate? How can they make friends? You’re not always lucky to be found by a Liza Wang or a Nancy Sit. They say one word and you’re wanted for jobs. It isn’t like that.
Why I think she's a women of perserverance:
Like she had mentioned, she was always in the background of big gossips. She was always overshadowed by the experienced or the promoted. She really didn't have much chances to feel glory. Yet she had her morals and she stuck with them. She waited for her chance to shine, and it has come. Viewers are acknowledging her acting and they love her. She raised to fame not through promotion. Not through some bigger celebrities' help. And definetly not by any dirty tricks. She's up there because she's deserved it. Her potrayal as Ah Yuet has caught more people's attention (including my mother~).
My Word's to Tavia:
I really does hope her success keeps going up. I hope she gets more opportunities to shine because she is a wonderful actress. I see potential in her in the sense that, I feel she can become one of the #1 ladies. And I hope that she continues to stick to her morals and continuing to let herself be realistic. I hope more people would acknowledge her and approve of her acting. She has inspired many others who may not be pageant - perfect but are talentful to continue to work hard. Dont downgrade themselves and continue to perservere. I wish her the BEST OF LUCK!
As many of you know, the Lighting Ceremony was held and was aired yesterday on TV. Well to be brief, it wasn't too spectacular but it was fun watching what each actor or actress say who they are supporting :D. Anyways here's my quick review on it:
Well...I couldnt find many pictures this year, so I can only talk about some:
I actually really like Gigi's look, makes her seem very young. I dont like Maggie's look. First off... the hairstyle is very unattractive. Overly round and glazed makes her entire look to be like a "dummy". The dress: too small >> her chest looks like it's going to pop..VERY SOON. I do like her pumps :D
Ahh..Ada never fails to have a fabulous dress. I love it all and the belt =] She's really got prescence when she was modeling (you cant see it in the picture because she smiled while walking >> or maybe it's a smirk).
okay the dress is alright..but omg i really dont like the belt!!! but i sense charmaine might be a belt person when she's wearing this type of stuff....i just dont like that belt...what on earth is it actually??... i think a full belt those big ones...wouldve been better...that one she's wearing..is hideous
I like : the dress..and Dont like : the hair.... i think she should have done something else with it..than to make it..round...makes her face seem round and oval..it hides her usual pretty pointy chin. and the gold...necklace...i guess it was suppose to match the dress's gold stuff...but i dont like the gold stuff on the dress either... i think she should have had more real jewellery... seems very plain at the moment...
i like the white rimmed tux... just ..what happen to his tie??... it looks awkward...
GORGEOUS!! OMG..if i look like her at her age..damn i'll be LUCKY... love it all...the dress..the hair..the small jewellery.everything!!.. anybody thinks she looks like Kenix ??
LSK: ...she never fails to surprise me with some of her odd looks.... not too bad..nice celery green...i think its the top i dont like... or maybe cause i was expecting everyone to dress kind of classy or fashionable >> why didnt she just wear what TVB organized? Apparently some of their TVB Fashion Experts are really good Liza Wang: CURTAINS!!...guess she was trying for sexy look.. "Look Curtains **OPEN**AHHH!!!" DoDo Cheng: not bad...but like LSK.. I was hoping something more dressy Susanna Kwan: she's very into spring dresses i find..she wore spring thing last year too...not bad i guess..makes her look young though...
THE TEASE : "Something wrong With the Veterans"
Teresa Mo (brown leather jacket and jeans at front row): oh crap..i forgot what to do...
Not sure if any of you guys noticed but during the Lighting ceremony that was aired..originally you see Teresa doing the hand gestures..and then right before the above gesture..there was a blink and then Teresa is missing and all of the artistes seemed to have squeezed in..lol...
Announcer: We would now like to have all the # 1 veterans and front row member to help us blow the candles Kiki Sheung: Oh I'm a veteran, I guess I should blow from afar... LOL I have no idea what Kiki thinks she's doing blowing from far away..lol..its never going to reach the cake...
The Wine is served.. Christine Ng: Oooh Wine!! TEEHEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
LOL...who is Christine laughing to?
Liza Wang: Oh my gosh LSK!! Stop blowing..your spit is all over it!! Nancy Sit: psst...Michelle..I'm hungry..how should we divide it? Michelle Yim: just pull a big chunk for yourself :D
LOL..i noticed LSK kept blowing when everyone stopped... Nancy Sit & Michelle are close friends...ROFL...they look like they are ready to pull something from the cake...
Nancy Sit & Michelle Yim : It's not working!! Is this cake fake??!! Susanna Kwan: here..i'll show you the trick ! :D Charmaine Sheh: get me a piece too!!
LOL...they all trying to do something..I have no clue what
Many of you may wonder what happened. I asked myself the same question, before I realized my mini creation turned out to be the size of my layout. But I didnt want to shrink it because I really loved this creation of mine and thus I had to renovated my entire layout. Oh well, what's done is done...but if you haven't noticed, my tag line is still : Anticipating a Bigger Drama. I've decided that until my original idea has been made, I guess I will spotlight all the hot contenders until TVB 41st Anniversary comes. And as you can see, my spotlight for this layout is Tavia Yeung.
Hopefully I'll be able to update the post soon :D ( the one spotlighting Tavia)
