Sonjia Kwok gets milk splattered on her
TVB celebrated its 42nd anniversary last night, the "TVB 42nd Anniversary Gala" was held at the fake TV City. All the artistes sang happy birthday to Executive Chairman Sir Run Run's 102 birthday. TVB artistes all did performances in Kung Fu, Drumming, Comedic Skit and everything.
Hot favorite for TV Queen Sheren Tang led the entire celebration from beginning to end, looks like much attention is focused on her.
Last night at the celebration, it was also Sir Run Run's 102nd birthday, TVB made an official announcement that on January 1, 2010 Sir Run Run will officially retire from the Executive Chairman position. This will be his last TVB Anniversary Gala, in which he will be attending. In remembrance, Sir Run Run took a group picture with the entire artistes in TVB at the end of the ceremony.
Sheren Tang appeared on stage in her "War and Beauty" costume along with "Beyond" Charmaine Sheh and Tavia Yeung. Five years ago, Sheren failed to become TV Queen depending on this role. This year depending on "Rosy Business" and her 4th Mistress role, she tries again, enters the race, and is now the hot favorite to win. During the ceremony, it looks like Sheren replaced Liza Wang's old status, where she performs "Rosy Business Drumming" along with Wayne Lai and the TVB Siu Sangs. Then she performed a duet "Only Love is Forever Here" (只有情永在) with Wayne Lai. Sheren led the show from beginning to end!
Eric Tsang smothers Sonjia with milk
In the previous years, during the comedy skits, it always ends out of control due to Eric Tsang. This year was not an exception. For the "Anniversary Skit: Super Giant B", he played the strange looking Super Giant B, having pink nipples, had chest hair and then approached Angela Tong, Christine Ng, etc and constantly shot milk at them. But the most miserable was Sonjia Kwok who was wearing 80,000 HKD worth of accessories and was wearing an expensive outfit, she got splattered with milk by Eric and the others. Lee Heung Kam was playing the nanny, Eric joked that Kam Jeh's milk is too old and is expired.
Sonjia said afterwards: "My jewelry and clothes were covered with milk, fortunately the sponsors told me that they can just dry it and it be okay." Eric laughed and said that audience likes to see the design of the costumes.
- Louis Yuen, Wong Cho Lam and Johnson Lee pretended to be MJ, Susie Wong (from
- Charmaine Sheh and rumored boyfriend Kevin Cheng collaborated once again, but they had absolutely no interaction throughtout the whole show.
- The most funny thing was when Lee Heung Kam was singing an English song, she was teased by Eric saying that: "She only understands that there are 24 letters and already knows how sing English songs."
At the end of the ceremoney, Charmaine Sheh won a 200,000 HKD prize, while Brian Wong and Tracy Ip got 42,000 HKD anniversary big red envelope. However, at the scene they were called 3 times and still did not come out to claim the award. In the end, Jason Chan and Matthrew Ko got the red envelope instead.
