Happy New Year, [Mingpao] readers! On the big first day of Chinese New Year, Year of the Dragon, music duo Twins starts the dragon dance and wishes everyone: "Dragon year, dance the dragon head, the whole family has no worries. Dragon hoof helps you start a road to money earning; Dragon tail will brush away your troubles; Dragon ear hits the fortune; Dragon back will give you good health and long life. A long fine tiger, businesses goes well, everyone bounces up, happy every day!"
It will be a busy Dragon year for Twins, what are their new year wishes?
Charlene Choi (Ah Sa) hopes to spend each day splendidly and possess the 'long fine tiger' physical strength: "So I can work hard and play hard!" Gillian Chung (Ah Gil) just hopes as the Dragon year starts, each day there will be something that makes her happy. Ah Sa heard this and displayed a surprised expression: "To me, isn't the Dragon year already the first new test? Because I'm basically the friend that Ah Gil sees the most every day!" Ah Gil, who always had a calm personality, asked Ah Sa: "What are you laughing at?" But to make Ah Gil smile happily, Ah Sa will try her best to do it.
Once Ah Sa and Ah Gil encounters each other, they will start laughing nonstop. When they were doing the new year celebration photo shoot, Ah Sa came with an injury, but still went to do the dragon dance. Ah Sa has worn too many high heels, resulting in a pus in her right foot, like the size of a ping-pong ball. It was said that is good luck, so she will definitely have a prosperous Dragon year. Ah Sa nodded: "Most important is to keep the good health. I've been taking Chinese medication each day to recuperate my health. I have to maintain good health to be able to handle my jobs. I feel the most important is being happy everyday!"
Ah Gil worked hard moving the dragon head around, and often kissed the head. Asked if she hopes for peach blossom luck (new romance)? Ah Gil said: "I want to! The meaning of peach blossom is human relations, but if it's a rotten peach blossom, then I don't want it. I advise everyone to be very careful when choosing a peach blossom!"
Ah Gil: The more jobs, the more satisfied
Stepping into the Dragon year, Ah Gil took good advantage of the break to spend it with her family. She has also put the past behind her: "I understand artists' encounters will be especially be magnified. I really learned considerably much. I know who treats me well, who are my true friends and I saw it all just after one incidence. I have the capability to get back up and start over. I have to thank my company for not giving up on me. Experiencing failure, will just allow me to get closer to success. I will definitely be happy in the future!" Ah Gil expressed: "I've experienced days of sitting at home with nothing to do, no jobs, so to me, as long as I am busy, have jobs, I will be happy."
Twins will be releasing an all new Cantonese album, with 'To Be Free' as the theme. The album will express their attitudes have been totally released and they are just being themselves. The two have experienced ups and downs in life, and has bounced back up. They used this spirit to share with the people of Hong Kong, to face stress and don't give up. Must have the 'hustle and bustle, get back up' opportunity.
Ah Sa: Love and Career Extreme Happiness
Ah Sa has the opportunity to take a break over the Lunar New Year, she feels even more excited. Since she started her relationship with boyfriend William Chan, they have entered the stage of stability. She describes this stage as whether if its work or love, or even life, she can describe it as 'extreme happy, extreme comfortable'. "When work is done, I will start seeking my own life. In the past, I get off work and go home. But now, at least I know how to find a good restaurant, have a good meal and chat with friends or maybe go see a movie. Someone asked me if I would leave EEG after my contract ends and live life on my own. I will only live the life of my own. As for work, its best for my company to make the arrangements."
Ah Sa won the Gold Award for her single Years, she felt 'Charlene Choi' finally has some value in the music scene, so she plans to release a solo album and plans to shoot films. "Whether if its as a group or my own individual development, I have achieved a lot in the past two years. It is already a huge satisfaction for me."
