Malaysian born actor Christopher Lee has given up his appeal and will serve his 4-weeks jail term.
Christopher was found guilty in early May for drink driving in Singapore, causing injury to a motorcyclist and pillion rider in a hit-and-run accident in October 2006. He is also fined for S$4,500 and is disqualified from driving for 3 years.
He should count himself lucky… Paris Hilton is sentenced to jail for 23 days for traffic offences and she didn’t even hit a person (yet).
Christopher has paid more than S$60,000 in compensation to the victims for their injuries, and has expressed his regrets in an official statement issued by his manager.
Let’s hope he will learn his lesson for real… I wonder if his relationship with Fann is affected with this case.
Macau born actress Isabella Leong is set to star in “Mummy 3” according to some recent reports.
Isabella is reported to be starring as Michelle Yeoh’s daughter. Isabella’s agent refused to comment on this matter, which normally means that the news is true; otherwise the agent would have denied it.
Earlier last week another actress Crystal Liu was rumored to star in Mummy 3 as well. From the reports it seems that Isabella is taking a different role… but it’s just a guess; everything can only be confirmed when it’s officially announced.
Mummy 3 also stars Brendan Fraser, Jet Li, Maria Bello and Luke Ford. The movie will start filming in July in Canada and China.
American born Chinese artist Jaycee Fang and popular Malaysian singer Penny Tai was spotted having dinner together in Taiwan.
Jaycee (Jackie Chan’s son) was rumored to be in relationship with Penny sometime ago… but the rumors ended after Jaycee was linked to Hong Kong artist Fiona Sit instead.
Well, not sure if they are just friends or dating… either one of the relationship won’t hurt. [Image credits to 163.com]
Malaysian born star Nicholas Teo (Zhang Dong Liang) has bought a million dollar house* worth around NT10 million.
Nic and Taiwanese artist Cyndi Wang have become popular stars since starring in TV drama “Sonria Pasta” in 2006. The drama is so popular in Taiwan that the TV station decided to re-air again.
Besides that, Sonria Pasta is also set to show in China and Singapore, which should make Nic and Cyndi more famous… and probably richer as well.
Nic also have the luxury to travel to Dubai and Europe recently, but was sad that his favourite notebook PC was stolen in Florence.
Nic is currently busy with his latest album, which is scheduled to release on June 1.
* Exact purchase price not reviewed; USD1 ~ NT30.
