Shocker, if true. More likely a publicity stunt of some sort, but too juicy not to pass on. :twisted:

According to 'insider sources' at EEG:

WKW to shoot a film early next year for EEG based on Dodie Smith's novel I Capture the Castle (?). Film (literally, Millionaire Brothers) features Edison Chen, The Twins and pop singer JJ Lin (originally, Nic Tse - reportedly declining when he learned of EC's involvement, or because of his expiring contract with EEG)
Story is about two wealthy Chinese-American brothers and romance with two impovershised sisters
(Thanks to Fan for confirming my translation, any errors are my own.)

Guests of honor at Christmas lighting ceremony


What is Karena Lam wearing? It looks like a hooded poncho made from black polybag worn backwards. Very strange.

:lol:
Almost looks like a beauty shop apron.

The article mentions that Karena has been looking very thin lately. So perhaps she is trying to cover up? Maybe she's been slimming down for Fit Lover preview events and upcoming promo tour? Hopefully, it's not another case of show biz anorexia.

One more of each

Possibly another case of a slim woman looking normal for her size and/or age with the media reaching for the usual explanations for her "problem." Now, the outfit . . . :?
