Youth seems to be on popular Cherie Chung's side


Shanghai-born and Hong Kong-based, Vivian Chen coordinates the Cityseen column. She reckons the best way to learn about the city she loves is by writing about it. Besides taking on party-hopping duties for CitySeen and discovering romance for the Weddings column, she also enjoys writing about fashion, travel and other fun. A good quote gives her a buzz as does a stretch on the yoga mat.

Although former actress Cherie Chung Chor-hung is not yet ready to make a comeback on the big screen, she has lately been endorsing everything from luxury jewellery to funky fashion brands.

Now in her 50s, she puts her popularity among a wide spectrum of advertisers down to her youthful looks.

She was concerned, however, when she was asked to appear in a photo campaign and television commercial for beauty centre Reenex, which will be aired next month.

"The camera was focused on my face so I really had to be in the best shape," she said. "My face had to look perfect in reality to look good on TV."

It took the crew more than 10 hours in the studio to get the perfect shot, but she still dazzled in her Lanvin gown in front of the high-definition camera.

It might not be long before we see her on the screen again - maybe for longer than a minute.
