Eve's bed-time ban

WORD comes our way that the current edition of Eve magazine has been banned in Singapore. Apparently its offence was to include a piece on seduction secrets and how to drive your man wild in bed. Such matters are clearly too delicate for the la-la crowd. We wonder how they will react to the July edition, which will include a sealed section on the orgasm. The magazine has already been warned once by the Obscene Articles Tribunal after it published a sealed section on fellatio.


HERE'S a reminder about the Godown's comedy nights this Saturday and Sunday. American comedian Walter D is the main attraction and is proving so popular that we hear all tables for the first night have been booked.


THE much-mooted Great Wall Concert in early June has been given a boost now that Allied Entertainment in England has promised to sponsor the event. The main attractions at the Badaling venue will be Sting and probably Elton John. Proceeds will go towards restoring the Great Wall.


IT'S difficult to imagine Hong Kong's nightlife without thinking of JJ's in the Grand Hyatt. The ritzy nightclub is currently celebrating its fifth birthday with six weeks of partying culminating on April 29 in what its PR people describe as 'an outrageous weekend festival of fantasy, frivolity and fun'.


Anyone buying an entry ticket until then will be eligible for a lucky draw with a grand prize of a fire engine red 1995 Ford Escort Si Cabriolet. The $300,000 car has been donated by Hardy Cognac and Wallace Harper and Company Ltd.


FANS of Jackie Chan can look forward to a new music video of the martial arts film star. Our spies tell us he has just completed work on the production as part of the Hong Kong Tourist Association's Courtesy Campaign.


We don't know the content but perhaps it sends the message, 'If you are not polite to tourists, Jackie Chan will come around and smash your face in'? We caught up with the action man at the Island Shangri-La, where the video was filmed, thanking hotel manager Symon Bridle.


JAMES Crockett, the pig-tailed Aberdonian who sells the 'I love Hong Kong' posters and postcards, is branching out. He is shortly to extend the range of goods available on the theme to include such artefacts as mugs and key rings.


James, who turns 61 in a few days, is celebrating 39 years in Hong Kong. His new wares will be on display at Jumbo Grade in Dorset House, Quarry Bay, and at his office, UDI, Baskerville House, Room 201, 13 Duddell Street, Central.
