Every time actress-singer Karen Mok Man-wai meets the local press, she's asked to name the date when she and boyfriend, actor-turned-director Stephen Fung Tak-lun, will be married.

In a press event for a charity concert earlier this week, Mok (right) was asked the same question. This time, her answer was: 'Frankly, nobody has proposed to me.'

For her Taipei concerts, I Do, Mok adopted marriage as the theme of the shows. David Tao Zee was the support act.

'I don't feel a compulsion to get married,' she said. 'I used it as a theme to improve the atmosphere of my concerts. Everything I thought about marriage was included in the performance on stage.'

She said her parents had never asked her to get married. 'My mother has never discussed the issue with me,' Mok said.

'And I don't really have time to get married. My parents trust me a lot and think the most important thing is that I'm happy with my life.'
