Twins tired after Love's labours
All work and no play has been no picnic for Charlene Choi Cheuk-yin and Gillian Chung Yan-tung, who are desperate for a holiday after working non-stop since entering show business.
'We've just worked and worked every day for the past six years and haven't had real time off,' said Choi (far right with Chung), fresh from a concert in Guangzhou the day before their sixth anniversary promotional event in Hong Kong recently.
The duo, who also star in Kong Tao-hoi's new action movie, Twins Mission, said they tried asking their company for a month-long holiday to travel together, but were told it was impossible.
To celebrate their anniversary, the singers have released a three-disc album, Our Love, featuring their hits since the debut self-titled EP in 2001. 'I think it's a precious thing that we've worked together for so long,' said Choi. 'From not knowing each other to today, we've been through so much - happiness and unhappiness. Sometimes I want to cry when I think about what we've been through.'
On the new record cover, the duo are dressed as a bride and groom posing for their wedding photos, complete with a wedding dress and suit. The album's art director, Grasshopper's Calvin Choy Yat-chi, said the photos symbolised the love, friendship and support between the duo.
