It seems singer-actor Eric Suen Yiu-wai is ready to settle down with model-actress Macy Chan Mei-sze. The earthquake and tsunami in Japan was a wake-up call for Suen to reshuffle his priorities in life.

'I couldn't help crying when I watched the television news - those once beautiful cities were washed away ... just like that.'

Suen was one of the guests of honour on Monday to promote this year's World Vision Hong Kong '30 Hour Famine'.

The disaster struck a chord as he worked in Japan before. He was even planning to work in Okinawa next month. The trip is now likely to be postponed. 'I wouldn't mind going back to Japan. I believe life or death is destiny. I should really do what I want before it's too late.'

He admitted the thought of marriage had crossed his mind. 'The disaster has really got me thinking, but I don't have any specific plans yet. Hopefully I can get married before the end of the world.'

Although Suen (pictured) loves children, he's unsure whether he wants any of his own. 'The natural disasters ... make me feel that there are too many uncertainties.'
