Recent weekends have seen a flood of celebrity weddings - from tycoon heir Kenneth Fok Kai-kong and Olympic medallist Guo Jingjing to singer-actor Alex To and film producer Ice Lee. But actor/singer Ekin Cheng Yee-kin and fiancée Yoyo Mung Ka-wai are not rushing to make it official any time soon.

After proposing to his long-time girlfriend-actress in August, Cheng has been hounded by the media on when they will finally tie the knot.

Cheng was asked about his plans for the big day during a promotional appearance at the Happy Valley Racecourse on behalf of the BMW Hong Kong Derby Race 2013.

"What's supposed to happen will happen naturally, so I'm not nervous about it," he said.

He tried to steer the spotlight away from himself by telling reporters they should focus on any of his celebrity friends who were also getting married soon.

Cheng showcased his riding skills by squaring off against jockey Matthew Chadwick in a video game that was shown on the big screen.

Though he lost in the end, he did gave it all he had and was praised by Chadwick for his potential in the saddle.
