Around year end is probably one of the busiest times for singers as they have to go music awards hopping and rack their brains to come up with outfits that can make them stand out from the rest.
But it is probably not the attention singer-actress Fiona Sit Hoi-kei was looking for when the supposedly edgy see-through dress she wore to Commercial Radio's Ultimate Song Chart awards ceremony was said to give away the "granny style panty" she was wearing underneath on New Year's Day.
The always cheerful Sit did not seem troubled with the news that fans' fantasy was destroyed by such a vision and explained that it was a nude-coloured bathing suit designed especially to go with the dress. And no wonder; it was a fruitful year for Sit and the awards she received have no doubt boosted her confidence. Certainly she's showing no sign of slacking off.
"Having signed with a new company recently, I'm working on my Cantonese and Mandarin albums simultaneously, which I'm really excited about," said Sit on Thursday. She attended the Shiseido White Lucent event at Crowne Plaza hotel in Causeway Bay to share her beauty tips.
"I'm also launching my single this month, which will be released with my drawings, photographic work and jokes. The shooting of a new film will also start soon."
However, model-turned-singer Shiga Lin was not as lucky. She was disappointed that her catchy Cantonese pop song which "many girls can relate to didn't do well in the awards," she said.
"I felt sorry for Chau Pak-ho, who wrote such a good song for me. But I'll definitely try harder and won't despair."
