BACKING China's ''Help The Poor'' campaign is a group of local showbiz artists who will give a series of charity shows on the mainland to raise funds for the cause. Their representative Tsang Chi-wai said: ''We aim not only to raise money but also draw the attention of overseas Chinese in order to get their support for the campaign.'' One of the artistes taking part is Andy Lau, who said: ''It's our Mainland ancestors who have made it possible for us to enjoy a good life here in Hongkong. It is therefore right that we should in turn help the Mainland.'' Singer Vivian Chow is charmed by the antics of star Aaron Kwok. ''When I'm working with Aaron, I have to be alert all the time! He is so mischievous. If he sees anyone sleeping, he promptly does something to wake him up!'' In a recent filming episode, Yeung Po-ling played a nightclub performer who dances with a snake. Yeung said she was terrified of the snake, but somehow overcame her fears for the sake of the role. Yeung says she is also scared of mice and rats. Artist Lee Ka-yan is not satisfied with the Government's new policy of terminating occupancy licences of housing estate residents who do not send their pet dogs to the RSPCA. Lee says the Public Housing Authority and the dog-owners should reach a compromise. For example, the dogs could be sent to live with the residents' relatives or the authority could limit the size of dog allowed in public housing.
