Speculation ran riot when retired singer Charlie Young appeared in a photo shoot for a hair salon that she might be staging a comeback into showbiz. Fuel was added to the fire with rumours that Young's image consultancy business in Malaysia was hit by the region's economic crisis. Young vehemently denied she was returning to the fold. 'My business and my life are going very well. The photo shoot is only for my company.' Former Miss Hong Kong Amy Kwok Hoi-ming and actor Lau Ching-wan tied the knot last week after a six-year romance. It seemed the long engagement was worth the wait. Lau spared no cost in his public declaration of love, hiring a Rolls-Royce to take his wife to the marriage registry at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre. The wedding banquet at a five-star hotel in Tsim Sha Tsui must also have cost him an arm and a leg. Lau said they were not yet planning to start a family because of his tight movie schedule. Hollywood meets Hong Kong is a multi-cultural comedy. Local funnyman Stephen Chiau Sing-chi has been invited to direct a movie with Jim Carrey of The Mask fame later this year. The story is an adaptation of Chiau's The God of Food. 'It's really an exciting project to be working on and it should give our limping movie industry a welcome boost,' Chiau said. 'We hope the collaboration works well.' The whirlwind romance between Miss Hong Kong Vivian Lee Ming-wai and James Wu, a scientist from the United States, has caused a buzz around town. The biggest surprise is Lee is planning to marry a man she has known for only a week. The couple are ignoring critics of the love-at-first-sight theory and are determined to go ahead with the wedding. 'My husband-to-be treats me very well,' Lee said. 'He's the most amazing man I've ever met. 'I'm confident I will be the model housewife and our marriage will last forever,' she said.
