A fashion boss who accuses her former live-in lawyer friend of stealing from her said yesterday she was not a lesbian nor was she angry the friend had a partner. 'The first thing I want to say is I am not a lesbian,' Amy Ng Siu-my, 50, told the District Court. 'Even if I were, it doesn't mean that she can take my money.' She was referring to Angelina Goh Swee-yan, 41, who, according to Goh's counsel, Nicholas Adams, was the lover of Ms Ng, a divorcee and mother of two daughters. 'She is not the first woman I have slept with and she won't be the last,' Ms Ng said. The founder of La Belle Fashion admitted she had slept in the same bed with Goh for about a year in Dynasty Court, Old Peak Road, Mid-Levels. 'Are you saying that sleeping with women is lesbian [activity]?' Ms Ng asked. Mr Adams suggested that Ms Ng was 'very angry' upon discovering that Goh 'had another girlfriend' in February 1997 - four months before they split. 'I was angry at her because she took my money,' Ms Ng replied. Goh is on trial for allegedly procuring the transfer of $1.07 million from Ms Ng's company account to a loanshark, stealing $3.3 million from her and evasion of liability by deception, all of which she denies. 'My rows with her are always over money matters,' Ms Ng said. Goh was allegedly a losing gambler who borrowed $1 million from a Macau loanshark for which she had to pay $70,000 in interest. Mr Adams claimed that Ms Ng once followed Goh when she got out of bed to find that the lawyer was making a midnight call to a new lover. 'She has so many girlfriends and boyfriends,' Ms Ng said. 'I did not know who she was calling. She always makes phone calls.' She testified that Goh had once bragged about making more than $200,000 a month working at a securities firm. Goh is a British-qualified barrister not able to practise in Hong Kong. The fashion boss said the real break in her relationship with Goh came in June 1997 when she found out the lawyer had stolen $3.3 million from her. Kenneth Cheung Chi-shing, a director of Styland Holdings, testified that Goh was 'eager' to make quick money and gave him $3 million in December 1996. Mr Cheung promised Goh a 10 per cent return in three months and wrote out two post-dated cheques for the respective sums to her. The cheques were allegedly deposited into Goh's account in March 1997. Goh was an executive director of the listed company with an annual salary of $50,000. Ms Ng had said the initial $3 million was her money, which she gave to Goh as a loan to Mr Cheung to earn the interest. The trial before Deputy Judge David Duggan continues.
