Cable TV received a bullet and a letter threatening Edison Chen Koon-hei. Have you ever thought about Edison being the one who sent the bullet? Sometimes we have to consider contrasting possibilities. Instead of stopping him from returning to show business, it may be a tactic to boost his publicity. Edison is a clever person and businessman. His brain spins fast and is full of business tactics. He takes part in the fashion trade and has his own artists. I am convinced he's smart. People should by now be forgetting all about the sex photos that Edison took with women, but they have been brought back to public notice with the appearance of Cecilia Cheung Pak-chi on a TV programme. She was angry that Edison never apologised for the matter. Why an apology? We are all adults, and Edison's not selling the pictures for profit. And now Gillian Chung Yan-tung has announced her showbiz comeback. Everyone is upset that she was playing the sympathy card and making a show out of it. People can accept what Cecilia said, rather than what Gillian did, because Ceclia was expressing her own feelings without a hidden agenda. As for Gillian, everything was part of her comeback plan. I am not saying that I don't believe Gillian. Maybe she really took the pictures to keep Edison with her. It's hard to say - girls do everything when they are in love with boys. But, well, you know, Gillian looks as if she put on a fake mask. Do you remember how she responded in the past when somebody took pictures of her changing clothes in a concert? She was all teary when she faced the public. Come to think of it, she was taking the sex pictures during the same period of time. It might have been better if Gillian had not held a high-profile press conference. She can make some good movies and earn recognition instead. Hong Kong people are forgetful, and memories of the photos are already fading. There are so many fresh things happening every day. Nevertheless, all this entertainment gossip is giving a helping hand to the government. People used to be depressed amid the financial tsunami. Now everyone is gossiping about the stars and is happy. From the very beginning, Hongkongers were overreacting to Edison's sex photos. It dated back more than a year ago when the photos appeared on the internet. They have nothing to do with us, for sure. Taking the photos is a private matter. Edison, and all his partners, are adults who can make their own judgments. Nobody forced the others to take the pictures. It's all done after both sides agreed to it. People have made too big a fuss, they just make moral judgments. They turn something tiny and ordinary in the minds of westerners into big news. I don't think anything will happen to Edison even if he comes back to Hong Kong after these two or three years that he's been staying away. But he will be back, because he has market potential here. He should try to make a big name overseas, then people will want him back. He's got a good torso and a handsome face, and I like his acting in Infernal Affairs. He used to be a rising star. So he's also an unlucky one to get into this photo scandal. On the other hand, I don't know why people are still sticking with HSBC. It has plunged from more than HK$100 to around HK$36 now. No one would have thought a blue chip would face such a fate. The rights offer is priced at HK$28, and I don't think shareholders should take up the offer. What if it dropped lower than that price level? It wouldn't be worth it. This time the bank said it has suffered many losses in the United States. Next time they may say there was more loss from credit card debt. It's too risky for investors. Two pharmaceutical companies have been found with problematic drugs. But I am not worried at all. Hong Kong drugs are very safe in comparison to elsewhere. Many mainland drugs do not list their ingredients at all. I trust the food and drugs here. At least there was no massive food poisoning.
