Old Article (’05): Kenneth Ma Never Had Rumors, Only Wants to Get Married

February 23, 2009 at 5:18 pm (bernice liu, interviews)

TVB’s newly promoted actor, Kenneth Ma, has been in the entertainment industry for 5 years. He has long regarded himself no longer a “newbie.” So when TVB cast him in “Lost In The Chamber of Love,” he did not self-congratulate himself nor did he feel that he has advanced to the position of leading male actor. But now since he has more acting opportunities, Kenneth is not shy to admit that he hopes to earn more money in the future….

He Doesn’t Care About Fame, Only What He Actually Earns

Although in “Lost In The Chamber of Love,” Kenneth shares the lead with Ron Ng, Kenneth’s mentality has not changed from before. He does not feel that his status has moved up. In reality, Kenneth does not want to be a star, but hopes to be an unknown rich man. Kenneth says, “When I go out on the streets now, I don’t feel that more people recognize me; my lifestyle has not changed much from before. But now, I just want to earn more money. If fame and money were separate, I would chose to be an unkown rich man. To have wealth and still have your own freedom, that would be the best combination.” Kenneth mentioned that since he is now 31 years old, and his parents have already retired, he hopes to be able to take care of his parents better financially.

Since graduating from TVB acting class 5 years ago, Kenneth now has more acting opportunities. He says that things luckily worked out: “Many people from the same acting class as me no longer have any performance opportunities. As for me, I am lucky enough to combine my interests in acting as a career, it is very fortunate. I will cherish this opportunity and will spend 10 years in the entertainment industry to advance my opportunties. Hopefully I will do even better. Actually, my biggest interest is soccer. Too bad Hong Kong doesn’t have an outstanding soccer team. If I were born in England, then without doubt, I would join their soccer team!”

No Rumors, Just Want to Get Married

When working with so many veteran actors, Kenneth doesn’t consider himself a leading actor yet: “Once a veteran told me, if anyone asks you, you have to have to say you are already a leading man. But I couldn’t say that, it’s not a question of my confidence. But I really don’t feel that my experience is strong enough yet. After filming “Scavenger’s Paradise,” I learned how to really read a script. In the past, I thought that if I prepared by reading the script right before we shot it, it would be adequate. But Roger Kwok taught me that’s not the case; you must read the whole script for the whole drama when you first get a copy of the script. Only this way, will I be fully prepared to act well. In my mind, actors like Roger Kwok, Hui Siu Hung, and Power Chan, are the real actors. If I had to tell someone that I am a leading actor, I would feel embarrassed. That’s why I am not concerned about fame and how many people know my name; I am more focused on my actual ability. In this field, I admire Hui Siu Hung. He is not an idol and does not self-promote himself, but he is still highly sought after as an actor!”

Besides recognizing his goals in the entertainment industry clearly, Kenneth nearly has had zero rumors. In contrast, Ron Ng has been plagued by recent rumors. In response, Kenneth said “In the past I have liked someone in the industry as well. But shooting a series is only for a very short length in time. I never believed in love at first sight. I will only like a girl and pursue her after knowing her for an extended period of time. But working in this industry is always so busy, after filming one series, then I have to film for the next drama. I had wanted to ask her out on a date, but I really didn’t have time due to my workload. As I am no longer young, if I were to be in a relationship, I would not play around, but I would wish to get married.”

More About Kenneth Ma

Kenneth Ma is a distinct creature in the entertainment industry. He doesn’t like self-promotion. In the past when trying to arrange an interview with him, he turned it down. Many actors hope to act in heavy roles, but Kenneth afraid he can’t handle them, would prefer to start with minor roles instead, to build up his experience. Many artists go hang out and socialize after work, but he would prefer to go home after work or watch a ball (sports) game. Men in their 30’s should not be interested in comics/ cartons, but Kenneth still likes Donald Duck. Having known him for a year, my opinion is still the same, he is not the sharpest person, is he suitable for working in the entertainment industry? Since working for TVB 5 years ago to having increased exposure today, the answer is yes! It’s because he understands his position.

Only TVB Accepted Me

5 years ago, Kenneth returned to Hong Kong after graduating from British Columbia with a degree in engineering. He sent out several covers letters to find a job, but only TVB acting class responded to his inquiries. When I was in school, I already liked to act in dramas. At that time, I decided to take a risk, but after entering TVB, I realized that surviving in the entertainment industry is not easy.

“At that time, I entered the industry based purely on interest. However after working for awhile, I realized that acting on tv versus my college experience was very different. Also I needed a bit more luck to succeed in the entertainment industry. After graduating from TVB acting class, I started out acting in very minor extra roles. But I was not discouraged since at the time, I was nervous having to speak 1-2 lines of dialogue already. If I were given larger roles, I would not have been able to handle them well. On the other hand, by starting out with minor roles, I was slowly able to build up my abilities and experience. I really never thought of discontinuing my acting career. The job market is still tough, now I have a job that pays enough to cover my expenses, why shouldn’t I continue acting?”

For 3 years, Kenneth was content playing small roles. When he received the offer to act in “Triumph In the Skies,” he was not nervous at all since the role was not a big one. However when he received the script for “Driving Power,” and his character part was that of a con-artist, he was a little anxious.

“When I heard that my other co-stars would include Adam Cheng, Cecilia Yip, and Lai Yiu Cheurng, who are all accomplished actors, I was a little worried. I was afraid my acting ability would not match to those of the veterans. However I am lucky that I got a chance to work with Lai Yiu Cherng; we had a lot of scenes together. He is a very straight-forward guy. He would often given me suggestions on how to act out a scene best. Working with him is definitely without pressure, and at the same time I learned a lot as well.”

No Newsworthy Content

Besides Lai Yiu Cherng, Kenneth also said that there were many other veterans that he gain a lot from as well: Law Lan, Law Koon Lan, Tse Kwan Ho, Hui Siu Hung, and Roger Kwok. He learned a lot especially from Hui Siu Hung and Roger, once would tell him straight out his mistakes, while the other would look after him.
“Benz Gor (Hui Siu Hung) would lecture me very sternly. ‘Do you know what you are doing?’ He would then point out my mistakes. As for Roger, he would give suggestions to Myolie and I on how to act out a scene more naturally. When Roger receives the script for a new series, he would read through the whole thing immediately. Roger would take mental note of all the important elements in the script. Roger is a team player and watches out for other people. Also I learned how to read a script properly from working with Roger.”

“After ‘Driving Power’ was released in HK, I didn’t feel that more people recognized me. I don’t know why there were reporters who were interested in interviewing me. I thought they should interview more famous actors, I didn’t feel that news about me would help the magazine’s sales volume.” When I heard Kenneth say that, I guess it was somewhat true. You can say he has business acumen, or you can say he was just being realistic about himself. Recalling an incident earlier in the year, when the reporter interviewed an elderly actor at Huang Mountain, the actor said at the end of the interview: “I guess you guys didn’t care who you were interviewing, as long as the requirements were satisfied.” The reporter was upset since that was not the magazine’s intention. After relaying the story to Kenneth, he laughed “I had the same mentality at the time [in turning down interviews].”

Kenneth does not know how to play the games in the entertainment industry. For example, he is afraid to chat with reporters he does not know very well. “When I see some reporters I don’t know very well, and they are acting like they’ve known me for years, asking me out to dinner and interviews, it’s a very odd feeling.”

He’s Not Interested In Self-Creating News

Example #2: Some reporters asked him to self-create some news, but Kenneth turned them down. “In the past, a reporter had called me. He asked me who was my current female co-start. He told me to ask her out to dinner so that the report could take secret pictures of us together. I was upset and turned him down because I am not someone to self-fabricate news about myself. Also another reporter asked me if I did not get along with a certain actor/actress. Although we had some minor disagreements, but it really was not to that degree worth mentioning to the reporter. I do not like fabricated news. If it is the truth, than I don’t mind it being published.”

Example #3: Also another time, there were reporters who wanted to interview Kenneth (since one of his dramas was airing at the time). However Kenneth was busy filming another series and he had to work past midnight hours most of the time. So Kenneth told the reporter that he’ll do the interview after he finishes filming for his current series. But after the filming wrapped up, the drama that was airing on tv also finished, so there was no need to interview him anymore. As a result, another opportunity to appear in the media news vanished. Kenneth didn’t feel that it was a loss however: “I only had 4 hours of sleep at the time, if I sacrificed any more time to do an interview, it would affect my health. I want to focus on acting, anything that affects my acting and performance I will not do. However if I have time, then of course I don’t mind doing interviews.”

Maybe Kenneth doesn’t under that when he has time for interviews, the opportunity may not be there anymore. Kenneth laughed and said that although he has entered the entertainment industry for 5 years, his personality does not fit the industry. One veteran had told him before: “Your personality can’t be like that! Other people always appear in the news, what about you? (Did they point out how you can increase your exposure in the media?) No they didn’t. But after awhile, I got to know some reporters better. After our interview, I looked back at what they wrote and they did report everything I said accurately. So after awhile, I had more trust in them.”

Kenneth is open to admit that it takes him awhile to warm up to people. “I personally feel that when I don’t know someone well, I have nothing to say to them at first. I need more time to know someone better…but I do know the cinematographer, make-up and hair stylists people quite well. Alot of people think I am very shy, but after knowing me better, they find out that’s not the case.”

Sometimes other artists say that Kenneth is quite “soft,” easygoing, and gives in to other people easily. Kenneth shakes his head, “it depends on what people want me to do. If it is not a major thing, I usually say yes. To a certain degree, I usually am ok, however if I really don’t like it, I won’t. For example like playing basketball, going to bar, I won’t. For one, I have no interest in basketball, and for the other, I really don’t like to drink. Other people may keep drinking, but I’ll settle for lemon tea. At the end of the night, I’ll pay my share. Unless it is someone’s birthday, then I’ll pay for it.”

Besides working, Kenneth is only interested in soccer or staying at home. Like today when we finished the interview, he said he had to return home. “Since I was young, I have enjoyed my time spent at home. It’s the most relaxing and I like being with my family. I am very close with my mother. People may ask, why do you always go out with your mother, I just think why would that not be normal? Besides that, I am very close with my father and my two older sisters as well.”

Although Kenneth has a close family where everyone gets along with each other, he said that his childhood was not always easy: “Since our family immigrated to Canada, Dad has been traveling back and forth between Canada and Hong Kong. My two sisters were focused on their studies, so I am usually the only one left at home with Mom. Since then, I have always been close to Mom and felt a need to protect her. I think that’s why I’ve always been on the quiet side as well. However after joining TVB, and interacting with more and more people, I have slowly started to change as well.”

Able to Lose

In the past, Kenneth did not have any specific goals. However since he likes to act, he hopes that people will think of him as an actor who acts well. At the same time, he hopes he is able to earn more money to provide for his family. “I am no longer young, I have to take on the responsibility for the family. I hope that I have more different performing opportunities. I want other people to think that Kenneth Ma can act, that I am serious about acting. I don’t mind playing villian roles either, as I am not aiming to be an idol. When I first entered TVB 5 years ago, I did not have anything. During this time, I have been earning enough to cover my needs. However if I lost everything now, I am not afraid of starting over again.”

Epilogue

Kenneth admits that his interests have not changed over the years. Since third grade, he has liked soccer and today he is still a big fan. Also liking Donald Duck, etc, these things will not change. Maybe these things may change? Kenneth says that he probably won’t….

(this one may be a repost…but oh well..)

Comments: Randomly sticking in recent pix into an old article haha. A very good read! So it takes Kenneth sometime to warm up…6 yrs? hm..haha. jkjk.

As a shameless shipper of BK, I would like to note:

The reporter asked if she has considered to become a mother? [Bernice] immediately said “I want to.” (Do you have plans?) “Many people want to have children but may not be able to. I would also like to get married soon and have kids. But I still don’t have a boyfriend that is why I can’t have children. In the past I wanted to be a 24 hour mother, now I don’t know about that. But I am ready. I am mature and it’s a suitable time.”

Aw…Bernice & Kenneth have similar goals in a way! I always had a feeling that she would be a “family” woman, but I had my doubts. I guess this supports it! They would be great for each other….both love kids!

Deep Ng Congratulates Nancy Wu dating

February 23, 2009 at 5:11 pm (nancy wu)

Source: Takungpao
Translated by: Matchbox @ mediachamber.net

Deep Ng, Jacqueline Chong, Chrissie Chau and 2R attended the “Kipling” event yesterday. Deep and his girlfriend Jacqueline attended the event one after the other. They later explained that it was because their work was arranged separately. The reporter asked Jaqueline whether appearing as an couple together her earnings would be increased? She smiled and said that to not have her earnings reduced was already good enough. She wouldn’t dare to increase it.

When discussing about Nancy Wu and Kenneth Ma rumoured to be dating. Jacqueline stated that she didn’t know but if it was true then she congratulates them as dating is a happy thing. She doesn’t mind her boyfriend seeing Nancy again or staying in contact. As long as he is honest with her then that’s okay. Deep also congratulated Nancy. He said “Did you capture pictures of them together? If it is true then I am really happy for her.” The reporter asked whether he hopes his gossip earlier would die down? He replied “It had originally died down, everyone has a past. If she finds a suitable guy I hope that she will be happy.” He has not met Kenneth Ma before but has heard that he is a good son and has rarely has rumours, very rare. Deep also stressed that he will not compare himself to him. But no matter who she dates, most important is that she is happy. He is no longer in contact with Nancy. “It’s not necessary to create pointless misunderstandings.” As for Gillian Chung making an comeback in March, he said “No matter what, I will support her. I feel that she is prepared and ready.” Read the rest of this entry »

Mak Ling Ling’s Oriental Daily Interviews with Margie & Ella; Nancy Sit mentions Kenneth

February 17, 2009 at 9:01 pm (ella koon, margie tsang)

Ella Koon

Mak Ling Ling: There are times during filming that you will have intimate contact, will you be more careful (to prevent anything from happening)?

Ella: Actually, I have only filmed two series. Kenneth Ma absolutely will not (take advantage), he is an absolute honourable gentleman to the point…..I like this guy very much! He is a good gentleman!

Mak Ling Ling: Then how come you didn’t pick him and picked someone else? You obviously picked the one for his good looks?

Ella: Kenneth Ma is ok, too! There are times when you admire a guy not only for the “like” found between a man and woman. He’s a very good guy!

Credits: hyn5 (also other version of the Margie article can be found here as well)

Margie Tsang

Mak LL: You’ve always had “TaoFa” (meaning luck with girls/guys), Kenneth Ma was for real, right?
Margie: Crazy! It’s fake!
Mak LL: The rumors sound really real! Didn’t they get pictures of you two dining together?
Margie: We didn’t dine together, we only had drinks! Sometimes when a lie is repeated for ten times it seems to become true.
Mak LL: But any women that speaks with Kenneth Ma will end up liking him. They’ll think that he’s really great! For example “YuenJai” (Kingdom Yuen) said to me that Kenneth Ma is a really great guy, and asked if I could introduce some girls to him.  I said “Isn’t he dating with someone?”  Kingdom said “They broke up!” There really isn’t any chance? He’s really a great guy, he’s a “steal”! (純品 I really didn’t know how to translate that)
Margie: I’m a “steal” as well! (我都好純品傢!)

Nancy Sit

Durning an interview Nancy was asked of the new comers who she thinks has good potentials. Nancy said she thinks Linda Chung, Raymond Lam and Kenneth Ma has strong potentials.  She said Kenneth Ma is able to play a lot of different roles, and he has talents for acting, hence he’s also the “future star.”

Credits: Carmen

Comments: aw…it’s so cute that all the girls that work w/ Kenneth do end up liking him. Just look at Toby! haha. This is the second time Ella has said she really likes Kenneth public lol. (first time on Ebuzz) Also, I remember reading Queenie Chu saying that Kenneth is a really nice guy during one of the salty pork hand news; she said it was definitely not him. I’m gald to learn that Kingdom likes him as well. So many ppl out there working to find Kenneth a gf! There’s Sharon, Myolie, Christine, Kate, and now Kingdom..hm… I truly wonder if “mission has been accomplished” 🙂

Kenneth Ma & Nancy Wu danced to love, been dating for 10 months

February 17, 2009 at 3:29 pm (christine ng, nancy wu, sharon chan)

Filming "Not Just A Pretty Face" - Kenneth was still shy (crossed arms)

Since Nancy and Deep Ng broke up, Nancy had been single all ever since, however it turns out that after participating in “Strictly Come Dancing 2”, and through the “fanning help” (a Chinese term meaning to pair two people together) of her good friends Sharon Chan and Christine Ng, Nancy is now dating  Kenneth.  It is also said that Nancy has now moved to TaiKoo City to be neighbours with Kenneth.  It only takes about 5mintues for the two of them to walk to each other’s home.

Near the end of SCDII


Kenneth and Nancy had actually known each other for 6 years. They first met when they were both taking part in the filming of “Triumph in the Skies”.  But there wasn’t a lot of screen time where the two of them were together.  And because Kenneth is a very shy person at the time, he didn’t get to become good friends with Nancy (get to know each other more).  Only until last year when they both took part in “Strictly Come Dancing 2” they spent a lot more time together (day and night).  And with the help of Christine Ng and Sharon Chan, they just naturally become couples.
Kenneth currently lives in TaiKoo City, it’s not known if Nancy had moved because of Kenneth, but she originally lived with her family in TuenMun, but she has now has moved to TaiKoo City as well.  Both Nancy and Kenneth are now being promoted by TVB, in order to avoid negative impacts to their careers, ever since they began dating they decided to keep it very low key, and very protective about their relationship.

Few days ago, the media came across Nancy where she was wearing a cap and was about to leave the parking lot, she was very surprised to see us there.  When asked if she was dating with Kenneth, Nancy with a sweet smile said “No! Of course not!” When asked if there are opportunities to develop a relationship she said no one knows what will happen in the future.
Within this industry, Kenneth is known to be a great guy, very caring of his family, and Nancy agrees with this as well and says “He’s famous for being a good boy, he has a very good reputation in the company (TVB), I don’t know if he cares for his family or not, but he’s always mentioning about his mom.  When asked if she wants to date she said “I would like to have someone care for me, but I haven’t been dating for a while now, and my (career) performance last year was pretty good, I don’t want to take my focus off of it, but fate is hard to control/say, regardless, I’m just going to put all my efforts into my career/job” then she drove off to have tea with friends at a mall 康怡廣場 (name of a mall).

Danced and sparked love, Kenneth Ma and Nancy Wu have been dating for 10 months

February 16, 2009 at 11:38 pm (nancy wu)

Source: http://orientaldaily.on.cc/
Translated by travelbug @ http://asianfanatics.net

Nancy Wu had not been dating since her break up with Deep Ng. Actually last April when she participated in Strictly Come Dancing 2, good friends Sharon Chan and Christine Ng used their matchmaking skills to pair her up with one of the most eligible bachelors in the entertainment industry, Kenneth Ma. It is known that Nancy has moved to Tai Koo Shing (太古城) to become Kenneth’s neighbor, walking to his place doesn’t even take 5 minutes!

Since her break up with Deep Ng, Nancy has not dated for some time, her good friend Sharon had tried to find her a boyfriend. Kenneth and Sharon are also very good friends so Sharon had always intended to set them up. Coincidentally Kenneth broke up with Margie Tsang last year, also Nancy and Kenneth were both in Wunan last April to participate in Strictly Come Dancing 2. According to sources, Sharon and her god-sister Christine both acted as matchmakers for Nancy and Kenneth, they are another couple after Mandy Cho and Stephen Huynh that danced to ‘fire of love’.

In fact, Nancy and Kenneth have known each other since filming Triumph In The Skies 6 years ago, but they did not have many scenes together, also Kenneth was naturally shy so he did not get to know her well. Last year during Strictly Come Dancing 2, Nancy and Kenneth saw each other all the time and with the help of matchmakers Sharon and Christine, love sparked and they became a couple.

It is known that Kenneth now lives in Tai Koo Shing, probably to accomodate her boyfriend, Nancy who used to live with her family in Tuen Mun, has moved close to her boyfriend’s place, convenient to seeing each other. But since both Kenneth and Nancy are being promoted by TVB, to avoid affecting their careers, since they started dating, they have kept a low profile and are carefully protecting their relationship. Our reporters found out that they parked their cars in their respective parking lots, but they can walk to see each other since their apartments are close together.

Earlier our reporter found Nancy who was wearing a cap at the parking lot ready to leave, when she saw a reporter she was stunned. Asked if she and Kenneth are dating, Nancy said sweetly: “No, of course not!” Asked if there is any chance of dating Kenneth in the the future, she said no one can tell what happens in the future.

Kenneth is well known in the entertainment circle as a good man and also respects his parents, Nancy very much agreed and said: “He is known as a good man and his reputation at the company is also good, whether he respects his parents I don’t know, but he always mentions his mom.” Asked if she is eager to date? Nancy said: “I would like someone to take care of me but I haven’t dated for some time. Also since last year my career has been going smoothly, I don’t want to get distracted, but fate is hard to say, working hard comes first!” She then drove off to meet with friends.

Earlier at 2 am, our reporter ran into Kenneth who just finished that day’s filming of Root of Evil/The Grand Entrepreneurs. Asked about his romance with Nancy, he lightheartedly said: “This has been rumored for some time, but we live very close to each other.” Asked if there is any chance of developing romance, Kenneth said: “You asked like this, of course I will say yes, I won’t say she is ugly and not suitable for me.”

Kenneth & Tavia: November ’08 Poll Results (Finally….)

February 16, 2009 at 8:18 pm (tavia yeung)

Results –

Which Fresh Kenneth Pairing Would You Most Like to See? Kenneth &…

Tavia Yeung 44% (16 votes)

Nancy Wu 19% (7 votes)

Myolie Wu 14% (5 votes)

Linda Chung 11% (4 votes)

Fala Chan 11% (4 votes)

Total Votes: 36

Sry the results are kinda late, but Tavia’s been leading the poll ever since it started! Even after leaving it here for months, she still leads the poll! Thank you for voting you guys!

The two underdogs of the Younger Generation, acting class grads Kenneth & Tavia have never been paired up since Eternal Happiness years ago when they were still practically cameos. However, today, they have both found great success, taking on leading roles, winning recognition for their hardwork from the audience. Not only are they recognized for their hard work and talent, but these two also have shown us that you don’t need plentiful headlines/rumors to make it in showbiz. They may have taken the longer and harder road, but they have gained alot of respect from the fans!

After the recent (well not really anymore), Anniversary Gala, many Kenneth & Tavia shippers have emerged, all going crazy over the screen caps of them playing the card passing game. Screencap analysis of whether they kissed or not along with a wave of exclamations that they “warmed up the TVB studios w/their hott kiss” spread across the forums like a forest fire (haha I’m sounding weird now), making for a “literally” hot topic!

Back in the Day….Eternal Happiness

This was their very first and only pairing in a TVB series. This was also Tavia’s first “bigger” role. Kenneth’s role was relatively insignificant. Later on, they reunited in “The Vigilante in the Mask“, Tavia’s first official lead series. Read the rest of this entry »

Kenneth’s Bday Fan Visit!

February 13, 2009 at 9:26 pm (bday)

Yin @ MKMC posted these pix up. Some fans went to visit Kenneth at TVB  I believe.
There pix are super cute. Kenneth looked really touched ( haha…who wouldn’t be w/ all the presents and cake!?!) Kenneth wears that tank alot! He’s so casual and adorable! I wonder who asked him to pose w/ the little heart…that was sorta …uh..haha… it’s hard to believe he’s 35..such a big kid! (The cakes are so cute…one w/ a 3 and one w/ a 5)

Comments: The videos were super cute as well. Kenneth was saying he must have offended some PA, cuz he has to work on his Bday til late and early the next day. He’s only gotten to eat a “so called” bday dinner w/ his family. Fans asked him about his V-day plans and Kenneth says he has to work as well….(He’ll be dubbing for General Chai & Lady Balsam)

They also ask whether he’s found a “Valentine aka lover” yet and Kenneth awkwardly answers that even if he had one, he’d have no time to spend w/ her and they’d be on the verge of break-up. This made one of the fans say “So you do have a sweetheart” and he smiles and changes the subject to say that Root of Evil has a lot of big stars and they all get Vday off so the little guys like him have to work on the day! haha…smooth Kenneth smooth…Then he makes a wish for good health and wishes everyone else good health!

hm…I wonder why Kenneth is so indirect with the answer about a sweetheart…did he recently find one? haha…after all, all the girls are trying to introduce girls to him!

Happy 35th Bday Kenneth! 2.13 : the Best Friday the 13th there is!

February 12, 2009 at 4:28 pm (selena li)

Since HK is a day before us, I decided to post this today haha. I cannot believe Kenneth is already 35! I remember when I first started liking him, I wondered how long it’d last. Will I stop liking him when he becomes older? (I wonder if I’ll like him when he’s 40…time shall tell haha) Well, anyways, he looks nothing like his age, he looks like he’s in his late 20s or something! His bday may be on Friday the 13th, but there’s nothing scary or unlucky about this day as this was the day when this cute guy was born for all of us to adore!

Dear Kenneth,

Hope you have the awesomest Bday ever! May all your wishes come true!
May you and your family be healthy and happy! Since you’re a big boy now, hope you’ll have a family of your own soon and have a little MaMing! Hope you’ll always love your job and find great success!

Love watching your performances…and I know I will continue to enjoy the ones in the near future!

Valli

Also, today 2.12 is actually Selena Li’s bday! Isn’t that a coincidence? The day before Kenneth’s bday! Both b4 V-day! I remember how they celebrated Michelle Ye’s Bday w/ Kenneth’s and if it hadn’t been for her leaving TVB, I think they’d probably have celebrated Selena-Kenneth-Michelle’s bdays together (The Herbalist Manual trio!). Maybe fans could make a KenSelena bday/vday party (like TaRo parties)….

Kenneth in search for his partner to have a baby

Kenneth was at a public event recently.  During the function the children dressed up in costumes from different countries.  Kenneth admits that he loves children, and really hopes to have his own family soon.  He’ll want to have his own children once he is married, and right now he is in search of a partner.
During the day of the event, Kenneth’s nephew also came to support Uncle Kenneth.  Kenneth indicates that his nephew is always nagging him for gifts, in the eyes of his nephew everyday is Christmas.
Kenneth is busying filming, but he’s glad that he’s able to attend public functions so that he’s able to earn a few extra dollars!

Comments: Sry, this news is a little old, but news nonetheless haha. OMg, Kenneth is just too cute..I love the creepy expression in the next to last pic! Aw… he really wants to be a daddy…I really hope he meets the girl of his dreams and starts a family with her! Make a baby MaMing! Well, I was procrastinating from work and started playing w/ a baby generator haha (thanks to Enrica and her blog…i saw how she “made a baby” with MaMing lol…) I made some Bernice & Kenneth babies, but unfortunately the website only does Caucasion or African American….so their babies turned out white haha…but oh well… (I must admit, they make pretty good babies, pretty symmetrical and cute!) Here they are!
