Sammy Sum 沈震轩 shared an Instagram photo of him taken with his onscreen sister Idy Chan 陳玉蓮, producer Waikin Chong 莊偉建, and cast mate Rebecca Zhu 朱晨麗.
Today [I'm] very happy to have a meal with “Yee-Yin” Idy Chan! Really want to share with everyone her positive energy. All these years, she’s been nonstop doing charity work in mainland China: helping the poor, building schools, and nurturing young less privileged children… She also personally raises 5 kids for the future continuation of her good deeds. She doesn’t ask for anything in return, but just do things that she wants and should do. This kind generosity makes me proud but there’s no words to express! She’s a great role model for being part of us “artists”! “Little Dragon Girl” doesn’t need any fancy clothes, no makeup, and no fine gourmet food: just live a modest life, but in my eyes it’s as beautiful as angels could be. Beautiful-in reality is quite simple!

Louie Castro (Ka Si Lok 賈思樂) and Rowena (露雲娜) were the guest stars of RTHK’s “Hong Kong Footpath” 《舊日的足跡》 on March 31. Louie spoke briefly on his relationship with Idy Chan “I was attracted by Idy’s unique trait, her candid personality is so different from others, we dated for about half a year. But soon realized it’s best for us to be just friends. I do cherish this special friendship, and have the most beautiful memories with Idy. She’s the only person that I once considered starting a family and have children with.”

Hello Everyone, just only a few weeks of not able to visit any forums, weibo, nor following news on Miss Idy Chan and I’ve missed out a lot of things already. Perhaps you already know by now that there’s a fan gathering with Idy in Guangzhou just over the weekend on March 24. Unfortunately for overseas fans like many of us here, we missed the grand party. Though I keep my hope alive that there’d be one day I’ll get to meet Idy. Anyway, to make it short and simple, here are some photos posted on [ALS] CYLBar. My apology to anyone who could have made to the party but didn’t know about it. With my limited Chinese, I’m too overwhelmed with the messages posted there, weibo, and everywhere else in the last several weeks. Check out those sites and Facebook for more photos, they’re just everywhere. Happy Spring 2013!

Previously filmed in the television series, “Return of the Condor Heroes” (Andy Lau’s version) as Siu Long Lui, Hong Kong actress Idy Chan arrived in Anhui looking for a volunteer successor. Earlier, Idy drove from Anqing to Hefei to visit a poor pair of sisters. During Chinese New Year’s 7 days, Idy has remained in Anhui, driving thousands of miles but still haven’t found a destined “pupil”.
Laboriously going miles to seek a successor
Evening news having provided an exclusive report that Idy Chan is looking for a volunteer successor, a wave of readers were able to successfully recommend a suitable “female pupil”. Therefore, Idy Chan from Taiyuan, Shanxi south to arrive in Bozhou to visit these impoverished families. “New Year’s Eve and the first day, I arrived in Bozhou, Lixin etc , saw a few families but still they weren’t suitable.” However she was not discouraged and continued south in Changfeng and Chaohu to continue to meet the enthusiastic people. “In Changfeng area, a pottery teacher, was very enthusiastic, and recommended a few of the local children, and I went to see them but at last, couldn’t agree upon it.”
However, Idy says something good did come out of all of this. “While I was in Changfeng village, I saw the authentic common rural lifestyle, ate with them salted meats and village dishes. It gave me a deeper understanding of their life,” Idy said. While searching for a destined person, and having a taste of an authentic village life, “It is good for helping with the charity work.”
Plans to continue looking for a successor
February 14, Idy Chan according to original plans was to go from Hefei to Anqing to find her “female pupil” but one of the girl’s little sister fell ill, the entire family stayed in Heifei to treat her. As a result, Idy Chan returned to Hefei to meet the girl and to send some sympathy and funding for her little sister. “I have two female pupils with me, let them practice.”
During Chinese New Year’s 7 days, Idy Chan has rushed thousands of kilometers, visited about 10 girls but due to the strict requirements to be a “pupil”, there currently hasn’t been anyone found suitable. “Next step is to go to Yunnan etc, if anyone in Anhui have recommendations, can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org”
