The blessing ceremony for new TVB serial “Thieves With Principles (lit.) 盜亦有道” took place yesterday with the attendance of Idy Chan Yuk Lin, Damian Lau Chung Yan, Joe Ma Tak Chung, Fala Chen, Aimee Chan Yan Mei, and many others. Unexpected to Joe, he’s arranged to sit in same row level with veterans Damian & Idy, the status is aloof. Damian, Idy and Joe were leading the ceremony wishing for smooth filming. Idy hasn’t fully recovered her voice from losing it the first day of filming, at which required her to use loud voice to scold people.

Due to her lost voice she didn’t want to accept interviews, but many reporters requested just for short chat with use of low voice. Asked if she’s not used to filming after a long break? “Why so? I’ve already lost my voice in the first day. Director arranged 3 scenes of me scolding people in loud voice. But I can continue working now, only have to do voice dubbing for my part when I recover my voice.” Why not seeking Western medicine doctors for faster recovery? “Western medicines will be just temporary solution not as a permanent cure, I rather continue to take Chinese medicines.” Does Damian knows any methods to help Idy? Damian said “The most important thing is she needs to rest, but we must film everyday, so there’s no methods.” Will this affect the filming progress for the series? In spite of Idy’s illness, Damian expressed that it hasn’t affect the filming progress, just that he and Idy must do the voice dubbing afterwards, hope she will soon recover her health is most important.

[Hm.. wonder how Idy’s character will be like that she scolds people? Idy must use up all her energy on those scenes in order to raise up her voice. I hope she gets back her voice & feel better soon. Take care Idy! Is your Chinese medicine treatment includes warm ginger/lemon/kumquat or any citrus drink with honey, use the honey from your Jade bees? Or just ask “Gor Yee” Andy Lau for his secret recipe of a special drink he makes to have clear voice for his concerts. Haha!]
