Hacken faces a high challenge for addiction

[i dunno how the title relates with this news...there must be something wrong in the translation. haha. sorry about that, if there's any confusion.]

2007 Nov 26

Last night, Hacken was a guest performer for the show "Children Colleague Night" and there was an accident during his performance: It was because of Joey and Wong ChoLam! When Hacken was singing "Goodbye Concert Hall" the staff forgot to turn off his earphone, so while he was singing he could hear the conversation between Joey and ChoLam. And Hacken says it was very hard to concentrate as he was singing: "My song is like 10x as hard! As I was singing the 'La' part, Joey was also doing the 'La', causing me to not know what I was singing!" Joey explains that ChoLam and her were school friends, that's why they were so excited to talk. She jokes, "Good thing we didn't talk bad about Hacken, only saying he is handsome!"

Last night, Hacken gave a surprise appearance to the "TVB Jade Singers Anniversary Show", being a guest award presenter. Having just became a father, Hacken's mood was very high, once arriving, he started to give out the cigar candy to reporters, telling them his son's chinese name is "lee lap yan". Hacken says "the name was given by my dad, the 'yan' character was given by me. The family is very happy and very satisfied with life, on the second day, my wife, Emily, was already able to get out of bed."

Everyday take pictures of BB

As for who the baby looks like, Hacken says: "everyday is different, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, he looks like me, on the even days (Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays), he looks like Emily, on Sundays, it is hard to say, but I'm very happy to care for the BB, everyday I have become the camera man to help the BB take lots of pictures."

Hacken's mother-in-law visits his wife often after she gave birth

2007 Nov 3
Sudden Weekly Vol. 640

Summary: It was said that Mama Lo always goes to the market to buy papaya and fish to make soup for her daughter because Emily insists on giving breast milk to the baby. Every morning after going to the market, Mama Lo will go to Hacken's house and stay there until night time around 9pm.

Mama Lo said that Ryan is a big eater and she can see the Emily is tired from giving breast milk, so she suggested using milk powder but Emily refused--so I can only make her soup to keep her healthy.

It can be seen that both the Lee and Lo family are very caring to the baby. Both families are there to visit Hacken and Emily and the baby.

Hacken Lee: both husband and wife leave the hospital secretly

october 28, 2007

Hacken’s wife (Emily lo) last Monday had a caesarean section and gave birth to a baby boy (Ryan) who weighs about 6 lbs. It is reported that both of them with their new born child had left the hospital secretly and to avoid the paparazzi, they went back to another apartment in “xai gong”. Actually the day before yesterday, Hacken’s mother-in-law already took 2 big packs of things back home. Looks like she was helping her daughter to prepare leaving the hospital. Around 2 pm, the hospital’s security guards suddenly put away the fencing (for blocking the paparazzi), this means that Hacken's whole family had left the hospital.

Ryan born in advanced

Hacken's gift’s (for friends) haven't been delivered to Hong Kong.

october 27, 2007

Hacken Lee's son was born recently and these few days he does not make any public appearances, but he still writes in his blog diligently and expresses his happy feelings after being a father. The day before, he set his blog's title as "HIS NAME IS RYAN", divulging that Ryan was born earlier than his actual date. On the morning of November 22nd he already arrived in this new world. Actually, Hacken planned to announce the news 2 days after Emily and Ryan settled down but the media in Hong Kong was too persistent and were following his parents around. So, he announced the news earlier. He added: "Ryan is very obedient and cute." Besides, he wanted to thank all his friends for their concern and support.

Yesterday, “SPECIAL CIGAR” was the title of Hacken’s blog. He expresses his happy feelings as a father by giving out the special cigars.

He says: ‘seeing Ryan growing bigger and bigger everyday (should say every second) gives me a very special feeling that is hard to describe. Ryan looks different everyday and I just couldn’t stop taking down all of his cute expressions, thanks to the help of my new camera!’

A lot of friends visited them and brought gifts for Ryan but of course not like what those magazines stated. He joked that there was another magazine reporting on the entire process of their story and it was so detailed! Just like staying in their house! He a‘ded: "Actually we also prepared some gifts to repay our friends. We already ordered chocolate and bubble gums cigars from the USA but didn’t expect Ryan to be born so early. So we have to change the date by ourselves."

october 31, 2007

Hacken has become a father. Last Saturday, he and his wife went home with their new born baby. On the next day, Hacken wrote and told his fans through his blog:" It is so happy to be back at home and the 3 of us watch MU together." This is a blog about his feeling after being a dad! Ryan will be a soccer player when he grows up because he starts watching a football match with his parents before he's even 1 month old.

Besides, Hacken wanted to take this opportunity to thank the doctors, nurses and the security guards when he and his wife was in the hospital, because of them, everything went smoothly and peacefully for the first time! In addition, he also knew that one of the magazine's reporter used a lifting machine to take (video or photos, or both?) footage of his house, but anyway, they were all not back yet so that's so lucky the paparazzi can't see anything. But he hopes that was the last time. There's some news saying Emily suffered from postnatal depression and Hacken also wanted to say to all his friends who care about them that Ryan is very obedient and Emily is fine. Hacken continues:" I didn't suffer from post-maternity disorder! But a little overloaded is for sure but it's kinda happy in that way! Peanut and Butter were also very happy when they saw us!"

Hacken Lee x David Garrett

TVB Weekly Vol. 540
2007 Oct 29

Hacken Lee x David Garrett

Crossover has been really popular. Hacken and David Garrett doing a crossover for "Paper Marriage" seems like it is not very exciting, but the two creates sparks when collaborating.

David Garrett is a young violinist known to resemble David Beckham; does he? Maybe it's just a name so it is easier to put a face to the name.

Hacken has worked with many other musicians, this is his first time working with David, but it seems as if Hacken already knows him very well. Hacken was the winner of 1986 New Singer Contest, he has been in the industry for 21 years already. But Hacken argues, only 20 years. It seems that 1 year makes a difference for Hacken. Being in the industry for 20 years, Hacken has been through many ups-n-downs; but till this day still have people buying my albums, watching my movies, still have many fans, it is not easy. After 20 years, I finally have some independent input on my work.

Always low-key, Hacken married his girlfriend of 13 years. Since marriage, nothing much has changed, I am still called Mr. Lee; only thing that changed are some little details when I have to fill out forms. Hacken rarely speaks of his family, he wishes the media will place more focus on his work rather than his family. When there is an article about him, the article may be about work, but the captions will always relate to his family.

Hacken expresses that he is just a normal person, when off-stage, I like to go shopping, go play ball, just like a normal person. I still have to get married. It is nothing different. On the day of the wedding, I am just doing what a normal couple would do, but I don't want it to be a city-wide topic/focus. So just stay low-key.

This article's focus was supposed to be on the crossover between Hacken and David. But there was only a simple question to David; what he thinks of Hong Kong. He says he likes HK, then Hacken passes by and asks him "Honestly?" then David finds all the reasons to support his liking HK. Very funny. But it is seen that Hacken really understands David; he knows that David likes chocolate, so Hacken buys him a lot of sweets; it is seen that David was very happy in the collaboration.

Two grown men, crossover was very caring and understanding, it is a good thing that one of them is married! (haha! =P)

6.5 pound baby, Emily sees red--forced to have Caesarean Section (C-section)

Sudden Weekly Vol. 639
2007 Oct 26

Because the baby's arrival was two weeks earlier, for the safety of the baby and mother, Emily was forced to go through C-section. Hacken, first time being a father was very anxious, nervous and excited. He packed a bag to bring to the hospital, but because of the early arrival, Hacken forgot to bring the bag, in the end, needed his mother-in-law to bring the bag to the hospital.

Asking Nat Chan who the baby looks like, he said the baby is very handsome, very big eyes, looks like me, HAHA!! just joking! Emily is well. Will have to discuss with Alan what to give as a present. Godfather Alan was elsewhere doing a show, once he found out about the good news, he immediately phoned Hacken to congratulate him and told him that he will immediately go to see the baby when he comes back to HK. When asking Alan who the baby looks like, he responded that his face is changing everyday; first day he looks like Emily, next day he looks like Hacken, then the next day, looks like Emily again.

The baby was named after Hacken's soccer idol, Ryan Giggs. Once Manchester was in HK for a soccer match, Hacken and Emily being soccer/Manchester fans of course were there to watch. But Hacken regrets that he was not able to take pictures with them.
