Hacken Lee's maid fires him instead for her carelessness

Hacken Lee yelled out to the paparazzi's yesterday evening "Changes in the family". It was in fact not about him and his wife Emily Lo having marriage problems, but because one of his maids was careless and dropped his son Ryan on the ground. His eye area immediately appeared bruised and made Hacken very concerned and worried.

But what made Hacken most angry was that before he had time to scold the maid, she immediately turned it around and fired him instead. Hacken said "Before I fired her, she fired me. I didn't get to scold her but she already said "I want to resign", afterwards I immediately asked her to leave. If she was working for one more week, who knows if we will have steamed chicken to eat? He felt the same experience as another student in his school days when they also fired their maid. But personally he felt more worse because he was fired instead.

Hacken stated without the maid he took care of his son with his wife for the last 2 nights. Not only did he not have the chance to watch his favorite English football match but he also couldn't sleep. He even had to cancel recordings, but fortunatley the company didn't complain.

Hacken blames himself for the death his dog and will miss beloved son when working overseas

March 14, 2008

Hacken blames himself for the death his dog

Hacken Lee, Eric Suen, Angela Tong and Kay Tse attended the Hang Seng Bank 75th Anniversary Special on the night before. Hacken revealed that he will be heading overseas for more than 10 days. “This is the first time I'm away for such a long time since Ryan’s birth. It feels sad to part but we still have to earn our living.” He also brought up the death of his beloved dog which he has kept for more than 10 years. This has saddened him a lot. “It’s my fault. I was busy with my concert as well as taking care of Ryan. I’m deeply sorry that I’ve neglected it. There are 4 more dogs in my house currently and I have decided not to add any more.”

Working overseas, Hacken Lee misses beloved son

On the same night, Hacken also attended JSG. As he had to change his appearance for both shows, it was a hectic day for him. Adding on, he said that his dog died a week ago due to Pleural effusion. It was too late when he discovered there is something wrong with his dog. There was nothing they could do but euthanasia, and Hacken feels guilty about it. Seeing the doctors ‘send his dog away’ felt like he was murdering his own dog but he was not in a position to control it. Moreover, this is the second time he is facing the death of his dogs. 2 of his dogs at home are more than 10 years old.

Hacken and Eason tie, both win 5 awards each

2008 March 13

Eason and Hacken were big winners last night; both winning 5 awards each; Eason was the only singer that had the firework effects when he was singing, it shows that he is the Big Brother. Hacken replies: "I requested not to have the fireworks because a firework hit my eyebrow before, and also my throat." As for Leo Ku, who was absent and had no awards, Hacken responds: "I don't how to say this, when I am on stage to receive awards, I am very happy, but if no awards there is nothing I can do, I won't take it to heart (they should give Leo an award?) I don't know how to answer, maybe he received a job that will earn lots of money, this is understandable!" As for the flu going around, Hacken agrees that schools should close for a week.

Hacken takes care of baby, loses chance to meet Beckham

2008 March 3

Hacken, Patrick, Vincy, Yumiko and Sherman Chung were guests at the "Po Leung Kuk 60 Years Show."

Recently finishing his concert, Hacken and his wife along with a big group went to Japan for vacation. But Hacken ate all sorts of food and eventually became ill. Hacken laughs and said that the time in Japan was very precious, but already had to sleep in the hotel room for one whole day; I still insist on going shopping on day two even though I still had a fever, but as a result, while my wife was shoe shopping, I fell asleep on the sofa. Hacken's idol, Beckham is already in Shanghai to play soccer with the Celebrity Soccer team. Hacken said that even Alan called him to see if Hacken wanted to go as well, but Hacken rejected the offer. Hacken said, "Actually after finishing the concert, my son already doesn't recognize me, when he saw me, he cried. And because I was sick, I had to wear the face mask to play with him, but because of the face mask he can't recognize me so he cried! Well, Beckham will also come to Hong Kong! I told Alan that if I had to say who was more important, Beckham or my son, of course my son is more important." Hacken joked that if Beckham can't recognize him, it's not a big problem but if his son can't recognize me, then it is a big problem. Because of his son, Hacken loses his chance to meet his idol, do you think your son tied you down? Hacken replies: "No, I feel very happy! Right now I am not afraid to expose my son, even when going for tea, I will bring him too." Hacken will soon be going to the US for a concert, will his wife also go with? Hacken answers, "No, she has to take care of our son, I am in charge of earning money. If she also goes, then our son won't recognize her too!"

Alan gives Hacken a digital photo album at his concert

February 20, 2008

"Your Hacken Lee Concert Hall" concert ended last night on its 11th show. Alan Tam and his mother, Charmaine Sheh, Hu Fung and his wife, Chen Dao Ran and rumoured lover Li Ceng Wu as well as other artistes attended to show their support. When Hacken was singing "Everyday is Valentine’s Day", he dedicated the song to Ceng Wu and Dao Ran. He requested for the two of them to kiss, making Dao Ran embarrassed. In the end, however, Dao Ran kissed Ceng Wu. Hacken sent them his blessings and hoped they could bear a child soon, commenting they are not young anymore. Realizing he might have spoken the wrong words, he begged for their forgiveness. On them saying that both of them did not admit to their relationship, Hacken joked “Of course they deny it but their expressions gave themselves away.”

Alan jokes about Edison scandal

Alan went on stage and told him some "uncivilized" jokes, not letting go off the recent Edison scandal. He joked, “I am giving you a digital photo album and teaching you the right way of storing photos. As Ryan grows, don’t store his pictures in the computer.” Alan also admitted that he’s someone who's a happy-go-lucky person who goes on stage and speaks any-o-how and is not the chairman of the artistes’ guild while up on stage. It was obvious that Alan was pointing out Edison’s stupidity, and he shocked Hacken with his words.

Alan also commented to Hacken, “Cally (one of the artistes present as audience) said that when you dance, it would be best that you make your backside higher.” Hacken replied, “There are so many kids here…” On saying that, he gave Hacken a red packet imprinted with Cally’s beloved dog Cash, and expressed that Cally wanted to pass this to him.

The audience bursts into laughter because of their conversation.

Both of them received red packets from the audience which will be donated to the Red Cross society. Alan Tam prepared his own big bag to collect the red packets and went the coliseum. Hacken reminded him to be careful with the staircase. “I can see that. You think that I am George Lam?” He even joked about George Lam on the incident where he fell on stage the year before.

Shirley Kwan also appeared as a guest. An MV special casting the both of them (filmed in the past) was broadcasted. Shirley joked, “I could not recognize myself from the screen.”When the both of them held hangs and duet, the audience applauded. She wore a sexy costume, and agreed on a date to dine with Hacken and his son after his concert. Hacken kissed Shirley before they sang.

In an interview after the concert, Hacken relates to Alan’s joke with the digital photo album. “It sent shivers down my spine but I know that he will not say what he’s not supposed to. I am very alert too. I did not cut into his words.” He did not want to reply to the Edison scandal, and was asked if he had invited Twins, Cecilia Cheung or Nicholas Tse as guest earlier on. All Hacken said was “Don’t ask sensitive questions!”

During the encore, Hacken sang "Festivals" last. One of the bulbs hanging on the stage exploded and pieces of glass landed on the audience’s seats. The security guards dispersed the front row audiences at once. Fortunately, no one was hurt. Hacken joked, “I sang till the light bulbs burst. I have to go over my singing.”

What is the first thing he wants to do on completing this concert? He wishes to spend more time with Ryan. As he has been very busy, he missed the time to spend with his son and joked that he’s afraid that Ryan cannot recognize him.

Happiness in Hacken Lee’s Concert

February 20, 2008

Happiness in Hacken Lee’s Concert
Hacken wears a shirt bearing his son’s face

Hacken Lee’s 11 concerts – "Your Hacken Lee Concert Hall" kicked off last night. It was indeed very exciting! Though his wife, Emily Lo, remained at the backstage to prepare his costumes, his son Ryan did not appear. Hacken’s parents, in-laws, Andy Lau and several artistes came to support. Towards the end, Hacken announced that his family is happy.

He wore a shirt with Ryan’s face imprinted on the front and said “2 years ago, I shared my dogs with everyone. This year, I met with many changes. Such as, I got married and became a father, so I wish to share these experiences with everyone. These 2 years have been very happy for me. Besides work, other areas have also provided me with great satisfaction. I feel very happy when I return home and see Ryan, even though there are lots of things to worry about – like Ryan being naughty, hungry and so on. Sometimes, I feel like sleeping but I can’t sleep. Ryan can sleep all he wants but he doesn’t want to.” The sleeves of his shirt had Ryan’s pictures too.

Fans presents him with pampers

Later on, Hacken mentioned that every time he sang to Ryan, he feels happy. He proceeds to sing a few lines “A little sparrow fell into the water” (a non-English song) and ‘London Bridge Is Falling Down’. He jokes that the lyrics of these children songs are scary. The lyrics of the song that Emily sang was worse – “I am a teapot, fat and short”. Hence, he had earlier written a song for his son and he went on to sing "Little Baby". The screen immediately broadcast pictures of Ryan. The last photo was a picture depicting the happy family of 3. How it makes one feel fortunate and full of admiration for them! After singing the song, Hacken said happily “Hope that all of you feel the bliss! Is Ryan cute? You have to say he is! Is he handsome? You have to say he is handsome! After this concert, I will bring my son around to have fun. If the press wants to take pictures, please keep a distance. If they get too close, I will think that there is someone shooting!” Many fans gave red packets to Hacken and Ryan, and some of them even gave him a big packet of pampers, delighting him.

Changing 12 costumes

To suit the theme of ‘Your Hacken Lee Concert Hall’, Hacken invited Professor Long to lead the audience to play the drums before the opening of the concert. Also, he invited the orchestra to be the live band. “I heard that a lot of saliva is needed when blowing the trumpet, where does the saliva goes to?” The members explained that the saliva is deposited in a hidden area of the instrument and Hacken immediately retrieved it. He wanted them to pour away all the saliva in the trumpets and showed the cup to the audiences. It was a very funny scene.

He even spent 3 months learning to sing while playing the piano for the song "Where Will The Flowers Fall". For this part, he wore a golden jacket with angel wings attached to the back. Unfortunately, the sound system had some problems the night before, resulting in Hacken’s vocals and the music to be unclear. Some audience even complained that they could not hear him sing. Hacken said that system is still new and needs time to run. In fact, it got better in the middle of his performance.

“The scariest part is the piano. After playing it, things are alright. I only spent 3 months learning.” He also commented that this was the first concert where he had to prepare so much.”

On seeing Gigi Wong in the audience seats, they hugged.

It was a good thing that Hacken spent a lot of effort in the visuals as well, changing a total of 12 costumes. He expressed that he feels like an idol singer. This is more than what the female singers usually do. Also, when it comes to singing fast songs, he will dance. He danced a lot for the first show.

For someone like Hacken, who is unfamiliar with dance, this was a big challenge. It was no wonder that he claimed himself to be an idiot in terms of dancing, and though slightly ‘promoted’, he is a ‘fool’ at dance. The moment he sang Tall Girl, a lady taller than him by a head appeared. She was about 6 foot 5 inches tall and even danced with him, providing comedy relief. The model touched Hacken’s chest and inner thighs, and he to stand on the elevating stage to touch her shoulder. He couldn’t help but say “How can there be such a tall lady?” According to him, the model was recommended by his fans.

Moreover, he had a section whereby he danced with fast songs. Though he is weak in this area, it can be seen that he had put in a lot of effort into dancing. The audiences joined him in dancing on seeing Hacken dance. He later expressed that he did not want to dance so much initially.

Red packets go towards the charity

After the show, Hacken had an interview at the backstage, commenting that he awarded himself 70 marks for this show because when he was dancing to Old Love Is Like A Dream, he sprained his leg. “The coliseum spent millions on the new sound system and I’m the first one to experience it. However, I feel that it’s too soft and unclear. Have I become the guinea pig? (he meant ‘white mice’ – a term in Chinese used to describe the thing/person/animal that is used for experimental purposes) Yes, this is the year of the rat after all!’ Also, he said “I don’t know why but I felt so nervous this time.”

Regarding the shirt imprinted with Ryan’s face, Hacken revealed that it was his idea. The picture of Ryan on his shirt changes each day. On the previous night, which is the first show, Ryan appeared naked except for his male organ which was covered by a golden image. The other shirts were ideas from Emily and his designer friends. He also said that "Little Baby" was a song that they decided to add in later as they did not want to do it intentionally. On seeing that tickets were sold out, he decided to publish photos of his son for everyone’s delight. Is he relaxed after doing so? “Yes, he’s just a normal child. He will be going to school later on and we don’t want to intentionally hide him.” On the red packets received, Hacken says that they represent luck. He will keep them at home first for 6 months, and later donate them to charity.

Besides red packets, the priceless gift is the laughter from all the audiences. “It’s the most important thing to see laughter during the Chinese new year. I welcome every one of you to laugh as much as you can. A smile is a precious and priceless gift.”

Hacken considers having one more child due to Media Award

[again, sorry no newer news yet.
chinese new year going on....every1 is busy celebrating!! =)

2008 Jan 21

Eason - No pressures for awards. Feeling high after receiving the Media Award

Eason was the biggest winner in all four musical awards this year, in total he received 20 awards plus receiving the Media Award for the fifth time and appeared to be very happy back stage and during Universal Music’s celebration function. Hacken got a total of 11 awards this year, ranking number 3. However, Hacken (One of Universal Music Big Brothers) did not attend the celebration function, not sure if he’s unhappy because he did not win the Best Sales Award? Or did he want to rush home to take care of Ryan?

Hacken absent in celebration to object?

Hacken said it was fair for Eason to get the Media Award. When asked if he will work hard to fight for this award in 2008? He said he never got the Media Award before, does not dare to make it an objective, but will definitely work harder in 2008 in hopes to get this award: "I will retire after getting the Media Award, Eason is so happy now, should have more babies; if I want another baby, then give me the Media Award!" But only Eason, Hins, Cheh On K and Sun Yao Wei attended Universal Music’s celebration function. Hacken absent, is it because he doesn’t feel like celebrating for others?

Ever since the merging of Universal Music last year, there were rumours that top management is biased against Eason, Hacken’s superior also has resigned. This has affected Hacken’s position in the company. Luckily, the two were quite close and there is no politics between them.

jan. 5, 2008:

Hacken won one of the Chik Chak Pop Music Chart 2007's top ten songs for "Where Have the Flowers Gone", but he was absent from the awards ceremony. Hacken said that "that very evening has the matter in the body, he said: "Begins. (Does baa? ) Begins, the broadcasting station all 冇 asks me, everybody not good carelessly guessed, the promulgation ritual does dramatically. "
[i'm guessing that hacken said he was sick or busy that day, and maybe chik chak radio asked him 2 come, but it didn't work out in the end cuz of his busy schedule.]

(source: East Daily)


In addition, a Hacken explained that only because he was working is the reason why he was absent from the Chik Chak Awards, "I always relates good with business, I besides looked does not have □, actually also has listens to a business program". Regarding makes sound of the horse continually, a Hacken said: "Like sense this year does is not good, aims at its mechanism to send the song, thought how does make own song to broadcast some much, thought the speech, while convenient informs me!"
[i'm guessing hacken said he has a good relationship with chik chak radio and also listens to that radio station. when asked why he always does not get much awards at that awards show, hacken says something like he only knows that if his awards result this year is no good, he will try harder next year, to have more radio stations broadcast his song more, and to ask for comments about his songs. i hope i'm close...haha....this was hard 2 guess.]

Ada Choi's wedding ceremony: Hacken and Emily stuck in the chaos

Today many entertainers attend Ada Choi's wedding ceremony, including Wu Ch'ihua, Chen Hao, Li Tzu, She Shihman, Guo K'oying, Yang Ssuch'i, proclaims the tawny daylily, Zhang Chiahui, Huang Depin, Chen Huishan, Wang Hsi, Mr. and Mrs. Li K'och'in, 馬德 Mr. and Mrs. Zhong, Mr. and Mrs. Liao Ch'ichih, Mr. and Mrs. Zhang Chient'ing, Li Yanan, the Hong dawn, Xia Yu, Liu Ch'o Qi and does not have? Manufacture resources vice- inspector general Le I Ling and so on.

When Hacken and his wife appears, it caused the most commotion, causing chaos. (cuz this is the first time Emily appeared in public after giving birth.) Hacken led the way immediately for his wife. At the scene were ten security officers to maintain the order. The security officers and reporters' pushing and hitting caused an argument and Hacken had to act on behalf of them and mediate! Emily indicated she knew Ada and her husband, they make a good couple, so them suddenly announcing the marriage did not surprise her.

jan. 13, 2008

[more about the chaotic scene when hacken and emily arrived at ada's wedding]:

When the couple arrived, reporters crowded around them to interview them, causing the a chaotic scene. Hacken, worried for his wife's safety, escorted her through the mob. But the reporters and security had an argument and a gram attendance for exempts the jubilation atmosphere to suffer injury, namely changes the body "and the matter is old", speaks persuades, only then struggles both sides subsides.
[i'm guessing it means hacken, not wanting an argument to ruin the happy atmosphere of ada's wedding, told a joke and said that he is old news (his baby is old news), only after hacken's persuading did both sides retreat.]
