Personal Note: Raymond's wig is so 囧! He looks like Luffy from "One Piece"! :P
Raymond's playing a 'hea' character again....
Although Madam Lo is only a few years older than KK, she seems much older, since she has been playing housewife characters for many years.
He he.... Selena and Natalie's Chinese names mixed up again, as their names are quite similar and quite common. Also remember Ma Ming mixing their names at the fitting of "The Life and Times of a Sentinel", as well as Aimee referring to Natalie as 'Si Wan' during the photo shoot of TVB's 2009 calendar! :P
'Lazy One' is indeed a funny and easy way to remember Selena's Chinese name! :D
