Andy Lau’s daughter to be called ‘Gentle Cloud’

CANTOPOP superstar Andy Lau will name his daughter Yun Shan or “Gentle Cloud”, reported Nanyang Siang Pau.

According to Hong Kong's Oriental Sunday magazine, the singer-actor had earlier chosen a few names for the girl. However, after seeking advice from religious masters, Lau have decided to name the Dragon baby Yun Shan, which means gentle cloud.

It was reported that his wife Carol Choo, a former beauty queen, would deliver via Caesarean section in June.

In the meantime, Lau has arranged for his 46-year-old wife to stay at a high-security residence to prevent her from being “disturbed” by the paparazzi.

> China Press reported that a freshman at Singapore Polytechnic made a plea on an online forum to his female coursemates to “wear more clothes”.

He said he had worked hard to enter the institution and he needed to concentrate on his studies without being distracted by girls.

“Can ask them not to be too revealing? Shorts, mini skirts, sleeveless ... how can I concentrate in class?” he wrote.

He also complained that the girls “loved to show off their cleavage and long legs”.

“It's okay if they are ugly. But they are all very pretty!” he wrote.

His post has attracted much criticism, with some people labelling him a monk while others called him hopeless.
