WEDDING bells will ring for Cantopop songstress Charlene Choi (pic) and her boyfriend of two years Anthony Shek who are set to tie the knot at the end of the year.
According to Sin Chew Daily Shek’s parents wholeheartedly approve of Choi and are already referring to her as their daughter-in-law.
Choi reportedly dated Shek, who is known in the media as the “billionaire mahjong hall prince”, following her break-up with singer-actor William Chan in 2015.
Their wedding was scheduled at the end of the year due to Choi’s busy schedule in several film projects.
Shek also wanted Choi to finish her work before focusing on their wedding.
> A 62-year-old retiree was charged with assault when he hit his neighbour because his neighbour’s cow ate the grass in front of his house, China Press reported.
The incident happened in Kampung Kubang Ikan, Kuantan, on Feb 24. He was fined RM500 with two weeks jail time under the Penal Code for voluntarily causing hurt.
The man appealed for a lighter sentence because he only received RM200 as a monthly allowance from his son.
