HONG KONG Cantopop star Andy Lau, 59, said his relationship with his nine-year-old daughter, Hanna Lau has been "tested" as he is spending more time at home due to the Covid-19 pandemic, China Press reported.

Lau said he accompanied his daughter during online classes at home and that he felt like he was back at school again.

He said although he used to spend a lot of parent-child time at home before, he rarely helped Hanna with her homework.

Lau jokingly shared that he could not help but "scold" his daughter while teaching her.

“How could you make such a mistake? I don’t understand it, ” was how he reprimanded his daughter.

However, Lau denied that he was a bad father.

He explained that he was only unable to control his emotions when he was teaching her and added that he always gave in to his daughter’s needs most of the time.

“Many parents should understand this situation, ” he said.

Lau married Malaysian former model Carol Chu, 54, in 2008.

> Recently, wedding pictures of an 85-year-old woman and a 24-year-old man sparked controversy after it was circulated on social media.

Apparently behind these pictures, there was a touching story, reported Oriental Daily.

The man is a firefighter, who was abandoned at birth, and was adopted by the woman when she was 61 years old.

In an interview with the firefighter Zhang Jia Gang, he revealed that he was one of the six orphans who was adopted by the woman.

“Since 1983, when she sees abandoned children near hospitals, she will bring them home and take care of them before sending them to welfare homes.

“Besides having five children on her own, she adopted six more abandoned children.

“As some of us are of the same age as the woman’s grandchildren, we usually address her as ‘grandmother’, ” he said.

Zhang added that he planned for the surprise and invited her for a wedding photo shoot in May last year.

“Since my grandfather is not healthy enough to do so, I decided to put on my uniform and complete the photo session with her.

“When she saw the pictures, she was shy but couldn’t stop smiling, ” he said.

> Former badminton national No.1 Datuk Lee Chong Wei revealed that someone once offered him RM30,000 to RM50,000 to fix a match, but he was unmoved.

Lee said that he holds on to the reputation of the country and the expectations of the people during the matches, Kwong Wah Jit Poh reported.

However, Lee debunked the claims that he was bought out when he lost his games.

He added that the advertising revenue he received far exceeded the tens of thousands of ringgits he would have received for match-fixing.
