Chung quashes break-up rumours

Is it really over for Hong Kong actress Linda Chung and her long-time boyfriend?

Not so fast.

Speculation has been rife that she and Hong Kong actor Philip Ng had broken up recently.

The latter had been spotted on the streets with another woman earlier this week, while Chung was photographed by the Hong Kong media looking upset and depressed while filming her new TVB drama Tiger Cubs 2.

Chung and Ng reportedly started dating in 2007, when they starred in the movie Love Is Not All Around.

Although they have been photographed together many times in the past six years, the low-profile and cautious Chung had avoided talking about their relationship.

But the TVB star, who was in town for the grand opening of jewellery brand Mikimoto's new flagship boutique at Marina Bay Sands on Wednesday, brushed aside the latest rumours.

The 29-year-old, who was born in Vancouver, Canada, and also grew up there, smiled sheepishly when asked about Ng.

She said: "Well, I don't usually talk about my relationship. All I can say is yes, there is someone who is in my life right now."

Chung said she wants to get married by 33 as she is keen to start a family.

"As much as I enjoy work now, I don't want to keep working forever," she said.

"The entertainment industry is very tiring and I think I'll have no more energy by the time I am 35.

"It's good to set a goal and work towards that timeline.

"I foresee myself getting married even though we are not making any concrete plans for marriage yet. For now, I try to spend as much time as I can with my family and friends despite my busy schedule."
