Off-screen couples steal show

Off-screen couples steal show

SINGAPORE - It was a night when the best in TVB dramaland were honoured at Saturday's StarHub TVB Awards 2013.

Hit airline-drama sequel Triumph In The Skies II scored the biggest win of the night with four awards - My Favourite TVB Male and Female TV Character, My Favourite TVB Drama and Singapore Media's Favourite TVB Drama - out of 20 categories.

But all eyes, and jokes, were on the off-screen couples - especially Tavia Yeung and Him Law - much to the amusement of the full-house, 2,000-strong audience at Marina Bay Sands Grand Theatre.

The master of ceremonies, Taiwanese host King Kong, pounced on every opportunity to make fun of Yeung, 34, and rumoured beau Law, 29 - a seemingly open secret in Hong Kong showbiz.

Later, during interviews, the good-natured and lively Yeung said in jest: "I wanted to take off my heels (to throw it at King Kong), but refrained from doing so to maintain my poise."

Happy-go-lucky duo

Some celebrities throw a fit when asked about their love lives. But not Yeung and Law, who were pretty savvy in handling the media that night.

When asked when she will be officially made Mrs Law, the witty Yeung bantered with the reporters and pretended not to hear Law's name.

When the hunky Law was asked the question in turn, he replied: "If my drama character's surname is Mr Law, and I marry her in the show, then she will be Mrs Law."

On-screen couple's sizzling friendship

Voted as the audience's favourite TV couple, actress Niki Chow and actor Bosco Wong were equally at ease offstage - even taking potshots at each other.

The cheeky Chow, 34, said in mock horror to a reporter: "You dared to mention Myolie Wu's (Wong's former girlfriend) name in front of him!"

Later, the 32-year-old Wong exacted his revenge by spilling the beans on Chow's rumoured budding romance, only to have the actress playfully chase him out of the room.
