With two days until the new year, Charmaine Sheh was still filming yesterday for "The Drive of Life" and she indicates that she has two days off during the new year, but on one of these days, she will be taking part in a group greeting event for the company. She reveals that she had originally been invited to take part in a New Year Show in America, but she had to turn it down because of her filming and so she will take the time to rest in Hong Kong. Asked if she has lost out on a lot of money by turning this down, she says: "I won’t say! You can’t earn all the money."
Asked if she has been to the Flower Markets, Charmaine says that she may go. She remembers that one year, she went at midnight and there were a lot of people there. She wore a face mask and a hat, but she could not get through anyway. If she goes this year, she will wait until 3am or 4am. Does she buy Plum Blossom? Charmaine says she does not and there is not much New Year atmosphere in her home. She did visit her grandmother earlier for dinner and was presented with a potted kumquat plant. Did she give a big lucky packet to her grandma? Charmaine says: "Of course I did!" She also says that if she has time, she will go and visit her family and friends and collect some lucky money.
Many people like to gamble over the New Year and Charmaine has already invited a few friends to join her for a small gambling party, playing any games that take their fancy. Does she feel she has gambler’s luck? She says: "Sometimes! I have tried betting on random numbers and winning a few thousand dollars."
