The Chrissie Chau Rorschach Test continues, or Great Taste, Less Filling: Appearing at a beer promotion bar event, Chrissie Chau was heckled by female drinkers with chants of, 'Big chest, no brains.' Male drinkers responded supportively with, 'Gaa yau, nou lik'. (Add fuel, exert power.) Unperturbed, Chrissie remained composed and paused for interviews and photographs. [This is one tough cookie.] Meanwhile, HKUST denied apologizing to Chrissie. It seems the lecture topic was not what they told her it was going to be. (?) (Sina.com)
Eric Tsang thought that the lecture was a brilliant idea. In previous years, Eric had been invited to lectures at HKUST. Was he asked to prepare in advance? He said he liked to students to ask questions, the better to know what students wanted to know. (Sina.com)

Hsiao Shu-Shen is in trouble again. The Taiwan actress was spotted with waist length hair entering a Taipei psychiatric hospital after she failed mandatory urine drug tests as part of her terms of suspended sentence for a drug conviction two years ago. [It was earlier reported that Hsiao had not been performing her required community service, also part of her condition for release.] The urine and hair tests were false positives for methamphetamine but it triggered a panic attack and in despair she self-mutilated herself. The 34 year-old actress suffers from bipolar disorder, depression, panic disorder and has a history of self-mutilation. The speculation was that some anti-depressant medication may have caused the false positives. Hsiao Shu-Shen has let her hair grow exceedingly long, it is thought, as proof of her anti-drug determination. (Xinhuanet.com)
