  • Speak less and work more, it is actually better that I was not in the spotlight, hence, no one else tried to get me out.
  • It's not about memorizing the lines, the expressions, or the smile but it's all about acting with your heart. I was confused in the past but Francis Ng is one of those people who opened my mind. I finally learned how to feel the character's life!
  • I won't give up who I love easily, it's important for people to fight for happiness. People are chances, if you miss them, they are unlikely to come back for you.
  • Sometimes I'd like to cook in a big pot, then I can share with others, bring along happiness for them.
  • If you think I can't, I will prove that I can.
