There is a saying: 'If you go out to eat, don't worry about how the food is made' because sometimes there will be dark secrets inside the kitchen that will be revealed. It is better not to know than to know. Recently there was a short 20 second video clip circulating the internet, showing a restaurant chef wearing a pair of black rain boots and on the floor was a tub of chicken feet. Afterwards, the chef started treading onto the tub of chicken feet and during the process, a few pieces of the chicken feet fell onto the floor. After watching the clip, it is not known why the chef did this. Maybe this would make the chicken feet more tasty? Some people have said if you drop food onto the floor, you must eat it within 3 seconds and you won't get sick, but those chicken feet seems like it has been on floor for more than 3 seconds.

Reporters then phoned TVB's Steve Lee (Ding Ye 李家鼎) who is well known from his cooking program and asked about his thoughts of the clip. Ding Ye said, although his father used to open a restaurant, but he did not work there. So therefore he cannot comment on this type of approach. Since Ding Ye is very experienced in cooking, so how does he manage chicken feet? He said: "I would first wash it with water. To remove the bones, I would give a cut on the centre of the feet and then slowly take the bones out. It's just that simple!" In common sense, we would use our hands to handle chicken feet and it would be easier to use hands if they need to ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Mainland variety show The Negotiator (王牌對王牌), was successful with its first season and is currently airing the second season. The latest episode was aired on February 10th, the guests: Nicholas Tse (謝霆鋒), Charlene Choi (蔡卓妍), Gillian Chung (鍾欣潼), Jolin Tsai (蔡依林) and more were invited to play a variety of games. Among the guests, Charlene Choi (Ah Sa) was the most funniest when imitating Nicholas Tse with a CHOK look. She tried to expand the nostrils to imitate him, which caused a lot of laughter on the night.

Ah Sa laughed and loudly said: "Every time when Nicholas gets nervous, his nostrils becomes big". After the broadcast, there were numerous photos and video clips magnifying Nicholas's nostrils. Nicholas who always has a calm look, gave his best during the games showing a different side of him.

Besides laughter there was also an emotional story. When the guests were taste testing foods, Cho Lam (王祖藍) had an emotional story in relation to curry fish balls. He shared a story about his father, who was suffering from digestive system problems and before his death, he said he wanted to eat curry fish balls. However, at that time he could only eat liquid food. If he consumed other foods, it will cause him discomfort and vomiting. So Cho Lam and sister prohibited their father from eating his favourite foods, but Cho Lam now regrets: "Now I have a little regret because if you love someone, you don't have to protect them from everything. If you love someone, you have to let them do their favourite things and not decide for them. This story moved the audience and guests of the night.

Chrissie Chau Sau Na and Jason Chan Pak Yu yesterday attended a fashion brand event. Sister Na had to throw 30 punches in 30 seconds, with Pak Yu as the "human sand bag"; Sister Na revealed that earlier when she worked on KICK ASS GIRLS (BAU 3 CHIU GIU WA) she fell in love with the sport of kick boxing. She felt very healthy after getting a good sweat, in addition during the shoot she injured her left heel ligament. The doctor said that it would be very hard to cure, the only way was to rest. Thus kick boxing could train other muscles to support the injured ligament and reduced the pressure to the would. However now her wound be would swollen during storms, so she would bring flats to change into if she knew that she had to be in heels for a long time. Sister Na trained more for the event and her shoulders were sore.

Sister Na in her film HUSBAND KILLERS (NUI JI FOOK SAU) yelled at Stephy Tang Lai Yun with foul language. She said, "I rarely get to use foul language out in the open. I rarely use it. Since everyone don't hear me use it a lot, when I did in the movies people on the set would laugh. I hear a lot of it on the set, which made it very pleasure and very familiar. However I am too natural or smooth with it. I would only use it at home when I get mad, I rarely use it with other people."

After 30 years in the business, Philip Keung Ho Man with the film TRIVISA (SHU DAI JIU FUNG) received his first Hong Kong Film Award Best Supporting Actor nomination. Yesterday he said on the radio that he felt happy and honored. "On the day of the announcement, when I found out I got one I screamed. I scared my wife, but she immediately opened a bottle of champagne to celebrate with me." Hak Jai said that he would like to win but the other nominees were very strong as well. He would be happier for others if someone else won. He said, "My friends and people online really treat me well, they feel tense for me. I was already very happy to see the online comments, it's like a victory for me already!"

Speaking of his co-stars Gordon Lam Ka Tung and Richie Jen (Yam Yin Chai)'s Best Actor nominations, Hak Jai said that they were only missing Jordan Chan Siu Chun and picked Ka Tung to have a better chance. "He always sat at a corner to prepare for the performance and gave me a lot of suggestions. We are very similar. We started on television, then we rose and fell. If he won it would be great!"

Asking if they had any chances to develop their relationship, Jacqueline replied Kenneth had chance and they needed to increase their understanding for each other first. When asked about his strength, Jacqueline said: "He is a filial son. Although many people say he is boring, but boredom is not a bad point though."

Tracy Chu (朱千雪) is a good friend of Jacqueline Wong (黃心穎) and attends an event with Jacqueline's rumoured boyfriend, Kenneth Ma (馬國明) together. She expressed she did not ask about her personal affair: "She will say it if she wants to. (Are they a matching couple?) Yes. Jacqueline is lively and Kenneth is a decent man. (Any suitors?) Nope. I get to know new friends and need to increase the understanding for old friends. I am poor in relationship and date Jennifer Shum (岑杏賢) for dinner on Valentine's Day. (Do your suitors have car and property?) Nope as I have it. Relationship does not consist of education and money only and feeling is most important."

BabyJohn Choi Hong Yik yesterday promoted his film VAMPIRE CLEAN UP DEPARTMENT (GAU GEUNG CHING DOH FU) on the radio. He was very happy that the film will participate in film festivals in Belgium and Canada. Unfortunately he will be too busy with the promotion to attend them.

BabyJohn in the film had scenes in the water. He revealed, "I had to be under water for a minute, I already had a scuba diving license but I wasn't at my best that day. I didn't use an oxygen tank either so I ended up getting sick. I really was quite shameful."

Venus Wong Man Yik starred in the film TO LOVE OR NOT TO LOVE (CHOR LUEN YUT GEI: JIN NAM MUK YAU), which will officially open on March 2nd. Venus in the film again donned a school uniform and gave her first kiss to the "jerk" in the film Edward Ma Chi Wai. Although she said that she had a "memorable bed scene with nothing held back", in the end he unfortunately broke her heart thoroughly.

Venus' school uniform also included gym class shorts. Some online had nothing but praised for her uniform look. However Venue revealed that when her boyfriend Derek Tsang Kwok Cheung visited the set, he had no reaction to this school girl look. She said, "Earlier he visited the set with late night snacks, but when he saw my costume he didn't have any comment. In the film I had a business woman relationship guide look that was drastically different. He had quite a reaction to that and sad that he couldn't accept that costume. Haha, I think guys want their girlfriend to be innocent and simple."

Venue admitted that playing a school girl again was still fresh to her. She said, "My previous work had a memorable student uniform look too, each time it gave people a different impression. This time the school uniform felt particularly fresh, quite a difference from the story development in the second half as I went from a super innocent school girl to an independent woman, a love guru, I hope everyone would be reminded of this character when they think of first love from now on."

Gordon Lam Ka Tung with the film TRIVISA (SHU DAI CHIU FUNG) was nominated for the Hong Kong Film Award Best Actor. Yesterday he said on the radio that every Best Actor nominee was evenly strong. Each character was hard to play, which was also a good thing. Richie Jen (Yam Yin Jai) was also nominated. Ka Tung admitted regret that their co-star Jordan Chan Siu Chun was not. If all three were nominated he could not be happier. Who was the strongest competition? He said, "I can't tell, I haven't seen all the movies so it's very hard to evaluate. Instead I feel after years of hard work, I would get a lot of people's applause that night. It will be a huge encouragement."

Ka Tung mentioned that when he left television, some made fun of him for not knowing how to act. Did he feel like he has avenged himself today? Ka Tung said, "Many people want to project how they think onto others. I only felt very alone, as no one understood what I did. I was too lazy to explain. (Did they look down on you?) No, a good friend thought that my decision then was very silly. We ran into each other recently, he said, "I never expected that from you". I too had my own dream."

After his nomination his injured mentor Andy Lau Tak Wa encouraged him. Originally Wa Jai promised to attend the ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
