Bosco Wong (黃宗澤) understands that he cannot remain as an actor forever. Choosing to invest in the restaurant industry, Bosco will open an upscale oyster bar in Hong Kong. Food is his passion and Bosco has learned a lot in restaurant operations through this venture.
Before becoming an actor, Bosco thought about becoming a chef. When he was a young boy, he often cooked alongside his mother and grandmother. For his first part-time job, Bosco volunteered to work at his godmother’s food cart for free, reports an article on Popular Asians.
In 2011, Bosco fulfilled his dream by opening his first restaurant in Malaysia, which was later reopened as a bar/lounge. Although the bar generated good results, Bosco decided to withdraw his shares since he is often not in Malaysia. ”The price was okay! Profiting a little is enough.”
Besides taking on a more entrepreneurial route, it was revealed that Bosco is slowly saving up to buy his dream apartment. Wanting his mother to live more comfortably, he would rather spend money on properties rather than for his own hobby of buying cars.
Losing out on the Best Actor award every year, Bosco headed to mainland China to earn more money. However, afraid of being romantically linked with female stars, he isolated himself from the group after working hours.
“Actually, I’m very old fashioned. Every time I have to film in mainland, I would request that the production crew and I stay in different hotels. This ensure peace and quiet and I don’t have to socialize with others.”
Most recently, the 32-year-old actor is being linked with goddess Eliza Sam (岑麗香). However, Bosco reiterates that he only sees her as a lively younger sister. He revealed that has not been in touch with ex-girlfriend Myolie Wu (胡杏兒) but they will greet each other when they see each other.
When asked what type of girls he likes, Bosco said, “I like smart and independent girls. I hate clingy ones the most! They can’t have princess syndrome as I can’t stand it!” He added that he is a difficult person to deal with, “I don’t like to be bothered and nagged. I’m very busy and don’t have a lot of time.”
