Linda Chung asks her friends for money at her 30th birthday party

11 April 2014 / 2 years 6 months ago

Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣) recently attended a press conference for the Standard Chartered Bank (Hong Kong) Limited to promote the launch of a new credit card.

According to an article in Popular Asians, The Brother’s Keeper <巨輪> star, who turned 30 years old on April 9, expressed her love for shopping and revealed that she would often go over her credit limit. “I had over six figures of purchases once!” she revealed.

Asked if her credit limit was too low, Linda denied, “I am always increasing it. It’s just that during holidays, it’s very easy for me to go over the credit limit because I have to shop for my family.”

She shared that she purchased an expensive ring when she was in South Korea to film the TVB television film A Time of Love <愛情來的時候> earlier last year. Linda also received a ring as a gift from her boyfriend once, reasoning that it is “normal practice” for boys to do so.

What about Linda’s current rumored boyfriend, Philip Ng (伍允龍)? Linda immediately sealed her lips and said, “I’m not going to say anything anymore.”

Linda maintained that she supports financial independence before marriage. “We can discuss about joint accounts after marriage.” She then added marriage is a big milestone and planning should not be hasty. “Maybe by then I’ll have something else in mind. I admit that I’m not very well-planned.”

For her 30th birthday, Linda expressed that the best gift to her would be money. She prepared a donations box at her birthday party and urged her friends to donate however much they wanted.

“I want to donate that money to an orphanage. I already have one establishment in mind. It’s in Hong Kong.”

She also added that she would love to open her own charity foundation in the future.
