Like most Chinese around the world, Nicholas Tse (謝霆鋒) is in a hurry to wrap up his work in order to celebrate Lunar New Year with his family.
This year, the busy star will fly to Singapore to spend the holiday with his sons Lucas (謝振軒) and Quintus (謝振南) and ex-wife Cecilia Cheung (張栢芝).
Although Cecilia called off her alleged plans to immigrate to Canada, she remains hesitant about raising her children under Hong Kong’s media spotlight. She finally found a safer haven in Singapore and quickly relocated there in late 2013.
Nicholas, a dedicated father, has been visiting whenever he could. He was spotted at a popular local resort in mid-December and looked blissful as he enjoyed quality time with his beloved sons.
With one film currently in theaters and two more opening within the next two weeks, Nicholas has turned himself into a workaholic as he juggled film promotions and other job obligations.
He is still hard at work this week when many have already returned home to prepare for New Year festivities. Currently shooting a watch commercial, Nicholas braved the cold weather on January 28 in order to complete the project on time.
Despite his short appearance, over two hundred fans excitedly gathered around the set in Causeway Bay to greet their idol, reports a Jayne Stars article.
Even though he looked exhausted from his heavy workload, Nicholas did not complain one bit and was able to finish the scene in no time. He was then hustled to the next filming location without a break in between.
Although tiring, he is adamant about sticking to the schedule so that he can be reunited with Lucus and Quintus on new year’s day. He plans to stay in Singapore for just the weekend and will return to Hong Kong the following Monday.
