Stephen Chow reconciles with Johnnie To?

After 18 years (since Justice, My Foot), Johnnie To and Stephen Chow buried the hatchet. Last year, Manfred Wong and Wong Jing severely criticized Chow. Only Danny Lee supported him. Chow was seen bringing two bottles of wine to a French restaurant where Johnnie To was earlier entered. Is a future collaboration in the works?

Oh, interesting. Apparently Johnnie To swore never to work with him again after Mad Monk because he was so difficult, lol.  Also, I thought Danny Lee was still mad at him too, lol.

Nicholas Tse's son Lucas may be a genius

As if they weren't already the envy of many, now Hong Kong celebrity couple Nicholas Tse and Cecilia Cheung has made us regular folks, or at least, those of whom are parents, feel like kicking ourselves again.

Their first child, Lucas, who since his birth has been referred to as a 'prime-grade baby' thanks to his famous, photogenic parents, is now rumoured to be a genius with an IQ above 130.

While his mother and father have had their share of bad press-they were mired in the Edison Chen online sex photos scandals in 2008 soon after tying the knot in secret-Lucas has been making the news for all the right reasons.

The paparazzi relishes the fact the two-year-old tyke isn't camera-shy, and his inherited good looks and glamourous family background has made him a hit with advertisers. He was even speculated to have been offered HK$10 million (S$1.8 million) to front a milk powder commercial.

Believed to have been tutored since he was one and kept on a special-and costly-diet, , Lucas, now precisely two years and eight months old, is able to address all his relatives and pronounce English words.

The prodigy pattern isn't something that runs in the family. Dad Nicholas was a school dropout while Mom Celicia did not attend high school.

Since the start of this year, their son has been attending a renowned international school where the fees amount to HK$67,000 (S$12,000) annually. Rumour has it that his full potential is showing up in spades, and he recently scored more than 130 on an IQ test.

Nicholas and Cecilia are expecting their second son in May. Only time will tell if another prodigy is arriving.
