    Default Andy Lau wants to invest in property in Singapore

    http://sg.entertainment.yahoo.com/bl...medium=twitter

    It seems like a lot of Hong Kong celebrities are interested in buying houses in Singapore.
    Just a few days after actress Carina Lau expressed interest in the property market in Singapore, one of Hong Kong’s “heavenly kings” Andy Lau said he had thought of buying houses in Singapore too.
    During a Wednesday press conference in Singapore ahead of the premiere of police-themed action-thriller “Firestorm”, in which he is actor and producer, he revealed that he only invests in properties as he’s not familiar with other types of investments.
    When asked by a reporter whether he had thought of buying property in Singapore, he said he had plans to do so.
    But they didn’t materialise as the property prices in Singapore are very high.
    The emcee of the press conference then told Lau that there are now cooling measures in place.
    Upon hearing that, Lau said he hopes the cooling measure would work and that the prices will lower.
    In fact, he said that he’s been “following the property scene in Singapore” and he has friends telling him which properties are good to invest in.
    Refutes rumours of wife’s pregnancy
    Lau also dismissed rumours that his wife, Carol Chu, is pregnant with their second child.
    Despite widespread reports of the couple welcoming a baby boy in March next year, Lau said he doesn’t have a second baby yet.
    But the 52-year-old thanked the media and fans for the blessings and said he’ll “work hard”.
    The couple currently have a one-year-old daughter.
    Bromance with Gordon Lam
    During the press conference, Lau also showed his close friendship with co-star Gordon Lam.
    The two constantly bantered with Lam telling reporters that it “felt great” being able to beat Lau in some fighting scenes in “Firestorm”, adding that he “waited for years” to do that.
    Lau also revealed that Lam, who seldom film love scenes, specially requested for “bed scenes” in the film.
    Jokes aside, Lam said he’s very thankful for Lau's guidance when he first entered the movie industry, while Lau praised Lam for his good performance in the film.
    "Firestorm" is directed by Alan Yuen and co-produced by highly acclaimed Hong Kong producer Bill Kong and Lau.
    It also stars Chinese actress Yao Chen and Taiwanese actor Wu Chun.
    The thriller, which opens in cinemas in Singapore on 12 December, tells the story of a policeman who crosses his own moral red line in order to catch a gang of seasoned crooks.
    It is also the opening film of ScreenSingapore 2013, an international film trade event held in Singapore.

    Bro BJ will be happy to hear this.

    I have the epiphany that the Hongkongers will be coming to buy Singapore property in 2014 .

    Hongkonger celebrities are spokesmen for the rich in Hongkong.

    Andy Lau said “Perhaps I am really quite expensive, but hey I’m worth it!” he quipped. “Or else I wouldn’t be in so many films right?”

    On the other hand, he feels Singapore property price is very high to invest in now. Are our properties not worth it?

    Many hk celebrities already own property in Singapore. Some use it as holiday homes.

    HONG Kong movie superstar Jackie Chan and singer-songwriter Emil Chau have bought four apartments at the upmarket Centennia Suites worth over $10 million.

    Chan is believed to have picked up three units making up an entire floor while Chau went for a three-bedroom apartment, all on the mid- to high floors of the 36-storey condominium on the former Kim Seng Plaza site, reported The Business Times on Thursday.

    They visited the showflat last Friday when they were in town for Sunday's Thong Chai Charity Night.

    The average price of a Centennia Suites unit is about $2,000 to $2,100 per square foot.

    The 97-unit freehold condominium project, opposite Great World City and facing the Singapore River, is expected to be completed in 2013. Http://superchanblog.blogspot.sg/201...-property.html
